Editorial review


Margie Smeer Senior editor

CAD Viewer is a powerful application that can display CAD files like DXF and DWG drawings and also allow you to print or convert them to PDF documents and raster image files. As you can see, it’s much more than just a simple CAD file viewer.

Another remarkable advantage of this handy tool is that it supports various types of CAD drawings, from up to AutoCAD 2015 compatible ones.
The powerful CAD Viewer also supports loading raster image formats like BMP, JPEG, CAL, PNG, GIF, or even PDF documents. Enhanced Compression Wavelet (ECW) images, DWF files and ESRI shapefiles can also be viewed.

This powerful tool can also automatically rotate printed pages, supports TrueType fonts mapping, and can handle 3D shades and rendering. As you can see, it’s a comprehensive tool that offers plenty of features, functions, and options, making its rather high price seem reasonable and justified. Anyway, despite being complex and feature-rich, using it is quite easy due to the straightforward and self-explanatory interface. Even complete beginners can actually handle this utility without any problem.

To sum it all up, CAD Viewer is a nice tool that doesn’t only let you view CAD files, but also print or convert them to PDF, BMP, JPG, and other image formats. Therefore, I’d say it’s worth a try, despite the fact that the price for its full version might seem a bit high.
