2D Editor


CADE Pro is:

  • Powerful vector graphic editor
  • AutoCAD DXF/DWG viewer and editor
  • Microstation DGN viewer and editor
  • Geo viewer and editor with ESRI and raster formats support
  • Converter from DWG to DGN, DGN to DWG, DXF to DGN, DGN to DXF, DXF to ESRI, ESRI to DXF and others
  • Export to PDF, EMF, JPG, XAML
  • Software development components

CADE Pro is not just a converter. It is a compact but powerful vector editor which could be used to convert existing drawings and create new drawings from scratch. You can think of it as a lightweight AutoCAD or Microstation in a single application.

CADE Pro Overview

The key difference from other converters is ability to preview and modify intermidiate data. CADE Pro is a compact but powerful 2D vector editor with similar to Visio functionality. CADE Pro could be used to create diagrams, network diagrams, flowcharts, schemas, maps and so much more. You can use predefined blocks, primitive shapes, raster and vector images. The collection of blocks and it's attributes could be modified and extended. Working in CADE requires no particular drawing skills.

On top of that CADE Pro utilizes the most popular CAD formats such as DXF, DWG; Microstation DGN; popular geospatial vector format ESRI shapefile; internal DTC format; popular JPG, WMF, PDF formats. Any combination of the supported formats could be paired.

CADE Pro can also export drawings in XAML format. With Microsoft Silverlight plug-in installed vector graphic in XAML format could be displayed on web. Please explorer XAML samples created with CADE Pro.

DXF to DGN and DGN to DXF conversion

CADE Pro supports the following DXF and DWG flavours:

  • DXF R12/LT2, DXF R13/LT95, DXF R14/LT98/LT97, DXF 2000, DXF 2004, DXF 2007
  • DWG R13/LT95, DWG R14/LT98/LT97, DWG 2000, DWG 2004, DWG 2007

CADE Pro supports all basic AutoCAD and Microstation entities such as

  • Primitive shapes
  • Blocks / cells (including parameterized blocks)
  • Layers / levels
  • Colors
  • Line type / weight
  • Hatch type / scale

Exported information could be filtered. It is possible to show / hide layers and export just visible layers.

Command line parameters

CADE Pro supports command line options to open, export to the specified format or print files.

With "File \ Batch Import/Export" feature a number of files could be converted in the single shot. The same goal could be achieved with the command line options.

Working with geo data

CADE Pro can import multiple geo data files and place them accordingly into a single document.

For each file CADE Pro assigns a separate layer. With CADE Pro users can modify layers z-order, visibility and other properties.

It is possible to combine files in different coordinate systems: lattitude / longitude or UTM. Users would be able to select the desired coordinate system and make the proper conversions.

CADE Pro supports the following geo data file types:

  • The ESRI Shapefile, or simply a shapefile, is a popular geospatial vector data format for geographic information systems software.

  • Raster images: For the raster images it could be used TIF, MrSID, JPG, PNG formats. Geo TIFF and MrSID files contain the geo reference information in the Geo tag inside the file. In case of the other formats image file is accompanied with so called World file containing the geo reference information.

CADE Pro loads ESRI attributes and includes quite complicated functionality to position them on the document. CADE Pro allows the user to select the visible attributes and visualization properties such as text size, alignment, layer and color.



Computer-aided Design.


AutoCAD DXF (Drawing Interchange or Drawing Exchange Format) is a CAD data file format, developed by Autodesk as their solution for enabling data interoperability between AutoCAD and other programs.


DWG, also commonly known as "drawing", is a file format for CAD drawings. It was originally used by the Interact CAD package [1], and then taken over by Autodesk for their AutoCAD program. The DWG format, along with its ASCII variant, DXF, has become the de facto standard file format for CAD drawing exchange; it has been estimated that there are over one billion DWG files in existence.


DGN (Design) is the name used for CAD file formats supported by Bentley Systems' Microstation and Intergraph's Interactive Graphics Design System (IGDS) CAD programs.


The ESRI Shapefile, or simply a shapefile, is a popular geospatial vector data format for geographic information systems software.


Windows Metafile (WMF) and Enhanced Metafile (EMF) are the native file formats used by Microsoft Windows, created by the copy and paste functions. A metafile graphic is a collection of commands made to the Graphic Device Interface (GDI) file, which is the file Windows uses to draw objects on screen and print them to non-PostScript printers. WMF is a 16-bit graphic format; EMF is a 32-bit graphic format with additional functionality. Both formats are supported by Windows 95 and later.


Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) by Microsoft is a declarative XML-based language used to initialize structured values and objects. The acronym originally stood for Extensible Avalon Markup Language, where Avalon was the code-name for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).
