    ok, since there are quite a few people who work in the tech world maybe some of you might have some ideas as to how to solve this issue.

    Problem: We have boat loads of outline autocad .dwgs
    What we need to do: display the drawing as an image on our website.

    current solution: put the outline in a specified outlined box in autocad that is 7.5in W x 3.25in H, take a screen capture , paste into Photoshop. crop image around the drwaing borders. generate transparent .gif, very combersome and the images my look like ok, they are not all the same size as it's nearly impossible to crop each image to the exact same width and height.


    So does anyone know if someone makes software to convert .dwgs to images ??
    we don't want to make a pdf, we do that for our datasheets. we want to be able to display the image on the site.

    so send your solutions this way please
