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?
