Version 8.0 include enhancements to DISCUS Desktop, OCR, Planner and 3D DISCUS products. Key features to the software update include:
- Bill of Characteristics-Redesigned for Ease of Use – The Bill of Characteristics has been designed with function and speed for all users. All the data you need to have is visible with tabs such as Requirements, Results, Parts List, Material and Process and Functional Test in easy to use and see tabs. If you don’t want to view these tabs, easily remove them from view.
- Improved OCR Pattern Recognition – Now includes support for GD&T symbols as well as improved translation for Feature Control Frames. Better recognition of numeric values such as the number 1 when it represents like an I.
- Auto Sub Balloon Option – If you need to automatically copy and paste a requirement but make the copies sub balloons this can be an automatic feature you will use every day. With OCR if a diameter is 4X or 4 PL, balloon this with the function checked and the parent balloon will display with sub balloons that are partially hidden. This is ideal when you need to unclutter the drawing with many sub balloons but have visibility to the required data.
