You might want to check out OttoPDF.      Its' a freeware program that will translate AutoCad drawings into PDF files.

                Supports grayscale or color output.
                Create images up to Architectural E-size.
                Use AutoCAD .SHX font files.
                Use XREF drawing files.

            OttoPDF can't...

                Use TrueType fonts.
                Use Raster Image entities.
                Use embedded font or xref paths unless they conform to the setting of the
                "ACAD" variable.
