IntelliCAD 7.2 Released By IntelliCAD Technology Consortium

New Features:

Performance enhancements

  • Graphics device performance improved using OpenGL for graphics cards that support it properly. This greatly improves dynamic pan, zoom, redraw, and rotation, especially for large files.
  • File size and print time reduced for PDF printing.
  • Grip handling, trimming, and extending improved for splines and polylines with very large segment counts (5,000+) due to improved geometric functions for complex curves.
  • Divide command performance improved.
  • Dynamic display performance improved in large drawing files using new ZOOMDETAIL and DRAGDETAIL system variables.
  • Snapping for large drawing files improved.
  • Dynamic dragging improved during entity creation and modification in large drawing files.
  • Memory consumption reduced for raster images.

Entity snapping

  • Use entity snap tracking.
  • Use new entity snaps: Parallel Snap, From Point, Temporary Tracking Point, and Midpoint Between 2 Points.
  • Snap to the center of a polygon (closed polyline).

Working with other files

  • Import .dgn files.
  • Export Collada format files (.dae files).
  • Insert underlays from .pdf, .dgn, and .dwf files.
  • Attach MrSID format files (.sid files).
  • Specify files and paths for working with IntelliCAD using the new Paths/Files tab interface in the Options dialog box.


  • Clip layout viewports.
  • Right-click a Layout tab includes From Template.



  • IntelliCAD 7.2 uses Teigha version 3.5.1 from the Open Design Alliance (updated from version 3.4.1).
  • New (starttransaction) and (endtransaction) LISP functions.
  • New SDS functions for working with graphics planes: sds_getviewplanedc, sds_releaseviewplanedc, and sds_cleanplane.
  • .NET libraries available to load using the APPLOAD command.


More new features

  • Purge unused drawing elements using the new Purge dialog box.
  • Find and replace text.
  • Use the Notification Manager located in the lower right of the IntelliCAD window to view messages and alerts about drawings and running IntelliCAD.
  • Use updated selection filters to better select entities by property, type, proxy, and more.
  • Manage layers using utilities at the command line: LAYCUR, LAYDEL, LAYFRZ, LAYISO, LAYLCK, LAYMCH, LAYMCUR, LAYOFF, LAYON, LAYTHW, LAYULCK, LAYUNISO.
