PRO TECHnology has recently become an ‘Authorised Autodesk Value Added Reseller’, and now offers Autodesk’s integrated architectural CAD products for architects in the UAE on all Apple devices.
Designed for engineers, architects and other CAD industry professionals, PRO TECHnology has brought the products into the country to meet the demand for more cost effective and resource-efficient buildings and infrastructures in the UAE.
“Despite the financial turmoil’s impact, UAE infrastructure still requires flexible technology tools for building information modeling that can help them yield cost effective outputs as well as solve all the obstacles faced in the stages of design and construction,” said Jamal Maraqa, managing director, PRO TECHnology Co LLC.
“Autodesk is making significant new advancements in design technology and what was available on PCs until now, will now be made available on the Apple platform,” he added.
AutoCAD for Mac has a user-friendly interface and offers many of the AutoCAD features to Mac customers.
It includes graphical browsing of design files with Cover Flow and use of multi-touch gestures on Mac notebooks, Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad for pan and zoom features.
User experience design patterns, such as the visual approach to drawing and layout management, have also been included in the program.
Autodesk also announced the AutoCAD WS mobile application, a new app for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch that will allow users to edit and share their AutoCAD designs in the field.
