・ANSA_v17.1.2_Release_Notes.pdf

<Enhancements in ANSA>
---Model Browser---
・A new default column "MBContainer" has been added to all Database Browser lists to provide 
 information on the Model Browser Container an entity belongs to. The Model Browser Container 
 can be a Subsystem, a Simulation model, or a Loadcase.
・Moreover, the ability to create a report for the selected Parts/Groups has been introduced 
 in the Model Browser window through the Actions>Create Report function.

---Compare---
・New capabilities have been added to the SGRAPH functionality to enable the mapping of PIDs 
 and Parts Hierarchy between two structures.

---Data Management---
・The "IsGroup" column has been added in the Part List tab of the Product Tree Editor,
 to facilitate the filtering of groups.

---NASTRAN---
・A new check Checks>Loadcase has been introduced in the Header's list, which detects 
 whether a loadcase file has the requested entities or not.

---NVH Console---
・In addition to the new capability to open and edit the "Jobs Manager" window with any other 
 NVHC window, Bush Sensitivity calculations support linking of symmetric connectors and DOFs.

---LS-DYNA---
・Materials *MAT_211/*MAT_SPR_JLR, *MAT_215/*MAT_4A_MICROMEC and *MAT_280/*MAT_GLASS are 
 now supported.

<Known issues resolved in ANSA>
---General---
・The Utilities>Compress function would erroneously delete NASTRAN THERMAL related entities 
 or parameters, such as SPOINTs, TEMPDs and nodes belonging to application region.
・The Database Browser>Save List option would erroneously save all entities of a list of the DBB, 
 instead of only the selected ones.

---CAD Import / Export---
・Translating a CATProduct with Flatten assemblies option deactivated might lead to 
 unexpected termination.

---Model Browser---
・In Subsystems and, especially, Model Set-Up Entities ANSA would fail to recognize and 
 hence list SPCs and Forces.

---Model Browser---
・Changing the Type of a User Attribute through the drop-down menu in the respective window 
 could lead to unexpected termination.

---Compare---
・Upon creating of a Comparison Report through the "Compare Tool", the identified differences 
 in the Thickness of parts would not be reported properly.

---Connections & Assembly---
・Connectors in GEBs unexpectedly failed to be realized in case of Assembly Point search pattern, 
 when the Assembly Points were created by Bolts.

---FE Representations---
・Selecting or typing a ROBSCAN pattern in Connection Manager could lead to unexpected termination.

---Scripting---
・Hot Points created by script function Base.HotPointsWeldSpot() would not be collected via 
 the CollectNewModelEntities.report method.
・The IsolateSolidFlanges() script function might not work when the first argument was set to 'None'.

---Volume Mesh---
・Erroneous detection of inner volume with Volumes>Define [Auto-Detect] function, 
 in certain cases with Layers in exclude or collapse mode.
・In certain cases, layers generation could lead to unexpected termination.

---NASTRAN---
・The check Checks>Penetration [Intersections] would not identify CWELD elements penetrating shells.

---LS-DYNA---
・The DATABASE_OPTION settings would be written twice (before and after the Includes),
 if Includes were also written in the output file (inline).

---Abaqus---
・Cases in AUXILIARIES>CONTACT>Assistant, where the activation of the Create Individual Contacts option 
 in Contacts Wizard could lead to unexpected termination.

---PERMAS---
・Ortho3d MEDINA materials are now read and converted to anisotropic materials with orthotropic 
 properties in PERMAS.

---CGNS---
・The output of models consisting of shell mesh only would lead to erroneous result.
