What steps do I take if I want to convert my CAD drawing to Gerber format for making printed circuit boards or to a file format for CNC?

I can't seem to export my drawings successfully.  The results are very small and the lines hardly show up at all.  I've tried using .PDF and .EPS with no luck.  In addition, when I go to print and "print to PDF," the page is blank.  Finally, when I "print screen" I get image I've selected however there is some sort of gradient that reduces the quality of the image.  Are these "features" built-in to the demo to limit its use, or do they appear in the full version as well?

When creating file for a cnc machine I would recommend exporting the file to .DXF.

To create a .PDF in TurboCAD for Mac the drawing will need to be set in page layout to fit the selected size page for the .PDF.
