Developing a PDF to DWG Convertor RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi i am developing a pdf to dwg converting software with vb, The thing is i have not example codes to show because this is all new to me, but i can tell you what i want from the convertor.

    first i have a search button to search for the pdf

    then an output button for different versions for the dwg

    and then the convert button which will hopefully convert it

    and now i am stuck on what to do with the coding

  • Hi btickle1,

    Thanks for your post.

    I think you will need some third-party component to convert PDF file to DWG file.

    As PDF (Adobe) and DWG (Autodesk) are not Microsoft product or part of .Net, I’m afraid that your topic is unsuitable here. I will move this thread to off topic forum. You can find the Adobe Developer Connection with the help of this link: http://www.adobe.com/devnet.html.

    Sorry for any inconvenience and have a nice day.
