Portland, Oregon, USA, 25 July 2011 – progeCAD USA, (www.progecad.us), a leader in 2D/3D CAD software, has announced the release of progeCAD® 2011 Professional, the next major release of the proven AutoCAD® replacement Computer Aided Design software.
progeCAD 2011 Professional, an alternative to high priced CAD systems such as AutoCAD®, allows designers to become productive immediately using a similar menu structure, similar commands, and the same DWG drawing file format as AutoCAD®, at 1/10th the price, and with little or no learning curve for former AutoCAD® users.
progeCAD 2011 Professional has been optimized for Microsoft Windows® 7, taking advantage of the special features included and achieving full compatibility with the preferred Windows Operating System. progeCAD is poised to not only dominate the low cost CAD market but also to meet the demands of customers whose use of Computer Aided Design spans many industries and domains.
Designers, drafters, engineers, architects and other professionals will be able to speed up the drawing process thanks to over a million ready-to-use blocks, included through a special agreement with TraceParts, an online repository of CAD blocks, symbols, and models available in most cases at no charge.
New Block Manager
Those familiar with progeCAD have most likely used the A.L.E. Block Manager and can testify to its somewhat dated interface. The progeSOFT team went to work on a completely new and different Block Manager called iCADLib. The iCADLib Module enables intuitive and seamless work when creating, saving, inserting, and working with blocks in your drawings.
The new Block Manager contains over 20.000 2D/3D ready-to use blocks for various industries such as Construction, Architecture, Mechanical, Electrical, Electronic, Bedrooms, Bathrooms, Kitchens, and others.
EasyArch for 2D Architecture
The new progeCAD 2011 version includes a plug-in for architects at no extra charge called Easy-Arch, an automated building tool designed to increase productivity in architectural, interior design, and renovation. The Easy-Arch tool is designed to facilitate architectural and interior design providing parametric elements to quickly and easily create such building elements as walls, roofs, openings, stairs and many other architectural objects.
Over 100 Million Choices.
progeCAD 2011 Professional has added integration of the TraceParts online content library. This feature is of particular interest and usefulness for Mechanical Designers and Engineers. TraceParts also includes electric, electronic, agricultural, furniture and many other parts libraries to satisfy the professional needs of CAD professionals from a wide range of sectors.
The TraceParts portal is one of the biggest parts libraries in the world offering over 100 million 2D and 3D CAD models. The new progeCAD 2011 Professional version provides personalized and exclusive access to the TraceParts library with unlimited and free download of any elements from the catalogues as well as different parts complying with the following international standards: ANSI, ASME, BS, JIS, DIN, ISO and UNI.
The downloaded components are seamlessly integrated in the iCADLib blocks libraries and can be quickly inserted into your drawings exactly the same way you work with the other iCADLib blocks.
iCARE Subscription and Support
Introduced with version 2011 is the iCARE Subscription service. The new iCARE Subscription maintenance and support program offers a variety of benefits to help customers get the most out of their progeCAD software. It enables the Customer to cut down upgrade costs and receive comprehensive technical assistance via the web within the new help desk service. The progeSOFT developers can organize, track, measure, and respond through ticket, email, live chat and remote support.
