Alphawindoor Training

The Alphawindoor Training course will guide the student through the window and door manufacturing process. It is imperative that the student understands the topics covered in Alphawindoor Training in order to successfully implement the software in their facility. It is essential for students to remain consistent with the software. From the Work Planes level to the Constraints, and then to Alphawindoor, if they are not consistent, they will not be able to achieve desired results. Every step of the process is tied to the next; if the student cannot create and manipulate Work Planes successfully, then any Constraints they apply will most likely not react the way the student intended. Each instructor will set aside some time on the last day of training to go over any issues the students have to ensure that each student understands the complete process and is able to correctly use the software. The students can also test out the software on things that may be specific to their manufacturing needs and practices. This allows the students the opportunity to use the software in “real world” situations while still being able to take advantage of the instructor’s expertise.
