Information IRQ

    Alternative License Option: USB CodeMeter Hardlock

Print2CAD 2014 with OCR is available with an alternative protection system based on USB hardlock CmStick. This option allows the owner of the program to use their software on any workstation with the CMStick, which activates the program while plugged into the workstation. The CmStick is the heart of the CodeMeter Digital Rights Management system. It contains a SmartCard chip with a secure memory available for storing licenses. You can upgrade your Print2CAD 2014 license for an additional price of $123 (includes shipping & handling).

Note: This is a great option for a frequent traveler, and/or a person who alternates between a desktop and a laptop.

   Handling of Text:

In PDF or DWF files, text is usually defined as separate characters or groups of characters with their own insertion points. With the help of special internal methods, Print2CAD 2014 merges characters into strings and places these strings as texts in the DWG or DXF drawing.

If the PDF, HPGL, DWF or TIFF /JPEG file contains text which are exploded into lines, polylines, hatches or raster pictures you can use internal OCR (Optical Character Recognition) methods to convert these types of "text" into real and native text.

   Handling of Lines, Circles, and Arcs:

Normal well-created PDF files contain lines, hatches, circles, and arcs as PDF element paths or PDF element Bézier curves. Circles or arcs do not exist in PDF definition, they are Bézier curves or polylines. A human has the capability and intelligence to recognize circles and arcs, however for a software to have this same type of recognition takes a lot more effort. Print2CAD 2014 provides advanced methods for circle and arc recognition.

   Vectorization, OCR, Pattern Recognition, and Calibration:

Print2CAD 2014 converts and vectorizes raster pictures from PDF, HPGL, DWF, TIFF, and JPEG files. The input files can be done using a scanner or generating directly from CAD sytems in different quality levels.


With the help of Raster to Vector Methods Print2CAD 2014 can recognize all circles, arcs, and lines.

    Print2CAD 2014 Short Description

Print2CAD 2014 is able to convert PDF files into a DWG or DXF file, which can then be imported into any CAD system for editing. Print2CAD 2014 is an autonomous and CAD system-independent program. Print2CAD 2014 also converts DWG/DXF into PDF, TIFF/JPEG into DWG, DWF into DWG/DXF and HPGL into DWG/DXF.

Print2CAD 2014 not only uses conversion and vectorization methods, but also uses OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to reconstruct the content of a PDF or raster file. The program can also recognize the PDF text that has been deconstructed into polyline fields, and/or pixel pictures as full and editable CAD text.

Print2CAD 2014 recognizes the dashed or chain dotted linetypes, and will connect them to form a proper CAD line and/or polyline with a linetype. The lines may have any angle of inclination.

Print2CAD 2014 can precisely adjust, de-skew, and turn the converted drawing with the help of any number of arbitrary calibration points. You can be certain that a 3 foot thick wall will be 3 feet thick again after the conversion and not 2.9 feet thick. Likewise, a horizontal line will stay horizontal after the conversion.

Print2CAD 2014 converts files into DWG version 14, 2000 - 2014 or DXF version 12, 2000-2014. All vectors, lines, circles, arcs, surfaces, splines, text, and pixel images are transferred into DWG or DXF. The pixel images can be converted into vectors, embedded or stored in separate files. Special functions generate circles and arcs. PDF layer structure is supported, or if not available, this can be created on the basis of color or line widths. PDF characters are put together to create new text. PDF properties such as line widths and line types are also converted into CAD properties. Print2CAD converts PDF colors into CAD index of colors or full RGB colors. Print2CAD also supports TTF fonts. With multi-page PDF documents, you can specify which pages to convert.
