pdf2cad converts engineering drawings saved as Adobe PDF files into DXF files that you can open and edit in AutoCAD and other popular engineering programs. They can then be edited and saved in native CAD formats such as DWG for AutoCAD and DGN for Microstation. pdf2cad also generates HPGL which is a popular CAD archival format.
pdf2cad is ideal for converting PDF-based CAD drawings as wells as floor-plans, network diagrams and organization charts into Microsoft Visio. This capability is key as more and more firms are storing and receiving drawings in the Adobe PDF file format and need to use them with Visio

pdf2cad is the best choice if you have PDF files created in engineering or office applications. It accurately generates CAD objects and editable text for you to edit. However, if you have scanned drawings, you'll need a "raster to vector" solution (read more). One of the best products we have tested is Scan2CAD. Many of our customers find that they need both types of tools so we have arranged a special bundle together with Softcover. The bundle combines their "Pro" version which converts PDF and a host of other formats into editable vectors with pdf2cad which converts any vector PDF. If you have your scans archived in TIFF or another image format , you may be able to use Scan2CAD Regular (read about the difference)

You can also view tips to determine whether you have a vector or raster PDF file. The simplest way is to open the PDF file up in Acrobat Reader and click on the drawing. If it is highlighted in blue, it is raster and you need a product like Scan2CAD. If nothing happens, it is a vector PDF and will convert successfully with pdf2cad.
