ArmCAD 2005 build 1727 released.

Fixed problem with incorrect drawing bars with overlapped segments in specification occured in previous build and couple improvements and fixes in specificator.

Oct 02, 2007

ArmCAD 2005 build 1725 released.

This version contains one correction in algorithm for generation of meshes cutting plan.

Jun 21, 2007

ArmCAD 2005 build 1722 released.

This version contains two fixes.

  • Corrected problem with hook orientation in specification.
  • Corrected problem with placing of specification report on drawing, when toolbars are not docked.

Apr 23, 2007

ArmCAD 2005 build 1720 released.

  • Porting to AutoCAD 2008 completed - ArmCAD 2005 now works with AutoCAD 2008. Beside that, this version contains several minor changes and fixes.
  • In import from ArmCAD 2000 format, series in plan view with inclined bars has changed bar distance.
  • In a bars specification placed on drawing, spiral bar was not entirely dimensioned.

Mar 20, 2007

ArmCAD 2005 build 1718 released.

This version contains several minor changes.

  • Increased maximal number of bar items in one item form - from 500 to 999.
  • Eliminated unnecessary resetting of specificator's labels position to default.
  • Making openings in a meshes now is visibility dependant - creates openings only in visible meshes.

Feb 05, 2007

ArmCAD 2005 build 1717 released.

This version contains several minor changes.

  • Correction of error in import of ArmCAD 2000 files into ArmCAD 2005 UE.
  • Correction of error which may occur in RTF export, very rarely.
  • Change in printing of symbol for cross section at source, concerning linetype.
  • Correction in stirrup angle in series in longitudinal section imported from Tower 5.

Dec 19, 2006

ArmCAD 2005 build 1716 released.

This version contains two minor changes. One is related with conversion of ArmCAD 2000 files - in some cases single-segmented straight bars with one hook are converted with altered hook position. Other change is related with scale-factor of specificator taken from constant series in plane view.

Oct 17, 2006

ArmCAD 2005 build 1715 released.

This version contains several changes and improvements:

  • In visibility dialog realised distinguishing for bar items with specificator placed.
  • Changes in conversion of ArmCAD 2000 files - automatic layer unlocking and conversion of specific variable series in plan view.

Jul 31, 2006

ArmCAD 2005 build 1714 released.

  • Porting to AutoCAD 2007 completed - ArmCAD 2005 now works with AutoCAD 2007! Since now, every version of program ArmCAD will have two editions - the standard edition compatible with AutoCAD 2004, 2005, 2006, and UNICODE EDITION compatible with AutoCAD 2007. Although those editions are two distinctive programs, they will have equal functionality.

This version (Build 1714) contains several minor changes and fixes.

Jul 04, 2006

ArmCAD 2005 build 1712 released.

New features:

  • Automated covering of arbitrary plate with series of bars.
  • Wizard for continuous beam.
  • Wizard for stair-case.
  • Wizard for retaining wall.
  • Wizard for reinforced walls.
  • Wizard for columns.
  • Standard bars for cruciform reinforced plate.
  • New entity - secondary reinforcement.
  • New command - change of user's coordinete system (UCS).

Beside that, there are numberous improvements:

  • Added multiplying coefficient in variable series - affecting specification and recapitulation.
  • Labeling style of meshes enriched with new feature - single-diagonal layout.
  • Added new columns in bar specification report - for single bar weight and for total weight for bar item.
  • Comments in labels are adjusted to be compatible with report's code page (instead of applications code page).
  • Implemented support for distinguishing anchoring length from overlapping length.
  • Wizard for strip footing - added two new shapes of lateral reinforcement.
  • etc..

Some changes and corrections have been implemented, the most imported are:

  • The specificator for series respects scale factor of series..
  • In multiple files reinforcement summary (recapitulation) avoided showing of reinforcement with zero length in total.
  • Fixed tolerance problem in cutting plan - in some specific situations made cutting plan not quite optimal.
  • In conversion of ArmCAD 2000 files - in some situations the mesh direction was not the same as in original.
  • etc..
