EXTENDE News - March 2023
TraiNDE RT v1.2 is coming soon


  You will soon be able to use this innovative RT Training Simulator in two ways! By using a virtual reality headset for a totally immersive training, and in the new way introduced in version 1.2: just by using a standard PC! This may simplify getting familiar with the software for some users.

New features have been added, such as the possibility to put several IQIs on the specimen during the shot.
Optimizations have also been made to improve the user experience. More information on this release will be available in the coming weeks.
