IGD v.3.8.80 has been released on September 27th, 2022, and it is available to download now. Go to Help -> Check for updates… to update your current installed version of IGD. This new version includes the following features and/or enhancements:

  • Implemented a new FE model for distortion analysis due to heat treatment in spur gears with DANTE. See https://dante-solutions.com/ for more information on heat treatment simulation.
  • Fixed issue when updating the face width of the pinion and wheel from the Smart design window of spur and helical gears.
  • Improved the alignment of the TCA coordinate system in helical gears to avoid some issues with TCA in some special cases of design.
  • Added the possibility to build finite element models with the whole pinion and a wheel with the same number of teeth of the pinion plus one.
  • Various general “under the hood” improvements.
