NEW Release | March 13, 2024

New Features/Enhancements

Zea Parts

  • Zea Parts now allows users to provide SBOMs for their products, enabling more control over the structure and content of the SBOM. Non-3D items such as consumables (oils, tape) can be shown in the BOM alongside the parts associated with CAD.
  • Users can target a folder, and all BOMs within that folder will be matched to processed CAD models.

Improved Zea Sync spreadsheet import capabilities - March 2024 - Zea new release

  • Improved previewing a part from the shopping cart or quote emails to open the full assembly in a new tab. If a part was added individually, only that part will be displayed.
  • Updated the Zea Parts user interface for both admin and public views. Enhancements include the ability to show/collapse the BOM, a new visibility toolbar, and a button to open selected parts in a new tab.
    • Parts lacking CAD data have a different colored background BOM.

Support for hierarchal service bill of materials in Zea Parts - March 2024 - Zea new release

  • Non-sellable parts without sellable children are now visible in the BOM. This allows non-sellable parts such as the body of a vehicle to be selected and hidden to easily expose the parts beneath it.
    • Note: Dummy part number can be added to the ‘Part Number’ column and the real part number in the ‘Engineering Part Number’ column to censor sensitive part numbers.
  • Introduced a feature to generate views for parts, either in bulk from the settings or manually by positioning parts and saving views. These views can create pre-defined positioning for published parts. The thumbnails are used to populate parts pages in e-commerce platforms like Shopify.

Generate views for parts in bulk from the settings - March 2024 - Zea new release

3D Models:

  • Edited 3D models can now be explicitly saved for use in Zea Parts and Zea Illustrations. This includes hiding/transforming geometries, saving material edits, and a Manage Edits dialog for viewing and resetting edits.

Desktop:

  • Made the filtering feature more robust. Previously, files that were filtered after processing CAD were hidden. Now, filtered files will be marked for deletion in Zea Sync and processing again will permanently remove them from the database.
  • Added information in 3D Models advanced settings about clearing unnecessary temporary files generated during processing CAD data.

Bug Fixes:

Platform:

  • Fixed an issue where Editors upgraded to Admins appeared twice on the Workspace Users settings page.
  • Addressed a problem where quickly double-clicking the next button during onboarding led to a blank page.

Zea Parts:

  • Corrected an issue where empty header rows were omitted when importing a parts list.
