CHANGELOG SERVICE PACK 2
SP2 Checking inner blank height of face gear
Checking inner blank height of face gear is added for 3D geometry generation.
SP2 The 3D system model of bevel gear had wrong position when saved with H, J, V misalignment
The 3D system model of bevel gear had wrong position when saved with H, J, V misalignment.
This is fixed.
SP2 Helix angle modification is not correct in 3D model of bevel gear
When applying helix angle modification in the 3D model of bevel gear, we have to increase tooth thickness with factor XS to compensate tooth thickness reduction by the increased face width.
But the factor wass restored to the original value during tooth form calculation.
This is fixed.
SP2 SKF calculation: Bearings which give an error message during calculation
Bearings which give an error message (SKF calculation) during calculation - gives wrong results. If the calculation isn't running through we set the results in the result overview to '-'.
Example: Shafts 7 (truck transmissions).W10
SP2 Pressure angle of FAG thrust angular contact ball bearings
The pressure angle of FAG thrust angular contact ball bearings was 0° instead of 60° in the KISSsoft database.
SP2 Fix potential crash in kWebApi when logging is enabled
SP2 SolidEdge: Interface to SolidEdge 2020
Interface to SolidEdge 2020 implemented.
SP2 Improvement: Additional LTCA Results availiable via COM-Interface
COM-Interface provides now access to sliding velocity, normalized sliding velocity, specific sliding and sliding factor.
SP2 COM interface had problems to return large amount of data via GetVar
COM interface had problems returning large amount of results via GetVar. This was an issue in case of getting raw 3D root stress data over COM interface.
SP2 Calculating contact analysis step wise via COM was crashing
The calculation of contact analysis via the CalculateCAStep method of the COM-Interface was crashing in case of unequal facewidth of the involved gears. This is fixed.
SP2 Improvement: Double Planet Stage: Position of Planet-2
In the Sub-Window of the 4-gear stage, where double planet stage can be activated, an additional input is available: Now the position of Planet2, if on the right or on the left side of Planet1, can be defined. This affects the 2D and the 3D display.
SP2 Lifetime reset to the previous value
If you do a statical strength calculation, the lifetime is set to 0. If you now select a different calculation method, the lifetime is set to the previous set lifetime. This only applies for crossed helical gears.
SP2 Additional text displayed in the beveloid gear tool graphics
If the tool is not available, now an additional text is shown in the tool's graphics.
SP2 Active tip and root diameters in the meshing graphics
The setting for the form diameter calculation (module specific settings) is now considered when calculating/displaying the active tip and root diameters in the meshing graphics (no load condition).
SP2 Bevel Gears according AGMA2003, change to static calculation eliminated
In Bevel Gears according AGMA2003, an automatic change to static calculation happens, if load cycles were lower than 1000 cycles.
This is not wrong but may be confusing, and in AGMA2001 for cylindrical gears we do not do it.
This is now eliminated.
SP2 Improvement: Worm Gear according EDIN3996
Worm Gear according EDIN3996 is available, and last printing errors in the document were discussed, corrected and added in KISSsoft.
SP2 Problem in 'Generate cylindrical gear with the read-in pinion type cutter'
Center distance check was wrong when using the tooth form operation 'Generate cylindrical gear with the read-in pinion type cutter'. The problem only occurred for helical gears. This is now fixed.
SP2 Profile modification on the flank of asymmetric gears changed without warning
In some cases for asymmetric tooth forms, the flank of the profile modification was changed from left to right without warning. This occurred in cases when there was an error in the tooth form calculation. This is now fixed.
SP2 Tooth form for asymmetric gears could not be calculated
In some special cases, tooth for for asymmetric gears could not be calculated. This is fixed.
SP2 Worm gear, Start under load modified
The calculation of the torque to start under load is not part of the standard, but based on a note in the Niemann book.
The indication in Niemann applies for driving worm. We extrapolated the driving gear case until now, but this is not really approved in practice.
We eliminated now this case and indicate that most probably the set is self-blocking.
SP2 Damage accumulation curve for plastic gears
Damage accumulation curve is not shown any more for plastic materials in the SN graphics.
SP2 Final machining tool calculation - messages
Some messages were suppressed in the final machining tool calculation. The messages are suppressed only in case where there is no premanufacturing and no profile modifications defined.
SP2 Problem with tooth stiffness calculation in case of force close to root fillet and high pressure angle
In case of gears with high pressure angle and load close to the root fillet, the bending lever of the Weber/Banaschek based contact analysis is negative. In such a case the stiffness calculation was wrong because only hertzian, normal and shearing deflection should be considered. This is fixed.
