IntelliCAD Technology Consortium Announces IntelliCAD® Mobile Platform

Portland, OR, USA, August 20, 2013 — The IntelliCAD Technology Consortium (ITC) today announced its new IntelliCAD Mobile Platform with the release of IntelliCAD Android Viewer.

The IntelliCAD Android Viewer opens .dwg files on Android mobile devices and includes viewing features such as: 2D and 3D modes, layer visibility, model or layout selection, orthographic or isometric views, wireframe or shaded views, and interactive touch zoom, pan, and rotation. Additionally, simple measurements can be quickly calculated between two selected points.

With mobile device touchscreens you can use either two finger or single finger input. Two finger input enables dual pan and zoom operations. One finger input supports multiple modes — either pan, dynamic 3D rotation or distance measurements.

The mobile platform is also planned for Apple® iOS and Microsoft® Windows® RT operating systems in the near future.

David Lorenzo, ITC Development Director, stated, “The IntelliCAD mobile platform is an inexpensive way for ITC members to experiment with new mobile technology solutions, and while the ITC takes its CAD platform experience and applies it to mobile viewing, data extraction and markup, the ITC also gains multi-platform and touch screen experience that could migrate back to the core IntelliCAD engine.”

ITC members initiated mobile technology development within the ITC to address increasing use of mobile devices by their CAD users. By pooling resources, members reduce costs through shared development of the core platform while having the ability to create unique vertical solutions for their markets.

IntelliCAD Mobile Technology is now available for ITC Commercial and API member licensing. ITC members who license the technology have access to source code and base APIs to access and modify drawing data for customization with their own vertical mobile solutions. The annual fee for the mobile platform is $3,000 – including royalty free, worldwide distribution.

Interested IntelliCAD users can contact ITC members to receive details about availability of future IntelliCAD software based on the mobile platform.

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
