Viewing and Conversion Components

If you want to add viewing and conversion capabilities to your own application, we can provide you with components for this purpose. We do currently offer two differenet components, scViewerX and scConverter, and you will find more information about these below.
In addition to the two standard components we can on request create a customized component if you have special requirements.
Please contact us for more information.


scConverter Conversion DLL
scConverter
Conversion DLL / Component

You can use the scConverter component to add conversion to your own application or web server. This component can convert plotter files (PLT, HPGL/2, Calcomp), PDF, DWF, CGM, TIFF, CALS, JPEG, BMP and PNG to other formats including PDF, DXF, DWF, CALS, TIFF and more.


ScConverter is based on COM and can be used in almost all Windows development environments, e.g.: C++, C#, VB, Delphi, ASP, ASPX, and .NET. In addition the DLL exports functions that make it easy to use it even in environments that don't support COM (e.g.: Java).
The ScConverter SDK includes examples with full source code.
