solidThinking Inspire

New Features

  • Improved Contacts: Search distances for contacts are now shown in terms of the minimum gap—the exact minimum distance between parts. The Auto Search Distance on the guide bar is now a global search threshold, while the search distance in the Contact table shows the minimum gap for each contact.
  • Multi-Feature Loads and Supports: You can now double-click or hold the Ctrl key to apply a single load to multiple points, edges, or faces. This new feature can be used when applying loads, pressures, torques, supports, and enforced displacements.
  • Move Faces Tool: The new Move Faces tool allows you to translate or rotate holes, pockets, and surface features.
  • Move Tool Alignment: The Move tool now allows you to align the tool to points, edges, and faces. You can also align a part or objects that are being moved.
  • Improvements to PolyNURBS: This release includes several additions and enhancements to PolyNURBS.
    – The PolyNURBS tools now show self-intersections.
    – The Wrap tool now creates flat PolyNURBS faces when wrapping to a planar geometry. This makes creation of fillets easier.
    – The Boolean tools are now accessible from the PolyNURBS secondary ribbon, and perform Boolean operations on the PolyNURBS cages.
    – The Sharpen tool now shows edge sharpness using a color legend.
  • Transient Load Extraction for Motion: Motion analysis results for a part can now be extracted for use in structural (FE) analysis and optimization. Peak loads from transient analysis will be automatically extracted from the motion simulation and used in analysis and optimization runs.
  • Motion Animation with FE Results: The Analysis Explorer now supports the motion animation playback toolbar, allowing you to visualize part structural (FE) analysis results simultaneously with movement of the motion model. Additionally, the motion load cases have now been consolidated into a single Combined Motion Load Case.
  • Time-Dependent Forces and Torques for Motion: You can now define time-dependent forces for actuators or torques for motors using the available built-in profile functions.


  • The Partition tool can now split solid faces into surfaces, and surfaces into new parts.
  • You can now define gravity in terms of its x, y, z components.
  • Added support for split draw directions for topography optimization.
  • Progress meters and stop buttons have been added to the find button on the guide bars for the Fasteners, Joints, and Contacts tools.
  • Displacement results in the Analysis Explorer can now be shown in terms of magnitude or X, Y, Z direction.
  • The Design Violations table and Compare Results table have been updated to include gauge optimization.
  • Added support for binary STL import and export.
  • Deactivated parts are now ignored when saving a file.
  • There are now two types of units: Model units (the unit system used for calculations) and Display units (the unit system used in the user interface). Both can be changed in the Preferences.
  • Several new unit systems have been added, including the (N, kg, mm, s) system for multi-body analysis.
  • A progress meter and stop button have been added to the Analyze Motion tool. The progress circle is also useful for when running motion analysis without simultaneous animation as it gives you an idea of how far along you are in the analysis.
  • You now have an option to perform motion analysis without animating simultaneously by selecting Animate: When Finished from the Run Motion Analysis window. This is useful when you have a high output rate, or long end time because it allows the solver to run as fast as possible.
  • Additional plots for motors (Angle, Speed, Angular Acceleration) and actuators (Travel, Velocity, Acceleration) are now available to provide more consistency when comparing results between differing types.
  • The global X, Y, Z locations of all connections on a part can now be exported to a CSV file.
  • Unit labels are now written in the .csv file as a separate row (beneath the column header) when using the Export Plot option.
  • The Export (to MDL) button in the Run Motion Analysis settings now writes out the motion model as a MotionView System entity and bushing rates are conveniently stored in a dataset.

Resolved Issues

  • Resolved an issue where the Mirror operation was not creating expected copies of rigid groups.
  • Disabled the Connect All button for joints until find operation has finished.
  • The Connected Parts option for actuators is now disabled if no connections exist.
  • Resolved an issue where a torsion spring’s implicit joint could not be set to Revolute.
  • Eliminated spikes in statics solution.
  • Corrected various problems in Analyze Part and Optimize Part dialogs for load extraction workflow.
  • Fixed a problem where the playback toolbar was including extra frames when computing range.
  • Motion entities are now honored during section cut.
