There are a lot of innovations that make the tenth version of the application different from its earlier versions.

The application first improved the different creation tools of the application, placing particular emphasis on floors, windows, and doors. First, creating floor plans are even made easier because of the integration of onscreen angular dimensions. This makes it easier to make the plan more accurate. Next, double doors are easier to handle because of enhanced door handling that makes it easier to fit in walls. Windows also includes a federation and prairie style for designs which is a common request for clients. These can also be combined easily using a glass, frame, or sash.

The application also improved the different tools of the application to make it easier to browse through. Next, the application has its own search tool where users can find materials quickly. This is a big solution as many users have complained about the need to scroll through the different menus of the application. Hyperlinks are also easily accessed with the right click menu which makes it easier to browse.

The last batch of changes are dedicated towards the rendering of the application. First, there are now new skyboxes which makes backdrops much more realistic. There is also a baked lighting option in Presentation mode now.
