RIB Releases iTWO costX® 7.0

RIB is pleased to announce that the latest version of iTWO costX® is now available for download.

Estimators and cost consultants the world over count upon iTWO costX® for their takeoff and estimating, and Version 7.0 introduces many new features and enhancements to support advanced workflows.

The release is headlined by a host of interoperability improvements, including support for Revit 2021 and 2022 file formats. Multi-threaded loading for RVT properties has also been introduced to greatly reduce loading times, while new object properties are now supported. IFC file support has also been enhanced with wireframe geometries now available, in addition to new IFC entities and colouring improvements.

Zones functionality has been significantly revamped in iTWO costX® 7.0 with the new ability to assign default Zones to drawings, and even lock them to ensure that the correct Zone selection is always in place. In addition, Zone filters have been incorporated into the Workbook View, which are maintained when dragging-and-dropping Dimension Groups to enhance the visibility and management of Zoned quantities. A Description field has also been added to better manage complex Zone workflows, while a host of other upgrades have been applied. The popular Variables functionality of iTWO costX® has also been enhanced in Version 7.0 with a new Scope field for greater control of takeoff workflows.

Client feedback is integral to the long-term development of iTWO costX®, and users have asked for a wider selection of samples and templates to get started with iTWO costX® faster than ever. To support this need, iTWO costX® 7.0 introduces a direct download portal where users can access extensive samples and template files that have been tailored for each world region.

A long list of other usability enhancements and general refinements have been applied with this product release, including random Dimension Group colours and the ability to expand and contract all Dimension Groups.
