Updated Online Help for Latest WorkXplore

WorkXplore has completely updated its online help in the latest version, to include new icons along with dialog and menu screen captures, so that user can easily recognize where they are in the help file.

The software was created to efficiently import and analyse all file types and sizes at high speed. It often takes less than half the time to open a file compared to the original CAD application, and Product Owner Luca Clerici says the new 2018 R2 version includes a number of items of new and enhanced functionality to save the user even more time and further improve their ability to perform part diagnostics, create assembly instructions, and prepare the production of 3D models.

These include displaying RGB colour for sheets. “Many customers said they needed the RGB code for surfaces, so we’ve added this to the Face Information dialog.”

Enhancements have been made to add more flexibility to operations, such as the introduction of the capability to define the rotation by vector, instead of two points, in the View Management.

A new ‘Triangles’ option shows or hides the current tessellation in the Change Entity Display menu. “The current shading remains optionally displayed on the screen if the ‘Triangles’ flag is activated by a right mouse click on the relevant entity.”

And the STEP Export function saves the model with respect to the active co-ordinate system. “If the current system axis is different from the absolute one, this important enhancement means the components can be translated relative to the co-ordinate system of the workplane,” says Luca Clerici.

Finally, WorkXplore 2018 R2 continues the software’s tradition of updating format support for around 25 systems. The main new capabilities are:

  • DXF/DWG support for 2018 files
  • Solid Edge ST10 Version support
  • SolidWorks 2018 Version support
  • UG NX NX12 Version support
