Jytra is a leading Distributor of ProgeCAD since 2006 with huge customer base and dedicated Sales & Technical Support team.

ProgeCAD 2018 is based on IntelliCAD 8.2a technology with many new features like Artisan Rendering, Super Hatch, Dim Break, ESRI shape file import etc.




ProgeCAD 2018 Professional India Released (18-May-2017)


Jytra announces the release of ProgeCAD 2018 India versions. They are all available for download now on our downloads page in many formats like direct downloader, .exe formats, .zip formats and .iso formats.

ProgeCAD  Professional offers  standard CAD features as well as numerous handy add-ons such as the PDF to DWG Converter, Block Libraries with over 22.000 blocks, the Raster-to-Vector module, Google Earth integration, Shape file Import, Perspective Correction, the EasyArch plugin for architects, 3D PDF export, Traceparts and Cadenas portals integration with free access to thousands of blocks etc.

The new version, ProgeCAD 2018 Professional, is released on IntelliCAD 8.2 and beefed up with further new features and add-ons, proposing to the User a wide range of new efficient commands and options, enhanced tools and features as well as error fixes. To begin with, the brand new easy-to-use Artisan Render module has been incorporated to offer stunning visualisation of design projects with by far greater photorealistic render effects. Artisan makes the high quality render possible even to non-expert Users.  Perspective Image Correction is another tool of the new edition added as a result of Users’ intense and multiple requests. The tool allows to adjust perspective distortions of images directly in ProgeCAD.  Simply pick up four points of a polygon on an image and the image will be automatically corrected.

Focusing on the new commands in ProgeCAD 2018, the Superhatch command accessible through the Express Tools menu has been introduced to create amazing hatches out of images, blocks, external references and wipeout objects.  Superhatch allows the User to achieve realistic effects and simulate the use of materials, for example, roof tiling, furniture finish or mechanical components materials, even in a 2D drawing.  The SHAPE file import is also in the spotlight of the new release.  The SHAPE file, the format of interoperability with GIS applications, contains vectors such as points, lines and polygons representing geographic features (rivers, lakes, buildings, area boundaries etc.) and attributes describing this geometry.  GIS SHAPE files with data attributes extend the possibilities of geographic data representation inside a drawing.

Among other enhancements of ProgeCAD 2018:  Object Snap on PDF, DWF and DGN Underlay,  Improved Pointcloud, Default layers for hatches and dimensions and the new in-place text editor to name a few.  The ProgeCAD 2018 User Interface has been augmented with the introduction of new menus, image and text ribbon contextual tabs, Fade control on locked layers and Xrefs and new drawing area management.




ProgeCAD 2018 Software Released (17-May-2017)


ProgeCAD 2018 New Features

iCADMAC is declared Best CAD Software MAC by MacHow2 (22-Feb-2017)


MacHow2, an online magazine specializing in Mac applications, recently made a careful assessment of CAD software for Mac. The upshot of it was that iCADMac, our 2D/3D DWG/DXF CAD package for Mac, came on the list of the best CAD software for Mac. At ProgeSOFT we couldn’t but share this news with you and we are grateful to MacHow2 for finding and adding our software to their top selection list.

In the overview of CAD software for MAC, first of all, MacHow2 classifies CAD programs in terms of user experience taking into account whether the user is a professional, a student or an amateur. Then follows a long list of criteria which may help you to select the right CAD software program. According to these criteria, you should define whether you need a generic or industry specific product, a 2D or 3D CAD system, a free or paid CAD for MAC and so on. You should also bear in mind that you may need technical assistance one day, so make sure beforehand if the developer offers these services and, last but not least, check up on the range of software features and file formats supported by a CAD package which you consider crucial for your design tasks completion. The CAD software industry is increasingly accommodating architects and designers who work on a Mac or have just moved to Mac. Although there are still more CAD programs for Windows than for Mac, you don’t need to use virtual machines on your Mac any longer, as now you can easily select a CAD for Mac fitting your specific needs. The MacHow2 overview could be quite handy for this purpose and the right place to start with.

iCADMac’s presentation on MacHow2 begins with: “iCADMac markets itself as a cheaper alternative to AutoCAD® for Mac and is user-friendly 2D and 3D CAD software for Macs which writes and reads Autodesk DWG files”, while the full text of the overview is available here.

ProgeCAD 2017 System Requirements (27-Dec-2016)


ProgeCAD 2017 software is based on IntelliCAD 8.1b engine which primarily uses OpenGL graphics technology. We are putting several development and QA efforts to improve the use of OpenGL hardware acceleration technology. OpenGL is a machine language for sending commands like draw and shade directly to a graphics card which can understand OpenGL language and do necessary graphics processing to display entities and objects on the screen.

We have noticed some issues in the past when the user computer has Intel Onboard graphics cards. Also some issues were reported by users with ATI graphics which were sending some incorrect voltages to display monitors. This resulted on display issues and flickering screens. But we had better findings with nVidia graphics cards with updated drivers.

Based on above observations, we recommed to use below system settings to use ProgeCAD 2017 without much hanging and crashing issues:

  • Any CPU (preferably Intel make) with 2GHz or above clock speed. Multi-core processors give better performance as progeCAD 2017 now supports multi-core and multi-thread processing capabilities.
  • 3GB or above RAM
  • 1GB Graphics card (preferably nVidia make) with latest updated drivers from manufacturer website (not the CD supplied by them)

If you use a computer with this configuration, you will get optimum performance of progeCAD 2017.

