Common features / functions of the plugin
|The plugin is started with "Insert". After starting, you have full access to all content - seamlessly integerated into your system.|
|The plugin can also be started with „Replace“ - it will just follow with the replace procedure, asking for a selected product to be replaced (if nothing is selected).|
|„Support“ connects you with our customer service to ask for assistance. A new window will open that displays all plugin relevant settings. it also enables you to collect and retrieve additional information to narrow down system settings for your request.|
The plugin starts with the list of all manufacturer / allows to find your object knowing the manufacturer.
|The full-text search can be used:|
When having identified / found a product - the exact variant can be configured. In the top area all possible options are available, in the bottom area will appear a 3D preview of the variant in real-time. At the very bottom there is the button to transfer the product variant to your target system.
After exporting to your system, the object is pinned to the mouse cursor for individual placement using the features of your CAD system.
Replacing works similar as inserting. The only difference is that we suggest to have an object in your CAD selected before calling replace - otherwise this will be requested.
The plugin also allows to replace all identical instances of your selected object:
The plugin then asks if it should open the object - if recognized - that was selected in CAD. [Yes] opens the exact recognized variant. [No] opens the plugin and starts either with the manufacturers list or the last used product.
