Q. Who uses IntelliCAD?
A. IntelliCAD is used by a wide variety of schools,
companies, municipalities, and individuals. Autodsys customers who are
using IntelliCAD include Oxford University, the Trane Corp., Hastings College
of Law, Humana Corp., Mid-States Controls Corporation, Kingspan Metl-Con
Ltd, L-3 Communications Brashear, Cardno Australia, East Coast Truss, Inc.,
Moduline Window Systems,City of Spokane and many others.
Q. How does Autodsys IntelliCAD compare to AutoCAD
A. IntelliCAD contains many enhancements not found
in AutoCAD LT including LISP, SDS, and Visual Basic, all of which allow
IntelliCAD to be programmed and support add-ons such as ArchT. IntelliCAD also
includes 3D Rendering and solid modeling depending on whether you purchase
Standard, Pro, or Pro Plus. Since IntelliCAD supports most AutoCAD commands and
has a price between $149 and $349 there is little reason to purchase LT.
Q. How does Autodsys
IntelliCAD compare with IntelliCAD versions from other vendors?
A. Autodsys is a commercial member of the IntelliCAD
Technology Consortium (ITC), as are others. The ITC does most of the core development work and then each ITC member adds its own functionality. We are also free to set our own pricing
and support options, as well as determine the frequency of updates that we
offer. I think you will find that we offer a very good product at a
very competitive price and that with our monthly updates and customer support
Autodsys has the best overall value.
Q. Is training available for IntelliCAD?
A. IntelliCAD is intended to be like AutoCAD, using
the same commands and files. Therefore most books or classes on AutoCAD will
apply to IntelliCAD. The dialogs in IntelliCAD will look different but
generally will perform the same functions.
Q. Are there tutorials available for IntelliCAD?
A. Any tutorial, book, or class on AutoCAD will
generally be relevant for IntelliCAD since it uses the same file formats and
commands. Even the dialogs generally perform the same functions although they
might look a little different.
Q. I have registered intelliCAD 30 day evaluation but
it's not sending me the authorization code so I can actually use it. What do I
A. The demo may be used without the authorization
code for 30 days by selecting 'Cancel' when asked. Authorization codes are
given once you purchase the software.
Q. The installation got to 99% and then stopped.
A. Before starting the installation please close all
other programs and disable anti-virus software which can interfere with the
installation. If you are using Microsoft Outlook you must 'Exit and log
off', not just close the window. If you still encounter problems restart
Windows and run the installation first thing before starting any other
