    Questions & Answer Transcript:

    Q. In what way is MV is better than Cabinet Vision?

    A. With Microvellum, there is no limit, no ceiling to what you can build. I cannot say the same with CV. CV is good for boxes, and a pretty picture. If you want to do more, build more than standard casework, you will eventually need a tool like Microvellum. MV is AutoCAD based. CV is not. If you work with Architects, you need AutoCAD. Why juggle two programs - one to communicate with Architects, another to redraw and process projects? Microvellum utilizes one software... working from a platform that Architects use.

     

    Q. Are these features built into the product library, or are they part of the V15?

    A. We are seeing a hybrid of both. New features in the program, which new library data is taking advantage of.

     

    Q. If we upgrade to V15, but want to maintain our V39.2 Library, are the features he just showed us compatible with older libraries?

    A. The older library will still function. But unless you upgrade to a new library, many of the library features will not automatically update. I would recommend having a conversation with your account manager to discuss options.

     

    Q. I have OEM 2017 and still using V7 as you pointed out the result could be unpredictable in this case?

    A. If you are on OEM 2017, you should be ok. I would start a conversation with your account manager to verify what version you are on and check compatibility with your library.

     

    Q. Approximately how much time does it take to upgrade to version 15?

    A. It would be best for us to learn more about your company's needs and goals. There will be some training needed as well as some configuration services you should consider. I suggest we put you in contact with your Account Manager who will be able to help you create an upgrade strategy.

     

    Q. When is the new beta version going to be moved to General Release? 

    A. The projected release date is September 26, 2017

     

    Q. So, where do I download the new library or does it cost to access the library?

    A. If you have a current support & maintenance subscription, you have access to all new libraries at no cost. https://microvellum.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/214586126-Component-Cabinet-Library
