Topic: Autocad dwg to pdf increases file size

Please help.

We are trying to convert a dwg file (Autocad) to pdf so that it can be sent to users who do not have Autocad so that they can view the drawings.

Usually this works like a charm, but for some reason, some of the conversions from autocad to pdf actually increase the file size of the reslutant drawings in pdf format by at least 5 fold. Whereas previously it would decrease them by at least that factor.

We have tried everything we can think of, and yes it is probably an autocad issue - but if you know what it is I would be very grateful....
