BackToCAD Software converts PDF files into a DWG or DXF file, which can then be imported into any CAD system for editing. BackToCAD Software also converts DWG/DXF into PDF, TIFF/JPEG into DWG or DXF and HPGL into DWG/DXF. BackToCAD Software not only uses conversion and vectorization methods, but also uses OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to reconstruct the content of a PDF or raster file. The BackToCAD Software can also recognize the PDF text  that has been deconstructed into polyline fields, and/or pixel pictures as full and editable CAD text.  BackToCAD Software can precisely adjust, de-skew, and turn the converted drawing with the help of any number of arbitrary calibration points.
