Release notes (in English only)

Revision 7.0.93

  • fixed: symbols for English dimensions concerning Force related items [lbf, pound force] were named wrong [lb, pound].
  • fixed: Optimisation-objective could not be defined in special cases: after deletion of Element Nr 1, and next creation of an angle fixation.

Revision 7.0.92

  • fixed: Reference curve for Optimization displayed a constant value of 0.0, when applied to angular properties of a Beam.
  • fixed: After using the Optimization dialog, and exiting by Cancel, the Graph was not displayed anymore.
  • fixed: Reference curve for Optimization can be removed (=hidden) by the regular toolbar item for removing curves from the Graph.
  • fixed: Undo-action did not respond at the first click, when previously an Element was deleted.

Revision 7.0.91

  • fixed: license activation for business networks is automated now.
  • changed: from now we call the "Build" number "Revision". This number is moved from the 4th digit to the 3rd digit in the file properties. The 4th digit is the so called private build number.

 Build 7.0.90

  • fixed: when using an alternative x-axis property (not Time), the label values for the x-axis were wrong. This only happened during animation, not while moving the cursor over the graph.

Build 7.0.89

  • fixed: after changing the property of the Graph X-axis into a nodal property ( position, displacement, velocity etc.), the graph of angular curves ( i.e. angle of a beam) was incorrect. In some cases the curves turned into a constant value of the initial angle of the beam.

Build 7.0.88

  •  new: at startup of a Floating-license SAM session, while creating a connection to the server a popup message is displayed.
  • fixed: the Statistics form showed a wrong file version number after creating a new mechanism.
  • fixed: Classroom kit installation with a license server resulted in connection problems ("Duplicate user not allowed"), when using cloned PC's.

Build 7.0.87

  • fixed: the Demo version of SAM could not open files from previous versions.
  • fixed: the properties of the rotation spring showed faulty units for the stiffness value.
  • fixed: a user expression shorter than 3 characters resulted in an unexpected error.

Build 7.0.86

  • fixed: the properties of the rotation damper showed faulty units for the damping value.
  • fixed: exported angle of rotation elements showed faulty units.
  • fixed: the hodograph of a pure vertical movement was not displayed.
  • fixed: graphic lines that exactly coincide with mechanism elements were not displayed in the initial position when the display option "hiding mechanism" was active.

Build 7.0.85

  • fixed: Start-angle of a beam was changed after addition of a Rotation Sensor, or any Rotation Element.
  • fixed: Userdefined Expressions: data of Rotation Sensor were zero.
  • fixed: Rotation.Sensor display of angle graph  showed unexpected start values.
  • fixed: Results > Export of Motion format file resulted in unexpected error message.

Build 7.0.84

  • fixed: Userdefined expressions did not handle information of the Rotational Sensor properly.
  • fixed: Rotation angle of all rotational element types had a wrong sign under some conditions.
  • fixed: The start-angle of all rotational element types is wrapped now between -180 ... +180 degrees

Build 7.0.83

  • fixed: Input Motion dialog: clicking the most-rigth column resulted in a table scroll to the left that could not be undone.
  • fixed: Input Motion dialog: while in the "Cubic spline" Tab, the same problem occurred.
  • fixed: Gears: when 2 gear-pairs overlap (use the same nodes for their axes), it was unable to fixate relative angles of one of the gears.

 Build 7.0.82

  • fixed: Tab-pages of many dialogs showed a grey background, which is not conform Windows 7 default settings.
  • fixed: Starting SAM with invallid license data disabled the use of SAM in demo-mode.

Build 7.0.81

  • new: Reference to SAMxx.INI setupfile may be added to a commandline launch,.

Build 7.0.80

  • fixed: Deleting Elements could result in unreferenced "ghost" nodes.
  • new: Hotkey added for Project Documentation: Ctrl + f
  • new: License activation. Paste the complete activation key at once.
  • fixed: Project Documentation: Hinge info was incomplete.

Build 7.0.78

  • fixed: Range-check error while creating project documentation.

Build 7.0.76

  • fixed: Format error in reference file for Optimization resulted in repeated error message. Process is stopped now and show a clear message.
  • fixed: Using exact values as argument in an Optimization resulted in a range-check error
  • fixed: The "Save" command acted as a "Save as" command
  • fixed: Hidden feature added to hide the filename and path in the SAM titlebar. See SAM INI >  [Global] > ShowPathInTitle

Build 7.0.71

  • First release of Sam 7.0
