Open BIM Layout

Update history

The dimensions defined in each sheet are associated with the geometry of the elements of the scene that have been taken as a reference. This association allows the dimensions of the model to be automatically readjusted in the event of changes in the dimensions of the model.

In the particular case of the tags, this association was already maintained in previous versions, except in the particular case of the tags of the holes in CYPE Connect. As of version 2022.g, this association is maintained, allowing the directrix of the tag to be moved when the position of the relevant hole changes. This is a special case, as the hole itself is not an object in the scene.

The option to export the 3D scenes in sheets in vector graphics format has been implemented in version 2022.g. Up to version 2022.f, these scenes were exported as raster images.

From the scene editing panel, the line style to be used for vector graphics format export can be configured.

From the 'Print' dialogue box, the scene views can be exported:

  • As raster image (option used until this improvement was implemented).
  • As vector image (when possible).

The latter option must be selected to export in vector graphics format. In particular, this explains the "when possible" note in the option, a scene view is exported as a vector image if two requirements are met:

  • The projection defined for the view is axonometric.
  • The colour mode is monochrome.

As an example, there are two PDF sheets that can be downloaded, which have been exported in vector graphics format.

The interface for selecting the reference system of the job available during the linking process with the platform project has been modified. Now, via the "Reference system selection" button located at the top of the window, the base reference system to be used is chosen. This displays a tree with the reference systems available in the BIM project from the contributions that were previously marked for import.

Like in previous versions, once the base reference system has been selected, users can modify the position of the local reference system for the new model that will be created with the active application.

The following improvements affecting profile fill for scene views have been included:

  • New patterns for profile fills: line hatch and cross hatch.
  • The program allows profile fills to be associated with each type of architectural element.
  • Profile fills are generated from the fill styles.
  • Profile fills can be applied to all scenes as a whole or individually for each scene.


As of version 2022.b, applications with 3D drawing surroundings allow a viewing volume to be defined from the geometric envelope of the scene content. The arrows allow the viewing volume to be adjusted by moving their faces and the arches allow the viewing volume to be adjusted by means of 6 clips planes.

Version 2021.g of CYPE’s programs is a closing version of the 2021 version.

As well as the new features and improvements expressly indicated in each version of CYPE software, process optimisation involving internal updates for all our programs is normally included. In each revision, all programs are systematically checked and changes are made to improve their performance, therefore, we recommend that our users (in this case those of v.2021) always update their version to the latest one, regardless of the country for which they are using CYPE software or the language in which it is installed.

  • Dimension: define user value
    The user can manually change the dimension value by using the Edit button, activating the "check" in "user-defined value" in the edit panel.
  • Dimension: choose distance
    The program offers the possibility of measuring the "real distance" or the "apparent distance". The real distance allows sloped planes to be measured from a floor or elevation view.
  • Print with alerts
    It is possible to print even if there are error alerts due to elements located outside the sheet area.
