Check.jpg NEW: AUTOMATIC Calculation of Cut Length

VTube-STEP now automatically calculates the cut length during calculation of the centerline from solid model.

The math engine uses the current tube elongation percentage to reduce the cut length to account for elongation in the bends.

Check.jpg NEW: AUTOMATIC Thin Wall

If the wall thickness is zero after a centerline calculation from solid model, then VTube will now automatically insert a value of 0.001" (or 0.0254mm) into the part setup. This cleans up the image by removing solid ends in the display.

Check.jpg Enhanced: Project Batch Report Output

  • We added a second type of report per a customer spec.
  • The reports are now built to both comma delimted and tab delimited files.
  • The reports can be sent directly to Excel.

Load the batch reporter in the Report menu of either STEP mode of LASER mode:

This is a sample report file:

If the batch reporter finds files with 0 or negative length straights, then it will issue a WARNING at the end of the report log and create a second report file containing a list of all the project files with these lengths:
