Update history​

Open BIM Site

Improved editing of topographic surfaces

As of version 2024.f, Open BIM Site can save transformations that have been made on topographic surfaces.

In this way, when topographic surfaces come from WCS web services, they can be updated without losing any displacements or rotations made using the application's editing tools.

Improvements for reading points files in ARC/INFO format

In Open BIM Site version 2024.f, the following improvements have been made to the reading of ARC/INFO format files:

  • The reading of the "xllcenter" and "yllcenter" fields of the standard have been implemented and can be defined alternatively to the "xllcorner" and "yllcorner" parameters.

  • The reading of the "NODATA_value" field has been implemented to allow the definition of cells without a dimension value.

  • Files with ".asc" and ".csv" extensions can now be imported.

Obtaining the project site

The "Obtain the project site" option has been added to the "General parameters" editing window of the project. With this tool, users can assign the site data of the selected model to the general parameters using the "Geographic location and reference system" option available during the linking or updating of the BIMserver.center project. This makes it easier to work in Open BIM Site with models that already have geolocation data.

Shortcuts for all applications

CYPE apps have keyboard shortcuts common to all programs. In versions before 2024.e, each program displayed the keyboard shortcuts for each app via the "Search and activation of commands and options" in the top left-hand corner of the programs.

As of version 2024.e, the "Shortcuts for all applications" tab has been implemented in the dialogue box displayed when selecting this option and it shows all the keyboard shortcuts common to CYPE apps.

"EPSG Code" and "Cadastral reference" in the "General parameters".

The "EPSG code" and "Cadastral reference" fields have been added to the "General parameters" editing window of the project.

New WMS services for obtaining maps

As of version 2024.e, Open BIM Site allows maps to be obtained through WMS services from the following data sources:

Display floor view templates in the 3D view

For 3D views defined within applications with a 3D working environment, the "Show selected templates in each floor view" option has been added. When activated, the templates visible in each of the floor views will be displayed in the 3D view in the dimension corresponding to these views.

Managing the visibility of templates in the view configuration window

As of version 2024.c, applications with a 3D working environment can manage the visibility of templates from the view configuration panel. For this purpose, the "DXF-DWG templates" tab has been added, where a list of all the templates imported into the project is displayed together with a checkbox to indicate which ones should be shown in the view.

Installation modes (professional, campus, evaluation, temporary license)

All CYPE programs can be installed in their different versions (Professional Version, Evaluation Version, Campus Version, Temporary License). In previous versions, users could only choose the type of version to be installed from the classic CYPE menu.

As of version 2024.a, the selection of version types has been implemented in all CYPE programs on the BIMserver.center platform.

As of version 2024.d, this selection can be made during the installation of all CYPE programs, regardless of where they are downloaded.
