Update History

May 18, 2024 Version 13.11

May 6, 2024 Version 13.00
Improvement of 1D placement algorithm
  • Improved partial local solution when there are multiple Stocks panels.
  • Improved processing speed when "Merge parts panels of the same size" is unchecked.
  • Resolved a small memory leak.
Improvement of 2D placement algorithm
  • Due to the algorithm change, the setting item was changed to "Search Level," which is common to the 1D algorithm.
  • Even with the "Search Level=0" setting, the placement efficiency is equivalent to that of the rightmost setting in the "Placement Speed and Number of Searches" of the previous version. When "Search Level" is increased, it improves the yield of the type that was difficult to achieve in the previous version.
  • Even if the yield itself does not change from the previous version, a diagram that reduces the number of cutting processes within the range that does not reduce the yield is now output.
Others
  • The terminology for the "convergence judgment" setting has been changed to "search level.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented files from being opened properly depending on the region setting.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented version checking for some region settings.
  • The region setting is now saved in the file and converted if the file is read in a different region.
  • The processing time per trial in 2D has increased, so the function to display the number of trials during calculation is now also available for less than 1.
  • Adjusted the number of calculation threads to improve overall processing speed.
  • Improved a bug that prevented input of characters that use the Shift key at the beginning of the comment field without first pressing the [F2] key.
  • Revived the ability to update print settings from file.
  • Fixed a problem in which the diagram was not cleared after changing Parts panel or Stocks panel data.
  • Fixed a bug that the tab color was not the theme color when the theme was set to other than standard since Ver. 12.81.
  • Fixed a bug that some icons were available during optimization.
