A good quality architectural PDF to CAD conversion is an essential day to day activity in the modern times. One would like to ask, however, why do we need architectural PDF to CAD conversion and what are its benefits?
PDF (Portable Document Format) is perhaps the most popular file format presently for various reasons. It is developed by Adobe systems and Adobe reader required to read PDF files is usually pre-installed in all the computers. Viewing it therefore is very simple, and it can also be viewed on most web browsers. PDF files enable viewing of each page in sequence and give an exact idea of the document as the viewed pages are exactly as they would look in print.
CAD files are generally used by architects and engineers for design and drafting purposes. These are usually DWG or DXF files that are binary files. Architectural work requires creation of heavy two dimensional or three dimensional designs, and this design data is stored in the DWG format.
DWG files are very heavy and it is difficult to email them to interested parties, so these files are converted into PDF format and emailed to the desired destinations. Portable documentformat files can hold the data in original format and when these files are reconverted into the original format, they don’t distort the data. That’s why when the files are reconverted into DWG files, they can easily be viewed, modified and printed as desired.
