Help Your PDF Drawings Break Free

PDFs are an excellent format for sharing data; however, they leave you with a limited ability to edit and make changes to your data. With FME you can pull the drawings you have displayed in your PDF files and convert them to DWG files for use in programs like AutoCAD and Revit. With a variety of transformers available like the DWGStyler and CoordinateSystemSetter, you’ll be able to create workflows easily by dragging and dropping your tools in place. No coding required!

Automate PDF to DWG Conversions

Is there anything better than batch conversions? Probably. But, when it comes to your work day and converting data, being able to run workflows in the background that convert your data automatically definitely helps to make your life easier. With FME Server you can do precisely this. Set up a schedule or events so that your workflows can continue converting your next PDFs to CAD DWGs.
