Visual Integrity and Open Design Alliance (ODA) have announced a PDF technology cooperation. Visual Integrity will license its FLY SDK to the ODA to be used as a PDF underlay. Visual Integrity will also make additional PDF plug-ins for Teigha, the ODA software development platform for engineering applications. These will allow ODA members to read or import PDF files and render them as editable DWG or DGN files.
“ODA Members will see immediate benefits from adding support for PDF underlays,” says Jean Haney, CEO and co-founder of Visual Integrity. “The rich data resident in the PDF files enables features for their users that accelerate drawing time, such as layer views, line and object snapping, rotation, scaling and other property adjustments. With an additional plug-in, editing the PDF drawing is even possible.”
