Surveying, Gis And Civil Features

Image Georeferencing
Georeferencing is the process of scaling, rotating, translating and deskewing the image to match a particular size and position. Special for GIS.
ECW support
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 support
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- style polylines.

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:
  • Create walls
  • Edit walls (delete, rotate, MOVE, copy, make/cap holes etc.)

Thanks to this plugin, photos insertion is easy and intuitive, with the ability to correct their perspective through the multi-point system.

Advanced Render: Artisan

This is an ideal product for architects, engineers and for all those designers who need to view their own drawings in a photorealistic visualization. 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

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 Form.

Annotative Objects

The feature automates the sizing of annotations such as text, hatch and dimensions in multiple viewports with varying scales.

Point Clouds

A point cloud is a collection of points acquired using 3D laser scanners or other special technologies to create 3D representations of existing structures. 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 features. Along with the standard file formats, with progeCAD you can import Point Cloud formats such as ReCap .rcs, .rcp, XYZ, PLY and LAS.

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.

Superhatch Command

Create hatch patterns from images, blocks, external references ( xrefs ) and wipeouts. Superhatch is an express tools function that lets you quickly hatch with your own pattern, no programming or creation of pat files needed. progeCAD's hatch with image capability is a part of the Superhatch function.

Customer Reviews

Great Program

I have used Autocad for years, now that I'm retired I wanted an affordable work a like program and ProgeCad fulfills my needs. One of my favorite commands in Autocad was the Align command and ProgeCad has that command and it works identical. I also like the customer service provide by ProgeCad. I plan to upgrade the program every couple of years because it is so affordable. All my drawings are in 2-D and Isometric so I don't need an over priced bloated program with features I never use anyway. ProgeCad does everything I need.

progeCAD 2013 does it all.

I started using progeCAD Professional 2009. It has made many improvements over the past few years. I have completed hundreds of projects in 2D and 3D for architects, engineers, land surveyors, homeowners, and others. I am now using the 2013 version. In my experience progeCAD has been a great CAD program for the price.

ArrowCAD Design Services

progeCAD IntelliCAD Pro

Very similar to older versions of AutoCAD (6+ years old), but still not where I'd hoped. This was a necessary (and relatively inexpensive) purchase to have a legitimate license that produces *.dwg files. There's just enough differences that I need to go through the manual in depth (more than I expected) and fine tune it for printing as well as other areas. Was hoping, due to good reviews, that I could "hit the ground running" without too many configuration issues. I ended up having to push out my deadlines as a result. I'm still fine tuning it, but hope that once that's done, I will increase my production time over my first job. I'll revisit this review when I figure it all out.
