New Features

2020 Cap
2020 Cap now fully supports AutoCAD 2022, the most up-to-date and advanced version of AutoCAD available. AutoCAD 2022 brings updates the AutoCAD Web and Mobile apps. For more information on the new features available in AutoCAD 2022, please see AutoCAD 2022.

2020 Cap Complete
2020 Cap Complete receives new features in the CAD system. Some of the new additions in the Cap Complete CAD Engine include support for:

  • NUDGE – Nudge is a simple way to move objects by holding down the CTRL key and selecting the arrow keys on your keyboard. The object will move by pixels in the direction of the keyboard arrow you choose.
  • CLIP - clip-related commands like XClip have been integrated into one command. With the CLIP command, you can easily clip blocks, Xrefs, images, underlays, and viewports.
  • XREF - Xref management is much simpler. In one panel, you can preview and highlight files, check file information, and change the file path.
  • VPLAYER – Viewport layers can now emphasis specific layer properties (layer color, line type, line weight, etc.) for each viewport. VpLayers can be quickly selected with filters and reset.

For more information on these specific commands, please see the help file in Cap Complete.

2020 Visual Impression
2020 Visual Impression now allows users to move furniture and make height adjustments directly in their scene without having to return to their drawing application to do so. Users often find that a worksurface comes in too low or decide that they want to rotate a chair for a slightly more “lived in” look to their visualization. These types of minor adjustment can now be made in Visual Impression.

All Applications
All applications are updated to support the application of 2020 Visual Impression.
