DGN stands for "design" and represents an extension typically used for CAD (Computer Aided Design) files created with Bentley Systems' MicroStation or with IGDS (Intergraph's Interactive Graphics Design System) — two popular programs used by architects, engineers, constructors and designers. DGN files can include sizeable building projects with a rich amount of details, usually have a very large size and can be viewed with a limited number of CAD programs.
PDF (Portable Document Format) is one of the most popular formats used for storing document files which include both text and graphics. As opposed to other formats with a similar function, PDFs can be easily transferred between different applications and different operating systems, and generally don't have a very large size. Moreover, they can offer decent image quality in a compressed format and can be secured with passwords or watermarks.
The quick and simple way to handle your files is to get a quality piece of software, such as reaConverter. Although it is fast, this software is extremely efficient in managing a wide range of conversions. As you will soon realize, reaConverter will help you avoid spending countless hours trying to figure out how to convert DGNs. But at the same time, it will allow you to apply a wide range of editing options.
reaConverter is quick to download, install and launch, and you don't need to be an IT specialist in order to understand in a few minutes how it operates.
Start reaConverter and load all the .dgn files you intend to convert into .pdf because, as opposed to most free online converters, reaConverter supports batch conversion. So you can save the time and energy you would lose with doing repetitive operations.
Select DGNs from a folder or by drag-and-dropping them directly into the reaConverter window.
Go to the Saving options tab and decide where you want to save new .pdf files. You can also spend a few more moments to apply additional editing to the images prepared for conversion.
Then pick the PDF as output format. To help you do this, a series of buttons is conveniently placed at the bottom of the reaConverter window, so you can simply press on the one you need or click Plus button to add new options.
Then simply press the Start button and your conversion will begin in no time!Try Free Trial Version
