Now Available: progeCAD 2021

progecad_2021

The focus of progeCAD 2021 is the CAD operator and their comfort. Right at the progeCAD start, users can see the new stylish Start page with all the necessary resources at their fingertips: drawing templates, recent drawings, and tutorials. Drafting and design tasks become much easier and quicker with progeCAD 2021 new options, commands and features. The new SELFILTER and SELECTION CYCLING commands make selection and editing of similar objects an effortless process. Associative arrays speed up creation and editing of multiple objects by arranging them in circular or rectangular patterns. The DATAEXTRACTION command allows users to create different tables such as bill of materials and part lists by extracting data from block attributes, object properties, and drawing information.

progeCAD 2021 also makes multi-page PDF documents through the PDF Append function to better organize drawing documentation. Now it is possible to enrich drawings with additional information and data through QRCODEs. There are also new features for specific fields of drafting such as section and elevation line creation, 2D parametric libraries of mechanical and structural components for construction, import of .sldprt part files and .sldasm assembly files, and much more.

progeCAD is 2D/3D DWG/DXF-native CAD software based on the IntelliCAD engine. Its AEC, MCAD, and general CAD users benefit from native .dwg compatibility, a perpetual software license, and robust features for working with CAD drawings.

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.”
