With HELiOS 2023, the latest version of our PDM system is now available.
In this version, too, one of the development focuses was on the further expansion of MultiCAD interface. The Open, with options function, for example, can be called up directly in the HELiOS Ribbon of Inventor and SOLIDWORKS and also offers file type-specific options when opening a document. For example, the express mode can be selected for Inventor assemblies called up from HELiOS, or the mode can be opened for checking when opening SOLIDWORKS assemblies of large designs. When saving HiCAD designs in HELiOS, the complete sheet structure is now also transferred to HELiOS and displayed in the model structure, so that the individual sheets can now also be printed. When using the EPLAN integration module, part synchronisation, attribute mapping and product structure matching have been significantly improved. HELiOS 2023 also supports the latest versions of the following programs: AutoCAD (Mechanical) 2023, Inventor 2023, Navisworks 2023 and EPLAN 2022.
In addition to the enhancements of the MultiCAD interfaces, further developments have been implemented. For example, the import/export and printing of documents offer extended setting/attribute assignment options for the generation of file names. And with the help of the Server Monitor, the runnability of HELiOS server applications such as the Vault Server or the Spooler can be monitored, so that settings can be adjusted if problems occur.
