CAD Export VCL 8.1
Component for DXF PLT CGM SVG SWF PDF export
CAD Export VCL is an easy-to-use high-quality multi-functional source code provided component for using in Delphi/C++ Builder IDE. It allows to add a such functionality to CAD applications as export to various file formats, including Autodesk DXF, Hewlett-Packard HPGL/PLT, CGM, PDF, SVG, SWF.
CAD Export VCL:
- provides direct export to Autodesk DXF, Hewlett-Packard PLT/HPGL, CGM, PDF, SVG and SWF file formats
- fully compatible with Delphi (from 7 up to XE2 versions) and C++ Builder
- supports Unicode
- source code provided
- royalty-free licensing
CAD Export VCL allows export by two methods: fast method - via a metafile and high precision direct method.
Export via metafile
Export via a metafile allows you to create DXF files automatically. This is a quick and convenient method for adding DXF export functionality to your application. All you need is to draw the image using Windows GDI functions onto a Windows Metafile DC and give it to the Exporter. DXF Exporter reads the Windows Metafile structure and makes the DXF automatically. For best translation, please make the metafile in 00.1 mm mode and use the XP_USE01MM flag.
Direct export is the more complicated method which allows you to get DXF, PLT/HPGL, CGM, PDF, SVG and SWF files with high precision. For your convenience we have implemented a new direct export conception: creation of TsgCADImage object, its entities and export using one of the TsgCADtoXXX classes (where XXX is output format).
