Able2Extract PDF to AutoCAD Converter

Friday, April 11th, 2014

Able2Extract is a conversion tool to convert PDF to AutoCAD formats, as well as PDF to Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Publisher, HTML, image formats and much more.

According to a company spokesman, AutoCAD users may need to convert vector images and text locked in native PDF files to editable DWG or DXF files. AutoCAD offers the ability to save a drawing as PDF, so users can share their drawings, plan or projects with their clients, project leaders or other stakeholders. Professionals from various fields often choose to share their work (designs or drawings) in PDF because the PDF format is platform-independent and doesn’t require the native application to view the document. Another advantage of PDF is that it preserves the formatting of documents, so the sender (file creator/author) ensures that the recipients of the file see it as they are intended.

Our app strategy is built around extending and building upon those secure project environments.”
