Blog Tutorial – SPOOLCAD 2020 – Global Weld Extraction

PROCAD’s Blog Tutorials are part of our continued effort to help customers learn and use the software effectively. Along with our complimentary PROCAD Software Tutorials, these short videos expand the users’ knowledge base of the software.

We listen to our customers! More choices, more flexibility with PROCAD software!

With SPOOLCAD 2020 software, a new extraction format for the weld mapping data has been added. The original routine does a cumulative total for all welds in a set of project drawings. In contrast, the new extraction format does a similar extraction, but drawing by drawing, leaving the weld mapping to each individual drawing.

Watch the tutorial video below. It’s a quick overview of the new feature.

Be sure to keep checking the PROCAD Blog section. Tutorials are routinely added to enhance your PROCAD software experience!

These Blog tutorials are also included with the appropriate software product under the “Tutorials” tab on the PROCAD homepage.
