As CAD systems are introduced in the filed of engineering design, the necessities for automatic drawing input are increased . In this paper, we propose a method for realizing automatic drawing input by separation of text regions and graphic regions, extraction of line vectors from graphic regions, and recognition of circular arcs and circles from line vectors. Sizes of isolated regions, on a drawing are used for separating text regions and graphic regions. Thinning and maximum allowable error method are used to extract line vectors. And geometric structures of line vectors are analyzed to recognize circular arcs and circles. By processing text regions and graphic regions separately, 30~40% of vector information can be reduced. Recognition of circular arcs and circles can increase the utilization of automatic drawing input function.
