In this release of MAXSURF there are significant enhancements to the MAXSURF modules, including:
Modeler: new trimesh features including simplified generation of box and tube primitive shapes; generating prismatic trimeshes by extruding a curve; Boolean operations (union and intersection) on closed trimesh surfaces.
Modeler: Export of vessel structural model to Multiframe for analysis (technology preview)
Modeler: Productivity enhancements to facilitate setting the cutting surface list and surface color.
Motions: User-defined RAO import from text files extended to allow range of speeds and heading.
Shape Editor: Enhancements to section shape and cutout (punch-out) definition and editing.
