CADEditorX 11 Released

Measuring 3D models in STEP, IGES, SAT and BREP files, loading custom line types, new commands and system variables as well as other prominent changes for work with CAD and 3D.

We are glad to announce the release of CADEditorX 11, a new version of the CAD ActiveX library compatible with such popular programming languages as C#, VB.NET, VC++, Delphi, HTML/JavaScript and others.

Measuring in 3D mode is one of the most prominent new features of CADEditorX 11. This feature makes the library especially convenient when you create applications for work with STEP and IGES 3D models.

AutoCAD DWG import and export have been improved. New instructions and commands for working with CAD files and setting visibility of the interface elements have been added. Moreover, the new version of CADEditorX supports big SHX fonts allowing you to view drawings containing Chinese, Japanese and Korean characters.
