Convrt DWG file to PNG/JPEG

hi all

i wan to convert lot of files from DWG to JPG or PNG
My problem is that i cant estimate correclty the dimensions of DWG files and when i convert the size has huge X,Y dimensions, small size of actual design. The result is a huge image file , difficult to use...

Is there any program that can automaticallly estimate those dimenstions (based on file) and create the optimal image file?

Thank you

Just let the images be thhe size they are. Then, use a seperate program to process the images. Snag-It or a lot of other image utilities can batch process images and downsize them in various ways as well as do other processing.

Another option would be to write code that would modify the plot parameters when plotting the images. This could be done in any of the AutoCAD API's. You'd then run that code via a script to do the plotting.
PS: I've never used it but CAD Publisher is what a lot of companies (like Window Manufacturers) use to publish their CAD content into catalog artwork. It might have some options to do this sort of thing. CAD Publisher is really the cadillac of utilities when it comes to converting CAD drawings to print ready images.  You can even do things like assign fill patterns to enclosed polylines on certain layers.
