Looking at buying raster and have questions

    I am very familiar with Autocad and Carlson.  I recently switched jobs to a company that has nothing.  They have hand drawn details of precast concrete structures and want me to make them into cad dwgs.  I had an autodesk dealer show up and tell me that if I buy autocad with raster that i can take those and make a dwg without redrawing.  Is this correct?  I installed the trial and I can not find where I can do this.  I have called the guy twice and heard nothing?  Any help would be great!

take a look at the Raster help topics about Converting Raster Entities to Vector, Following Polylines, and Vectorizing Raster Text to get started...
