The new release of their software for raster editing and raster to vector conversion inside AutoCAD
September 10, 2008 -- Rasterex is the world leading provider of sophisticated software for raster editing and raster to vector conversion.
RxAutoImage is an ARX application running directly inside AutoCAD, while RxSpotlight is the complementary solution for Windows. Both solutions are now up for a major update to version R9.0. You can read more about the RxSpotlight R9.0 release here.
RxAutoImage solves the problem of incorporating scanned raster data into AutoCAD. RxAutoImage allows users to clean up, edit and update scanned drawings, maps, sketches and other graphics directly inside AutoCAD. Through semi-automatic or fully automatic raster to vector conversion, the raster data can be converted to vector and hybrid information for further drawing production inside AutoCAD. Built on the true ObjectARX technology from Autodesk, RxAutoImage uses AutoCAD's own dialogs and settings together with an advanced customizable CAD-style interface.
"With the new version R9.0, our users can perform all raster editing and vectorization inside AutoCAD", says Per Christian Lindstad, CEO at Rasterex Software. "RxAutoImage turns AutoCAD into a true hybrid editor for effective CAD drawing production".
