    UPGRADE IntelliCAD Software

     With AutoCAD® 2017 DWG, Windows 10 & Full PDF support.

    progeCAD advanced IntelliCAD software offers reliable AutoCAD & AutoCAD LT compatible design at a fraction of Autodesk prices. progeCAD more closely emulates the AutoCAD-like interface and commands, including IntelliCAD AutoLISP® interpreter command line, similar basic editing commands and robust Autodesk DWG CAD file compatibility. This means basic IntelliCAD legally works like & writes DWG files compatible with AutoCAD, when AutoCAD itself becomes too expensive for the small to medium business (SMB). Indeed, larger companies elect to have both products together (i.e. "central" AutoCAD workstations supported by a group of affordable IntelliCAD systems). progeCAD adds important features, stability patches and advanced support to the basic IntelliCAD product - greatly extending IntelliCAD's usefulness in medium-heavy project environments.

    The IntelliCAD Software History...

    Note: more information about IntelliCAD history and the ITC can be found on Wikipedia HERE.

    Many people equate CAD software directly to AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT. A large share of the general public is still totally unaware that there are many other CAD programs, even many other *types* of CAD, as well as different CAD file formats and standards. The first commercial CAD systems required specialized hardware and extensive administrative overhead to keep in operation. In 1982, a team of 15 released the first successful stand-alone CAD that worked on commodity PC hardware. It was based on a previous work by Mike Riddle called MicroCAD, and was originally planned to assist with "desktop automation" tasks. This new concept was called AutoCAD, and it first sold for $1000 USD.

    AutoCAD introduced other concepts to the general public: the first open CAD exchange format specification. This Data eXchange Format, or DXF, soon became a defacto 2D CAD standard, supported by virtually all platforms. This move ironically helped assure AutoCAD's place as a market leader. The DXF specification was kept basic, only allowing translation of geometry necessary to communicate with downstream applications. Ownership of AutoCAD was still required to read the binary DWG data which stored the complete drawing, including copious attributes and data.

    In 1997, Visio Corporation (now owned by Microsoft) purchased the Boomerang / Phoenix project, a developing alternative to the obviously overly-priced AutoCAD. This software would offer a similar "look and feel", support AutoCAD commands and AutoLISP scripts, and - most importantly - reliably read and write AutoCAD DWG files as it's native file format. The software was called IntelliCAD.

    When Microsoft purchased VISIO, it declined to enter into the DWG drafting software market. Instead, the IntelliCAD code base was to be further developed by the IntelliCAD Technology Consortium, or ITC. ITC members are permitted to use the developed code base in their own commercial end-user products, including DWG converters and viewers. IntelliCAD is legal software, protected by a 1997 FTC decision (and others) in response to Autodesk's near-monopoly market share in some industries.

    progeSOFT is based by beautiful Lake Como, Italy, and an ITC executive member of the with many years of advanced CAD development experience. progeCAD IntelliCAD Professional exclusively offers flexible choice of license configurations, including single stand-alone license, floating NLM network, travelling USB, corporate, office and free educational. Together with qualified local and international support teams, progeCAD offers the complete winning combination at a very reasonable price.
