About CAD DLL

Add CAD functionality to applications in different languages that support DLL technology.

CAD DLL integrates CAD functionality to applications based on VC++, C#, Delphi, C++Builder, Visual Basic and VB.NET without the need for AutoCAD. It enables viewing, importing and converting CAD files, including AutoCAD DWG/DXF, DWF, HPGL/HGL, PLT, CGM, SVG and many others. CAD DLL can be used in a vast range of industrial sectors including mechanical engineering, building, circuit technology, cartography, analytic systems, and many other spheres that involve working with CAD.

CAD DLL is a multifunctional library for viewing, importing and converting different CAD files, including DWG/DXF, DWF, HPGL/ HGL, PLT, CGM, SVG, TIFF, BMP, JPG, GIF and others. The library is especially convenient for integrating CAD into applications developed in VC++, C#, Delphi, ASP .NET, C++Builder, Visual Basic and VB.NET. CAD DLL doesn't require AutoCAD or any other third party software.

CAD DLL is available in 32- and 64-bit versions on the Windows platform and includes examples of applications in Visual C++; C#; Delphi, ASP .NET and other programming languages. CAD DLL library demonstrates the use of such functions as importing, viewing and exporting drawings.

The import feature allows you to get access to the entity properties: coordinates, layers, blocks, attributes, etc. Using the export feature you can save the drawing in a vector or raster format. Convert a drawing into vector formats like AutoCAD DWG/DXF (including DWG 2004), PDF, SVG, CGM, HPGL, EMF, WMF. it is also possible to transform the drawing into BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG and other raster formats.

Automatic export to AutoCAD DWG/DXF and other CAD formats through the Windows Metafile technology allows saving everything your application plots or prints to CAD by writing just a short code script. Besides that, CAD DLL supports Unicode and SHX fonts, including big fonts and Asian symbols.

You can rotate a drawing by xy-coordinate axes, manage layers, select the background color and the drawing scale as well as change the line color and the line weight.
