CAD Import .NET

CAD Import .NET is a multipurpose software with a wide scope of use, which is necessary for developing applications in a vast range of industrial sectors, such as mechanical engineering, building, circuit technology, cartography and analytic systems, where it is necessary to work with CAD file formats such as DWG, DXF, PLT (HPGL), CGM and others.

CAD Import .NET - Import, Analyze, Save, Display Vector Graphics in Your .Net Software

Develop smart CAD-enabled applications in Microsoft Visual Studio - boost your .Net software with the ability to instantly read and process data and graphics from CAD drawings and save the result to a file, database or program for CNC machines.

Complete Documentation from a CAD Drawing

Whether your software is for viewing or analyzing CAD drawings, developing documentation, designing monitoring systems or analyzing unit construction, programming CNC machines or other routines that involve handling CAD files in DWG, DXF, PLT (HPGL), CGM and others formats, - with CAD Import .NET you can quickly link your application to the CAD drawing to be handled and import all the data your application needs from the drawing directly from the CAD file.
Equipped with CAD Import .NET, your application can access all the objects in the CAD files. It can display them, access the entities and their properties, import that data from the drawing into your .Net software or link the CAD drawing with the construction database—independently of AutoCAD or any other CAD software.

Speed and Ease

CAD Import .NET does not require AutoCAD or any of its components. CAD files, edited with CAD Import .Net, remain fully readable for other CAD applications. The library contains managed code only and displays drawings with GDI+ methods. It is by many times “lighter” than AutoCAD and takes only a couple of hours at the most to get along with it.
The library comes with a handful of application examples and a comprehensive developer’s guide.

Supported CAD formats

The library enables your .Net applications to open, view and print drawings in all popular CAD formats, including: AutoCAD DWG & DXF, PLT (HPGL) and CGM. It can handle regular image files too, including BMP, JPEG, TIFF, GIF, and other formats.

CAD Import .NET is especially great for:

  • Linking CAD documentation to database management systems.
  • Running thorough analysis of CAD drawings.
  • Development of vector-graphic document management system.
  • Development of monitoring system.

CAD Import .NET is inevitable for the development of applications for mechanical engineering, building construction, circuit technology, cartography and analytic systems.

  • Printing portions of drawings
  • Saving portions as separate files (DXF, PDF, BMP, etc)

Editing Drawings:

  • Editing of both standard CAD formats such as DWG and DXF and other vector files: PLT, HPGL, CGM.
  • Functionality for visual entities creating and editing by markers with Snap option
  • Access to the entities’ properties

Conversion Features:

  • Copying to the clipboard as BMP, EMF/WMF
  • Export drawings to raster and vector formats

File Navigation:

  • Zoom and pan.
  • 2D and 3D rotation.
  • Layers managing.

Additional features:

  • Object serialization.
  • UNICODE support.
  • Support of web-paths.
  • SHX fonts for DWG and DXF file formats.
The package consists of:
  • Executable files of demo applications, the Viewer or Import Library (Depends on the order, the Viewer library is offered by default) - CADImport.dll.
  • Documentation for demo applications and the library.
  • The source code of the demo applications.
  • AddEntityDemo – the source code of the demo application that demonstrates a process of new entities adding to the existing open DXF or DWG file; this application uses the Import library and is offered in the reduced form – executable file and the code of the Application without the library code (the Import library is needed for compiling the application).
  • ImportDemo – the source code of the application that demonstrates the access to the properties of the loaded entities; this application also requires the Import library and by default is offered in the reduced form – executable file and the code of the application without the library code (the Import library is needed for compiling the application).
  • ViewerDemo – the source code of the demo application that demonstrates all possible ways of working with the library to display, print CAD files or export them into other formats.
  • ViewerControlDemo – the source code of the application that demonstrates how to work with the CADViewerControl control.
  • AspNetDemo – the source code of the application that demonstrates how to load and draw cad files in asp .NET application (application is developed in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005)
  • EditorDemo – the source code of the editor demo application (the CAD Import .NET Professional library is needed for using the full functional of this demo application). The application demonstrates how to work with the markers and snap functions.
  • EditorControlDemo – the source code of the application that demonstrates how to work with the CADEditorControl control.
