Prefabricated insect screens
Some fabricators want to be able to quote insect screens, but they do not need to see a detailed bill of material, because they buy the insect screens already made from a supplier. With this feature they can compute the quote accurately, based on the price per square meter of the insect screen and without generating production details for it.

Prefabricated shutters
Some fabricators want to be able to calculate shutters, but they do not need to see a detailed bill of material, because they buy the shutters already made from a supplier. With this feature they can compute the quote accurately, based on the price per square meter of the shutters and without generating production details for it.

Shutters (standard, roller)
Ra Workshop allows you to design shutters and roller shutters. The shutters / roller shutters can be designed independently or can be attached to a window/door. In the case of roller shutters multiple specific options are available: multiple axis, different engines, etc. The bill of material will include all the items required by the shutters.
