version 1.5 - released

Range Software Package - version 1.5 release

New version of Range Software package has been released.
So what is new in this release?

NEW FEATURES AND IMPROVEMENTS:

  1. Problem solver:
    • After successful and/or unsuccessful execution a message box is displayed.
      - if successful option to load new results is provided
    • Stress - Improved convergence and accuracy of the solver.
  2. Geometry editing:
    • Nodes:
      • Level node - level the node to the surface
      • Delete node - delete the node and the adjacent elements from the model
      • Delete node and close hole - same as 'Delete node' but created hole will be closed with triangles
    • Points:
      • Auto mark points
      • Mark point
    • Lines:
      • Create lines from surface edges
      • Auto mark lines
      • Mark line
    • Faces:
      • Auto mark faces - Improved algorithm (faster and more memory efficient)
      • Mark faces - Improved algorithm (faster and more memory efficient)
      • Close hole - Close the hole in the surface mesh
      • Synchronize All Normals - Make all neighboring triangles face in the same
        direction. This is done automatically after each model import.
    • Bodies:
      • Auto mark bodies
      • Mark body
  3. View:
    • Message boxes in 3D area contain icons
    • Help messages are displayed on the screen
    • Display boundary conditions - Instead of letter marks icons are used
    • Display initial conditions - Instead of letter marks icons are used
  4. Mesh generation:
    • Error is displayed if model contain holes
    • After successful and/or unsuccessful execution a message box is displayed.
      - if successful option to load new mesh is provided
    • Log file is produced.

BUG FIXES:

  1. Geometry editing:
    • Merge models - crash occurs if no model is loaded.
  2. Mesh generation:
    • On error during mesh generation execution window is not closed but stays visible so the error can be investigated.
  3. GUI:
    • Unable to pick nodes if element edges are displayed.

OTHER:

  • New examples models were added and old ones were repaired.
  • Improved tutorials and manuals.
