Seattle, WA--"Visio Corporation's IntelliCAD '98 hit the market and is doing well," says Brady Brewer, Visio's product manager. For $349, users can have high-functionality without the expense, he says. In addition to having a DWG native file format, IntelliCAD supports the ability to open multiple drawings at once. The program also offers Drawing Explorer(TM), a feature that lets the user review and exchange drawing content with drag-and-drop ease, says Brewer. The user may customize the visual toolbar and menu, with no additional programming; and insert whole or parts of IntelliCAD drawings into a Microsoft Office application file or a Visio Technical schematic.
In other company news, Visio Technical 5.0 users can download an updated DWG file converter free of charge from the company's web site. The updated converter uses technology developed for Visio's IntelliCAD, and purchased as part of the MarComp acquisition. On May 1, Visio also released a free piping and instrumentation design (P&ID) solution to help customers "streamline their work and make their designs more intelligent." Users can get copies of both programs at: www.visio.com.
