IntelliCAD 7 Beta2 Release: Work Smarter and Faster with a Brand New Architecture
Portland, OR., USA, February 9, 2010 – The IntelliCAD
Technology Consortium (ITC) today announced a Beta2 release for ITC
members (such as CMS, Inc.) of the all-new IntelliCAD 7 CAD software incorporating a new
software architecture designed to optimize the core data import/export
and application programming functions critical to users of the
IntelliCAD CAD platform. The IntelliCAD 7 architecture uses DWGdirect™
from the Open Design Alliance (ODA) as its internal database for
improved handling of DWG files. For companies building custom
applications, IntelliCAD 7 also offers the powerful DRX object oriented
application programming language (API) developed by the Open Design
Alliance (ODA) with custom IRX extensions specific to the IntelliCAD
The IntelliCAD platform, combined with ITC member solutions is being
used by thousands of companies for creating engineering and design
documents from the simplest 2D room design to the most complex 3D plant
construction and BIM analysis. The new enhancements to the core
IntelliCAD product offer architects and engineers an enhanced user
experience through an improved user interface, more efficient drawing
handling and improved product quality.
Companies building design automation applications on top of
IntelliCAD will appreciate the DRX/IRX API to create sophisticated
commands and industry-specific custom objects that interact
intelligently with other objects according to their properties. DRX
and the IRX extensions provide the ability to create complex
applications with custom objects similar to the Autodesk® ObjectARX®
API. The unique IRX extensions offer special cursor handlers,
specialized editing functions, document and layout managers and custom
printing and plotting interfaces.
The new IntelliCAD 7 geometry subsystem improves graphic quality and
supports a variety of graphic display devices. The extensive quality,
performance and functional improvements to the IntelliCAD 7 product
extends the decade long IntelliCAD tradition of incorporating new
enhancements specifically requested by its members.
