open access layout web page header


Artwork's Qckvu 3.0 now supports layout views for Open Access (OA) databases.


In addition to the basic viewer functions, Artwork is willing to customize the viewer to fit into an OEM application and to integrate additional modules with functions such as net tracing, boolean operations and remote control, scripting or editing.

Layer Settings

Each layer can be assigned a unique outline color, fill color and fill pattern. Layers can be assigned "names" which will be displayed in the layer toolbar. Once you have gotten your colors and fills and descriptions set up, you can save them to a "map" file and pull it up later when viewing the same file or a different file based on the same "technology."
