kranXpert Version

A new kranXpert version is available.

Here are the main changes:

In the ‘Object overview’ (main menu ‘Options’) you can create cranes or lorry’s and edit objects or create export files of your new objects. We remove the fleet overview and replace it with the favorite list that you can manage in the Object overview.

For your hint:
– Objects with book symbol are not editable.



imageTo know, how you can build lorry’s, you can import some samples over the ‘Install/Upgrade’ button, the lorry’s are at the bottom of the list.

imageThe tool Extras are now HTML based, that’s mean you can change the content of these files with your own information’s.

The HTML files are installed in the kranXpert.exe executable folder as a subfolder extras then the language folder de=Germany, en=English, es=Español. You can add new menus to the menu.htm and that shows in all pages as an iframe tag.

kranXpert3D background styles

We made a video for the different background styles of the new in development kranXpert3D version.

Background styles:

  • Color, you can select a color.
  • Color gradient, you can set the begin and to gradient color.
  • Picture, selecting a picture that good for showing watermark logos
  • Panorama, you can select a picture that texture on a cylinder. With some picture cameras you can shot 360° pictures and with stitching software can you create a outright view that you can use with this panorama style.
  • Skybox, the scene is in a cube and every surface of the cube has a texture imagethat really good for outright view.

kranXpert goes 3D

currently we work on a new 3d crane lift planner version of kranXpert with different background styles like: single color, two color gradient, picture, panorama picture, sky box.


imageThe views front, left, top and the rotation view is like in the kranXpert version but we add a new 3d view where you can move the camera.

We want support different 3d file formats insert as clipart and build our own graphical file format with object bindings.

The help system is based on html files and are action based viewed in kranXpert3D, not like the static chm help system in the current version.

The language files are outside the executable that anybody can add/change the languages without compiling.



Please don’t ask for a release day, we can only say ‘It’s done, when it’s done’.
