VectorDraw Developer Framework (VDF) by VectorDraw
Add dynamic 2D/3D graphics to your application. VectorDraw Developer Framework (VDF) is a component to easily create and manage and print 2D and 3D drawings. VectorDraw objects expose methods and properties that are compatible with most common vector formats and other CAD objects. It supports over 10 vector formats and many raster formats. VectorDraw Developer Framework (VDF) is fully object oriented, the component is written in .NET C# code. Vectordraw Developer Framework (VDF) version 6 engine is written from scratch, all geometric algorithms were re-written. An ActiveX component is also supplied. This ActiveX provides backward compatibility for older development platforms like VisualBasic 6.0 (VB 6) and Delphi. VectorDraw Developer for Compact Framework (CE Libraries) also included.
VectorDraw Developer Framework (VDF) is a graphics engine-library that can be used from developers in order to visualize their applications. With the functionality provided, our customers can easily create, edit, manage, export, import and print 2D and 3D drawings - graphic files. A format used by VDF named VDML (and VDCL same as VDML but compressed) XML based that supports custom objects and is not depended from the component's version. The library also supports import-export of several vector and raster formats including native SVG export. Vectordraw Developer Framework (VDF) version 6 engine is written from scratch, all geometric algorithms were re-written. VectorDraw Developer for Compact Framework (CE Libraries) also included.
