An Easy Replacement for AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT

progeCAD 2018 Professional Digital Delivery is a general-purpose 2D/3D DWG/DXF-native CAD, the proven low-cost replacement forAutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. progeCAD 2018 Professional reads and writes AutoCAD DWG drawing files vv. 2.5 - 2017. The progeCAD 2018 Professional software package is a fine solution for general technical drafting offering the standard CAD features as well as a series of handy tools facilitating daily design routines.

Key Features and Benefits

High compatibility with AutoCAD
progeCAD 2018 Professional's original format is DWG. This ensures unrivaled compatibility with without any need for file conversion or any danger of information loss (support for DWG up to 2017). progeCAD 2018 Professional lets you export drawing files to any previous AutoCAD versions, both in DWG and DXF file formats.
Windows RIBBON-style user interface
Now progeCAD 2018 Professional supports both common Menu interfaces: the Classic one based on the standard toolbar and the new up-to-date Ribbon-based menu as of Microsoft Office or AutoCAD. Ribbons use tabs to expose different sets of controls, eliminating the need for many parallel toolbars. Customizable through CUI Files.
64 Bit and Multicore support
progeCAD 2018 Professional evolves to offer native 64-bit and multi-core support with improved memory management. Handling of large drawing files gets much more efficient on 64-bit machines, while performance when opening or regenerating progeCAD drawing files has been enhanced by 1.5 – 3 times on multi- core computers.
PointCloud Import
Import and display PCG or ISD data files from 3D laser scanners. Point Clouds can serve a wide range of purposes, including creation of 3D CAD models out of manufactured products, for metrology/quality inspection, and in a multitude of visualization, animation, rendering and mass customization applications.
Table Styles
To create and easily format Tables in drawings. A table style enables to specify different cell styles for each row allowing to display different justification and appearance for text and gridlines. Tables are formatted according to their styles and you can apply to individual cells, rows,or columns your formatting overriding the formatting that comes from the table style.
