A new version of the AI MAXTools suite is available! The latest build (20.00.00.0602, 2018-03-23) has the following improvements/fixes/changes (see below for download link):
 
New Features/Functions:

Bug Fixes:
  • AI Move: Reserving and unlocking didn't always work as expected. Fixed.

Changed Functionality:
  • AI Move: Dramatic improvement in speed of "smart selecting" objects (i.e. the simplest selection when multiple parts, faces, assemblies have been box-selected).
  • AI Move: Added "Redo Blends" option to increase user control

Talk to us! / Re: Adding Surface Area Column for Bill of Materials (BOM)
« Last post by admin on March 23, 2018, 10:39:53 AM »
I'm a user of the ai MAXTool "Bill of Materials" tool and was wondering if you could possibly add a column option that outputs the surface area of each part. It would be much appreciated.
Hi Connor,


Thanks for the push -- we've had this on the list for a while, but didn't do anything with it. However, thanks to your suggestion, we've done the work and should have something for you to test later today! (plus, we added an "Area" field to the AI Info tool so you can see area at a glance for individual objects).


I'll check back with you later today via PM or email with instructions for how to download and test it.  :)

If Model Manager is not active, or if the locked object has not been saved in Model Manager,  the "Reserve" option will not be displayed.

New Features/Functions:
  • New Function: AI Move: Allows moving Assemblies, Parts, Faces, Workplanes and/or 2D geometry (or any combination) all in the same operation.

  • AI Bisect now includes rubberline feedback to improve visualization
  • AI MAX Export2D now will export DXF and other non-PDF formats even if the drawing contains an embedded picture
Bug Fixes:
  • AI MAX Export2D: Multi-sheet drawings would not always be converted to PDF correctly. Fixed.
