GiD Versions

New GiD developer version 13.1.9d

A new developer version have been released. GiD13.1.9d is ready to download from our webpage.

Check¬†what’s new in this version:

Preprocess:

  • Fixed bug in unstructured quadrilateral mesher that made GiD crashes in some cases where the surface to mesh had holes.
  • Added some check in octree volume mesher when there are forced points inside volumes, to avoid pathological situations that may lead the program to crash. These pathological situations happens when a forced point suposed to be inside a volume is actually onto some of its contour surfaces.

Customization:

  • New plugin ‘gid_slippy’ and gid_map package to import topography from tile map servers
  • New tcl GiD_Project subcommand¬†GiD_Project view ?clip_planes_x |clip_planes_y| clip_planes_z| clip_planes_margin| rotation_vector| rotation_factor |rotation_matriz| rotation_center| perspective_distance| perspective_ortho_near| perspective_ortho_far| perspective_factor| perspective_view| view_mode| render_mode| ligth_vector?
  • New tcl GiD_OpenGL draw subcommands to allow handle textures: -gentextures -deletetextures -bindtexture
  • togl widget renamed to gid_togl (to avoid name conflict with tcl3d package) and added drawing callbacks to be defined in Tcl instead of C (-createcommand, -displaycommand, -reshapecommand, -destroycommand, -overlaydisplaycommand, -timercommand)
  • GiD_Info conditions -localaxes: new¬†-array¬†option to efficiently return as arrays the ids and values of local axes
  • New¬†GiD_Info library names|version|format_version <library_name>
  • GiD_ModifyData localaxis <condition_name> ?geometry|mesh? <entity_ids…> <entiy_euler_angles…>
  • GiD_Geometry list¬†new option¬†?-material <id_material>?¬†to filter the selection
  • New Tcl¬†GiD_Event_BeforeOpenFile
  • Predefined procedure to be used to select a group in a question as¬†TKWIDGET: GidUtils::TkwidgetGetGroupname
  • gid_cross_platform::run_as_administrator, return process exit value
  • Fixed bug changing field values with units of a just renamed material
  • Avoid crash of buffer overflow with too long questions in some special case

New version GiD 13.1.5d

A new developer version have been released. GiD13.1.5d is ready to download for all platforms from our webpage.

Discover what’s new in this version:

General:

  • Draw groups by color enhanced

Preprocess:

  • Labels: now geometry labels are also drawn in render flat (for lines and surfaces), render smooth (for surfaces) modes and any user/custom defined render modes.
  • Automatic creation of contact surfaces and contact volumes.

Postprocess:

  • Undefined results + VBO + Contour Fill: corrected error when drawing nodes without results, they were drawn using the out-of-minimum color, now they are drawn transparent, like with other rendering methods and previous versions. This also applies for result surface extrusion result visualization.
  • Results cache: corrected crash when using relative filenames in batch files and changing the current working directory and using results cache.
  • Contour Ranges: corrected the problem that caused that the text entires in the legend were cut and overdrawn.
  • Legend in external window: solved problem that ignore the current legend format.
  • “Send to new set”: corrected crahs when moving prisms and points to new sets.

Customization:

  • GiD_Event_AfterDeleteInterval

  • GiD_Geometry list new optional flag ?-higherentity <num_higher>? to filter entities with this amount of parents

New version GiD 13.1.4d

A new developer version have been released. GiD13.1.4d is ready to download for all platforms from our webpage.

Discover what’s new in this version:

General:

  • MS Windows file dialog box: remote folders shown properly in the folder list combobox, with their own icons.
  • Resize graphical window: corrected resize when layer and problem-type panels were embeded in main window.

Postprocess:

  • PLY export:
    • correction: now result names are enclosed in double quotes instead of using percent encoding,
    • correction: removed repeated face properties that halves the number of faces,
    • new: now the current contour fill nodal result visualization can be exported as texture with texture coordinates in ply format. The PLY export dialog let’s the user choose between eporting the current c.fill nodal visualized result or all results of the current selected step.
  • IsoLines: Corrected error when converting iso-lines (isosurfaces on surface meshes) to cuts/meshes.
  • Several Meshes: Correcter error when switching all meshes on or off, that only switches on or off the ones form the current step, now meshes of all steps are switched on or off.

Customization:

  • Customlib conditions: the icon of the groups linked to a condition can be customizable.
  • Fixed errors with classic units
  • Fixed bug of disappearing problemtype toolbar swapping pre/post or changind to full screen case

GiD 13.1.1d and GiD 13.0.1

A new developer and official version have been released.

Continue reading and find what’s new on these versions and download links.


Download the official version GiD13.0.1 here:

www.gidhome.com/download/official-versions


General:

  • File browser, fix error sorting filenames

Preprocess:

  • Fixed bug that prevent stop meshing
  • Fixed error drawing hexahedra meshes in render mode with immediate or display list mode
  • Fixed bug meshing surfaces skipping entities
  • Fixed bug transforming applied conditions with #CB# combobox question with items with parenthesis in its name

Postprocess:

  • Vectors: when printing with HighResolution, do not reduce the quality of the rendered vectors and do it only for faster screen rendering.
  • VRML vectorial output: support for textured contoour fill. Corrected output for MeshLab.
  • Merge: corrected the problem of parsing the options specified in the FileDialog window, also when used as macro.
  • Delete meshes/sets/cuts: corrected error that prevented the update of mesh sets windows.

Customization:

  • Fix bug of v13 [GiD_IntervalData set] returning -1 instead of the current interval

Download the developer version GiD13.1.1d here:

www.gidhome.com/download/developer-versions


General:

  • Internet Retrieve: added support to download extra themes, like GiD classic renewed
  • Dimensions of text, now the anchor is the upper-left corner instead of the center.

Preprocess:

  • Internal structure of layers changed (store pointers to parent and back layers)
  • Fixed bug transforming applied conditions with #CB# combobox question with items with parenthesis in its name
  • Show error message in case of structured volume mesh incompatibilities

Postprocess:

  • VRML vectorial output: support for textured contoour fill. Corrected output for MeshLab.
  • Merge: corrected the problem of parsing the options specified in the FileDialog window, also when used as macro.
  • Delete meshes/sets/cuts: corrected error that prevented the update of mesh sets windows.
  • Menu entry Convert to sets –> cuts / isosurfaces updated to:

Convert –> Cuts to sets (creates all results)

Convert –> Iso surfaces to cuts (interpolates results on demand)

Convert –> Iso surfaces to sets (creates all results)

Also the Convert Isosurfaces to cuts/sets will not draw isosurfaces, as they are converted to cuts/sets. Convert Isosurfaces to sets will also delete the intermediate cut, so at the end it only remains the new mesh-set that is the isosurface.

  • Contour Fill and other results visualizations: the command line also shows the first node with the minimum and maximum values
  • Unused nodes: now unsused nodes, i.e. not used on any element, the can be selected, for istance, for listing.
  • Utilities –> Status: now it wil show the number of read nodes and used nodes:

number of nodes = number of defined nodes

number of used nodes = number of nodes used by any elements

Customization:

  • New Tcl command GiD_Layers create|delete|edit|get|list|window|exists
  • New Tcl command GiD_EntitiesLayers assign|assign_back_layer|assign_front_layer|get|entity_layer
  • New Tcl subcommand GiD_File fflush
  • hdf5tcl package 1.8->1.9: support to get/set short, long and long long data
  • Fix bug of v13 [GiD_IntervalData set] returning -1 instead of the current interval
