Summary
  • Houston Instrument's (HI) Scan-CAD plotter accessory converts an HI DMP-50 series plotter to an optical scanner, to translate engineering drawings into digital format, for about $3K. A dedicated scanning workstation costs about $70,000 so this is a cost-effective alternative. Scan-CAD attaches to the plotter's pen holder. A cable connects it to the scanner controller card in the computer, and a gantry keeps this cable away from moving parts. The scan head detects lines to 0.007 inch on paper, vellum, or acetate film. Both scanning and postprocessing are fully automatic. Scan-CAD also works with Autodesk's CADcamera software.
