Nearly two years of preparation and millions of dollars in product development have preceded the official commercial launch of GiveMePower Corporation and its PowerCAD CE - the world's first full-powered 2 and 3 dimensional CAD line for the exploding world of Windows CE-based portable/wireless computing.
For the first time, full-featured CAD processing is available directly in the field or on the shop floor, allowing billions of existing DWG, DXF and FLX designs and drawings to be remotely viewed, edited or created on Pocket PCs or hand-held PCs running Microsoft's Windows CE mobile operating system.
Three PowerCAD CE versions, PowerCAD CE Viewer($99), PowerCAD CE Classic ($249) and PowerCAD CE Pro ($495) allow users to view, mark-up, edit, create and collaborate on designs and drawings using portable/wireless devices running Microsoft's Windows CE operating system.
PowerCAD CE utilizes Microsoft's ActiveSync system, letting users transfer data, wirelessly if properly equipped, to and from companion desktop/laptop networks in real time.
Leveraging core PowerCAD desktop technologies, PowerCAD CE has been optimized for high speed operation on leading Pocket PCs such as Compaq's iPAQ, Hewlett Packard's Jornada, and Casio's Casseopedia, as well as emerging tablet size hand-held devices from companies such as Siemens, Husky and Advantech which offer long battery life, high resolution screens, rugged design and built-in wireless networking capabilities.
With up to 200 intuitive and industry compliant commands, PowerCAD CE runs as a completely self-contained portable CAD system, or serves as a perfect mobile extension for PowerCAD Pro, AutoCAD and other leading desktop systems that utilize industry standard DWG, DXF or FLX file formats.
For the ultimate portable CAD experience, PowerCAD CE Pro features advanced 3D functions and complete system customization using LISP and C/C++ programming. PowerCAD's unique Desktop and Menu Editor (DME) allows users of any skill level to easily tailor the default PowerCAD CE Pro user interface to precisely fit their requirements.
PowerCAD CE is one of numerous value-priced desktop/mobile CAD products and software developer systems scheduled for future release by GiveMePower.
