You cannt generated PDF by using lightning component direcly ..  use need to use the visualforce page and call its from the lightning exp ..


There are two methods to show a PDF in Lightning Component.
First, you can create a Visualforce page and embed it in the Lightning component. 
Second is, usage of PDF.JS library to directly use lightning component to display the PDF.

Hi 

You cannot directly generate PDF as we do in Visual force page using 'renderAs' But instead you can embed the visual force page in lightning component which inturns does the funtionality required.Please refer the below link:
