View & measure 2D/3D CAD files, convert (DXF, DWG, DWF) and export to PDF & images.
hsCADView is a powerful application designed to enable you to view, modify, plot, print, zoom, pan, rotate and measure 2D/3D Cad Files (DWG, DXF, DWF,DXB). Convert between various document types (DXF, DWG, DWF, and DXB) and versions (r12 - r24, AutoCAD 2000, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2010) and export to images (JPEG, BMP), and PDF files.
