Ready? “The MX product line continues to evolve, offering enhanced features and capabilities. Self-contained CAD functionality, engineering components, design-to-field technology, and new visualization tools all form part of the XM Edition of MX.” Deeper in the PR you get sentences like this: “The stand-alone version of MX XM, however, will now include high-quality CAD drafting functionality, allowing MX users to design, enhance, and produce contract drawings and to save their work in either DGN or DWG format.”
