How to Convert a PDF to DWG freeware

By Greyson Ferguson

A PDF file is commonly used to send data over the Internet and via email as it locks in the formatting of the file. PDFs originate from a wide variety of different files, ranging from word documents to images and even personally-designed content. However, a PDF is not easy to edit, and if you are looking to import the data into an AutoCAD program you must convert the PDF into the default AutoCAD format of .dwg.
