Portland, Oregon — Autodsys, Inc. announced today that in honor of the 10th anniversary of the IntelliCAD source code being made available to developers it was offering its top IntelliCAD-branded product at a special reduced price of $199.90.
On September 29, 1999 the IntelliCAD Technology Consortium web site went live with source code for IntelliCAD 2000 available to anyone who signed up to become a member.
"IntelliCAD has revolutionized the CAD marketplace by making available a highly capable product at a price that anyone can afford", said Ronald Prepchuk, President of Autodsys.
Available until October 15th for $199.90, IntelliCAD Pro Plus contains many advanced features including ACIS Solids, Visual Basic, Block Manager, LISP, aerial viewer, and many other useful tools.

What Different Versions of IntelliCAD are there, and what do they cost ?
Commercial members of the ITC license the IntelliCAD source code and are free to modify the technology to meet their particular needs.
Members are free to name their products IntelliCAD but have the option of identifying their products with a different name.
Since the IntelliCAD technology is under continuous development, most members choose to add on to their products using the LISP, SDS, and/or VBA API's rather than directly modify the source code.
Most member's products contain the standard features as shipped by the IntelliCAD Technology Consortium. Some members combine the technology with their own vertical solutions to create a complete design package for various engineering and architectural disciplines.
The ITC has a list of their Member's and their respective products at www.intellicad.org/members.
Thus you will find terms like Standard, Classic, Iron, Silver, Gold, Pro, Pro Plus etc. etc. That means that a Standard Edition from Member A may not be the the same as a Standard Edition from Member B.
Can you purchase IntelliCAD in the UK ?
It is possible to purchase IntelliCAD from a source within the UK.
Not everyone is happy purchasing goods over the internet using credit cards, because of the obvious security issues. One also has to remember that Customs will add 3.5% Import Duty and 15% VAT, plus the Post Office will add a handling fee for pre paying the Import Duty and VAT and then recovering it from you.
For this reason CADopia have appointed CADENTIAL as the UK Reseller for IntelliCAD.