Feel free to contact us in case if you need any more details.

ProgeCAD 2016 Full Version INDIA Released (01-Mar-2015)


We are glad to announce that ProgeCAD 2016 Full Version INDIA, a 2D/3D DWG/DXF-native CAD platform fully compatible with AutoCAD® and other CAD programs supporting DWG/DXF file formats has been released.

ProgeCAD 2016 Professional, the software for advanced technical drawing acknowledged by the CAD professionals in need of the DWG environment, offers in its new edition DWG compatibility with DWG files compatible with AutoCAD®  2016. Thanks to Cloud technology integrated with ProgeCAD 2016, the level of collaboration and data sharing has been dramatically enhanced. The Cloud integration allows the CAD operator to save and open drawings on a Cloud station enabling access to projects literally from everywhere you want and to anyone you need to design, view and revise. The new version is also showcasing the Dynamic input feature as an alternative way to specify coordinates in the drawing area and a rethink of GUI, inviting Users to assess the interface new graphics, welcoming colours and by far more user-friendly and appealing look-and-feel. The user interface by all means remains familiar containing all the drawing and editing commands and tools of the industry standard CAD software. Then there are the scores of fixes of the former listed bugs and glitches like solid extrusion, zoom, ortho and object snaps just to name a few which are to gratify the User of the 2016 release.

Listed below are the main new features of the ProgeCAD 2016 edition:

Dynamic input, a command line interface at your crosshair to enter commands and coordinates with interactive display of changes; configurable according to your personal or company standards.


Dynamic UCS, to speed up 3D modelling this feature automatically creates a temporary plane to draw on, so you don’t need to constantly specify a new UCS to change views.


Cloud integration. Enhance collaboration and simplify teamwork through an easy reach to your drawings! progeCAD Cloud supports the major cloud services for file sharing and syncing like DropBox, Google Drive and Microsoft One Drive.


Advanced Solid grips, enriched 3D editing through the grips. Select and drag black squares of grips on a 3D model to alter the shape and size of primitive solids. The change of one parameter will maintain the overall solid shape by automatically updating other parameters.


3D Ortho. Classic X,Y Ortho snap modes have been beefed up by orthogonal snap mode for the Z-axis, restricting cursor movement not only to horizontal and vertical, but also in the up and down directions.


Annotative objects, the feature automates the sizing of annotations such as text(single and multi-line), dimensions, hatches, tolerances, blocks and block attributes in multiple viewports with varying scales. The annotative objects are scaled based on the current annotation scale setting and are automatically displayed at the correct size.


Drawing Fields. Save time and improve accuracy using fields to automate the insertion of titleblock text or other annotations in a drawing, especially, when this text occurs repeatedly like it is in case of the current date, the drafter’s initials, the company name and address etc.


ARCTEXT, the command enables text alignment along an existing arc object, very handy when adding complex curved text in drawings.


Breakline, the command line creates a breakline, a polyline including a breakline symbol, by specifying two points and the location of the breakline symbol between them. You can control the relative size and appearance of the breakline symbol and the extension of the polyline beyond the selected start and end points.


PDF/A Print. Create PDF files compliant with the PDF/A Standard often requested by official institutions and public administrations and used for long-term archiving.


Change Space, the CHSPACE command to move or copy entities from Model Space to Paper Space or the other way round very quickly and easily. Entities are also scaled by the viewport scale to come out in the correct size.


Draw order advanced tools, control of draw order of CAD entities through a new toolbar.


Autocomplete command mode. Enhanced command line input assisted by a list or auto completion of commands and system variables as they are being typed.

ProgeCAD 2016 Professional is compatible with the Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 operating systems and also ready for Windows 10. Alongside all the generic CAD standard commands progeCAD provides the tools typical of the advanced DWG environment, such as: ACIS 3D solid modelling, advanced rendering, Dynamic UCS, ICADLib blocks library manager. The design process is further assisted through complete image management, from raster images insertion to their in-place editing. The Professional package also puts at disposal of its Users a series of customization tools, supporting the following programming languages: LISP, DIESEL, IRX (C++ Similar to ARX), SDS (C++ ADS compatible), VBA and COM automation.




Enhancements of ProgeCAD 2016 Full Version INDIA (01-Mar-2015)


This is further to our discussion over phone today. Below is the updated official list of the ProgeCAD 2016 new features. ProgeCAD 2016 is fully compatible with Windows 8.1, ready for Windows 10 and supports DWG versions up to 2016.

ProgeCAD 2016 Full Version INDIA New Features:

ProgeCAD Cloud 
Save and open drawings on Cloud! ProgeCAD Cloud makes it easy for you to reach any of your drawings wherever you are. What is more, it is an optimal way of sharing drawings with your team and customers. ProgeCAD Cloud supports the major cloud services for file sharing and syncing like DropBox, Google Drive and Microsoft One Drive. 

Dynamic Input
Dynamic Input is an alternative way of entering commands  through  a command line interface at your Crosshair. You can input data like the length of a line or the radius of a circle with dynamic visualization of changes relative to mouse movements. When dynamic input is turned on, a tooltip displays dynamically updated information next to the cursor. When a command is in progress, you can specify options and values in the tooltip text box. You can also configure dynamic input to meet your personal or company standards. The feature is to further boost your productivity by making drafting and editing processes way more efficient.

