AbleTracer

Description

Vectorizer AbleTracer allows for the transformation of any raster drawings into a vector format. There is TWAIN support for importing from scanners. Images can be acquired from any scanner. The target vector formats (DXF, WMF, EMF, EPS and AI) are supported by most CAD applications that use vector graphics, such as AutoCAD and Corel Draw. There are viewing tools like zooming, scrolling and color selection.Why do you need AbleTracer?
You will probably be able to load a raster file (like BMP, TIFF, PCX -file) into your CAD software - nowadays most CAD programs can import and display raster files. However, once you have imported a raster file into your CAD software 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 software you must first convert it to 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 software and edit it just like any other drawing you have created using your CAD program.
The list below summarizes the process of converting a paper drawing to a CAD drawing using a raster to vector converter:
1. Create a raster file by scanning the paper drawing into AbleTracer using a scanner.
2. Use AbleTracer to convert the raster file into a vector DXF file (or other vector format).
3. Import the DXF file into your CAD program.
4. Edit the drawing in your CAD program.
AbleTracer saves many hours of tedious work. It's a direct replacement for traditional tracing and digitizing. It is quicker than tracing with a digitizer.AbleTracer Features:
