PDF Document Format

PDF Converter

PDF stands for ‘Portable Document Format’ file. It was developed by Adobe so people could share documents regardless of which device, operating system, or software they were using, while preserving the content and formatting. The format has evolved to allow for editing and interactive elements like electronic signatures or buttons. The PDF format is now a standard open format that isn’t just available under Adobe Acrobat. It is maintained by the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO).

PDF files aren’t typically created from scratch, but are usually converted, saved or ‘printed’ from other documents or images before sharing, publishing online or storing. They can be viewed on almost all devices. Creating a PDF can involve compressing a file, making it take up less storage space. You would typically create a PDF if you wanted to ensure document fidelity, to make it more secure, or to create a copy for storage.

DWG CAD Format

DWG Converter

DWG is a file format that was first developed in the late 1970s and licensed for AutoCAD, a computer-aided design (CAD) program by AutoDesk. The format’s name DWG is short for ‘drawing’ because the files are typically used for creating technical drawings or blueprints by engineers, architects, builders, or designers. Although the format is over 40 years old, it’s still considered an industry standard. DWG files usually comprise 2D or 3D vector graphics, in addition to metadata.

While DWG was developed for AutoCAD, you can usually also open and edit these files with other CAD programs like CATIA and SolidWorks, as well as with CorelCAD and Adobe Illustrator. Professionals creating or editing DWG files will usually convert them into PDF if they need to share them with others who don’t have specialist software or aren’t CAD trained.

You can convert PDF to DWG using downloadable software from AutoCAD, CorelDraw or other vector software providers.

You can convert an image to DWG using a conversion tool or specialist software. Software such as AutoCAD, CorelDraw and others can convert raster images to CAD formats.

Simply convert your image file to PDF, and then again from PDF to DWG, using Zamzar’s free web-based converter.

If you have the AutoCAD application, you can import an image by clicking the ‘Insert an Image’ button in the ‘Home’ tab, selecting your image from the files on your device, and then clicking to insert the image. If you don’t have AutoCAD and need to turn your image file into an AutoCAD format, you can do this by first converting the file to PDF, then converting the PDF to DWG - you can use Zamzar’s free online converter to complete both steps.

You can open a PDF file in AutoCAD using the ‘PDF Import’ command: click ‘Insert’, ‘Import’, ‘PDF import’. You’ll then be shown a dialog box to allow you to choose your PDF file from your device. If you don’t have AutoCAD, you can convert your file from PDF to an AutoCAD format using Zamzar’s online conversion tool. Visit our homepage and use our free tool to convert your PDF to DWG in three simple steps.

You can open a DWG file with specialist software such as AutoCAD, CorelDraw, Microsoft Visio or Adobe Illustrator.

Simply upload your file in step 1, select the format you would like to reformat your file to in step 2, then confirm the conversion.