Dynamic UCS
The previous ProgeCAD versions constrained the drafter to constantly change the XY plane to work on a particular face or plane of an object when working with 3D models. You had to specify a new user coordinate system every time you changed views. The new dynamic UCS feature automatically creates a temporary XY plane to draw on. The dynamic UCS feature dramatically speeds up drawing in 3D environment.

Advanced Solid Grips
By dragging grips you can change the shape and size of primitive solids. For example, the change of the height of a cone will maintain the overall cone shape and automatically update the base radius. The Solid Grips feature is introduced  to enrich 3D editing operations.

3D Ortho
Alongside the classic X,Y Ortho snap modes restricting cursor movement to horizontal and vertical, the program now also provides  the Z Ortho mode restricting the cursor to the up and down directions.

Annotative Objects
The feature automates the sizing of annotations such as text, hatch and dimensions in multiple viewports with varying scales. The annotative objects are scaled based on the current annotation scale setting and are automatically displayed at the correct size. The following objects can be annotative, meaning that they can size automatically:    
 - Text (single-line text)    
 - Mtext (multi-line text)    
 - Dimensions    
 - Tolerances    
 - Hatches    
 - Blocks    
 - Block attributes


Drawing Fields
The Field tool automates the insertion of titleblock text or any other annotations in a drawing. If you insert titleblock text in your drawings, you know how it is difficult to keep that text updated and accurate. There are also many people who place drawing numbers or names in several different places in a drawing and that inflicts extra work. With ProgeCAD 2016, you can use fields to automate the insertion of titleblock text or other annotations in a drawing. Especially, if you use this text repeatedly, you can save time and improve accuracy. It is surely the case when you have to do with the current date, the drafter’s initials, the company name and address and so on.

Arc Aligned Text
The ARCTEXT command enables text alignment along an existing arc object. It is a very handy feature to add complex curved text in your drawings.

BREAKLINE Command
The command creates a breakline, a polyline including a breakline symbol, by specifying two points and the location of the breakline symbol between them. You can control the relative size and appearance of the breakline symbol and the extension of the polyline beyond the selected start and end points. 

PDF/A Print
ProgeCAD 2016 can create PDF files compliant with the PDF/A Standard. The PDF/A file format is often a requisite for official institutions and public administrations. The PDF/A file format is an ISO-standardized version of the Portable Document Format (PDF) specialized for the digital preservation of electronic documents. PDF/A differs from PDF by prohibiting features ill-suited to long-term archiving, such as font linking (as opposed to font embedding).

Change Space command
It is quite easy to move entities from Model Space to Paper Space or the other way round with the help of the CHSPACE command. Let’s say that you add some text in your drawing, but then decide that the text should really be in a Notes box in your title block. The CHSPACE command will do that just in a second. The command actually does more than just move or copy selected entities, it also scales entities by the viewport scale so they come out in the correct size.

Draw Order advanced tools
The new toolbar allows an advanced control of draw order of CAD entities making your check on the drawing arrangement more accurate and efficient.

Autocomplete command mode
Entering a command or system variable you are assisted by a list or auto completion of the commands and system variables as they are being typed. A must-have for CAD professionals who are fond of typing commands directly on their keyboards instead of using Menus or Toolbars.




EasyArch 3D an exclusive ProgeCAD parametric tool for Architects (10-Jan-2015)


EasyArch 3D is the fastest and easiest way to create walls, windows, stairs and other 2D/3D parametric objects optimizing the user’s time of completion of architectural projects.To learn how simple it is to work with EasyArch 3D, click here and watch the first video tutorial.

Even users with little experience will be able to design in 3D with the help of such an intuitive tool like EasyArch.
The architectural module allows you to work simultaneously in 2D and 3D, as when inserting parametric objects in the 2D view you obtain a 3D model automatically. Ultimately you get a comprehensive idea of a building, from its exterior model to floorplanning. To add an element to the 3D model of a building, you simply need to indicate the values of its parts sizes; the element modification is just as easy. To learn how to modify the previously inserted parametric objects, click here and watch the second video tutorial.

Alongside EasyArch 3D, progeCAD 2014 Full Version INDIA includes a series of other features which are just the same efficient and highly productive: 3D PDF Export, Hatch trim, PDF to DWG Converter, image management, 3D modeling (ACIS), advanced rendering, tables creation and editing, dynamic blocks editing.

How to ensure command to finish fully in LISP program (03-May-2014)


If the last command is not waiting for the previous command in LISP where some user input was expected from user like text, user one of the below two methods:

(i) By inserting a "pause" option in text command statement. You can use many pause functions one after the other with a single space. But you may not be sure how many times user enters the input.

 
(ii) By writing a while loop to wait for previous command to completely finish using below statement:

      (while (= 1 (getvar "cmdactive")) (command pause))

Unless this statement is there, commands go concurrently from LISP to CAD session.

Are you thinking enough before choosing your CAD Tool (04-Apr-2014)


Greetings from INDIA !

There many CAD users in the world especially based on 2D platforms. Most of the engineering drawings in Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, Architectural etc., are sill on 2D and are going to continue for a long time. The challenge of individual consultants, small business organizations and even big enterprises is the initial price and maintenance costs of CAD softwares.

