Chassis Dimensions – Your Way!https://truckscience.com/wp-content/uploads/Chassis-Dimensions-WB-CA-CT-AC-BA-BBC.jpg 780 290 TruckScience TruckScience https://truckscience.com/wp-content/uploads/Chassis-Dimensions-WB-CA-CT-AC-BA-BBC.jpg
Now you can choose how you’d like to define vehicle dimensions in our Axle Weight Calculator.
Specify Chassis Length as ‘Wheelbase (WB)’ or ‘Cab to Axles (CA/CT)’.
And specify Cab Length as ‘Bumper to Back of Cab (BBC)’ or ‘Front Bumper to Front Axle (BA) + Front Axle to Back of Cab (AC)’.
You can change your preference for how to define these dimensions in the Settings > Preferences tab here:
More Equipment Categories
We’ve added many new Equipment categories, including Snowplow, Aerial Platform and Outriggers. Click into any of these categories to upload a dxf file with drawings of your custom equipment.
Now you can add a Lift Gate on a Service Body…
…And you can add a 5th wheel or gooseball/gooseneck hitch on a pickup truck.
Promote Custom Equipment to the Public Library
When you import a dxf file of your own equipment, you can make it available to all users of the app by asking us to promote it to our Public Library. On approval, the item will appear in the Public Library, but the dxf file will never be shared with other users. Having your custom equipment in the Public Library helps to raise awareness of your brand.
Now you can send your report directly to your computer’s printer, from the Preview tab, without having to download it to your desktop first.
We’ve added more vehicles to our library, from ranges including Ford Super Duty, FUSO, Hino 300 Series, Isuzu F-Series and FX-Series, Iveco Daily, Mercedes-Benz Actros, Arocs and Econic, Powerstar, Toyota HiAce, UD Trucks Croner and VW Transporter.
These vehicles were added in response to requests from users in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, United Kingdom and USA.
We’ve also added bodies on demand, equipment including cranes, bull bars, condensers, 5th wheels, and sample load items, including pallets and excavators.
As well as adding complete ranges of vehicles, we add vehicles, trailers, bodies, equipment and load items on request, for users in our core markets of United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Let’s hear from you!
We added the ability to choose how you define chassis and cab dimensions, in response to user feedback. Please keep sharing your suggestions, so we can spend our developers’ valuable time adding features that are useful to you.
