    V456/506

    14

    ENHANCEMENT

    /SETA,COL and /SETA,LEV can be used to set default colour and level for new entities that use the default color and layer (APTIN groups, model.fct "colormap" etc.). The default default color is now grey instead of black.

    V456/506

    14

    ENHANCEMENT

    CMTRANS will work with SOLIDWORKS solids in assembly space (still work to do for part space). Choose either "All" to move the solid and CheckMate entities together "All non-cm" to move just the solid.

    V456/506

    14

    FIXED

    In 506 the colormap stuff is now complete. You should find 506 part files to be much smaller and much faster than 456 part files.

    V456/506

    14

     

    NOTE : If you have a part file with CheckMate data, you can now save it as an assembly and have all the CheckMate data go across (be sure to save the part file just before the conversion). Also, a similar technique is used to make it that if the CheckMate add in is started after a part is loaded, the CM data now comes alive.

    V455

    12.1 14.0

    FIXED

    On Ouptut Program screen, recall Initial CS field being stuck at SOFTOR.

    V451

    12.1 14.0

    FIXED

    at least 4 point are output for a scan mode line measurement (Equator may filter out first and last so if only 2 or 3 points were measured the line measurement might fail with "too few points" error.

    V450

    12.1 14.0

    ENHANCEMENT

    reworked the datum offset code. Instead of setting a zero on the datum it offsets only by the datum's deviation. This way all moves and measurements regardless of which axis system they're in should be nominally the same, i.e. no out of volume issues.

    V449

    12.1 14.0

    FIXED

    DMIS output for distance between the first point on a multi-point surface measurement was coming out in touch point style: OUTPUT/FA(PN001),FA(SP00201). When the surface measurement is converted to scan mode this now comes out as: CONST/POINT,F(W0001),TR,FA(SP002)[1]   and OUTPUT/FA(PN001),FA(W0001)

    V448

    12.1 14.0

    FIXED
