Topic: Best way to convert AutoCAD files?
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 105583

My company produces technical reports that contain AutoCAD drawings, sometimes as many as 50 to 100 drawings per report. We are just beginning to send these reports out as PDFs rather than hard copies. The problem is that each drawing file is about 100-200KB. When combined they create a huge PDF (around 15,000KB). I am using Acrobat 6.0 Standard, and AutoCAD 2002. Can anyone recommend a better method of compression, or should I look into purchasing a PDF making product better suited to work with AutoCAD?
Thank you!
