Assembling with WSi4

WSi4 supports the creation of interactive 3D assembling instructions that run on every device featuring a modern web browser. These offer many advantages over standard document-based assembling instructions:

  • Less work to create
  • No fixed viewing angles that potentially hide important aspects
  • The user’s three-dimensional comprehension of the task is greatly enhanced
  • More details for each assembling step
  • Deployment via web server which removes the need for saving local copies
  • Fewer texts and thus also reduced overhead for internationalization

Technical drawings

Technical drawings

WSi4 supports its users with the creation of technical drawings.

It generates all necessary technical bend drawings to allow for quality control right at the press brake.

This is done directly from the 3D model and fully automatic.
