  • Intellicad 11.1 engine
    The most recent IntelliCAD source code with all the relative improvements.
    Hundreds of bugs fixed, new features and improved interface
  • Optimized selection performance
  • Faster polyline vectorization
  • Fast Zoom
    Improved Zoom reactivity and smoothness
  • Quick Select 2x faster in large drawings


  • ViewCube
    The View Cube is a convenient way to control and manipulate the model space viewing angle in progeCAD
  • Insert blocks preview into Table Cells
    Insert Blocks through a friendly visual interface
  • New function for the UCS command
    Now it is possible to select Solid entities or Surfaces to define a new UCS
  • Preview Sheet on print
    Paper and margins preview in the print dialog box
    Regenerates entities only in the visible area
  • Improved TOOLPALETTE
    Drag an entity from a drawing and drop it on a tool palette to add the corresponding entity-creation command to the tool palette
  • Command Line Font
    Displays the Command Bar Font dialog box
  • Restore suppressed messages
    From the Options dialog, restore the help and warning messages that were definitively hidden by the user
  • GRIP improvements for clipped blocks
  • CTRL+R function
    Switches between tiled viewports in the Model tab or floating viewports in the current layout
  • 3DWALK
    Changes the 3D view in a drawing interactively to create the appearance of walking through the model. Manage Settings with the 3DWALKFLYSETTINGS command
  • 3DFLY
    Changes the 3D view in a drawing interactively to create the appearance of flying through the model. Manage Settings with the 3DWALKFLYSETTINGS command
    Displays a visual aid, or gizmo, used to move and rotate entities in the three-dimensional space


    Link a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet to a progeCAD table. The best thing about data linking is that any changes that you make to the Excel spreadsheet will update the progeCAD table. Plus, if you set it up this way, you can edit the table and it can write back to the spreadsheet.
    Imports directly an .xls or .xlsx file into a new static progeCAD Table.    
    The imported data fill a new table that is created automatically during import, and the new table is formatted automatically to match the format of the original spreadsheet.
  • MAPIMPORT - Geo Data and FDO Import
    Inserts geometries from SDF files (SDF is a native Autodesk® geospatial file-based format optimized for storing large classified data sets), SQLite and SHAPE (esri) files, or can use a database server service like WFS (the Web Feature Service allows users to share geospatial /or non-spatial data over the Internet. Thus, feature services can be consumed through the Internet in WebMaps, desktop and web applications.), PostgreSQL or MySQL.
  • MAPIINSERT - Multiple images insertion
    Insertion of multiple images at the same time (especially useful for georeferenced images).
  • Improved Geolocation
    New dialog box for adding a geographic location to a drawing.
    Use the Map Service command to turn geographic map services on and off. When off, the program is prevented from accessing the Internet to display the online map, and the Mark Position, Capture Area, and Reload Image commands are unavailable.
  • New Express command - Smart Join
    Joins lines, polylines, splines into a single polyline.
  • LAYMRG - Merge Layers
    Reduces the number of layers in a drawing by merging them. Objects on merged layers are moved to the target layer, and the original layers are purged from the drawing.
    Creates curves in the U and V directions on a Surface or on a 3D solid. The curves can be lines, polylines, arcs, or splines depending on the shape of a 3D object.
    Allows to create a new Dimension Style based on an existing dimension. Say you have a dimension and you change its properties by overriding such elements: extension line color, text color, arrowhead size, and text font. Just run the command AIDIMSTYLE and select the dimension and a new style will be created with these properties.
    Center Marks and Centerlines are dimensioning references to centers and axes of symmetry. Center Marks and Centerlines are associative objects. If you move or modify the associated objects, the center marks and centerlines adjust accordingly.
    From the Properties palette, you can control their geometry and visibility.

    Splits 2D entities such as lines, arcs, polylines, infinite lines, rays, splines into two entities at a single break point. Closed entities cannot be split at a single break point.

Working with BIM files

  • Support for Autodesk® Revit® 2023 files
    Import .rvt files v. 2023.
  • Import IFC and REVIT with Layers
    progeCAD imports BIM files with the layers structure reading from the IFC or Revit files (up to Autodesk® Revit® version 2022) .
  • The BIM Properties pane allows to create and assign Visibility States.
  • Select, attach, and manage .IFC and .RVT/.RFA underlays using the progeCAD Explorer.
  • Use the Audit command to check for errors in .IFC files that are attached as underlays.


  • QDIM
    Updated the Quick Dimension command and added the new Settings option in order to manage the associative dimension priority to the Endpoint or to the Intersection.
    New interface for exporting drawings to PDF. Now it is possible to export all layouts and the model space, based on the user selection, to create multi-page PDF files.
    Added the options "Layer" and "Erase" in the OFFSET command.
    “Erase” erases the source object after it is offset.
    “Layer” determines whether offset objects are created on the current layer or on the layer of the source object.
  • STEP/IGES Import
    New Object creation option. You can configure your preferred 3D CAD entity type when importing 3D external files. “Automatic” is the default and recommended mode.
  • Blocks Filter
    The "Blocks" option is now available to automatically filter selected objects in order to preserve objects other than blocks, such as Array, Polylines, MTexts, etc.
  • Big Font substitution
    Select a replacement font by searching directly on the PC or LAN, using the Browse function, and not only among the predefined choices.


  • WHOHAS – Information on the drawing user and usage
    Displays information about an open drawing file. You can use WHOHAS to find out who has a specified drawing file open. After you specify a drawing file, information is displayed that includes the full path of the file, the current user's login name, computer name, and the date and time that the drawing file was opened.
  • Network license Groups (Apply to NLM licenses only)
    The feature to assign a membership group to each NLM license which allows breaking the total number of available NLM licenses into some independent groups. In this way, licenses can be divided among specific offices / work groups.
