"It's clear that CAD users appreciate a powerful and cost-effective AutoCAD LT alternative in these tough economic times. We're really looking forward to meeting many of our early customers face-to-face at the AIA show," said Royal Farros, CEO of IMSI/Design.
Both DoubleCAD XT and XT PRO include features that AutoCAD users have been requesting for some time, items such as self-healing walls, transparent fills, draw order by layer, and Bezier curves.
Also on display will be IDX Renditioner, IMSI/Design's break-through plug-in for photorealistic rendering in Google SketchUp.
IMSI/Design will be in booth 739 in the South Hall of the Moscone Center.

About DoubleCAD XT PRO
DoubleCAD XT PRO is the upgrade to DoubleCAD XT. It is an AutoCAD LT work-alike that goes beyond even AutoCAD LT® in terms of CAD capabilities, especially in the area of drafting and detailing. Most significantly, DoubleCAD XT PRO includes a powerful and innovative Drafting Palette that expedites the drafting-to-detailing process by creating fully associative, 2D views or hatched sections (even from xrefs). Other unique features include geometric and dimensional constraints, a range of intelligent (parametric) architectural objects such as compound walls, doors, windows, stairs, rails, slabs, and roof, Parametric Parts Manager, trace image to vector tools, and premium customer support. The product includes one of the widest varieties of file filters in the CAD industry, including support for .DWG (AutoCAD R14 to 2009), .SKP (Google SketchUp), .IGES, .3DM (Rhinoceros®), .3DS (Autodesk® 3ds Max®), .STL, and more. DoubleCAD XT PRO is $695 but through May 23, 2009 IMSI/Design will honor Autodesk's upgrade price of $575. For more information, visit http://www.DoubleCAD.com.
