Como, Italy (PRWEB) February 8, 2010 — Architects, tradesmen, engineers, designers and drafters considering AutoCAD, Auto CAD LT, or IntelliCAD will be impressed with progeCAD 2010′s unique value proposition: AutoCAD 2010 software compatibility for under USD$400 with online support. Unlike most AutoCAD compatible CAD programs, progeCAD 2010 Professional goes far beyond mere DWG file read/write with dozens of in-depth AutoCAD-like features like gradient hatch pattern and orientation control, an upgraded “fly-out” properties palette, 3D Studio Max 3DS file export, advanced CTB and PDF layer support. Nevertheless, progeCAD’s most inviting feature continues to be its incredibly low price compared to AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT.
“progeCAD 2010 is a tool that helps designers use their PCs in the best and simplest way possible” explains Damiano Croci, progeSOFT Senior director, “Also thanks to Windows 7 and DWG 2010 support”.
More and more engineering and architectural drawings are being saved, archived and distributed on the Adobe PDF format due to its small size, portable secure nature, and free tools available to display with great accuracy the files produced. In recent years the format has been improved with the addition of support for layers within the files produced. ProgeCAD has in the past been able to not only print to PDF, but has the unique ability to import PDF files and convert those files to drawings fully editable from within progeCAD Professional. progeCAD 2010 has improved support for the more recent enhancements of Adobe PDF providing the ability to import, convert, and print to the multilayer PDF format. A designer can receive a PDF from a collaborating partner on a project and is able to import the drawing to progeCAD for editing and additions.
progeCAD 2009 offers powerful interface updates like right-mouse click context menus, improved speed and reliability. AutoCAD LT users should be especially interested in true ACIS 3D modeling, AutoLISP, VBA, and SDS (C++) program extensions – features not supported by AutoCAD LT. The release of progeCAD 2010 Professional will bring the addition of the ability to profile solid models allowing you to display 2d representations of your 3d models.
The Network version of progeCAD 2010 Professional features a new network license manager (NLM) which allows users to check out their licenses and take them with them keeping the software available to them until they return and release the license back to the NLM. This allows users to travel to and from work sites without losing the function of their network licenses while on the trip.
progeCAD’s compatibility with DWG 2010 and earlier drawings, easy-to-use, no learning curve, “AutoCAD Like” user interface, and wealth of features make progeCAD 2010 Professional a truly “professional” platform that is still unbelievably affordable – less than USD $400.00 suggested retail price. The release of progeCAD 2010 Professional comes at a time when just such an affordable, yet robust AutoCAD-compatible drawing program is really needed.
progeCAD 2010 Professional will be available in the following languages: English, German, Italian, Russian, French, Polish, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), Serbian, Spanish
Current progeCAD users are reminded that they can upgrade to the latest version at a significant discount to the already-low price of the full version. progeSOFT has improved the progeCAD software registration and activation interface making licensing progeCAD 2010 simple and reliable. Network NLM, USB mobile, and corporate licensing options for the 2010 version are available.
