  • Added the option to report in the DXF the Bounding Box of the face.

    • Area, Bound Area, External and Internal Perimeter, Bend info
    • In the Face to DXF tool, this information is exported only if the face is from a developed sheetmetal.
  • Added the option to also export a PDF.

Improved the dialog box for saving unlinked elements. Added dialog box for Find/Replace text and filling in the grid using formulas (to generate new Names and PartNumber).

Detect Holes

New tool to detect and convert holes to editable Intellishape holes.

Library Data Manager

Adding the PartNumber field to the setting of pipe data files.

Added ability to paste fields from Excel; only one column can be pasted at a time. (If multiple col-umns are selected in Excel, the action is not performed).

Export 3D Elements

Improved command, whit the addition of the option to overwrite the file if it is already there.


Added option for DWG/DXF, to print Model or Paper Space. Furthermore, added option to print Black&White the selected drawings.


For PDF files, added to export in Black&White format. Added option to exporting Zero-Width Lines for all the formats.


The PRO-Active Manager tool has been enhanced and improved with new functions; improved import and export function of settings.

Shell Steels Surface

The option for surface calculation processes “hollow” Steels, so that the inner surface is not calculated. In addition, the unit of measurement can be defined in the option box of BOMConfig.

Length of Sweep Pipes

The sweep calculation option now also calculates pipe lengths. So now it is possible to have a BOM containing the lengths of pipes and bends. A BOM Configuration, named Pipes_Config.dat is included in the setup.

Added option to export formulas in the BOM configuration as formulas in Excel cells.
