What’s new?

WM | Quartis R2018-2 offers a wide range of improvements for all users and significantly contributes to optimize daily metrology work.

WM | Quartis R2018-2 simplifies and improves the operation in the program work window. This allows programs to be edited more efficiently.

The split view allows you to see what is being processed before or after the execution of a program.

WM | Quartis R2018-2 offers new fields and functions in the expression editor. With the new fields, you can output information about the WM | Quartis version and the active measurement database in a measurement report. Date/time information can be formatted as required. The EXTRACT string function can be used to extract specific values from a list with separators. In combination with the IncludeText function, values can also be read from a CSV file.

WM | Quartis R2018-2 calculates new elements based on existing elements with mathematical formulas. Elements can now be completely defined by expressions.

WM | Quartis R2018-2 names the elements in components with mould cavities, pins, drilling patterns, etc. descriptive and practical. The automatically proposed element IDs are generated according to a configurable pattern.

WM | Quartis R2018-2 improves the operation in the graphics work window. The measuring sphere is displayed exactly at the actual position, regardless of the configuration. A keyboard shortcut accelerates switching between different graphics tools. Moved info boxes can be reset to their original position in one operation.
