For first time, AutoCAD developers can extend existing add-ons directly into the field or to the shop floor on mobile/wireless Pocket PCs.

GiveMePower Corporation will provide its PowerCAD software development systems free to existing AutoCAD developers, allowing thousands of software add-ons written for use with AutoCAD to be migrated and sold as productivity enhancing plug-ins for GiveMePower's PowerCAD Pro Windows-based computer-aided design (CAD) system and the company's PowerCAD CE Pro portable CAD system, the world's first full-featured 2 and 3-dimensional CAD for Microsoft's Windows CE mobile/wireless handheld computing platform.

Third party developers create add-ons that make CAD software work more efficiently, enhancing productivity for millions of end users involved in the design and manufacture of virtually any man-made product or structure. Unlike competing systems, PowerCAD enables AutoCAD developers to leverage their existing customization and Lisp/C++ programming techniques, greatly reducing the effort required to port their applications to PowerCAD.

And for the first time, AutoCAD developers can extend existing add-ons directly into the field or to the shop floor on mobile/wireless Pocket PC's such as Compaq's iPAQ and Dell's Axim, or newly emerging wireless tablet PC's such as Advantech's MobiPanel, using PowerCAD CE as the base CAD platform.

PowerCAD products offer affordable pricing, simplified operation, and exceptional compatibility with industry leader AutoCAD. PowerCAD can be implemented as a low-cost desktop alternative to more expensive and complex systems, or as a perfectly synced mobile extension for existing desktop CAD systems such as AutoCAD, PowerCAD, or other systems that support industry-standard DWG, DXF, and FLX file formats.
