Configuration Sharing
MountBuilder users can now share their configurations with other people by accessing the new 'Share Configuration' button on the final menu. This new feature saves a custom part configuration as a web link that users can easily e -mail to friends and colleagues, or post to their website. When users click on the link, the fully assembled configuration appears in their browser, along with the pre -built parts list.

Download Specification Packet
MountBuilder can now assemble a "Spec Packet" containing all related, downloadable files for the parts in your configuration. Users can preview and select which files they would like to have included - such as product manuals, technical drawings, brochures, catalog pages, CAD drawings and more - and MountBuilder will automatically gather the files together and compress them into one, convenient .ZIP file archive for download. Now users have easy, one -click access to all available documentation and collateral for the parts in their configurations.

Clicking on a part name in the MountBuilder part menus will now open the product detail page on the Chief website to provide more detailed information about a specific part.
