Scan2CAD is raster and vector conversion and editing CAD (Computer-aided design) software.

The software is developed in the UK by Avia Systems.

History[edit]

Scan2CAD's first version was released in 1993. The publishing company was Softcover International. This company continued to publish the software until 2010 when Avia Systems acquired the software.[1]

The development team has continued to be the same throughout the full lifetime of the software.

Scan2CAD is now used across the world by a very wide variety of users ranging from government[2] and large industrial organisations to smaller individual firms. It has been translated to 4 localised language versions including Polish,[3] Italian, French and Japanese. A free trial of the Scan2CAD software is currently bundled with the HP T2300 scanner.[4]
