One of the main features new to DriveWorks 15 is the work that we have done on Configurable 3D models for use in the applications and on the web.
Improvements include, but are not limited to:
This means that models can be inserted in to your Drive3D document without being in the master SOLIDWORKS file before exporting to Drive3D.
Much of the underlying math has been updated to allow these enhancements and a new entity structure has been added. This provides the ability to add and remove entities such as lights and textures to any model and/or model replacement.
Both breaking changes have been implemented to minimise disruption or the requirement to change rules, however the following could still occur.
As ever please make sure you back up your DriveWorks data before upgrading to DriveWorks 15.
We also strongly recommend testing your DriveWorks 15 projects in a sandbox environment before rolling out to production.
Remember we issue NEW license codes for every new release. We do this to make it easier for you to thoroughly test before deploying in to your production environment.
New License codes are sent to your DriveWorks Reseller when each new version is released.
