ProgeSOFT.US Pledges ProgeCAD Software for Hurricane Relief

November 23rd, 2005 Comments off

Portland, OR, USA – November 22, 2005

ProgeSOFT.US (www.progesoft.us), in cooperation with ProgeSOFT sas, Como, Italy, is coordinating the donation of ProgeCAD 2006 Professional CAD software applications for the rebuilding of hurricane stricken areas in the United States.

Hurricane Katrina has caused some 25 billion dollars in damage, and Wilma, over 10 billion dollars, and these estimates are sure to rise. The widespread destruction in the affected areas has caused a need for CAD design software to help rebuild the infrastructure.

ProgeCAD 2006 Professional, the latest IntelliCAD software from ProgeSOFT, includes a library manager for discipline specific symbols, ACIS solid modeling, raster image support, rendering, and a unique set of tools that only ProgeSOFT offers. ProgeCAD software supports the DWG design file format, from version 2.6 through 2006, plus support for AutoCAD® menus, scripts, blocks, and AutoLISP®.

“Though the immediate need for assistance has past, the rebuilding of the affected areas will continue for the foreseeable future. To help with that effort, we felt ProgeCAD software would be extremely relevant. Builders and architects in the affected areas can use the software to design their new infrastructure while rebuilding their businesses.” said Scott Hucke, President, ProgeSOFT.US.

Victims of both Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Wilma may apply for free copies of ProgeCAD 2006 Professional through our website at www.progesoft.us.

ProgeCAD 2006 – Using prompt boxes

November 23rd, 2005 Comments off

ProgeCAD commands often provide several options. These options appear in the status bar or command bar and also in a prompt box (called a context menu in Autodesk AutoCAD) initially displayed in the upper right corner of the screen.
You can move the prompt box by dragging it; future prompt boxes will appear where you last placed it. The options appear as menu selections. Choose the appropriate option by selecting it in the prompt box. To close a prompt box, click the Close box.

The prompt box is displayed by default. To turn off the display of prompt boxes, choose Tools > Options, click the Display tab, and then click the Display Prompt Boxes check box to clear it.

Translate, Then Repair

November 18th, 2005 Comments off

One of the dirty secrets in CAD is that translation can be difficult and inaccurate, expecially in 3D. Thus, third-parties have sprung up to provide repair tools, or as TransMagic describes its latest release of translation software, “advanced CAD file repair tools which provide more robust solid to solid translation of 3D CAD data.”

Some of the fixes that need to be done to translated 3D models include finding and patching missing surfaces and covering holes in solid models. Of course, translation companies are like anti-virus companies: the worse the situtation for users, the better the sitation for them.

‘Course, that applies to me too: if CAD were perfect, I’d be out of a job. And there wouldn’t be version 1.01.

ProgeCAD 2006 – Displaying and hiding toolbars

November 18th, 2005 Comments off

When you start ProgeCAD the first time, the Standard, Draw, Modify, Draw Order, Style and Entity Properties toolbars are displayed. ProgeCAD provides about a dozen toolbars, which you can customize by adding and deleting tools. You can also move and resize toolbars, and you can create new toolbars.
You can use a shortcut menu to display or hide toolbars.
You can also choose whether toolbars are displayed large or small and in color. You can choose to display or hide ToolTips, which provide descriptions of tools that display when you pause the cursor over them.
Go to Tools > Customize > Toolbar to make these selections. Toolbars are either docked or floating. A floating toolbar has a title bar and a Close box, can be located anywhere on the screen, and can be resized. A docked toolbar does not display a title or Close box, cannot be resized, and is attached along one of the edges of the drawing window.

  • To dock a toolbar, drag it to the perimeter of your
     drawing; to undock it, drag it away from the perimeter.
  • To position a toolbar in a docking area without docking
     it, press Ctrl while you drag it.
  • To move a toolbar, drag it to a new location.
  • To resize a toolbar, move your cursor to the edge until
     it changes to a resize arrow, and then drag.

To choose which toolbars to display

1 Right-click anywhere on a docked toolbar or the status bar
   to display the toolbar shortcut menu.
2 Select the toolbars you want displayed.
3 If the toolbar does not appear in the shortcut menu,
   choose Toolbars.
4 In the Select Toolbars dialog box, choose the toolbars
   you want displayed, and then click OK.

If you select one or more entities and then right-click, the program displays a shortcut menu from which you can choose a command to modify the selected entities.
To display a shortcut menu from which you can choose an entity snap, press and hold down the Shift key, and then right-click anywhere within the drawing window.

IntelliCAD: The Un-AutoCAD

November 15th, 2005 Comments off

IntelliCAD: The Un-AutoCAD examines the current and future state of the IntelliCAD Technical Consortium, its members, and its software. 74 pages

The organization behind the IntelliCAD software is unique in the computer-aided design industry, consisting of a consortium to update the source code and provide some marketing support, and members who sell the software on a nonexclusive basis. The common goal is to create something that is DWG compatible named IntelliCAD.

This research paper examines this unique arrangement for a software product conflicting by divergent goals:

1. To be compatible with AutoCAD, yet be different from AutoCAD.
2. To be a single source of IntelliCAD, yet provide differentiated products based on IntelliCAD.

Hence: IntelliCAD, the un-AutoCAD.
