The new way of CAD!
progeCAD 2010 is the 2D/3D, native
DWG format, professional CAD solution from
progeSOFT. See below the list of
some of the main key features available.
High compatibility with
progeCAD’s original format is DWG. This
ensures unrivaled compatibility with AutoCAD® without any need
for file conversion or any danger of information loss. (Support for DWG up
progeCAD lets you export drawing files to any previous AutoCAD versions,
both in DWG and DXF format.
Total integration in the Windows®
progeCAD’s exceptional efficiency is
guaranteed by its total integration in the Microsoft Windows® environment.
Improved GUI *
More comfortable and standard graphic
interface, New Toolbars 'AutoCAD® like' feeling. New Hatch
and Plot forms
PDF format Printing/Export
The PDF format is extremely convenient for
the publication of your documents, which can then be read with ADOBE ACROBAT
Acrobat Reader is a free product; many PC have it already installed,
alternatively it can be downloaded from the Internet.
However, in order to produce PDF files a specific product such as ADOBE
ACROBAT is usually needed and this can cost up to a few hundred Euro.
progeCAD 2010 Professional automatically adds a virtual printer which can
produce PDF files without the need to own ADOBE ACROBAT.
The PDF file’s parameters can easily configured.
Drawings can be also exported to create
Layered PDF with the same Layers schema visible into the
PDF Import *
progeCAD converts vector PDF engineering
drawings into the DWG/DXF format as editable objects. It accurately
reproduces lines, shapes and text strings.
JPG format printing
progeCAD is able to print your drawing as a
Jpeg file, very useful for documentation, manuals, catalogs, brochures etc.
Gradient Hatch support
Gradients can be displayed and created
through an user friendly interface. Improved Hatch Form
Advanced Hatch interface
Improved Hatch form with an 'AutoCAD®
Crossing and Window Selection with
highlighted colors (colors can be customized)
In a large drawing, you can pan and zoom
quickly in a window that can display the whole drawing
ALE module and Libraries
The ALE module for
progeCAD ensures the best organization and management of the symbols
Libraries. progeCAD 2010 Professional version also includes all the
libraries (Architectural, ANSI-ISO and
DIN-ISO Mechanics, Electrotechnics and
3D Kitchen Furnishing).
The ALE module simplifies work to those who work with CAD with numerous
Create and modify quickly a large number of

CAD 3D models or publish your projects in Google Earth.
Georeferencing is the process of scaling,
rotating, translating and deskewing the image to match a particular size and
position. Special for GIS
You can insert and manipulate Raster images
with only one click of the mouse!
progeSOFT signed an important agreement with Hitachi, which allows the use
of this function in its top version.
ECW support *
An open standard wavelet compression image
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
Jpeg 2000 support *
Jpeg 2000 is a wavelet-based image
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
Integrated plot interface
Improved printer management with printer
control better integrated with progeCAD, paper orientation control,
Layouts configurations stored in the drawing
Main functions: Reads and writes 3D solid
objects with ACIS 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 is essential.
ACIS solids are available thanks to an agreement signed with Spatial, the
supplier of technology for solid modelling to the most important CAD
software in the world.
progeCAD 2010 Professional has implemented a complete management of ACIS
solids, which can now be viewed, printed, created and edited.
Any exchange of projects with CAD, which include ACIS Solids (such as
AutoCAD® 2000, 2009) is therefore much easier!
The creation of complex three-dimensional shapes by using solid models is
therefore much simpler in comparison with the more traditional techniques.
3D Photorealistic Render
This is an ideal product for architects and
for all those designers who need to view their own drawings in a
photorealistically visualization. progeCAD 2010 Professional includes the
advanced Rendering function, based on the Ray-Tracing algorithm, and has the
following characteristics: Photorealistic rendering with light and shade,
reflection and transparency effects
Materials like wood with grain, stone, plastic, metal, bricks can be
personalised, different shades
The finishing can be personalised with effects of reflection or

Lineweight for Display and Printing
Lineweight editing on entities on screen and
progeCAD manages the insertion on the
drawings of external references, that is drawings dynamically inserted in a
main drawing (by modifying a secondary drawing, the corresponding drawing
inserted in the original one will also be modified).
Xref Manager is an integrated mask (similar to the one available in AutoCAD®)
which allows the management of external references insertions easily and
Polar Tracking (Polar Snap)
help to draw objects at specific angles or in
specific relationships to other objects. When turned on polar tracking,
temporary alignment paths help you create objects at precise angles.
Etrack (similar to Otrack®)
Used to avoid the necessity of drawing
construction lines in order to locate points.

thawed, freeze etc.) for different editing, visualization or printing
requirement and restore them in a click
progeSOFT New Wizard
Original configuration mask of new
drawings based on prototypes or pre-set values (similar to the one
available in AutoCAD®)
Flexibility and personalisation
Like AutoCAD®, progeCAD has a bar
for typing commands and a series of icons arranged around the drawing area
which facilitate and speed up the use of the various functions.
There are obviously pull-down menus which, like command aliases and tool
bars, can be personalised.
Likewise the management of Layout and blocks is compatible and these can be
managed and inserted with the same commands as AutoCAD.
progeCAD is Multidocument.
This means that it is possible to open more than one drawing in the same
work session (multidocument session); planning can thus be very much speeded
up and simplified.
Find & Replace *
Automatically find (or replace) a string
into a dwg, both in Text, Attributes, Hyperlink, Dimension.
Utility for gathering, compacting and
transmitting DWG files. External references (xref) , fonts, shape files,
images and other supporting documents. Improve the drawing interchange.
progeSOFT Wblock Manager
Block registration management. Speed up
your custom libraries creation. It is an useful complement to the ALE

local editing) *
Change the blocks attributes definition,
text, justification, layer, position etc.
progeSOFT DWG Explorer
Windows Explorer style windows for dwg
browsing and block insertion.
Find your dwg in a click.
Double LINE *
This allows the user to trace a continuous
double line by using straight line segments and arcs.
The line’s ends can be closed and the angles can be adjusted automatically.
The width of the double line can be adjusted at any point.
Either the beginning or the end of the line can be attached to an already
existing object which
can be broken at the intersection point with the double line.
The “DOUBLE LINE” command greatly speeds up and simplifies drawing.
Easy recover of drawings through graphic
interface in the event of crashes
