Convert CAD Drawings to Raster Image Formats

Introduction

Raster images such as JPEG, PNG, TIFF, BMP are some of the widely used file formats and as we are aware that in order to view CAD files, we need specific software to view and edit such files. But in order to share and view the files without any dependency over any specific application, one of the viable solutions is to render the DWG into raster image formats and share across multiple platforms. Aspose.CAD Cloud provides the capabilities to perform this transformation in the cloud. 

This article explains how to convert CAD drawing/image to raster image format. You can convert CAD Drawings to BMP, PNG, JPG, JPEG, JPEG2000, TIF, TIFF, PSD, GIF and WMF formats. Aspose.CAD provides the following two APIs to perform the said task:
