Efficient Raster Conversion
Automatic raster-to-vector conversion is nothing new. But high speed and great accuracy are hard to come by. Thanks to the GTXRaster CAD 2021 Series, ZWCAD users can convert raster objects into rectified and accurate CAD entities, such as lines, arcs, circles, and polylines. Besides, characters associated with individual or company drafting styles can be recognized for you to edit them as true texts in ZWCAD. And since this add-on can recognize line styles, splines, cross-hatching, arrowheads, and set a gap jump variable, the conversion is guaranteed to be remarkably precise.

Quickly Enhance, Clean, and Edit Images
Either using the automatic image cleanup tools, or manually deskewing, despeckling, and cropping, you can easily clean up the scanned raster image, even when it is blurred and noisy. Also, before drawing vectors tracing over the image in ZWCAD, you can erase any part of the image, with raster erase and raster outline. Moreover, with the state-of-the-art raster and hybrid editing features available, you are free to edit and save the raster data using over 20 powerful raster manipulation commands. When you finish designing, you can continue to plot the drawing in various file formats (.tif/.pdf/.cal/.cg4, etc.), or even as hybrid files.
