KISSsoft - 3D geometry (STEP interface)

SP1 IMPROVEMENT: Possible to set coordinate system when saving a 3D model of bevel gear
The user can set the coordinate system according to Klingelnberg or Gleason machine type when saving a 3D model of bevel gear.
The setting can be selected from the module specific settings.

KISSsoft - CAD interface

SP1 Solid Edge: Interface to Solid Edge ST10
Interface to Solid Edge ST10 is implemented.

SP1 Creo 3: Small gears with US customary units
Small gears with US customary units (inches) can't be generated in Creo 3.
We added an extra dll for small gears with US customary units to the ProEngineer-folder.
If you have small gears with US customary units please do this:
- rename the file 'i_kiss_ext_e.dll' to 'i_kiss_ext_e_origin.dll'
- rename the file 'i_kiss_ext_e_smallGears.dll' to 'i_kiss_ext_e.dll'

KISSsoft - Gear calculation

SP1 Unable to match gears on shaft in case of bevel contact analysis
In case of bevel gear contact analysis with shafts, the calculation was not able to find the matching gear on the shaft. This is fixed.

SP1 Error while loading old planetary stage calculation files
Axis misalignment was not correct read in while loading a planetary stage calculation file from an older version. This is fixed.

SP1 Contact analysis for internal gears with asymmetric modifications
If asymmetric modifications were applied to the internal gear, they were not considered correctly in the contact analysis (left and right flank were swapped). The issue is fixed.

SP1 Error in dialog of tip diameter allowance conversion
The dialog of tip diameter allowance conversion (tab 'Tolerances') had an error when the dialog converted the proposed values.

SP1 Swapped stiffness weakening in contact analysis for helical gears
The stiffness weakening of the border slice for gear 1 and 2, in case of right helix angle, was swapped in contact analysis. This is fixed now.

SP1 Profile modifications with grinding worms/dressing wheel
If pre-manufacturing was set only on gear 2 (and not on gear 1), then the displayed results in the convert modifications window were not correct. Also when transferring the calculated modifications with the grinding worm to the tab Modifications, the displayed corrections were always linear tip relief (and never curved tip relief, even if the dressing wheel had curved tip relief applied). This is now fixed.

SP1 IMPROVEMENT: Convert tooth form from curves to points
Additional option Use point (not curves) for the definition of tooth form was added to the user specific settings. The user now has the possibility to convert tooth form to points in tooth form calculation.

SP1 Wear calculation according to Pech - plastic/plastic combination
Grease temperature and wear according to Pech for crossed helical gears were not calculated correctly for plastic/plastic combinations. This is fixed.

SP1 Addendum angle gear 2 for bevel gear
Any value entered for the addendum angle gear 2 for bevel gears was set back by the calculation.

SP1 Tip rounding in transverse section
In some special cases (when profile modifications were applied), tip rounding was not applied correctly, This is now fixed.

SP1 Minimum tip clearance calculation in Tab operating backlash
Minimum tip clearance calculation in Tab operating backlash did not consider runout of the gears (if activated). This is now fixed.

SP1 IMPROVEMENT: Mass of worn out material calculated in the CA
Mass of worn out material is calculated and displayed in the CA results.

SP1 FEM root stress calculation using quadratic spline for the tooth form
Artificial stress concentrations were present when the polygon approximation was used for the tooth form extraction used in the FEM root stress calculation. This is corrected by always using locally a quadratic spline approximation of the tooth form.

SP1 Z080: Material list for worm gear wasn't set correctly
The material list for worm gear wasn't set correctly.

SP1 Generating IGES file for FEM analysis for asymmetrical tooth form
In some special cases, tooth form for FEM analysis could not be generated for tooth forms with asymmetrical modifications applied. This is now fixed.

SP1 Opening old file with generation grinding (flank only)
Old files having generation grinding (flank only) set were not converted correctly to the 2017 version. This is now fixed.

