Export Graphics Tool
The "Export Graphics Tool" exports all graphics from your WinCC (TIA Portal) configuration into a directory of your choice. The original file type and object properties (transparency, for example) are retained in this case. This permits you to process graphics with the usual graphics programs and then integrate them back into the project.

SINAMICS XML Parser
For SINAMICS drives there are XML files available with the possible warning and error codes of each drive. These XML files that are supplied with the drive’s firmware also include these messages in plain text.
To allow easy and effective use of this information from the XML files, for example, for visualization, this XML data must be converted to a suitable file format.
