I am looking for a way to convert PDF files to DXF. I receive a lot of PDFs that I need to draw in SolidWorks, but I'm wondering if there is an easy way to to take this PDF and quickly convert to DXF where I can easily get dimensions as needed.
See if this online converter does what you're looking for.
If you have access to CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator they will open pdfs. If the line work is still vector based you can save the out as DXF.
I have access to Illustrator, so that would definitely work. Do you know if most PDF's line work vector based?
Historically I've found most CAD generated pdfs are vector based. It's how I get vector images of my work out of solidworks. I've even found extrusion catalogues where I can open them up, save the desired profile as dxf and they're to scale ready to be saved as weldments. No promises the pdfs you receive are vectors though, unless you receive them from me.