SP1 Error in setting correct working flank when usind a load spectrum with contact analysis or face load factor calculation
When calculating face load factor or contact analysis, with load spectrum, the working flank was set wrong in case, that the load spectrum had bins with negative torquefactors. This is fixed.

SP1 Misalignment of sun in contact analysis was ignored in seldom cases
In cases where only the sun, of a planetary system, has a proportional axis misalignment defined, the misalignment was ignored in contact analysis. This is fixed now.

SP1 Imported gear did not get the tooth thickness allowances
The import function for a single gear into an other gear calculations did not transmit the tooth thickness allowances.

SP1 Torque layout with duty cycles
Torque layout with duty cycles, when KHb was calculated according ISO6336 annex E, was not working properly.

KISSsoft - General

SP1 Position of colored 2D surface fixed
Colored surfaces in 2D graphics where not positioned correctly in all cases. The wrong behaviour occured in the shaft calculation graphic 'Stress distrubution on raceway'.

SP1 Text orientation of vertical diagram markers
The text orientation of vertical markers in 2D diagrams was horizontal. Therefore the texts overlapped when serveral markers where set next to each other. The text orientation is now changed to vertical.

SP1 Report in gear calculation damaged in demo version
Due to the demo message in the report, the cylindrical gear reports are were the first column of the weibull parameter table.

SP1 Data base: a tapered roller bearing had wrong value
Tapered roller bearing "SKF_JM511946/910/Q" had the wrong C0 value.

SP1 Info graphics fit the window automatically
The info graphics fit the info window and zoom via mouse wheel is added.

SP1 Unit setting was not restored
In some cases the user specific unit setting was not restored when starting the software again.

SP1 3D graphic windows docking error
3D graphic windows did show contents when the window was floating but did not when the window was docked to the main window.

KISSsoft - Graphics

SP1 Change in ISO 6336-1, Annex E graphic
Gap and line load curves, when the contact is on the right flank, are represented now as a curves below the 0.0-line in the respective ISO 6336-1, Annex E graphic. Curves, when the contact is on the left flank, are always above the 0.0-line (in the +area).
This is added, so that now it is easy to see, if left or right flank is making contact.

KISSsoft - Shaft calculation

SP1 Correct line load distribution for gear body deformation, inside flank line modification
The correct line load distribution along the face width in now taken into account for the calculation of the gear body deformation (flank line modification calculation). This applies to the case where an FE stiffness matrix is defined for the gear body.

SP1 Deleting shafts in shaft editor
Error in shaft editor is fixed: The views were not fully updated when deleting a shaft.

SP1 Error in stress ratio values in Tab 'Strength'
The stress ratio values and the load factors (static/endurance) in tab 'Strength' were mixed up.

SP1 Error when deleting elements in the shaft editor solved
The element tree was not always updated corretly when deleting elements.

SP1 Bevel gear in 3D viewer was not shown
The bevel gear was not shown in 3D model viewer in the shaft calculation and in the kSysGL3DViewer in KISSsys.
Now the problem is fixed now.

SP1 Handling element selection and result window improved
The selected element stays selected when running the calculation, but the result window is coming to front anyway.

KISSsoft - Shaft-hub-connections

SP1 Input fields added to M02C
Missing input fields for data of a spline added to the spline (strength) calculation and number of decimal places in table fixed.

KISSsys - General

SP1 Planetary modeled with gear pairs in KISSsys
When modeling a planetary stage as a system of gear pairs, in the gear calculation, all speed related variables (speed, driving/driven, clockwise/counterclockwise) have to be entered with the relative values and not the absolute ones. The user sees then the local values in KISSsoft, different from the global ones in KISSsys. In order to run the contact analysis, all these changes are also applied in the temporary generated shaft files from KISSsys. But the shaft files from the model remain unchanged.

SP1 Database: Kl├╝bersytnth GEM 4 synthetic oil based on polyalphaolefin
The type of the oils Kl├╝bersynth GEM 4 was corrected to synthetic oil based on polyalphaolefin.
