New features of version 6.1

We are very happy to announce the release of Version 6.1, only after four months since the release of version 6, which will provided free of charge to all users of version 6.

Although this release is an intermediate one, it is packed with some great new features, like the implementation of links with CAD and FEA programs, and the new American design code (AISC) that will help our users operating in regions where US code is applied and open new markets for us. Of course, more innovations in User interface will make the every day work with our software even more easier.

Tekla – Connection link (beta version)

We have developed a new link between applications Tekla Structures and IDEA Connection. It enables a creation of the IDEA Connection project directly by using of a command(makro) in Tekla Structures.

Advance steel – Connection link (beta version)

At the same time we have also developed a new link between applications Advance Steel and IDEA Connection. It enables a creation of the IDEA Connection project directly by using of a new command concheck in Advance Steel.

American AISC code – both LRFD and ASD

We are very happy to implement in this version the American AISC-LRFD and AISC-ASD codes. The type of code can be selected within definition of a new project.

Import of multiple load cases

Now it is possible to import  by copy/paste from Excel sheet at once, more than one load case.

Graphical representation of welds and bolts

Welds are drawn in the 3D window together with results now – selected weld is highlighted. All weld intensities are displayed with the same scale.

Bolts labels we complemented by bolts numbers to simplify bolt identification.

Schematic pictures of bolts arrangement were added into result tables (Results, Report\Detailed)

Databases of bolts

Input of bolts was simplified. Bolts are sorted by material grade only. Standard EN and AISC bolts are provided according to selected code.

Gallery of pictures

A picture gallery was implemented into the latest version as a additional tool, which provides the possibility of  saving views in the 3D window into pictures in Gallery. This creates a gallery of stored pictures for each project that can by inputted into the Detailed Report.
