iBwave FiberPass   

WHAT'S NEW IN
iBWAVE FIBERPASS

Riser Zones

  • With the 17.0 release, additional automation was added to the Riser Design view in Mobile. Those features are now available when importing the Mobile FiberPass file into Desktop.

This includes:

Fixed Riser Zones

  • In previous versions, the building layout in the Riser View would be sized to fit the page. This often resulted in misshapen floor/riser zones as the application stretched/shrunk to fit. Now, Riser Zones are of fixed dimensions. This makes layout and object positioning more predictable and the resulting graphic more representative of the actual building.

Floor and Riser Labels

  • Floor and Riser labels have been adjusted so that they are properly positioned on the building layout.

Unit Range Labels

  • The Mobile enhancement to the Riser Design workflow included a virtual unit configuration. Instead of having to place all the units on the floorplan to account for them in the Living Unit list, the user can assign the Range simply from the Unit Configurator in the Riser Diagram. In Desktop, this Unit Range now appears in the Riser View as label inside of the Riser Zone.

Save/Load Template Reports to/from Unity

  • You can now upload your iBwave custom report templates to Unity when saving a "New Server Template" project.
