Adobe PDF, Autodesk Drawing Web Format (DWF) and Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) are all very useful and popular formats for distributing drawings on the Internet.
ViewCompanion can convert your PLT, Gerber, CGM and DWF files to Autodesk DXF format which you can read in any major CAD application.

You may measure distances and areas using ViewCompanion's precise measurement tools with snap to drawing geometry. If your drawings are not in original scale (1:1) you may calibrate the measurement tools to provide correct results.

Use ViewCompanion to annotate your files with markup elements like stamps, revision clouds, text notes, dimension lines, area measurements, barcodes, symbols, images and more. All markup elements will be stored in a separate file and the original file will not be modified. The annotations may be included when you're printing and converting your files.
