ABViewer review by Al Dika, USA
I've been using ABViewer for a few months now. It's an incredible tool. I work mostly in Mechanical desktop 5.0. I have been able to export drawing views into model space, then open them in ABViewer and turn them into PDF files so I can share them with customers and suppliers.
It's simple, It's great.

We use Autocad but need another application for viewing, printing, etc. this files. Many freeware are good applications but are always some kind of compromise. ABViewer fits perfect our needs in handling these files and using ABViewer is very easy, thanks to the user interface which is similar to autocad. The user was very happy with ABViewer and cancelled testing all other competition products. We need redline, batch plot and measurements and some other functionality. It is always good to see, that the vendor offers also a floating license. This kind of application(s) is always my favourite and will be our first choice. Finally, if the vendor also offers the possibility for an upgrade to the floating license so the order is almost done.
It doesn't happen often in my daily work as system administrator, that users give me positive feedback about software. But ABViewer is one of it.

On my search on the internet for a "lean and mean" program to process some DXF drawings, which I had received from a colleague with the question "can you handle this to open and to print this drawings" I found ABViewer. I was looking for a program which wasn't that large and complex and didn't require some skills to work with it
It is quick and is clear and it corporate great with IrfanView.

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!

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!!!