SP2 Measurement data for worms
Radial single-ball measurement MrK (min and max value) for worms was not calculated. Additionally, measurement data (except MdK and MdR) for worms was not correct in case if the worm had more than 3 teeth. This is now fixed.
SP2 Nominal transmission ratio in rough sizing overwritten
User defined nominal transmission ratio was overwritten (with initial value) in the rough sizing when the calculation was performed. This is now fixed.
SP2 Module specific settings text
Gear pump text is removed from module specific settings to the diagram settings.
SP2 Root diameter tolerance for constructed involutes in the tooth form calculation
Setting of the root diameter tolerances for the tooth form was not considered correctly for constructed involute. This is now fixed.

WITHDRAWN: The planetary system contact analysis was crashing in case of unequal facewidth, this is fixed.
SP2 Export tooth form in coordinates through COM interface
A small bug was fixed that prevented the export of the tooth form as coordinates through COM interface.
SP2 Asymmetric gears calculation
If creating a "fresh" KISSsoft calculation file, and then converting it to asymmetric gear, the calculation was not working. This is now fixed.
SP2 Wrong VHJ approximation for bevel gears with shafts
WITHDRAWN: The bevel gear contact analysis with shafts was approximating wrongly the VHJ misalignment. This is fixed.
SP2 Tab modifications info text
Tab modifications info text for Helix angle modification (parallel - arc minute) and Pressure angle modification (parallel - arc minute) was not correct. This is now fixed.
SP2 Splines DIN 5482 example
Shaft-hub connection DIN 5482 40x36 e9_H10 example had the wrong profile shift in the DAT file. This is now fixed.
SP2 Improvement: Backlash calculation using Annex E
In the KHb Annex E report and in the Operating backlash report, now additionally center distance change and lead modification amounts are shown.
SP2 Contact Analysis Crash through COM
Fixed a segfault issue in the calculateJacobiMatrix mehod. Should no longer crash through COM provided the user runs CalculateCA first.
SP2 CalculateCAStep was overwriting center distance wrongly
CalculateCAStep was overwriting center distance wrongly. Center distance was always the center distance of a spur gear.
SP2 Fine sizing of Planetary stages
Added a Message, when Planetary stages with all elements (sun, carrier, ring) rotating are used, to better use the ratio definition with the 'z3/z1 option'.
SP2 Profile modification sizing was calculating same face load factor for different loads
The profile modification sizing dialog was calculating always the same face load factor for different load cases. This is fixed.
SP2 Runout in the operating backlash calculation
Own input of the runout error was not possible in the operating backlash calculation. This is fixed now.
SP2 Absolute speed value for bevel gears with carrier speed in the report
In the rpt template for bevel gears, the absolute speed calculated from the teeth ratio was using the virtual cylindrical number of teeth instead of the real bevel number of teeth. This is now fixed.
SP2 Woehler line display for planets
In some cases, the Woehler line for the planets was not drawn correctly. This is now fixed. It was purely a graphical error, so all the results are unchanged and correct.
SP2 Path of contact in the meshing graphics (for worms)
Path of contact in the meshing graphics was not drawn to the base diameter of the worm. This is now fixed.
SP2 Load cycle definition for racks
Load cycle definition for racks: The option to input load cycles per revolution is now hidden.
SP2 Fixed library integration issue which caused crashes in the contact analysis
An issue causing some contact analysis projects to crash, could be identified as related to the integration of Intel MKL's pardiso linear sparse matrix solver 'pardiso'. This was fixed for at least these cases.
SP2 Wrong face load factor due to inconsistent shaft calculation
In some cases the face load factor and its respective line load was calculated wrongly because the shaft calculation wasn't consistent after calculating the shaft bending line. This is fixed.
SP2 Estimation of collision between tool shaft and gear for the power skiving checks improved
In addition to checking for collisions between the tool shaft and gear when power skiving, the critical inner offset length, that an inner gear can be manufactured at, is calculated and displayed in the report.
SP2 Modification sizing for bevel gears
Headers in the modification sizing dialogue (tab results) for bevel gears was not shown correctly. This is now fixed.
SP2 Bending of the shaft and flank line modifications in the operating backlash calculation
Option 'Take into account the bending of the shaft and flank line corrections' was not considered correctly in the operating backlash calculation. This was limited to special cases, when load spectrum with more than 1 bin was defined, but 'Don't consider load spectrum' or 'Only take 1 bin into account' was selected in tab Rating. This is fixed now.
SP2 Grinding notch factor calculation for internal gears using form grinding
In special case, the grinding notch for the internal gear was not calculated correctly. This only appeared for the form grinded gear, using VDI 2737 for the form factors calculation. The issue is fixed now.
