Release: 1.6 beta

  • Updated pipe palette to indicate current pipe class being input
  • Pipe polyline widths should work with drawings with inch units
  • Implemented metric drawings (needs more testing)
  • Renamed data text files, breaking them down into smaller more readable files.
  • Drawing a sleeve on a pipe sizes that sleeve as twice the diameter of the picked pipe
  • Sleeves are drawn under the pipe they contain.
  • Updates to Hunter I-80s and MP815s.
  • Bug fixes in settings dialog.
  • Early implementation of the planting plan tool.
  • Updated dynamic sprinkler layout to improve swapping existing sprinklers on the fly.

  • Plant form now allows user to pick a block from the drawing for individual plants.
  • Added support for BricsCAD v20.
  • Implemented MLeader flagnotes.
  • Inserting valves on mainline no longer breaks mainline, mainline is only broken at tees, demands, and size changes.
