Portland, OR May 15, 2007 - The IntelliCAD Technology Consortium (ITC), the developer of IntelliCAD core technology, today announced the New IntelliCAD.
The New IntelliCAD represents a complete redesign of 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 based on DWGdirect, a non-proprietary design format compatible with ARX and Autodesk-related systems available from the Open Design Alliance.
ITC welcomes all developers who have ARX applications and application developers closely reliant on IntelliCAD technology to learn more about the New IntelliCAD. Interested parties register at http://www.intellicad.org/register/. Registrants will receive invitations for webinars, newsletters, beta testing opportunities, and the status of the New IntelliCAD development and availability. ITC anticipates the alpha test release July 2007 and the full release to occur at the start of 2008.
According to ITC President Arnold van der Weide, "We are excited about the New IntelliCAD which culminates a long-term effort to build the next-generation system, with over 20 man-years invested thus far on the project."
"After three years in development, I believe that the New IntelliCAD is the perfect solution for ARX based application developers who are looking for an alternative to AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. At this point we want everyone to plan ahead for taking advantage of all the potential of the New IntelliCAD."
