Export DWG/Ares files to PDF

Request the ability to export DWG / Ares-viewable files to PDF.  Export to PDF is a commonly used tool here for light users accessing Onshape native drawings, either if multiple viewers are looking at the same drawing, or if they just want a simpler experience of the PDF-viewable.  However, we do not have that option for DWG files.  The window to view DWG files in the Ares-viewable is smaller, plus we would like the ability to integrate DWG-based PDF's with other systems (PLM, etc.).

    @Doug_Jones Are you asking for this to be an option on the Onshape tab?  Kudo does allow this today for a DWG
