Anaheim CA, May 19, 2000:  F I T, Inc. announced today the latest release of their flagship product - CADVANCE 2000.  CADVANCE has maintained a loyal worldwide user-base since its inception in 1982, and has come a long way since being the first true Windows-based A/E/C CAD application.  Having acquired CADVANCE in 1995, F I T has since developed several add-on applications for CADVANCE to provide users with more power and a greater range of usability. 

 “One of our main goals as a company is to listen to our users, gather and consolidate the information provided by them, and try to provide the most effective solutions possible.” said Takashi Furukawa, president of F I T, Inc.

Key Features and Significant Enhancements:

  • Reads and Writes DWG/DXF files

  • Auto Snap to objects

  • Dynamic Pan and Zoom

  • Unlimited number of Reference files (DWG/DXF/VWF)

  • Movable, dockable and user definable menu and tool bar

  • Unlimited number of menu and tool bars

  • Plot logging

  • Spell check

  • Key input command

  • New OpenGL 3D module in addition to standard CADVANCE 3D

  • Fully compliant with other applications in the Windows environment

  • Customizable

  • Plus too many more to mention

Listening to user feedback has helped formulate v2000 into a faster, more intuitive program with many sophisticated features providing greater flexibility, customization and productivity.  Combined with the programs inherent ease-of-use, CADVANCE continues to provide a real professional CAD solution. 

“We are very pleased with the results achieved through bringing our users into the ‘information gathering’ stage of development.  They have been instrumental throughout the development process and we are grateful for their strong support in terms of their time and efforts,” says Takashi Furukawa.

Interested parties may contact F I T to receive a full-version evaluation CD for a 30-day trial.
