Slot3D uses Microsoft SQL Server as a database backend. One SQL Server instance may house multiple Slot3D databases. The Data Sources command is used to select between the databases available on a database server.
The Facility tab is used to interact with the 3D model of a facility. A 2D CAD drawing is helpful, but is not necessary when designing a 3D model within Slot3D. Here are the steps to import a 2D CAD drawing to use as a guide, while constructing/creating your Facility Model.
A facility is Slot3D’s representation of a warehouse, or a portion of a warehouse. The first step in any slotting project is to create a facility. Each Slot3D database may house multiple facilities.
The Facility Builder will be displayed when a new facility is created. While a user may configure the carious facility builder parameters at this time, it is typical to set only the facility name initially, and then handle other facility options later in the facility configuration process.
The Insert Bin Layout tool can be used to create bins (add them to the facility design) and stamp bins (add them to the facility model) at the same time.
Invoke the Insert Bin Layout Tool and press the Define New Bins button.
