Reducers can have branches routed from the side
Lets you quickly and efficiently add a branch to the side of a reducer adding the tap connection for you
Center of Gravity calculations can be completed within a single dialog box for all components types
Allows you to quickly and efficiently calculate center of gravity for all components in a drawing, without needing to manually combine individual component type center of gravities

Gaskets, Bolts, and Welds have been enhanced for appearance
Gives the ability to view how a model would look with realistic gaskets, bolts, and welds appearance
Custom Data can be added at most levels in Spec Editor and components can be isolated by Custom Data or changed in Plant
Custom Data fields and values can now be used and edited in the model directly and exported to the model database whereas previously they could only be used in long description/short description/tag formats
Dynamic Pipe supports importing and creating of new pipe supports
Allows you to add supports to a specification and it makes it easier to move and manage pipe supports. Legacy pipe supports can also be converted automatically. Tee supports are a new capability with this functionality as well.
Import and export of Description formats
Lets you move description formats between specifications for quicker and easier usage. This saves the user time because they don’t have to recreate these descriptions and helps with standardization across projects in the organization
Import of Smart Plant Reference Data specifications
Gives you the ability to use converted Smart Plant Reference Data specification data to draw components in CADWorx. This helps you by making it easier for Smart Plant Reference Data users to quickly import data into CADWorx and begin drawing
and much more!!
