Default CAD questions?

CoosBayLumber (or anyone else) -

Do you know of any raster to DXF or DWG (Autocad) conversion software that's freeware or shareware ?

(I can scan and I have plenty of plans that I would like to place in Cad but it's a lot of work. A raster to DXF or whatever would save a lot of work.)

I have used scan vector its not too bad and i cant remember the other one. as for saving time well from the conversions I have done I spent more time cleaning up the conversions than if i just imported the scan and traced it myself in the cad progream. Also Corel Draw has a trace feature built into it. Email Me I may have a copy of scan vector laying around still. my email addy is a couple posts up.

There are a host of the free ones out the on the web. www.cadalog and www.cnet has several. These however are demo or freeware.
