IntelliCAD 8.0

The IntelliCAD Technology Consortium (ITC) has announced that IntelliCAD 8.0 will be available from any computer with an internet connection thanks to the new cloud deployment model.

Made available last week, users can sample IntelliCAD in the cloud using a local web browser with no installation or registration required.

IntelliCAD 8.0 is the most recent CAD development platform delivered by the ITC to its members. It contains over 1,200 new features and fixes that include interoperability with the latest version of .dwg files, in the 2014 version.

By using Mainframe2 technology, IntelliCAD can be run on a local computer without needing expensive hardware. Mainframe2 is designed to run any software application in the cloud with minimal internal development.

Robert Berry, Business Development Director of the IntelliCAD Technology Consortium said, ‘The Mainframe2 technology is an exciting new method of software delivery that allows us to run IntelliCAD across any platform including Macintosh and Linux. With the launch of the new IntelliCAD 8 via the cloud we have been able to let thousands of people immediately experience the power of this terrific software without the complication of installation or even registration.’
