DraftSight PDF Import Tool and the Benefit to SOLIDWORKS Users

CATI’s monthly contribution to the SOLIDWORKS Blog was posted earlier this week. This month I took a look a newest tool for DraftSight the PDF Import tool. PDFImport converts and imports PDF files into entities you can modify in DraftSight and save in DWG or DXF. This add-in can also filter the entities created by color and create one layer for each to help you rebuild the layers. You may also use the batch conversion feature to convert many files in once. PDFImport works with the free version of DraftSight, as well as Professional and Enterprise.


Now the real benefit for SOLIDWORKS users is that we can now bring the PDF that we converted to a DWG into SOLIDWORKS.


This new tool has a lot of possibilities for all users to view the entire article please go to: http://blogs.solidworks.com/tech/2015/05/draftsight-pdf-import-tool-benefit-solidworks-users.html
