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.


The quantity and number of sheets doesn't matter: automatically recognize and evaluate all drawing entries (→Test characteristics) from 2D-CAD drawings (DXF, DWG, IGES, PDF). You can create complete and error-free →Test plan with just a few clicks of the mouse thanks to the stored tables for general tolerances.

Maintain an overview by dynamically linking the characteristics in the test plan with the labeled entries on the drawing (→Stamp method). By comparing drawings, you can easily adapt test plans and stamped drawings to new drawing version statuses without having to create these from scratch.

You can then export the test plans into your test report application. All common CAQ software systems (→CAQ/MES) provide an integrated interface to infra CONVERT, so that you can edit the drawing from within your CAQ system and automatically apply the test plan.

An intuitively comprehensible user interface designed to handle the task in hand keeps training to a minimum.


You can adapt infra CONVERT to your company and customer-specific requirements thanks to the numerous setting options, e.g. the shape of the stamp or drawing entries deviating from the norms.

The software can be purchased with various functionalities. You can choose between the basic version and the pro version. The “IGES” module is offered as an add-on to the basic and pro versions. The main differences in the functional ranges are shown in the following comparison.

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.
