Plan Formats

Posted by Helen Hardcastle on Saturday, March 29, 2014 Under: Floor Plans
When your plans have been drawn by HH CAD Plans, they can be sent to you in a variety of formats. The best results are achieved when dwg files are converted to pdf format. The pdf plan can be enlarged on screen and when printed without losing any of the detail which has been put into the CAD plan. It can also be printed to an exact scale, so is very popular with Planning Departments.
Alternatively, many clients require their plans as jpg or png files. This is easy to do, and for many uses, the quality achieved is good enough, but if enlarged the plan can become distorted, and it can not be printed to scale.
GIF and WMF files can also be produced, but the quality of the image is not always sharp, so these formats are not recommended.
