Autodesk Raster Design 2014

With multi-media training videos from AGT.

This powerful add-on allows you to insert and edit images such as aerials or scanned paper documents in your AutoCAD drawings. Rubbersheeting routines allow you to transform the images accurately to match real-world coordinates. In addition, images can be edited and can also be converted into lines, arcs, polylines and text. You can even convert contour lines from an image into polylines for use in your drawing.


Insert aerial photographs into your drawing

With Raster Design, you can insert aerial photographs into your drawing and overlay your line-work on top of them.


Touch-up images without leaving AutoCAD

With Raster Design, you can adjust the colors of an image, sharpen or soften an image, and even clean up stray clutter, without ever leaving AutoCAD.


Trace contours and polylines

Scan and insert a TOPO, then let Raster Design follow along each contour line and convert it to an AutoCAD Polyline.


Learning made easier

Each lesson is presented as a movie that runs on your computer. Watch AutoCAD being put through its paces as the instructor teaches you how to use Raster Design. Its just like having the instructor sitting at your computer while you're watching over his shoulder!
