Improved print preview speed:
- Faster preview creation. Immediate zoom on details. Also, you can now scroll the preview using the mouse wheel to zoom and pan.
New predefined Ribbon Workspaces:
- Besides the normal complete Full Ribbon interface, two more ready-to-use pre-set menus allow you to find commands much quicker:
- “Beginners” – for users just starting to learn CAD or working on simple drawings. It shows only the basic CAD functions making CAD usage easier for non-skilled users.
- “2D Drawing & Annotate” – the complete set of 2D functions for users who don’t need 3D and prefer a clean workspace.
Toggle Full-Screen Mode:
Clears the screen of Toolbars, Ribbons, Palettes, and dockable windows, excluding the command window, to maximize the drawing area.
- The New conversion engine with page preview and such new options as the Batch conversion of all PDFs in a folder, multi-page PDF conversion, dashed lines recognition, plus dozens of other important improvements.
PDF with Append function:
- The Append function allows adding a new sheet to an existing PDF to create multi-page PDFs when printing different views of a drawing or different drawing.
- The control of selection when you select an object that overlaps other objects. Cycling through overlapping objects makes your selection extremely easier.
- progeCAD has added the import of new essential file formats. progeCAD 2021 can now import .sldprt part files and .sldasm assembly files created with SolidWorks.
- Create and insert a QRCODE from any text, URL, etc.

Section and Elevation lines:
- Creating 2D sections and elevations from 3D models in your drawings. You can control the size and shape of any created section/elevation and dynamically update an existing section/elevation when the objects included in the section/elevation are modified. The feature is similar to those available in AutoCAD Architecture. The Commands can be applied on all 3D objects, including IFC and Revit Underlayers/imported models.
ImageClip on the boundary:
- A new option to use a Polyline as a clipping boundary.
- New options: Rectangular, Circular, and Elliptical. Now you can draw Revclouds with a specific shape using the classic or calligraphic mode.
- Alternatively, create a Revision cloud directly by selecting an object and transforming it.
- progeCAD now supports the Photometric properties for the light’s entities. Through the properties panel now you can manage the Lamp Intensity and the Lamp Color.
Array. New direct commands:
- The command evenly distributes object copies in a circular pattern around a center point or axis of rotation.
- The command distributes object copies into any combination of rows, columns, and levels.
- ArrayEdit the command modifies associative arrays by editing array properties, editing source objects, replacing items with other objects, or creating a 3D array with objects on 2 or more 3D levels automatically.
Area command improved:
- The command shows a colored preview area selection. Also implemented the area calculation by pick point.
- The command automatically creates export files (.dwf/.pdf) from the current drawing and saves them to a specified location on saving or closing the DWG file.
- The command measures distance, radius, angle, and area of selected objects or a sequence of points.
- Extracting information from objects such as block attributes and drawing properties and creating a detailed schedule, a parts list, or a bill of materials to a table inside a drawing or into an external file. For example, with a residential construction project, create a door installation schedule to place in the drawing. Using the Data Extraction wizard, you can limit the selection only to doors objects and extract the data. You can create a list as an Excel external file as well. You can use a data extraction file as a template to perform the same type of extraction at any time.
AttOut – AttIn:
- Import/Export block attribute values from/to an external file in the tab-delimited ASCII format.
- Sets layer visibility within viewports. In a layout, you can assign a set of unique display properties for each Viewport layer. These settings override those in the Model tab and are controlled by the layer manager palette. VPLayer works on Color, LType, LWeight, Pstyle, Transparency, Visibility (Freeze-Thaw).
- Controls the Selection Filter panel. It displays all entities in the drawing and allows you to filter and select entities by Layer, Color, entity Type, and Linetype. When you finish selecting entities, you can then use the selection set in subsequent commands.
- Allows to directly send via Skype a selected portion of the current drawing.
- Converts a surface into a 3D solid with a specified thickness.
- Converts 3D solids, meshes, and 2D geometry to procedural surfaces.
- The command works on closed 2D entities, 3D solids, regions, mesh entities, 3D faces and lines, arcs, and open polylines with thickness.
- Converts 3D solids, Polyface meshes and polygon meshes, regions, and closed polylines to mesh entities.
- Converts eligible 3D objects to 3D solids.
- PointCloudBoundary and PointCloudPointSize
- The commands control whether the point cloud bounding box is displayed and the size of the points for point cloud objects. The points size is enabled for RCP and RCS point clouds only.
- Sets a camera and target location to create and save a 3D perspective view of objects.
