Part drawings can now be dragged into Primecut workorders and quotes. Files can be dragged from explorer or from Outlook. Supported files include any currently readable drawing format or BOM, including DXF, DWG, STEP, NC1.


Primecut can now track part shipments to customers, and to and from service suppliers; for example if parts are shipped to an external supplier to receive extra processing. Tracking numbers and packing information is tracked, and packing slips can be generated. Partial fulfillment of workorders, as well as shipping of multiple workorders within a single shipment is supported.
