Authentise is excited to announce our new Model Library! The model library feature allows you to store and curate common designs so that they are easily accessible for future use. This feature will make the order workflow more intuitive as it resembles a familiar online shopping experience. Users will be able to browse a gallery of model renders that can be easily selected and ordered. Without further ado, let's see how it looks!
Found within the Manage dropdown, the Model Library page will allow you to curate your individual Model Library. This library is generally used to store your Bureau's most common designs. This will allow them to be easily accessible while creating new orders. You could also use it to display previously manufactured designs or to show customers examples of what can be built. The model library holds two types of models: Products and Specimens.
Adding a model to the Model Library
There are two ways to add a model to the Model Library. Note: Specimens must be added to the Model Library using Method 1.
Method 1: Add Models within the Model Library Page
Method 2: Add Product Models directly from within an Order
Note: Models added this way are added to the Model Library as a Product. This type cannot be edited.
Orders: Selecting a Model from Model Library
Creating an order with the Model Library offers the most stunning display of its utility. The opportunity to display curated models to customers makes creating an order within Authentise even more accessible. Users can now visually review a catalog of models that have already been reviewed, rather than having to supply their own, new STL models. The possible uses are numerous and we are excited to hear about how our customers choose to deploy this feature!
Restricted User Ordering Workflow
Look how easy that was! But really, we believe this feature can expand how our customers accept orders and limit extra work by storing and displaying commonly requested models. Additive manufacturing is such a flexible technology that sometimes it helps to have a starting place to work from.
Planned Future Improvements:
We are currently working to allow for additional fields to be captured and stored within the Model Library models. This will allow for more time savings on commonly ordered models as fields like material and workflow will already be specified. Keep an eye out for this additional feature!
Please let us know what you think of the Model Library! Our customer success team would love to hear from you.
