Bricsys invites the media to Gent, by Ralph Grabowski:

As a BricsCAD distributor for India, I think the press meet is a great opportunity for the entire BricsCAD eco-system of resellers and partners to re-connect and communicate with clients, understand and validate the progress in the current version and get a feel on the direction going forward. We look forward to many such interactions and wish Bricsys good luck in many more such engagements.

*** CADPower & GeoTools V 18.02 Update:

** Enhanced Command: CP_XTRACT (CADPower -> Miscellaneous -> CAD Procedures -> First Set -> Extract from Xref): The CP_XTRACT command is used to extract entities from within a block or an XREF object. This command has been enhanced and improved significantly. You can now extract from XREF/blocks which have been scaled and rotated as well. The only limitation is that you can extract from non-uniform scaled blocks.

It is also possible to place the extracted object either at the original location or move it interactively to a new location. This behavior is controlled by a new command called CP_XTRACT_SETTINGS, which is not available on the command line. Upon running CP_XTRACT command, the availability of this command is mentioned through a command line message. While using CADPower-GeoTtools, it always helps to keep an eye on the command line for important informative messages.

** Enhanced command: (GeoTools -> Annotation -> Label contour polylines): The GT_CONTLABEL command now has enhanced conditional labeling capbilities. You can now label the contour based on multiples of an elevation value. For example, if you have 1m contours and want to label only the 10m contours, you can specify 10 as the multiple value and only 0, 10, 20 and so on... will be labeled. This extends the elevation check conditional labeling functionality further. In the earlier versions, you could label the contours along a given range of elevations.
