*** Blog coverage:

*** CADPower V 17.06 Update:

** Enhanced command CP_PARTASSIGN (CADPower -> BOM/BOQ Tools -> Parts Management -> Assign part names): The CP_PARTASSIGN command introduced in V 17.05 has received good feedback and requests for enhancements from users. In this version, we have combined some of the functionality available in CP_TC command and provide the ability to assign multiple selected objects with incrementing number/character labeling. You can now run CP_TC command, set the parameters exactly as you desire and then use CP_PARTASSIGN command to take those parameters and do labeling of multiple objects in one go.

** Enhanced command CP_CONVERTTO3DFORMS (Menu: CADPower -> Modeller -> Convert-To-3D Forms): The CP_CONVERTTO3DFORMS command is used to build 3d forms easily from 2d geometry. You can extrude open and closed lines, arcs, circles, polylines and splines into 3D and build architectural forms with ease. There is an option to create a floor-base as well as flat or sloping roofs.

The command works identically in AutoCAD and BricsCAD. In the BIM version of BricsCAD, the floor and roof entities are classified as BIM entities and the form is classified as walls.

** Enhanced command: CP_TXTFILTER (Menu: CADPower -> Text -> Editing -> Text Filter): The text search criteria in the CP_TXTFILTER command has been improved to handle wild-card characters like #, @, ., [, ], ~, ? or -.

** Bug fix: In AutoCAD version 2010 & 2011, a crash was noticed when CADPower was trying to hide or show the Viewport toolbar. This has been fixed now.

*** GeoTools V 17.06 Update:

** New command added: (GEOL_MININGSYMBOLS @ GeoTools -> Mining & Geological Tools -> Mining Symbols): A new command called GEOL_MININGSYMBOLS offers over 200+ mining and geological symbols in GeoTools. The library covers typical symbols for annotations, symbology and machines, vehicles used in the mining and geological industry.
