Use PDFs in AutoCAD Drawings

26 Jun, 2012


So you need to turn a PDF file into an AutoCAD drawing — but where to begin? AutoCAD 2010 added the valuable capability to bring a PDF file into AutoCAD as an underlay, so you can easily snap to the PDF and recreate the drawing. This method is so much easier than starting from scratch! (Available in standard AutoCAD since 2010.)
