What's New in SolidMesh v4.60
Enhancements / Additions:
Discrete geometry functionality.
This functionality will allow the generation of a new surface grid using the original triangulation as
the underlying geometry. The topology is automatically extracted based on
features identified in the discrete triangulation and on
existing topological boundaries specified in the triangulation. Once the topology is extracted,
geometric surfaces are constructed and can be used like traditional NURBS-based
geometric surfaces. The command line option for this action is -discretegeometry or -dg.
Two parameters are used during the feature identification: dihedral angle and open angle.
- The dihedral angle is the angle between adjacent boundary faces. Edges with dihedral angles
greater than the specified threshold will be considered candidate features.
The dihedral angle threshold can be specified via the command line using
either the -dihedralangle or -da options.
The open angle threshold is used to identify corners. Those having an open angle greater than the
specified threshold will be considered candidate features. The open angle threshold can be
specified via the command line using either the -openangle
or -oa options.
Added function to display the normal vectors for boundary faces
of a surface mesh under the Debug panel.
Added command line option -stoltol
used to specify the tolerance used for the coincident node when processing STL files.
Automatically decrease the surface resolution for models containing more than 5,000 surfaces.
Vectors automatically re-scale when the view is
reset in order to keep their size on the same order has what is being displayed.
Corrected bug that caused SolidMesh to crash if the
Fileio Read File or
Write File dialog boxes were closed using the window
Corrected bug in the STL file reader.
Corrected bug that created zero length vectors
when working with discrete data, i.e. grid files.
