Updates for Tunnel

Version 18.20.FP4a 64 bit
  • Some geology registrations were invisible in the Geology registration dialog for FP4. Among the invisible registrations were text, foliation, rock type areas, cracks, weakness zones narrower than 1 meter and point- and area leakages. These registrations were not drawn in AutoCAD either. This is now corrected.

Note: No data is lost. The registration only turned invisible.

Updates in Novapoint Virtual Map 6.5.5

Version 6.5.5 (Released April 2013)

New features:

  • Remember viewpoint column width and order
  • Solids tessellation user control for layers
  • Long material names supported
    • Note for users:
      • Don't use older versions to edit configurations that contain longer than 15 letter material names. Older versions will cut material names to 15 letter which may make config unusable or cause wrong materials to appear into model.
