Use pdf2cad to transform vector PDF files into editable DWG files. It saves hours of redraw time and reduces errors. In just seconds, you’ll extract an accurate drawing which can be easily modified in Autodesk® AutoCAD® or any other program that opens DWG or DXF files.
pdf2cad is ideal for converting CAD drawings, floor-plans, network diagrams and organization charts. It extracts editable CAD entities, layers, objects and text from any computer-generated PDF file. Images from scanned PDF files are placed on a non-editable tracing layer.
pdf2cad is available for Microsoft Windows or Apple Mac OS X.

Hello! I suspect that you are trying to convert a scanned drawing and that's why you are getting an image file. pdf2cad is designed to convert PDF drawings generated by software programs. These vector PDF files contain rich data that we can extract and render as editable DWG drawings. Scanned drawings, on the other hand, are bitmap files which contain no information about the objects, attributes or text for us to extract. The best you can expect from a scanned drawing is a tracing underlay whereas a vector PDF file will give you a fully editable drawing. Please see this FAQ for ways to identify whether your PDF file can be successfully converted or not. https://visual-integrity.com/faqs/spotting-difference-vector-raster-pdf/
