Print2CAD converts PDF files into a DWG or DXF file, which can then be imported into any CAD system for editing. Print2CAD is an autonomous and CAD system-independent program. Print2CAD also converts DWG/DXF into PDF, TIFF/JPEG into DWG, DWF into DWG/DXF and HPGL into DWG/DXF.
Print2CAD 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 recognizes the dashed or chain dotted line types, and will connect them to form a proper CAD line and/or polyline with a line type. The lines may have any angle of inclination.
Print2CAD can precisely adjust, de-skew, and turn the converted drawing with the help of any number of arbitrary calibration points. One can be certain that a 3 foot thick wall will remain 3 feet thick after the conversion and will not be 2.9 feet thick. Likewise, a horizontal line will stay horizontal after the conversion.
Print2CAD converts files into DWG version 14, 2000 - 2015 or DXF version 12, 2000-2015. 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 a 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, one can specify which pages to convert.
Print2CAD recognize 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 software to have this same type of recognition takes a lot more effort. Print2CAD provides advanced methods for circle and arc recognition.
Print2CAD converts and vectorizes raster pictures from PDF, HPGL, DWF, TIFF, and JPEG files. The input files can be done using a scanner or generated directly from CAD systems in different quality levels. With the help of Raster to Vector Methods, Print2CAD can recognize all circles, arcs, and lines. With the help of OCR (Optical Character Recognition), Print2CAD can recognize Texts. With the help of Pattern Recognition, Print2CAD can recognize dash or dash dotted line types. With the help of coordinate calibration, Print2CAD can correct the accuracy of the converted drawing.
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 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 one can use internal OCR (Optical Character Recognition) methods to convert these types of "text" into real and native text.
