LiteCAD is a 2D CAD program. The editor can be used as a multi-purpose drafting application. The main component of the package - LiteCAD DLL library is intended for software developers who build own specialized drawing applications, CAD / CAM / GIS type. This component provides vector graphics possiblilities and has a simple API for using it with the popular languages such as Visual C , C#, Visual Basic, VB.NET, Delphi. LiteCAD OCX module provides ActiveX interface for the DLL.
-Graphics objects: Point, Line, Polyline, Circle, Arc, Ellipse, Rectangle, Text (single, multiline, arc), Hatch, Dimension (rotated, aligned, angular, ordinate, radial, diametic), Leader, Block Insertion, Viewport.
-Raster images of various formats: BMP, JPG, GIF, TIF, PNG, PCX, etc., and also huge ER Mapper Compressed Wavelet (ECW) and Jpeg2000 images. With TWAIN support you can acquire images directly from scanners and digital cameras.
-Named objects: Block, Layer, Linetype, Text Style, Dimension Style, Layout.
-Supports Windows TTF fonts and AutoCAD SHP/SHX fonts.
-Supports AutoCAD hatch patterns (PAT) and linetypes (LIN).
-Edit operations: Copy, Move, Rotate, Scale, Mirror, Explode, Erase, Join, Offset. Single objects can be edited by moving their control points (grips).
-Various snap modes allows you to draw/edit objects accurately without tedious calculations. Snapping modes use ID markers to enhance operator speed and vision. Superior Polar Tracking capability. Command line interface offers exact placement of objects.
-Event-driven mechanism allows your application to control user's actions with a drawing.
-Zoom capabilities allows you to view the entire drawing or any desired part of it.
-Mouse Wheel supports real-time Zoom and Pan.
-Access to all the properties of any object, either programmatically or via dialogs. A unique identifier for each drawing object facilitates external database referencing.
-Interface commands can be assigned directly to an application's menus, buttons and accelerator keys.
-Supports AutoCAD DXF drawings format. Other vector formats can be added using the plugin interface.
Save/Read drawing to/from memory (BLOB fields).
-Print Preview. Also you can use Paper space layouts to prepare paper sheets ready for printing.
-Clipboard copy and paste.
-Undo-Redo buffer saves 100 commands.
-Multi-language interface. Easy localization to any language.
