November 2022

Enhancements (V2022.318.1000)


  • The Model BOM tab controls and data grids have been placed under 5 collapsable sections. Use the section header chevrons to control visibility.

  • The Snapshop Reporting and Control section has been updated. A new SOCKETWorx button was added alongside the Snapshot button and two compare processor buttons.
    Easily create bulk material take-off workbooks against current models or differences between them and snapshots using the compare processors.

  • The new SOCKETWorx button connects CWX and P3D take-offs with its Parts Catalog.  The SOCKETWorx Parts Catalog is derived from CWX and P3D piping specs.   MTOWorx will compare parts in the 3D model against these catalog parts.  It inspects for missing part numbers and discrepancies between sizes and long descriptions.  This report is obtained by clicking the QC button.
    In this example report, CABLE TRAY and 'MY BALL VALVE....' parts were not found in the SOCKETWorx Parts Catalog.

  • Save MTOWorx Snapshot to a local disk, or SOCKETWorx.
    CUT and TOTAL snapshots export together and their default filenames can be overwritten.
    Project Work Orders, and Material Snapshot stage for advanced material processing in SOCKETWorx.

  • AutoCAD Plant 3D steel is being accumulated within the Steel SINGLE and CUT tables.  

  • Add CWExploded Usershapes to the MTOWorx collection routine, so they will accumulate in BOMs.   This overcomes the CWX Plant limitation and helps with the ELECTROWorx workaround when trimming cable tray becomes necessary.

  • Set Groups and Expressions using the new COLUMN header filter controls.
    Consider this simple use case where a list of pipes and nipples is needed by LineTag+ Spool.
    In this use case, PIPE and NIPPLES are returned because Long Description Start with these values as set by the piping specs. But, so do Pipe Shoes, so a new group was added to remove those rows containing SHOE. Don't forget to save your changes, so they persist the next time views are visited.

    Pro Tip:
  • Above the table is a new Search Box.  User this feature to find and highlight values.  The up/down controls will find the next row and more options to the right allow for setting things like case matching and what columns to include in search criteria.

  • Coming soon, but available upon request are WorxProjects.  
    ECE has assembled CWX and P3D Pipe, Steel, Equipment, and Electrical models that dovetail with preconfigured WorxSettings and a collection of DIAGRAMS, MTO, ISO, & OTHRO templates.
    Start out by exploring MTOWorx Quick Reports. Custom
    Templates located under c:\ProgramData\ECE Design\WorxProjects\MTOWorx are aligned with numerous MTOWorx SINGLE, CUT, and TOTAL tables set to be common project reports.

  • Grid filter and sort setting transfer to Quick Reports

Fixes and Usability

  • Updated the Piping/Steel/SINGLE/CUT/TOTAL and all other buttons to the new theme.
  • Fixed Nozzle so that it exports the latest CADWorx Equipment format.

More Compare Options for Cut Pipe

The latest release of MTOWorx has some new features/functions to help users manage pipe cut lengths.

Now Users can compare Cut Pipe takeoffs against current models and determine if Pipe Cuts have been added, deleted, or if lengths have changed.

We are sure this could help you someday!

September 2019

Compatibility with more applications 

Now AutoCAD PLANT 3D (AP3D) compatible.  

Users can maintain the exact same material take-off methods when executing projects with AP3D or CADWorx.  Almost all the Worx Plugins are compatible with AP3D.

Now BricsCAD V19 compatible

Since CADWorx will run on BricsCAD, we strive to keep the Worx Plugins compatible with it.
