  • Minor change in the Group Sequence tool if the lines are cuts

 

Universal Bolt Hole Patterns

  • select holes more quickly and efficiently.
  • reduce the time it takes to make a die-board.
  • create a wood edge around the sheet with expected proper horizontal split to begin the hole selection process when starting the tool.
  • adjust all elements like: die edge, die splits, layout position and rotary bolt holes patter position, and modify bolt holes with a single tool.
  • start in die-board layer, die-split will be added if necessary, if die-board doesn’t exist.
  • Show good and all holes options
  • Select/deselect individual holes (allow drag rectangle)
  • Select/deselect rows and columns
  • Delete holes
  • Select individual holes with symmetry about split option.

Enhancements in ArtiosCAD Enterprise:
Additional BOM Support

Auto include documents to the BOM when saving or copying:

  • saves the designer time of opening the BOM dialog and changing the settings

auto include to BOM

Add non-ARD’s to a BOM:

  • allows for complete BOM to be defined in ArtiosCAD
  • including graphic files, clips, hooks, inserts, etc.
  • no need to create extraneous ARD document just to include it in a BOM

  • single click will open all BOM documents
  • will save much time over opening each file individually

Enhancements in ArtiosCAD Enterprise:
Enterprise Browser GUI Improvements

Run outputs & exports from the browser:

  • run an output on document
  • search results from the browser
  • run exports on project documents from the browser
  • run a project BOM report from the browser
  • no need to open each document in ArtiosCAD before running an output, export or report
  • eliminates a lot of wasted steps/time

Run outputs exports

Document count on folders:

  • see the number of documents in folders (as in WebCenter)
  • eliminates the need to select a folder first, just to see there are no documents in it

Edit document details from the browser:

  • no need to open the document to change document details like attributes & characteristics
  • eliminates the wasted time of opening and saving a document just to change details
  • prevents new version being created when document details (meta data) are changed

Additional features:

  • ArtiosCAD honors the project statuses as set in WebCenter. Only the project status as defined in the template will be accessible. This eliminates the risk of using an invalid status.
  • Save Collada as native WebCenter file type with thumbnail. That way Collada files will have a thumbnail preview of the 3D image.
  • Native Collada viewing for 3D files – no more Cortona plug-in needed.
