Whats New in progeCAD 2019
New Render engine based on Artisan
New integration with Artisan Renderer (free included).
The Renderer allows you to create a photorealistic image of your model quickly using a wide range of pre-set materials and lighting setups combined with the ability to create custom lights and realistic materials.
New commands to import SHAPE (ESRI) files with geometry and its attributes into DWG drawings.
Create hatch patterns from images, blocks, external references (xrefs) and wipeouts
In-place Editor for Text and Multiline Text
The new multiline text editor allows you to edit multiline text in place. However, not all multiline text features are implemented in the new editor.
PDF Print with Layers
Create high quality PDF files from drawings (with layers!). progeCAD Professional prints PDF files with the same Layer structure of a drawing. The layers can be set on/off in the PDF document using Adobe Reader.
Improved PDF Export
Export to 2D .pdf files now includes new compression modes, image clipping and gradient hatches
Improved PointCloud import
(.pcg, .isd, .xyz, .ply, .las, .laz)
New Array dialog
XREF and Locked layers Fading
Controls the dimming for Xref entities and entities on locked layers
Fade control with RefEdit command
Now progeCAD supports the XFADECTL system variable, controls the amount of fading within a reference being edited in place.
New interface for RefEdit command
3D Connection SpaceMouse support
progeCAD now supports the 3Dconnexion SpaceMouse. The 3D Mouse allows to simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate models while selecting with your traditional mouse. This unique two-handed workflow makes design work more comfortable and efficient.
Click on Options in Command line
String options on the command line can be selected with the mouse.
VPMAX and VPMIN commands
The commands allow to maximize and minimize Viewports. VPMAX expands the current viewport for editing and VPMIN restores the current layout viewport. The advantage of using these two commands is that you can pan and zoom while you are in Model Space, and when you go back to Paper Space the position and the scale of the objects in the Layout viewport remain unchanged.
Support for variable DIMLAYER
Default layer for all dimensions. Specifies the default layer for new dimensions, overrides the current layer the CLAYER system variable.
Support for variables HPLAYER and HPTRANSPARENCY
In the hatch dialog, the user can set the Default layer (overriding the current layer ‘CLAYER’) and set the level of transparency for new hatches. Changing these values does not affect existing hatch objects
3D solids Sub Entity selection
Selection of Faces and Edges on 3D objects with the CTRL button and click.
The command brings all texts to the front.
Improved compatibility with Microstation files Directly open your DGN files
Import & Open new Microstation file formats (.dgnlib,.rdl,.cel)
Object Snap on Underlay files (PDF, DWF and DGN)
Improved Underlay objects:
For .pdf, dwg, and .dgn underlays, new support includes monochrome, fade, background color adjust, show, and show clipped properties
Lock the location for Floating or Docked Toolbars
Contextual Ribbons for Text, Multiline Text, Image entities and the Refedit command
Pin Lock for Ribbon panel
Workspaces options management
Commands ISOLATEOBJECTS and UNISOLATEOBJECTS – HIDEOBJECTS
ISOLATEOBJECTS temporarily hides the display of all entities except those you select. The entities are displayed in the current view. All other entities are temporarily hidden. HIDEOBJECTS temporarily hides selected objects in the current view. All other objects are visible. UNISOLATEOBJECTS displays entities previously hidden with ISOLATEOBJECTS or HIDEOBJECTS
Possible to associate a Default Template to the QNEW command
New CACHEFILES will externally cache layout data to enhance layout switching performance and memory usage
The new command for editing single block instances

Windows RIBBON-style user interface
Now progeCAD supports both common Menu interfaces: the Classic one based on the standard toolbar and the new up-to-date Ribbon-based menu as of Microsoft Office® or AutoCAD®
Ribbons use tabs to expose different sets of controls, eliminating the need for many parallel toolbars. Customizable through CUI Files.
64 Bit and Multicore support
progeCAD now offers native 64-bit and multi-core support with improved memory management. Handling of large drawing files gets much more efficient on 64-bit machines, while performance when opening or regenerating progeCAD drawing files has been enhanced by 1.5-3 times on multi-core computers.
Import and display PCG or ISD data files from 3D laser scanners. Point Clouds can serve a wide range of purposes, including creation of 3D CAD models out of manufactured products, for metrology/quality inspection, and in a multitude of visualization, animation, rendering and mass customization applications.
