The name says it all: WICTOP Genius. With the new software for metal work designing, WICONA presents a "genius" tool for simpler, faster and more reliable planning, design and calculation of façade, window and door constructions made of aluminium.
Users have long recognised WICTOP as an established player on the market for professional software with maximum practical focus. Its solution-oriented principle has been fully adhered to in the development of the upgrade WICTOP Genius – all the innovations in the software are based on suggestions and wishes of the users.
With the essential components of calculation and offers, bills of materials, cutting optimisation, views, cross-sections, ordering and manufacturing drawings, WICTOP Genius enables all the associated processes of object editing in 2D and 3D to be accurately controlled and implemented.
An essential feature of WICTOP Genius is its simpler and faster handling. The tree navigation, nowadays standard in PC applications for data sorting and archiving, supplements the current list display and is an important feature for an improved overview. A new feature is that projects can now be subdivided into lots (building sections). From the very first dialogue, WICTOP Genius presents a richness of information allowing users to reach their objectives faster than current versions of the software. The entire two-dimensional part is easier to manage and completion times are shortened, which speeds up the processing time of order handling.
Settings can be made from the first level. Constructions consisting of only a single pane can now be modified via fast edit, and changes made during data input are easier to implement.
Higher energy efficiency is a core theme for new constructions and renovations. Using WICTOP Genius, planners and metal builders can prove to their customers the degree to which façades, windows and doors as components of the building envelope help save energy and protect the climate. Characteristic of the practical focus of WICTOP Genius are the functions for calculation of the thermal transmission coefficient (U-value) and the option to create an EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) at one click of the mouse.
