A file is now written next to any imported IFC file called <name of ifc>.ifcSettings. This stores the state of the IFC data so that when the IFC file is reloaded at a later date, the same elements within the IFC are hidden or visible.
Speed of sectioning IFC data has been improved.
PDFs could no longer be imported because a file was missing from the installation.
Certain TIFFs would not read correctly
November 5th Update
IFC data can now be sectioned to extract setting out data.
The state of IFC data is remembered whist the Project is open.
Fixed an issue when digitising in a Section view in a Point cloud that prevented the point being locked to properly.
Plotting Cad Legends could cause a crash
November 2nd Release
IFC files can now be imported into the 3d Viewer. To import an IFC simply drag and drop the file from your file explorer into the 3d window. This video link explains more on what can be done with IFC data. https://youtu.be/7Zm34OYb0lA
For users of the Ribbon Bar interface. When in CAD a Properties pane will appear when an object is clicked on. This interface allows the properties of the selected entity to be edited on the fly.
For users in the Rail industry with Designer and the Point Cloud Feature extraction bolt on, a new Height and Stagger tool has been added. This video link https://youtu.be/xA1zGatULLs explains more about how to use it and what can be done with it. Note that this tool works hand in hand with a specialist Excel plugin that can be found in the Excel Plugins folder off of the n4ce Settings file shortcut that is placed on the desktop during an install. To install the add-in please double click on the HandSAddin.vsto file.
A new Image Place tool is available to allow a selected image to be fitted to a given baseline. So if an image appears in a CAD dwg, and a line drawn across its base. The same line can be used to place the image into the same coordinate system in n4ce.
In Pro and Designer the Line Extend tools now have an option to extend to meet CAD linework in a CAD backcloth.
A new option in the code table under the Lines tab allows you to ignore line features when calculating cross sections through features.
New option to adjust all horizontal angles on a setup so that the initial RO angle is set to a specific bearing.
# coding that allows multiple codes to be applied to the same point in the field are now supported on JXL, Magnet MXL, GeoMAX RAW and Leica ICON.
Import LandXML survey data improved for the Topcon style of XML export
Large numbers of Points can now be deleted from a DTM very quickly, without the system becoming unresponsive for a while as each point is removed and the DTM stitched up after.
The speed of thread contour calculations for grid models has been improved for large Lidar models as long as the option to Dissect the model was enabled when it was generated.
When calculating the intersection of two features, the option to only insert on the first has been added.
When importing from JXL, hash codes and coding conventions now followed when added after the Code on the logger. Needs the "No Dims Labels" Code Convention in the codetable.
A bug was found and fixed that would cause n4ce to crash randomly because a windows UI resource was not being properly released. Normally this would take at least a few hours to build up to cause the crash. But some users did experience it happing much sooner, for unknown reasons.
Volume tables could of had additional unwanted columns.
When importing images from PDF files, if the PDF was rotated, the image displayed in the dialog was not correct.
When importing from DWG files into CAD, the Import 3D Faces check box did not work correctly.
Bi-Arc fitting could come up with a divide by zero when curving points that a very close together.
When carrying out a single string volume using a grid model, the table preview crashed.
When densifying, if either point of a segment had a null height, interpolation of new points to a model did not take place
