CADSoftTools presents PDF to DWG Converter, a new free online service.

Free online PDF to DWG Converter converts PDF data into AutoCAD DWG files. Converted DWG drawings contain such editable entities as lines, polylines, hatches, arcs, ellipses and images.

One of the most important features of the service is conversion of texts including even non-Latin characters. In other words, all Unicode characters are saved not as hatch but as text. It is especially useful for drawings containing texts written in languages using non-Latin letters.

Besides, PDF to DWG Converter saves images directly into the CAD drawing. What is more object dimensions remain the same.
