View a Book
1. Open a book through the Master Library Table of Contents (TOC) page.
A book includes parts and documents information of a machine or a component of a machine. After you sign in, you will be able to see the "Master Library Table of Contents (TOC)" page that contains images for each of the books available to you. Clicking on an image will open the corresponding book.
2. Go to a specific part of a book through the Graphical Index Page
After you open a book, you will be able to see the "Graphical Index Page" if the book has one. The page is usually an image of the machine. Clicking on different sections of the image will navigate to the page corresponding to the section clicked. In the following screenshot, if you click on the wheels or number 2, the Wheel Assembly page will open.
3. A quick look at the page structure
A page has three main sections: Table of Contents, Image, and List
Table of Contents section contains all the pages in the opened book, in a tree structure. You can easily navigate to different pages by clicking the page node on the tree structure. For example, if you click the Cab node on the above example you can go to the Cab page.
Image Section contains all the images for the page. You can zoom in and see details of a part on the image. An image may have hotspots in it corresponding to the callouts. Selecting a hotspot will highlight the corresponding item in the list in the right hand side. Also, selecting a list item in the right hand side will highlight the corresponding hotspot/callout in the image.
List Section contains all the part items for the page. If there is a photo for the part, a green camera icon will be displayed on the line to identify it. Also if there is a video or a 3D file for the part, a green video icon or a 3D icon will be shown there to identify it. By clicking on the green icons you will be able to view the photo, video, and the 3D file related to the part.
4. Find a part in the list
After you open a page, for example, the Wheel Assembly page, you can see the list items on the right part of the page. Here you can find the part you want in the list, for example, "40037702 CAP.. Plug". Use the “Select box” on the left end of the line to select the item into the shopping cart. To see the shopping cart, click on the “Cart” link on the right upper hand side of the screen.
Clicking a part in the list will highlight the part item with light blue color. The corresponding hotspot in the image will be highlighted too. In the above example, if you click on the item 4 in the list, the line 4 will be highlighted. Meanwhile, the hotspot 4 in the image will be highlighted with red color. You can zoom in the image of the part and double check to make sure the part number 4 is the part you are looking for.
Zooming – There are three ways that you can zoom in the image. Firstly, you can user mouse scroll wheel to zoom in/out the image. Secondly, you can zoom in the image by single left click on the image. Thirdly, you can select a specific area using your mouse to zoom in the area.
After you select the parts into the shopping cart, you can checkout, export the cart to XML, HTML, Excel (*.csv) files, email the shopping cart, or create/print/email a purchase order.
Search for a Part
