New features of CityCAD 2.6
March 21st, 2014 by Susan Smith
Holistic City Limited has just announced their latest release of CityCAD, version 2.6.
Several sharp improvements characterize this release as well as stability and performance upgrades:
- New samples have been added to the settings library (different kinds of residential and mixed-use blocks with a variety of detailed building perimeter objects) to make it easier to get up and running quickly.
- New mixed-use floors within buildings and mixed-use perimeter blocks. You can now create new land use subdivisions and specify a percentage for each one. All of the data will then be accounted for in the usual way.
- New variable-scope custom parameters. You can now specify this and values can only be entered for that parameter if an appropriate element is selected.
- New route and object libraries. Holistic City is also reworking the online resources so that more objects such as rail stations and viaducts, street furniture and generic buildings commonly found in cities can be downloaded directly into your CityCAD model.
