Version 24.2

    BEXEL CDE Publisher

    • Resolved issue with crashing QTO publishing process when there was duplicated quantity for a part of the QTO structure.

      Cost

      • Within the Cost Estimate window, the capability to create new Text Custom Properties (User Defined) and input their values has been enabled. Simply right-click, choose “New Column,” then “Text,” and right-click on the cell to enter the desired value (Right-click -> New Column -> Text; right-click on the cell where you want to enter the value -> Edit Property).
      • Within the Cost Estimate window, the export and import of Text Custom Properties (User Defined) have been facilitated through an Excel template (Export -> Export User Defined Properties; Import -> Import User Defined Properties).
      • The auto-assign process is optimized so now the process takes 50% less time.
      • Introduced an option to export Cost Item Descriptions when exporting Cost Versions to Excel (Cost Estimate -> Export).
      • Added options within the Cost Estimate window for “Select All Children (Including Self)” and “Select Cost Assignments” (Right-click on a row -> Select -> All Children (Including Self); Right-click on a row -> Select -> Cost Assignments).
      • In the Cost Editor, users now have the ability to choose whether the “Wrap Text” option is active at the column level.(Previously, this option was enabled by default, and users couldn’t modify it). To access the option, right-click on the column header and select the “Wrap Text” option.
      • Added the option to adjust all column widths to the column content width for display in both Cost Editor and Cost Estimate windows. To access this option, right-click on the column header and choose “Best Fit All.”
      • When adding a User Defined column in the Cost Estimate window, the column is now added next to the column on which the user performed right-click and add (link) and as the last column in the Cost Editor window.
      • When performing Auto-Assign Cost Items to Selected Elements, the message “Some Element(s) could not be Assigned” appears unnecessarily in some situations.

        Clash Detection

          IFC Exporter

          • Implemented the ability to export only necessary buildings when exporting part of model to IFC (BEX Logo -> Export to IFC -> Filter: Selected Elements, Visible Elements), eliminating unnecessary export of all buildings from model.

                        • Resolved the issue that was causing the update of the project crashes if some elements contained in Schedule Tasks were deleted during the update.
