First of all, ABViewer is a universal software. It supports more than 60 popular formats including AutoCAD DWG, DXF, HPGL, IGES, STEP, PDF, SVG, CGM. You no longer need to worry how to open a file sent by your customer or colleague.
With the help of ABViewer editing of PDF drawings will not cause any difficulties. The software enables to convert PDF files to DWG format following which you can start to edit.
ABViewer has all necessary tools to create and edit DWG, DXF, PLT, SVG, CGM files. It also provides a special Redline mode to add marks and comments without affecting the original file.
ABViewer's measuring tools are available while viewing both 2D drawings and 3D models. If elements of a drawing are made in different scales, a special feature of fast scaling will release you from calculations by hand.
Depending on the objective, ABViewer offers different printing methods. For example, it is possible to print:
ABViewer has a user-friendly interface that is completely in English. This lets even an inexperienced user handle successfully with the software.
Our company pays great attention to client support. We do not resort to standard phrases and do not suggest that you look for answers at FAQ page or on the forum. Have a question?

Buying ABViewer is also a good idea from a financial viewpoint. You purchase one software, but get functionality of several ones at a very attractive price.
DWG, DXF, DWF, HPGL, IGES, STEP, PDF and other vector and raster formats, archives.
Easy-to-use settings for saving to PDF, DWG, DXF, BMP, PLT and others. ABViewer allows converting single files or a group of files. Batch conversion provides a wide range of export settings, for example, black-and-white mode, specifying the output file size, etc.
Work with layers, blocks, dimension and text styles, snap, etc. ABViewer allows editing not only standard CAD formats like DWG and DXF but also vector files: PLT, SVG, CGM, etc. The application is a full-functional CAD platform that allows managing layers, blocks, dimension and text styles, adding other files to the drawing as external links and other standard operations.
Create section views of 3D models to see their internal structure. The 3D section panel has controls for setting up visual display of 3D models and section planes. The panel is available in the 3D Viewer mode. The commands and options of the 3D Section panel enable to customize 3D model viewing.
Measure distance, height between faces, surface area and curvilinear edge radius. ABViewer allows you not only to view 3D files and convert them to other file formats but also enables you to get information on 3D model parts, measure volume, distance and dimensions of the model parts.
Intuitive measuring of segments, areas, perimeters and angles. ABViewer allows measuring the distance between two points, area and perimeter with a possibility of fast intuitive settings of the scale factor for measurements. The calculator isn’t needed any more! Just make several clicks and the results will be displayed on the screen. If needed, you can copy them to a document or continue measuring and return to them later.
Opportunity to print out all drawing layouts or an A1 layout on an A4 printer . File printing is an essential task for those who work with drawings. ABViewer has two different printing tools: Print preview using the settings from the plot settings and Multipage Printing printing settings of which are based in the overall dimensions of the drawing. The required tool is selected depending on the file format (*.pdf, *.dwg, *.bmp etc.) and the way the file is prepared for printing.
Convert PDF files into editable AutoCAD DWG entities. The PDF file format is one of the most popular exchange formats especially when you prepare files for printing. But it is quite difficult to edit these files. ABViewer allows converting PDF to vector DWG or DXF file formats for its further editing.
Generate G-code from DWG/DXF files for CNC machines. ABViewer has an easy-to-use G-code generator with all the needed settings. It enables to generate G-code from DWG and DXF files to control different types of CNC machines.
Save several files to the selected format with specified parameters. If you have a great number of files that need to be converted to another format, you don’t have to spend a lot of time on the task. Along with batch print, ABViewer has a tool for batch conversion. The command Batch conversion is available on the Output and File tabs. The user can add any files of supported formats to the list of files. The corresponding group of settings will be available according to the selected export format. The specified settings and the file list can be saved for the further work.
Add commentaries and markups to the file. To add commentaries and notes to the loaded drawing, you can use the special mode Redline. In this mode, the main drawing isn’t edited; all the notes overlay the file.
Compare the contents of DWG and DXF files to trace changes. How can one quickly find the changes applied to a drawing? ABViewer has an integrated feature for a fast comparison of different file revisions and search for differences between them. The results of the comparison are displayed graphically where the found changes are marked with a contrast color. It is possible to compare DXF and DWG files.
Visual search for files. It is sometimes very difficult to find the needed drawings among thousands of files with similar names. The subprogram ‘Thumbnails’ makes the search easier by displaying drawings as thumbnails in a separate window. By looking at a small image of the contents of the file, it is easy to find the necessary drawing.

" Autofact works a lot with point-cloud processing. We are using ABViewer for converting LWpolylines generated with one of our programs to true LWpolylines for ACAD.
Our program can change 3D Polylines to naked LWpolylines, where related parameters still not complete. ABViewer can accept our LWpolylines and can output exact LWpolylines which can be accepted by AutoCAD and related programs. The user can generate beam entities by using LOFT(ACAD command).
We appreciate the program functions very much. " -
CEO, Autofact Inc. Japan
" In our company we use ABViewer for things that helps us speed our business. Batch printing and converting has become critical feature in daily job. And with the latest new feature „Measuring 3D Models“ we can replace third party CAD applications and save money. Excellent product, highly recommended for users that don't need highly priced CAD applications " -
" The program ABViewer 12 I use to open 3D-STEP since our Engineering Department uses Solid Works. Since I don’t need to design myself I only need an easy to use viewer tool like ABViewer to inspect the 3D parts which I use for building manuals. The measurement tool is handy to check important dimensions that I need to use in my manuals. The 2D editor section of ABViewer allows me to quickly sketch something up in 2D mode with a professional outlook. So, I would recommend ABViewer for who is searching for a quick and handy tool to sketch 2D drawings and view 3D files. " -

" We use the program called ABViewer to convert CAD data so that we could process and edit it in CorelDraw. The program is very versatile and we can use the PDF data well. When we used its trial version we had two small issues concerning its maintenance but the support department solved them in no time and in a very friendly manner. The program has an excellent price-performance ratio and is easy to use even for people who don't create CAD projects usually. " -
Hartmut Schmitz, TechnoGrav, Germany
" We tried ABViewer professional version 12 and it works like a charm. The floating license option is a must-have for all companies with citrix or RDS clients. I like the fact that you can edit your drawings as well. This way you can make an adjustment and send it back to effectuate the change without a lot of explaining. The software is fast and smooth even with bigger 3D drawings. What's just as important as good working software is good working support. And CadSofttools has just that. They are quick to reply to your emails and know their product. " -
Jack van Deur, Netherlands
" Great programs BTW. I get a lot of mileage from the Total Commander plug-in I am considering getting the IrfanView plugin also. I debated back and forth for about a year deciding why this ABViewer and CADView Plugin for TC were enough of an upgrade to justify paying, rather than using a free viewer, as you know there are several. I finally took the plunge, and I am glad I did there are many features I didn't consider essential until I tried them on ABViewer now I can't do without. " -
" We are very pleased with this software. Everything works perfect and we haven’t had any problems. " -
