In DISCUS 5.0, we have a brand new text extract function so you can capture the Part number and Part Name from a PDF file and upload the data right into Form 1 without typing. Want to make sure you enter the Drawing number and name right from the print? Use the extract tool to capture the info right from the drawing into DISCUS.

Coming Soon! DISCUS 5.0 will have the OCR Editor so you can make adjustments in a matter of click on one page. When you open the Characteristics Properties box, you can adjust the scale, the dpi and contrast on that page and establish the settings so that all the images from the drawing will have a good result. As soon as you make an adjustment, the OCR immediately starts to recognize the data.
Our team has been hard at work this year developing some exciting new features for our DISCUS OCR software.
What’s DISCUS OCR?
It’s our optical character recognition technology that allows you to extract text from your image drawings to aid in the characteristic identification process. The benefits of using a software tool such as DISCUS OCR is the ability to dramatically decrease your data entry time and decrease your likelihood for errors versus manual methods.
The updates to DISCUS OCR will enhance your ability to control the accuracy settings based on the type of document you are extracting. The new set of controls will allow you to adjust the contrast, quality, size, and other important settings that help you extract detailed requirements from your documentation.
Stay tuned for more details!
