A high-quality, cost-efficient multi-functional design and engineering document management app

ABViewer is a high-quality, cost-efficient multi-functional design and engineering document management application. ABViewer offers you a wide choice of professional viewing and editing tools. Support of more than 30 both raster and vector formats is provided, including AutoCAD DWG, DXF, DWF, Hewlett-Packard HPGL, PLT, HGL, CGM, SVG, IGES/IGS, STEP/STP, STL, 3DS, TIFF, BMP, JPG, GIF etc.

Key features:

* A combined viewer, editor and converter
* Support of DWG, DXF, PLT, HPGL, TIFF, SVG, CGM, IGES/IGS*, STEP/STP*, STL*, 3DS* and other industry-standard formats (* for 3D formats please install a free 3D Plugin)
* Printing of large formats (e.g. A1), on an A4 printer
* The versatility to perform all operations from design to engineering with related documentation
* An easy-to-use, fast, professional and powerful product

The most important aspects of ABViewer are quality, speed and price!

Supported formats:

* AutoCAD DWG, DXF and all versions of DWF
* Hewlett-Packard PLT Viewer: HPGL, HGL, HG, PRN, SPL
* Scalable Vector Graphics: SVG
* Computer Graphics Metafile: CGM
* 3DStudio (and many others): 3DS
* Stereolithography file format (ANSI and binary): STL
* Initial Graphics Exchange Specification: IGES1
* Standard for the Exchange of Product model data: STEP1
* PS Adobe
* Windows metafile: EMF, WMF
* All popular raster drawings supported, including TIFF, BMP, JPG, PSD, and GIF
* Full list

Managing Portions of Drawings:

* Copying portions of drawings to the clipboard in raster (BMP) and vector (EMF) formats
* Printing portions of drawings
* Saving portions as separate files (DXF, PDF, BMP, etc)

Editing Drawings:

ABViewer allows editing of both standard CAD formats such as DWG and DXF and other vector files: PLT, SVG, CGM. The application provides all the professional editor tools and enables operations supported by ‘heavy editors’, which are usually used for design work.

Conversion Features:

* Copying to the clipboard as BMP, EMF/WMF
* Exporting drawings to raster formats BMP, JPEG, GIF, TIFF with the possibility of additional settings
* Saving vector data when exporting to the vector files: PDF, DXF, PLT, SVG, CGM, SWF, WMF, EMF
* ! Important: Clip Rectangle allows conversion of a selected part of the drawing

Batch Conversion and Batch Print

It is now much faster and easier to print or convert a large number of files into another format. ABViewer supports simultaneous conversion and print in batch mode – with the same settings for all files.

Quick Load and Scaling Big Black-and-White Raster Files:

In ABViewer we have applied our know-how concerning 1-bit (Black-and-white) raster formats management. Huge 15-20 thousand pixel files can be loaded in less than one second. They are immediately scaled – a feature that is very convenient with TIFF scanned drawings.

Measurement Tools:

* Quick and easy setting of scale factor for measurements – no additional computations needed!
* Changing of lengths, areas and perimeters

CAD File Management

* You can hide all the texts and sizes just by one mouse click
* Convenient switching between files
* A large number of settings for snapping to objects, used for both editing and measurement purposes
* Measuring distances on a drawing (including the scale factor setting)
* 3D viewing and editing
* Viewing with six orthogonal projections and four isometric views
* Automatic rotation of the loaded CAD file by a given angle
* Managing layers
* Color and black-and-white modes for CAD files
* Choosing a background color
* DWG/DXF/SVG/CGM arcs and circles can be drawn as smooth curves and saved as metafile arcs, and ellipses as EMF, which allows scaling without loss in quality
* Setting the quantity of line segments when drawing circles, arcs, ellipses and splines
* Merging drawings into one file
* The possibility of viewing a CAD files structure
* Supporting SHX-fonts, including UNICODE and BIGFONTS.

File Search

Favorites and Explorer panels give the possibility of fast file navigation. Thumbnails sub-program allows viewing of all files in a catalogue before they are opened, including DXF, PLT and other files not managed by Windows or ordinary viewers. Due to the up-to-date tab-based document structure, you can navigate between files quickly and easily.

File Navigation

Dynamic scaling of the drawing with the help of the mouse-wheel, like in AutoCAD. ‘Find text’ and ‘Find point’ lead to the necessary part of the drawing quickly. If only the contour of a detail is required in the drawing, it is possible to hide all the texts and sizes by one mouse-click; it is not necessary to open layers and change their visibility.


The Redline mode or commentaries to the drawing provide additional information that is ‘applied over’ the drawing but does not change the basic file. All editing elements are at your disposal in this mode. Commentaries and remarks, together with the basic file, can be printed or converted to another format. A drawing can be supplied with many commentaries of this kind. In addition, the path to the redline files containing the remarks can be saved, which allows to load the files automatically when the drawing is opened next time.


* The print feature provides the user with a vast range of capabilities. Both a single file and a set of files can be printed with predefined settings. The ‘Print preview’ dialog box contains a large number of settings, for example DWG/DXF line width, color and layers, and nil width value. Printing ‘in tiles’ allows printing images on any number of sheets of any size with the necessary scale. For example, large images (A0, A1 etc) can be divided into many small pages of a different size for subsequent pasting together into one big drawing. Any ‘tile’ can be printed separately. Therefore, if one page seems defective (e.g., because of problems with the printer), it is possible to re-print this page separately. As an alternative to printing the whole file, it is possible to print a selected area (with the help of ‘Clip Rectangle’ that selects the required part) and print the view area. Color drawings can be printed with a black-and-white printer in high quality and without gray halftones. There is a number of frames that can be inserted onto the printed page.

* Preset sizes for standard formats (ISO-A; DIN: A4, A3, A2, A1, A0; US: A, B, C, D, E).
