Product Description Fixed in
2023/08/09 NP2023.1 NP Road

Layer Properties thickness does not come out on the StructureLayer feature after upgrading the task.

Temporary solution: Rebuild the road a second time and then it works OK.

2023/08/07 NP2023.3 NP Road/Rail When using Alignment Design and the results are NOT OK, it shows the wrong results and also says that the design is OK.
2023/06/29 QfW2023.3 Quadri for Win Markers in BCF Topics, that are created and set out, do not currently appear visible in Quadri for Windows' presentation windows.
2023/05/29 QfW2022 Quadri for Win Sweep tool: QfW2023, when editing sweep tasks that are originally created in QfW2020 or older (typically upgraded from older Quadri model), the input diameter is changed. Make sure the correct diameter is added before running the sweep task in QfW2023. This is not an issue for sweep task created in QfW2023.
Pre-release QfW2023.2 Quadri for Win Opening a model where a table presentation + 3D presentations are open, in some cases Quadri crashes upon opening the model. Workaround would be holding Shift on keyboard when clicking to open the model, because then the model will open with no active presentations.
Pre-release QfW2023.2 Quadri for Win IFC4.3 export: There are some bugs in the functionality for exporting the spatial breakdown structure based on the structure specified in the association configuration file. For some situations, not all the levels in the breakdown structure are exported.
2023/03/01 QfW2023.1 Quadri for Win IFC4.3 export: The spatial breakdown structure can't be sorted by entity names, causing all manhole parts of the same pipe type to be contained in the same assembly.
2023/01/11 QfW2023a Quadri for Win SketchUp for Web integration inside QfW is outdated and removed for now. This functionality will be re-factored, fixed and included back in a future release.
2022/12/19 QfW2022.7 Quadri for Win “Receive” don't get all changes shared by others. We are working to find out how and why it happens, and unfortunately have no other workaround if it occurs other than downloading a new workset.
2022/12/09 QfW2022.7 Quadri for Win You should not have worksets with different type registers in the same folder. If you do, you will get errors about “Incorrect type register” when you switch between them, which interrupts server operations and leads to a “rollback” of server operations, which in large projects can take 15-20 minutes..
2022/09/15 2022.6 GeoSuite Conversion Rule for GeoSuite missing
2022/06/17 QfW2022 Quadri for Win Imported DWG's in older models to UnclassifiedObjects, don't show the colors. Workaround is to copy this file to your folder “My Drawing Rules”: and unzip it. Look in Quadri Settings to find where your “My Drawing Rules” folder is located.
2022/04/07 NP2022.FP1 NP Road Pavement may get a kink up under the inner slope when a roadbed “endslope” starts closer to the centerline than the inner slope.

Workaround: Also add 'Detailed pavement description'. This should anyway be added as a design where the roadbed goes up early is not a recommended design to send to site.
2022/04/01 QfW2020 GUDB-import The functionality on the area-tab on the Dynamic Query dialog used for GUDB-import doesn't work as it should
2021/12/10 QfW2020 Quadri for Win SketchUp web will only work from Quadri 2022 versions. Quadri 2020 doesn't have support for SketchUp web anymore, as older Chromium browser versions are not supported anymore
2021/10/21 NP2020 3D Intersection
Error when starting tool when .NET Framework 3.5 is not activated on the computer.

Start .NET Framework 3.5 through Windows-function: 'Turn Windows-functions on or off'.
Other .NET Frameworks that are already ON, should stay ON.

Can also be accessed through Control Panel > Programs > Turn Windows-features ON or OFF….
2021/03/01 NP2020 NP Noise When editing buildings, the yellow circle at point doesn't show. Workaround: uninstall/reinstall to directory “2020” instead of “2020 (acxx)”.
2020/05/27 QfW2020 Quadri for Win There are two sets of EPGS codes representing UTM Zone 32N,33N,35N. When importing norwegian SOSI file you will get the EPGS = 25832, 25833 or 25835.
Temporary solution: If your model is defined with EPGS code 3044, 3045 or 3047 - that also represent 32N, 33N, 35N - look at the text behind the codes, and if that defines that same UTM zone, you should click “CRS is same as model”, as these are identical.
2017/10/09 ALL NP Road Sight distance calculaton gives error about Cross-section calculation insufficient for roads build shorter than 100m.
Temporary solution: Extend the road in start or end and use boundaries on left- and righthand side to the centerline.
2017/01/05 ALL NP Road Error in deepblasting when it hits the rock surface in two or more places in the cross-section. Deepblasting surface is then create above the rock surface. Quantities for deepblasting is wrong in these areas.
2016/09/11 20 NP Road Error in sight analysis results.
NOTE: Sight analysis report is correct, and we see sightlines in the model, but when a not-approved sightline is found, the sightline does not have the correct direction/length.
ALL NP Road Top soil or vegetation removal above soft soil removal can give varying results. Check the quantity calculations and mass hatches in cross-section drawings to indentify errors.

