OpenMind Voting Makes Impact on Software

Since launching OpenMind in 2012 to help steer future development of SDS/2, Design Data has implemented a number of enhancements as a direct result of your input. Some of the ideas completed and released in the software include: the option for a smart pointer with submaterial piecemark; the option to choose between serviceability and strength for SC bolts; the ability to show existing members as hidden lines when detailing erection views; status report by sheet; and an update through parametrics.

The release of SDS/2 2014 will include even more ideas voted on through OpenMind:

  • Ability to add curved grid lines
  • Option to rotate/mirror during Material Copy and Move
  • Linear or Fill option with Material Copy
  • Option for end-cut type in Member Edit dialog
  • Option to turn off Member Orientation Indicator (MOI) when detailing erection views
  • Display option for member end elevation
  • Erection view member labels
  • Ability to have more than three Bills of Material on a sheet
