This application is great, it helps me to group similar shapes, change their layer colors, and adjust their quantities by only adjusting the quantity of one item. Hope that the new version can deal with 3D objects.
I am incredibly delighted with this application as it greatly assists me in quantity takeoff. One of the most useful features is its ability to filter out all objects that have the same shape, such as columns, walls, and blocks. This feature saves me a significant amount of time and effort, and I am extremely grateful for it. Overall, this application is an invaluable tool that makes my work more efficient and streamlined.