2022/05/31 NP2022.4 NP WaterSewer The implementation of 'Connect pipes with different network types to same manhole' released on 2022.4 for AutoCAD had the unintended side effect that pipes with same pipe network type where connected to the same connection object in nodes when designing a new trench. Thus the connections specified for the selected cross section where not created » will be fixed in update 2022.4a NP2022.4a
2022/05/01 QfW2022.3 Quadri for Win The feature catalog might be in english in other configs. Share model to server and release reservations, then download a new workset QfW2022.4
2022/04/07 NP2022 NP Road Sight Analysis uses the wrong incline/decline in the calculation when the roadmodel doesn't start at the beginning of the alignment.

Longitudinal incline/decline is set to 0% until reaching a change in the vertical geometry.

Workaround: Build the full length of the roadmodel, cut the length of the vertical alignment to the length of the roadmodel, or add an element transition right at the start of the roadmodel.
2021/12/10 NP2020 NP Tunnel When making several tunnel drawings of different types in the same session of AutoCAD, then sometimes AutoCAD crashes. NP2022.3
2021/12/10 NP2020 NP Tunnel The diary- and blast reports crashes NP2022.3

2021/09/26 NP2020 NP Railway Upgraded model from NP 20, a double track model with alignment for each track may be corrupt. NP2022.FP1
2020/11/19 NP2020 NP Road and Railway Use of Boundaries and Object Bridge or Tunnel when only one side of the road uses this type of Object can give wrong cut and fill solids. The model must have the same Object and chainage for the boundaries on both sides of the road. NP2022
2020/09/21 2020 NP Road Quantities can in some models be wrong if many soil layers have holes or cross eachother. NP2022
2019/12/19 21.FP4 NP Road Wrong area on pavement layers can occur in quantity report when using the rehab-pavement function.
2019/05/28 21.FP4 NP Road Errors in 3D results when road model goes in circle and crosses itself.
From FP4a: Solution is improved when the road is completely crossing itself, but still not when it has a minor overlap in the results.
2018/05/09 21 NP Road Deep blasting endsurface method 3 always goes to the last ditch surface.
Temporary solution: Use endsurface method 2 instead.
2021/07/01 QfW2020.FP1f Quadri for Win With new TrimbleID4, SketchUp Web is currently not working, as SketchUp Web currently only support TrimbleID3 and backwards. QfW2022
2019/11/20 21 NP Tunnel When using Novapoint Tunnel in AutoCAD for 3D-drawing e.g., you sometimes get a stopping error message telling you that the tunnel task is incompatible. You must then restart AutoCAD to be able to proceed with your tunnel task. NP2020.FP1h

2021/01/15 All versions NP Road and Railway Dragging alignment fixpoints in Alignment Design when CAD is not in 2D Wireframe visual style.
Goes into infinite loop.

Temporary solution: Close Alignment Design (don't have to close CAD), then change to 2D Wireframe visual style and continue your work.
2020/10/12 NP2020 NP Road and Railway Road model/Railway model. Soft spot removal does not work in Simple mode. Advanced mode has to be used to get the removal of soft spot layer. NP2020.FP1b
2020/01/21 NP2020 NP Road and Railway Alignment geometry data on Line tasks as 'Non-Alignment Line' would disappear when using Import or Insert QG4 on Quadrimodels. NP2020.FP1b
2020/10/23 NP2020 NP Road and Railway Detailed Quantity report gets wrong quantities if road/railway model has boundary on left side in centerline. Summary report and the X-sect based detailed report gives correct quantities. Workaround is to add Distance 0.01 from Centerline for boundary. NP2020.FP1a
2020/10/13 Quadri2020 Quadri for Win When importing DWG, and in settings > Solid/Surface, the value of “Max face edge lenght” can not be 0 (zero), or the program will hang. Any other value is ok. NP2020.FP1a
2020/09/24 NP20/21/2020 Alignment Design Alignment Design in Road and Rail does not work on Windows 10 version 2004 and AutoCAD later than 2015. This is related to Windows version 2004 only. NP2020.FP1a
2020/10/01 NP2020 NP WS Splitting a trench, where user defined attributes are added, may cause that the user defined attributes will be deleted during rebuild of the trench task. NP2020.FP1
2020/05/11 21? NP Road Sight analysis can fail for some road models. Related to the roadmodel building 1mm before the start chainage.
Temporary solution: Build roadmodel, but start sightanalysis with start chainage a bit after the actual startchainage for the model.
2020/03/01 21.FP4? NP Road Roadmodel results may look choppy. Happens when combining roadmodel boundary to centerline when cross-sections are overlapping (because of sharp turn on alignment) and the following cleanup that we do to the results.
Temporary solution: Change the boundary to alignment to also have a distance of 1cm or similar.
2020/01/17 21.FP4 NP Road Rock <1m not included in summary report. NP2020
2019/06/28 21 NP Road Vegetation and topsoil removal using vertical-vertical does not work. No material is removed and no fill is put back in. NP2020
