Model 23.6 Release Notes
Coordination panel enhancement – The coordination panel has been updated and is now split into two stand-alone panels, Clash Manager, and Issue Manager. Read more
The Clash Manager lets you create flexible rules to detect geometric clashes between model objects. The Issue Manager lets you group and manage the geometric clashes and associated information through resolution. You can go to Clash manager and Issue manager by clicking the Logic menu.
Clash manager - The Clash Manager panel has been updated with additional features and has an updated user interface that lets you better define, manage, and organize clash rules. Read more
Rule Tab - In the Rules tab, the rules and groups now show side-by-side. In the Groups window, you can organize your rules in groups. You can use the quick action icons at the top of the panel to perform the most common rule and group clash functions. You can add rules and groups; run rules and groups; edit rules; export, import, and duplicate rules; and delete rules or groups.
Rules and rule groups are listed alphabetically.
When you create, select, or edit a rule, the Rule definition slide-out panel shows at the bottom of the pane. You can use the expand icon at the top right of the slide-out to show or hide the panel. The rule definition slide-out is no longer a modal. When creating or editing a rule, you are no longer locked in the rule definitions slide-out panel and unable to access the model project items. You can now interact with your model project when editing or creating a new rule.
Enhancements have been made to the Rule Definition slide-out panel. The tolerance settings have been updated to allow for 7-digit precision and a 4-digit scale. For example, you can enter numbers such as 333.3333.
Tolerance setting offerings will support Expand (expands geometry in all directions), Sphere (establishes a spherical clash tolerance), and Cylinder (establishes a cylindrical clash tolerance). Scale and Bounding Box are no longer supported.
You can add rules to groups by dragging them into the group folder, or by selecting the rule and clicking the Add to Group button.
