The Prepare module allows you to virtually design the experiment. An overview of some of the key features in the Prepare module is provided in the following figure.
Overview of Prepare Module
The Prepare module contains two modes: 3D Mode and List Mode. 3D Mode is centered around the 3D viewer, with tab widgets on the right for the Item overview, Properties, Comments, Measurement Info, and VP Quality. List mode allows for bulk editing of coordinates and orientations in a table that resembles working in, for instance, Excel.
The Prepare module has two buttons in blue with special functions. See also in the right upper corner of the figure above.
After successfully completing the steps in the Prepare module, one should have made the most critical decisions up-front that may otherwise have popped up in the lab, or even after measurement. The DIRAC file containing this fully-prepared “design of experiment” is very well suited to hand over to other colleagues that may carry out (parts of) the measurement campaign. To open a DIRAC file in Prepare mode, only a dir-prepare license is needed.
Actions in the Prepare module can now be reversed and/or redone. When working on a design of experiment, actions such as positioning the sensors, aligning the Virtual Points or setting the impacts can be undone and redone in a user-friendly manner. Undo and redo actions are available in the renewed title bar as two buttons; the on-hover tooltip reveals the action that can be undone/redone. One may also use the key commands CTRL+Z and CTRL+Y.
The Undo/redo features include the following:
