Migrate Personal Designer to DXF

Migrate Personal Designer to DXF with DraftView

With DratView for Personnal Designer you can export PD drawings to DXF format. This can be done individually, while viewing a drawing, or any number of drawings can be "batch" translated automatically. Both methods have a generous set of output options which control various aspects of DXF file creation.

A small Windows program is provided for batch DXF translating. Thousands of PD drawings can be processing in one shot. Depending on file size and complexity, DVPD2DXF can translate a DRW file into DXF in less than a minute. In most cases the translation time is a few seconds per DRW file.
