progeCAD Selected Editor’s Pick of the Week by Desktop Engineering

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

DUBLIN, NEW HAMPSHIRE, USA — Desktop Engineering (deskeng.com) announces that progeCAD USA’s (Clackamas, OR) general-purpose, AutoCAD-like 2D and 3D design application progeCAD 2010 Professional was selected as its Editor’s Pick of the Week for September 1, 2010.
“progeCAD Professional is an AutoCAD-like application. It can handle DWG files easily and that it offers commands, interfaces, ‘feel,’ and functionality that should make it readily accessible to seasoned AutoCAD users,” says Anthony J. Lockwood, editor at large for Desktop Engineering. “It’s a low-cost, general-purpose 2D and 3D design CAD system appropriate for concept sketches to MCAD layout.”
“The pitch that progeCAD USA uses is that progeCAD is an AutoCAD-like application at far less cost,” explains Lockwood. “That’s true as far as I can tell. But I actually think that progeCAD is a productivity enhancement system.”
“Its cost enables you to spread AutoCAD-like functionality around your company relatively inexpensively,” concludes Lockwood. “The hour here, the day there it can save you could return your investment in no time flat and that effect can be the one little thing that gets you to market more quickly.”Read the complete Editor’s Pick of the Week at “Low-Cost CAD System Improved.”
