A recent webinar we conducted showed the new features of the HoleBASE SI Extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D and it has prompted a number of users to get in touch with us to discuss how they would like this exciting new product to develop beyond this initial release.

What is exciting is that this new extension for HoleBASE SI is a change of technology platform for our users and the new AutoCAD Civil Extension is allowing users to carry out operations in AutoCAD ten times faster than they could in KeyHOLE. This large jump in productivity coupled with the BIM integration and the additional features that AutoCAD Civil 3D offers our users, is driving this current wave of interest to influence where we take the program in the next release.

The HoleBASE SI Extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D is now at a crossroads, and we have many options available to explore and expand the functionality offered in the first release. These functions include; more sophisticated 3D modelling routines; increased access to all the data groups in HoleBASE SI; more comprehensive borehole style management; and improved handling of contamination data and plumes.

We pride ourselves on the quality and fitness for purpose of our software and it is important to us that it does exactly what you need to allow you to do your job fast and efficiently. The best way to find out what you need is to ask you!

We are looking for development partners and beta testers to help us specify the functionality and priority that you need to meet the requirements of the geotechnical world with this exciting new software.

As a development partner for the HoleBASE SI Extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D, you will be invited to attend a couple of private online webinars and if possible, attend a half day review session at Keynetix in Redditch. If you are unable to make a meeting in Redditch, then we will ask you to feedback on new features via a simple online survey.

Being a development partner should only take you around one or two working days and will enable you to influence the direction of the AutoCAD Civil 3D Extension and get access to early releases. However if you are unable to commit this amount of time over the next 6 months then we are also able to offer you the opportunity to get early releases via our beta tester programme.

If you are keen to become a development partner or beta tester for this exciting new product, please contact Gary Morin using the form on the right before the end of July 2013.
