Discover Cover’s new software improvements – winter 2020

The last few months have been busy for Cover Group. This autumn we released version 2.2 of the Cover 3D software with, among other things, some exciting new features.

Cover is constantly adding and enriching its software to satisfy their customers as much as possible. This December, we made several changes to existing features to improve your experience with the tool.

Flat roofs: update of the Cover supplier’s construction library

You asked for it, now it’s done!

Cover has now improved its management of flat roofs. You can now add a parametric shape with a dome, which you can deform directly with parameters. We have also added a model in the Cover library based on these parametric shapes so that you can use it more easily.

And that’s not all: gutters, poles, risers, rafters and ridges have also received a library update to give them a more modern design. Handy when you need to convince a customer with your construction.

Improvements in manual assembly

Have you noticed an error in the calculation of profile elongation in manual mode? The problem has now been solved: whether you calculate your profiles in automatic or manual mode, the settings are perfect right down to the end of the… materials!

After-Sales Service Module

And since improvement never comes alone, we have also modified our after-sales service module to be as close as possible to our customers’ needs. Thanks to this module, you can calculate a specific part of your construction. Whether it is screws, profiles or gutters, Cover 3D takes all items into account if you wish to provide after-sales service to your customers.

Even more improvements

  • The calculation note now takes into account articles that have undergone a colourisation procedure;
  • If some items were not displayed in your CAPE (Computer-Aided Production Engineering) order form, please note that we have corrected the calculation of quantities on items with nodes when deleting an opening. You can now issue your order form without any problem;
  • If you are using unpackaged items that have been automatically cut, your project will now be saved without any problem.

Many other improvements have been added in the last quarter of 2020, we have no doubt that they will be useful in your daily work. At Cover Group, we do our utmost to ensure that our software enhances the quality of your projects.
