AutoCAD compatibility for larger projects
For its largest projects, Arrow Sign’s shop drawings are created in AutoCAD. Here, the ability of Canvas to handle over 100 file formats proves essential.
Canvas drawings are exported as DXF files which Arrow Sign engineers integrate into an AutoCAD drawing. That drawing is sent to the building department for engineering approval and the Canvas drawing is submitted to the planning department.
“Canvas has features that, to this day, a lot of the other programs don’t have. The ability to work on multiple page documents, the import and export capabilities, and the depth it has in terms of dimensioning and drawing to scale are invaluable.”

“Canvas has all the features to do not only all our design drawings but also all of the manuals we have to provide; the technical literature, the specifications, the wiring diagrams. On top of that we can use it for our presentations, our flyers, our print pieces and so on. It’s a great tool.”
