Convert Your Paper Drawings to CAD Automatically!
VB-View is the graphical link to the documents stored in VisualBASE. VB-View supports a wide variety of formats, ranging from AutoCAD DWG, Microstation DGN, CALS compatible scanned drawings to popular raster image formats like TIFF, GIF, TGA and industry standard office formats like Microsoft Word and Excel, WordPerfect, and Lotus. Also viewable are transfer formats like DXF, plot files like HPGL HPGL2, Calcomp, Postscript, and many other emerging standards.
VB-View offers fast and easy zoom and pan features using a bird’s eye, and allows you to manipulate and compare files with File Overlay and File Compare functions. An easy-to-use network tool governs access control through user profiles, building levels of security for your network. In addition to all of these features, VB-View allows you to create multi-layer redlining and commenting without altering the original files. This means that different users working on the same drawings can communicate change requests, revision notes, and reference comments, all with a comprehensive toolbox. With document hyperlinking, a completely separate document can be embedded to become a permanently linked record — keep track of and jump to drawing revisions or component drawings easily!
VB-Edit is an advanced interactive raster/vector editor and raster-to-vector conversion module. VB-Edit provides CAD functionality on raster images. Among the advanced functions are calibration, warping, cropping, de-skewing, erasing and filtering functions such as de-speckling, hole-filling, thickening, thinning, etc., on the whole image or selected area (regular or irregular). VB-Edit includes an object recognition engine that automatically recognizes selected lines, arcs, circles and hatch patterns. The raster tracing tool provides line following for semi-automatic raster to vector conversion. VB-Edit offers rubbersheeting, search-and-replace of raster objects, automatic vector correction, save and load vectors, and more.
Using the editing tools you can modify or draw lines, arcs, circles, polypoints, polylines, texts, shapes, blocks, line styles (dashed, dot-dashed, etc.) and arrowheads. Text can be added and rotated to any angle using a wide range of fonts. The block-editing function can be used to cut-and-paste irregular shapes to and from the multi-page clipbook, which can be saved and recalled from disc. The VB-Edit module can import scaled vector files in DXF, DXB or VCT format into the drawing and rasterize them – ideal for updating objects, drawing frames and title blocks.
VB-Convert is a vector recognition software program that automatically converts scanned raster images – drawings, drafts, charts, etc. – into vector images. VB-Convert enables you to work with old paper drawings in programs such as AutoCAD, Microstation, CADdy, 3D Studio, Corel Draw, and others which support the DXF (vector) file format. VB-Convert allows you to “translate” old paper drawings and maps that have been scanned into your computer as raster images, into vector data that can easily be loaded into CAD, desktop publishing and multimedia systems.
