I was recently introduced to CAMduct, so I'm still quite inexperienced to the program.
I have some questions that I wish someone could answer them.
First of all, in my company, we want to implement the barcode system that comes with the software. How does that work? Do I have to implement before a generic barcode system in my company and then use the system on CAMduct to complement it?
I also have doubts about the costing database, can I obtain a quote for an order in the CAMduct? Or it's better to acquire the ESTmap? Basically I want to make a quote print report in CAMduct, where I can see the prices of each item and the total order. Does the program allows me to calculate costs based on €/m2 or Kg/m2 and other items costs per unit?
Also relating to the costing database how it's done the calculation of the fabrication times and costs for the items and the labour rates?
For now these are my main concerns.
I also spoke with Autodesk to get some training, but I didn't get a reply yet.
Cam-Duct has a very good pricing facility and covers just about everything right down to the last nut and bolt
but requires a little bit of training to fully understand how to set it up properly
It can do both per m2 or by kg and its pretty extensive in what it costs
I would recommend contacting a local reseller of Autodesk products to arrange training
you should be able to setup up barcode printing in the printer setup in the file menu, I think its labels you want
but again you might need some help,as setting up reports can seem a bit confusing
Hope that helps a wee bit
If you look at the Menu File>Print Layout>Item Reports. then set up bill of quantities on the top drop down.
this can be manipulated to get the best options and in order.
I'm not an expert and never been on training for this but that is how I have managed to do it.
Hope this helps
