Vectorize PDF

PDF files offer a great way of sharing CAD drawings between colleagues. However, most CAD software does not directly support importing PDF files. This file format is unique because it can contain both raster and vector entities. Therefore software like Scan2CAD is required to convert the raster images in a PDF to vector. This conversion process is called ‘Vectorize’. Users can save the PDF to DXF or DWG to open in almost any CAD software.
