progesoft iCADMac 2018

progeCAD is the leader in low cost 2D/3D CAD technology. At progeCAD we're dedicated to providing engineers, designers and other creative professionals with the tools they need to design the world's greatest products.

The first Library of graphic symbols for a CAD system, was delivered at the end of 1985 to ABB Italy. For a long time, progeCAD worked on the development of vertical applications for the industrial environment.

In 1999 progeCAD was one of the founding members of ITC (IntelliCAD Technology Consortium). The IntelliCAD Technology Consortium is an organization of CAD software developers, who develop applications for IntelliCAD, a Computer-aided design engine. The IntelliCAD engine, which is based on the DWGdirect library from the Open Design Alliance reads and writes the ".dwg" data format – a widely used file format for storing both graphic and textual information of CAD-related software applications.

Based on the IntelliCAD engine, progeCAD developed its high end CAD solution. Before progeCAD, the industry was starved for a comprehensive software package for the deploy of 2D/3D drawings based on industrial standard for a fair price. progeCAD met that need.

Based on our communications expertise, we serve our customers' needs through products, services and solutions that deliver long-term benefits and meet the highest standards of quality, reliability and flexibility. We reinforce our customers' competitive strength through integrated solutions.

iCADMac Features

DWG 2018 Compatibility
The native format for iCADMac® is DWG, which offers an unrivalled compatibility with AutoCAD® without need for file conversion and no risk for data loss. Moreover, iCADMac enables you to export your drawing files in most of the previous AutoCAD® DWG and DXF versions. It supports AutoCAD® DWG/DXF from version 2.5 through 2018.

PDF Import
Thanks to the our PDF2DWG module, you can create a DWG file by importing a PDF vector file and use it as a standard iCADMac drawing. PDF files, having been edited on iPAD, can be imported and converted to the DWG format for iCADMac. This can be a useful, time saving tool by importing PDF component drawings that you can readily find on the Internet.

PDF Export
The PDF format is a comfortable format for publication of your documents that can be read through Acrobat Reader. Acrobat Reader is a free tool present on the majority of PCs and freely available for download on the Internet. iCADMac creates PDF files corresponding to the view chosen for printing. Your drawings can be delivered to customers and suppliers using this easy and reliable format.

3D PDF Export - Click for a 3DPDF sample
Convert 3D drawings into rich interactive 3D PDF documents, where users can rotate and zoom in to reveal hidden detail in a standard technical PDF report. 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. iCADMac is the only DWG CAD for Mac supporting this feature.

Design Center
Increase your productivity by very easily sharing content between files. You may browse your computer or network to find useful contents to use in your drawing like blocks, reference drawings or images, layers, sheets, styles…

PDF and DGN Underlays
PDF and DGN files can be attached as an underlay to a drawing file and used as a background for your drawings. If you have a PDF image that you want to reference as you draw, you an attach it as an underlay, this is similar to attaching an xref.

Gradient Hatch
iCADMac can create gradient hatches by specifying a hatch that uses a smooth transition between two colours or between a lighter and darker shade of the same colour. The gradient hatch function creates drawings for presentations directly in iCADMac without any additional specific software. You can also display drawings containing gradient hatches created in AutoCAD

A table is a collection of cells that can contain data of various kinds, from notes to blocks. Tables can be used for bills of materials, component lists, revisions and text to organize and manage information within your drawings. In a table the data is organized into lines and columns. Tables can be created and customized by the user who can choose their view by defining a style that can be applied to the tables.

Image insertion and clip
You can insert, edit and clip Raster images (scanned images, photos, images from the Internet, etc.). in a drawing. iCADMac also allows displaying and inserting images in jpeg, bmp, gif, and png formats as well as images with polygona clip areas.

Polygonal Viewports
In layout you can create rectangular, polygonal and irregular shapes Viewports . This feature offers maximum flexibility when creating printing layouts.

Xref - External references
XREFs, or external references, are .dwg drawing files referenced in the current drawing. In the case that an XREF is attached to the current drawing, any modification made to the XREF drawing is displayed when the XREF is reloaded, or the drawing is opened again. A drawing can be attached as an XREF to multiple drawings, as well as multiple drawings can be attached as an XREF to the same drawing. XREFs can be inserted in either model or paper space, they can be rotated, scaled or positioned at any given coordinates as well as their layers being visible or invisible.

Standard Interface
iCADMac offers a working environment featuring standard CAD menus and toolbars in combination with a recognizable Mac OS X application user interface.

Property Bar
The Property bar enables you to access all entity characteristics in a drawing. Through the simple and intuitive interface you can edit such entity properties as colour, line type, layer, referenced points, URL etc.

Additional Hatches
Apart from the hatches normally available in a CAD program, you can find over 300 additional hatch patterns for tiles, walls, floors, panels, ground, bricks, glass, wood etc.

Pack and Go
Creates a package containing the current drawing and its dependent files such as References, referenced images, referenced PDF files, font files, font mapping files, PrintStyle files, and Print Configuration files.

PDF and DGN Underlay
The PDF format is widely used everywhere. If you receive a PDF file that you want to reference as you draw, you can attach it as an underlay and looks it trasparent over the drawing entities.

iCADMac proposes the basic rendering module with multiple Lights and Shadow support. The advanced Ray-tracing module with materials, reflection, transparency and smooth shadows will be available soon as an option module.

Multiline objects can consist up to 16 parallel lines, called “elements”. Multilines allow quick creation of walls, roads, insulation etc. iCADMac offers a complete configuration mask specially designed to define various multiline styles.

Revision clouds are used in drawings to indicate that certain areas require or contain revisions. You can create rectangular, elliptical and freehand Clouds to accentuate drawing areas. You can adjust the radius of the sequential arcs of Clouds.

iPad™, iPhone®, and iPod touch® Support
DWG drawings can be transferred to iPAD (iPod, iPhone) with the free appliactin AutoCAD 360. The drawings can be sent to the mobile device through email and can be modified with annotations. Then is possible to send back to iCADMac using AutoCAD 360

ACIS® Solids
iCADMac reads and writes 3D solid objects with the ACIS Solid Modeling libraries (the same as AutoCAD®) Essential for those who deal with Industrial Design, Dies, complex architectural elements and generally for any application in which creating complex three-dimensional shapes quickly and easily. ACIS solids are available thanks to an agreement signed with Spatial, the supplier of technology for solid modelling to many of the most important CAD software companies in the world. iCADMac has implemented complete management of ACIS solids including viewing, printing, creating and editing. Exchange of CAD project data with other CAD software which uses ACIS Solids (such as AutoCAD®) is therefore a simple process! Creating complex three-dimensional shapes by using solid models is made easier in comparison with the more traditional techniques.

iCADLib - Advanced Blocks Libraries
More than 22.000 Blocks are ready to be used for Construction, Architectural, Furnishing, 3D Furnishing, Mechanics, Electrical, Electronics, Steel profiles and many others industries. Thanks to the Blocks Library Management module it is quick and easy to find a symbol you need. iCADLib can be also used to manage libraries of symbols or personal that already exist.

iCADLib includes the access to Traceparts for progeCAD: Advanced integration with the progeCAD's Traceparts web portal for easy guided usage of more than 100 millions of blocks. Directly guided block insertion from the web to your drawings just in a snap.

Drawing Fields
Add Fields to annotations. Use Fields to update visible information such as modification date, drawing name, and author.For example, with Fields you can keep text in title blocks accurate.Fields are updated automatically when you save, print, or rebuild drawings.
