QA-CAD 2017 is an essential tool in the engineering design process. If you are still plotting drawings and adding numbered stamps and revisions by hand, then QA-CAD 12 is for you! Save your valuable time and resources with our QA stamping software that overlays drawings with auto-numbered stamps and markup notes and corrections (text, sketches, boxes, lines and arrows).
With just a press of a button the drawing, along with the revision stamps and markup notes/corrections, can be saved to a PDF and sent in an email. The source drawing remains untouched by the stamping and markup operations.
QA-CAD 2017 also includes all the features and functions of CAD Viewer 2017, CAD Markup 2017, SymbolCAD 2017, and also includes the valuable add-on extension CAD Viewer Batch Command.
QA-CAD 2017 is the perfect tool for drawing revision management because it's easy to use and has many features for the professional user such as embedding field-based data and attributes into the stamps. This data can then be exported to a spreadsheet making it easy to manage your drawing revisions.
Auto-numbered QA Stamps overlay the drawing. Data and attributes may be attached to each stamp and exported to a spreadsheet.
