CADRaster is a hybrid raster-vector tool for drawings and scanned maps that can be used inside of AutoCAD environment.
CADRaster provides tools for productive utilization of monochrome, gray-scale and color scanned drawings and other raster images in AutoCAD. The scanned drawings and pictures are shown on the AutoCAD screen together with vector drawings and processed using tools integrated with CAD application’s commands.
CADRaster provides tools for productive utilization of monochrome, gray-scale and color scanned drawings and other raster images in AutoCAD.
The scanned drawings and pictures are shown on the AutoCAD screen together with vector drawings and processed using tools integrated with CAD application’s commands.
Raster and vector data coexist in the AutoCAD session and are well defined in the same coordinate system, so that operations like zooming, panning and matching of raster images and vector drawings may be done easily and precisely.
CADRaster is an excellent tool to correct any defect introduced by source material or scanning process. After that, you can use scanned images as background to new designs, vectorize image contents or modify image to bring the document up to date.
Any Drawing Size
Work fast on any size of the drawing
CADRaster can easily handle scanned TIFF drawings and other formats ranging from A4 to A0+
Distorted drawings can be esily fixed
Multi-point calibration, noise removal and other tools will help to bring any drawing to life.
Measure distance and area
CADRaster will enable you to parametrize your scanned drawings and perform needed measurements
Print composite drawings
CADRaster can easily print composite (vector + raster) drawings in proper scale.
Basic functions common to LTX and PRO versions
fully integrated and transparent zooming and panning of the composite background and DWG foreground using standard AutoCAD Zoom Pan and View commands
hybrid printing of the composite background and DWG foreground drawings using the standard AutoCAD Plot command
raster editing commands for monochrome raster images
include move, crop, clear rectangle and polygon align, rotate and resize independently in X and Y directions
magnifying glass and selective snap to raster that recognizes centerline
corner, intersection, line end, edge of raster area and circular cadastral marks
