Did you tried changing the PDF save as option.
To access PDF export options:
In a SolidWorks document, click File, Save As.
Select Adobe Portable Document format (*.pdf) in Save as type.
Set options, then click OK.
I'm trying to understand how this creates a raster pdf instead of a vector pdf?
Every time I print the pdf the fonts become dithered. I need the fonts to be raster instead of vector. Anyone have an idea on how to handle this.
