Service Pack 1 is now ready for download. To access the service pack, go to the Help menu from within the application and select Current Version. This will launch the browser and allow you to download build Shark FX 9 (build 1161) for Mac or Window.

This update has over 100 issues addressed. A list of changes is provided below.

Shark FX 9 Change Log

Build 1162 Change Log
• Fixed an issue modifying hatch values from the Inspector
• Fixed an issue related to regaining hatches in draw views
• Fixed an issue related to selecting curves within draw views

Build 1161 Change Log
• Corrected a crash exporting to Adobe Illustrator while in hidden line mode
• Hatches were not displayed correctly
• Certain Filled polygons were not displayed correctly in 3D
• Polygons were not photo-rendered with user defined color

Build 1160 Change Log
• Updated Convert To Mesh dialog for the Explode Mesh option. Explode Mesh creates a mesh entity for each face which was the default for previous versions. Explode Mesh off creates a single mesh entity that has welded vertices and properly aligned facet normals, much more suitable and friendly for 3D Printing. No need to use a follow up Join or Surface Flip command on a converted solid. Explode Mesh is now off by default.

• Updated the triangle /ray facet algorithm which now corrects issues for auto align facet normals of 3D Print structures
• When you close the 3D Print slice dialog box, the screen is now updated without having to pick a new option.
• The Number of slices for 3D Printing is now set by the layer resolution extracted from the current printer definition
• The 3D Printing Slice thickness shows more decimal places and defaults to the current Printer layer resolution.
• Corrected a tolerance issue when creating pipe solids.

• Correction for group selection after leaving the arrow tool
• Corrected issue using data entry values for non uniform scaling.
• Insert Door tool was incorrectly checking against default width of a Window.

• Corrected a tolerance issue for creating pipe solids.

Build 1158 Change Log
• Remove Spline Point now allows any number of points to be removed with one selection.
• Reset layers if the file read was corrupted.
• Detail circle color is now defined by foreground color, not last color used
• When creating previews, no longer use PHL for performance boost
• Corrected small memory leak when creating file previews

Build 1157 Change Log
• Corrected issue where hatches displayed stray lines before they were regenerated
• Corrected issue moving groups due to improper link
• Shift Move Layer now correctly shows the moving layer
• Automatically repair groups with missing data only flags
• Corrected a memory leak with subdivision meshes
• Corrected a memory leak between subdivisions meshes and resulting surface/solids
• Assign the increment values for OBJ read meshes based on file contents, makes faster reads on Windows
• Faster merge vertices algorithm for STL & OBJ reads
• Display normal correction for polygons > 4
• Meshes and Mesh Edges draw much faster with new OpenGL algorithm
• Implemented auto profile repair to better support lower quality Windows fonts
• Updated imprint tool to directly support text entities
• Corrected issue where error dialog was alway displayed with imprint tool
• VRML export now supports exporting out Layer Color overrides for the objects.

Change Log 1156
• Memory clean up for large files with meshes (>1Million vertices & facets)
• Updated imprint tool to support text entities
• Auto profile repair added to text to curves to support lower quality Windows fonts
• Corrected issue where error dialog was alway displayed on imprint.
• VRML export now supports exporting out Layer Color overrides for the objects.
• If you convert box text and it fails, text is no longer deleted.
• Numerous updates for using data entry when moving and rotating faces with the gripper
• Added a data entry angle value for rotated face feature from gripper
• Rotated face feature now shows correct image in feature tree
• Corrected a file read crash when a custom shader had unicode chars >255
• Some user defined materials where not being set in the entity edit dialog box.
• Corrected infinite loop regen for linked mirrors and model to sheet
