HOUSTON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jan 13, 2012 -- Intergraph has published a new start-up guide for CADWorx DraftPro, its new intelligent AutoCAD®-based 2D plant design and layout solution that it is offering free via download. The start-up guide provides easy-to-follow directions so that users who download the software can become productive right away. To download the CADWorx DraftPro start-up guide, visit www.cadworxdraftpro.com.
CADWorx DraftPro is specification driven, with hundreds of ready-to-use specifications in metric and imperial formats and over 60,000 piping components. Users can quickly and easily generate components on-the-fly as they are needed, and the built-in intelligence takes the guesswork out of placing piping components. Items easily connect and piping automatically breaks when the designer inserts components. With CADWorx DraftPro, the designer can quickly draw elevations and sections of layouts and produce accurate, customizable bills of material of the design. The software comes with multiple languages and the files can be easily adapted to any language.
Always 100% free via download, CADWorx DraftPro uses the same piping specifications as CADWorx Plant Professional and works with all supported versions of AutoCAD. If a user at some point decides to move to 3D design, the user can convert CADWorx DraftPro specifications to CADWorx Plant Professional at any time.
