About CADViewer

CADViewer is designed for companies who need to conduct online product, document, project and process management activities over the Internet.

The GUI is configurable so you, by using our customizable API, can set up the functionality the way you want to within minutes.

No Plug-in Software is required as the browser client software components are Java Script based. All the user simply has to do is to click the file and goes can go to work. Additionally, since it is converted to DWF on your server, your propriety drawing file is not at risk at being copied.

CADViewer is VERY fast, converting most files in seconds. Since the resulting file is parsed faster than the original, you can convert and send the file in less time than loading the original. Of course, the Viewer can display the results very quickly.

CADViewer does not have the download overhead associated with other Web viewing solutions. Since we use standard Java 1.6, you do not have to install anything besides the standard Java install.

Wide Browser Support

All Script enabled Web client will work with CADViewer, including IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera on both desktop and mobile platforms.

Server side conversion

CADViewer uses our advanced server-based conversion process that makes it easy to create output files on-the-fly! CADViewer handles all file interaction on the client. Unlike some of our competitors that have to repeatedly return to the server for each transaction, everything is done where it is cheapest and quickest on your desktop machine. This frees your valuable servers for real work.

Standards Based

Unlike our competitors who force you to use their proprietary format, we use SVG, a de-facto standard for viewing CAD files on the Web. SVG is developed by W3C and is together with PDF the two de facto standards for CAD document viewing. Use CadViewer and SVG and enjoy the benefits of Java Script, standards-based viewing, or use the format of your choice.

Collaboration Communication Module

Now you can hold online meetings to discuss your engineering drawings in real-time by integrating the Collaborative Communication Module into CADViewer.
