Configura has released CET Designer 11.0, the latest version of its space-planning software solution, which features a new tool called “View clips,” a new auto-tagging function and a number of other new tools and updates.
The View clips tool replaces 2D Viewports and has improved performance and capabilities. It enables faster refreshing, different shapes and the ability to rotate clips 360 degrees.
Another new functionality in CET Designer 11.0 is auto-tagging, which has been added to both the 2D and 3D toolbars. When enabled, auto-tagging allows users to pick one or more Part tags that will be automatically applied to all objects placed thereafter, the same as if a user tagged those objects using the Tag individually tool.
Additional features include updating the CAD Settings dialog, standardized Categories, a new measure tool added to Quick Property fields, Revision Cloud updates, detailed tooltips and much more.
Manufacturers in the material handling industry use CET Designer because the software can handle complex products and adds bandwidth to engineering departments. CET Designer is Configura's “core” Parametric Graphical Configuration (PGC)-based software platform. An Extension is an addition to the program with functionality that incorporates all of the rules, parts and pricing of a given manufacturer's products.
