The software is available in two versions, allowing customers to adapt it to their own needs and current design tasks. The ArCADiasoft company is a member of the ITC (IntelliCAD Technology Consortium, USA) - the sole owner of the copyrights to the IntelliCAD source codes. ArCADiasoft’s membership in the ITC consortium ensures that our customers are constantly supplied with the latest software developments and ongoing updating of the program. The software has a new graphics interface, where all the options are on ribbons located at the top of the screen.
The ArCADia software has all the features of the ArCADia LT software and is additionally enhanced with the following functions:
- The upgraded creation of 2D drawings (simple, multiline, splines, sketching and other drawing options) and full modification (with simple and more advanced functions: chamfering, breaking, connecting, matching, etc.). - Creating 3D drawings (wedge, cone, sphere, cuboid, cylinder, etc.) through drawing and full modification of all elements and the option to read ACIS solids. - Edition of inserted references in dwg. files. - New layer of handling features, managed by the Layer Editing Manager, a new tool to handle and filter layers. The option to set layer transparency and layer freezing in the viewport of the paper area. - Advanced quick-selection feature. - The option of photo-realistic visualization and rendering. The developed spatial model of the software is presented in different materials applied on particular planes, distinguishing between smooth and rough surfaces, panes from mirrors, illuminated surfaces from shady ones, specifying the observation point, range of vision and lighting positions.
SIMILARITIES WITH AUTOCAD:
- Clear software interface. - Command lines and their execution - Working in layers. - Explorer similar to the Design Center. - Dockable property panel. - Working in Cartesian and polar coordinates. - Dimensioning and text styles. - Holders, attributes, hatching. - Precise drawing functions and snapping points (ESNAP), drawing mode (ORTO), etc. - Possibility to import lines and dimensioning styles.
FULL SOFTWARE PERSONALIZATION:
- The implemented interpreter of the LISP programming language enables loading of applications developed in other languages. - In addition, the software’s features may be expanded by loading SDS, DRX and IRX add-ons.
