Rock Maker 2.4 brings performance improvements to Search & Filter, a new chart that helps you analyze the effectiveness of different screens, icons in the Explorer that help you identify the status of the plate, and more.

Data Search & Filter: Performance Improvements. Search your database quickly and effectively with the improved Search & Filter. Rock Maker returns results faster than ever and is now able to search larger databases that were previously impossible.
