HiCAD 2018 SP1 - now available

HiCAD 2018 - Service Pack 1 now available!

Service Pack 1 for HiCAD 2018 offers a wide range of new and enhanced functions. For instance, the capabilities of the new functions from the Major Release for exploded layouts, hole pattern creation or milling edge zones for Sheet Metal parts have been further increased. Other focuses were on the standardization of dialogue windows, improved visualisation, feature logging of other functions and further enhanced industry-specific functionalities.

Further highlights include the reduced polyhedron model for a significantly higher performance in model drawings with referenced part, the standardized dialogue for variables, the further improved visualisation options for processing planes or coating lines, or the enhanced industry functions. Examples of this are the new mitre function for mitre cuts between two sheets, the new Cross-bracing Design Variant, the possibility to derive single- or multiple-layer glazings from sketches, the automatic reuse of already inserted, bolted flange connections in Plant Engineering, or the installation of ALUCOBOND Tray panels SZ-20 with special shapes (e.g. parallelograms or trapezes).

Reduced polyhedron model:  When testing this, the drawing shown below has been taken into account with approx. 1700 parts. About 900 parts of it were same parts - internally referenced. In HICAD 2018 SP1, the file size has been reduced from 33 MB to 11 MB
