Expo: IMSI/Design offers beta of DWG file viewer

IMSI/Design released a public beta Wednesday of its A/CAD Viewer for Mac OS X. The viewer allows users to view DWG files created by AutoDesk, AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT and other CAD applications.

A/CAD Viewer, which runs on OS X 10.4 and later, offers full control over layer visibility, line styles, and line weights as well as 2-D and 3-D navigation with pan, zoom and walkthrough controls.

Other features include a full 3-D display which is enhanced by multiple viewing styles including wireframe, hidden line, conceptual and low resolution realistic. Models can be viewed in parallel projection or perspective. A large set of standard isometric and diametric views can be used to quickly orient the drawing to necessary points of view.

Users can also tap a wide variety of measuring tools within the program including length, consecutive length, area, radius, and diameter. A properties palette allows the capture of information about any selected object and details such as line style, or line weight, hatch pattern, or color can be extracted with ease.
