New GiD official version 14.0.1

The new GiD14.0.1 official version have been released and can be downloaded for all platforms.

Check¬†what’s new¬†in this version:

General:

  • Progress bar¬†tcl error solved.
  • Snapshots:¬†red line when doing gif solved. Also happened with gif and jpg snapshots.
  • Undo: avoid that some file dialogs are re-opened while doing undo

Preprocess:

  • Frozen layers:¬†avoid delete lowerentities on frozen layers.
  • Mesh menu options¬†correctly placed: Create raster nodes and elements.
  • Zmesher: fix bug not meshing 2D isolated nodes
  • IGES import, fixed bug with unbounded plane entities
  • Fixed bug dividing a curve very close to an existing knot, better not to insert a new one.
  • DXF export, fixed bug with GiD arcs.

Postprocess:

  • Results’ cache + Convert cuts to sets:¬†add warning and suggestion to increase memory and save model just after the conversions, otherwise the created results will be lost.
  • Complex results:¬†solved crash when drawing complex matrices after drawing complex vectors.
  • corrected error: last selected result and automatic comments are wrong when selecting a contour fill of a different result thant the last used for deformation.
  • HDF5 read + results cache: corrected error when canceling the reading process.
  • Utilities–> Set Contour Limits¬†corrected behaviour: it’s maintained when changing from post to pre and back, between sessions, in the legend it’s drawn different than user-defined limits, and has been added to the preferences window in the¬†Contour Fill¬†section.
  • Line graphs:¬†correct calculation of the ‘line variation‘ option, i.e. solved loop problem. Line variation uses the 3D distance of the created graph as abcisses, for instance on non planar surfaces.
  • Line graphs:¬†added option ‘Line projection‘, which uses the 2-clicked-point-line projected distances as abcisses.
  • Complex scalars:¬†gid now calculates the modulus of complex scalars and shows it to the user for results visualization.
  • Complex vectors:¬†GiD now calculates the modulus of each x, y, z component and shows it to the user for results visualization.
  • Complex scalars:¬†also appear in vectors menu, to display the complex number as a vector, as well as¬†Complex vectors¬†components (x, y, z), which can be viewed as separated complex numbers.
  • Interior faces of volume sets:¬†now enabling interior faces of hexahedra, prisms and pyramids they are drawn in va/vbo when visualizing gauss points results (contour fill).
  • Vtk export: fixed bug exporting a mesh without any result
  • KML export: fix Tcl error opening the file dialog.
  • Fixed memory bug saving cuts to file.

Customization:

  • Tcl-command:¬†RestartGUI to restart Tcl/Tk gui after icons and fonts changes.
  • Raster GDAL import, fix error calculating z with no_data values
  • Tcl-command list entities:¬†corrected changed format of output results information. New format is under -nice option to see.
  • Fixed bug drawing all materials, color of elements became corrupted
  • Fixed bug in .bas templates with variables with name starting like math funcions max, min, sin, cos,…
  • Transform: fixed bug transforming questions storing tables #N#
  • Transform: fixed bug transforming conditions with symbols associated

GiD team will be present in the WCCM 2018

GiD team will be present in the congress with a exhibitor booth. Visit us and you will be able to know all the news from GiD v14 from the hand of the GiD developers.  Feel free to ask your questions and give us your feedback.

Find more information about the WCCM in wccm2018.org.

See you in NY!

9th GiD Convention: a success of participation

The 9th GiD Convention that was celebrated from 6 to 8 June 2018 in Barcelona was a success of participation.

The meeting that is celebrated every two years, hosted a workshop with a full programme of conferences (18), attended by 60 people, and a complete list of courses (GiD basic and advanced, Kratos, Anura3D and GiD+OpenSees) that have been also very well welcomed by the participants.

Half a hundred people have followed the different courses proposed by the GiD team on occasion of the 9th edition of this meeting that this year commemorated also 20 years of GiD as a commercial product. Also, during the event, it was presented the 14th version of GiD, recently launched to the market.

The courses materials are available to download.

Find more information regarding the new GiD v14 here.

GiD present in the ECCM-ECFD 2018

cabecera

From 11th to 15th June the 6th European Conference on Computational Mechanics and the 7th European Conference on Computational Fluid Dynamics will take place in Glasgow, Scotland.

The congresses will take place coinciding with 25th anniversary of ECCOMAS (European Congress on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences an Engineering),

All the attendees will find the new GiD brochure inside the congress bags, presenting the new GiD version 14.

If you are attending the congress and you have any question regarding new GiD v14 just let us know in our social media!

For further information please visit www.eccm-ecfd2018.org.

 

9th GiD convention registration deadline extended to 1st May

The registration deadline for the 9th GiD convention has been extended to 1st May.

The objective of convention is to bring together users and developers of GiD pre/post processing system in order to exchange ideas and experiences on the generation of data for computer simulation and the graphical visualization of numerical results.

Join us during 3 days of workshops and courses about simulation. You also will have the opportunity to discover GiD v14, that will be launched that day.

Remember that thee courses attendees will receive an exclusive 1 year GiD v14 professional licence.

Don’t miss the opportunity and check all the information regarding the event here.

See you in Barcelona next June!

Buy SpreadDEM in the GiD shop

SpreadDEMNow you can purchase your SpreadDEM licences throught the GiD shop.

SpreadDEM is developed for MS Windows and can be purchased as a local or USB licence. The local version is a licence for a single PC/Laptop while the USB is a portable licence associated to a specific memory stick.

SpreadDEM is the first industrial numerical tool to perform virtual experiments of centrifugal fertilizer spreaders oriented to designers and producers of agricultural machinery.

Uses GiD as pre and post processor and takes advantage of the GiD customization tools to adapt the GUI appearance to SpreadDEM needs.

Based on DEMPack technology, a Discrete Element Method (DEM) software for bulk material simulation, the trajectory of every single fertilizer particle is evaluated from the hopper to their contact with the ground.

Perform virtual experiments of centrifugal spreaders with SpreadDEM

LogoNew

SpreadDEM is the first industrial numerical tool to perform virtual experiments of centrifugal fertilizer spreaders oriented to designers and producers of agricultural machinery. Is based on GiD and DEMPack.

Obtain spread patterns, transversal distributions of fertiliser and the coefficient of variation easily by importing your spreader geometry.

Improve your design by analysing the detailed flow of particles from the hopper onto the disc and from there to the ground, tracking individual trajectories, velocities and impact points.

SpreadDEM has been developed in CIMNE by the DEMPack team.

Based on GiD and DEMPack

SpreadDEM uses GiD as pre and post processor and takes advantage of the GiD customization tools to adapt the GUI appearance to SpreadDEM needs.

Based on DEMPack technology, a Discrete Element Method (DEM) software for bulk material simulation, the trajectory of every single fertilizer particle is evaluated from the hopper to their contact with the ground.

Easy to use

SpreadDEM provides a complete and practical solution to optimize the design of the spreading machinery becoming an alternative to trial-and-error experimental testing. Thanks to its easy-to-use interface, users are able to simulate in a few intuitive steps and with minimal training the most significant results for the fertilizer spreading.

Events

Past November, SpreadDEM team attended the¬†Agritechnica 2017, the world’s No. 1 trade fair for agricultural machinery, presenting¬†SpreadDEM to the leading manufacturers of agricultural machinery.

In February 2018 SpreadDEM team will attend FIMA2018, the 40 International Fair of Agricultural Machinery, that will take place on 20-24 February in Zaragoza, Spain.
