Release Date: 26th October 2021
Release Name: iTwin Analytical Synchronizer CONNECT Edition V12 Update 1
Release Version: 12.01.00.285
Notable changes in this release of iTwin Analytical Synchronizer include enhanced existing symbology display of steel reinforcement as well as expanded new workflows and capabilities with the introduction of Post Tension Tendons, and the available of analytical design results API for visualization of analytical design results in Design Review.
Analytical Design Results
iTwin Analytical Synchronizer API has been expanded to allow applications to communicate analytical design summary results downstream in Design Review. Currently, RAM Structural System, RAM Concept, STAAD and SACS utilize this new capability.

Post Tension Tendons
iTwin Analytical Synchronizer now supports interoperability of Post Tension Tendons. RAM Concept is the first application utilizing this capability to produce both File Repositories and iModels containing tendons.
Post Tension tendons can now be visualized in both iTwin Analytical Synchronizer and in the web browser using PW365 3D Design Review.

Steel Reinforcement Layout Symbology
Concentrated Surface Rebars can now be shown with a symbology layer. Its visibility can be enabled via Levels in iTwin Analytical Synchronizer. The symbology layer offers a clearer view into the extents, number of bars, bar sizes and bar spacing from the main window.

Support for ISM API 9.0
This version of iTwin Analytical Synchronizer works with version 9.0 of the ISM API. This version is backward compatible to version 6.0.
iTwin Services Add-In V2
iTwin Services is exposed to applications via an in-product sidebar see here. iTwin Analytical Synchronizer itself has similarly incorporated iTwin Services Add-in sidebar.
iTwin Services contains 2 modes, a Cloud Synchronization mode (available to EAP partcipants) and File Synchronization mode (available to All users).
Cloud Synchronization within iTwin Analytical Synchronizer itself allows the synchronization of the current File Repository (ism) to an iModel in the cloud. This capability is beneficial to applications and users that can produce File Repositories but have yet to incorporate iTwin Services Add-in V2 but still wish to participate in cloud workflows.
File Synchronization mode within iTwin Anlaytical Synchronizer itself allows the merging of content from one File Repository into another.
Support for Simplified Chinese
User interface language can be switched (between English and Simplified Chinese) within an in-product toggle. iTwin Analytical Synchronizer must restart for changes to take effect.
Subscription Entitlement Service
This product version utilizes Subscription Entitlement Service (SES), which is not supported by a SELECT activation key. SES is a free service with new features to enhance your organization’s user administration and security with mandatory user sign-in via CONNECTION Client to access the application.
