without using mdi active document is there possible to plot a drawing file from vb.net?

It's not possible. It must be rendered out to Print.

That would be my first answer aswell however the AutoCAD 2013 Batch version is capable of exporting to PDF without a visible screen. The need for a display for rendering is there for not valid anymore.


That raises also  the question:  can we use this AutoCAD batch version as a service process?
