Features Of ABViewer Enterprise :
ABViewer Enterprise is a versatile and cost-effective application for viewing 2D drawings, raster formats and 3D models. It is a full-featured CAD-platform for editing DWG files and other formats. The main features of the program include:
A single tool for viewing, editing and converting files:
• Support for DWG, DXF, PLT, TIFF, SVG, CGM, IGES / IGS *, STEP / STP *, STL *, 3DS and other industry formats (-For viewing 3D-files you need to install a free add-on)
• Printing large formats, for example A1, on an A4 printer
• UNIVERSALITY, allowing you to do all the necessary operations in the work with the design and project documentation
• The lightness, speed and power of a professional product

Working with the fragments of the drawing:
The ability to copy parts of the drawing to the clipboard in both raster (BMP) and vector (EMF) format.
The selected area can be printed separately from the rest of the drawing.
The selected area can be saved in a separate file (DXF, PDF, BMP and other formats).
ABViewer allows you to edit not only standard CAD formats, such as DWG and DXF, but also vector files: PLT, SVG, CGM. The program contains all the tools of a professional editor, which makes it possible to work in ABViewer as well as in “heavy” editors, for example AutoCAD ™ or “Compass”.
Features of converting:
Copy to clipboard data in BMP, EMF / WMF format.
Export drawings to raster formats BMP, JPEG, GIF, TIFF with convenient settings.
Saving vector data when exporting to PDF, DXF, PLT, SVG, CGM, SWF, WMF, EMF formats.
!! Important: when using the Truncate Rectangle tool, the conversion will be performed only for the corresponding part of the drawing.
Batch convert and print
If you have a lot of files that need to be translated into another format or printed, then do not necessarily spend a lot of time on it. ABViewer has the ability to simultaneously convert and print in “batch” mode – using the same settings for all files.
Fast loading and scaling of large black and white raster files:
ABViewer uses the know-how to work with 1-bit (black and white) raster formats. Huge files measuring 20 by 15 thousand pixels are loaded in less than a second and almost instantly scaled, which is very convenient when working with scanned drawings in TIFF format.
Tools for dimensioning:
The ability to quickly visualize the scale factor for taking measurements – there are no additional calculations on the calculator!
Change in lengths, squares and perimeters.
Working with CAD files
Hide all sizes or texts with one click
Convenient switching between files
Snap to objects has a large number of settings and is effective not only when editing drawings, but also when using “rulers”
Measurement of distances in the drawing, including adjustment of the scale factor.
Viewing and editing in 3D mode
Viewing in six orthogonal projections and four isometric views.
Automatic rotation of the downloaded CAD file to the specified angle.
Working with layers
Color and black and white modes for CAD files
Adjust background color
DWG / DXF / SVG / CGM Arcs and Circles can be rendered as smooth curves and saved in the EMF as Arcs and Ellipses of Metafiles, which makes it possible to scale them without loss of quality
Adjust the number of linear segments when drawing a circle, arc, ellipse, and spline
Merge drawings into one file.
Ability to view the structure of CAD files.
Support for SHX-fonts, including UNICODE and BIGFONTS.
Search for files
The Bookmarks and Explorer pane provides fast file navigation. The “Sketches” subroutine allows you to browse all the files in the directory before opening them, including viewing DXF, PLT and other files not shown by Windows or by normal viewers. Moving through ABViewer’s open files can be done very quickly thanks to the modern organization of documents in the tabs.
Navigating the file
Dynamic scaling of the drawing with the mouse wheel, similar to AutoCAD ™ The text and point search functions will quickly move you to the right part of the drawing. If you only need a part outline in the drawing, then you can remove all texts or dimensions by pressing a single key – now for this operation you do not need to open layers and change visibility.
The “Redline” mode or comments to the drawing is additional information that is superimposed on the drawing image, but does not affect the base file. In this mode, you can use all the elements of the editor. Comments along with the base file can be printed or converted to another format. Multiple comment files can be attached to one base file. Additional features of this mode allow you to choose the save path to the markup files and ensure their automatic downloading.
The print function has very great possibilities. You can print a single file or a group of files with the specified settings. In the “Preview” dialog box there are a lot of settings, for example, adjust the width of the lines color and DWG / DXF layers, determine the values of the zero width. Printing “Mosaic” allows you to output images to any number of pages of various formats with the required scale, for example very large images (A0, A1, etc.) can be divided into many smaller pages of different formats for subsequent gluing into a single web. Any element of the “mosaic” can be printed independently of the others. Thus, if one page is damaged (for example, due to problems with the printer), you can reprint this page separately. In addition to printing the entire file, it is possible to print the selected area (the “Crop rectangle” tool allows you to select the required area for printing) and printing of the visible space. Color drawings can be printed with good quality on a black and white printer (without gray halftone). There is a set of frames for insertion when printing.
Predefined sizes for standard formats (ISO-A; DIN: A4, A3, A2, A1, A0; US: A, B, C, D, E).
