What is ProgeCAD?
ProgeCAD is Progesoft’s premier product, marketed as progeCAD Professional, progeCAD Architecture and iCADMac for Apple Mac users. ProgeCAD is very compatible with AutoCAD but competitively priced and offers perpetual licensing, which is no longer offered by AutoDesk. The perpetual license does not require the customer to upgrade within a set period. If automatic upgrades are required, the customer can buy the annual maintenance plan, Icare Services.
