Many Ways to Compare
Locating design variations is easy with Drawing Compare. You can select “Zoom to Differences” to quickly spot updates, or use the new Toggle feature to locate changes. Once you’ve identified them, there are options to switch from one image to the other, to show only the differences, or to have the differences blink, quickly highlighting where changes have been made. You can even create an animated .gif of the differences in the two files in order to share these with others.
Drawing Compare is an invaluable aid when working collaboratively on a project to quickly see the updates that have been made. You can also use it to compare an ‘As Built’ drawing to a customised version. Plus it’s great when picking up on older projects to note the status of updates.

What's New in this Version
New in Version 2
NEW 3D File Support
Drawing Compare now can compare differences in 3D files, as well as 2D. In addition, 10 different drawing views are now supported including four 3D Isometric views and six 2D views. Previously, Drawing Compare v1 only supported a comparison of files in a Plan (Top) view. In 3D views, Drawing Compare supports comparison in a Wire Frame view only.
NEW Save Comparison Results as Animated GIFs
Differences found between two documents can be saved as animated .GIF files. When opened, the animated GIF will display in the same blinking fashion as Drawing Compare displays the differences between the two files. It’s a great way to email results of your drawing comparison to your design team.
NEW Toggle through drawing differences
With the new Next arrow tool you can toggle your way through sections of either of the drawings being compared to see what differences exist in that section of the drawing. The Next tool uses forward and back Arrow keys to allow you to examine the differences in a structured fashion.