SP2 Alternating bending factor according ISO6336-3, annex B, for plastic materials
ISO6336-3, annex B, is only applicable to metals. For plastic materials the Mean stress ratio is approximated. We added now a warning message, if plastic gears are calculated.
SP2 Conical expansion of internal gears was considered wrongly
The face load factor calculation according to ISO 6336-1, Annex E, and the contact analysis was considering the conical expansion of the internal gear, due to load, wrongly. This is fixed.
SP2 SN curve graphic for rack-pinion calculation
SN curve graphics for rack-pinion calculation was not shown correctly. This is now fixed.
SP2 Y coordinate renamed in contact analysis graphics with vertical tooth
Y coordinate is renamed (from tooth height to Y position) in contact analysis graphics with vertical tooth.
SP2 UI text change
Zahnformfaktor Y changed to Geometriefaktor J for the AGMA calculation.
SP2 Generate cylindrical gear with read-in pinion type cutter
In some special cases, the generated cylindrical gear with a read-in pinion type cutter was not correct. This is now fixed.
SP2 Power skiving check result was sometimes not correctly listed in the fine sizing
Sometimes the result of a power skiving check in the gear fine sizing was listed as "not checked" instead of "not possible".
SP2 Single tooth axial section graphics
In some cases, the single tooth axial section was not displayed correctly for worms. This is now fixed.
SP2 Uploading load spectrum from file did not set the inconsistent flag
The inconsistent flag was not set when a load spectrum has been read in from a file in tab rating.
SP2 Wrong speed in results table of contact analysis in some cases
The speed documented in the results table of contact analysis was wrong in case of a speed < 1m/s. This is fixed.
SP2 User interface text for measurement over the balls
For inner gears, the text for measurement over balls is changed to measurement between balls.
SP2 Number of digits increased in tool export rps report
Number of digits increased in tool export rps report from 3 to 8.

Added tolerance field for tooth form calculation in the comment window for 2D and 3D geometry graphics.
SP2 INTERNAL: Bevel gear example 4 (differential) updated
INTERNAL: Bevel gear example 4 (differential) updated
SP2 Power Skiving Option
Power Skiving Option, if used with single gear or planetary or 4 gear, produced an internal error "Error: RechSt.Konfig <> 2".
This did not give wrong results, but was annoying. This is fixed.
SP2 3D model not correct
In some cases, when modification with value of 0 µm was applied, the 3D model was not correct. This is fixed.
SP2 GDE export for single gears
In the module single gears the GDE menu point for the export was missing.
SP2 Collison check for double planet stage in 4-gear chain
Collision check was not correct in all cases for double planet stage in 4-gear chain configuration. This is fixed now.
SP2 Translation issues in 3D viewer fixed
The 3D viewer was not fully translated on the fly (when language changes within a session).
SP2 Start layout of main window improved
The module tree was to wide when KISSsoft was started and the size of the main window was not restored from previous session.
SP2 C, C0 factors for 2 deep groove ball bearings were wrong in the database
C and C0 factors for 2 deep groove ball bearings were wrong in the database.
SP2 Improvement: commit behaviour of table data improved
Selection lists in tables do commit the new data right after it was selected. Before it was only commited when the list lost focus.
SP2 Offer Request Dialogs no longer flag calculation as inconsistent
Should no longer be possible for these dialogs to set the konsistent flag to false
SP2 Show angles in meshing graphics
Show angles in meshing graphics was not working correctly for racks. This is now fixed.
SP2 Scuffing and Micropitting tmp files only generated when needed
Scuffing and micropitting tmp files used for special reports were always
generated which slowed down the calculation. This was particularly
noticable during sizing.
SP2 Comparison results of kisssoft comparison tests were logged only when finished
- implemented continuous differences logging (i.e. file handles are constructed the first time used and the corresponding buffer is regularly flushed)
- added additional information to the test console log (e.g. if file is skipped, crashes or differences were found)
SP2 GEMS import/export
Outer whole depth and pitch diameter were not converted properly.
SP2 Help support did not work for flags in KUI
The help file for flags in KUI was not found.

The graphic of amplitude spectrum of excitation force was crashing in case if the excitation force was deactivated.
SP2 Bevel gears: Problems with V misalignment in contact pattern graphics
The contact pattern graphics was showing wrong results in case of V misalignment for contact analysis with bevel gears. This is fixed.
SP2 Missing graphics added to contact analysis report
Missing hertzian pressure and root stress graphic added to contact analysis report.
SP2 Load spectrum bin id was wrong in comment field of line load and gap graphic
Load spectrum bin id was wrong in comment field of line load and gap graphic. In case of bin 1, 0 was shown
SP2 Wrong maximum sliding velocity in comment field
The contact analysis graphic 'Kinematic' was showing the wrong maximum sliding velocity in case of unequal facewidt. This is fixed.
