Enhancements to support the automeshing of thin parts and domains
New CHM-based offline documentation
New COM API documentation
StressCheck v11.2 Development Activities
Expected features and enhancements for our next StressCheck release (v11.2, expected in Summer 2023) will include:
Mesh seeding to guide the Automesh by automatically using pre-existing node locations.
Upgraded toolbar icons for a clear and improved user experience.
New option to select the toolbar icons between 16×16 (default), 20×20 and 24×24 pixels size.
Movable Min/Max labels for Results plotting and extractions.
A Dependencies button on the Parameter pane which lists all dependencies on the selected parameter.
Column sorting and filtering for Parameters pane table including “Go To” to search for parameters.
Predictive text on input fields has been implemented for parameter and formula names.
Enhanced Index controls for filtering and sorting Geometry and Mesh object lists. including “Go To ID…” to access a specific ID.
Improved visualization of Selected status on dropdown lists containing assignment/set records.
Overhauled the Display Objects pane to support selective number ranges and additional object types.
Re-designed color definitions pane.
A list of object IDs belonging to a set “Contents:” and a list of objects that reference the set “Used By:” are now displayed when selecting a record on the Sets page.
Improved consistency of DeLast/Undo functionality
And much more under development!
We will also host a Q&A session at the end of the webinar to allow attendees to interact with and provide feedback to members of our product development team.
