Need to view, print or export legacy CADDS 4X or CADDS 5 designs?
DraftView for CADDS is the convenient and low-cost way to manage CADDS data.

DraftView reads your CADDS data directly, without requiring a CADDS license. CADDS designs are displayed completely, as they appeared in CADDS, with all 3D, 2D and Parametric entities.

In many cases the solution for legacy CAD data is translation into other CAD systems. DraftView can export CADDS drawings using the popular DXF format. With a proven DXF translator, DraftView uses the latest technology to create superior CADDS to DXF translations. DXF exports can be done individually as needed, or in "batch" by the thousands. As a CADDS viewer, DraftView's distinct advantage over other translators is that you can view precisely what is being translated.

DraftView has an intuitive, easy-to-use interface. It can be installed and licensed on individual PCs, or "floated" from a network server.

With DraftView, accessing CADDS designs has never been easier or less expensive!
