  • File Selection

The program Print2CAD can convert multiple files in one run. All selected files will remain in their original condition after the conversion. You can choose a target directory for the converted files. If no target directory is selected, the output files will be saved in the same directory as the source files.  Multi-page PDF files will convert each page of the original file into separate files. If in the configuration, the prefix Print2CAD- for converted files is activated, the program will not make any warning before overwriting of a target file.


  • Output Files

The following output files can be created when converting:

CAD files:      DXF or DWG

Raster files:  BMP, JPG, PNG, TIFF, RAW, GIF

  • Target Directory for Converted Files

A target directory for the converted files should be specified.
If a target directory is not selected, the output files are created in the same directory as the source files.
The converted files will have the prefix Print2CAD- (if activated in the configuration).

In this case, the original files will be overwritten without warning. It is therefore best to leave the prefix on until the original data has been copied to another directory or renamed.

  • Conversion of Directories

You may select a directory with source files. All files from this source directory are automatically converted into the chosen format, and saved to a target directory.


  • Version of the Target File

Print2CAD converts into DWG version 14, 2000 to 2022 and DXF files version 12, 2000 to 2022 compatible. DWG is a native AutoCAD format. DXF is a native AutoCAD data exchange format.

Most CAD systems understand DWG version 2004. The DXF version 12 is understood by many CAD systems, however the quality of the DXF data is not sufficient.
