My judgement of pdf2cad

I was first converting PDF's to insert into AutoCAD to trace over. I then discovered your pdf2cad to break down the PDF's into drawing elements (lines). I found that the line breakdown was mostly to small to be directly usable in most cases -- somewhat useful in certain cases. I may purchase, but I'm still trying to determine the value to me and how often I will need it. When must I decide and what is the cost and period of use?

Old and New Electrical pdf

This program works great with old and new pdf files. On some files it will give the correct Layers.


I feel the software is great! Only issue was when it converted it did not convert the layers as indicated on the web site

The best i tried

I tried a few of these PDF to CAD converters and none worked as well as pdf2cad. It was fast, accurate and pretty much perfect. I could even edit the text which surprised me. Don't compromise with an all-in-one program or a cheapie. If you want really accurate results, use this. The support is great too...

Works Good

pdf2CAD works great to convert vector pdf's to dxf, but I needed to convert raster pdf's also. Scan2CAD converts raster to vector then to dxf, so that covered everything I needed. I had to go with Scan2CAD even though it cost more. You get more! You don't need the bundle, since version 8 all you need is Scan2CAD.
