6 Name Change PRODUCT NAME KeyCreator 2011 V10.0.0

7 64-Bit version & OS Performance Windows 64 bit platforms XP SP2/Server 2003 Vista/Server 2008 Windows 7/Server 2008 R2 Native 64 bit version increases memory usage due to larger pointer sizes, but allows much greater overall memory usage. One common new license between 32 bit & 64 bit Windows 32 bit platforms XP SP3/Server 2003 Vista/Server 2008 Windows 7

8 64-Bit version & OS (Cont d) Performance Windows Vista/7 Aero Compatibility Replaced active viewport highlighting Now uses HOOPS-based method. Highlighting uses cursor color from File- Properties, same as axis gnomon text. Microsoft Office If using Office it must be the 64 bit version of Microsoft Office to use KeyCreator bit version! Read IMPORTANT NOTICES

9 64-Bit Advantage Performance KC will use as much memory as is available Read more data & larger files More memory allocation is not the same as speed improvement But using more memory may improve performance in some cases Requires more system memory management from computer/os

10 ACIS Performance Performance New ACIS version R21 Preset faceting & tolerances Improved Spline surface faceting New Faceting slider bar Preset by ACIS Coarse Medium coarse Medium fine Fine Adjusts more options than old method (still available) Gives better results with less memory usage

11 ACIS Performance Performance Old Faceting Method Still available Recommendion from Spatial Old 15 degrees ~ New 30 degrees» May range depending on geometry Affects spline faces more than analytic faces Read Default Changes & Important Notices regarding faceting!

12 ACIS Performance -(Cont d.) Faceting KC9 vs. KC2011 Performance KC2011 Medium Coarse KC º Normal Deviation KC9 15º Normal Deviation KC º Normal Deviation KC9 30º Normal Deviation

13 ACIS Performance -(Cont d.) Faceting KC9 vs. KC2011 Performance KC2011 Medium Coarse KC9 15º Normal Deviation KC º Normal Deviation

14 ACIS Performance - (Cont d.) Performance Draws edges using facet data. Performance benefits Don t need to refacet the edges. Don t need to find the shell edges for smooth/blanked edge hiding, which is very expensive. Display quality Don t see duplicate edges when highlighting No stitching in HLR from facet/edge mismatch.

15 Performance HOOPS Performance New Hoops version 18.1 Improved display performance View frustum culling Target minimum of 30 frames per second Dependent on graphic card & amount /type of geometry data Faster highlighting New display performance options Allows user more control depending on data size

16 Performance HOOPS Performance - (Cont d.) What is View Frustum Culling? Basically only redrawing what is visible within the view & ignoring what is outside the view Benefits: Faster & smoother performance when working upclose on a complex models (many faces) Pre-KC2011 Display/View Entities/Faces redrawn KC2011

17 Performance HOOPS Performance - (Cont d.) Graphics Test Function TechSoft internal graphic card test criteria independent of Keycreator Runs test based on only 2 Driver Types settings: Hardware OpenGL Direct3D Validates that the graphics card meets a minimum level of functionality to be considered supported Provides performance data that Tech Support (TS) can evaluate

18 HOOPS Performance - (Cont d.) Performance Fixed Frame Rate Mode/Performance Fixed frame rate option will produce at least the given number of frames per second in nonhidden-line rendering modes Draws larger entities first (based on pixel size) Draws smaller entities last Stops after a given time, continues on next draw

19 HOOPS Performance - (Cont d.) Performance Quick Hidden line mode (Moved to options) Available with Hardware OpenGL only Uses graphic hardware May not be accurate enough on complex sculpted shapes

20 HOOPS Performance - (Cont d.) Quick Move for Highlighting New display graphics card option Performance

21 Performance Summary Users should expect to see: Faster highlighting Faster entity selection Performance Summary Resulting in faster operations when dealing with many multiple selections Improved dynamic pan & zoom when working in zoomed up areas of models Better handling of large amounts of data & files with 64 bit version

101 Tips & Tricks Mating Transform If you prefer to not use the mating function with the mating constraints Turn off the associate option in Tools>Options>Transform If you prefer to not have automatic updating of mating constraints Turn off the automatic update option in Tools>Options>Transform

102 Tips & Tricks Repeated Importing of Same Assembly Files If you are constantly opening/processing the same foreign assembly file, try using Tools>Options>Misc Caching Will process once & cache the resulting.ckd s Allows reusing cached files» Can set limits» Age of file» Size of file» Number of files Next time you reprocess this foreign file it will ask if you wish to use cached files

103 Important Notices Opening pre-kc9.0 versions of.ckd files Opening a.ckd file from pre-kc9.0 versions will result in a slower initial file load. Once the file has been saved in v9.0.0 or later, load times will then return to normal for that file. We have discovered that at times the internal representations of solids can get out of sync with each other. To ensure that all internal representations match, loading a file that was last saved in a version before v9.0.0 will cause an automatic "Rebuild Wires" operation on all of the solids in the file. This is the reason for a slower initial file load. Once the file has been saved in v9.0.0 or later, this function will no longer run automatically on file load. You will see normal or faster loading times. After the formatting, the solids are now in the correct representations & positions. Its possible that some solids may have shifted because of resyncing Please check file for changes in model & layout! If the initial loading of the files is considered a critical time loss for you or you have a large number files that need converting all at once, please contact our Tech Support group for assistance.

104 Important Notices All pre-kc2011 files will be automatically refaceted when opened 1 st time opening may take a bit longer After saving, opening is faster See DEFAULT CHANGES > Faceting section See TIPS & TRICKS > How to open over-faceted files Files that will not open! If the initial loading of the files is considered a critical time loss for you or you have a large number files that need converting all at once, please contact our Tech Support group for assistance.

105 Important Notices If using Microsoft Office Must be 64 bit version of Microsoft Office installed to use KeyCreator bit version! During install, KeyCreator bit needs to install a MS Office component (Database engine) Microsoft does not allow a mix of 32 bit(86) & 64 bit Office components Symptoms: Errors when trying to use Fasteners, Features, Structural shapes, etc. that utilize a database! If you need further explanation or assistance, please contact our Tech Support group.
