Shaping the Future of Electrical Documentation: WSCAD Unveils Cabinet AR App with Redlining Function
The Cabinet AR App, a part of WSCAD’s Electrical-CAD solution, is redefining standards in electrical engineering documentation for assembly departments, plant builders, facility managers, maintenance and service companies. Users can access digital wiring lists, electrical schematics, 3D views of components, item data, and manufacturer data sheets anytime and anywhere, all without the need for paperwork and always updated with the latest technology.
The new version of the Cabinet AR App introduces features designed to streamline workflows. These include the innovative redlining with PDF export, a contemporary and intuitive UI/UX design, and a powerful search function that quickly locates information within the schematics. The term ‘redlining’, originating from the printing and publishing industry, refers to marking changes on technical drawings, schematics, contracts, or other documents, and highlighting them for immediate notice. With WSCAD’s Cabinet AR App on their smartphone, users can make changes and annotations in their electrical documentation.
These changes are immediately available to all parties involved, including the design departments. This enhances communication, fosters transparency and ensures traceability.
“With our new Cabinet AR App, users can easily find a component’s information within the schematic. With the new redlining feature, changes and annotations are directly added to the schematic,” explains Michael Hermann, Product Development at WSCAD. “This makes the Cabinet AR App ideal for maintenance personnel and electrical professionals who want to keep all data of their facilities up to date and digitally available at their fingertips. Carrying hefty paper documents to the construction site or the shop floor is over.”
The Cabinet AR App also provides a quick search function for alternative products through the free online article database wscaduniverse.com. The App is an integral part of WSCAD’s Electrical-CAD solution and can be downloaded for free from the App Store and Google Play.
