ABViewer. Customer reviews

Tim Kao, USA

We are in the industry where we have a few branch offices located all over the US. Only 2 branch offices out of many have the actual AutoCAD Program installed. So, 2 computers out of probably 60-70 have AutoCAD installed. That leaves a lot of people without the ability to view and print the AutoCAD files created by the other 2 branch offices.

AutoDesk used to have a free VoloView program to view and print the AutoCAD documents, but now they make something else which doesn't work half of the time. They want you to purchase what used to be free! So, we stumbled on to this program, and found that it offers so much more over the previous "free" viewers we have tried (they all have a free trial, and once the trial runs out, that's it!).

So, that's why we want to stick with this one - because we want to stick with the best!

Customer: Your ABViewer is a great alternative to professional software for drafting as there is often no need to use all their features and the most frequently and constantly used ones are available in your software.

CADSoftTools: What do you use ABViewer for?

Customer: We use ABViewer to edit drawings, in particular in combination with the measurement tools of your software; to draw the necessary sketches; to cut and copy the needed part of a drawing to other documents and applications; to effect tiled printing of large images by printing them on separate sheets of paper as tiles that can be later arranged to form a single drawing.

CADSoftTools: What file formats do you open in ABViewer?

Customer: We use ABViewer to work with DWG, DXF, CGM and other vector and raster files like TIFF and JPEG etc.

I’m one hundred percent happy with the software! It is now extremely easy to print and edit AutoCAD® files. Wall mural printing has never been more convenient! A great product, that’s the way to go!!!

Fate brought me to Iraq where I have been staying for more than one year and have been working as manager of waterpower equipment assembly of Voith and Elin companies for one of pumping stations. The equipment is unique, there is no representative of these companies onsite, all the technical documents are available only electronically and as you may understand, their formats are various, and so I have to use any available technical means. I had a licensed AutoCAD copy, but my hard disc failed because of the intolerable heat of more than +50 deg. in the shade. Now I am restoring everything little by little. And just imagine how happy I was to find your software on the Internet that helped me out a lot of times. I use a great many of features, I sometimes need to add separate notes and additional footnotes to drawings and work with separate blocks.

Im a second year architecture student from Australia and am only just beginning to use AutoCad... The past week has been an intense time for me, trying to learn how to use autocad and all its awesome capabilities, AND trying to finish these design projects on time..all has been going well until I just hit one stumbling block: PRINTING!!! no, actually, "PLOTTING" in Autocad terms..hehe.. I've been sitting here for about 3 HOURS trying to plot a huge floor plan onto "tiled pages" so that the floor plan is tiled on A3 format for my printer. WELL i tried volo express view.. and everything the manual said, i tried other autocad viewers until finally, i did a search on the internet in hope to find the best way to print onto a tiled format - onto A3 sheets... and ALONG CAME U GUYS!! i thought i was dooomed to fail if i didnt print this out, but now, maybe i wont hehe.. i am using the trial version.. i still have 30 days.. and from the second i used it: BAMMM! ABVIEWER printed my floor plan in SCALE and straight from my autocad .dwg file.. and in tiled pages onto a3 format!!! I LOVE U GUYS!! hehe.. thanks so much!! thanks so much u guys, u made me a happy person tonight and probably my school years hehe...
