Dear Bentley Family,
When we work on our any General Arrangement Skid(GAS)'s ISO drawing, the drawing file takes approx. 30min to 1 hour for just plot preview and creating the pdf file.
Also after the creation of pdf,sometimes few parts are missing in the pdf.
The sample pdf is attached here.
Please let me know any solution/setting for fast ploting and fast pdf creartion for such drawing.
Waiting for your earliest reply.
Please let me know what is the meaning of etransmit package in AutoCAD or do you want to say export package?
Also please let me know steps for creating etransmit package in AutoCAD.
So that we can test at our end.
Here we all are using standalone AutoCAD license. Is it still require to test on vanilla AutoCAD?
Waiting for reply.
Thanks & Regards ,

In AutoCAD go to File>Eetransmit , follow steps and save zip package locally. With eTransmit, you can package a set of files for Internet transmission. Easy way to gather related files in one zip package. Extract it and open main AP Isometric drawing, do not load AutoPlant modules. By saying Vanilla AutoCAD I mean that this is AutoCAD session with out any loaded AutoPlant modules.
Please let me know results.
Previously it was taking 30min for just plot preview and 35min to create pdf file.
After trying your Eetransmit way, its reduce to 20min for plot preview and 22min to create pdf file.
Though it save our approx. 20min , but still want to know any more fast way to increase the plot preview and pdf creation performance.
Thank you for your reply. Would it be possible to get Eetransmit package for testing?
As well have you compared timing between ruining Plot preview in vanilla AutoCAD and AutoCAD with loaded AutoPlant?
What pdf engine you are using to create pdf?
