I've had X8 Beta installed for about 2 minutes now

and I can tell you that the improved function of the

Mouse-Orbit Camera (

) is

fantastic. You can now literally walk your way thru

the plan (inside and out) and easily get views that

would have taken you dozens of camera placement

adjustments in the past. Now I find X7 impossible

to work with.   :wacko:

 

This feature alone is worth the upgrade for me.

I like a lot of the new features! Well heck all of them! :)

 

My fav's - 

Elevation reference for objects

Object painter-match properties

Auto Story pole dimensions in elevations

Colored elevations to layout

Auto detail and layer improvements for roofs

Stair display improvements!

Rendering and Raytrace sun options per camera!!!

Bump and push objects to casings of doors and windows!

 

Plus the big bonus of the software working faster!  thumb up

All 3d views are up very quickly! 

Especially the line style view!

 

Thank you Chief! 

a great improvement in making, detailing, and presenting our designs!

I agree with Michael on the specific features but most of all I appreciate the little things things that can't be quantified that make the program just that little bit better, faster, smoother.

3d view styles are definitely faster.  Very nice.  Still want even more speed if possible,  ;)  but still better..  really like the opaque window glass option.

Control of cabinet sides and backs is huge for me.

Also love labels on plines which allows me to get things into the cabinet schedule by blocking.

Grateful for the new missing material dialog.

And not listed improvement -clipped corner cabinets show toe space properly.
