Free Education Edition of CMS IntelliCAD Available

CMS education

CAD-Manufacturing Solutions (CMS) has a longstanding arrangement with education institutions to provide free access to CMS IntelliCAD for educational purposes.

Not only do educators and students have the ability to create 2D and 3D models, they also can develop add-ons using LISP, VBA, .NET, SDS, and IRX programming languages. And distribution is easy — just run the program locally from the cloud.

CMS IntelliCAD is designed for architects, engineers, designers and anyone who wants a fast, efficient, and powerful CAD program on their desktop or in the cloud. CMS IntelliCAD is based on the IntelliCAD platform; to see how CMS and the ITC work together, see the success story

ALCAD 2021 Available with IntelliCAD via OEM License from CMS

alcad

Newly released with IntelliCAD technology at its core, ALCAD 2021 is now available with a choice of CAD platforms thanks to OEM licensing through ITC member CAD-Manufacturing Solutions (CMS).

ALCAD 2021 is a specialty MEP and HVAC toolset with an extensive symbol library, plus all the features you'd expect from full-featured CAD software. While ALCAD used to be available only with Autodesk® AutoCAD®, now ALCAD users have a choice in platforms including price and licensing terms (subscription vs. perpetual).

OEM licensing through an ITC member such as CMS helps both established and startup companies quickly access a wider range of end users. It also helps developers with new plugins before reaching market share when an ITC commercial membership is a good option. 

Through automation and collaboration, the ITC has been working with members to make it easier for them to provide OEM versions of IntelliCAD — ALCAD 2021 is a win for this ongoing effort!

CMS Continues Rollout Based on IntelliCAD 10

cms intellicad 10 PE

In addition to their previous release of CMS IntelliCAD 10 Easy Run, CAD-Manufacturing Solutions (CMS) is now delivering their standalone and network versions of CMS IntelliCAD PE and PE Plus based on the IntelliCAD 10 engine. New versions include dynamic rendering, a new materials library, dynamic input, and much more.

A big reason why CMS can deliver their product suite so quickly after an IntelliCAD release is that they take advantage of an ITC service that integrates and builds their code for them.

How does it work? Three steps:

  1. CMS creates customizations in a private repository located on ITC servers.
  2. The ITC team automates and merges the latest IntelliCAD releases with CMS code. 
  3. Builds are posted to a private Builds Depot on ITC servers.

Benefiting from ITC infrastructure and automation, CMS delivers their entire product line faster with each IntelliCAD release.
