ShopVOX Tip: Did You Upload the Wrong Design Proof?

January 28th, 2019

In the 1990's, Lockheed Martin helped NASA develop, build, and operate the Mars Climate Orbiter. Climate Orbiter along with Polar Lander were designed to help scientists understand Mars' water history and the potential for life in the planet's past. However, in 1999, the Lockheed Martin engineering team used English units of measurement instead of the metric system that NASA's team used for a vital spacecraft operation. This metrics mishap prevented the spacecraft's navigation coordinates from being transferred from a spacecraft team in Denver to a flight team in California. This caused the Climate Orbiter to become lost in space. This mishap cost NASA $125 million! Fortunately, when you upload the wrong design proof and send it to your customer, your project does not become lost in space. In fact, your proof and project do not even become lost in the cloud. Though you may become frustrated and annoyed at this mistake, you can easily correct this mishap without costing you millions of dollars. The quickest way to correct the wrong design proof is to do the following:

  • Go to the appropriate job.

  • Click the proof tab. 

  • Scroll to the image of your proof and scroll the mouse over it. 

  • A confirm box will appear. Click, yes confirm.

This path is great if your customer did not yet disapprove the design. If your custom already disapproved the design, then watch this video:  How to remove or delete a proof from TechVOX Inc on Vimeo
