*** CADPower V 17.05 Update:

** New family of commands added in the BOQ section.

** New command CP_PARTASSIGN (CADPower -> BOM/BOQ Tools -> Parts Management -> Assign part names): The CP_PARTASSIGN command assigns a part name to selected objects. This is a simple data assignment tool that attaches a string (we call it Part Name) to one or more objects. When you have a drawing with multiple objects tagged with part names, it is used to create part labels, count them and present in a simple table of part names versus number of times it occurs. This forms the basis of a simple quantity table.

** New command CP_PARTUNASSIGN (CADPower -> BOM/BOQ Tools -> Parts Management -> Un-Assign part names): The CP_PARTUNASSIGN command removes part names attached to objects by the CP_PARTASSIGN command.

** New command CP_PARTLABEL (CADPower -> BOM/BOQ Tools -> Parts Management -> Label part names): The CP_PARTLABEL command creates a text label that represent the part name attached to selected objects. It is created at the centroidal location of the object with a user-defined text height.

** New command CP_PARTCOUNT (CADPower -> BOM/BOQ Tools -> Parts Management -> Count part names): The CP_PARTCOUNT command summarizes the occurences of part names attached to selected objects and writes them down in a simple 2-column table. The same is exported to a CSV file to further action in Excel.

*** GeoTools V 17.05 Update:

** New command added: GT_DEFODATT (GeoTools -> AutoCAD Map Tools -> Object Data -> Define Block (with attributes) from object table data: The GT_DEFODATT command is the opposite of GT_DEFATTOD. It takes an object data table and creates attributes out of the field names. You can create a block using those attributes alone or add some graphical objects also.
