Ok so I had a drawing in solidworks that I saved to Autocad. On my computer and when I print it out it looks almost identical to the solidworks. However when I send it to someone for them to use, the font is all crazy. How do I fix this?
They need to have the font used in your drawing on thier system.
What are you sending? dxf file? Solidworks file? Autocad file?
You can send them a pdf file as long as they don't need to make changes
or access the file in any way. This way you don't have to worry about the font at all.
It would look fine. Typically as long as it is a basic windows font they should be able to
see it as you have seen it. If not and they do need to access this file then find the font file and
send it to them.
I am sending them a .dwg and they do have to access it so they can edit there information
Hi Jessica, are you saving it with true type fonts? Also you can be certain to us fonts recognized by your customer or have them add the font to thier system. Thanks, Daniel
Is it a special font or something out of the norm?
Is this font used for all text on the drawing or can another standard font be used
so your drawing is more easily transfered.
Can you post the file to see if we can open and view it correctly? This can tell you if it is your file or their system.
Also let us know what they are using to view the file.
