OCN-SIM FLEX v0.2 Released

Today, OCN-SIM FLEX received a major update.  I merged in almost 3 months of work from my pri­vate devel­op­ment repo and con­sid­ered the changes mean­ing­ful enough to take the leap from v0.1.3 to v0.2.

Major changes include:

  • Abil­i­ty to import raw data in addi­tion to gen­er­at­ing data based on rope sys­tem files
  • New load­case to illus­trate raw data import capa­bil­i­ty: rawData__rhombicNetting
  • New exam­ple load­case otterBoard
  • Lots of changes in inter­nal data struc­tures mak­ing life eas­i­er for pro­gram­mers (hope­ful­ly!)
  • Imple­ment­ed merge node fea­ture for RRF solvers (hard­cod­ed boolean paramter).
    Nodes in sec­ondary con­straints can now be merged to one node lead­ing to a numerically
    equal treat­ment of both pri­ma­ry and sec­ondary constraints.
  • Intro­duc­ing com­po­nent-wise PID force ele­ments. These can serve e.g. as a sub­sti­tute for
    the for­mer­ly used spring ele­ments to cou­ple rigid bod­ies to the rest of the sys­tem. Can be
    used as spring/damper com­bi­na­tions as well by set­ting inte­gral con­stant to zero.

I love Fridays.
