    Default PDF conversion to DXF

    I need to convert PDF into DXF files. Any suggestions for a FREE 3rd party software that does this. These are pdf text documents that I am having a heck of a time getting into my drawing. AutoCAD 2005
    Mac

    If you have text, try looking for OCR programs that scan and convert scans into text.
    Why draw straws? Just draw one straw and array it.

    If you're still in 32bit windows (which I assume you are with 2005), google for GSView, GhostScript and PStoEdit. With those 3 open source programs you can open a PDF & Edit --> Convert to Vector Format (select DXF).
