PlotVision Products allow anyone in your company to print, view, review and mark up drawings created in any CAD program, without having any CAD knowledge or having CAD software installed on their PC. top

PlotVision reads drawings as HPGL or HPGL/2 files or as DXF, CGM, CGM+ or Calcomp 907. All CAD programs can create HPGL or HPGL/2. HPGL and HPGL/2 provide an accurate portrayal of your drawing, including colours, line weights, line types, fonts etc. This means that data and information created in any CAD program can be exchanged, printed, controlled, integrated into production descriptions and marked up with redlines and instructions without modifying the drawing itself. The redlines can be saved separately for exchange or emailing. top
