Volo View Express is a program used to launch, print, and view AutoCAD design data. These are files in DWF (drawing web format), DXF (data exchange file) drawings, DWG, and other design data files. The program can view drawings that use Volo View Express without the use of AutoCAD application. The program also supports ACIS solids and other embedded raster images.
It can do other functions like viewing multiple layouts and the capability of displaying real-time 3D orbit. It can print to any print device that is supported by Window and is able to use the Microsoft IntelliMouse (wheel mouse) for such uses as zooming in (or panning) on objects. Volo View Express is compatible with and may be used on applications like Java, Visual Basic, C or C++, PowerBuilder and other Windows applications.
The program’s data can be accessed by Autodesk Design Review in viewing, printing, measuring, and commenting on designs in a particular file. With Design Review, the Volo View Express basics are duplicated. The other available features include alert stamps, markup review, and better revision control. (Viewing DWG files need a download of DWG TrueView.) Without the upgrade to the latest DWF viewer, it can still view the data but without the full 3D file viewing feature set.
