SmartCAM v2015 Miscellaneous Improvements

The SmartCAM Version 2015 release includes a small number of miscellaneous technical improvements which are of benefit across the entire range of products.

Auto Save

No more lost work or time wasted in the event of unexpected issues.

A popular enhancement request by SmartCAM users, a new auto-save option has been added. The time interval for the automatic saving of the current model work-in-progress can be set using the new feature, which can be found in Utility > Options > General Options.

ACIS Kernel Updated

SmartCAM has been updated to use the ACIS R25 solids kernel, used in SmartCAM solid model functions.

Updated CAD Data Translation

The optional Autodesk® Inventor® Connection native translator has been updated to support Inventor® 2015 files.

Prompt to Remove Unavailable Files From Most Recently Used Lists

The File and Macro menus have a "most recently used" list. When you click on a file, from this menu, it is opened. However, if the file no longer exists at the location saved in the menu, then you will be prompted to remove the item from the menu.

This allows you to remove items, from the menus, that were moved, deleted, or renamed. If the file is meant to be at the location but is temporarily missing, such as files on a mounted drive where the drive mount is currently not available, you can opt to leave the menu item in place.

Wall Offset Sequence behavior

The order sequence of offsets when using Profile and Group modes with Wall Offset is now consistent; both options will sequence offsets with the first one being closest to the original geometry. A ‘Reverse’ option has been added which can be used to reverse this behavior.

Nearest / Furthest first offset sequence has been made consistent when using Profile and Group Wall Offset
