New clone selected feature

When editing general arrangement drawings, you often need to repetitively add annotations, dimensions and styles for building objects throughout the drawing.  The new clone selected feature clones existing annotation objects, drawing object representations and styles from selected source objects to selected target objects in general arrangement drawings. With this feature you can reduce manual repetition considerably.

Curved construction objects and radial grids

In this video we introduce two new construction objects (construction arc and construction polycurve) and a new command to copy construction objects.  We also introduce the new radial grid feature and shows how you can now create truly radial grids.  Use the radial grids as aids when you model round or curved structures, such as round columns, towers, tanks, circular platforms, and so on. If needed, you can create a full 360 degree grid.
