My organisation has alot of drawings that are hand drawn. An attempt was made years ago to scan these drawings in TIFF format. Is there any way to convert .TIFF / pdf CAD Drawings to a dgn microstation format?
Please review the product information for Descartes. This is our tool for converting raster data to vector data.
why not keeping the data in raster format and use raster references?
The automatic convert into vector data done with Descartes is not convincing to me.
As Jerry said, Descartes can allow you to vectorize your drawing if the drawing has only two colors (e.g. : black and white).
Check this wiki page for more information : communities.bentley.com/.../bentley-descartes-raster-vectorization.aspx
I forgot to mention that the vectorize tool can also works with raster having more than two colors if a Color Mask is used.
