In your CakePHP top level folder (the one that has composer.json, src/, vendors/, config/, webroot/) run:

composer require tecnickcom/tcpdf

You should now have vendor/tecnickcom/tcpdf

Now in a controller src/Controller/<ControllerName>Controller.php create an action:

public function pdfView($schedule_id = null){
          $this->set('title', 'My Great Title');
          $this->set('file_name', '2016-06' . '_June_CLM.pdf');


Then create a view in src/Template/<ControllerName>/pdf_view.ctp

class xtcpdf extends TCPDF {


$pdf = new xtcpdf(PDF_PAGE_ORIENTATION, PDF_UNIT, PDF_PAGE_FORMAT, true, 'UTF-8', false);

// use the examples at http://tcpdf.org to create a pdf

$pdf->Output($file_name, 'I');
