*** CADPower V17.19 Update:

** Enhancement: CP_INIEDITOR (CADPower -> Miscellaneous -> File Management-> INI Editor):

The CP_INIEDITOR command has undergone some improvements. The 'Replace' button in the section data editing area has been improved, and it now applies the replace operation only to selected records. The 'Edit Section' dialog of the command now accepts multiple selection of records.

** Enhancement: CP_TILEPLACE (CADPower -> BOM/BOQ Tools -> Place tiles / XY sized panels): In the last update, we added 'Material Resources' to the BOM-Q Quantity takeoff tool. This was enabled in the CP_FLEXITILE tool. In this update, we have extended the same to the CP_TILEPLACE command also.

The updated dialog now allows to specify a tile as 3D, as well as attach material resources to the objects. There is also an option to automatically round off the Width and Height of a tile to the nearest specified value in X and Y.

The material resources and 3D information is stored in the tile object as XDATA.

** New videos added:

In the last few updates, a number of enhancements have been made pertaining to quantity take off, formwork placement and space planning tools for the engineering design.

Here is a summary of latest videos:
