What's new in Origin APPS

    What's New in the 500 version series

    Posted on May 18, 2017 11:59:21 AM

    CMEPCD2EQU x599
    - fixed spurious program note on DIMENSION_FORMAT
    - better handle beginning with "illegal" characters like ".245-1"

    CMEngine and all other configurations x599
    - host id is now machine based rather than user based
    - after upgrading to x599 or later those using temporary codes will need new codes
    - unlocking to dongle not affected
    CMEXXX2NET x599
    - default Net-Inspect output updated to new XML format.
    - old format still available by adding OLDFMT as command line parameter

    CMECAL2EQU x591
    - added check box to produce SNSLCT statements instead of the TOOL CHANGE DETECTED comment
    - added check box to control handling of ProjectedDirectionVector. Default is checked in which
      case the referenceAxis is used to alter XYZ-IJK values. When unchecked XYZ-IJK values are left
      unchanged. We have seen files requiring both of these different approaches. When the internal
      Calypso flag that controls this behavior is discovered, the check box will be removed and the
      correct approach applied automatically.
    CMEXXX2NET x590
    - added new anything to Net-Inspect translator to operate in drag and drop mode using the same
      auto file format detecting front end as the QIF translator.

    CMEPCD2EQU x565
    - the through-plane setting for CLEARANCE_PLANE is now ignored if it is different but along the
      same axis as the clear-plane setting, eg, XPLUS and XMINUS are considered the same and so the
      through-plane is ignored.
    CMEPCD2EQU x562
    - the last probe move before the first alignment feature is now copied to the cal segment as the first move
    - the probe move before the first cal segment feature is now copied as the last move to the pre-cal segment
    - if AUTO_CLEAR_PLANE is on then internal moves are in the clear plane regardless of the programmed XYZ value
    - if AUTO_CLEAR_PLANE is on then entry and exit moves are added before and after a feature if they
      already haven't been by added by a MOVE_CLEARP
    CMEPCD2EQU x561
    - fixed issue with pre-cal alignsments not outputting TRANS statements
    - fixed issue with surface vector on constructed lines from single GCURVE
    CMEPCD2EQU x560
    - references features labels on pre-cal coordinate systems still pointed at post-cal
      names causing issues with DATSET datum labels, fixed.
    - pre-cal/post-cal split was not capturing all features that needed to be measured in
      cal mode, fixed.
    - BF_MATH_TYPE now captured for least squares, maximum inscribed and minimum circumscribed
    - MOVE_CLEARP moves had issue with certain feature types causing exit point from a previous
      feature to be used instead, fixed.
    - **TEST** PRCOMP/OFF PRCOMP/ON issued on either side of CONST/LINE...BF..FA()[1.n]... in attempt
      to address issues with probe compensation on best-fit from points features ** FEEDBACK REQUESTED **
    CMECAL2EQU x559
    - GBK check box added to main dialog. If checked identifier names in actuals and inspection
      are assumed to be GBK encoded (2-byte special characters). These GBK encodings are
      converted to Unicode to capture the correct geoactual files. Use the GBK switch when
      geoactual files contain Chinese characters but not when geoactual files contain
      Japanese characters.

    CMECAL2EQU x558
    - fix issue with PATH/ARC swept angle with left-handed cylinder measurements

    CMECAL2EQU x557
    - added support for constructed circle from cylinder/cone
    - added support for surface element #OMGeoCons

    CMECAL2EQU x555
    - if the #normVector is of #ProjectedDirectionVector type the #referenceAxis
      becomes important. If it is negative then 2 of 3 axes XYZ and IJK need to be
      inverted: -1 means flip YZJK, -2 means flip XZIK, and -3 means flip XYIJ.
      Not doing this flipping had almost no effect on most measurements because
      nominal planes are typically flat to a major axis (even in a rotated coordinate
      system). The nominal representation of the plane would be offset from the
      general location of the geoactual data but correctly located in the important axis. Only
      when a plane was canted in the local coordinate system did bad things happen (like measured
      lines appearing in space off the part and nowhere near the geoactual data). With this
      fix the nominal features are now correctly located.

    CMEXXX2XXX x554
    - output counters disabled to allow any number of outputs during program debugging

    CMECAL2EQU x554
    - added button and menu item to reload actuals/geoactuals and re-output CAL file
      for remastering from a different set of actuals without changing the existing
    - added grey-out interaction: re-output menu/button items greyed out until a CMX
      or Calypso dataset is loaded
    - after initial translation, database is automatically saved to a CMX file with the
      same name root as the CAL. DMIS. and LOG.txt files which is the name of the
      Calypso dataset folder
    CMECAL2EQU x553
    - added ability to CONST/CIRCLE..BF.FA()[1,n] to construct circle from points
      of a cylinder
    - added support for #OMTecTorusRadDisc radial scans on a torus as PATH/CURVE
    CMEPCD2EQU x553
    - added support for RECALL_ALIGN

    CMEPCD2EQU x550
    - fixed issue with degree-of-freedom count resulting in no CAL segment
    - added a "to-master" coodinate system at the end of the pre-cal segment to ensure
      DMIS and CAL coordinate match
    CMECAL2EQU x549
    - added support for scanned spheres (only touch points supported previously)
    - double(+) helical scanned cylinders now handled as multiple path scans
