Who Has Time to Make Detailed Stencil Reports?

When clients require detailed reporting for stencils, it can be hard to find the time and resources to calculate the detailed data, report it nicely, and make the graphical labels which reference the report. Calculations, such as area and aspect ratios for apertures, or total volumes and areas can be tricky, leaving you open to errors.

Gen Stencil 2.10 combines customized spreadsheet reports with an Auto Label feature to create the documentation for you, with accuracy and speed.