DWG and DXF are the most widely used file formats for draiwngs for almost three decades. Hence you need a reliable solution which can work "natively (without conversions or transalations)" on DWG and DXF files. There are many CAD tools available in the market to choose from, but you should not forget the following points before choosing:

  • Is the CAD software is affordable initially and in long-term?
  • Are they using 100% genuine code? Make sure they are not breaking/cracking the source codes/IP rights of some other software companies.
  • Is the CAD software coming from a "trusted" country/location where there are some values for Copyrights of others?
  • Are you paying for a cracked/counterfeit software without much knowledge?
  • Is the CAD company in the business for a long time? Are they consistent in their professional associations and maintaining relationship?
  • Are they too aggressive in implementing new features similar to other popular CAD tools? Remember any development will take considerable amount of time if developed from scratch.
  • Do you have a local contact or responsible company to support you in long-term?

You type in search engines for key words like "cad software law suits", "legal battles on cad software" etc.

Hence, we sincerly request you to spend enough time in understanding the software not only in terms of its user interface, performance but also its back end history of development, professional associations etc.

ProgeCAD is asking to regenerate the drawing again and again. How to get rid of this (21-Mar-2014)


If you drawing is having any internal issues it will ask you for regenrate. Use _audit command and "Y" to fix any internal errors. Always it is good practice to regenrate, but it will happen only in inconsistent drawings. However, it is optional to you whether to renerate or not.




How to use FILTER command in ProgeCAD (21-Mar-2014)


Please use QSELECT Command. Your drawing should contain some entities so that this command will work.




How to increase Entity Selection Pickbox Size and Entity Snap Aperture (14-Mar-2014)


Below are the steps to achieve this result in ProgeCAD 2014 Software.

  1. Select any entity inside progeCAD.
  2. In that condition, go to Tools->Drawing Settings -> Coordinate Input Tab
  3. Then you will notice two options at the bottom on Entity Selection Pickbox, increase the size at the pickbox dropdown list.
  4. Similarly you can increase the Entity Snap Aperture, by increasing the Aperture size.

Thank you for choosing ProgeCAD software, a read CAD alternative at very affordable cost.




Dynamic Commands Display on Screen (DYNMODE) (18-Feb-2014)


There is a system variable in ProgeCAD called "DYNMODE". The default value for this is 3, which enables the user to see a dynamically popped window showing the list of filtered commnds on screen. If you wish to stop this display in ProgeCAD, type DYNMODE in command prompt and set the value to "2" instead of "3".

At any point of time, DYNMODE value can be changed back to 3 or vice versa.




Hardware Acceration Setting (18-Feb-2014)


In Tools->Options->Display ........Display Performance, there is a check box for Hardware Acceleration. 

The graphics card acceleration in machines which did not have dedicated graphics cards have to be turned off. Other wise, it may slowdown the performance of progeCAD.

Restart the ProgeCAD after this setting.




Highlights of ProgeCAD 2014 Full Version India (17-Feb-2014)


  • 3D PDF Export. DWG to 3D PDF Export is an exceptional tool for better communication and sharing of your projects among your colleagues and clients. It allows you to obtain an interactive 3D model of a project, displayable and editable with the free 3D PDF Readers.
  • The EasyArch 3D plug-in with several enhancements (unique to ProgeCAD). The EasyArch plug-in, the new version of the automated architectural tool intended to facilitate building and interior design, now works also in 3D. EasyArch 3D comes with a completely revised interface and supports Metric and Imperial measurement systems.
  • The Hatch trim command. ProgeCAD has implemented the long-awaited Hatch trim through the CUT command, which will allow you to create complex fill areas in a few quick steps. You can also trim the hatching suing regular TRIM command.
  • Tables viewing and editing, even those of AUTO-CAD. The table is the best and most widely used way of reporting data in a drawing, in the production of parts lists, bills of materials and so on. Not only can you open DWG files containing tables, but also create new tables directly in the drawing sheet or import (otherwise copy and paste) tables from Excel, Open Office or Libre Office or Kings Office. The table can also be generated automatically from the attributes of the blocks inserted in the drawing.
  • Dynamic Blocks Editing. progeCAD 2014 allows to edit the geometry of dynamic blocks through the Grips.
  • Batch Plot. Layouts taken from one or more drawings can be printed or exported to PDF or DWF using the print settings of individual layouts.

Will truetype fonts slowdown progeCAD (30-Mar-2012)


Two of my friends were complaining to me that progeCAD is very slow and heavy on their computers. They have mixed configurations, from Dual Core to Core-i3. Dual core suffered the most. But I kept on telling them that my staff &amp; I had no problems like this at all. And my Home computer is Dual Core and that too handles progeCAD quite well.

Yesterday I accidentally found out from the drawings sent by my structural engineer - Mr.Narendrakumar who has 15

copies of progeCAD - that his office was now using True Type fonts.  (Earlier they were using only SHX fonts - Roman-S. We, in our office use Roman-S only - we have never used true-type). It was only a small 250 KB file but zooming &amp; panning on the dual core computer was slow and it became heavy on the system. I suspected on the true-type fonts and changed them to Roman-S. Immediately everything was normal and fast.

So if anybody complains to you regarding slow operations in progeCAD, probably it is because of the true-type fonts and you can advise them to change to any SHX fonts and the increase in speed in tremendous - especially with slow computers

Manage the big fonts (30-Mar-2011)


If the font used in the drawing is not present on your PC, install it to see the drawing properly.

If you can not, when you open the drawing with progeCAD, a selection mask for fonts substitutes appears.

Choose the character compatible with the one to replace.

NOTE

To ensure sound management of Bigfonts installed you must change the file Bigfont.ini

Start -> All Programs -> progeCAD 2XXX pro ENG -> Utility ->User Support Folder

this file specifies the language to which the installed font belongs.

SYNOPSIS:

"Name of the font with"; " language reference number"

CODES OF REFERENCE LANGUAGES:

JAPANESE_CODEPAGE_INDEX = 1,

TRADITIONAL_CHINESE_CODEPAGE_INDEX = 2,

KOREAN_CODEPAGE_INDEX = 3,

Check the value of variable "LTSCALE" in the drawing of origin, typing in the command bar: "LTSCALE" then press ENTER

Moving in the drawing of destination and repeat the operation of the preceding paragraph.

If the value of variable in the drawing of destination is different, change typing in the command bar the new value




Copy and Paste does not work. I can not copy the drawing in another drawing (30-Mar-2011)


The reason could be that the drawing from which are copied entities was closed.

-- Make sure the file from which they were copied entities is still open.

-- If it proves closed: open the file of the drawing of origin, select entities to be copied from the Edit menu and choose "Copy" or "Copy with point basis."

-- Open or move in the drawing of destination without closing the drawing of origin, Edit menu and choose Paste "or" Paste in Coordinates original ".

NOTE

The right way to copy is always use the command "Copy" from the Edit menu




Some texts are not displayed properly (30-Mar-2011)


The font used in the drawing is not present on the PC on which progeCAD ® is installed. Font installation is required.

or

Make sure that a font search path is present among those displayed in the menu Tools -> Options -> Paths/File -> Fonts. If it is not, add the character ";" after the queued existing routes and then the font path.

or

Verify that the font replacement is not active. Open with a text editor (e.g.: "Notepad" Windows) the file "icad.fmp" that is situated at Start menu of Windows -> All Programs -> progeCAD 2XXX Pro ENG -> Utility -> User Support Folder.

Example:

The font not properly displayed is "romans". After verifying the installation of the font on your system and therefore the presence of the full path among those displayed in the fonts location (Tools -> Options -> Paths/File -> Fonts), open the file "icad.fmp" and remove the row with the following content: "romans; ic-romans. shx. " This will avoid the replacement of fonts

In this case, the file may be corrupted, so recovery is needed:

-- Start progeCAD ®

-- From the File menu choose "Recover"

- Select the damaged files and confirm

-- After the procedure so that the operations take effect on the drawing it is necessary to save it.

It is recommended that you use the "Save as" command assigning another name to the recovered file to avoid losing in this way any definitive information that was not recovered




I can not open a drawing (30-Mar-2011)


Where:

01. An error message is displayed and the drawing is not opened.

02. An error message is not displayed but the drawing won''t open.

03. It began the loading of the drawing but after the operation is completed or before it progeCAD ® goes wrong.

It is recommended that you use the "Save as" command assigning another name to the recovered file to avoid losing in this way any definitive information that was not recovered.




I inserted an OLE Object and now I cannot open it anymore. What should I do (30-Mar-2011)


This problem arises when external references (Xrif) are used and its re-occurrence can be erratic.

It could happen even after opening and saving the drawing several times.

It relates to all OLE objects that can be inserted (images, Excel Spreadsheets, Word Documents, etc.)

If you have this problem, you just need to delete the file with .vbi extension and the same name as your drawing found in the same directory as the .dwg file.




Text string has wrong fonts even if I have copied them on my computer (30-Mar-2011)


- Check if the font path is specified correctly in progeCAD options. From Tools->Options choose Path/Files tab and insert the correct path for your fonts. You can add more different paths separated

- progeCAD makes an automatic substitution of fonts not available, check file icad.fmp (it is stored into progeCAD main directory), if a font substitution is present for one you have on the disk, delete this row. Font substitution syntax is OriginalFont;OptionalFont




The movement of the cursor on the drawing area is erratic; what can I do (30-Mar-2011)


This is a problem that generally depends on the settings of the FlyOver snap (advanced snaps).

Fly over snaps are a special mode of object Snaps which allow a user of progeCAD to display immediately the relevant points of objects (endpoint, centre, midpoint, intersection, etc.).

For complex drawings (several drawn entities) or if a PC is not very fast, the use of this mode can overload the computer.

Should any problem arise, only one value at the time should be set (for ex. only End, Centre, Intersection, etc.); alternatively this function should be disabled and object Snaps should be used only when necessary by means of the relative toolbar.

To set the Object Snaps, position the cursor over the Esnap writing situated on the right at the bottom of the progeCAD screen and press the mouse''s right button.

From the menu, select ''Settings''

The required snaps should then be selected from the control window.

The FlyOver button can be used for activating the settings of FlyOver Snaps




Can I use AutoCAD fonts (the .SHX files) with progeCAD (30-Mar-2011)


Anyone who owns a regular AutoCAD licence can use, besides the numerous fonts available with progeCAD, also the fonts supplied with AutoCAD.

