Anyone know of an easy way to turn autocad files into a Bitmap file or Jpeg.

Try the export command. You can export your drawing to a .BMP that way.

You can also use the bmpout command

if you need a high quality image you'll probably want to set up a plotter for image export thru the "Add-A-Plotter Wizard".

Please note I've *moved* this thread from the CAD Mgmt. General (http://forums.augi.com/forumdisplay.php?f=119) Forum to this one as I feel this particular Forum is a more appropriate place for such a topic.

Thanks, Mike
