New Features in IntelliCAD 11.1

Enhance your print and publish experience

Publish to .pdf files using an improved interface for choosing PDF format options. Add sheets easily to the Publish list using the new Add Sheets dialog, or you can drag and drop files from Windows Explorer to the sheet list. Define custom paper sizes for .pc3 printer configuration files. Working with .pmp files is also easier now, too.

R 11 Print Dialog


Export to *.ifc files

Export three-dimensional architecture models to an .ifc file (BIM interoperability file from buildingSMART International).

R 11 IFC


Manage more styles in the Explorer

Use the Explorer to manage more: multileader styles, multiline styles, table styles, and visual styles. Use the DESIGNCENTER command as a shortcut to opening the Explorer in dialog box mode.

R 11 Explorer


Do more with tables

Specify which sheet to import when importing .xls and .xlsx files. Insert blocks in table cells. Arrange text and blocks relative to each other in table cells. Use the EDITTABLECELL command to modify table cells from the command line. Merge selected cells by row, column, or all cells. Select multiple cells by pressing Shift + arrow keys. Select an entire table row or column by clicking the row or column name.

R 11 Tables


Improve dimensioning productivity

Use the Quick Dimension command to draw a series of dimensions of the same type. Create associative center mark and center line entities by using the Center Mark and Center Line commands. Distribute equal space between linear or angular dimension lines by using the Adjust Spacing command.

R 11 Dimensions


Switch blocks with ease

Replace blocks with existing external references or with other blocks. You can also use the new Quick Block Save command to save entities as a block by specifying only the entities and block name.

New Features in IntelliCAD 11.0

Dynamically visualize drawings and models

Use section planes to dynamically visualize cross-sections of two- and three-dimensional entities and point clouds. The OpenGL ES graphics device is required. View models as though you are walking or flying through them with 3D Walk and Fly. Use the view cube to check the current viewing direction and switch between preset views and custom viewing directions. Use the view and visual style controls in the upper left corner of the current viewport to quickly apply a different view and visual style to the model. Use the new Visualize ribbon tab to access all the new visualization tools.


Section Plane


Efficiently print and publish projects

It's now easier to choose which drawings and which tabs to load sheets from automatically when the Publish dialog displays. Choose whether to add sheets for the drawing's model tab, layout tabs, or both model and layout tabs. Select multiple sheets and change the page setup or layer state for all selected sheets. Efficiently apply printer setups and layer states across multiple layouts. Reverse the order of sheets in the sheet list. Preview .pdf files before printing. Print styles and transparency can now be used at the same time.




Import various map files 

In addition to Shape files, import map files by connecting to PostgreSQL, MySQL, and WFS servers. Import polygons as closed polylines when using the Map Import command.



Export to *.obj files

Export three-dimensional models to an .obj (Wavefront Technologies) file.

Easily manage tables and Excel data links

Improved cell selection, including merged cells. Fixed range entry to allow down-up ranges. Several fixes for working with table styles. Several fixes for working with data links including updates, downloads and notifications. Several improvements to applying and changing cell formats. Improved ability to rotate tables. Fixed issues when copying and pasting text within table cells. Table preview performance improved. Use the Match Cell command to copy the properties of a source table cell and apply them to selected cells. Apply a cell style and fill color to a table cell directly from the Table Cell contextual ribbon tab (if supported by your program version).




Quickly export multiple blocks to disk

In the Explorer, select multiple blocks and right-click them to save multiple blocks to disk at the same time.

Utilize visualization states to control BIM underlays

In the BIM Properties pane, create and assign visibility states to control which levels or components are displayed. Utilize states to quickly change between different views of your BIM underlays.




Drag and drop commands to tool palettes

Drag an entity from a drawing and drop it on a tool palette to add the corresponding entity-creation command to the tool palette.



  Highlight selected entities with glow effect

Display selected entities with a glowing highlight effect. The OpenGL ES graphics device is required.

Selection Glow


Easily select geographic map coordinate systems

To use geolocation options, specify a map file, your current location, or a latitude, longitude and now a new dialog displays with appropriate coordinate systems for your lat/long location. Then you can capture an area of the geographic map as an image for offline work, add position markers, and change the map’s type (road, aerial, or hybrid). Use the new Map Service command to turn geographic map services on and off. When off, the program is prevented from accessing the Internet to display the online map, and the Mark Position, Capture Area, and Reload Image commands are unavailable.




  Effortlessly edit walls 

Wall entities now support standard editing commands like Trim, Extend, Offset, Join, Break, BreakAtPoint and Reverse. 



Interactively move and rotate in 3D

Use the 3D Positioner command to move and rotate entities interactively in three-dimensional space. Select a move axis to lock movement to either the x-, y-, or z-axis. Select an axis from the rotation gimbal to lock rotation in either the x-, y-, or z-rotation axis.

3DPositioner 200


Simplify your drawing area

On the status bar, click Isolate/Unisolate Entities to temporarily hide selected entities or isolate selected entities so that all remaining entities are temporarily hidden. When you’re ready to view all entities again, use the Unisolate Entities command.



  Enhance your *.dgn editing experience

New commands: Audit, DXF Out, DWG Out, and Divide. Import linetypes from .lin files. Convert multiple .dgn file models to .dwg files when using IntelliCAD Converter. Performance enhancements: (ssget) with an xData filter is more than 10x faster, sds_dictadd is 6x faster, regenerating and saving files with scalable linetypes is more than 10x faster, erasing entities is 4x faster, snapping is more than 10x faster, and redrawing, zooming, and panning are overall faster.
