The Spare Parts business is essentially an important area for all suppliers of devices, machinery and equipment. At the same time the providing of needed documentation causes high costs: drawings must be created, supplemented with meta-data and provided in digital or printed form - this is a time-, resource- and cost factor not to be underestimated.
Our video tutorial will guide you through the application and show you how to use it effectively.
The menu screen shows the available data in folders. The root view offers two different folders: cloud and local. If you run the application for the first time the local data node will not be available (local data is available when downloading a cloud model) and the viewer immedialtely shows
