NX8_drafting_pdf export problem

NX8_drafting_pdf export problem

Hi, maybe somebody could help me with an issue with NX8.
I'm exporting pdf from NX, from drafting mode, using plot or print an the result in the pdf file is ugly .
The text format is different in pdf file ( thicker ). Please see attached files.
Ides ? bigears
Thank you.

RE: NX8_drafting_pdf export problem

When you export the PDF, you can control the widths (see image). Also is the text output as text or as polylines?

RE: NX8_drafting_pdf export problem

Thank you for reply.
In my case it seems that the only problem in settings are with the text.
After pdf export the lines are ok but the text not. It look like the letters have a bold setting.
Even in the drawing template the settings are ok. I checked them again.
First picture is with my settings.
Second picture is the pdf export. Look please only at the text in the title block

With polylines setting at the text box, it looks better that in the picture above but still not enough.

Any more ideas?

Thank you

RE: NX8_drafting_pdf export problem

The only other thing I can think of, is that the font is changing from inside NX compared to the PDF.
I would look at what font is being used in NX as compared to the font that is in the PDF. It may be that the font style is changing when exported to the PDF.

Try a test and create text in a drawing in NX with different fonts & then export the PDF and see what the end result is.

There is the cgmdef.txt file in ...\UGII which controls the font mapping from NX to PDF. This may be what you have to play with if it is the font conversion.

There is no setting to control text as Bold or not.
