FieldLink V6.3 Release Notes

This update will change the file type you send to the field and how jobs / projects are accessed & organized.

Some of the new features that are in FieldLink V6.3 include:

  • Create a new FieldLink Project 
    • The new file is called a TFLX format. It contains TFL, model and scan data in sub folders below it
  • Load/create multiple TFL files for layout as well as scan/model data
  • Show how to transfer the data to Connect
