Visual Integrity was
founded in 1993 to develop solutions to bridge incompatibilities between
applications on UNIX and Windows. Our first customers were technical writers who
needed to use drawings designed by engineers in proprietary UNIX systems in
their Windows-based publishing systems.
We knew were off to a good start when we
earned the confidence of our first customers - AT&T, Ericsson, Abbott
Laboratories, the European Space Agency and Texas Instruments. We've been on a
roll ever since. Now our product line includes indispensable add-ons for
Microsoft Office users as well as high-powered enterprise developer tools and
specialized programs for engineers and scientists.
We give the credit for our success back to our
customers and prospects who have helped us keep our heads out of the sand
and have driven most of the improvements to our core technology over the years.
As you have needed new capabilities, we have extended the engine to more than
handle them. Because our software evolves based on what you need, it always
delivers a solid and current foundation for end-users and developers alike. On
top of all this great feedback, we add in some pretty good ideas of our own as
Visual Integrity is still actively managed by
its two co-founders, Jan Homan and Jean Haney. Both have 25 years of
experience in the software industry. With pioneering vision and strong product
instincts, together the founders have ensured that Visual Integrity's products
have been in step with major market developments, trends and paradigm shifts
while striving to make practical products with exceptional value for end-users
and developers alike.
With successful years behind us, as we head
into a new decade, we rededicate ourselves to you. We hope to continue to be
a pleasant surprise in the software world - the company who reacts to your
requests with unexpected responsiveness or with useful information to help you
make a decision. We appreciate your trust and will continue to earn it.
Convert PDF to DWG and DXF Open and Modify PDF Files in CAD Programs
pdf2cad has been the top PDF to CAD Converter for more than 25 years. pdf2cad transforms PDF files into editable CAD drawings. saving hours of redraw time. In seconds, you’ll extract accurate DWG, DXF or HPGL drawings. Works with virtually any PDF drawing saved or printed from an application. Use the converted files in engineering, scientific and architectural programs including AutoCAD, TurboCAD and MicroStation.
pdf2cad is ideal for converting CAD drawings, floor-plans, network diagrams and organization charts. All entities, layers, line-types, objects and text are ready for editing. pdf2cad is not designed to convert scanned PDF drawings (raster PDF) into CAD formats. It requires computer-generated PDF files (vector PDF). To learn more, read The Difference Between Vector and Raster PDF Files

The PDF to DWG, DXF and HPGL format specific features have all been strengthened. Already best-in-class, new options center around security and layers.
New automatic Horizontal and Vertical Flip options when converting PDF drawing.
PDF to CAD rotate drawing
DWG support for merging all pages in a Multipage PDF file to one drawing. Pages can also be Horizontally or Vertically aligned.
Merge multiple PDF into one CAD drawing
DWG support for password protected PDF files.
Convert PDF to CAD password protected files
Added transparency fill support DXF/DWG format.
PDF to CAD transparency support
Scaling factor and support of Circle/Ellipse added to HPGL output.
Automatic font name mapping engine This handles font-name mismatches so you never notice them. More about font handling
Support of condensed text functionality in DXF/DWG
PDF layers selection option to convert
Convert objects of each PDF layer to a separate file.
More advanced options for handling image objects. If a file contains a lot of small images, they can be ignored in order to make editing easier and file size smaller.
Z-Order refers to the order of overlapping objects. The order in the PDF file is the default. You can place images at the back or reversed at the back of the drawing. This is useful when PDF images are transparent since IMAGE objects in DWG or DXF are opaque.
CONVERT IMAGES TO COLORED LINES
DWG and DXF don’t support image cropping. Using this option is useful with small cropped images. It converts them to color lines and crops them that way.
LINES TO POLY-OBJECTS
Option to convert connected LINE objects to one
What’s New with pdf2cad v12 System Requirements
64-bit only; 32-bit version retired with v11
Supports latest operating system releases including Windows 10.0 and Mac OS X Catalina
PDF 2.0 support
Advanced Features in pdf2cad
Advanced logic groups elements that belong together. These compound objects can be easily selected, moved, copied, and edited.
CAD files have many ways of looking at layers. Convert PDF to layers based on line weight, color, spot color, PDF layers or no layers. Combinations of color and line weight are also possible.
pdf2cad extracts all searchable text and renders it in editable words and text strings.. Missing or mis-matched fonts are automatically mapped or substituted for the best WYSIWG display.
pdf2cad intuitively reconnects individual elements to form shapes. A series of arcs becomes an ellipse and a set of lines a polygon.
CAD Format Options
pdf2cad generates DWG, DXF and HPGL. Virtually all CAD/CAM and technical drawing programs open at least one of these formats.
API & Commend Line
All the power of pdf2cad is available through in the PDF Conversion SDK and Command-Line Server. Perfect for developers, systems integrators and OEMs.
