Just in time for the EuroBLECH, AICON 3D Systems launches version 3.1 of the software platform BendingStudio. Especially user-friendliness was revised. Interconnected work at different workstations becomes even more efficient. The module DATA SERVICE is more transparent: Connections to other workstations are visibly displayed. The user sees network problems immediately and can directly restore the network connection. Furthermore, currently used components are marked in the selection lists. They are displayed in a separate info box; a lock symbol shows all connected operators who is actually working with the component. Applying the BendingStudio NETWORK SERVICE, users can store their data on a central server and still use them for measurements. Measurement results for the respective components are directly transmitted to the server. The software module ASSEMBLY is designed more user-friendly. It is applied to check holders and extensions with the help of AICON adapters. A wizard guides the operator through the configuration of the measuring adapters, which is clearly explained by means of pictograms. Based on a drawing, the target data of extensions can be gradually transmitted into the BendingStudio software. If all test criteria are already available in the component’s coordinate system, the implementation is reduced to just a few clicks. In the BendingStudio basic version, the ADVANCED BACKUP SERVICE was revised. It allows a complete data backup via timing or manual trigger. Older backups are not overwritten. In case of data recovery, the required version can be chosen via time information.
