This add-on works with progeCAD Pro software that adds architectural features to the AutoCAD compatible program.
This add-on works with progeCAD Pro as the base. progeBILD adds architectural drawing functionality to the basic CAD package. The functionality available makes it easy to draw walls, parametric windows, doors and more. Creating complex wall structures is easy and the design is aided by a library of furnishings, kitchen and bath fittings etc. You should be able to specify manufacturer and information tags for schedules and bill of materials lists. This user friendly software has intuitive interface that lets you get started without a steep learning curve. The base is a AutoCAD clone and uses DWG drawing as the native format and thus is compatible with other AutoCAD like applications that work on DWG. There are quite a few of these including AutoCAD itself, IntelliCAD, BricsCAD and many others.
As the price of this basic software and the architectural add on is way below the price of the AutoCAD and features offered are at par with what AutoCAD does, this combo is a very good investment if you run a architectural design office. For example, just look at some of the easy to use features! These include a large selection of architectural symbols such as room marks, openings, special woodwork symbols etc. Predefined style of dimensioning, automatic creation of legends and descriptions, automatic creation specs and export to standard document formats like PDF, XLS, CSV, HTML, RTF etc. These features save a large slice time saving the manual work needed otherwise. This is clearly for the tech types. The software piece needs to be checked out in your typical work flow.
