How to convert PDF to DWG With PDF to DWG Converter. by Vlad Tiganasu 9 months ago. If you are familiar with Autodesk's famous computer-aided design software, AutoCAD, then you might know what DWG files are. If not, DWG (short for drawing) is the vector file format used by AutoCAD to store 2D and 3D technical design data (like measurements, sketches, drawings, annotations, and so on).
Although DWG files are commonly associated with AutoCAD, these are also several other applications that can create, edit, and view DWG files, such as DraftSight or IntelliCAD (among others). As you probably know, PDF is a very popular file format that is widely used as a solution for sharing all kinds of electronic documents across multiple platforms and between various applications. Now, the question is why convert PDF files to DWG format, if PDF is such a popular format with great portability? Well, the one reason to do that is the fact that you might receive technical drawings or other graphics as PDF files and want to process them using CAD software, as standard PDF editors can't help you perform measurements or render images from 2D or 3D models. If you want to create DWG drawings from your PDF documents, I will show you how to do that using PDF to DWG Converter 2013 (Shareware $ 180. 00) by AnyDWG Software, Inc. I have chosen this application mainly due to the fact that it is considered a great conversion tool by many users and can turn entire folders containing PDF files to DWG drawings in no time. This is a shareware application, but a free trial version is available that limits you to converting a maximum of three files at the same time.
