In computer graphics, image tracing, raster-to-vector conversion or vectorization is the conversion of raster graphics into vector graphics. A raster is essentially a collection of pixels in a bitmap. If the raster image is magnified enough, it becomes pixelated. On the other hand, in a vector image the edges and filled areas are represented as mathematical curves or gradients, and they can be magnified to any size without pixelation. Raster to vector CAD conversion is the process of converting a raster image into a vector image. is New Jersey based CAD conversion company that provides assistance to the architectural, construction and Engineering professions. We can convert scans of your old paper drawings (“raster images”) to CAD perfect output. In fact, we are one of the leaders in raster to vector CAD conversion.

In short, we enable you to convert architectural, mechanical and various technical drawings, maps and schematic diagrams even photos and other types of line artwork from raster to different vector formats.

We can work on over 300 different image formats. For example, we can accept input formats such as IMG, JPEG, PCX, PDF, PICT, GIF, TIFF, etc.. And our team can then convert them into fully editable multilayer digital formats. For instance, we can convert scans into AutoCAD (DWG, DXF), MicroStation (DGN), Adobe Illustrator (AI), CorelDraw (CDR), VectorWorks, etc. Our most common conversion process is PDF to DWG conversion.
