2019 software upgrades ??

Recommended Posts

This is about the time that news about the upcoming upgrades for the year come out.  Does anyone have any news about this?  The upgrade from 2017 to 2018 wasn't anything to get excited about.  I'm hoping that this year might be different.  I would really like to see an increase in the print size capability.  This isn't much to ask for HD pro.

They never are, unfortunately.

 

New Home Designer versions usually arrive April/May I believe.

Each upgrade adds new productivity features and abilities as well as requested refinements. Excitement is something one has or does not have. Improvement is all that is being offered when they choose to offer the next versions, which should be soon.

So my guess is sometime this week or next we'll get an upgrade announcement.

I'm excited that 2019 Suite/Arch/Pro will finally get access to Chief Architect Cloud. We'll be able to upload our 3D models there and then display them on the 3D Viewer mobile app. That alone is worth the upgrade IMHO.

 

It also lets you specify the number of light sources used in 3D Views (no 8 light limit anymore). That should improve rendering quality for complex lighting setups.
