*** CADPower V 13.01 update:

New command(s) added:

** CP_VISIBLE : (CADPower -> Miscellaneous -> CAD Procedures -> Change object visibility):

The CP_VISIBLE command converts CAD graphical objects from a visible state to invisible state and back. The visibility state is set on the command line by means of the (V)isible or (I)nvisible keyword.

** CP_FINDENCLOSED : (CADPower -> Selection -> Find points enclosed within 3dface space)

The CP_FINDENCLOSED command is a means to select point objects which lie within the space bounded by selected 3dface objects.

This command was created in response to the requirements of the mining industry where the mining shafts and cut-outs are often modeled using 3dface objects, with a lot of neighborhood points representing data captured from various sources. This tool helps to select all such point features which lie inside or outside the space bounded by the 3dface objects.

*** GeoTools V 13.01 update:

** GT_BRGROUND : (GeoTools -> Civil Tools -> Round off bearings): The GT_BRGROUND command is used to round off bearings to a specified precision. Usually the bearings are represented in typical styles like : 50-23-24, 149d49'32", 38° 55' 46", N 149° 41' 27" E, S 85d27' E and so on. The GT_BRGROUND command works on the seconds part of the bearing and rounds it off to the nearest number of specified seconds.

** The GeoTools and CADPower user manuals have been updated and now show exactly the same commands and screenshots as you see in CAD.
