unit's list
Loads a list Units register for preview and if necessary - editing.  The register includes a full list of non-standard units participating in system of the program.. All units, included in  Units register can participate in formation of the prices (Price offer formation) depending on their measure and cutting.

Save a drawing

Save a job – Saves the job under its user name (if it is a new one) or saves the changes in an already saved one.

Save as new job

Save as new job – This operation is used for saving a new drawing with its user name or for entering an already existing one with a new name.


Operations intended for creation a drawing / job

Room generating

Room generating – Opens a dialog for setting-up the parameters and generating a new premise (room) or for editing the characteristics and pregenerating of the existing one.

Insert units

Insert units – The operation automate the process of adding units in the drawing (non-standard) and opens the modules for generating of polyelement units- Cabinets,Kitchen worktops and sinks an etc.

loads module Cabinet
Cabinet - Loads module Cabinet, which generates furniture designs, automatically creates and adds in the nomenclature their element structure necessary for calculation of an expenditure of materials during formation of the prices and cutting. 
Additional elements

Additional elements – The module generates one-element units in the drawing.The units have functional purpose as self-dependent units or as additional elements toward other units.They can be used for creation of interior elements in the room with different shape,   columns, arches, rosettes and etc.

Worktops

Worktops – Starts the operation of entering the parameters and generating of a worktop,wall panels (vertical worktop) and plinths.

Group addition and deleting of units

Group addition and deleting of units – Automates the operation about adding fronts toward generated cabinets and adding handles toward the fronts.

Sets

Sets - The set is a few cabinets (group of cabinets),fronts and handles,all that saved in one template.Created once,the set can be called in and generated in other job, without making and arranging again all units in the set.

2D Text

Addition and correction of 2D text in the drawing - The module is been used for adding and editing 2D texts in the drawing.

three-dimensional text
Insertion of 3D texts in  the drawing The module is been used for adding and editing three-dimensional texts in the drawing.
Faience - terracotta Faience - terracotta - The module generates tiles by beforehand given scheme and parameters. Its purpose is to construct the interior-walls and floor,regardless of their type (bathrooms,kitchens and other premises).

Dimensioning operations

Measurement and dimensioning - Opens operation for measurement of a distance, angle and/or of radius in the drawing. The drawing of the sizes makes by a way of a manual selection of points. It is recommendatory to use it for single units.

Automatic dimensioning of units - Opens operation of dimensioning of the drawing. The dimensioning makes on basis of specified units in View top and View front.

Rendering operations
Texture library

Texture library – Open the operation for connecting the layers in the project with palettes. You can add user textures in the libraries.Here can change a texture characterizations  that is connected with layers,without leaving the module.

Layer-texture
Layer-texture- This module allows to be attached by default concrete palettes to layers , that belong to respective nonstandard unit. Subsequently in module Texture libraries you will not  have to connect the layers of these units with palettes , because they will be automatically appropriated.
Layers of units
Layers in the units - Creates and  supports register of all used layers in the units. Allows to change the names of layers, irrespective of the units (from Units register or Archival) in which these layers  participate.
Edit texture characteristics

Correction of the texture characteristics – Open the operation for editing the texture characteristics in AutoCAD environment, mainly for textures from Chrome and Glass libraries.It is recommended to use the above-mentioned operation, not this one.

Hide layer

Visible layers in the drawing – Defines which layers in the drawing to be visible and which - not.It is used for freezing layers for better visibility at some operations.
