ProgeSoft ProgeCAD Professional 2011 v22.214.171.124 DVT
progeCAD is a computer aided 2D & 3D design program. It's based on the IntelliCAD engine which just happens to be one of AutoCAD's most powerful challengers. Because AutoCAD is the most widely used professional CAD software on the market today, anything that competes in AutoCAD's sandbox has to be able to not only vie for attention in a difficult and entrenched environment, but also provide some incentives to move off the industry standard. ProgeSOFT is a serious company with a serious CAD product and offers extensive technical product support, so we decided to give progeCAD a heavy duty test. We reviewed progeCAD over a two month period in a busy architectural and industrial design studio. progeCAD 2010, powered by the most recent IntelliCAD 6.6 engine, is an affordable and powerful DWG CAD software full compatible with Windows 7®. progeCAD 2010 contains many important new features and enhancements to offer customers improved performance, stability and speed.
progeCAD 2010 Professional reads and writes DWG format from v. 2.5 to 2010. It provides libraries with over 11,000 blocks, PDF with layers import and export, Google Earth Publishing Extension, Express Tools, ACIS solid modeling, Photorealistic Rendering, PDF, DWF, JPG and o2c printing, Raster Image management, Raster to Vector conversion, Gradient hatch, Polygonal Layout viewports, Etrack, Polar Tracking, customization with VB, VBA, C++ and Lisp.
progeCAD supports every important AutoCAD® file type, including AutoCAD® drawings (from 2.5 to 2010), AutoCAD® menus (.MNU), AutoCAD® scripts (.SCR), AutoCAD® AutoLISP routines (.LSP), AutoCAD® Drawing Exchange Format (DXF), AutoCAD® ADS Compatible programs (SDS, Solutions Development System), Windows TrueType and AutoCAD® SHP/SHX fonts, AutoCAD® Tables for plotting (.CTB), AutoCAD® Hatch Patterms, AutoCAD® Blocks, AutoCAD® Linetypes, etc.
High compatibility with AutoCAD® to Share information and Drawings
progeCAD’s original format is DWG. This ensures unrivaled compatibility with AutoCAD® without any need for file conversion.
progeCAD lets you export drawing files to any previous AutoCAD® versions, from 2.5 right through AutoCAD 2010, both in DWG and DXF format. And since drawings are natively created in DWG, they can be shared between progeCAD and AutoCAD® without losing any critical information. progeCAD 2010 is fully compatible with Windows 7®.
