CAD .NET 12 released

CAD .NET 12 released

High speed of GDI+ visualization, import of AutoCAD® DWG 2018, improved support of non-Unicode SHX texts

We would like to present you CAD .NET 12, a new version of a .NET library for work with DWG, DXF and other CAD files.

The major enhancement of the new CAD .NET version is considerably increased speed of GDI+ visualization. This can be easily noticed while loading large files that have a complicated structure. For instance, visualization speed of some files containing enormous number of entities is now tenfold higher.

What is more, now CAD .NET can import AutoCAD® DWG 2018, the latest DWG version that has been recently released.

Besides, the way CAD .NET works with non-Unicode SHX texts and shapes has been significantly improved. This improvement is especially important for systems using local non-Unicode fonts, e.g. special characters in German, French, Hebrew and other languages.

  • Non-Unicode SHX texts/shapes support improved
