3D JUUMP ACE RELEASE NOTES
3D Juump Ace release notes provide information on the features and improvements in each release.
05/18/2021: VERSION 3.0
A lot of new things come along with this version of 3D juump Ace!
The most important evolution is certainly the possibility to load and display annotations saved in CAD files (first version only for Catia files).
But it also comes with many new functionalities and improvements, described below:
• Substantial redesign of the GUI Addition of a homepage at startup
• Moved the toolbox to a panel on the right
• Redesign of the view bar Added a filter “by type” of the product structure
•Added information on measures
•Added a flat rendering mode
•Additionally, this update also includes other minor bug fixes and improvements.
02/22/2021: VERSION 2.6
This version prepares the introduction of new functionalities coming with the future versions of 3d Juump Ace.
These features will no longer be compatible with the software rendering mode.
We have therefore disabled this rendering mode.
11/02/2020: VERSION 2.5
This new version brings notable improvements to the stability and the performance of the application thanks to a rewrite of part of its foundations.
It harmonizes the trial versions offered on the realfusio.com website and the Microsoft Store: a full trial version available for 14 days, for free, without commitment and without filling in bank details.
It also comes with many new functionalities and improvements, described below:
• Better handling of the visible, hidden and ghost spaces.
• Redesign of the search tool: the visibility state is now taken into account, the 3D view is synchronized with the search results, and you can now select all or some of the results. There is also a quick access to some useful functionalities.
• Added a filter to the product structure view to quickly find its elements Added a new CAD-oriented camera controller.
• Added a keyboard shortcut ‘W’ to make it easier to switch between the visible, hidden spaces.
• Added a « fit to selection » function (space key) to fit the zoom to the selected objects.
3D formats and metadata:
• New export formats : SAT.
• New import format : Rhino3D.
• Improved the Collada file format export.
• Installation of updates: when the user accepts to install the 3D Juump Ace updates automatically, the install file is now saved in the Windows default directory. This way, it’s possible to run the installer manually if a problem occurred during the first execution. This update also includes other minor bug fixes and improvements.
