- Several improvements and bugfixes.

- Meusburger and HASCO Catalogs were updated.

- All fixed issues from EMX 7.0 M040 are also here implemented




First release of EMX 8.0


 - The user interface of EMX 8.0 is built using Creo consistent dialogs. This improves the usability and the stability of the software and allows the user to trail every action in EMX.

- New MISUMI Catalog Data in component library. The most "hot" MISUMI components are available in EMX libraries.

- Define your hot runner as a library component and use it directly, without having to create it from scratch.

- Modify assembly constraints of existing components. No need of defining the component again, the assembly constraints can be just modified.

- New Bill Of Material management tool. BOM Data can be much more easily maintained with the new BOM Dialog. No need to switch between Model Tree and BOM List page anymore. Summarized parts can be visualised and edited directly in the BOM List.
