RasEdit — Raster reference file editor for MicroStation
By Eiren Smith
Clearwater, Florida, USA — Axiom, the world's most experienced developer of time-saving MicroStation solutions, announces the acquisition of the popular MicroStation raster reference file editor, RasEdit, from Mill Creek Systems of Arlington Heights, Illinois.
Axiom will take over all support for existing RasEdit customers and also plans to continue to improve the product.
RasEdit is an attractive alternative to high-priced raster reference file editors for users who need to manipulate monochrome raster reference files from within MicroStation. RasEdit modifies the attached raster files directly. It includes such direct raster editing features as copy, move and delete based on a fence or a user-defined rectangle. Yes, it can actually delete unneeded portions of a raster image in just one step! RasEdit also includes more advanced features, such as the ability to "stamp" regular MicroStation vector elements — like ellipses, line strings and text — into the raster reference file as raster data.
RasEdit's intuitive user interface makes raster reference file editing so simple that it requires little or no training for new users. Configuration for administrators is extremely straightforward, making it very easy to roll RasEdit out at new sites.
According to Eiren Smith, Axiom's RasEdit product manager, "We're very proud to add Mill Creek's outstanding software to our arsenal of MicroStation tools. This acquisition contributes to our overall strategy — to provide more powerful CAD tools to our customers than ever before. We're really excited to expand our ability to help our MicroStation users with RasEdit."
