Exactal Releases CostX® 6.7

Exactal is excited to announce that CostX® 6.7, the latest version of CostX®, has just been released. CostX® 6.7 contains many great new features and capabilities that will be extremely valuable to clients, in particular support for deploying CostX® in the Cloud.

Using an innovative plugin architecture, CostX® now fully supports native cloud storage for drawing files, with initial support for Amazon S3, Google Drive, and Microsoft OneDrive. Additional cloud storage providers will be supported in future CostX® versions.

CostX® 6.7 also introduces a new Auto Count feature, allowing bulk counting of symbols on drawings by pattern matching to a selected symbol. Previously CostX® supported bulk counting of block symbols on DWG drawings, as well as bulk counting on BIM drawings, and now there is also support for image recognition for counting symbols on PDFs or raster drawings.

There are also many other great new features available too. Plus, CostX® still contains world-leading BIM compatibility, 2D takeoff, live-linked workbooks, customisable reports, and more in the one program; which is why it is used by more and more companies every day around the world.

The CostX® 6.7 release notes can be downloaded here. To see more on CostX® in the Cloud, we’ve released a video which can be viewed here. Cloud deployment guidance notes for several major platforms are also now available. Plus, we’ve released a webinar that covers the new features in depth as part of our CostX® Coffee Break series.
