Togliatti, Samara Russian Federation (PressExposure) April 24, 2007 -- RasterVect is a useful program for those who work with scanned drawings. With this program you can transform raster drawings into vector format. Raster drawing can be imported by scanning original paper drawings. The target vector formats (DXF, WMF, EMF, EPS and AI) are supported by most CAD applications that use vector graphics, such as AutoCAD, Corel Draw and many others.
There are viewing tools like zooming, scrolling and color selection. RasterVect has: TWAIN support for importing from any scanners; the ability to automatically recognize orthogonal and inclined lines, as well as arcs and circles; the ability to maintain the scale of the initial paper drawing. RasterVect can transform a grey and colored images in black-and-white for subsequent recognition; can change a turn of the raster image; can correct union points of lines, arcs and circles. There is also support for lines, arcs and circles alignment.
The list below summarizes the process of transformation of a paper drawing to a CAD drawing using the RasterVect:
- Create a raster file by scanning the paper drawing into RasterVect using a scanner. - Use RasterVect to convert the raster file into a vector DXF file. - Import the DXF file into your CAD program and edit the drawing. Designed to work on all Windows platforms, vectorizer RasterVect saves a lot of time. It's a replacement for traditional tracing and digitizing. It does provide a way to getting a paper drawings into your CAD program for quick and easy editing.
