A new version of the AI MAXTools suite is available! The latest build (20.00.00.0577, 2017-05-11) has the following improvements/fixes/changes (see below for download link):
 
New Features/Functions:
  • AI Select Circular Elements: New option: Filtering and tolerances can now be based on diameter or radius. Previously, all values were based on radius. This new user-selectable option allows the user to specify (and view) the values for the diameter, if desired.
Bug Fixes:
  • AI Select Circular Elements:Automatically finding matching cones didn't always work if "Same Plane" option was selected. Fixed.
Changed Functionality:
  • AI MAX Workplane: When positioning an existing workplane on a face, if the workplane is already parallel to the face, it is now simply translated to be on the face rather than doing a full repositioning of the workplane. In other words, the axis directions of the workplane do not change when aligning on a face.

A new version of the AI MAXTools suite is available! The latest build (20.00.00.0574, 2017-04-25) has the following improvements/fixes/changes (see below for download link):
 
New Features/Functions:
  • No changes.
Bug Fixes:
  • AI MAX ViewHQ: Creating a Drawlist from a configuration would fail if the configuration didn't have any drawlist or camera information (such as for an "Explode" configuration). Now if the configuration has camera or drawlist (or both) information, it will be used. If there is no camera or drawlist information, the user is notified.
Changed Functionality:
  • No changes.

A new version of the AI MAXTools suite is available! The latest build (20.00.00.0571, 2017-04-25) has the following improvements/fixes/changes (see below for download link):
 
New Features/Functions:
  • AI MAX ViewHQ: Added ability to create a new Drawlist based on a configuration. This allows you to get access to the drawlist and camera view from a configuration without having to activate it (activating a configuration affects your undo history and cancels any existing commands). This also allows you to effectively do a "Draw Only" on a configuration (activating a configuration's drawlist doesn't clear the current drawlist of any of the displayed objects that are not under the configuration's owner). The name of the configuration is used as the name of the newly-created Drawlist, and the Preferred View (position 0) is assigned from the configuration's stored camera view.
Bug Fixes:
  • AI MAX Export 2D: Output directory was not always being set correctly in some cases. Fixed.
Changed Functionality:
  • No changes.

A new version of the AI MAXTools suite is available! The latest build (20.00.00.0567, 2017-04-17) has the following improvements/fixes/changes (see below for download link):
 
New Features/Functions:
  • AI MAX Share: Circular Elements Auto Selection: Elements are now sorted (as before) by their distance from the source element, but are now grouped by face, and those groups are sorted by their closest element to the source element. A surprisingly nice feature.
Bug Fixes:
  • AI MAX Export: When running under Modeling version 15 or earlier, in some cases all parts would be in the export list, even if the "Parts" export option was turned OFF. Fixed.
  • AI MAX Share: Circular Elements Method: Automatic element selection was not initiated when selecting "Use previous part/pos." Fixed.
  • AI MAX Export: "Addl Text" and "Date" fields were not always getting set correctly. Fixed.
  • AI MAX Export2D: Memory used could increase dramatically in some cases when processing a very large (>5000) number of files. Fixed.
Changed Functionality:
  • AI MAX Export2D: HUGE performance improvement when processing a large number of 2D files.
  • AI MAX Export: In preview/status table, object currently being processed now shows "In Process" when exporting to help clarify current status.
  • AI MAX Share: Circular Elements Method: Automatic element selection is now sorted when source element (or destination element) is on a workplane.

A new version of the AI MAXTools suite is available! The latest build (20.00.00.0563, 2017-02-11) has the following improvements/fixes/changes (see below for download link):
 
New Features/Functions:
  • AI MAX Share: Circular Elements auto-selection enhancement: Conical face selection (including on "Additional Elements" can now be filtered using "Same Face" and "Same Plane" options
  • AI MAX Share: Circular Elements auto-selection enhancement: Circular edge selection when using "Additional Elements" now works when a part is selected as an additional element -- all matching circular edges on that part will be selected (and optionally filtered) -- no need to select each face.
  • AI Select Circular Elements: Selecting Additional Parts is now available for all types of selected source element(s). The automatic selection of elements will now search additional selected parts.
  • AI MAX Export2D: Now any additional Annotation font files that are located in the AI MAXTools installation directory will be loaded before AI MAX Export2D function is executed. If the variable ai::*ai-anno-font-dir* is set, that directory will be searched instead of the AI MAXTools directory.
Bug Fixes:
  • AI Info: Volume fields were not always updating correctly. Fixed.
  • AI MAX Export: attempting to activate modules from the Export Types option menu would still turn on the checkbox even if the activation failed. Fixed.
  • AI MAX Export2D: Typing in a new directory wouldn't always change the current directory. Fixed.
Changed Functionality:
  • AI MAX Share: Circular Elements method: Turning off both Same Face and Same Plane options will now automatically select ALL matching elements with the same axis direction (rather than no matching elements)
  • AI Select Circular Elements: Turning off both Same Face and Same Plane options will now automatically select ALL matching elements with the same axis direction (rather than no matching elements)
  • AI Select Circular Elements: Same Face and Same Plane options are now available for all selected element types
