Consequently, the detailed construction of the terminal rail can be presented in the form of installation or ordering lists. Any construction questions can be asked, and errors detected, by using the “Installation Tips/Help’Advice” function. A navigation window conveniently displays an overview of all used terminal rails, and an export/import interface provides direct access to CADdy++ET, which makes it possible to exchange data with other systems.
