Rastertovector.biz converts your JPG image files to MicroStation’s (DGN) format. Our manual DGN conversions are fully editable, multi-layered and are 100% dimensionally accurate. We follow AIA leveling standards and can also accommodate your leveling standards. The final output is editable and will be in DGN format because we create the drawing as a new file. We can create as many levels as you require. We generate separate levels for dimensions, text, body, hidden lines, and center-lines, etc. Text is separated and has its own level and is recognizable as text. Dimensions remain intact and appear in a separate level.

JPG (also known as JPEG, or Joint Photographic Experts Group format) is a file format for mainly storing images, including photographs and line art. JPG is a popular format for high color depth images. It is because of its easy view-ability that JPG files are one of the most used forms. But a JPG file is not easily editable and cannot be used for a lot of purposes in its original form. Solution: we can convert your JPG files to DGN files and enhance them without any loss of information.

DGN conversions are vectorized drawings that are scalable and do not become blurry when expanded. You can expand DGN files to any size and can edit them.

Old paper drawings tend to lose clarity and original dimensions, but if you scan them in JPG format and convert them using auto-vectorization software you can preserve them indefinitely. Our experts can digitize your drawings according to the dimensions mentioned on the drawing, giving you error-free and dimensionally accurate DGN files.

Our Unique Selling Proposition: Quality

As you may have already discovered, there are dozens of software companies that provide software to convert JPG files automatically into DWG. Many people call this process “auto-vectorization”. Unfortunately, the quality of software-generated output is not acceptable to most architects, engineers or designers. That’s where RasterToVector.biz comes in. When you need a quality solution, online conversion tools are just not good enough.

In terms of quality, we know we’re the best, and we’ll prove it to you. How? By offering you a free trial of our service. Compare our quality against that of any of our competitors. We are so confident in the quality of our work that we challenge you to find a better service provider. If you can find a company whose quality is better than ours, we’ll pay you $50. So far, we have never lost this challenge.


After your free trial, you may be wondering about the cost of our services. Given the fact that the quality of our CAD conversion services is unbeatable, you will find that our costs are comparable to other service providers, and we will match the cost of any other company that provides manual CAD conversion services.

US Presence

Unlike many of our competitors, we are based in the USA (Princeton, NJ), and our shareholders are all US-based. Unlike many of our competitors, you will never have to deal with late night conference calls, linguistic barriers or cultural misunderstandings.


What about confidentiality? As a division of an American company (Design Presentation Associates) we must maintain the security of our client’s digital content — it’s the law and the penalties are steep.

We’ve been the leader in JPG to DWG conversion for the past 15 years. Over this time, we’ve converted more close to a million drawings. Happily, we’ve never failed to maintain confidentiality.

The largest companies in the world trust us with their data, and we can provide references. We would be happy to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with you.

Still concerned? Another option is for you to hide key information (e.g. the title block) before sending us the file. You can add back the confidential information after you receive the converted DWG file.
