Use PDFin to open and edit PDF drawings within Autodesk® AutoCAD® and other Autodesk programs. Ideal for older versions without built-in PDF support. Trial with watermark.

General Usage Instructions

PDFin is used to open any vector PDF file as an editable drawing in most Autodesk programs released since 2002. Just select the PDF file, choose conversion options, and convert it.

The resulting file will be opened directly in AutoCAD. Vector PDF files are those created on computers using save, export, or print-to-file.

PDFin is not designed for use with scanned drawings (raster PDF) and is limited to producing an underlay or tracing layer for this type of file.
