Buildsoft has released an important update of Cubit, on Tuesday 13 June 2017. See release notes below:

Cubit 7.1.3 Release


Improved Performance*

  • Importing a Job has been greatly increased, especially for large Jobs with over 10,000 Items. A job with over 20,000 Items can import up to 45 times faster. 
  • Opening a Job has been greatly increased, especially for large Jobs with over 10,000 Items. A Job with over 20,000 Items can open up to 10 times faster.
  • Collapsing a Trade or Heading was improved to be as fast as expanding a Trade or Heading.

New Task Pane*
  • A new button has been added for the Factor fields in the New Task pane, so you can add a Factor from the Constants library directly to a Shape (including when calculating any shape using the Length by Centre Result Type.)
  • You can now enter your own Description for the Shape Results of any Shape using the Length by Centre Result Type.

Additional Improvements*
  • You can choose to exclude or include Markup when Exporting a Job to Xero as a Purchase Order.
  • PL Codes can now be used in the Custom Report Builder.


  • Fixed an issue where closing Cubit with the Release licence when exiting option checked was not releasing the Licence.
  • Fixed an issue where GFA was being excluded when copying or converting a Job or creating a Job from a Template.
  • Fixed an issue where resaving a BUI file after making changes in the BIM Reader and then returning the data to Cubit could display an error message.
  • Fixed an issue caused when copying Trades from between Jobs, the Calculation sheet was generating its own Reference Codes.
  • Fixed a rare issue where Cubit Manager could not reset a User Password.
  • Fixed an issue when Exporting to Excel or Generating Reports from a Job with a Variation on a Trade without Items below it could display an error message.
  • Fixed an issue where approved Variations in a Trades would not display in the Approved Variations detail on the Adjustment and sales tax window.
  • Fixed an issue where Items using the Result Type of Centre Length on an imperial Job was calculating in metric.
  • Fixed an issue where transferring a Job from Global Estimating to Cubit took up to six times longer.
  • Fixed an issue where loading a Revision might close the BIM Reader.
