Take your conversions to the 'power user' level with granular control all conversion settings.
Over the past 20 years we've built Scan2CAD with compatibility at its core. Your converted vector designs will be supported in almost any CAD/CAM & CNC application.
Ensure your converted vector designs are perfectly scaled with Scan2CAD's flexible scaling options.
The brilliance of Scan2CAD lies in its object recognition engine. With Scan2CAD's object recognition you don't have to settle for simple raster-to-vector conversions with all elements being represented by beziers or polylines. Scan2CAD's object Recognition defines converted objects as their respective vector element. Arcs in your images become vector arc entities. Dash-lines become vector dash-lines and so on...
With Scan2CAD's Optical Character Recognition (OCR) you can convert text in your images to editable vector text strings. Edit the text within Scan2CAD or any major CAD/CAM application such as AutoCAD and Solidworks.
In order to achieve the best raster to vector conversion results, you may need to clean your raster image before converting. Scan2CAD offers a tool-set of automatic raster cleaning features.
Thresholding forces pixels in your image to either black or white. The Threshold tool is a simple - yet powerful - tool for fast image cleanup. In many cases a simple threshold can remove much of the noise in a poor quality image.
Much like thresholding, Scan2CAD's Color Segmentation is used to reduce the colors in your image. But unlink thresholding you can choose to keep as many or as few colors in the image as you wish. Color Segmentation will find adapt to find the nearest color in a defined palette for every pixel in your image.
Speckles can be described as small, unwanted clusters of pixels on your image. These speckles are usually present in low quality images or scanned paper. Scan2CAD will automatically search through your image looking for speckles of a user-defined size and remove them all. Automatic speckle removal can save you hours when compared to manually erasing 'noisy' image areas.
Holes are unwanted clusters of pixels within lines or shapes. Holes can ruin the appearance of smooth lines and cause many issues when converting your designs. Luckily Scan2CAD's hole removal tool will automatically clean your image of holes in a few clicks.
If your designs contain lines which are broken and jagged then Scan2CAD's Thicken Lines tool could help bleed pixels within the line, forcing them to become smooth and connected. Unlike a simple pixel bleeding effect, Scan2CAD will specifically identify lines within your design to thicken and clean.
With a full suite of raster editing tools, you can transform your images before (or after) converting them to vector. Whether you wish to draw, move, scale, erase or tweak your image you can do all this without having to leave Scan2CAD.
Scan2CAD's vector precision editing tools give you the power to draw, edit and transform your vector designs with simple yet powerful actions.
Within the design of our vector editing tools you will find small details which make a big difference. Such as options to orthogonally snap lines and the power to convert existing vector elements to other vector types.
Batch conversion is the perfect solution for those who have many images which all require the same image processing and conversion settings. Simply use Scan2CAD’s automation scripts to define your settings, choose your input & output folders and set Scan2CAD's Batch Conversion off. Go grab a coffee and come back to a complete set of converted designs
Utilize Scan2CAD's Automation feature to control any feature of Scan2CAD with simple scripts. We love hearing about how our customers and technology partners are using Scan2CAD's automation feature to power their company's conversion needs.
With multiple flexible license options (Standard, Floating Network and Offline) you can license Scan2CAD in a way that works for your business.
