Today, CAD software is used extensively in multiple industries to create accurate drawings of buildings, devices and other objects. All of these applications work with vector files in various formats, but their users quite often have to deal with regular bitmap (raster) images obtained from scanners and digital cameras. Importing them to a CAD program won’t make any sense without tracing over them, which is a long and tedious process.
RasterVect is the ultimate vector conversion tool (a.k.a vectorizer) that reduces the problem of bitmap to vector conversion to a few mouse clicks. The software supports bitmap files of all major formats (like BMP, TIFF or PCX) and transforms them into fully readable and editable files in vector formats (like DXF, WMF, EMF, EPS or AI). Once converted, the vector files can be edited and saved to the user’s hard drive. The software is perfect for users who inherited paper-based archives of drawings that need to be digitized, people who receive a lot of drawings by fax every day and pretty much anyone working with engraving and cutting CNC-enabled equipment to provide services based on simple drawings. RasterVect outputs data to files supported by the majority of popular editors, including AutoCAD, Corel Draw, Adobe Illustrator, Microstation, VectorWorks, TrueCAD and FastCAD. Finally, it’s a lot faster than traditional methods, saving users countless hours of meticulous work.
RasterVect is a remarkably efficient bitmap to vector conversion tool that will be a perfect choice for engineers, architects and other professionals working with CAD software on a regular basis.
