infra CONVERT | At a glance



infra CONVERT takes over a large part of your work in drawing-based test plans. The software supports you in creating automated, and therefore quick and reliable, test plans from →technical drawings, e.g. for initial sampling or statistical process control.

Load as many drawing sheets as you like into one infra CONVERT project. Different file formats are possible.

Have the test characteristics from all drawing entries automatically recognised (→Drawing data format) and evaluated. Using the provided tables for general tolerances, you can create complete and error-free test plans with just a few mouse clicks.

Keep an overview by dynamically linking the characteristics in the inspection plan with the marked entries in the drawing.

Afterwards, export the test plans to your test report application. Many common CAQ/MES software systems (Our partners) provide an integrated interface to infra CONVERT so that you can edit the drawing and automatically transfer the inspection plan from your CAQ system. Alternatively, you can simply use the integrated Export to Microsoft Excel.

With the drawing comparison, you can easily adapt test plans and stamped drawings to new drawing version statuses - without having to create them from scratch.

An intuitively understandable user interface tailored to the tasks reduce the training effort to a minimum.

Numerous setting options allow you to adapt infra CONVERT to your company and customer-specific needs, for example the shape of the stamps or drawing entries that deviate from standards.

The advantages over the previous software

Why is it worth switching from the previous product infra - CONVERT to the new infra CONVERT?

Number of sheets

Any number of drawing sheets can be loaded into a project.

Test plan versioning

Test plans can be versioned conveniently, across sheets and are traceable in the project.

Characteristic recognition

Automatic characteristic recognition and description is now even more accurate and reliable.

Stamp PDF

Coded text in PDF drawings can be stamped automatically.

DWG/DXF format

Current DWG and DXF drawing file versions (up to AutoCAD 2021) are supported.

Display

Drawing contents are hardware accelerated and displayed in better quality.

Intuitive handling

An intuitive user interface and modern software technologies accelerate the work.

Excel export

For the export to Microsoft Excel, no add-in is needed anymore. Test report templates are even easier to design yourself. More

Continued development

New functions are constantly being added, such as filtering by characteristic properties or hiding already stamped characteristics.

Licensing

The licensing is realized without a hardware dongle. More


Note   Some functions are only available in the Pro version, see above.
