ProgeCAD is proud to unveil the new version of iCADMac 2014, the real AutoCAD® alternative in the world of Apple®.
iCADMac, a 2D/3D DWG/DXF- native CAD for Mac OS X, offers an ideal solution for Apple® users who can avail themselves of a cutting-edge CAD technology at a competitive price for their everyday design tasks. The software provides full compatibility with DWG, the CAD standard format recognised officially worldwide, as well as a vast range of tools and features to enhance 2D design and 3D modelling.
The DWG file format ensures thorough compatibility with AutoCAD® files from Version 2.5 up to V.2014. Having a familiar look-and-feel and hence no learning curve for AutoCAD® users, iCADMac can serve as a perfect AutoCAD® replacement. Furthermore, the new 2014 version is compatible with Mavericks and better supports the Mac Os Mountain Lion features.
Drawings created with iCADMac can be displayed and edited on iPad™, iPhone® and iPod touch® in the DWG and PDF file formats.
iCADMac is the first CAD software for Mac exclusively enabling export from DWG to 3D PDF to obtain an interactive 3D model of a project, displayable and editable simply with Adobe Reader.
The PDF format facilitates sharing and revision of 3D models within a design team, among suppliers and customers.
iCADMac 2014 offers other advanced and exclusive functionality:
- Convert from PDF to DWG
- The iCADLib module to manage block libraries with over 22.000 ready-to-use blocks
- Free access to the Traceparts and Cadenas portals integrated in iCADLib
iCADMac’s other exclusive commands: LOFT, CLOUD, PACKANDGO, SMARTLEADER and Field. The LOFT command creates a new solid object or a surface by specifying a series of cross sections. The CLOUD command allows you to create revision clouds to indicate that certain areas of the drawing require or contain revisions. The PACKANDGO command creates a compressed file/package containing the current drawing and its dependent files, such as referenced images, referenced PDF files, font files and font mapping files, PrintStyle files and print configuration files. The SMARTLEADER command helps to draw leader lines that connect annotations to a drawing entity. The Field command adds fields to update visible information such as modification data, drawing name and author. The full list of the iCADMac 2014 features is available here.
Damiano Croci, CEO at ProgeCAD, comments: “iCADMac is the right tool to manage CAD projects in the Mac environment. The affordable price alongside with the provided quality functionality make our alternative product highly competitive compared to other CAD alternatives. Our company has always been striving to live up to expectations of its customers and to propose CAD solutions of the latest generation. The current version has actually been enhanced through implementation of such innovative and unique features as 3D PDF export. iCADMac is the only CAD software for Mac offering this feature”.
The progeCAD team has also thought of the necessities of its customers who make use of the latest innovative devices such as iPAD, iPhone and iPOD. DWG drawings can be edited on iCADMac and sent free to iPAD, on which the drawings are displayed in the protected and advanced PDF file format. In this way, iCADMac users will always have their drawings at hand, even when they are working on the site.
