Macros and Add-ins

Macros are commands within a program that represent a series of operations. Essentially shortcuts, macros reduce time spent on repetitive tasks, increasing productivity. Utilizing macros to program families of parts is especially useful. Logistically, the strategy behind programming similar featured parts is identical, despite varying dimensions. We can develop a single macro to accommodate an entire family by drafting formulas and functions that allow for variable inputs. With the user-friendly interface, anyone with typing ability would have the power to program. Developing a macro for families of parts would substantially cut programming times and costs.

Add-ins, also shortcuts, complement and extend the basic functionality of your software. Using Esprit's open API and Visual Basic we can fully integrate add-ins into your software by adding customized toolbar buttons that perform specific functions.
