I just downloaded version 14.11. In reading though the release notes, I see no mention of models....that does not sound good. Does anyone know if they have killed off models? We use them extensively.
You are correct that Models are not yet in the SQL branch of Sage Estimating. It is in the works and scheduled for release this year.
Along with cut and fill (also is missing)? We really would like to move to the SQL version but those two features are vital.
Models is one of the last remaining parity items that we're working to get in to the SQL branch of Estimating. You're correct that they're not in 14.11, but we hope to have them in the software soon.
I see this is 5 years ago? Anyway when will cut & fill and models becoming to the SQL version of estimating? this is keeping me from upgrading to SQL
They do have Models now, but there's a few small glitches. Since you can install the new SQL (MSQL) on the same computer that has the old SQL (PSQL) I'd say go ahead and install it. BUT!! Only use it to 'test' things out. Keep putting Estimates together in the old version until you've tested out the new version. The reason to test is the new version works fine for some users, but others users have some issues. Everybody uses the software differently so find out for yourself what you think of it.As far as Cut and Fill. Sage has basically walked away from that. It probably won't be in MSQL ever. BUT you can keep it installed and keep using it. There just won't be any new versions of it, and if you ever did actually use the interface, well, that won't work in MSQL.Bottomline: I'd say install the MSQL, and thoroughly test it's Models out/etc., leave the PSQL Cut and Fill installed on your Digitizer computer and you might be fine.Please let me know what you end up doing. Thanks
