pdf to dwg

Recommended Posts


If I import a pdf file into a vectorworks file and then export the vw file to dwg is the whole file an editable dwg file in autocad? Has anyone ever tried this?

It depends how the PDF was created in the first place. If it was made in another CAD system, you will be able to get to the geometry by ungrouping the PDF. (YOu will also get a large white rectangle that you'll need to delete to find the stuff.

Hope that helps
