    Default PDF to DWG batch

    I have a directory with hundreds of TIF and PDF files - all need some AutoCad work done and it would take very long to create a dwg for each of them manually.

    I have found a lisp routine to attach all .tif files from a folder, but I'm not sure how to make it work for pdfs.

    (defun c:MakeDrawingsFromImages (/ FullPath DirPath ImList dbxApp oVer dbxMs dbxDictCol dbxIm dbxImDict *error*)
    (defun *error* (msg) (vl-bt))
    (setq FullPath (getfiled "Select image file in directory to use." "" "tif" 4))
    (setq DirPath (vl-filename-directory FullPath))
    (setq ImList (vl-directory-files DirPath "*.tif" 1))
    (setq dbxApp
    (if (< (atoi (setq oVer (substr (getvar "acadver") 1 2))) 16)
    (vla-GetInterfaceObject (vlax-get-acad-object) "ObjectDBX.AxDbDocument")
    (vla-GetInterfaceObject (vlax-get-acad-object) (strcat "ObjectDBX.AxDbDocument." oVer))
    (setq dbxMs (vla-get-ModelSpace dbxApp))
    (setq dbxDictCol (vla-get-Dictionaries dbxApp))
    (foreach name ImList
    (setq dbxIm (vlax-invoke dbxMs 'AddRaster (strcat DirPath "\\" name) '(0.0 0.0 0.0) 1.0 0.0))
    (vla-put-Name dbxIm (vl-filename-base name))
    (vla-put-ScaleFactor dbxIm 1.0)
    (vla-SaveAs dbxApp (strcat DirPath "\\" (vl-filename-base name) ".dwg"))
    (setq dbxImDict (vla-Item dbxDictCol "ACAD_IMAGE_DICT"))
    (vla-Delete dbxIm)
    (vla-Delete (vla-Item dbxImDict 0))
    (vla-Delete dbxImDict)
    '(lambda (x)
    (vl-catch-all-apply 'vlax-release-object x)
    '(dbxImDict dbxIm dbxDictCol dbxMs dbxApp)
