Spotting Difference Between Vector & Raster PDF
This is important since the two file types are converted differently. Vector PDF files are best transformed through data extraction. This is accurate and precise and involves minimal manual clean-up. Raster PDF files are traced since there is no data to extract. This is an approximation and requires operator involvement as well as manual clean-up. Visual Integrity is specialized in tools for vector conversion and will produce high-quality, accurate drawings from vector PDF input. If a raster PDF or scanned drawing is run through our software, we will turn the flat image into a tracing layer for manual work-up.
Convert PDF back to CAD formats
Use pdf2cad to transform vector PDF files into editable CAD drawings such as DXF and DWG saving hours of redraw time. In just seconds, you’ll extract an accurate drawing which can be easily modified in popular engineering programs such as AutoCAD, TurboCAD and MicroStation. Output formats include DWG, DXF and HPGL pdf2cad is ideal for converting CAD drawings, floor-plans, network diagrams and organization charts. It extracts editable CAD entities, layers, objects and text from any computer-generated PDF file while images from scanned PDF files are placed on a non-editable tracing layer.
