For CAD users, there are few things more frustrating than having to perform repetitive, time-consuming and boring tasks. Good managers are equally concerned when they watch their experienced designers spending a lot of time performing clerical tasks, like data entry, instead of… designing. A few examples of workflows that users hate the most involve opening each file in a job and sometimes switching through each configuration of every file in a job for:.
Figure 1. A few years ago, I was providing consulting services to a company whose design team was complaining about significant slowdowns when they were working with large assemblies. Very early in the troubleshooting process, we identified one of the most important causes of the slowdowns: a high Image Quality setting in all of their documents. Figure 2. Very high Image Quality setting. Such a high setting generates a large number of graphics-triangles, which causes two major symptoms:.
Figure 3. Image Quality setting vs File Size case study. Figure 4. Image Quality setting vs Number of Graphics Triangles case study. It was easy enough to fix the problem for future files by simply adjusting the Image Quality setting in the part and assembly templates, but there was no simple answer for fixing the thousands of files their team generated over the years. At a minimum, there are 8 clicks in this process. In practice, there are even more.
Also, files could take seconds or minutes to open and save, so using a manual process would have been impractical. Moreover, by manually moving the slider, the settings will most likely end up being different from file to file.
Figure 5. That would probably have worked, but this tool has several limitations in its functionality. The most important were:. Instead, I started to research if there was an alternative already available.
This was how I learned that, sometimes, there are benefits to having nearly half a day time difference between North America and Australia. More importantly, it gives users access to a library of over one hundred existing macros. Figure 6. The installation process is straightforward and painless. Figure 7. Figure 8. Warning pop-up. Figure 9. Installation progress bar. Figure TASK account registration. Selecting settings. Options tab. Administration tab. To prepare the deliverables for manufacturing and suppliers, you must perform several tasks for each file:.
You can also use filters to narrow down the type of files to be processed. To use filters, you can use the Part, Assembly or Drawings icons, or you can type a text string containing wildcards in the filter field.
Filters for targeting specific types of files for processing. Selecting macros for processing a job. Finding information by browsing is time-consuming. Instead I will simply use the Search function to quickly find the macros I need:. Image Quality task. Orientate to Isometric task.
Update and Save task. Export Flat Patterns task. Save PDF task. Note that you might encounter macros designated as Standard, Professional or Premium. Currently, all macros are available to all users. According to Artem, even if at some future time Central Innovation were to offer users the option of paying for Professional or Premium levels, the existing Standard macros would still remain free.
The order of processing the macros can be important for efficient file processing. If needed, the macros can be reordered by simply dragging their names up or down in the Task list. Image Quality Arguments.
Orientate to Isometric. Zoom to Fit, Rebuild and Save. Output File Name options. Setting the units. Setting the Export Options. Options for Output File Names. Setting Options. Save to PDF. Selecting this icon switches between processing only the active configuration and all configurations.
Note : For specific jobs, the you might need the files to be opened in read-only mode. TASK can be configured to enable read-only file processing, as shown in Figure Files can be modified or opened as read-only. Time to run the job. Job status. Notice that in Figure 38 the software is accurately reporting that only parts containing Sheet Metal Bodies were successfully processed by the Export Flat Pattern task.
By using TASK, in just a few minutes I completed multiple tasks that would have required several hours if performed manually. Job done! I asked Artem to answer a few questions for the readers of www. For the last 6. A: Our technical team consists of software developers and QA engineers. Some of the team members have mechanical engineering backgrounds, while others have information technology backgrounds. This allows us to apply best development practices and technology while having a deep subject knowledge.
The extended TASK team consists of management, sales, support and marketing teams. Although they are not a direct part of the TASK team, their continuous feedback, help and support have guided us in the right direction and allowed us to mature the product. A: TASK was a bit of an experimental tool.
The main aim was to develop something simple and useful at the same time. There are several great batch processing tools already on the market. But there is always room for improvement. We wanted to develop a tool which makes the installation and update process a single-click operation. Our priority was to standardize the user interface across all tasks and make the usage as intuitive as possible.
A: TASK can be useful in both scenarios. With over tasks in the library, everyone will be able to find something useful. TASK supports command-line parameters, and some of our users have managed to integrate the TASK automation into their business workflows. What are the safety and security concerns you receive from prospective users? A: TASK is a batch operations tool.
Batch processes enable great benefits but at the same time may be disastrous as a misconfigured task can unexpectedly modify thousands or hundreds of thousands of files.
We consider this as a major risk. We have tried to introduce additional safety mechanisms such as enabling the automatic backup of files when running the task or an option to open the files in read-only mode. TASK is leveraging modern technology by Microsoft allowing the installation without administrative rights granting only permissions necessary for the application —in contrast to typical Windows Installers where administrative rights are always required.
A: We appreciate all of the feedback and ideas and try to include as much as possible into our development plan. The best option to communicate would be to send an email to sharp.
In [a forthcoming] version of TASK 2. The main improvement is support of plug-ins. Our users will be able to customize TASK with extensions available from the library. These include but are not limited to ability to group tasks in tabs, ability to define the conditions workflow for tasks, ability to load reference trees and drawings from assembly, etc.
