IntelliCAD Technology Consortium Announces Release of IntelliCAD® 8.2

Portland, OR, USA, July 1, 2016 — The IntelliCAD Technology Consortium (ITC) today announced the release of IntelliCAD 8.2.

IntelliCAD 8.2 is a major release that includes new support for exporting 3D .pdf files; more options added to existing features that export 2D .pdf files, export .bmp files, and attach underlays; new in-place multiline text editor; new support for maximizing and minimizing viewports; and various other new commands such as BCOUNT, IMAGEFRAMEMODE, FIELD, and TEXTTOFRONT. IntelliCAD 8.2 also includes improved performance when working with complex blocks, panning and zooming, exporting to .pdf files, and more.

IntelliCAD 8.2 is optionally available with the ability to open, save, create, and edit .dgn files in the native DGN format. IntelliCAD 8.2 also includes optional integration with Artisan Renderer to create photorealistic images of models quickly using a wide range of pre-set materials and lighting setups combined with the ability to create custom lights and realistic materials.

For IntelliCAD versions that include a ribbon, IntelliCAD 8.2 now includes ribbon panel expanders, ribbon versioning support, and the ability to customize the ribbon using the CUSTOMIZE command.

IntelliCAD 8.2 is supported on Microsoft® Windows® 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista®, including 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

David Lorenzo, ITC President said, "This new release not only continues our commitment to improve performance and features for editing native .dwg files but provides optional native editing for .dgn files as well. A lot of work has gone into the core to allow native editing for different file formats within the same framework, and I am excited to see how the ITC and its members can leverage that in the future.”
