Users can move or copy information within or between multiple estimates to improve estimation speed and consistency. Also, the software features more than 100 new cost models for tooling, fixtures, product models, process models and machining and fabrication features.

The software is now available in three versions (Express, Professional and Premium) and two licensing options (Perpetual, Subscription).
