CAD Conversion is the process of converting one type of CAD drawing into another.  As such, it includes activities such as:

  • Scan-to-CAD, or the conversion of paper drawings to either 2D or 3D CAD
  • Raster to Vector conversion, the process of converting scanned (raster) files to 2D CAD (vector) files
  • CAD translation, or the process of converting one CAD file type to another CAD file type, for instance, converting and AutoCAD file to a Microstation file
  • 2D to 3D CAD Conversion, which is requires converting 2D vector files to 3D files with depth and dimension
