SDK for developing CAD software in Delphi and C++Builder. It enables to import, export, create, and edit drawings. CAD VCL supports 2D and 3D CAD formats including AutoCAD DWG (2.5 - 2018), DXF, DWF, HPGL, STP, IGS, STL, SLDPRT, X_T, X_B, SVG, CGM.
Version: 14.1CAD VCL is a library for creating CAD software in Delphi and C++Builder applications.
License: Free To Try $1,620.00
Operating System: Windows
With its help a developer can create new drawings, import and visualize the existing ones, edit them and export to other formats and also get access to properties of entities. CAD VCL supports a large number of 2D and 3D CAD formats including AutoCAD DWG (2.5 - 2018), DXF, HPGL, STP, IGS, STL, SLDPRT, X_T, X_B, SVG, CGM and others.
The library is provided in the Delphi source code.
The detailed help system, demonstrative scheme of main classes and prompt free customer support make CAD VCL an excellent variant for implementation.
The compilable library version is delivered with illustrative demo applications thanks to which the starting will not cause any difficulties. The demo application Getting Started contains simple code examples that can be easily copied to another application in order to use CAD VCL features.
The Viewer demo application is an example of using CAD VCL for viewing files. With its help a developer can know such library features as zooming, printing, managing layouts, etc.
To know how to add entities with the specified properties and also export a drawing to DWG / DXF format a developer can use the demo application Add Entities. The demo Editor shows how to select entities and work with their properties. The demo SimpleImport is for import purposes.
It demonstrates access to the properties of entities such as layers, blocs, attributes, etc.
The decided advantages of the library might include the high quality, reasonable price and royalty-free licenses.
Also, it is important to note that it does not require AutoCAD or other third-party applications installation.
CAD VCL is actively used in different spheres of industry and engineering including work with database systems, document management systems, CNC machines.
With the help of this library the work with files will be much easier and effective.
