- How do I add a CAD drawing into a word document? Please help!!!
Print to PDF, use the snapshot tool, zoom in a couple of times before right-clocking and resampling the image before ctrl v into your word doc. If you sample a PDF you get it at your screen resolution which can be very fuzzed so you need to balance document size against readability. I tend to insert images into a table cell as it stops tedious image wander.Posted 7 years ago
I've produced a bunch of reports using this method which on the whole has worked out pretty well and reduces the need for time consuming image manipulation.mjbMember
If it's a DWG/DXF file just go 'Insert – Object' or if you're using Autocad go to the Edit menu and click 'Copy Link' and then paste it in your Word document. After doing either of those click on the drawing in the word document and press CTRL+SHIFT+F9 and Word will convert it into a picture.Posted 7 years agoedsbikeSubscriber
When I've needed to do this I've used Photoview 360, which comes with Solidworks to create a rendering of the model. You can save the render as any type of picture file you like.Posted 7 years ago
I'm pretty sure there is a similar package for Auto cad/desk but can't remember what it's called.
If you like you can send me the parts/assemblies and I'll render them for you.turboferretSubscriber
I use a great little bit of software called Better WMF where you can copy and past directly from AutoCAD to word, and it'll automatically rotate, change colours/line weights etc as required.
Feel free to email me a drawing if you would like me to do any quick copying for you.

Edsbike- just use the save as jpeg option in solidworks- in options you get full control over image size in 2010, or prev versions did it atscreen resolution which is actually fine for inserting images into docs. Or you can just save as PDF and insert that. If it's the drawing rather than the model, you can also just save as a PDF or dxf/dag and insert either into word as native files.Posted 7 years ago
