1. Importing Drawing to Viswa IR Gen File
In a Single Viswa IR Gen File, you can manage Many Drawing Files Data. By doing this, you can avoid creating Master Entries multiple time. If you organise all your drawings, depending on the Customers or Type of Components that you manufacture, the Number of Viswa IR Gen Files to be created will be Less, which results in better Management of Files.
2. Assigning Properties to Dimensions for Easy Filtering
When you import the Drawing to Viswa IR Gen File, if PDF is Text Searchable PDF, the program will import all the Dimensions, and you will have many Dimensions in the drawing. If you have many dimensions, then selecting them from the big list will take time, and if there are dimensions with the same or similar values, you may find it challenging to choose the correct measurements when working in various windows.
To help you filter the Dimensions easily, if you assign a Grid value to each dimension or group the dimension based on Views, it will be handy. Viswa IR Gen includes intelligent tools to Quickly Create the Grid and Views.
3. Merge and split Dimension Text to assign Balloon Number
When you import the Drawing to Viswa IR Gen File, if PDF is Text Searchable PDF, then there are possibilities that dimension, which is too close, might have been imported as a single Dimension. Similarly, if the dimension texts are apart, Single Dimension might have been imported as multiple dimensions.
Also, there will be some dimensions for which you want to assign multiple dimensions.
In such cases, you have to Merge Dimensions or Split dimension to match with the Balloon value and tools are provided in Viswa IR Gen to get the result fast.
4. Adding New Dimension for Ballooning
When you import the Drawing to Viswa IR Gen File, if PDF is Digital PDF, then the program will import all the Dimensions when you add a PDF as a drawing in Viswa IR Gen.
When your PDF is not a Searchable Text PDF, then the program will not import the Dimensions. Viswa IR gen allows you to add dimensions for Ballooning in various ways.
1. Adding New Dimension with Manual Entry:
If the program does not recognise the dimensions or incorrectly recognises the measurements, you can still add dimension to the drawing by manually entering the dimension value.
2. Create New Dimension from Image:
Select three corners of the dimension to create an imaginary boundary. Using Machine Learning and Advanced OCR Techniques, Viswa IR Gen will identify the dimension and create dimension.
5. Mark Dimensions as Balloons
Once the dimensions are imported or added to Drawing, you can mark the Dimension as Balloons
6. Apply Balloon Numbers
After identifying the dimensions to be marked as Balloons, you can assign Balloon Numbers to all the selected Dimensions / Text, and you can do this manually or automatically.
7. Assign Features to Balloon
8. Add Characteristics/Measuring Instruments
After assigning the Features to Dimensions, you can assign Characteristics & Measuring Instruments to Dimension. This process helps you in generating PFC / CP and Inspection Reports.
9. Generate Reports
Once you import Dimension, Assign Balloon numbers and respective properties to Balloon, you can get the results such as Ballooned PDF File, Inspection Report, PFC & CP Repots.
