MasterSpec licensees who already have Altarix installed on their computers and are licensed for the M/E library do not require additional steps to access the M/E sections. Altarix will automatically “call home” and download the latest available MasterSpec sections.
Altarix is an innovative specification productivity software that helps engineers produce specifications with a sleek on-screen editor or smart Q&A editor. Altarix goes beyond the basic capabilities of traditional specification editors and allows specifiers to reuse specification sections from existing projects to create new, custom sections. It has been available to architects since early 2013 and now allows engineers to take advantage of the same software.
Engineers can also use Altarix to create and maintain an office master and automatically incorporate the extensive, regularly updated content of the MasterSpec specification system.
Altarix simplifies the production of complete project manuals by:
- generating on-demand tables of contents and submittal logs
- tracking important design and code criteria in an easy-to-use, centrally located project summary
- globally formatting all sections of each project
- allowing engineers to export their Altarix documents directly to Microsoft Word
