The new Tebis Version V4.0 User Interface
Everyone's enthusiastic about our new user interface! We've done a thorough revamp and update, while still preserving the proven features.
The user interface features a new visual design. The graphic background has color blending; the interface’s look features modern colors as well as updated typography. The function panel is still gray, and the familiar Tebis blue will be used in the future to highlight the selected functions. The dark color scheme used for the display is designed to optimize daily work on the monitor, to be easy on the eyes, and to make work easier thanks to improved contrasts.
As in the past, the function panel is positioned in the right margin and provides intuitive access to the functions using self-explanatory icons. The status bar has been significantly reduced to provide maximum space for graphics. The dialog design has been revised and adapted to align with verified knowledge of and experience with ergonomics. Important information like the number of open files and their sizes is always available.
“Our goal was to offer our customers a new user interface that provides excellent possibilities for interaction and is highly functional yet fun. We’re confident that we’ve succeeded,” said Peter Obermaier, the responsible project manager.
Flexible, individual, interactive
The new interface lets you show and hide menus in the function panel as needed. This allows users to individually configure the work area. Also very important: Freely designed work environments can be saved and managed. The program specifies work environments that are targeted for certain applications. In addition, you can configure your workstation to meet your needs and use the configuration again at any time. For example, you can keep frequently used CAD modules open in your work space for manufacturing design and switch to your work environment with preferred CAM modules for NC programming. It’s not just users who work with multiple monitors who will welcome this function. Work environments can also be imported and exported for exchange with other Tebis workstations.
The new user interface provides significantly more feedback than the previous one, which should be very beneficial. One especially interesting feature during offscreen calculation is that Tebis allows up to six NC calculations to be initiated in multiple open CAD files. Thanks to the progress indicator covering multiple parts, you always have an overview of the processing status in your files. For example, you always know when you can continue working on an urgent project. Any errors that occur during the calculations are immediately communicated to you − also across multiple files. You can view detailed descriptions of notes, warnings and errors via a message list and get instructions, for example, on how to remedy errors.
