I work with Autocad and was wondering if there was a technology out there where I can scan old blueprints onto the computer and then be able to edit them within the autocad program like it was originated there. It would be very helpful and save a sizable amount of money in the long run. Thanks folks.

Yes they are a lot of vectorizing rasterimage, but as you can read on your old blueprint ther is a legend on it that state.

DO NOT SIZE OR MESSURE FROM THE DRAWING.

Adesk have a OVERLAY , and others vendor too.

When I have to do this I scan the bleuprint and reading the dims i rebuild them .
Other fact is that blue print could be shortenned or enlarged ehw they wher copyed from the original.
