TraceART is a professional raster to vector conversion program (Vectorizer) released by DWGTOOL Software. TraceART can let you quickly convert uneditable scanned paper drawings into accurate vector files for editing in any CAD program. It saves the converted file as an industry standard DXF file (Data Exchange Format) that can be read by any CAD program that supports this format. TraceART is a direct replacement for traditional tracing and digitizing, releases you from tiring work.
Why do you need Acme TraceART
You will probably be able to load a raster file into your CAD program – nowadays most CAD programs can import and display raster files. However, once you have imported a raster file into your CAD program you will find that all you can do is look at it or trace over it. You cannot change or edit it. This is because CAD programs can only work with vector files. If you want to edit a raster file in your CAD program you must first convert it into a vector file. You do this using raster to vector conversion software. Once you have converted the raster file to vector you will be able to import it into your CAD program and edit it just like any other drawings you have created using you CAD program.
The list below summarizes the process of vectorizing.
Create a raster file by scanning the paper drawing into TraceART using a scanner
Use TraceART to convert the raster image into a vector DXF file
Import the DXF file into your CAD program.
Then you can edit and modify it.
Who will use Acme TraceART
If you engage in engineering design and drawing design, you often need to cite some design plans which are recorded in paper, so it is necessary to transform these drawings into vector format which can be edited please try TraceART, you will find it is very useful.
Acme TraceART provides professional and fast transform functions from raster drawing into vector format it can be used in various engineering drawings including architectural, mechanical, geological, GIS, electrical drawings etc.
