IntelliCAD Technology Consortium Announces Release of IntelliCAD® 9.0a

IntelliCAD 9 Sample

Portland, OR, USA, November 14, 2018 — The IntelliCAD Technology Consortium (ITC) announced the release of IntelliCAD 9.0a. IntelliCAD 9.0a is a maintenance release for version 9.0 that was previously issued on June 29, 2018.

IntelliCAD maintenance releases concentrate on fixes, but IntelliCAD 9.0a also includes several new features: add blocks to tool palettes for quick re-use, set the cursor to a gun sight crosshairs, toggle cursor colors and types on the fly, and chamfer and fillet edges of 3D solids.

Other improvements and fixes are found in performance, working with files, drawing and editing, printing, and customization.

“We heard from ITC members and users that IntelliCAD version 9.0, released summer 2018, was the most stable release of IntelliCAD, ever,” commented David Lorenzo, ITC President. “We continue to better the engine with maintenance releases like 9.0a, and in parallel we develop more new directions and features.”

IntelliCAD 9.0a is supported on Microsoft® Windows® 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista®, including 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

Interested IntelliCAD users can contact ITC members to receive details about availability of IntelliCAD software.

Companies interested in more details about IntelliCAD and membership in the ITC should contact the ITC directly. For more information about IntelliCAD and the ITC, including case studies, please visit http://www.intellicad.org/.
