I am working on a project for my town that I need to print a CAD drawing to a TIF image. I surveyed the old high school grounds that the Town now owns and is used as the Community Center and surrounding Parks.

The tax maps are incorrect in this area, and I am working with the Assessor's office to help get these corrected. We're pretty lucky to have a department that wants everything to be as correct and accurate as it can be.

Anyway, on to the purpose of this post. I am looking for a Free or inexpensive program that will let me print a CAD drawing to an image file, preferably a TIF image.

Any ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I don't want to spend a whole lot, as I probably won't use it but once or twice a year, if that.

Thanks again,
