Need to add CADDS support to your products?
DV-CADDS Reader is the most complete API available!

DV-CADDS Reader can be used to develop applications that can, among other things, view and translate CADDS data. Applications using the API do not require CADDS licenses to read CADDS.

Already Using a Different CADDS API Library?

We encourage you to give DV-CADDS Reader a try! With the exception of CV-DORSŪ (the expensive API offered by PTC that requires CADDS licenses), no other CADDS API has the level of support for Parametrics and other CADDS features that DV-CADDS offers. Period!