To do this, open the Tools menu, under Options in Path/File, in Fonts add the fonts'' installation path. For ex.: C:Program FilesAutoCAD R14Fonts. For the 2000 version of AutoCAD the simplex font can be found Support directory. You can add this path too (For ex.: C:AutoCAD LT 2000Fonts;C:AutoCAD LT 2000Support) or copy this font to the folder Fonts of AutoCAD 2000. This guarantees a perfect display of any project using the simplex.shx font.

If when progeCAD was installed on your PC an AutoCAD installation is already present, the font path will be automatically added to the standard ones.

The fonts used for the drawing''s text depend on the text''s style.

With progeCAD it is possible to specify the font to be used in place of other fonts.

Sometimes it may be necessary to use only some types of font for a drawing, or to convert the fonts used into different fonts.

To this purpose the font mapping tables can be used.

If for example drawings are shared with other AutoCAD users, a font mapping table can be used in order to specify the alternative font progeCAD must use for the text originally created in a different font.

The font mapping table (FMP) is an ASCII file containing a font mapping for each line.

Each line contains the basic name of the font file (without the path) followed by a semicolon (;) and the name of the alternative font file with the relative extension (for example .shx or .ttf).

It is for example possible to type the following string in a font mapping table in order to specify that the romanc.shx font file must be substituted by the IC-romans.shx font file.

 

romanc.shx;IC-romans.shx

 

progeCAD comes with a default font mapping table included in the file ICAD.FMP, which is stored in the progeCAD folder.

This file can be modified with any ASCII text editor. It is also possible to specify a different table file in the Options dialogue box or by means of the FONTMAP system variable.

How to specify a font mapping table

1 From the Tools menu choose Options.

2 In the Paths/File list

3 Insert the mapping file name (.fmp) in the ''Font Identification'' box

progeCAD''s original setting uses icad.fmp; if no substitution of font is needed, delete or rename the ICAD.FMP file.

Also remember that...

Is it possible to use AutoCAD''s fonts (the .SHX files) with progeCAD ?

Yes,progeCAD is compatible with AutoCAD fonts file .shx.

To do this, open the "Options" menu and select the "File Paths" tab; then add the fonts'' installation path under "fonts".

For ex: C:Program FilesAutoCAD R14fonts;c:Program FilesAutoCAD R14support

If when progeCAD was installed on your PC an AutoCAD installation is already present, the font path will be automatically added to the standard ones.

If you have original AutoCAD Fonts and want to avoid font substitution of standard ones (Ex. ROMANS.SHX SIMPLEX.SHX)

You also must open the font mapping file, icad.fmp and either delete or comment out the line that makes a font substitution for your AutoCAD font.

For example, suppose you have simplex.shx located at C:ACADFONT and you click on Tools on the menu bar and then Options to identify C:ACADFONT as an alternate font directory. But when you open a drawing that uses simplex.shx, the program continues to substitute ic-simplex.shx.

The solution is to open icad.fmp with a text editing program and either delete the line simplex;ic-simplex.shx or comment it out so that it reads:

;simplex;ic-simplex.shx

Then the next time you launch the program it will no longer substitute ic-simplex.shx for simplex.shx




While using the program, the pointer leaves a trail on the drawing area. How is it possible to eliminate this problem (30-Mar-2011)


To eliminate this problem, it is necessary to reduce the hardware acceleration of the graphic hardware. To do this, in the Screen section of the Windows Control Panel, use the advanced settings relative to the graphic hardware's properties




When I open a drawing made with AutoCAD the text is not properly aligned. How can I solve it (30-Mar-2011)


It is a matter of font. The drawing opened uses an AutoCAD font. Anyone who owns a regular AutoCAD licence can use, besides the numerous fonts available with progeCAD , also the fonts supplied with AutoCAD. Just open the Tools menu. Under Options in Path/File in Fonts, add the fonts'' installation path. For ex.: C:Program FilesAutoCAD R14Fonts. For the 2000 version of AutoCAD the simplex font can be found in Support directory. You can add this path too (For ex.: C:AutoCAD LT 2000Fonts;C:AutoCAD LT 2000Support) or copy this font to the folder Fonts of AutoCAD 2000. This guarantees a perfect display of any project using the simplex.shx font

Customer Reviews (18-Dec-2013)


ProgeCad……..Super Cad
Dec 18, 2013 by Prachi Powale

I am an Architect by profession and have worked extensively on Auto Cad throughout my career of 12 years. While doing a job I started with freelancing and there started my hunt for an affordable CAD software. I got to know about ProgeCad through search engine. I went through many reviews written worldwide and got positive impression about the software. When I saw it’s price in India I was actually shocked. I downloaded the trial version and bought the full version within 2days.
As I started using the software I realized it is truly an affordable alternative for the expensive CAD softwares (I had also contacted suppliers of other options) , and for someone like me who has a small scale requirement it’s existence is a blessing. I have used it for last two weeks and I have produced all sorts of architectural drawings which I require. Working with ProgeCad is almost same as on Auto Cad so there is no need for learning something new. I am very happy with my decision and completely satisfied with the product.
I am extremely thankful to Mr. Murli (CEO of Jytra Engineering Services) and Ms. Keerthana from the same organization for their prompt service and support, which has increased my expectations for future also. I would also like suggest that it’s better to purchase ProgeCad directly from Jytra Engineering Services as I had a very bad experience from the local distributor.
I will recommend ProgeCad to everyone in my professional circle. ………amazing people , great service and a wonderful product……….




