All these products share one common feature: they have been developed and produced specifically to solve Glass Sector companies problems in the best possible way.
To satisfy the above mentioned requirement, R.O. has designed and produced a powerful Parametric Shape management system, perfectly integrated with its suite of optimization products. In addition to more than a hundred parametric shapes already available, this program allows creating an unlimited number of new ones by using a very simple Metalanguage. Each shape is a text file containing geometric instruction to draw the parametric shape. In the same file the default values characterizing the shape are contained.
The software Perfect Shape, thanks to its simple and user-friendly interface, represents an effective tool to use and exploit the companys shape collection. By using it, it is possible to select the shape and change its typical parameters. The shape will adapt automatically to the new parameters.
The main innovation is that new shapes can be added and/or modified very easily in the following ways:
Learning the use of the metalanguage to define new parametric shapes (a one-day course is enough to train an operator).
Modifying existing shapes (using a text editor Notepad) and saving the new ones with a different name, possibly after having changed the set parameters or added some element.
Addressing directly to R.O. for the definition of the most commonly used new parametric shapes of the company; in this case, R.O. would send via e-mail the relevant parametric file. Generally, the time needed for the definition of a shape ranges from 15 minutes to 2 hours for more complex ones.
Exchanging parametric shapes with other users (e.g. via e-mail or magnetic support).
Clicking on the shape in Windows Resource Management twice, it is displaced to the parametric shape directory, automatically launching Perfect Shape and displaying it. The user can therefore displace it, by using Perfect Shape, to the desired subdirectory using "Cut and paste". In the same way, it is possible to re-arrange the parametric shape library tree according to the company requirements.
The user can subdivide parametric shapes into categories different from the set ones by creating subdirectories, from Windows Resource Management, with the name to be given to the category. Placing parametric shapes into a directory (even changing the name) means assigning them to that category of shapes.
