What is DWG?

The drawing format (DWG) is the native file format used by Autodesk's Autocad design software. It is used for storing 2D and 3D design information. Due to AutoCad's popularity as a software for computer aided design, DWG has effectively become the de facto standard for sharing CAD information.

When to Convert PDF to DWG?

You will want to harness Able2Extract's PDF to DWG conversion power when you receive plans or designs designed in CAD but that have been converted into a PDF document. If you need to change or edit the CAD drawing and you have the full version of AutoCad, the PDF to DWG will be your choice for conversion as it is able to retain a higher quality of information than converting to DXF.

How will this conversion save me time and increase my productivity?

It is surprising how often PDFs contain CAD drawings and are shared in the PDF format. This is especially the case if you are working with product and building plans or are providing professional services in the fields of engineering, architecture or design. As a consumer or business person, you may find a need for this conversion if you are doing a renovation to your home or office.

By converting the PDF into DWG, you will be able to recover the information that was originally in CAD. This will allow you to make changes to the information without having to recover the original file or re-enter the data into CAD. This will in turn save you lots of time and let you concentrate on the all important design aspect.
