The home of smart buildings, smart equipment and IoT
With FIN 4.0, we have now introduced a brand new Graphic Builder app that is included within FIN Stack. The Graphics Builder app is entirely HTML5 and utilizes context-sensitive wizards to help the user build their graphic quicker than ever before. This week we'll be showing you how to use the Graphics Builder to create a typical equipment graphic in FIN 4.0.
Since everything in FIN Stack is context sensitive, the first thing you'll need to do is navigate down to one of the equipment you'll be creating a graphic for. Once the graphic builder is launched, a wizard will appear with pre-filled out data based on the context equipment. From there you can select template for the background, and then chose the points & components to bring in.
After you've completed the wizard a new graphic will be created allowing for you to open and edit the content. Ductwork, Smart Labels and graphical components will automatically appear based on your selections from the wizard. All you have to do is snap the components into the ductwork and then in a single click you can match up all of the labels with their corresponding components. Graphic Builder also offers an amazingly simple "Create Overview Box" magic button which allows you to select from any of the available points and then automatically group them into a nice looking Overview box.
FIN Stack automatically does almost all of the work for you. Below are just a few benefits of creating an equipment graphic using the Graphics Builder:
