New features common to several programs

Linking to BIMserver.center

As of version 2022.e, applications that are connected to BIMserver.center communicate with the platform more directly. As a result, it is no longer necessary to specify the user account(s) and projects to be synchronised in the BIMserver.center Sync tool before using the applications. When a user signs in from a desktop application, it automatically establishes the connection to the project.

Previously, some applications required the user to connect to BIMserver.center and select a project in order to start a job. Now, this is no longer necessary and the link will only need to be established when updating the project or sharing a contribution.

Importing symbols in DXF or DWG format

New features common to several programs

In the applications listed below, apart from the symbols included to represent elements that are introduced in their corresponding installations, symbols in DXF or DWG format can be imported:


Implementing codes and improving their enforcement

Composite concrete and steel structures

Spanish structural code "Código Estructural"

"Código Estructural (Real Decreto 470/2021)".

Implemented in CYPECAD and CYPE 3D for analysing and checking composite concrete and steel columns.

In previous versions, it was already implemented for analysing, designing or checking other structural elements:


CYPE Architecture

CYPE Architecture

Automatic generation of 2D templates in DWG format

When exporting the CYPE Architecture architectural model in a BIMserver.center project, the program can automatically generate templates in DWG format. These templates will facilitate modelling in other Open BIM workflow programs that are connected to that project, especially for those working in a 2D environment.

CYPE Architecture

The templates are generated from each of the plan views available in the "Views" panel, taking the "Distance to the top plane" of each of them as a reference.

Once the CYPE Architecture architectural model has been exported to the chosen project on the BIMserver.center platform, the templates can be loaded in other Open BIM workflow programs connected to that project, and their visibility can be configured from the "DXF-DWG Template" button in each program.

CYPE Architecture


Automatic level detection when inserting architectural elements into 3D views

The program facilitates the introduction of architectural elements and furniture in 3D views, automatically detecting to which level they belong.

This new function can be deactivated, in which case the program will allow the user to manually choose the level where they wish to enter the element.

Search by typology

The functionality of the "Search" button in the "Edit" group in the "Architecture" tab allows searching not only by the reference to the element but also by its associated typology.

CYPE Architecture


Default typology

When opening a new job, the program will assign a typology by default for each one of the architectural elements.

Typologies simplify the introduction of elements and their later modification and also allow the elements to be classified in other programs in the Open BIM workflow.

CYPE Architecture


Sketch surface information

By activating the "Show information texts" feature and hovering over any surface generated with the tools in the "Sketch" tab, the area of that surface will be displayed. Furthermore, the program exports the area information and the label of the surface so that it is accessible in other programs from the Open BIM workflow and in the BIMserver.center viewer.

Copying properties between elements in the "Furniture" tab

The "Copy properties" tool has been implemented in the "Edit" group of the "Furniture" tab. This tool allows users to copy properties between the same type of elements (Reference, Level, Colour, etc.).

CYPE Architecture

To copy the properties of an element, follow the steps below. Please note that you can only copy properties between elements of the same type.

  1. Click on the "Copy properties" button in the "Edit" menu.
  2. Select the item for which you wish to copy the properties.
  3. A panel will appear with a list of properties that can be copied and their values.
  4. Choose the properties you wish to copy and accept the panel.
  5. Select the elements to which you wish to copy the chosen properties.
  6. Right-click the mouse and the properties will be transferred to the selected elements.


Open BIM Construction Systems

Update for assigning construction systems

The "Update construction systems according to the typologies of the architectural model" option has been added to the configuration panel for updating the BIM model. When it is activated, the existing connection of the construction systems with the elements in the architectural BIM model will be removed and will be re-established based on architectural typologies. This link can be edited via the "Assign systems" option available in the "Edit" group in the application’s toolbar.

Open BIM Construction Systems

Technical data

As of version 2022.e, technical data can be assigned to construction systems. To do this, the "Technical data" option has been added in the definition panel of each construction system. Introducing these parameters is optional and in this version (2022.e) we can find them grouped into the following categories:

Open BIM Construction Systems   Open BIM Construction Systems   Open BIM Construction Systems

In "Other technical data" the user can create new groups of data and add custom parameters manually. In the other categories, some predefined parameters can be found, as well as a list for entering custom parameters.

The technical data is included in the Material and Construction Specifications, both for the building envelope and partitioning system. These documents can be exported to the BIMserver.center project and read by other applications.

Material and Construction Specifications. Partitioning system   Material and Construction Specifications. Envelope system

Sound absorption coefficients in the layers of a construction system

An option for entering the sound absorption coefficients for 500, 1000 and 2000 Hz bands in the layers forming construction systems has been added. The sound absorption coefficients in the internal and external surfaces of the construction system are included in the Material and Construction Specifications, both for the building envelope and partitioning system. These documents can be exported to the BIMserver.center project and read by other applications.

Open BIM Construction Systems

Thermal parameters for the layers of a construction system included in their documents

As of version 2022.e, the thermal parameters entered for the layers that make up a construction system appear in the list of layers displayed in the Material and Construction Specifications, both for the building envelope and partitioning system. These documents can be exported to the BIMserver.center project and read by other applications.


Open BIM Layout

Open BIM Layout

Improvements in the "3D scene" library

The "3D Scene" library has been improved to include the following features:

Open BIM Layout


Link sheet

This new feature allows the content of one sheet to be displayed within another. When linking the content, any changes made to the original sheet will be automatically updated in the sheet containing the link.

Open BIM Layout


Automatic sheet composition

A new feature that allows users to automatically generate a composition of drawings from a selection of sheets. Each drawing is inserted as a link to the content of the corresponding original sheet.

Open BIM Layout

Dimension style

Within the dimension styles, the type of unit (metres, centimetres, millimetres, feet or inches) can be indicated.



Creating construction details with an image

In the "Add user information" option (Drawing editor - Details – Add user information), details can be created by importing an image. Up until the previous version (2022.d), details could only be created from DXF and DWG files. In the import process, the final size of the image in the drawing can be defined.


Other improvements and corrections

Version 2022.e of CYPECAD includes other minor improvements and corrections of the program for certain cases:



"Channel with stiffened web" type in BS 5950-5:1998 cold formed steel sections

In version 2022.e, "Channel with stiffened web" type cold formed steel sections have been included for beams and columns (CYPECAD) and for bars (CYPE 3D) when the selected standard is BS 5950-5:1998.


CYPE Connect and StruBIM Steel

Improvement for importing bars

In version 2022.e, the importation of sections from the BIM model has been improved. It is now possible to select or modify the sections for each of the typologies defined in the IFC file.

In the "Bars" step of the BIM model import assistant, a list of detected section types is displayed. In the "Cross section" column, the section to be assigned in CYPE Connect will be indicated. By clicking on each cell, the cross section and material selection panel can be accessed.

When possible, the program generates a proposal based on the information available in the BIM model. Users can select the sections they wish to import as well as carry out manual assignments when deemed necessary or when automatic detection has not been possible. The assignment made is saved for subsequent imports.
