Enhancements in ANSA>

Connections & Assembly
・Connections are now always realized in the same order, based on the connection Id and type
 to improve the reproducibility of realization results.

NVH Console Checks
・New functionality added in Model Check for all NVH Console configurations.

<Known issues resolved in ANSA>

Decks > Results Mapping
・Unexpected termination would occur when applying pressure results mapping for specific 
 source/ target NASTRAN files.

LS-DYNA > Input
・Activating the General Includes option 'Preview include structure' could lead to unexpected 
 termination.

Pam-Crash > Checks[Contacts]
・Edge-to-edge penetration check would be erroneously performed for all contact types except 
 from types 37, 43, 46. Now it is performed only for the above three contact types.

NVH Console > Forces Responses
・Multiple frequency ranges would not be passed properly for the root cause analysis.
  As a result Forces on Node and Forces on Component were not calculated at all.

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
<Enhancements in ANSA>

Model Browser
・Replace > Part/Subsystem: The mapping of solid properties is now supported while
 the mapping of  solid elements has been further improved.

Safety
・New offset options have been introduced for the correct marking of the seat impact area for
  ECER17.

CAD to ANSA Translators
・NX12 files are now supported using the NXOpen libraries.

<Known issues resolved in ANSA>

General
・Utilities >Transform: This function could occasionally lead to corrupted database,
 when applied on  a model that contained volumes.

Model Browser
・Connections: After Converting FE to Connections, the contact used by the connection would
 not  appear in the Model Browser as related to the connected Parts.

・File > Input, Merge: All connections read would be offset by the maximum current connection
 ID. This could lead to connections quickly getting huge IDs. Subsequently, once the max ID
 reached  the 2^31 limit, no additional connections could be created.

・FE Representations > NASTRAN CWELD: Duplicate CWELDs could be created upon the
 realization of such  connections when the specified spacing was smaller than the existing
 element length.

Volume Mesh
・Scripting > mesh.VolumesMeshV():

- Invalid argument would lead to unexpected termination.

- Execution in nogui mode could lead to unexpected termination.

Batch Meshing
・General: When both connected multi-instantiated parts and frozen mesh existed, 
 "Synchronize representation" or "Batch Mesh" could lead to unexpected termination.

Decks
・Output: ANSA would occasionally cease to respond during File > Output of *.gz files in case of
 insufficient disk space.

<Enhancements in META>

Curves
・Support of *CONSTRAINED_SPR2 elements results (Failure, Length, Resultant Moment) when
 loading from swforc and binout LS-DYNA files.

NVH Calculators
・When requesting animations from the FRF Assembly tool, the rigid body components were
 animated with zero displacements. They are now calculated based on their geometrical
 characteristics.

Modal Parameter Estimation
・A button has been added to collect all poles of last order without having to explicitly pick them
 with the mouse.

<Known issues resolved in META>

General
・The shortcut "Ctrl + Left/Right Arrows" to switch visibility, could be applied in wrong states.

Curves
・Curves from LS-DYNA elout files with solid strain results might not be read correctly.

・Performance improvement in Copying - Pasting curves.

Curve Functions
・Type Min was incorrectly calculated in case the "Apply on X-range" did not match a curve
 point.

Project Files
・Saving project with states created by User Field Function failed to save all states.

<Enhancements in ANSA>

Data management
・It is now possible to check real-time whether the Model Browser entities of a model exist in 
 DM with the aid of the new column labeled "DM".

・When replacing a Part with a different version in DM, the internal Model Setup entities of the 
 outgoing part would be kept, resulting in duplicated entries in the database.

Connections & Assembly
・Several enhancements have been made for the function Connector>
 New[From A_POINTs(auto)] that creates connectors from pairs of Assembly Points. 
 The function can now run on visible A_POINTs only, while in preview mode, it offers improved 
 handling of connectors that through both the list and the drawing area.

Task Manager
・The option of generating video files (already available in Morphing Parameters), has been 
 added in the context menu of the Optimization Task.

Kinetics
・The animation of deformations/ stresses/ strains for flex bodies consisting of solid elements 
 is now supported.

Plugins
・The Laminate Convert can be used for PAMCRASH model set-up.


<Known issues resolved in ANSA>

CAD Data to ANSA Translators
・The parallel translation processes by multiple users logged in the same workstation and 
 a common tmp directory would not be successful.

Model Browser
・The ANSA id of a part could be changed when saving and re-opening a database.

Data Management
・Applying the Change Representation > Lumped Mass function on a part, 
 might double the mass of the part.

Connections & Assembly
・The Auto-Connect function would erroneously detect the same part multiple times in case of 
 unmeshed geometry.

Shell Mesh
・When pasting nodes and single bounds changed to double bounds, 
 the FE perimeters would not get updated automatically.

・The function Wrap > Constant Length would not take into account the middle nodes and
  could thus generate intersections in the "Shells out of structure" mode.

Volume Mesh
・The resulting number of Steps and Distance would occasionally differ from the given values.

Decks
・The function Util>Change Type would corrupt the ANSA database file when features or 
 FE perimeters were present.

NASTRAN
・The Header would fail to read command entries that extended to more than one lines.

PAM-CRASH
・Upon output, the Functions (FUNCT) window would erroneously appear.

Abaqus
・In certain cases, the FILM entities defined on solids would not be imported.

RADIOSS
・Function fields in material cards would not accept IDs with nine digits.

OPTISTRUCT
・DRESPi DRESP1 was written upon output with the PTYPE field, even for RTYPEs not 
 supporting PTYPE field, causing errors to OPTISTRUCT's solution.

 for each processed simulation or test results. It displays as bar chart all the results the 
 selected regulation requires along with the regulation limits.

<Known issues resolved in META>

Decks
・LS-DYNA: INCLUDE TRANSFORM and INCLUDE PATH keywords would not be read correctly.

States & Animation
・States with sequential ids were missing from the UNV 2414 format.

Linear Combination

BETA LM v6.4 has been released.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
New features [BETA_LM_v6.4]
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
The following bug is revised in this version.
A loss in communication between License Server and clients has been noticed in some rare cases,
especially when all the license credits are in use.
As a result, it was possible that some of the already running BETA CAE Systems applications,
were forced to finish.
In beta_lm_v6.4 several performance fixes have been implemented in order to enforce
the uninterrupted communication between the License Server and the clients.
The new version is compatible with all the previous BETA CAE Systems applications.
However, the improved performance is even more obvious by using BETA CAE Systems versions
released after 14th September 2015 (i.e. v15.3.2, v16.0.1, etc).

Regarding the details of the bugfix,please refer to following release note.
