AutoCAD drawing files to PDF using flow.

Hello All,

 

I am using the SharePoint library to store AutoCAD drawing files (.dwg). Is there a way for Flow to create a pdf file for the drawings?

Perhaps a third-party connector.

 

I know that AutoCAD from within can create PDF couple of ways.

 

  • Saveas PDF
  • Export to PDF
  • Print to PDF

May be Flow could leverage one of these methods.

 

Any suggestions?

HI @cadone 

 

I don't think there's an action to do that. However, now, with UI Flows, you can build one that opens it, converts it to PDF, and then sends it to a folder that you can fetch it later.

 

I know it's not ideal, but it's how you have for all types of things you want to do that are not supported directly with actions.

 

Can you please check if and let me know if you have any questions?

 

If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.

I see this is pdf connector is not premium (or maybe they forgot 😜  ). Is this free?  

How can I use this to create PDFs from AutoCAD drawings stored in the SharePoint library?
