Title: RE: Office size Scanner

Ed,
The way I used to do was to scan it as a WMF file or any graphic format, then use any graphic program  which has the ability to convert raster image into dxf format. One of the programs that I used to was HiJaak Pro, very inexpensive program and you can purchase in any online computer store. If you need it real quick, some of the stores probably allows you to download over the net.

You still need to modify the line works (sometimes a lot) and scale it to the true dimension, however, you do save lots of time.

Good luck

Larry Lao

Does any one know if there is a scanner in the market that can scan lines and
words into .DXF or .WMF formats?  I want to scan a drawing to import into
AUTOCAD.
Thanks for your response.
