CMS IntelliCAD CAD Software

CMS IntelliCAD® CAD Software is designed for anyone who wants a fast and efficient CAD program with all the power and versatility of standard programs such as AutoCAD® by Autodesk®, Inc., or MicroStation® by Bentley Systems, Inc., at an affordable price. IntelliCAD integrates the Microsoft® Windows® interface with a powerful CAD engine using today’s advanced technology.

CMS IntelliCAD also provides unparalleled compatibility with AutoCAD because it uses most of the same file formats including those for drawings (.dwg files), commands, linetypes, hatch patterns, and text styles. Users can also use AutoCAD menu files and run Autodesk® AutoLISP® programs. Custom ADS (Autodesk® AutoCAD Development System®) programs can be simply recompiled to link with the IntelliCAD libraries. CMS IntelliCAD supports many third-party ADS programs. Ask your software vendor to provide an IntelliCAD-compatible version of the program if you have a program that is not already supported by CMS IntelliCAD.

CMS IntelliCAD is more compatible with the AutoCAD program than any other CAD product. It delivers additional tools with advanced CAD features and it has a seamless Microsoft® Windows integration. This powerful program provides a superb combination of features for CAD users like architects, engineers, and designers.

CMS IntelliCAD incorporates standard features found in other CAD programs, along with features and capabilities you won’t find anywhere else. Its multiple-document interface (MDI) lets you open and work with several drawings at the same time. You can easily copy drawing entities between drawings. In addition, the powerful IntelliCAD Explorer lets you manage information, settings and quickly copy layers, linetypes, and other information between drawings.

Using AutoCAD legacy drawings
CMS IntelliCAD fully supports AutoCAD legacy drawings. IntelliCAD reads and writes .dwg files in their native format without any loss of data from AutoCAD *.dwg 2016 version back to version 2.5. AutoCAD LT® included. Because IntelliCAD uses Autodesk® DWG® format as its native file format, no translation is required.
