Smart Extract

The Smart Extract tool lets you extract multiple characteristics when the PDF document contains a searchable text layer that supports Smart Extract.

Smart Extract supports PDFs created from the following applications:
  • CATIA V5
  • Solid Edge
To extract characteristics, click Smart Extract (CommandManager) or right-click and click Smart Extract. You can extract a single characteristic or multiple characteristics.

This is useful for extracting GD&T without manually recognizing each element.

Using predefined settings, you can extract multiple characteristics at once. The quality of the extraction depends on the software that was used to create the 2D drawing.
