As with Version 1.7.1, CAD CREATOR 1.8 provides an interface to SIZER for offline mode.

System requirements for the operation of CAD CREATOR 1.8:

  • Hardware
    • 1 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM
    • 3 GB of free hard disk space (for a full installation)
    • DVD drive
    • Modem with Internet access
  • Software
    • Internet Explorer 8.0
    • Adobe Reader 7.0
  • Operating systems
    • Windows XP Home and Professional
    • Windows Vista Business 32-bit
    • Windows 7 Home Basic, Professional and Enterprise 32-bit

CAD CREATOR 1.8 is available in three alternatives:

As of SIZER 3.5, a CAD CREATOR package is no longer included on the DVD, so that a separate installation of the CAD CREATOR is required for optimum offline operation. Version 1.8 is required, and can be installed before or after SIZER. Irrespective of future SIZER versions, the latest version of the CAD CREATOR can be installed and thus provide access to the latest CAD models and dimension drawings.

CAD CREATOR 1.8 provides a user-friendly configuration user interface (multilingual: German, English, French, Italian, Spanish) for quick access to

  • Technical data
  • Dimension drawings
  • 2D/3D CAD data

and supports you when creating system documentation with regard to project-specific information and parts lists.
