  • Internal wall texture (inner-wall covering e.g. brick, paint, wallpaper etc..)

  • Plinth wall texture (brick image below door level)
  • Plinth height (brick height below door level)
  • Dwarf wall height (also has a switch to turn the wall on or off)

  • Integrated Comfy CAD feature for drawing & planning (Click left title for more info)
  • Integrated Comfortable Surface Designer for driveways & more (Click left title for more info)
  • ComfyPaint for touching up house photos (Click left title for more info)
  • Enhanced file input support. Jpegs (.jpg compressed format that most digital cameras save in) and windows bitmaps (.bmp standard for photo quality images within windows operating systems) can be used for house photos and/or any of the effects i.e. brick work, flooring, profile etc.
  • Enhanced file output support. Finished overlays can now be stored on your computer in either the Jpegs (.jpg) or windows bitmaps (.bmp) formats. Jpeg's are smaller files which means you can fit far more photo-overlays using the .jpg format than bitmaps to your computer.
  • DFX export. The Conservatory model can now be exported to a DXF file, which in turn can be imported in to other CAD packages.
  • Volume can be viewed as soon as overall dimensions have been entered.
  • Built-in 'Conservatory Information dialogue' displays a breakdown for volume, floor area, base area, wall area, brick count (from floor up) and pitch etc.
  • Conservatory facet sizes can be adjusted to suit.
  • Ability to change wall type options:
    • Type
    • Outer thickness
    • Material
    • Offset
    • Inner skin (Cavity, thickness and material).
  • Copy to Order function. This allows you to copy a conservatory quote to an order, whilst keeping the original quote intact.
  • JOB TRANSFER function. This ingenious feature lets you export quotes and orders to files (the co6 file type). These files can then be imported in to the same version of the software installed on a different PC/laptop. These files can also be transferred via email!
    Note: All systems involved in the transfer must have the same effects data (e.g. images for brick work, flooring and so on..)
  • SKIP function. Allows you to skip screens to speed up conservatory configuration.
Enhanced reports & report features with these incredible abilities:
  • Group reports in to separate types:
    • Line drawings (A4 / A3)
    • Photo Orders
    • Photo quotes
    • Photo Proposals ↦ more!
  • Print report groups or individual reports
  • Adjustable report names
  • Un-used report removal
  • Comes with preset report groups, including a 'Sales Pack' (all of which, you can change to suit).
Many of the line drawing reports can also be scaled using, "user definable"" scaling, ideal for planning. Numerous reports also detail conservatory volume, floor area, base area (to external wall) and a brick count (from floor up, for inner and outer skin.).

Your own company logo can be shown on reports.

All of the amazing reports above can be sent directly to a printer, or even saved as .pdf files and emailed! (The software can also print to other files, e.g. jpeg (.jpg), .emf and more!)
