Version 3.0.5 - 12.15.2022
- Enabled auto-dimensioning for plan views of all wall panels.
- Added the "Dimension Offset 2" and "Plan Dimensions" parameters to the General tab of the global settings.
- Updated the Add Material and Edit Material HTML menus so that commas cannot be used in Custom Material names.

Note that framing dimensions (elevations) and plan dimensions (plan view) can be turned on and off independent of each other in the global settings.  Also the additional offset parameters allows one to adjust both offsets independently as well.  However both dimensions are placed on the same layer (at least for now).

Currently the plan view dimension option will assign an overall dimension for the wall length and then separate dimensions for windows, doors and garage doors.  I do not have it inserting dimensions for more custom features like Simpson Strong Walls or in-wall columns.

This new feature is per customer request.
Due to popular demand I have decided to extend the renewal and mdkBIM promotion until Dec. 5, 2022.
Version 2.0.7 - 11.01.2022
- Added four additional top chord point loads under advanced loads for solar panel installations and other applications.

Version 3.2.0 - 11.28.2022
- Fixed a minor bug with the roof cladding thickness parameter when the materials option is toggled off.

Strange that I never noticed this bug before but I guess most of us turn on the materials option so that is probably why no one ever really noticed.  I highly recommend turning on the materials options to get the full bang for your buck out of the plugin but in the rare chance you don't want to this bug fix will take care of the previous issue reported above.
Version 3.1.9 - 11.25.2022
- Enabled subtractive geometry for all shed rafter roofs.

I will be running a thanksgiving promotion beginning Nov. 23rd until Dec. 1st. with 35% off of the regular mdkBIM bundle price (permanent license) using the coupon code GIVETHANKS22.

This will reduce the bundle price from $280.00 USD to $182.00 USD. This promo code does not apply to any of the extensions purchased separately or for the electrical plugin. The offer ends on Dec. 1 and no rain checks will issued thereafter.

I will also be running a separate renewal promotion for existing customers, the details will be sent out in a bulk email.
Version 3.0.4 - 09.15.2022
- Added XPS foam insulation as a built-in cavity insulation option.
- Added XPS foam insulation as a built-in sheathing option.

In the material folder I've also included a zero-border version that can be utilized as a custom material.
Version 3.0.3 - 09.12.2022
- Reorganized the door draw and edit menus to include an annotations section.
- Added a "door swing angle" parameter for single and double doors.
- Added the door swing angle parameter to the Door tab of the global settings.

The preset angles are: 30, 45, 60, 90, 120, 135.  The door swing angle for the door symbol can be set on a per door basis and can also be set to a default value within the global settings.  This update per customer request.
Version 3.0.2b - 09.06.2022
- Fixed a bug with wall presets introduced with the addition of the Label Rotation parameter from Version 2.9.8.

This bug affects wall presets within the "Draw" menu only.  The issue was already correct in the "Edit" menu.  I strongly encourage everyone to upgrade to this version of the plugin if you have Version 1.9.8 or later currently installed.
An actual mud hut:


In all seriousness though there are number of building methods (ie. rammed earth, adobe, cobb, stone etc...) which could utilize the flexibility of custom framing materials:

Version 3.0.2 - 09.05.2022
- Enabled custom materials for wall framing within the global settngs.
- Enabled custom materials within the "Wall Framing Material" parameter for all wall types.

With this update you are no longer constrained to set number of material/texture options for the wall framing.  You can now use your own custom material for wall framing.  The update was also per customer request.
Version 3.0.1 - 09.03.2022
- Added a "Label Location" parameter for windows: AUTO, INT, EXT.
- Added a "Label Location" parameter for doors: AUTO, INT, EXT.

You can now manually configure the window and door labels to be on the interior or exterior of the wall on a per opening basis.  The feature added per customer request.
Version 3.1.8 - 08.29.2022
- Added a parameter into the general tab of the global settings to allow for adjustment of the size of labels and annotations.
- Added a parameter into the general tab of the global settings to allow for adjustment of the font for text found within annotations and labels.
- Added a "resolution" parameter into the general tab of the global settings for adjusting the smoothness of annotation text.
- Added a "Label Rotation" parameter (0 or 180 degrees).
- Enabled various annotation options/parameters for truss roofs.

Basically just bringing some of the annotation formatting options over from the Wall Plugin.  I will still need to enable these options for rafter roofs, hip sets and complex roofs.  This update per user request.
Version 3.1.7 - 08.26.2022
- Enabled the following 3D roof cladding material for shed rafter roofs: Metal.

Version 3.0.0 - 08.22.2022
- Fixed a bug created by the upgrades in Version 2.9.9.
- Updated some of the Global Settings tabs to display the status message at the top of the HTML page.
