Developer's Description

Pdf2cad generates scalable and editable CAD drawings for use in AutoCAD, BricsCAD, Microstation and other CAD, CAM and CNC systems. Convert PDF, EPS and AI into DWG, DXF and HPGL. pdf2cad is a popular and proven application that converts PDF files into industry-standard, editable CAD formats. Just select the PDF file you want to open, specify your conversion options, and convert the file into the CAD format you need.

Pdf2cad is accurate, fast, and robust. It will quickly become an indispensable tool for unlocking and editing the objects and text in the PDF files you receive. Whether you work in Architecture, Engineering, Construction or Manufacturing, you're probably storing and exchanging designs, schematics, floor-plans and other technical drawings in the Adobe PDF file format. CAD engineers, CNC operators, partners, and supply chain members need to be able to view, test, edit, or reuse these documents. pdf2cad provides the bridge. It accurately reproduces lines, shapes, text, and scale of the original drawing in the DWG,DXF and HPGL formats. The key to a successful conversion is to know what type of PDF file you have. There are two types of PDF: vector PDF and raster PDF. If the PDF file was generated by another application, it is most likely a vector PDF file. This is the ideal input format for pdf2cad which will return scaleable, editable vector objects, and text with the highest degree of accuracy. If the PDF file is a scanned drawing, it is a raster PDF and pdf2cad is limited to raster-to-raster conversion. This will produce a reliable tracing layer for your CAD system but it will not be editable at the object layer. The only options for converting scanned drawings into editable objects include either electronic tracing with a raster-to-vector software program or through manual redrawing. For raster PDF files, pdf2cad will create a tracing layer to help with redrawing. A command-line version of pdf2cad is also available.
