How to solve the problem when for CAD files you need one piece of software, for rasters you have to use a different kind of software, for non-CAD vectors you must download one more application, you receive a 3D file and start surfing the Internet again in search of a solution?
Online PR News – 13-July-2010 – – CADSoftTools (www.cadsofttools.com) states to provide software capable of managing all the abovementioned formats. The latest release of ABViewer 7.3 features the support of 3D files like IGES, STEP/STP, STL etc., besides, such formats as DWG/ DXF (including DWG 2010 and DWG 2011) that have long been supported by ABViewer can now be viewed in a special 3D mode.
High speed of CAD files management is one more important improvement featured in ABViewer 7.3. The latest version enables 10 times faster viewing of files than it did before, which certainly spares your time and nerves, and puts the software ahead of other similar programs in terms of speed.
Apart from 3D viewer functions, the software enables managing rasters, as well as viewing, editing, converting and printing CADs and other vectors like DWG, DXF, SVG, CGM, DWF, PLT, etc…
