I use both AutoCAD and Inventor. Frequently, I need to output drawings from both programs to single printed or PDF documents. The issue I have discovered and am looking for help with is this:
I have chosen the exact same color blend for the color fills in my title block borders in each application. When I print them, whether it is to a printer or to PDF, the colors do not match. This matters to those up the chain from me.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to get the default color pallets to be the same in both applications? or in the direction to get the solution I need?
Thanks in advance,
Solved! Go to Solution.
If you use the "Autodesk Appearance Library" color pallet for both and not the default Inventor pallet for Inventor, they should match up. The "Autodesk Appearance Library" has been unified across platforms starting in IV2013 and moving forward.
You will also also want to use the same print driver for both.
You might want to try something like PDF995.
I have seen variation between different drivers.
Have a great rest of your day.
