A new version of the AI MAXTools suite is available! The latest build (19.50.00.0498, 2015-10-20) has the following improvements/fixes/changes (see below for download link):
 
New Features/Functions:
  • AI MAX Export: Added a sort when determining what name to use for each  unique object to help improve consistency in naming the files. This is of particular benefit when using zip files. If some objects are renamed or deleted between exports, there may still be issues, but this is a significant improvement.
Bug Fixes:
  • In some situations, the toolbox buttons were being labeled in German, even when loading in English -- definitely not the intended behavior!  Fixed.
Changed Functionality:
  • Several internal changes for improvements when working with languages other than English.

New Features/Functions:
  • AI MAX Share: UI simplified somewhat. All options are still available, but the less-commonly used options are now on the options menu. Most of the current changes affected the "Circular Elements" method, though some other methods got some changes as well.
  • AI MAX Workplane: Added an option to automatically create, when placing a workplane on a cylindrical or conical surface, an infinite construction line along the surface's axis when the workplane is first created or aligned. This option is found on the "Options" menu.
Bug Fixes:
  • AI Bill-of-Material Generator: PDF output had some extra characters in the footer. Fixed.
  • AI Bill-of-Material Generator: Didn't always work correctly when running without a license (i.e. Demo Mode). Fixed.
  • AI Bill-of-Material Generator: One of the "More Info" buttons had an outdated link. Fixed.
  • AI MAX Export2D: In some cases, clicking OK (Green checkmark or middle mouse button) would generate the files again, even if no options had changed. Fixed.
  • AI MAX Export2D: Exporting a second time could throw an error in some circumstances. Fixed.
  • General: In some rare situations, the user's customization directory was not being captured correctly, which prevented options files from being stored correctly. Fixed.
Changed Functionality:
  • AI MAX Export: Processing when skipping selected objects or files is now much faster.
  • Additional internal performance improvements.

A new version of the AI MAXTools suite is available! The latest build (19.50.00.0509, 2016-03-15) has the following improvements/fixes/changes (see below for download link):
 
New Features/Functions:
  • AI MAX Share: NEW! Now works with Part Library Screw Connections and Drill Features.
  • AI MAX Share: 2 Points in Direction method now has a "Count" option to specify the number of placements. Each additional placement will be the specified distance from the previous placement, creating equally-spaced parts and/or features.
  • AI MAX Share: 2 Points in Direction method now also allows a direction and distance to be specified without specifying a second point, essentially providing a "Direction and Distance" option.
  • AI MAX Share: 2 Points in Direction method: Entering a negative distance will now automatically reverse the projection direction and re-compute the destination point at the specified distance along the new direction.
Bug Fixes:
  • AI MAX ViewHQ options were not always being saved correctly. Fixed.
Changed Functionality:
  • AI MAX ViewHQ functions will now automatically try to activate a license rather than just displaying a "License Not Available" message. The message will still be displayed if the activation is unsuccessful.
  • AI MAX ViewHQ graphical browser now has numerical drawlist position indicators i.e "[2] " with the drawlist name, making it consistent with the AI MAX ViewHQ Browser bar.

A new version of the AI MAXTools suite is available! The latest build (19.50.00.0510, 2016-03-21) has the following improvements/fixes/changes (see below for download link):
 
New Features/Functions:
  • AI MAX Share: 2 Points in Direction method: Improvement in how negative distances are handled. Rather than reversing the projection direction, the destination point is simply computed in the negative direction. This also allows for better visual feedback when the "Count" option (number of instances) is greater than 1.
Bug Fixes:
  • AI MAX Workplane: Using the "On Axis" positioning option would move the workplane out away from the part in some cases. Fixed.
  • AI MAX Export: Options for object renaming were not being stored correctly. Fixed.
Changed Functionality:
  • AI MAX Share: 2 points in Direction method: Graphical feedback was not being properly shown when not directly specifying a destination point (i.e. specifying a direction and length instead). Feedback is now shown as expected.
  • AI MAX Export: Loading a profile wouldn't update all of the current settings in the dialog (though the settings would be correct when re-starting AI MAX Export). The settings in the dialog are now updated as expected.

New Features/Functions:
  • AI MAX Share: Now allows the user to duplicate both a Part Library Screw Connection Feature and a Part Library Drill Feature in the same operation.

  • AI Surface Points: Replacing a point would initially leave the label at the original location, even though the underlying data had been updated. Fixed.
  • AI Surface Points: Point renumbering didn't always give  the expected result when the new numbers could potentially overlap with existing numbers. Fixed.
Changed Functionality:
  • Minor UI changes to help with localization
  • AI MAX ViewHQ: Graphical browser for Objects with Drawlists is now automatically expanded to show the Objects and their Drawlists to further reduce mouse clicks.
  • AI MAX ViewHQ: Graphical browser for managing drawlists now has improved ability to Draw/Hide objects from other drawlists and redraw (i.e. Draw Only" the objects from the current Drawlist. These additional abilities are on the right-click context menu for the Drawlists.
  • AI MAX ViewHQ: Objects With Drawlists browser (visible when attaching or recalling Drawlists from objects) is now automatically hidden after object selection.
  • AI MAX ViewHQ: Attempting to recall Drawlists from an object with no Drawlist information attached will now display a message.

A new version of the AI MAXTools suite is available! The latest build (19.50.00.0534, 2016-06-07) has the following improvements/fixes/changes (see below for download link):
 
New Features/Functions:
  • AI MAX Share: Added option for startup status of "Duplicate Feature" functionality. Options are On/Off/Last, where "Last" uses the same status as the last time AI MAX Share was used. This option is found on the "Options" menu of AI MAX Share.
  • AI Intersection: Improved feedback by adding longer lines from the selected points to the intersection point.
  • AI Intersection: Added new feedback elements when lines do not intersect. The new elements show the lines to the closest point of approach, with a line connecting the two closest points.
  • AI Intersection: Added a new button to "Create 3D lines." This option does the following: when the user clicks "OK", a 3D polyline is created from the start point to the intersection point to the end point. If no intersection is found, a 3D polyline is created from the start point to the closest point of approach in the starting direction, then to the closest point of approach in the ending direction, and finally to the ending point. This part allows the user to visualize where the intersection is or would be. If an intersection is found, the Line part is colored cyan, if not, it is colored magenta. Note that this option is only available when AI Intersection is the only command running (meaning it is not being used to provide input to another command).
  • AI MAX Workplane: now works with preselected faces (single faces only)
  • AI MAX Workplane: Added a new option "Default on Axis." This option will automatically turn on the "On Axis" option when a cylindrical, conical, or toroidal face is selected, and the workplane will either be aligned or created on the axis of the selected face.
Bug Fixes:
  • AI MAX Share: When using the "Use 2 Reference Directions" option, the second reference and target directions would not always change the orientation of the shared object(s). Fixed.
  • AI Aattach Drawing to Variant didn't work if the new owner didn't have a viewset. Now the user is asked whether to copy the existing viewset from the original owner (just as the original function does).
  • AI MAXTools files wouldn't load properly if the default filing revision was set to something different from the version of Modeling. Strange bug. Fixed.
Changed Functionality:
  • No changes
