We've use Creo Parametric to create dawings and then we export those drawings to pdf using the export feature......It usually works okay, but when we get to some assembly drawings, it will take 20 minutes to create one 3 page pdf. What the heck is causing that? Anyone else have this issue?

RE: Creo Creates PDF is slower than. . . . fill in the blank

If you're still having this issue, I have a psuedo solution.

Create a mapkey that generates the pdf and saves it to a folder/desktop. Then run the mapkey whenever you want to make the pdf.
For some reason it does it a lot faster this way. I've had it take similar times to generate small pdfs.
I'll give you mine:

Add this to your config.pro file (You can edit it with notepad)
then with your dwg open in creo, type "pdf"
It saves to your desktop in monochrome and 600 DPI (if I recall correctly)

Thanks, I'll try this tomorrow.

Appreciate the response.

We save as a plot file, distiller prints a much cleaner higher quality PDF. Faster than save as PDF.
