Need CAD files of your original printed circuit board? If you are reproducing a PCB board or want a digital version (DXF) of the original file then let us serve you. We scan and digitalize your original artwork and convert it into 100% perfect CAD quality data (i.e. flashed pads & single line format). We pride ourselves on providing clean, production-ready CAD files at a fraction of the cost of our competitors.

Judge By the Numbers
The above examples represent half inch segments. The "Raw Scan Data" has 877 individual, 0.12 inch lines or when translated into a 5 x 7 inch board this becomes roughly 122,780 lines of data. Compare this to the "Final, Clean CAD Data" which represents only 1,540 lines of data for the same 5 x 7 inch board. Many of our competitors produce only raw scan data as final output. The bottom line is that raw scan data with increased data size is inaccurate and can slow down processing in your CAM department or board shop. It can even crash your plotter and CAD system.
