    Hi NoahAva ,
    Pdf is really a good format in terms of digital drawing.But often the dwg format is used more in engineering aspect, as pdfs are not easily editable.On the other hand dwg files are easily editable and can used in other software packages than Autocad,like Solidworks etc which really makes it a good format.
    Hope it helps.

    My advise would probably be very amateur but then the easiest way i could think of.

    Google yourself a converter, its that easy! i google my file converters all the time and they work perfectly. Its actually convenient cause you wont have to install a software and all, you can convert it straight up so its really simple.
    I suggest though that if you are to convert numerous files then you really have to download and install a software

    Hi Noah, If you have any copy of a CAD drawing in pdf, you can convert it to (.dwg or .dxf) to save your time and to make your drawings very quickly without creating unnecessary stuff which you are already having. Don't go for any online converters, your data might get stolen by hackers. Please use any CAD software which is having inbuilt PDF to DXF or DWG...
    I suggest you, go for below link to download an inbuilt .pdf to .dxf CAD software

    I tried the PDF in DWG converter similar functionality useful to me in with graphic 2D-drawings that programmers helped me to carry out

    Through the utility, I can transfer pdf to dwg, preserving the original quality and even the fonts from the original file. In fact, through PDF in DWG,
    you can open a file created in AutoCAD 2005 and later. This universality is useful especially.

    Hello Community,

    Thanks Emily for your recommendation. In search of the same converting a PDF file to Drawing format, I found ActCAD 2019 Professional having the inbuilt Open PDF to Edit feature. This feature came really handy to me as I can now convert my PDF drawing files to DWG format without the threat of data loss and threat of getting my drawings stolen.

    You can also try the software and take the advantage of Open PDF to Edit Feature.
    Click to Download ActCAD 2019 Professional.

    Thanks and regards,
    Thomas Parker

    There are many benefits of this ,some of as follows:
    1. It enables fast and efficient editing and easy to work upon.
    2. It conversion retains color in the AutoCAD DWG file.
    3. DWG converted files do not loose lines and arcs and they are also editable.
    4. PDF files can be marked-up with comments without affecting the original data and therefore the PDF file conversion to AutoCAD DWG is useful.
    5. PDF files enjoy flexible printing controls and therefore DWG conversion will also have that benefit

    for more benefits you can refer site
    Hope this will be helpful for you
