CAD VCL 11 Released
CADSoftTools is happy to announce the release of CAD VCL 11, a new version of a library for Delphi and C++Builder developers.
Now CAD VCL, a library for creating applications working with 2D and 3D files (DWG, DXF, HPGL, PLT, CGM, STEP, IGES etc.) in Delphi and C++Builder, is compatible with the latest versions of Embarcadero®: RAD Studio XE8 and RAD Studio 10 Seattle.
The updated library includes a wide range of changes. For instance, export to AutoCAD DWG 2004 has been implemented in CAD VCL 11. 3D formats visualization as well as work with different drawing entities has been greatly improved. Besides that, the library allows retaining external entity data (EED) created in the 3rd party applications. Moreover, one of the most prominent features of this CAD VCL is support of big SHX Fonts. In other words, now it is possible to view Asian characters (Chinese, Japanese and Korean) with the library.more

The new version allows measuring distance between two points, edge length, curvilinear edge radius, height between two parallel surfaces as well as surface area of 3D objects.
Besides measuring 3D models, ABViewer 11 includes the following changes:
- Loading of custom line types
- Saving to DWG 2004
- Support of big SHX fonts (for Asian characters)
- Batch print improved greatly
- New Align tool
- New Pan tool
- Possibility of layouts duplicating
