Lable info

Postby Nick M Singer » Mon, Sep 19 2005, 11:59PM

Does Thermwood have any intention of putting size info onto the lables and layout diagrams? All the info is there in the system how difficult can this be?

So does this not even warrant an answer, even if it is in the negative?

Nick,

I spoke with Jason yesterday and he said this info could be added it just has to be reformated. That portion of the software is owned by another company and that company will have to make the changes. Thats another reason why we can't easily get a copy of rolling nest for our PC. I guess it comes down to how many of us want this feature. The ideal thing to do is make that printing section more customizable, so everyone can choose exactly what they want.

Hi Nick,

Eventually we want to add Crystal Reports software to ours. There are license fees and other things that we have to consider when doing this plus the time to program.

Thanks Guys
It would be really useful to get this kind of info along with easily generated assembly sheets. It helps my staff keep track of all the parts when trying to assemble etc.

Further to dimension info it would also be useful to have the size of the material that the parts are being cut out of displayed. This is especially pertinent to situautions where one is using off cuts that are similar in size and it is difficult to work out which piece is being asked for. Rolling nest has the tendancy to stretch things a little out of proportion so if you are using a whole lot of manually entered small offcuts it is difficult to tell which is which.
