progeCAD 2010 Professional French Version Allows for Current DWG Compatibility and No Learning Curve for AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT Users

Como, CO, Italy 25 October 2010 – progeCAD announce the release of progeCAD 2010 Professional DWG CAD software French version. progeCAD 2010 Professional FRA offers direct read/write compatibility with DWG 2010 drawings, faster operation, and an even more“AutoCAD Like” and usability thanks the localized interface in French language.

Architects, engineers, designers and drafters using AutoCAD, Auto CAD LT, or IntelliCAD will be impressed with progeCAD 2010’s overall unique performance for price combination. Unlike most AutoCAD compatible CAD programs, progeCAD 2010 Professional goes far beyond mere DWG file compatibility with dozens of extra features like gradient hatch patterns controlled with a new “AutoCAD Like” hatch dialog, a new complete properties bar, and DWG drawing save time improvement of up to 10 times the previous speeds. Nevertheless, progeCAD’s most inviting feature continues to be its incredibly low price compared to AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT.

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 sports 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.
Corporate Licenses allow unlimited software installation under the company name: the definitive solution for medium/large size companies now able to cover all users with a very small fraction of the cost required with other CAD solutions.

progeCAD’s compatibility with DWG 2011 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 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.
