*** CADPower V 17.08 Update:

** New command added: CP_SCLFLIP (Menu: CADPower -> Blocks -> Block-related -> Interactive XY Scale Flip): The CP_SCLFLIP command is used to flip the scale factors of a block. It starts by applying the scale factor +X and +Y, where X and Y are the existing scale factors. In subsequent iterations, it applies the (+X and -Y), (-X and +Y) and (-X and -Y) scale factors and offers to visualize the block in different orientations until you accept.

** Enchanced command (CP_MODTXT: Menu: CADPower -> Text -> Editing -> Globally modify TEXT/MTEXT): The command now accepts attribute definitions also.

** Bug fix CP_BOM (CADPower -> BOM/BOQ Tools -> Create Bill of Materials/Quantities):

During the Import of Excel data into CAD, the title was not imported. This has been fixed now.

** Enhanced command (Menu: CADPower -> More Options -> Specific Command Help): We are in the process of ceating videos for every CADPower command. Some have been already created and are now automatically opened in YouTube along with the HTM help when you run the CP_CMDHELP command.

Video tutorials are now available for the following CADPower commands:

*** GeoTools V 17.08 Update:

** New command added: (Menu: GeoTools -> Mining & Geological Tools -> Determine Strike & Dip [3-Point problem solution]):

Finding strike and dip of a bed of mine is the most fundamental task in any mining and geological exploration.

The GEOL_3POINT command finds strike and dip by solving the 3 point problem and is now available in GeoTools. In this first version, the dip and strike of the plane is computed from the 3 points and dispayed on the command line.

** Enhanced command (Menu: GeoTools -> More Options -> Specific Command Help): We are in the process of ceating videos for every GeoTools command. Some have been already created and are now automatically opened in YouTube along with the HTM help when you run the GT_CMDHELP command.
