New or Major Capabilities Added
New NASTRAN OP2 (beta) Reader. The NASTRAN OP2 reader reads some OP2 files that the existing reader was not able to read. Both the existing and this new alternative NASTRAN readers remain available. We would appreciate feedback when customers have tried them both on the same dataset.
New GMV Reader. GMV is the format used by ConvergeCFD and Barracuda and sometimes KIVA. This is just an Alpha reader we are releasing to get customer participation in the pre-release testing phase.
Checkpoints. Checkpoints are automatically created session files useful for if/when EnSight crashes and you want to return to your work. No need to waste time making session files manually or recreating your work in EnSight manually. To install checkpoints go to: User Tools > Utilities. You set how often checkpoints are saved and how many you want to be saved before the old ones are deleted. Notice also that there is a manual checkpoints utility you can also put in your Main toolbar for manual checkpoints. Access Checkpoints in the Welcome Window, Window > Welcome To.
Stereo viewing control panel in User Tools. Controls the eye separation values for stereo viewing.
The command language manual is back, but is not accessible via the GUI. We do include the file now.
Improved multi-value input in the transformation editor (e.g. single entry of vectors, etc) and other locations.
International Fonts. We now support ‘font linking’. This allows for improved display of font glyphs that are not available in the current font. The classic example is a variable name with Japanese text in it displaying as ‘squares’ using the default annotation font, ‘Arial’. In 10.0.1(b) on a Japanese Windows system the text should display properly.
There were some changes that improve startup performance in specific environmental situations (e.g. large numbers of fonts and some network drive cases).
‘dconfig’ displays now supported. This applies to multiple displays connected from a single graphics card. (No Distributed Rendering (DR) support yet in v10.0).
EnVe includes some additional tools for stereo .evo manipulation: extraction of channels, swapping of channels, creation of ‘side-by-side’ style stereo framing used by the nVidia stereo movie viewer and Youtube.
