VTube Update History 4.3 - April 2024

Version 4.3 Build 1547, April 26, 2024

1 - VTube now has three new text buttons on the top of the viewports: Hidden Lines, Transparency, and Wireframe.

These buttons toggle the viewing modes of the shapes on the screen.

2 - An OD calculation issue is repaired for the Collected Features parametric build.

Version 4.3 Build 1545, April 25, 2024

The Assembly Control window has a new "Toggle" column that allows users to quickly toggle all switches on or off for any tube in the assembly.

Version 4.3 Build 1544, April 25, 2024

VTube-LASER is updated to accept messages from the Metronor DUO camera systems.

Metronor has confirmed that this update works with the Duo. (It already worked with the SOLO camera systems.)

Version 4.3 Build 1543, April 23, 2024

1 - We fixed Dim Plus and Dim Minus linear tolerance row values.

2 - We fixed IJK output for the Measured Circle value in the General Metrics grid. It was converted as a linear distance value when manually entered.  IJK values are not linear distance values.

Version 4.3 Build 1541 - April 19, 2024

1 - We fixed an issue for VTube-STEP cylinder calculations when using "collection" methods.

The issue rarely occurred when using tube straight collections to calculate tube centerlines.  The math engine now overcomes this issue automatically.

2 -The help videos are no longer automatically embedded in every VTube installation.

They can be downloaded and installed at VTube installation if the user chooses. This saves significant build, upload, download, and installation time.

Version 4.3 Build 1540 - April 17, 2024

1 - Now, you can measure OUTER and INNER diameter cylinders with proper probe compensation.

2 - We fixed the Bender Setup LRA Correction Percentage controls.

3 - We improved the scanner / probe toggle user interface.

4 - Now, the Report window is made invisible when using a dialog to save a report to a PDF file.

Version 4.3 Build 1538 - April 15, 2024

Space Object linear dimensions can now be created between multiple tube centerlines in an assembly.

Version 4.3 Build 1537 - April 10, 2024

1 - The Chiyoda EX correction process is enhanced so that the CHS file that was recalled becomes the template file used to build the corrected CHS file.

Version 4.3 Build 1536 - April 9, 2024

1 - Chiyoda EX bender correction communications are now part of the VTube-LASER Bender Setup window.

2 - The Chiyoda EX file protocol is included in the Benderlink setup grid to allow for Chiyoda EX bender corrections.

Version 4.3 Build 1532 - April 4, 2024

1 - The viewport image files are now always refreshed when building reports.

2 - The option to turn off the viewport image refresh has been removed from the System Option Report menu.

Version 4.3 Build 1526 - April 4, 2024

1 - The STL model import is added in VTube-LASER Point Cloud Control.

This allows for importing scanned data from any device that scans surfaces and creates STL files. The imported data is converted to a point cloud which can then be used to create a MEASURED tube for comparison to a MASTER tube, which allows for tube shape qualification and bender correction.

Version 4.3 build 1522 - April 2, 2024

1 - A New Transform Feature Can Rotate Around Tube Around Any Tube Straight

2 - We fixed a VTube-STEP issue where the image would clear after displaying a report.
