  • New option Riser determines direction of schematic view. For the selected option, the laying direction of branches on the schematic view takes into account the viewpoint indicator (the front of the element) of the Riser. Program locates the branches departing from the Riser on the appropriate side of the Riser. Control of the option is available in the Data table for the item Starting point

  • Ability to impose dimensions in Data table for Rectangle and Ellipse elements
  • The new window Elements layers allows to control the scope of elements exported to DWG / DXF formats, generally at the level of entire editing ranges, and more specifically at the level of individual elements
  • The new Prefix for layers option allows to give an individual prefix to layers created by InstalSystem 5 and exported to DWG format
  • Possibility to choose the option Export labels as blocks or Export labels as basic elements for drawings exported to DWG / DXF format
  • The exported drawings to the dwg / dxf formats contain all the graphics. Elements such as LogoStructure cross section drawingManifold tableMixer / control unit chart are currently not exported to separate files when exporting
IFC interpretacja danych budynku

IFC (BIM) building data interpretation

  • Support for import and interpretation of Curtain Wall element (see more Base module) (watch the movie)
  • Optimizing the interpretation of IFC elements to native InstalSoft elements:
    • Improved interpretation (Creates walls from an IFC file function)
    • Improved interpretation (Creates roofs from an IFC file function)
    • Support for interpretation (Creates windows, doors, and wall openings from an IFC file function) of the Roof window element
    • Diagnostics of ifcWall diamond-shaped interpretation, the Diagnostics window indicates elements that have not been interpreted

IFC (BIM) building structure elements export / IFC (BIM) heating/cooling system export / IFC (BIM) tap water system export

  • Support for exporting the Curtain Wall element (see more Base module) (watch the movie)
  • Parameterization of the IFC4 export of pipe-run(s) from the scope Heating systemsCooling systemsWater supply systems. The Pipe-run element is exported together with:
    • Technical parameters
    • Catalogue code element
    • Calculation parameters
  • Added the filtering condition for the export of elements to IFC4 in the IFC file export - Elements layers window:
    • Automatic selection / deselection of elements that are common to another scope of the project
    • Depending on the configuration of the license for precise control of the actually exported items
  • Optimization of the result files for the selected Export labels to IFC file function

Sewage systems

  • Publication of the first version of the commercial module Sewage systems, covering the design of gravity sewage systems for domestic use. This version allows you to design installations with direct stack ventilation and ventilation manifolds. Bypass ventilation is scheduled to be introduced in future publications as a free update. Also, the next publications will introduce full control over the configuration of the pipe-run nodes, i.e. where they are connected (watch the video)
