Changes, extensions and bug fixes since version
Start and Import
Extension Further units of measurement are available, which can be assigned to the characteristic classes.
See Administrator's Manual > Configurations and import > Parameter file "CharacteristicClasses" > Dimension unit
See Administrator's Manual > Configurations and import > Parameter file "CharacteristicClasses" > Unit of the tolerance limits
See User manual > More > Terms >Measurement (sizes-)

Bug fix The characteristic properties "Tolerance table" and the corresponding "Tolerance class" are now correctly created again when loading an ICP file.
User Interface
Bug fix After confirming a change in the "Characteristics Properties" window, the view of the characteristics list no longer jumps back up, but remains at the current position.

Bug fix After a longer period of inactivity of the software, the currently open drawing window was no longer displayed. Only by closing and opening the window could the view be restored. The error has been fixed.
File Management
Bug fix If an ICP project file (*.icp) was loaded, which was created on the basis of a PDF file, any embedded raster graphics were not saved in the project. This bug has been fixed.
Analysis and Characteristic properties
Extension The number of significant digits can now be specified for the results of conversions (degrees, minutes, seconds in decimal angles) and calculations (tolerance values as a percentage of the nominal dimension).
 See User manual > Settings > Settings > Characteristic > “Numerical precision” group
 See User manual > More > Terms > Numerical precision

Extension When stamping, categories can be preselected in the stamping with dialog. A category defined in this way is now also taken into account when assigning characteristic properties. If, for example, the category "Theoretically exact measure" is defined, a characteristic will be created without tolerance values, if the setting allows this.
See User manual > Functions > Characteristic > Automatic stamping
See User manual > Functions > Characteristic > Manually stamp

Extension The function with which "simplified surface data" can be defined and recognized when stamping a drawing was previously only available for very customer-specific drawing entries. The function is now available for all simplified entries.
 See User manual > Settings > Settings > Characteristic > “Simplified indications” group See User manual > More > Terms > Simplified indications

Extension When stamping manually, an "empty" attribute of type "attributive" and class "word specification" can now be created by confirming the quick input dialog without entering a value.
See User manual > Functions > Characteristic > Manually stamp

Bug fix and Extention A characteristic is automatically assigned the category "Inspection dimension" if the drawing entry is marked with a laterally rounded frame. The same applies to the "Theoretically exact dimension" category, which is assigned if the drawing entry is marked with a rectangular frame. A prerequisite in both cases is that the entry Automatic is selected under "Category" in the Stamping with dialog box, that all drawing elements are captured by drawing a frame when stamping and that the frames consist of unique polylines.
 See User manual > More > Terms > Category (characteristic-)
Saving and Export
Extension Maßeinheiten können nun auch in den Prüfplan im Excel- und im CSV-Format exportiert werden. Für den Excel-Export stehen die Parameter "NominalValue" und "ToleranceValue" zur Verfügung. Der CSV-Export wurde um die Spalten 33 und 34 erweitert. 
 See User manual > Weiteres > Excel-Vorlagen erstellen und anpassen 
 See Administrator's Manual > Export > Prüfplanformat CSV > Merkmaldaten
Extension The "Missing fonts" dialog, which is displayed when importing a drawing file if the fonts contained therein cannot be found on the computer, can be suppressed under "Settings > Import > Font setting group". This option is also available in the "Missing fonts" dialog itself.
See Settings > Settings > Import > “Font replacement” group

Version 11.11.10
Published: 03.02.2017
Info Version 11.11.10 removes several errors reported by customers and partners.

  • A Bug in the CAD core was corrected, which prevented the load of drawing under very special circumstances.
  • The CAD kernel now displays an error if a PDF file can't be loaded.
  • The comparison routine now works better with drawings from SolidWorks.
  • Assigning new general tolerances will now be displayed correct again in the feature table.
  • Loading an old project version now works as intended, if the features contain characters instead of numbers.
  • Angles will be exported without places after the decimal point, if the angle doesn't have them.
  • Corrected some typing errors in the tolerance tables, which prevented infra-CONVERT to load them.
  • The bundled Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime was updates to the most current version (SP1).
