New Year’s Resolutions for 2022

New Year’s Resolutions for 2022

Another year has passed, making room for 2022. As usual, 这意味着BTE365真正的网站是时候回顾过去的一年,拿出一些BTE365真正的网站想在下一年完成的事情.

What Did We Achieve in 2021?

We had quite a few plans for 2021. So, BTE365真正的网站先来看看BTE365真正的网站是如何实现2021年的目标的,然后再来看看2022年.

The Platform

First, the most anticipated update – automation of CNC turning and milling. BTE365真正的网站在2021年底添加了这个功能. 您可以上传您的stp,以获得加工零件的价格在秒.

The user interface got a complete makeover. Allan, Fractory’s designer, made the platform easier to navigate, 因此,您可以找到所有必要的按钮和下拉菜单,没有太多的努力.

只要指定分数,BTE365真正的网站就会用引号回答

Ordering “other materials” is enabled right on the platform. For example, 如果BTE365真正的网站没有列出你要找的碳钢, 只需点击“其他碳钢”,并在表格中输入您的具体等级. We will most likely still be able to deliver.

We also implemented manufacturability feedback. 你可以得到更多的信息,为什么BTE365真正的网站不能定价的部分,并作出必要的设计更改相应的. 例如,如果弯曲半径对于零件厚度来说太小,你会知道的.

You can now view each part in 3D right on the platform by clicking on its image. 当需要注意的特性被突出显示时,如果有任何可制造性警告,这将特别方便.

The platform is now also able to detect countersinking. 沉孔被广泛使用,不承认沉孔意味着需要手工报价. Not any more.

company accounts
Create a company account in-app

Company accounts have been live for a few months. 这些允许您将同一公司的用户合并到一个帐户下,以实现:

  • Use of common payment terms
  • Tracking of team projects’ progress
  • Creation of new shipping addresses
  • Inviting team members and managing their roles

Mass edits got a remake, 因此,您可以选择不同的参数批量零件,如厚度, manufacturing method, material, etc. to make changes at once to a common set of parts.

Bulk uploads for manufacturing drawings are now possible. 有些制造方法还需要附图,你可以一次全部上传. 如果文件命名相同,则零件与图纸自动连接, e.g. part1.stp and part1.pdf.

New Offices

In 2021, we opened our first office in Finland.

And another one in Estonia, this time in Tallinn.

大部分工作都是为开业做准备 more markets and offices in 2022. More about that later.

Number of Parts

For the first time, we hit the benchmark of 1M parts made in a year. 当然,前面提到的常客贡献很大.

But a large portion of our production volume came from series manufacturing. 您利用BTE365真正的网站的生产伙伴网络,以确保您的循环订单将永远是 delivered on time at set prices amidst the uncertainty in the market.

You come from all kinds of industries. 因此,BTE365真正的网站为各种各样的项目生产零件 船到游轮,母鸡笼到摩天大楼,自主机器人到无人机.
