New Novapoint 18.10 64-bit

30 November, 2010

Novapoint 18.10 is now released and has the same functionality as Novapoint 18.00.FP1c with some exceptions. The recommended platforms for Novapoint 18.10 are 64 bit AutoCAD, AutoCAD Map 3D and AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 and 2011.

In Novapoint Base the function Draw Contours from Grid model… has been disabled. This will be fixed in FP1.

In Novapoint Water & Sewer the configuration database had to be changed. In Novapoint 17.30 32 bit and 18.10 32 the Novapoint WS configuration database will also be changed so all three versions will have the same configuration database. Novapoint 17.30 and 18.10 32 bit) will be released in the next few weeks.

In Novapoint Landscape Product Explore has been disabled (also due to database problems) and an alternative solution will be released in 18.10 64 bit FP1.

In Novapoint Tunnel the function 3D Triangulation is disabled. This will be fixed in FP1.

Note: we do not recommend that a 32 bit Novapoint and a 64 bit Novapoint are installed together. This is not tested and may cause problems.

New Novapoint Virtual Map 6.0.2: enjoy the power of 64 bits

18 November, 2010

First 64bit Novapoint application is released; Novapoint Virtual Map 6.0.2 64bit standalone. At same time a new 32bit standalone version is released as well.

This version introduces two major new features:

– Native 64bit support, solving many memory usage problems with big models.

– LandXML import, allowing integration of surface and pipeline models from Novapoint, Civil3D, Microstation and other LandXML compatible design packages to Virtual Map models or just review LandXML files in 3d

Standalone version is meant to be used together with Novapoint 17.20FP2f or newer or with plain AutoCAD installations. Older versions of Novapoint don’t support VM6 (module loader doesn’t recognize VM6 and loads VM5 instead).

This version will be also released as part of Novapoint 18.10 installation package (32bit and 64bit). For Novapoint users it is recommended to wait for 18.10 releases to get integrated installation of Virtual Map.
