Cabriís background images and images attached to points bring your geometry to life and allow more realistic modelling. With Cabri you can use compact JPEGs, rather than bulky bitmaps. Also, these graphics can be transformed with intermediate pictures showing. Cabri pictures can be resized dynamically.
Animation and Colour
More powerful animation facilities and colour possibilities are available.
Locus faster and smoother
Trace points smoothly to show the path of the locus. Loci are objects within Cabri. Locus intersection points exist. It's also possible to have a locus controlled by a point on a grid. (More detail here.)
Smart Lines technology
The new “Smart Lines” technology helps clarity by displaying only the necessary portions of lines if you wish, to avoid on-screen clutter. This is not only neater, but helps concentration on the essential elements and avoids otherwise distracting unwanted extrusions. Alternatively, lines and objects can be hidden from view.
The arrow heads at the ends of the visible portion of smart lines indicate their mathematical continuance. They are Smart because they intelligently adapt to the needs of the construction. If smart lines are moved so that an intersection occurs, then they will extend to reveal that intersection, for example. Only the necessary portions are shown.
