Version 11.1 of all GraphiCode products released

GraphiCode, a global provider of cost-effective, superior software innovations for electronics manufacturing, today announces the release of version 11.1 of its full product suite – GC-PowerPlatform.

New Features

Layer Compare Overhaul

The Layer Compare function has been totally redesigned to provide more understandable and more accurate information regarding the differences between layers

Faster ODB++ loading

The ODB++ loading time has been dramatically shortened with results being most noticeable on very large database files. Examples show reductions for 300+ MB files being reduced from 150 minutes to 8 minutes with no loss of information.

Faster and cleaner DXF/DWG Import

A significant amount of data cleanup is now performed on DXF and DWG files being imported into the GWK database.

Certain constructions have been converted from small straight-line segments into singular arcs with a dramatic reduction on file size and number of data elements. Other constructions are now automatically converted to flashed, round pads upon import. As well as reducing the number of elements contained within each layer these improvements have significant ripple-down advantages in terms of draw-speed, selection and conversion time.

The GC-PowerPlatform suite of products runs on the industry standard Windows platform, essentially eliminating the need to run expensive workstations. Flexible input and powerful outputs combined with enhanced CAM functionality result in higher throughput and lower costs. The Annual Support Plan (not necessary for GC-Prevue) continues to provide exceptional value for money with support provided on an as needed basis and four scheduled updates per year.
