Plug-Ins for CAD6

Plug-ins are functional extensions with which a current license of CAD6 Pro can be extended according to each user’s specific needs. CAD6 Industry and CAD6 Studio already contain all plug-ins listed here.

Plug-ins can only be purchased for Malz++Kassner CAD6 Pro licenses with non-expired Support & Updates.

Text on Path

Align texts to any type of contour, e.g. along a circle or curved line. The text remains editable!

Auto Converter

Automatically convert directory structures with all manageable file types. Convert directory structures to libraries and vice versa (requires the respective filters). Create index files (e.g. for SAP®).


Commands to create precise arrows, oval shapes, freehand lines, and complex Bézier curves. Especially useful to manually vectorize scanned templates.


Creation and editing of both simple and complex tables, also directly linked to databases.


Create lettering elements in technical drawings, such as tolerances, surface finish, center holes, etc. All texts remain editable!

DWG Import and Export

Import of DWG drawing files of all versions up to Release 2016. Various settings such as object and text scaling, handling of duplicate layers and line patterns. Export of all or selected objects into DWG drawing files, optionally scaled.

Incremental & Reference Dimensions

Create incremental and reference dimensions in a single process without any unnecessary input.

DXF Import and Export

Import of DXF drawing files of all versions up to Release 2016. Various settings such as object and text scaling, handling of duplicate layers and line patterns. Export of all or selected objects into DXF drawing files, optionally scaled.


Create and modify 3D components in 3D space based on 2D objects, using numerous projection types and lighting effects; resolve 3D objects back into 2D objects; convert objects drawn in planar or perspective view into another perspective view; import and export standard STL files; export U3D files.

HP-GL/2 Import and Export

Import supports all standard objects plus Bézier curves, filled areas and texts, explicit colors and up to 10 decimal places. Export with a maximum of flexibility. Specify export options for pen or cutting plotters, laser plotters, or inkjet plotters. The export filter fully exploits the capabilities of HP-GL/2: Unlimited colors, precise output of line width and pattern, Bézier curves, filled areas, up to 10 decimal places. Fully configurable.

Edit Geometry Data

View and edit the geometry data of single objects in a dialog window, alter the radius of an existing circle or the starting angle of an arc numerically.

SVG Export

Exports drawing parts to SVG format (optionally compressed), an XML-based vector graphic format. This format can be displayed directly in internet browsers, enabling you to create prefect presentations and product catalogs in the internet.

Color Handling

Modify object colors - tinting, lightening, darkening, converting to grayscale, and numerical color editing.

SHP Import and Export

Import and Export of ESRI® Shapefiles with points, lines, and areas (SHP file). The attributes are imported from the corresponding dBASE® file (DBF) and can be managed using CAD6's database commands.

Automatic Archive

Archive a complete directory with all contained sub-directories and drawing files, with all external references being converted into internal ones.

Construction Aid

Use the Dynamic Snapping Guide to create temporary snapping objects during point input. Plus 75 additional commands to create permanent construction aid objects. Use these objects to create complex constructions.

Texture / Color Gradient

Fill objects and surfaces of all kinds with multi-color color gradients and patterns (textures). All parameters and colors remain editable!

Digitizer Support

Use any digitizer with a WINTAB compatible driver. Command selection, direct coordinate digitizing from templates. Customizable digitizer layout.

Function Plotter

Generate mathematical function plots and multivariable function plots as marks, polylines or spline curves, plus customizable X-/Y-axes and coordinate system.

Bitmap Export

Export parts of the drawing as bitmaps (BMP, TIF, JPG, PNG, GIF). Size, resolution, and color depth of up to 24 bits can be selected.

Zoom Views

Store and manage multiple drawing-dependent zoom areas in a separate window.
