We will be considering that. This was a fairly last minute feature for us as centerline lofting almost didn't make it in - and without this feature centerline lofting is essentially impossible in all but extremely trivial cases. It is the way it is for the sake of speed, but we get that...
Nate is right - this can be done in Sheet Metal. I'd upload the file but I'm using a version you wouldn't be able to open right now. Start a new SMP, make a small tab in the middle, create a bend-only flange with the proper radius and length, trim the ends, flatten.
We've updated the release page for v24:
A note on performance:
One thing that was not noted in the previous thread is that a lot of work has gone into performance improvements. Things like large sketch management, editing in context of large assemblies...
This is highly dependent on the design and can come up in many ways. You should upload your specific parts. A classic example is constraining a door to two hinges. The 2nd hinge will fail since the door is actually fully constrained with the first hinge.
Another example is that you think 2...
This is not the same issue as people are talking about related to "stuff in sketches" bc these are not sketch entities. No, this should not be happening (I can't really confirm it properly bc I don't have the other files). This is well below any amount of stuff in a drawing that should cause...
There was a brief period a few years ago where the migration to the new PDF engine was causing some issues related to symbols. However, those have long since been addressed.
Is there an actual specific issue that you are referring to by chance? We get almost no complaints about PDF...
The practical limits are:
Your tolerance for FPS stuttering
What can you actually purchase in these strange times
Alibre Design doesn't really have an upper limit on resolution - if you're trying to run an 8K design rig you can though it would be insane, a bad...
We are in the process of migrating our support back end to another platform. You may see a temporary SSL (security certificate) issue when visiting support.alibre.com. We expect this to resolve reasonably soon. Just FYI.
A revamped File menu experience provides immediate access to part data, save settings, and more.
The multi-component save dialog is getting an overhaul.
Massive EQ Editor overhaul with:
New responsive grid control
A little preview of what we've been up to. :D
Realtime Previews in Sheet Metal
SM features now compute in real time like regular part features
Assembly Constraint Dialog - Apply
An apply button is now at the bottom of the dialog.
User Profile versioning
Sometimes you need to go between...
I've been using 11 as a daily driver for a long while since the dev builds came out. My takeaways:
AD works, for me, in the dev builds, just fine.
In general, it is way better and more polished
Things are easier, not harder - though YMMV depending on what 'things' you are trying to do...
