CMS IntelliCAD Raster Image AttachSample file at image credits to USGS - "ASTER GDEM is a product of METI and NASA."

CMS IntelliCAD supports Raster Image insertion as underlay. Images are stored as a raster. Additionally other technical data defined geometrically as points matrix can also be stored as raster. As example, each point can store data about an elevation measurement or temperature that can be then translated in to visual data like a color graded image.

The advantages are clear, simple data structure.

CMS IntelliCAD is impressively able to attach a huge number of data set file formats as listed below:

Tool Palettes

New Tool Palettes now comes with CMS IntelliCAD® 9.x PE and PE Plus software. Tool palettes feature provides a combined method for accessing tools. By merging toolbars and ribbons concepts, users can quickly access drawing, editing and exploring tools. Palettes categories can also be expanded or customized making it much easier to manage and custom. CMS IntelliCAD allow users to dock and auto-hide tool palettes.

Working with CMS IntelliCAD Explorer

IntelliCAD Explorer provides a powerful and convenient way to maintain and manage many of the features and settings of your drawings. You can use IntelliCAD Explorer to work with layers, linetypes, text styles, coordinate systems, named views, blocks, and dimension styles within the current drawing or to copy this information between drawings.
CMS IntelliCAD Explorer is able to:
• Manage elements related to settings and entities in your drawings.
• Organize information on layers, manage layers, and work with layer states.
• Create and use linetypes.
• Load text fonts and create text styles.
• Select and control coordinate systems.
• Save and restore named views.
• Work with layouts.
• Save, insert, and manage blocks and external references.
• Work with groups.
• Copy, cut, and paste dimension styles between .dwg files.

CMS IntelliCAD Explorer - drawing blocks preview

In IntelliCAD Explorer, you can work with any file that is referenced from an open drawing. In addition to commonly used xrefs, or externally referenced drawing files, you can also manage raster images, .dwf files, .dgn files, .pdf files, and point clouds directly from IntelliCAD Explorer.

CMS IntelliCAD lets you easily create 3-D designs using the 3-D drawing tools. You can display hidden-line, shaded versions of your 3-D models or your existing 3-D libraries with a click of a button.

CMS IntelliCAD lets you easily create 3-D designs using the 3-D drawing tools. You can display hidden-line, shaded, or fully rendered versions of your 3-D models or your existing 3-D libraries with a click of a button. You can choose professional-quality, preset options for lighting, surface materials, and backgrounds. With IntelliCAD's sophisticated raytracing capabilities, you can produce photo-realistic 3-D renderings.

Now providing even more advanced rendering tools, CMS IntelliCAD includes an additional rendering interface with ARTISAN, which makes creating high-quality photo-realistic images from your drawings quick and easy. With a few clicks, choose from a wide range of pre-set materials and lighting setups, and your drawing is rendered. Further customization is easy too, including creation of custom realistic materi­als.
This add-on is available as a separate standalone installer that ALL CMS IntelliCAD v8.2 - and following versions - (standalone or cloud) users can find at the download section of this website.

As you create three-dimensional entities, the program displays both wire-frame and surface models in wire-frame view, which makes it difficult to visualize your three dimensional models. To better visualize the model, you can remove all the lines that are hidden behind other entities or surfaces when seen from the current viewpoint. Shading goes a step further by removing hidden lines and then assigning flat colors to the visible surfaces, making them appear solid. Shaded images are useful when you want to quickly visualize your model as a solid entity, though they lack depth and definition.

Rendering provides an even more realistic image of your model, complete with light sources, shadows, surface material properties, and reflections, giving your model a photo-realistic look. As shown in the following illustrations, when you render a model, the program removes hidden lines and then shades the surfaces as though they were illuminated from imaginary light sources.

Microsoft Active X Support

Microsoft Active X Support

CMS IntelliCAD provides in-place editing of Microsoft® objects, such as those created in Microsoft® Word and Microsoft® Excel software programs. In-place editing makes it easy to share data with other users and programs. For example, you can include IntelliCAD drawings in files created using Microsoft® Word, and you can insert files created using Microsoft® Word into your IntelliCAD drawings.

In addition to being compatible with AutoCAD, CMS IntelliCAD goes several steps further by providing you with innovative features to increase your productivity.
