CAD Viewer is a program designed for users who want to view CAD drawings without the use of complex software such as AutoCAD.
The interface looks familiar, so users should have no problems navigating. You can only open an image using the file browser, as dragging is not supported.
Standard tools include printing, scaling, panning, drawing, rotation, and selection (predefined 3D view).
For parameters, you can specify the initial view mode for DXF and DWG files (close-up of the drawing according to size, last saved) and raster (initial rotation for BMP and JPG).
In addition, you can set the initial orientation of the printer page, bitmaps in the drawing settings (always ignore) and external links on the drawings (view if not found), and enable confirmation when closing and hiding the menu in the main program window.
Administrators also have the ability to manage user permissions when it comes to printing, saving, and copying to the CLPboard and markup (whether or not they can be embedded in DXF and DWG drawings).
Other CAD Viewer options focus on search, PDF and email export, image search for viewing, text correction options (editing, moving, copying, deleting), image mode (quick drawing, anti-aliasing), layer manager, black and white filter and more.
CAD Viewer is very responsive to commands and runs on a fairly small amount of processor and RAM, so it does not burden the overall performance and does not interfere with other programs. During testing, we did not encounter any problems, because the application did not hang and did not hang. In general, CAD Viewer offers a simple alternative to viewing CAD files.
