Any CAD package that does standard Windows printing for its output  provides
the 'Print to File' capability. (I presume that most, if not all, CAD
packages do.)

If you were to install the printer driver for the same printer type as this
other company uses, you can email them the print output file and they can
print it out themselves.

Anybody know a reason that this wouldn't work? Might the .prt file be too
large to be convenient? I've never tried this, but it may be a viable option
in this situation.

Regards, Bob

In fact you may install the PostScript Printer driver, to get the more
portable output (Usually I use a PostScript driver for as simple/old printer
as possible eg. HP LJet 3 + PS). Then it should be possible to preview it
on the screen with GhostScript, or convert to pdf with ps2pdf for
wieving/printing from Acrobat or xpdf.

As an alternative to having a fax machine, there's also a cheap  program
called MightyFax. It costs $19.95 and has a 30 day free trial period. Very
well worth it for what you get.

http://www.rkssoftware.com/mftrial.htm

It installs as a printer driver and allows you to send any print output as a
fax through a modem. It's great for the occasional faxing that I do and it
has a receive capability as well.

If email is required, maybe a screen capture could work.  Also, if you have
a fax-modem, some of them provide printer drivers drivers for "print to
fax", which is sending a fax without any paper involved.

It must be a south Santa Clara county kinda thing; it works well for me in
Morgan Hill. :=)

(I didn't get down to the Garlic Festival this year but it sure smelled
great from up here.)

Ah, yes, so do the free fax utility shipped with (all?) Windows.

On Win98 it´s a smal trick as it is not included in the installation, but in the install CD there is a folder of win95 utilities where the fax can be installed from.

I thought it ws not included in win2k until i connected a fax modem and win2k automagically installed the modem and continued then to install the fax utility!
Actually have worked without any problem!

Although I sometimes hate windows, I have paid for it so I want to use everything that works...
