Exactal announces the release of CostX 3.20

Following the successful launch of CostX 3.0 with 3D support in 2009, Exactal is pleased to announce the release of CostX® 3.20 for general availability. CostX® 3.20 is the latest release in the Exactal range of world-class digital measurement and estimating software and is the result of extensive feedback from customers. CostX® 3.20 features include the introduction of a unique new ‘Model Mapping’ function, further development of the 3D graphics capabilities as well as many improved user functions.

The ‘Model Mapping’ functions enable users to easily view, filter and sort the data in BIM models and automatically extract quantities in a format customised to the user’s needs. This world’s first initiative offers exciting new opportunities in enhanced BIM interoperability for the measurement and estimating disciplines.

CostX 3.20 also includes support for Bentley® Microstation DGN files and improved support for Autodesk® DWFX files allowing for the widest possible choice of input formats. Improvements to workbooks, sub-contractor comparisons and reporting are also part of this major release as well as full compatibility with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008.

Combined with the recent release of our new product range, including CostX® 2D and CostX® Takeoff 2D, the CostX® 3.20 family of products offer a wide choice of estimating solutions to fit every need and budget.
