TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.

Check out TMS, Inc. They might be able to help. Their URL allegedly is http://www.tmsinc.com/ , but I couldn't connect in the past
5 minutes. They provide a number of imaging solutions that could
relieve the problem, for a price. I know that they've done
some very interesting things with, for example, Briggs and Stratton
parts catalogs. Repair person can click on a exploded diagram,
choose a part, and the program hauls out a completed order form,
with the part number, description, and all additional
parts that will be needed to do the repair.
Cool stuff. I don't have a connection with TMS (except for
the article about a different product that my wife had
published a few months ago).
