Smap3D Plotting is the optimal extension
for Smap3D EDM/PDM.
Smap3D Plotting consists of two software packages: administrator and client. The administrator is installed on a central computer which has Solid Edge. The client is free of charge and can be installed on any number of computers. The user selects the Solid Edge drafts required and sends the job at the click of a button to the Plotting administrator, which distributes the drawings to the printer or plotter according to the predetermined timetable.
The assignation of printer and sheet size
is defined in administrator.
No specialist knowledge is required for plotting. Members of the purchasing or manufacturing departments no longer require and engineer?s help if they need a plot of a drawing. They can simply do it themselves ? without a Solid Edge license and without Solid Edge know-how.
Together with Smap3D PDM an even more powerful project plot is available.
Using Smap3D PartFinder, the project assembly required is selected. In the database, all the drafts linked to this assembly, sub-assemblies and parts, are found. The searching and plotting of all the drafts belonging to this assembly is done automatically: again, a huge saving in time!
