An SVG-Based Interactive Drawing Viewing Solution for Mobile Design or Manufacturing Collaboration


Article Preview

To enable drawing viewing in the mobile manufacturing collaboration environment, an SVG-based solution is proposed. It converts the CAD files into SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) files for PCs, PDAs(Personal Digital Assistants) and smart phones. Assisted by corresponding SVG viewer, different terminals can view the same file at the same time. On the basis of operation decoding and encoding, collaborative interaction and awareness can be supported. The solution implements drawing viewing across heterogeneous terminals. And it can benefit the mobile design or manufacturing collaboration a lot in certain case.
