Display of Results and 3D-CAD Output

PackAssistant provides meaningful 3D images within a packing report, which in particular allows the ideal basis for the creation of specific commercial quotes. The customer can see straightaway how the objects should be arranged in the available space. Until now this had to be done by laborious drawings or graphs.

Packing reports are generated as Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Word documents. You can adjust the layout of the document to the needs of your company. Additionally the results can be exported as CAD-datasets in the formats JT, STEP and VRML. This allows a more descriptive representation of the packing arrangement to be created, which can, when desired, also be included within the packing report. A 3D-viewer software can show individual sections and views of the packing arrangement.

Packing reports are generated as Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Word documents. Detailed images make it easy for the user to put the suggested packing instructions into practice.
