Key Summary of Improvements

A major new feature of Digital Project V1R5 is that is now compatible with CATIA V5R22 (version 5 release 22), and GT reports that this means it delivers a smoother experience when working on projects that are of any size–implying very large projects. There are key enhancements to wall materials providing for more accurate quantity estimates and streamline workflow. The user interface has been added to manage custom Microsoft Excel spreadsheet locations.

Additionally, Digital Project Viewer has been renamed to Digital Project Manager, enabling project managers, estimators, and construction professionals to fully support project attribute editing and essential tools for performing quality control checks, such as clash detection.

Thirdly, Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) for Digital Project V1R5 provides greater support for industry and government standards. UTF-8 has been added to support importing and exporting properties.

Other improvements include:

  • Exporting of MEP system routing elements
  • Elements retaining their names from Digital Project