Hardware Acceleration Optimized in Latest Patch (28-Nov-2011)


In the latest patch of progeCAD 13.0.18.10, further enhancements made on Graphics display and hardware acceleration option. Below is the confirmation from one of our esteemed customers:
________________
The latest update of progeCAD 2013 has fixed a major display problem (without the need of a dedicated graphics card). Now with the Hardware Acceleration ENABLED (in Tools->Options), zooming, panning, cursor movement etc. are all extra smooth and very comfortable. (previously we have to disable this option).

This is with any 32 bit OS. With 64 bit OS, the hardware acceleration has to be still DISABLED. But even with the hardware acceleration disabled, progeCAD 2013 is now smoother than before on 64 bit OS also.

I once again appreciate the constant efforts of the progeCAD development team in constantly improving the product.

How to add custom menu to ProgeCAD (01-May-2013)


Our suggestion is to load only partial menus to add new toolbars and/or menus.

An example is “menu-easyarch.mnu”. On this menu are defined one pull-down menu (named ‘EasyArch’) and six toolbars.

If you want creare a new menu file and load it automaticaly you must modify icad.lsp adding this simple line :

(command “_menuload” “mymenu.mnu”)

Remember : the menu file must be inserted in the user paths specified in dialog “options” (command “options->paths/files”).

Autocad Equivalent Software (11-Mar-2012)


It is a common question in industry to find out which is the autocad equivalent software. There are many autocad equivalent software available in market which are developed mainly based on Intellicad Technology Consortium (ITC). progeCAD is one of the oldest and highly reliable autocad equivalent software. progecad offers similar interface, commands, file formats, icons and shortcuts as autocad.

Unlike other autocad equivalent software, progeCAD offers very high value to the customers i.e., higher value of the ratio function and cost. There are regular updates available on main web site of progecad which are downloaded automatically and applied in your computer similar to anti-virus software signatures.

progeCAD offers powerful customization capabilities including LISP, VBA, DIESEL etc., as an autocad equivalent software. This facilitates the users to use their existing programs on progeCAD with little or no changes. In addition, progeCAD 2012 release will most likely include the option of ARX programming in it as a new addition.

Most of the customers are facing the challenge of competition and their operatinal cost is a key factor to survive and grow in the market. The monopolistic software in the market demand for high initial price and annual subscription price. This is taking major revenue chunk from companies using CAD software. Autocad equivalent software offers the main advantage of low cost, however there could be a challenge in performance. progeCAD offers high value to CAD users without any significant compromise on performance. Thus progeCAD with Italian technology could be a best autocad equivalent software.

progeCAD Professional software is available in India for a special pricing because of its economic challenges. We offer full-functinoal 30 day trial without any limitations and obligations. Try and believe the software before you buy. Our prices and policies are open to the community unlike other autocad equivalent software. progeCAD offers many purchasing options to its customers like online checkout, demand draft payment, cheque payment, RTGS/NEFT transfer etc.

Another important thing is the availability of softwware. Unlike other autocad and autocad equivalent software, progeCAD license is available within one or two days after realizing the payment. Our process is simple, we will courier the software kit to customers and email the license key along with invoice for quick reach. Thus progeCAD is very successful with over 2,50,000 customer base across the globe amount other autocad equivalent software.




Best AUTOCAD Alternative (25-Dec-2011)


There are many best autocad alternatives available mostly based on Intellicad engine developed by Intellicad Technology Consortium. progeCAD is one of the founding partners of Intellicad technology consortium with continuous development and customization efforts. progeCAD is having similar interface, file formats, icons, commands and shortcuts like other autocad alternatives. ProgeCAD offers high value compared to all other autocad alternatives based on the value. Value is defined as function per unit cost. ProgeCAD is almost identical to classic version of autocad and is reliable for up to 20,000 entities in drawing file. In addition, progeCAD has in-built converters for PDF to DXF and Raster to Vector.

Google Earth integration is another distinct advantage in progeCAD among other autocad alternatives. It is possible to interact with Google Earth when you are connected to internet. Locations can be directly captured from Google Earth and make necessary activities and the changes can be saved to either image or standard DWG/DXF formats. In addition, progeCAD comes with in-built converters for PDF to DXF and Raster to Vector. It also supports layered PDF back and forth from progeCAD. These are few more distinguishing factors of progeCAD compared to either autocad or autocad alternatives. progeCAD also permits to export drawing files to any previous versions of autocad as well as JPEG or PDF file formats making its use universal.

progeCAD is available at very affordable price in India. The full professional version price of progeCAD is lower than the standard or 2D version of either autocad or any other autocad alternatives. It is our aim to make the professional software available to individuals as well as corporate at very affordable price without draining their budget. Further, we offer e-mail support for a very low annual fee so that they will get continuous product support and upgrades. progeCAD update patches are available over internet and will be downloaded and installed automatically without any user intervention. All the user need to do is to enable the automatic updates option which will be the default setting while installing the software. Thus, progeCAD permits ease of installation, maintenance and support better than other autocad alternatives. It is the choice of user whether to upgrade to future versions or not, they will not be threatened by progeCAD team for annual subscriptions. We don’t believe in threatening any individual or existing customers for sale. Winning the customer satisfaction and confidence is our main motto by offering them value added products and services.

