With this release, we’re excited to bring you some long-overdue changes to the AutoInterface Application!
New AutoInterface Publisher
AutoInterface is CadActive’s tool for automatically accurately copying component geometry into an assembly skeleton. It allows you to create large numbers of copy geometry features at once without generating troublesome external references. Publisher for AutoInterface is the tool for automating the creation of published geometry and interface features in parts.
In this month’s release, the Publisher for AutoInterface has been completely re-engineered from the ground up with a brand new user interface and expanded publishing capabilities.
The new user interface provides a simple overview of published and publishable geometry in the model. The geometry is displayed in two side by side geometry trees. Publishing or unpublishing geometry is as simple as moving the geometry from one tree to the other using the arrow buttons. The capabilities of the Publisher have also been expanded to include the ability to publish axes, points, and planes (with the ability to publish surfaces coming soon).
Web Application Improvements
We’re also excited to bring you some new usability features for our web application! Throughout the web application, there are some times when data can’t be edited or destroyed – (because of user permissions, data dependencies, license permissions, etc.). So, to help clear up confusion, we’ve added a new framework for Tooltips to quickly highlight “why” a field or a set of data may be locked.
We’re always looking to improve our applications… so if you have any comments, thoughts, or ideas that you would like to see in the applications, please reach out! We’d love to hear your feedback.
Stay tuned next month for even more exciting changes!
