Enhancements and known issues resolved in ANSA

Known issues resolved in ANSA

CAD Import/Export

The AP242 parser is now updated and can parse parts with many versions, by activating the respective option.


Unexpected termination could occur when using the function from Focus group commands, while different models were open in multiple windows.

Modular Run Management

Deleted Subsystems would erroneously re-appear during build of connecting subsystems, if the Connecting Subsystems contained connectors referencing the deleted Subsystems.

Connections & Assembly

The RBE3-PENTA-RBE3 seamweld realization would produce duplicate RBE3s.


When the base.Cog() function was applied on Edges and Facets, the COG was occasionally erroneously calculated.

Batch Mesh

The CFD meshing algorithm would occasionally fail, resulting in a of poor quality mesh, with large growth rate and element size differences. Proximity and size fields might also not be taken into account.


ANSA would abort launching, when the check box "Preview Include Structure" had been selected upon Input.


Unexpected termination would occur while exporting a model in ADAMS solver dataset format (.adm) or when the model included flex bodies without any active modes.

Design Analysis: Unexpected termination could occur on models with existing results, after editing a Kin_Measure entity.

Known issues resolved in EPILYSIS


Maximum disk usage report would not include output file size and would erroneously be reported as 0 bytes, when the "IN ANSA" option was used.

Enhancements and known issues resolved in META

Known issues resolved in META


ASAM ODS v5 and v6 servers are now supported and their data can be accessed / viewed through the DM Browser tool.

The capabilities offered include:
- Viewing the collected items in various simple or hierarchical views
- Applying queries to fetch instances of application elements
- Viewing attributes / relations of the instances of application elements
- Sending curves, images, videos or other data to view in META Viewer or META


3D results would not be exported correctly in .csv format.

Lighting Settings read from an older .xml file (prior to v21.1.x.) would not be saved correctly, and thus not read correctly. They would also not get updated in META defaults, when lighting preset changed, or in META defaults table via commands.

Read Results - MARC

Reading a .t16 results file right after a .bdf geometry file was imported, could lead to unexpected termination.


Fasteners would not be not visualized correctly. Their couplings were omitted, leading to connectivity issues between parts when performing focus actions.


META would terminate when reading modal or panel participation results from OptiStruct punch file.

NVH Calculators

After a successful FRF Assembly calculation, unexpected termination could occur when trying to calculate twice a modified FRF Assembly setup with errors in the Full check, but no errors in the Assembly check.

Moreover, regarding Modal / FRF Correlation, unexpected termination could occur when duplicate node pairs existed in the corresponding list.

Enhancements and known issues resolved in KOMVOS

Known issues resolved in KOMVOS

ML Training for 3D field results would fail to be completed for models with more than approximately 1.5 million elements, due to memory shortage.

Moreover, 2D plot Prediction would occasionally fail to be created.
