This standalone tool is used to convert PDF files directly to DWG or DXF file formats used by CAD applications. It runs in Windows and does not require the presence of any CAD application. The results are usable vector geometry and text. CAD users often receive a PDF file when they need a DWG. Attempts to screen capture the PDF results in a low resolution image that doesn't plot well and can't be snapped to. Using our conversion tool, if the PDF file contains vector geometry, if will result in highly usable polylines in CAD. Text annotations contained in PDFs become text objects.
Details: A single dialog controls the process of converting PDF files.
||Use a standard Windows open dialog to select your PDF file.
||The preview window lets you visually confirm the contents of the selected page before processing. You can zoom in to examine details or zoom extents for the big picture.
||Since PDFs can contain multiple pages, you can browse and select pages with a single click before processing.
||Even large files process in seconds, with a visual status bar at the bottom.
- Visual preview before conversion.
- Handles multiple page files with ease.
- Generates paths as polylines for smaller file size.
- Command line support for batch processing.
- Runs as 64bit application on 64bit OS.
- R13-2007 DWG (Drawing Format)
- R13-2007 DXF (Drawing Exchange Format)
This product imports but does not convert PDF objects.
||What appears as linework in a PDF may be a raster image. During import they will remain as
raster images, they are not vectorized. If your PDF came from a scanner, you have an image!
Sometimes high resolution scans look like vectors but they are not. To check for yourself, open
the PDF in Adobe's free viewer and zoom to 800%+ to see the rough edges confirming an image.
||What appears as Text in a PDF may be vectors or filled paths. During import they will remain
as such, they are not converted to text objects. To check for yourself, open the PDF in the
Adobe free viewer and use the find tool on what appears to be text. If the viewer highlights
it, your results will be mtext objects.
||PDF files are essentially plot files. Do not purchase this application expecting it to do vector
character recognition or vectorization of raster images!