Autocad alternatives offer similar functionalities, interface, commands, icons, short cut keys and even the customization capabilities like autocad. However, they are not as capable as autocad in terms of performance especially for larger drawings with more than 20,000 entities. Just think about comparing between Microsoft Office and Open Office in terms of performance. Being commercial and profit making Organizations, Microsoft and Autodesk invest heavily on software development, research and testing. However, Intellicad Technology Consortium is a non-profit organization and its efforts are not good as Autodesk. Hence, it is a bet between price and performance. If price is not a constraint, then obvious choice would be Autocad but not autocad alternatives.

progeCAD is available in India for a special discounted price compared to any other country in the World. Jytra Engineering Services is the All India Distributor of progeCAD with dedicated Dealer network across the country. progeCAD is available in special box packed version along with genuine license certificate and legal invoice with VAT or CST paid to the Government. Focus on your business without being the victim of counterfeit software and thus the threats from CAD software development companies. progeCAD full-version can be downloaded from our website www.progecadindia.com and installed in any computer. 30-day full functional trial allows you to test the product thoroughly being making a decision.

License code will be delivered via email to the customer after realizing the payment. Customers are advised to buy the software from local Dealers in order to get better product support.

All autocad alternatives may not offer various licensing options to the end users. progeCAD offers various options like node locked license, NLM (Network License Manager) License, License check-out and take away option, corporate one site option for a lump sum price, corporate one country option for a lump sum price without any restriction on the usage of number of licenses. All these options are available at a lower price compared to either autocad or other autocad alternatives.

Constant Research and Development efforts are being made by progeCAD srl, Italy to develop the progeCAD further based on Intellicad engine. New versions will be launched every year with several enhancements. No gimmicks and tricks like releasing 2013 version early in 2012 to confuse the customers like other software developers.

Discovery Channel Telescope designed with progeCAD (04-Feb-2014)


Organization Background

Lowell Observatory, founded in 1894, is the largest private, non-profit astronomical research institution in the United States.

 

Entry to LowellLowell also hosts a variety of innovative educational and visitor outreach programs to share the wonders of astronomy and science with the public.

 

The Discovery Channel Telescope (DCT) is a project of Lowell Observatory and Discovery Communications Inc. to design, construct, and commission a state-of-the-art, 4.3 meter (14 ft) research class telescope.

 

2.5 meter optical mirror moved to siteValued at $44 million, the DCT will significantly advance Lowell’s research capabilities to help expand our understanding of the universe.

Just as important, the partnership with Discovery Communications, whose current operations include 29 global networks in over 170 countries, will bring the fascinating world of astronomical science and education to more than 1.6 billion people every day.

 

The DCT is situated at an elevation of 7,800 feet atop an ancient cinder cone located approximately 40 miles southeast of Flagstaff, Arizona at a site called Happy Jack. Exceptionally dark skies, high altitude, low humidity, and prevailing southwest winds at the site make it an ideal location for the telescope. Construction of the DCT began in 2005 with completion and early science operations expected in 2012.

 

Finally progeSOFT’s proven commitment to supporting educational institutions such as Lowell Observatory yields additional value and confidence in our choice of progeCAD.

 

progeCAD render of telescope mountBusiness Need

At this phase of the project, DCT engineers, technicians, and contractors are engaged in integration and testing of the telescope mount and active optics system, the computer-controlled mechanism that precisely maintains the position and shape of the primary and secondary mirrors during active observing.

 

Development of the intricate electro-mechanical interfaces among these and other major DCT subsystems is also in progress, requiring careful design and fabrication. Such detailed design work demands the use of powerful and reliable CAD software tools. The DCT engineering team recognized the need for a cost-effective solution to facilitate development of this aspect of the project.

 

Mount will precisely target stars

 

 

Solution

 

After researching various CAD software options with respect to performance, price, custom features, and technical support, progeCAD 2010 Professional was the obvious choice.

DCT engineering and technical staff confirms that progeCAD Professional delivers highly reliable and robust performance thus improving the ease and speed of design work.

progeCAD United States, an Authorized Distributor of progeSOFT products, has been working with the observatory since 2005 to deliver continual upgrades ensuring the Discovery Channel Telescope designers had the most current progeCAD technology.

progeCAD Professional has also shown to be readily compatible with other software programs in use by the DCT project team including SolidWorks and AutoCAD. Finally, progeSOFT’s proven commitment to supporting educational institutions such as Lowell Observatory yields additional value and confidence in our choice of progeCAD.

Future

Lowell Observatory expects to continue using progeCAD Professional to support long term operations of the Discovery Channel Telescope. New instrumentation, system modifications, and electro-mechanical improvements are all likely to be developed in part via progeSOFT product solutions.

ProgeCAD Software offer for India (04-Feb-2014)


Jytra Engineering Services has become the Sole Distributor of progeCAD Software in India. We sincerely thank M/s.progeSOFT, Italy for accepting our request to offer progeCAD professional software at a lower price as a promotional offer. The economic conditions of small scale industries in India cannot afford for highly expensive CAD software. Most of the cases they adopt counterfeit software which is very risky and illegal in their business operations. Further, they cannot send the files created in the crack versions to their customers. To plug this gap, we came up with a special price offer for Indian customers so that they can proudly own and use genuine software licenses.
