ITC Member ACCA Software Releases PriMus-TO

ACCA Software, member of the ITC, announced the release of PriMus-TO based on the IntelliCAD 7.2 engine. 

ACCA's new software opens, without conversion, .dwg and .dxf files produced with other CAD software and graphically quantifies entities and blocks contained in the drawing. The metric information is acquired automatically and the aggregation of graphical entities to price list items and formulas creates a single element in which design and BoQ are linked together.
