Understanding progeCADUnderstanding progeCAD
progeCAD is designed for anyone who wants a fast and efficient CAD program
with all the power and versatility of standard programs such as Autodesk®
AutoCAD® , or MicroStation® by Bentley Systems®, at an affordable
price. Using today's advanced technology, progeCAD integrates the Microsoft® Windows interface with a powerful CAD engine.
progeCAD provides unparalleled compatibility with AutoCAD, using most of
the same file formats including those for drawings (.dwg files), linetypes,
hatch patterns, and text styles. You can also use AutoCAD menu files and run
Autodesk® AutoLISP® programs. If you have written your own ADS (AutoCAD
Development System® by Autodesk®) programs, simply recompile them to
link with the progeCAD libraries. Many third-party ADS programs already support
progeCAD. If you have a program that is not already supported, ask your software
vendor to provide an progeCAD-compatible version of their program.
progeCAD is more compatible with the AutoCAD program than any other CAD product,
delivers additional tools with advanced CAD features, and has a seamless Microsoft®
Windows® integration. This powerful program provides a superb combination
of features for CAD users like architects, engineers, and designers.
progeCAD incorporates standard features found in other CAD programs, along
with features and capabilities you won't find anywhere else. Its multiple-document
interface (MDI) lets you open and work with several drawings at the same time.
You can easily copy drawing entities between drawings. In addition, the powerful
Drawing Explorer lets you manage information and settings and quickly copy layers,
linetypes, and other information between drawings.
