1- Make a cube
2- Be sure that your track ball window is open
3- Select the cube and go to the gripper window
4- Change attach mode (user positioned)
5- Drag the mouse (without click) over the track ball
6- Your model will move around without any click

Yeah gripper is broken in 1649. I've gone back to 1645.

I sent a build out to JF tonight to see if the issue is now corrected. If he confirms the correction, we will roll out a new WIP to everyone.

It actually impacts more than just the gripper, but very noticeable with the combination of steps JF noted.

Thanks Tim,

First - From rapid test the Gripper looks to work normally ...But Reset Axis have no effect !!

Second - I don't like to see the shape of my Iso Line (attached pictures) (build 1650 and was in previous build)

Third - I did a 3D printing and for the first time my 3D print have a lot of facets and the print failed !!

Excellent.

Reset Axis only resets the axis. It does not change the origin.


>>Second - I don't like to see the shape of my Iso Line (attached pictures)

I don't recall making changes to iso lines for any of the v14 builds.

>> I did a 3D printing and for the first time my 3D print have a lot of facets and the print failed !!

Same for this item, I don't recall changes to faceting for any of the v14 builds.

IsoLine and facet creation are handled by ACIS which has been the same version for v14. Might be something related to the part.


The 1650 from 1649 build changes were limited to a fixing a mouse button down value getting stuck, and some pen color/material changes per face and body.

Thanks so much for quickly testing! I'm going to start preparing a 1651 by running some regression tests tonight.

Perfect Tim !

But tell me, is it normal to have this iso line shape ?? It isn't Kosher !!

Oh! It's a facetted silhouette edge.

It's somewhat expensive to calculate a precise NURB silhouette. So I calculate a facetted poly line for view changes.

But I thought it should discard a silhouette associated with a different view orientation.

Will check...

How shall I use the gripper like in the attached screenshot?

Please, please, please make the gripper stay the same size, regardless of zoom, like in ALL other CAD-Software on this planet.

Thanks Tim, I understood, this irregular iso line isn't an anomalie... perfect!
Last week I had a problem with the Push / Pull Tool. This morning I cannot to reproduce! Bizarre,(not a matter) the Distance Statut Window doesn't accept the 0 value !!
