In our screenshot you can see the original PDF (left side) and the result opened in CAD viewer (LibreCAD). The layout remains completely unchanged. You can now work with the document in your CAD application (e.g. AutoCAD) as usual.

This is of course also how it works with your own documents. Try it out without obligation using the trial version!
