Text markup annotations

Use the text mark up feature to annotate your drawing. This gives you the ability to place text anywhere on your drawing but does not make any changes to your underlying drawing.  You can control the size, color and font plus you have a text markup pointer to point to areas on your drawing as well!  It is  available under the menu item Drawing\Add Text Markup.


Whiteout function

Use the white out function (CTRL-W) to hide the snap rectangles and balloons you created on the drawing. This helps you determine what ballooning you missed and allows you to renumber balloons for their proper sequence.


Enter data for multiple characteristics

Use our requirements or results batch edit icon function to enter data on multiple characteristics with just a few clicks.  For requirements or results, click on the rows in the BoC where you want to make data changes.  You can multi-select (CTRL key) or select a contiguous number of rows (Shift key).  Then right-click on the selections and choose Edit Multiple-Characteristics and make your changes.  That simple!

Client Comments

“We are striving to eliminate the amount of time spent transferring PC-DMIS CMM Report results, onto the inspection reports as well as the FAI reports. DISCUS CMM is a great tool for this task, with the new CSV format in the DISCUS CMM module it will become less time consuming to achieve this goal.  We look forward to working with DISCUS.” – Alejandra Ortega, CMM Programmer, Magellan Aerospace – Ellanef Mfg. Corp.

“This software tool has saved valuable time in report preparation. By simply ballooning and capturing a feature, the software writes text to the AS9102 form. DISCUS is a great product!” – James Bryan, Quality Assurance Inspector, Micro Craft Inc.

“DISCUS takes the potential for human error out of the equation and has checking points to ensure you’re in line with FAI standards.”– Joe Murphy, Chairman, Ferco Tech, Inc

“Since we have purchased the DISCUS software we have not only applied DISCUS to our First Article and Final Inspection planning, we have also applied the techniques to our First Piece Inspection program. As a result we as a company have cut our document creation time by 200% which helps keep Aerostar Aerospace at the forefront of American Manufacturing. My customers could not be happier with us because of this, and in turn, we could not be happier with DISCUS. ” – Patrick Montgomery, Quality Manager, Aerostar Aerospace Manufacturing
