GiveMePower Corporation announced a scheduled November 19, 2002 official launch of PowerCAD Architect, a user-friendly software system that automates 2 and 3-dimensional design for small, medium and large-scale enterprises involved in residential building design and light commercial construction.

Targeting architects, drafters, developers, design consultants, builders, builder supply houses, renovation companies, professional hobbyists and educators seeking a cost-effective, AutoCAD(r)-compatible design system, PowerCAD Architect retails for $995, less than 25% of the cost of its closest rivals in terms of power according to the Company. To encourage sales, GiveMePower is offering a special $795 introductory price through the end of November, 2002.

Offering flexible interfaces for novice, advanced and AutoCAD familiar users, PowerCAD Architect uses a single model approach to automatically create and dynamically link intelligent 2 and 3D elements such as walls, windows, doors, kitchens, bathrooms, and roofs. Results are saved in native AutoCAD file formats for direct sharing with AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architectural Desktop, and other systems that support industry standard file formats.
