What is new in ProSteel V8i SELECTseries 4
Detail Center Enhancements
2D Sections created in 2D group drawings that are automatically written to the model parts (with a subsequent drawing update)
Enhanced arrangement options for automated 2D sections
1. Create the 3D model.
2. Create a 2D drawing including the desired detail.
So far there are no sections created.
3. Open the 2D Drawing
4. Open the Detail Center
Important: The 3D model has to be open as well. There will be some
information written back to the model during this process!!
5. In the detail style select that and how the sections should be created.
Remark: The settings for the sections are used from the "Create Cut" command.
6. By using the right mouse button select "Add 2D section"
7. Select the object where you would like to add a section.
8. Select the area where the section should be created (by selecting 2 points)
9. The sections will be created.
10. The section information will be written back to the 3D model.
Individual single part dimensions available in layout drawings
Short names from shape database available in layout drawings
Display mode "as objects" in layout drawings
Cut-Out option at workframe borders in layout drawings
New annotation label objects
New Command: Solid Referece
The new ProSteel Solid Reference command is very similar to the ProSteel Create Partlist Part command.
There are a few differences.
It works only with solid / ACIS objects
It will insert a "sphere" that contains the ProSteel information
This "container" is linked to the ACIS object
The Solid Reference command is reading the volume information of the ACIS object during creation
This object can be detailed
The solid Reference command is working with objects created with Inventor Fusion 2012 objects as well.
By supporting Inventor Fusion 2012 objects it is possible to import i.e. from Autodesk Inventor, Catia V5, Rhino, Solidworks, Pro/Engineer, SAT ...
Roof-Wall Panel dialog aborded when a comma was used instead of a decimal point
Countersunk bolt heads haven't been displayed correctly in shaded mode when using DINBolts.mdb (SCH7991)
Wrong values for countersunk bolts in DINBolts.mdb tables have been corrected
Incorrect alignment of inner and outer contours of unfolded hollow square and rectangular shapes have been fixed.
The unfolding of the inner and outer contour overlap. The outer contour should be outside of the inner contour, as projected to the beam-axis which is giving the correct outer and inner relation of the unfolding contour.
The inner and outer contour haven't been aligned correctly.
If the latest version of Adobe Reader version X is installed, the help document have been started up to 9 times from the ProStructures dialogs. This issue has been fixed.
Group EEDs has been fixed
There was a problem in positioning groups with settings for groups on max.+1. When a numbering was performed and you did another routine (two different sets of groups in one drawing to number) without setting the starting index back to '0', then the numbering should continue at the last found number. That went wrong. It started over again at '1'.
BOM command seamed to crash AutoCAD , when processing large quantity of parts. Behavior has been fixed.
Partlist is now working when system language is Hebrew
In drawing partlist value for paint area etc. haven't been filled with zero, whenever the value has been less than 1
Presort positioning for flat steels is now working correct
Weld symbols have been at the wrong location in the standard installation.
Now all weld symbols are available
Not all weld symbol bitmaps have not been displayed
The Roof-Wall dispatch dialog terminated unexpectedly.
If you have created the Roof-Wall structural object, and you have selected the polycut tab, inserted a polycut first of all the property page got closed, but not the Roof-Wall dispatch tab, and the command terminated if the "X" in the upper right have been used to close the dialog.
ProSteel dispatch command displayed several warning messages when a wrong MDB database file have been selected.
Partfamily dialog became unstable when entering a value larger than 66 for “Number of Part Families“
If the dialog of the appearing drawings information have been canceled during the part-list creation, the whole process broke and the partlist data has not been delivered
Installer did not detect if AutoCAD was running during the installation process
In the command PS_CREATE_ACIS answering the question "Do you want to delete the Original Parts from the converted ACIS Parts, if not, they will just be hidden? No<Yes>" by pressing the enter button didnn't lead to erased KS_SHAPES; instead they got erased by typing "Y" and enter. The default setting has been changed
Clipping plane dialog box didn't show the correct tooltip
Cloning of end plate connections using the connection editor did not react correctly.
Cloning of an end plate connection by using the connection editor caused that not all links have been updated. I.e. the link arrows "switched" into the opposite direction. For all these end plate connections the data has been correct, but but the size of the end plate has been wrong.
NC Data reported the wrong web cut angle value when using the option "Straight End as Shape Start"
In 2D, facet modification moved in certain cases at the wrong edge.
I.e. a facet of a subpart "rotated" clockwise if the scale 1/5 has been selected
ProStructures preview stopped working with models contained invalid holes
ProStructures crashed with fatal error message in group containment dialogbox
Go to ProStructures >>Additions>>Group containment list>>Select Drawing
In Group Containment window select Layout Tab>>Click on magnifier glass which is in bottom left side>>In format Dialog Click “Moves the selected entry one down” tab
Result: ProStructures crashed with fatal error message.
In a few cases the Mexican and AISC Metric database weight calculation didn't match with the IMCA specifications:
- Wrong value for imperial threaded rods in metric models
- Wrong weight calculation of threaded rods in metric drawings
- Wrong weight calculation for imperial bolts in metric drawings
- Wrong AISC shapes weights in metric database
- Changed AISC Metric database
- Changed weight calculation for threaded rods
- Changed weight conversion for imperial bolts in metric drawings
- Changed offset value in threaded rods for imperial bolts in metric drawings
When a U-shape with a hole in one of the flanges got mirrored and the size of the U-shape got modified, the holes got "invisible", but the properties still contained them.
Web Holes vanish when mirroring shapes
