AcceliCAD 2013 7.2.5415.0
AcceliCAD is the new standard for low-cost CAD software that offers DWG compatibility and an AutoCAD-like command set and interface. Anyone who has used AutoCAD can easily learn to use AcceliCAD in no time at all.
At half the cost of AutoCAD LT and 1/10 the cost of AutoCAD it offers exceptional value while still retaining most of the features and commands of the more expensive software. AcceliCAD® is the intelligent choice for architects, engineers, designers - virtually any professional who creates or uses CAD drawings.
Here is why:
Unrivaled DWG File Format Compatibility
AcceliCAD's native file format is .DWG, so when you open an existing DWG file there's no file conversion and no data loss. We provide industry standard compatibility with an AutoCAD command set, as well programming api's such as LISP and SDS (AcceliCAD's C programming API). That means you can get to work immediately using the DWG files, commands and applications you rely on.
AcceliCAD offers many unique productivity features, including the ability to open multiple drawings at once; a Drawing Explorer that lets you review and exchange drawing content with drag-and-drop ease; and visual customization of menus and toolbars -- no programming required! And thanks to its ActiveX integration, you can insert AcceliCAD drawings (or just parts of them) into a Microsoft Office application file such as Word or Excel.
For the first time ever, you can buy a heavy-duty CAD program that's compatible with the .DWG file format and industry standard applications at mass-market pricing. Other feature-rich, low-cost CAD programs have tried to create their own standard as opposed to leveraging the existing .DWG standard. AcceliCAD's low price makes it affordable to anyone who creates and uses .DWG files.
C, LISP, and VBA Development
If you have existing applications that were built using the ADS or AutoLISP libraries, you can quickly port them
