CrossManager

CrossManager
Stand-alone converters
for CAD files and in batch.

CrossManager

With CrossManager, converting the CAD files of your choice is easy.
  • 01 - You select one or more files.
  • 02 - You convert them into the chosen format.
  • Does not require an external licence.
  • Easy to use.
  • Reliable conversion of 2D and 3D data.
  • Regular updates

    directly on the Datakit website for users with an up-to-date maintenance contract.

Test CrossManager for free (select your read format and view results in PDF3D format). Having an account is required Get a quote Having an account is required Download documentation
A CrossManager configuration includes:
  • the conversion engine,
  • a reading module for each file format to be read,
  • a write module for each format to be written.
Our solution also includes maintenance:
  • quarterly updates (to maintain the ability to read and write the latest versions of native files),
  • technical support.
As an example, in 2023, the annual price of a CrossManager solution at a fixed location to read 1 native format and convert it into 1 other is about €1500 (excl. VAT). To read 3 native formats and write in 1 other, the price would be €2500 (excl. VAT).
CrossManager Advanced
CrossManager Advanced supports batch file conversions, so you can convert entire directories recursively, with no limitations.

  • How licences work

    You must have a licence to use CrossManager.
    You can buy one by contacting us, or has applied for a trial license to test the quality of the software.
    Each input or output format requires its own licence to work.
    That way, you can order your "à la carte" configuration according to your needs, and only buy the formats you need.
    We provide three types of licenses :
    -Des fixed licences, that operate on a single workstation.
    -Des floating licences, installed on a licence server to let you use CrossManager on different workstations. You can choose the number of “tokens”, which defines the number of users who can use the software simultaneously.
    -Des remote licenses, installed on a single workstation, but which can be used remotely from another workstation.
