Convert DWG to TIFF, AutoCAD to TIFF

The TIFF Image Printer is a virtual Windows® printer that can convert DWG to TIFF. While a DWG file is a proprietary format associated primarily with Autodesk’s AutoCAD software, you can also use various CAD software programs to open and print DWG files. They are commonly known as drawing files and typically contain architectural plans and 2D/3D models.

You can convert DWG to TIFF and other CAD formats like DXF and DWF to TIFF just by opening and printing your drawing to the TIFF Image Printer instead of your regular printer. TIFF Image Printer supports all larger ANSI and ISO architectural paper sizes used in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) fields.

TIFF Image Printer is a pdf to tiff converter that converts to TIFF any document than can be printed.

Convert DWG to TIFF with TIFF image Printer.

Open and Print Your DWG Drawing

Open your drawing in AutoCAD and select the Plot icon from the toolbar or File->Plot from the application menu. If you’re using a different CAD application, follow your typical steps when printing a drawing from that application.

Open your DWG drawing and select the Plot icon or File - Plot to create your TIFF file.

Set the Printer/plotter to TIFF Image Printer 12 printer. When plotting drawings on a large paper size, click the Properties button to set the matching paper size on the printer. Click OK to plot your drawing.

Select TIFF Image Printer 12 and set any custom paper size needed to convert your DWG to TIFF

Choose Your TIFF Name and Location

In the Save File prompt, choose where to save your new TIFF image and make any changes to the file name. The default is to use the original DWG drawing name and save the file to your Documents folder.

Choose a name and location for your new TIFF image.

Create the TIFF You Need

Next, in the Save as type drop box, select a printer profile to use when we convert DWG to TIFF. Choose the Color Optimized TIFF profile if your drawing contains color or Monochrome TIFF if you want a black and white TIFF image.

A printer profile is a collection of settings the printer uses when creating the TIFF image. It controls the type of TIFF, color and compression options, custom naming, and many other TIFF file options. You can use one of the three included profiles or create custom profiles using the Profile Manager application from the TIFF Image Printer Dashboard.

Select a printer profile to use to convert DWG to TIFF.

The last step is to click Save to create a TIFF image from your original DWG AutoCAD drawing.
