Updates for Novapoint Base

All configurations

  • Bugfix: Long section drawing in some cases had a problem with line-line sections in vertical geometry (ticket 517)

Norwegian configuration

  • Enhancement: SOSI 4.2 now supported for import, export and conversion

Danish configuration

  • Bugfix: Import of DSFL-files - fixed cases where file ends in a text definition (ticket 263)
  • Bugfix: Import of DSFL-files - fixed problem where circles were not read correctly in 2D (ticket 264)

Swedish configuration

  • Bugfix: Import of PXY-files, problem where last line is read as a single point (ticket 332)

Updates for Novapoint Road

All configurations

  • Road - Draw Longitudinal profile - Draw Longitudinal profile from Road Model. A major change in this function. The two choices under Terrain profile settings have been changed to “With breaklines” and “Without breaklines”

With breaklines - the profile is based on all the information that has been stored in the DTM. The profile will draw the original terrain with breaklines, subsurface layers with breaklines and existing objects. In addition crossing wireframe models will be drawn separately. The source for the profile is from the last build of the road model. In the road model under Model - Settings - L. Profile the brekline calculation can be switched on or off, parallel terrain lines can also be added. The default setting for the breakline calculation is on. Turning it off will speed up the Road model build. Note: The “With breaklines” option will not draw sub surface layers that only have been defined in the road model. Sub surface layers must be defined in the DTM if they are to be drawn.

Without breaklines - the profile is drawn solely from the cross sections in the road model as previously. (ticket 300)

  • Deep blasting against ditch surface problem on right hand side fixed (ticket 617)

Norwegian configuration

  • Bugfix: Import from KOF-file does not update DeltaZ and slope (ticket 532)

Updates in Novapoint Tunnel

Asymmetric cross sections

New functionality for modeling asymmetric tunnel cross sections is now included in NP Tunnel. Asymmetric cross sections supports different values at the left and right tunnel walls for the wall radiuses and height up to the wall curve center. In addition functionality for modeling a straight wall on one side of the tunnel and a curved wall on the other side of the tunnel is included

Updates in Novapoint Water and Sewer


  • Updated Novapoint QuickShip to also include WS model files


  • Bugfix: Now possible to use decimals for trench slope
  • Updated alignment styles: “Text orientation” added in alignment styles (WaterSewer-Reference-Left and WaterSewer-Reference-Right).


  • Bugfix Node-rename/selection in tree view: When renaming a node and selecting the next node in the tree view, the connections under the renamed node was wrong. They belonged to the connection before the one selected.
  • Bugfix Connection-rename/selection in tree view: When renaming a connection in grid, so it’s not the first connection in the tree view, and set focus on the next cell in the grid, the tree focus was still the first connection.
  • Bugfix: When moving a node along a curved, road attached trench by entering a new station, farther from the node's original position than the segment length, the curve was not updated. If user then afterwards selected “Update Road references”, the pipes was cut.
  • Bugfix: When deleting a node and the pipe had horizontal vertices the reference pipes got wrong end elevation.
  • Improved edit functionality: Now possible to edit pipe elevation with mouse right click menu in plan drawing. And the elevation can be presented in the plan graphic by activating it in the Construction dialog Tools-menu.
  • Improved edit functionality: Added new question regarding Pipe elevation when moving node in plan drawing.
  • Improved edit functionality: Small change in Renumbering dialog. And fixed renumbering if same type of manholes where connected to one node.


  • Bugfix Cross section: Sewage pressure pipe drawn to wrong elevation (the wall thickness too high).
  • Improved LS userinterface: 1)Frame setting lenght and height : now mean the size of border frame - 2)Insertion point: now mean to lower left point of the border frame
  • Improved 3D solid presenation for concrete manhole taper and adjusting unit


  • Bugfix: Updated export of 3D trench line model
  • Bugfix: LandXML export produced a “non-valid” if pipe not connected to object in endpoint
