WHAT's NEW

CUT/COPY/PASTE FROM 1 MODEL TO THE NEXT
Sharing items inside a project or from one project to another is important. Now you can either cut or copy an item from one model and paste it into another part of the model or onto another model. This is a great tool with the aim of added efficiency for the user. How better to save time then to be able to take items and reuse them in new models without the need to redo. Great new tool for quicker modeling when you are busy!

STEP BACK - ROOF POINTS
Putting a roof on a model using the “Picking Points” option now gets easier with the ability to Step Back. The latest version now includes the “Step Back” option in case you want to repick a point that you need to change. This is a quicker way to get the roof constructed than having to redo all the points. The perfect tool to ensure more precision in your work.
