IntelliCAD Technology Consortium Announces Release of IntelliCAD 10.0

IntelliCAD 10 DisplayThe IntelliCAD Technology Consortium (ITC) today announced the release of IntelliCAD 10.0.

IntelliCAD 10.0 is a major release that includes numerous new features.

The OpenGL ES graphics device is now supported for enhanced display quality and performance, which also includes new visual styles. A new materials library contains materials that can be assigned to entities and layers and then displayed with visual styles; spot and point lights can also now display in-program with visual styles. The redesigned View Manager has more options available and allows users to make selections dynamically for the view’s background, perspective, lens length, etc. New dynamic input incorporates command prompts and measurement guides at the cursor. Printing with .pc3 customization files is enhanced with the ability to set margins, page size, .pmp files, and settings that vary according to the output file type. New import file formats include .obj and .stl. Many new properties are available for various entity types in the Properties pane, including the ability to view properties of custom entities. IntelliCAD 10 also includes the ability to migrate user interface customizations from previous versions.

Smaller features that will have a big efficiency boost for end-users are the ability to re-order and sort layer filters, combine paragraphs and clear formatting of multiline text, determine which user interface items are hidden when cleaning the screen, use new videos and online resources from the Start page, convert closed entities to solids, specify a layer state for each published sheet, a redesigned status bar, enhancements for Section 508 usability, better 4K display support, and an initial Hungarian translation.

For versions of IntelliCAD that work with BIM files, draw roofs and beams, create mitered joints for beams, explode attached BIM underlays into polyface meshes and polylines that can be edited while retaining underlay functionality, and use new options for section lines and elevation lines.

For versions of IntelliCAD that open, save, and edit .dgn files in their native format, the supported command set now includes Multiline Text, Chamfer, and Dimension Styles.

For technical users, IntelliCAD 10 incorporates ODA SDKs version 2020 Update 2 and enhanced .NET and IRX functionality for increased API capabilities.

Other improvements and fixes are found in performance, working with files, editing and selecting entities, text, printing, and more.

David Lorenzo, ITC President, stated, “IntelliCAD 10 is a huge structural update with new core libraries from the ODA, a new geometry library, updated graphics, and new APIs. Yes, there are several interesting new features for users too, but the structural changes provide a much stronger foundation on which ITC members can build even more complex and diverse applications.”

IntelliCAD 10.0 is supported on Microsoft® Windows® 10, Windows 8, and Windows 7 64-bit versions. IntelliCAD Mobile Viewer versions are available for Windows desktop, Google® Android™, Apple® macOS® and iOS.
