The question of getting CAD/CAM drawings into FrameMaker pops up regularly in the FrameMaker forum. If you have anything to add, please visit the "FAQ Corrections and Suggestions" topic and post your thoughts there.

    Just an addition to the above. The CadPublisher product from John Walker Graphics now has a freebie base module that will allow you to do some basics. See http://www.jwgraphics.com.au/FreeVersion/free_version.html for more details.

    A new tool has recently surfaced that adds PDF generation capability inside of the CAD application. The tool, called Pushbutton PDF from Bluebeam Software, is described at http://www.bluebeam.com/4_1.asp

    From the description,it seems to be a very powerful utility, but I haven't downloaded the demo.

    Anyway, from a PDF you can export to EPS or use direct PDF placement (but not heartily recommended) in FM.

    FYI, starting with Acrobat 8, one can directly convert DWG to PDF. Right-click on a DWG file and select "Convert to PDF". You can even do multiple drawings to combine into a PDF.
