dwg to tiff ?

Looking for a way to convert a dwg file to a tif. Autodesk does this
but the quality of the tiff file is poor and the file size is too big.
any suggestions would be appreciated.
thanks

i would save it as a pdf file.
much higher quality and smaller size.
we have a link to a good free pdf writer in the free section of our web site.

If you have acrobat rel.5 or rel.6 (not acrobat reader!) you can export the pdf file as a tif file!! nimbus

3 solutions
1. get a friend with MicroStation to print it as a tiff (the files are still huge for if you want good resolution) 2. print it and scan it 3. pdf95 (free) print it as a pdf then print as a tiff (still huge)
good luck t.

Install a EPS-Plotter from the File Pulldownmenu "add neu printer" in AutoCAD(choose PostSriptLevel1 for example). Than print the file digital as a *.eps-file with the PostScriptLevel-printer. Go to Photoshop and open it. Give the resolution you think is good for you (it comes a dialog-box, everytime you open *.eps in Photoshop.) It takes a couple of minutes.Flatten all to the backgroundlayer. Save it as *.tiff-file with the resolution and quality you wish for.
That's the best way I know. Its unfortunately a pre-condition that you have Photoshop.

to convert our hpgl/2 plot files to TIF. Generally they will still be bigger than the plot file even with appropriate compression methods. But that is more a limitation of raster files in general.
