progeCAD 2017: The AutoCAD Perpetual License Alternative
AutoCAD replacement, "progeCAD", offers updated interface and commands with perpetual license still at a fraction of the cost of AutoCAD.
By: CADDIT CAD Software
progeCAD 2017 represents the most exciting release of progeCAD to date, offering one fell swoop of general improvements, including: NATIVE 64-bit version with theoretical memory limit of 16-terabytes for x64 PC architecture, Windows tuning model (8 terabytes "User" and 8 terabytes "Kernel"). This means ability to edit vastly larger DWG drawing files than under the previous 32-bit architecture. progeCAD no longer supports 32-bit as of 2017 release. New RIBBON-BASED INTERFACE option. Users now have the choice between ribbon, toolbar, both or neither. Updated status bar, with icons and new features. Improved memory management and hardware graphics acceleration (OpenGL), again increasing stability and drawing speed. Multi-core support for opening and regenerating files, which provides 1.5 to 3 times performance improvement on multi-core computers (er.. well, we hope that is most of us by now..) Other platform improvements include: Support for "workspaces"
progeCAD 2017 also delivers DOZENS of new commands and variables to be used. At this point these new functions are to include: BCOUNT, XOPEN, XPLODE, POLYSOLID, POINTCLOUDATTACH, SETBYLAYER, PRINTTRANSPARENCY, TABLESTYLE, Layer-walking and many more. Significant changes and improvements have also been made on QSELECT, PURGE, LOFT, CUSTOMIZE, AUTOCOMPLETE and many others.
Users of previous versions of progeCAD, AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT and similar software products are encouraged to download the free progeCAD trial version from www.caddit.net, which will run full-feature and obligation free for 30 days from CADDIT.net. progeCAD includes critical features like AutoCAD-like drawing commands for DWG file reading and writing, PDF printing and conversion back to CAD, iCADlib block library, dynamic block and cursor and fast OpenGL graphics engine. Collectively packaged at a price still under AUD$600 with USB and floating network license options, progeCAD 2016 delivers unprecedented value. These features have all been now tested and upgraded to work with Windows 10.
A completely new 30-day trial of progeCAD 2017 can now be immediately downloaded from https://www.caddit.net/