To create and easily format Tables in drawings. A table style enables to specify different cell styles for each row allowing to display different justification and appearance for text and gridlines. Tables are formatted according to their styles and you can apply to individual cells, rows,or columns your formatting overriding the formatting that comes from the table style.
DWG Converter is a new tool introduced to facilitate the files interchange with other DWG/DXF/DNG-based CAD software. Allows to easily convert drawings between different DWG, DXF, DGN versions.
Improved files interchange and DWG compatibility
Import Collada (.dae files)
Improved support for DGN overlays, Civil3D, ADT, and mechanical object enablers
Improved Open .dgn files by converting them into .dwg files

• ProgeCAD supports an interface complete with an "AutoCAD® - Like icon menu and AutoCAD® - Like commands.
Save and open drawings on Cloud! progeCAD Cloud makes it easy for you to reach any of your drawings wherever you are. What is
more, it is an optimal way of sharing drawings with your team and customers. progeCAD Cloud supports the major cloud services for
file sharing and syncing like DropBox, Google Drive and Microsoft One Drive.
Dynamic Input is an alternative way of entering commands through a command line interface at your Crosshair. You can input data
like the length of a line or the radius of a circle with dynamic visualization of changes relative to mouse movements. When dynamic
input is turned on, a tooltip displays dynamically updated information next to the cursor. When a command is in progress, you can
specify options and values in the tooltip text box. You can also configure dynamic input to meet your personal or company standards.
The feature is to further boost your productivity by making drafting and editing processes way more efficient.
The previous progeCAD versions constrained the drafter to constantly change the XY plane to work on a particular face or plane of an
object when working with 3D models. You had to specify a new user coordinate system every time you changed views. The new
dynamic UCS feature automatically creates a temporary XY plane to draw on. The dynamic UCS feature dramatically speeds up
drawing in 3D environment.
Advanced Solid Grips
By dragging grips you can change the shape and size of primitive solids. For example, the change of the height of a cone will maintain
the overall cone shape and automatically update the base radius. The Solid Grips feature is introduced to enrich 3D editing
Alongside the classic X,Y Ortho snap modes restricting cursor movement to horizontal and vertical, the program now also provides
the Z Ortho mode restricting the cursor to the up and down directions.
The feature automates the sizing of annotations such as text, hatch and dimensions in multiple viewports with varying scales. The
annotative objects are scaled based on the current annotation scale setting and are automatically displayed at the correct size. The
following objects can be annotative, meaning that they can size automatically:
- Text (single-line text)
- Mtext (multi-line text)
- Block attributes
The Field tool automates the insertion of titleblock text or any other annotations in a drawing. If you insert titleblock text in your
drawings, you know how it is difficult to keep that text updated and accurate. There are also many people who place drawing
numbers or names in several different places in a drawing and that inflicts extra work. With progeCAD you can use fields to
automate the insertion of titleblock text or other annotations in a drawing. Especially, if you use this text repeatedly, you can save
time and improve accuracy. It is surely the case when you have to do this with the current date, the drafter’s initials, the company
name and address and so on.
Arc Aligned Text
The ARCTEXT command enables text alignment along an existing arc object. It is a very handy feature to add complex curved text in
The command creates a breakline, a polyline including a breakline symbol, by specifying two points and the location of the breakline
symbol between them. You can control the relative size and appearance of the breakline symbol and the extension of the polyline
beyond the selected start and end points.
progeCAD can create PDF files compliant with the PDF/A Standard. The PDF/A file format is often a requisite for official
institutions and public administrations. The PDF/A file format is an ISO-standardized version of the Portable Document Format (PDF)
specialized for the digital preservation of electronic documents. PDF/A differs from PDF by prohibiting features ill-suited to long-term
archiving, such as font linking (as opposed to font embedding).
Change Space command
It is quite easy to move entities from Model Space to Paper Space or the other way around with the help of the CHSPACE command.
Lets say that you add some text in your drawing, but then decide that the text should really be in a Notes box in your title block. The
CHSPACE command will do just that in a second. The command actually does more than just move or copy selected entities it also
scales entities by the viewport scale so they come out in the correct size.
Draw Order advanced tools
The new toolbar allows an advanced control of draw order of CAD entities making your check on the drawing arrangement more
accurate and efficient.
Autocomplete command mode
When entering a command or system variable, you are assisted by a list or auto completion of the commands and system variables
as they are being typed. A must-have for CAD professionals who are fond of typing commands directly on their keyboards instead of
using Menus or Toolbars.
