How to create a multipart/form-data request in Scrapy?

Trying to create a query in scrape on the basis of the page that sends a POST request, which will redirected and returns a link to the PDF.
Here is the data from Dev tools:
pdfPath: \\wcp01zfs-03.clerk.local\files2\ORISPDF\
pages: 1
id: 22591587
mpages: 1
doc_id: 22591587
page1: image_from_file.asp?imageurl=\\ors_fs\ORImage\O\30338\O. 30338.0268.0001.tif

If you try formdata in the form of a dict to pass, that on one line the last backslash exabit quote. it turns out without backslash not the link.
If you just copy Formdata in the form of in the form of source code, some characters are not displayed correctly.
In the end, the redirect goes to the link type
and returns a 404.
while the working link looks like this -

Here is the form code that it is trying to imitate.
<td valign="bottom">

 <form name="courtform" action="" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">

 <input type="hidden" name="hostURL" value="" size="60">
 <input type="hidden" name="pdfPath" value="\\wcp01zfs-03.clerk.local\files2\ORISPDF\" size="60">
 <input type="hidden" name="pdfURL" value="" size="60">

 <input type="hidden" name="pages" value="1" size="60">
 <!--<input type="hidden" name="pages" value="1" size="60">-->
 <input type="hidden" name="id" value="22590889" size="60">
 <input type="hidden" name="mpages" value="1" size="60">
 <input type="hidden" name="doc_id" value="22590889" size="60">

 <input type="hidden" name="page1" value="image_from_file.asp?imageurl=\\ors_fs\ORImage\O\30336\O. 30336.1200.0001.tif" size="60">

 <input type="hidden" name="WaterMarkText" value="1" size="60">

 &nbsp;&nbsp;<input name="button" type="button" value="View PDF" onclick="javascript:ValidateAndSubmit(this.form)">&nbsp;&nbsp;
