Rhino Beam Tools Updated to v0.9.2.0

We released yesterday a major update for our plugin Rhino Beam Tools. Many bugs were fixed and improvement made, such as:

  • Values are not stored anymore in user texts, which is a lot safer. They still are duplicated in user texts though, so you will be able to read them easily.
  • When clicking on a node annotation, the node will be selected instead
  • Geometry import now accept every kind of curves, including Polylines and polycurves.
  • Geometry import now take in account the intersections, between themselves and existing Nodes/Beams. That was a great issue before, because when importing curves the intersection was checked afterward between the beams, causing the intersection point to be wrong.
  • The sets can be Edited/Renamed
  • A bug where annotations settings where reinitialized when opening a document has been fixed
  • We added the command “RBT_Duplicate” to duplicate a Node safely (not duplicating its label)
  •  Two identical beams (same nodes) will now be detected and one of them automatically removed. A beam with a missing node will become red instead of orange.
  •  License activation is only needed now for Export commands (Only export to Steel at the moment). Which means you can try the interface as much as necessary without even activating a license.

WARNING: Beams and nodes created with a previous release won’t be recognized anymore, because we changed the way data is stored
