Hello,

Have you looked at installing a printer driver that saves to PDF format and printing the .MDL file to the PDF printer?

That was a good idea, Thx.
But, in fact I am talking about *.mdl from Lectra, an application for fashion. The only way to print is using their tool, Vigiprint. This one does not aload to print in *.pdf...
Any other idea?

Have you googled for an ".mdl to .pdf converter" program?

If it's ever been needed than someone has written the conversion tool.

Hello,

Have you actually tried installing a PDF printer driver? They show up in any application that uses the standard Windows printing interface.

Another option might be an image capture utility like TechSmith's SnagIt.

Hi,
.MDL format is a proprietary format of Lectra software ( Modaris ). You will require Lectra modaris to open those files. The other option would be ask someone who has Lectra modaris to convert the file into DXF format, After converting to dxf format you can now open that file to any software and convert it to PDF file.
Hope this help you

@drwho07: I've indeed checked, without any result...
@goretsky: A PDF printer driver can not print mdl files. I'll tried TechSmith's SnagIt ASAP.
@PatternS: Am gonna try to convert using Modaris, but am not sure this is possible, usually the conversion is only available with Lectra Convert.
@kenmabmcc: That doesn't work Crying or Very sad

Hi,
Lectra modaris had a capability in exporting mdl file to dxf which you can manipulate to any software you want. If you want send me the file and I will convert it for free.
