April 12, 2013 - MicroSurvey is pleased to announce a major service pack update for MicroSurvey CAD 2013. This latest version of MicroSurvey CAD – built for surveyors, contractors and engineers – is powered by the latest IntelliCAD 7.2a engine, and is available in 5 product levels: Basic, Standard, Premium, Ultimate, and Studio
The new IntelliCAD 7.2a engine has over 700+ fixes since the release of IntelliCAD 7.2 which was used in MicroSurvey CAD 2013, and has new support for opening AutoCAD 2013 .dwg/.dxf files.
According to Brian Sloman, product manager for desktop products at MicroSurvey, "The over 700+ fixes included in the IntelliCAD 7.2a engine provide our users with a dramatically improved overall experience, and being able to open AutoCAD 2013 and AutoCAD 2014 drawing files maximizes their ability to work with drawings from third-party sources. On top of the improvements to the CAD engine, several important new surveying-related features have also been added which we know our users are going to love: full 3D rendering in MicroSurvey CAD Standard, Premium, Ultimate, and Studio; view point cloud data from LiDAR and 3D scanners and draw or create surface models directly within that point cloud data in MicroSurvey CAD Ultimate and Studio; design and record keyframe animations in MicroSurvey CAD Studio; an enhanced Autosave that now backs up the survey database; and many other enhancements that have been added."
