Benefits and Description

The new Visualization Tab in the HTML detail page of the process plan will allow displaying the 3D mockup of allocated parts.  The user is able to review the buildup sequence of the related assemblies in 3D according to the flow of operations defined in the process plan.  The user can then validate the sequence of the assembly process by manually or automatically navigating the first level operations one by one.  Parts allocated to the current selected step in the tree will be displayed in solid colors while the ones from previous steps are displayed in transparent mode.
