Oracle’s AutoVue 20.1.1 for Agile PLM is now available on Oracle’s Software Delivery Cloud. This latest release allows Agile PLM customers to take advantage of new AutoVue 20.1.1 features in the following Agile PLM environments (9.3.1.x; 9.3.0.x; 184.108.40.206+).
AutoVue 20.1.1 has several improvements, but I'd like to highlight 3 areas that will be important for Agile customers.
New Format Support: AutoVue 20.1.1 adds support for the latest versions of popular file formats including:
- AutoCAD 2012
- AutoCAD Mechanical 2012
- Inventor 2012
- Unigraphics NX7 and NX7.5
- Adobe Acrobat 10
PDF is one of the most popular formats being used by Agile customers today. It is used as an archival format, as well as a publishing standard for design information, manufacturing instructions, customer requirements, and safety and regulatory information.
AutoVue 20.1.1 has improved the viewing of PDF
files with better navigation and zooming behaviour by providing more intuitive zoom
levels while searching, switching pages, or moving between markups in a PDF
Converting CAD designs to PDF is a common practice for many Agile customers. AutoVue 20.1.1 provides greater flexibility with PDF measurements by introducing snapping measurements. If a CAD design has been converted to a vector-based PDF, AutoVue 20.1.1 can take accurate measurements from the PDF, by snapping to points and shapes in the design. This unlocks the valuable data contained in the file and provides more information to people on the shop floor.
AutoVue 20.1.1 adds the ability to select, copy, and paste text from PDF files, improving the efficiency with which feedback can be delivered. During reviews, requirements and regulations can now be copied and pasted directly into markups, providing further explanation behind the decisions being made.
Improved Troubleshooting and Stability:
AutoVue 20.1.1 includes improvements to the stability, reliability, and server uptime for users by facilitating the identification, logging, and quarantine of problematic files on a server. For example, if the server crashes, the administrator is provided with a list of all files that were open on the server at the time of the crash. Doing this greatly reduces the amount of time admins need to spend tracking down these files and once found, they can restrict file access so that no further crashes will be caused.
