The IntelliCAD Technology Consortium Announces IntelliCAD® World Meeting 2008

Come to Athens to meet the development team and see the new IntelliCAD.

The IntelliCAD Technology Consortium (ITC) ( announces the fourth IntelliCAD World Meeting, a multi-day conference designed for people interested in IntelliCAD to meet with ITC members, the IntelliCAD development team, and other innovators in the CAD industry.

IntelliCAD World Meeting 2008 will be held October 29 to 31, 2008 in Athens, Greece. The conference focuses on the next generation of the IntelliCAD technology, to be released during Q2 2009. Seminars will demonstrate the capabilities and importance of this new technology, including new components and application programming interfaces to create custom objects in IntelliCAD. These new development tools further enhance the current capabilities of ITC members to create advanced object-oriented vertical solutions for their end-users.

The ITC team has been working for over 3 years refactoring the widely used IntelliCAD engine, an open platform upon which hundreds of engineering applications have been based. The new IntelliCAD will offer greater speed and wider functionality, and is using the Open Design Alliance DWGdirectTM libraries as its internal database, aimed at offering the best alternative to Autodesk® AutoCAD® for developers.

Mark Driscoll, OEM Business Development Manager for Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corp., commented that his company "has been a member of the ITC for many years now and we have seen how this technology has advanced over the years. ARX functionality together with native DWG support in a familiar look and feel will definitely turn the "New IntelliCAD" into a more valuable resource for our customers in support of their 2D drawing data. As a software development platform, IntelliCAD provides a robust and feature rich environment in which CAD software developers may build their applications."

When asked about this year's upcoming IntelliCAD World Meeting, ITC Chairman of the Board and co-founder of DP Tech, Cedric Desbordes said, "This meeting is of high interest for our members, and any company interested in the IntelliCAD technology, to discover the great potential of IntelliCAD 7 and learn how they can start now to migrate their ARX, DRX, SDS or ADS applications. More than ever it is time to join the consortium and I encourage potential members to attend this meeting to learn more about IntelliCAD, our members, and our technology partners."
