RIB Releases iTWO costX® 6.9

RIB is proud to announce that the latest version of iTWO costX® (formerly known as CostX®) is now available for download. iTWO costX® 6.9 is built to support users striving to evolve their estimating, offering a range of new features and functionalities as well as a refined user experience.

This release is headlined by a completely revamped user interface that provides a contemporary look and feel for the platform. RIB’s development teams have carefully redesigned the style, icons, buttons and menus used in iTWO costX® for clearer and easier navigation, while working to ensure that the platform’s familiar user experience is not compromised. iTWO costX® 6.9 will also introduce some minor visual branding updates, in line with our new corporate identity as an RIB Software company.

New estimating features available in iTWO costX® 6.9 include the ability to create an unlimited number of Custom Quantities within Dimension Groups, allowing users to capture numerous calculated quantities from a single takeoff. A new Dimension Cutouts feature supports easy and direct deduction of smaller areas from a large area dimension, while automatic unit conversion is now available between fields for quantities referenced in dimension group expressions.

Product interoperability has been further developed with iTWO costX® 6.9, as headlined by the addition of native support for loading and automatically extracting quantities from Revit (RVT) files. The SketchUp 2020 file format has also been added, while languages that read from right to left are now viewable in the drawing window and on published drawings. iTWO costX® 6.9 also supports direct integration with other web-based solutions from RIB, including our iTWO benchmark conceptual estimating software and the iTWO 4.0 enterprise platform. Data can be efficiently shared between iTWO costX® 6.9 and these platforms, with data refinements able to be made using either software option.

Several other additions and improvements are available with this product release. The iTWO costX® 6.9 release notes can be downloaded here. RIB have released a promotional video that details what is available in the new release, as well as an iTWO costX® demonstration webinar that covers the new additions in-depth.
