This PDF export service is only available via our ADMIN solution, due to a PDF rendering engine that can only run in our system.
Setting up View & Layers
First of all you need to define a format for the view. Therefore go to the Product Builder and click View Options in the upper-right corner. Scroll to the "PDF Output" section and here you can choose from predefined formats (A1, A2,....) or enter a custom size in MM. After clicking the "Save" button, a blue rectangle (printing box) will be added to the canvas.
This printing box can be scaled in the canvas to fit in the area that you want to export in the PDF.
If you do not define a format/printing box, the whole canvas will be exported in the PDF. To calculate the size in millimeter for the page, we use the canvas size in pixels and 300 DPI in the calculation (pixel / dpi * 25.4). We highly recommend to choose a format/printing box from the View Options.
If you want to exclude specific layers from export, you can easily do that by selection the layer and enabling the option "Exclude from Export" in the Modifications tab.
