January, 2017 GraphiCode, a global provider of cost-effective, superior software innovations for electronics manufacturing, today announces the release of version 17.1 of its full product suite – GC-PowerPlatform.
Jump to Arc Center
This new function is part of the Jump suite of tools and, as you expected will jump the crosshair to the center of the nearest selected arc. The function is accessed via the right click pop-up menu under the Jump… entry and has been given the default shortcut key Shift+J.
The function would be useful in finding the center of a round board or in determining the center of one arc in order to create additional data using the same location.
Attribute removal during Merge Job
An option has been added to the Tools > Customize > Options tab to allow attributes to be removed during the Merge Job process. Attributes were being taken into account when determining if traces and pads were unique during the Merge process. This led to excessive time being taken to Merge large datasets together. This user controlled option allows faster merging without affecting the resulting image. Default behavior is to behve as the current release (maintain attributes).
Added numerous Plugin functions
A number of plugin functions have been added to enhance the customization of the product. Details can be found within the Intellisense for the plugin.
