Whether you still use CADDS, have used it in the past, or have inherited CADDS data, DraftView is the best tool for handling this legacy information.
DraftView was introduced 20 years ago, when Computervision was still the dominant CAD vendor in the industry. With thousands of DraftView installations worldwide, the product has matured according to customer's needs.
As a complete CAD system, CADDS itself was a large program that was difficult for some users to learn. By contrast, DraftView is much easier for the casual user to learn and use. DraftView is also much less expensive than an installation of CADDS.
In many cases the solution for legacy CAD data is translation into other CAD systems. DraftView can export CADDS drawings using the popular DXF format. DXF exports can be done individually as needed, or in "batch", by the thousands. As a CADDS viewer, DraftView's distinct advantage over other translators is that you can view precisely what is being translated.
