Hello, I've looked around quite a bit for some sort of convert tools to do this task: convert PDF to DWG. Just wondering if there is anything out there that you guys recommend?

I have a few PDF files that I need to convert, so I can make some edits.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

If the content is vector, then most programs (such as Adobe Illustrator) will be able to recover the data. If the PDF file contains raster data, you can use some free raster to vector conversion program.

I have never tried to convert PDF to DWG before. But I have to admit that using a 3rd party tool whose way of processing is simple and fast can save a lot of time for us. I am almost a green hand on PDF converting work. I have only tried the free trial package of an image and document conversion tool to convert PDFs and do each step according to its tutorials about how to convert document and image using C#.NET. It is just one of many but I do appreciate it because it is totally manual. Even though I only tried its free trial package to convert PDFs and didn′t check the cost and licensing conditions, it worked great for me. And I am a newbie here, I hope I can learn how to PDF to DWG using ZWsoft products. Good luck.



Best regards,
Arron

If you wanna save these complicated steps and find a easy way, you can google PDF Converter and you will find many useful tools, or google how to convert PDF to dwg and vice versa to get instructive articles. Good luck:) I think PDF conversion programmes can enable to quickly convert files. i have use an image converter which can original layouts hyperlinks, Images and tables retained in word ,text, image, Epub, html.but i forgot download the wedsite ,go to google. By the way , pay attention to your system platform, select the suitable one . I use a PDF converter driver found on the internet . Install it and it becomes a selectable converter option.Then you can convert PDFs to many forms in any program at all, including Adobe Acrobat . Just open a PDF, select convert, and choice a form you want, then you can do pdf to dwg conversion and vice versa,the task will be finished in several seconds. if you haven't found a good choice , you can have a try. best wishes.

hi all, you can insert PDF as OLE object into dwg drawing, in this way you include the PDF graphic to dwg drawing.
