ProgeCAD 2018 System Requirements
100% Compatible DWG/DXF File Sharing
ProgeCAD allows seamless sharing of DWG and DXF files with AutoCAD® or other DWG-compatible CAD programs. ProgeCAD works natively with DWG-files from AutoCAD® version 2.5 through 2018.
State of the art PDF to DWG converter
ProgeCAD comes with a highly qualified module for PDF to DWG conversion. The module allows you to convert PDF files into editable DWG CAD drawings to be edited in your CAD software with support for layers. You can now import original drawings straight from PDF sources such as catalogs or manuals and then work with them as original CAD drawings and edit lines, shapes, texts, etc.
Supercharged PDF capabilities
ProgeCAD 2018 lets you print drawings in PDF with the layers intact. Use the same layers as in the drawing when you export your DWG to PDF and then toggle these on/off in Acrobat Reader. ProgeCAD also comes with one-click 3D PDF export and new improved compression modes, image clipping and gradient hatches for 2D export.
More than 20 000 ready-to-use 2D/3D blocks included
Kickstart your CAD work with the Blocks Library Manager! You get access to endless ready-to-use blocks for all your CAD drawing needs ranging from exterior architecture to hydraulic and pneumatic symbols. The iCADLib module also allows you to seamlessly access Traceparts and Cadenas web portals for easy-guided usage of more than 100 million ready blocks. Insert them into your drawings from the web with a click.
ProgeCAD comes with a Raster to Vector add-on which lets you quickly convert images or scanned drawings into vector representation (DXF CAD file format) for further editing. The module supports most common image formats and performs several image enhancement operations such as; edge detection, line thinning, automatic thresholding into black and white vectors, etc.
3D EasyArch Plugin
Create professional looking floor-plans and buildings with the easy to use plugin for parametric architectural design. The plugin boosts productivity and works in both 2D and 3D. Easily generate and drag-and-drop parametric walls, doors, windows, stairs, etc. in just a few clicks. It also comes with a packed library of dynamic blocks for internal design.
3D Photorealistic rendering based on Artisan
ProgeCAD 2018 comes with a new rendering engine (Artisan) allowing you to create photorealistic images of your models using pre-set materials and a range of lightning setups. If you like you can also create your own library of custom light setups and realistic materials to include.
Enhanced SHAPE-import support
The new ProgeCAD version allows you to easily import SHAPE (ESRI) files with both geometry and attributes straight into DWG-drawings.
Easy-to-use in-place text editor
The new and improved text editor makes it extremely easy to add or edit text straight in the drawing. This gives you direct display control and streamlines your workflow.
Perspective Image Correction
With the new plugin, images and photos insertion becomes an easy process. Intuitively correct their perspective through the multi-point system.
Intuitive default layers
ProgeCAD supports easy-to-use default layers to place automatic dimensions and tests onto the correct layer. Layers can be predefined for both dimensions and hatches.
Improved PointCloud import
Along the standard file formats (PCG or ISD) ProgeCAD 2018 supports easy import of the new Point Cloud formats such as XYZ, PLY and LAS.
Can ProgeCAD 2018 be installed on more than one computer under the same license?
Yes, you may install the software onto two computers. For example, you can install ProgeCAD onto your work computer and home computer and then switch between using them for your CAD drawing needs.
What is the difference between ProgeCAD and AutoCAD®?
As a user, it is hard to recognize any larger difference between AutoCAD® and ProgeCAD except from the price. ProgeCAD comes at a sufficiently lower price tag than AutoCAD®. In terms of functionality and look-and-feel the programs are hard to tell apart. Organizations worldwide have now realized this and are switching to ProgeCAD to free up their software license budgets.
Is there any other ownership costs related to ProgeCAD 2018? Is the license paid as an annual fee?
No, the license fee is a one-time cost and gives you access to the program in perpetuity. You can of course, at your discretion, decide that you want to upgrade to a new version when such is available. ProgeCAD doesn´t come with any hidden charges. As the program is easy to get started with for experienced AutoCAD® users the learning and support costs within your organization will be low.
Do I have to upgrade my ProgeCAD when a new version is available?
No, you do not have to upgrade your ProgeCAD 2018 version unless you want access to the new functionality. Among our current users we have noticed that several are still using 5 to 10 years old ProgeCAD versions and are extremely satisfied without upgrading.
Can I move my ProgeCAD license/installation to another computer?
Yes, first you need to uninstall the program from the computer where it currently resides. Then you simply download it from our website and run the installer on the new computer and enter your license key again.
Can ProgeCAD 2018 be used for CAD house drawings?
Yes, ProgeCAD is a powerful general CAD software comparable to AutoCAD® in functionality. It allows you to make all sorts of 2D/3D drawings including house drawings. ProgeCAD comes with the architectural 3D EasyArch plugin which is an automated building tool for architects. It is designed to boost efficiency when doing house, interior design and remodeling work in both 2D and 3D.
Is ProgeCAD 2018 available for Mac?
If you are looking for CAD software for Mac we recommend iCADMac. However, ProgeCAD can be installed on your Mac if you have Parallel Windows environment installed. It allows you to run both Mac and Windows based software at the same time.
