SigmaTEK started 2016 with the long-awaited release of SigmaNEST X1. Filled to the brim with new features and updates, X1 has lots to offer to both our current and prospective customers who are looking for a fast, easy, and cost-effective nesting solution.
While the list of updates in X1 is long, three stand out which add great value for our customers. Our developers have completely overhauled the Filter Module to make it more interactive and dynamic. This allows users who are working with
complex geometry see the changes in that geometry as they adjust the filter settings. Previously, these features were accessible through a dialog box which did not update the geometry until all settings were entered and manually applied by the programmer. The new interactive sliders and dynamic geometry updates increase the speed and efficiency of the Filter Module for all our users.
In previous versions of SigmaNEST, there was a Verify Geometry check-box in the Interactive Mapping dialog. This allowed users to automatically verify their geometry and repair broken geometry. The only downside of this function was that all Repair Geometry settings had to be pre-set in the Geometry Edit dialog before import. Now, we’ve added a Repair Geometry tab to the Interactive Mapping dialog, which allows users to access these settings during import, instead of having to pre-set them.
Among other user-centered updates is the move of the Intelli-search function from the Quick Access Toolbar to the Status Bar. Previously, we had many users who were not aware of the function, or found it difficult to locate. Since this was a common complaint, our developers responded by moving it to a more convenient and prominent location.
These are just three of the many updates that have been released with X1. You can view a complete list of new features and updates here. We are confident our latest version adds exceptional value to our software.
Note: SigmaNEST X1 DVDs are expected to ship in the near future. In the meantime, current customers can download X1 via a high-speed internet connection by contacting SigmaTEK Support at 513.595.2002.
