it, snap to it, and use the RVTPANE command to open the Categories pane for visibility control.
Toolpalettes for Blocks, Hatches and frequently used Commands
Use the tool palettes to
organize blocks, hatches, and custom tools in a tabbed window. Easily customizable by Drag &
Drop. Options and settings are accessible from shortcut menus.
Block Editor (_BEDIT)
The Block Editor offers a special authoring area to enable free drawing
and editing of blocks geometry.

The control of updated or missing xrefs. progeCAD displays a baloon when an XREF
(External Reference) linked to the active drawing is modified.
The setting of conversion modes for STEP/IGES files (Quick Monocrome,
With Color, Import as Surfaces).
Construction Line Command
A construction line is a special type of the infinite line that is
typically used when quick drafting techniques are required.
Similar to the infinite line, the construction line is a line through a given point, oriented at a
specified angle in the three-dimensional space and extending to infinity in both directions.
Property Panel Tree
The new selection control to view selected entities in a tree list allowing
Properties local editing ( highlighting/modifications based on the tree selection).
Custom Folders preset

PDF to DWG conversion
progeCAD helps you convert your PDF files to editable DWG files quickly and easily. The tool generates and optimizes vector entities
such as lines, polylines, splines, hatches, circles, arcs and text strings; offers intelligent TrueType texts and line width recognition; retains
colors in the DWG/DXF file. It is compatible with Layered PDF and preserves the same Layers scheme existing in the PDF when converting PDF to
DWG. The PDF to CAD feature allows to save time by easily transferring projects, drawings, parts of existing in vectorial PDFs catalogues and
manuals to CAD drawings to use them as native DWG files. It supports all versions of Adobe PDF file.

Surveying, Gis And Civil Features
Georeferencing is the process of scaling, rotating, translating and deskewing the image to match a particular size and position.
Special for GIS.
ECW is an open standard wavelet compression image format developed by Earth Resource Mapping. The file format is optimized for aerial
and satellite imagery, and efficiently compresses very large images with fine, alternating contrast. This is a lossy compression format.
MrSID (.sid), which is an acronym of Multiresolution Seamless Image, is a file format developed and patented by LizardTech for
encoding of georeferenced raster graphics such as orthophotos. The MrSID (.sid) format is supported in major GIS applications such as Autodesk,
Bentley Systems, CARIS, ENVI, ERDAS, ESRI, Intergraph, MapInfo and QGIS.
Jpeg 2000 support
Jpeg 2000 is a wavelet-based image compression standard. It was created by the Joint Photographic Experts Group committee in the year
2000 with the intention of superseding their original discrete cosine transform-based JPEG standard.
Import SHAPE (ESRI) files with geometry and its attributes into DWG drawings. Specific commands allow geometry insertion, colors and
layers management, data dynamic control.
3D and 2D Civil Features
Fast triangulation of point clouds - Creation of TIN surfaces from points within point cloud scan files or land survey collected
points. AUTOSEZ command can be applied to these surfaces.
AUTOSEZ - The tool for the automatic creation of surface profiles to show surface elevations along a horizontal alignment to
represent, for example, road edges or ditches (Topographic Sections)
SLOPE - The tool for an easy creation of terrain slope lines (ticks) between two edges or for a conversion of polylines into slope-
Easyarch 3D - The Architectural 2D/3D Plugin
The automated building tool for architects designed to increase productivity in house and interior design and remodeling.
EasyArch allows to:
Manage and insert parametric blocks from the additional menus
Create and edit tables of elements, rooms, spaces
Publish (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. Speed up the
print process when necessary to print or export several different drawings or drawings with several different layouts.
Perspective Image Correction
Thanks to this plugin, photos insertion is easy and intuitive, with the ability to correct their perspective through the multi-point system.

This is an ideal product for architects, engineers and for all those designers who need to view their own drawings in a photorealistic
progeCAD professional includes for free the advanced Artisan Renderer Engine based on the ray-tracing algorithm. It allows you to quickly create
a photorealistic image of your model using a wide range of pre-set materials and lighting setups combined with the ability to create custom
lights and realistic materials. It has the following characteristics:
Photorealistic rendering with light and shade, reflection and transparency effects
Materials like wood with grain, stone, plastic, metal, bricks (customizable, different shades)
The finishing can be personalized with effects of reflection or transparency

Archives of own libraries of materials, lights and backgrounds.
Gradient Hatch Support
Fleshing out a drawing on progeCAD can give it additional impact during presentations, and the addition of color gradients to surfaces to produce
a more "realistic" appearance is a great way to do so. Gradients can be displayed and created through a user-friendly interface. Improved Hatch
The feature automates the sizing of annotations such as text, hatch and dimensions in multiple viewports with varying scales.
A point cloud is a collection of points acquired using 3D laser scanners or other special technologies to create 3D representations of existing
Point cloud files help the design process by providing real-world context where you can recreate the referenced objects. Once a point cloud is
inserted to a drawing, you can use it as a guideline for the drawing, change its visualization, or apply a color to distinguish different
Along with the standard file formats, with progeCAD you can import Point Cloud formats such as ReCap .rcs, .rcp, XYZ, PLY
3D PDF Export
Create the Adobe PDF standard with your dynamic 3D content inside.
3D PDF allows to communicate to all the globe and share your data with anyone in an easy and innovative way. Smart collaboration with your
draftsmen and designers as well as users who do not deal with CAD software.
3D PDF can be visualized with the free Adobe® Reader®/Acrobat Reader DC software.