SP2 Improvement: Group modelling offers 2 types of adding cylindrical gear pair
The group modelling can now add cylindrical gear pairs in 2 ways: as a connection between 2 additionally added shafts and as a stand alone pair.
SP2 Improvement: Messages include their source information
It was not possible for the user to identify whether a message was coming from the system calculation or from one of the systems sub modules.
SP2 Improvement: Power flow table show the boundary name
The power flow table did only show the name of the boundary, now it shows the name of the coupling too.
SP2 Several click issues fixed in the sketcher
Double clicks and clicks on an axis item to begin, extend and finish new shafts did not work.
Merging shafts did not work if an item had already been placed on the first dot of the second shaft.
SP2 Improvement: keyboard short cuts for new dots activated
The user can press a key while he adds a new dot or connection to distinguish the item type.
Supported keys are B (bearing), R (carrier), S (switch), C (coupling), G (cylindrical gear), V (bevel gear).

The REXS import crashed in case existing elements should be overwritten.
SP2 Improvement: extended drag-and-drop in KISSdesign sketcher
- Possibility to connect planetary stages and gear chains directly in the sketcher by drag-and-drop added
- Merging shaft calculations in sketcher by drag-and-drop one axis on the other added
- Moving one shaft to another shaft calculation by drag-and-drop added
SP2 Improvement: visual feedback for drag-and-drop in trees
Dragging elements in the trees gives a visual feedback if dopping will be possible or not.
SP2 Fixed sketcher generation when modelling with the assistant
When selecting a planetary or creating a shifting transmission with the assistant, the sketcher is now properly generated.
SP2 Fixed merge methods when dropping shafts and shaft calculations onto one another
The user can now merge or make coaxial a shaft from a different group or within, drop shaft calculations or axis in the sketcher to make them coaxial.
SP2 Fixed sketcher bearing connection when modelling in the tree
When modelling in the tree, it is now allowed to create a bearing connection in the sketcher even if the dots are not vertically aligned
SP2 Fixed 3D GL model with more than one planet on the planet shaft
With staged planet shafts, the 3D model would transform the coordinates of the planet group several times to fit the parent carrier. This is now fixed.
SP2 Improved planet copies creation for more complex planetary models
For more complex planetary models (several meshing planets for example), the planet copy generation was not properly working. This is now fixed.
SP2 Set back possibility to create 3 or 4 gear chains with coaxial internal gear as last element
Due the exception handling, it was not possible to create 3 or 4 gear chains with coaxial internal gear as last element, this is now fixed.
SP2 The calculation sub modules
The calculation sub modules status was not saved in the file before, this is now fixed. It is also set on load.
SP2 When a shaft calculation is locked, a dot can be added at the end, but not inserted in the middle
When extending a locked shaft in the sketcher before, a dot would be created but not a cylinder behind, so no element could be added on the dot. Now the user can still extend the shaft at the end, but the dot is created directly on the next available grid point. And no dot can be inserted in the middle of a locked shaft.
SP2 When deleting a idler gear in the sketcher, the related gear calculations are also removed
When deleting a idler gear, its shaft or shaft calculation in the sketcher, the related gear calculations are now also removed. This is a special sketcher feature, when doing it in the tree, the transverse trees parents remain in the model.
SP2 WITHDRAWN - Improvement: Export a KISSdesign model to REXS
A export filter from a KISSdesign model to the REXS format (https://www.rexs.info/) has been implemented.
It currently works for cylindrical, bevel and hypoid gears. Also switchable concepts could be exported.
The export of planetary gearboxes is not yet implemented.
SP2 WITHDRAWN - Improvement: Import a REXS file to KISSdesign
A import filter from a gearbox defined in the REXS format (https://www.rexs.info/) into a KISSdesign model has been implemented.
It currently works for cylindrical, bevel and hypoid gears. Also switchable concepts could be imported.
The import for planetary gearboxes is not yet implemented.
SP2 Several drag and drop issues fixed in the views
Drag and drop in shaft and calculation view did not always use the correct items.
SP2 KISSdesign sketcher graphical issues
It was not possible to select connections if they were directly sitting over an axis.
SP2 Bug in the generation of some 3D geometries for FEM root stress calculation
In some cases the generated 3D model had some problems, leading to an error in the FEM calculation.
SP2 Generation of FEM root stress mesh crashes or not, depending on different profile shift values.
The FEM root stress could not be generated for some values of profile shift. This is now fixed.
SP2 Improved layout of the strength report
WITHDRAWN: Improved layout of the strength report.
The safeties were not in a column shown.
SP2 Additional text for feather key input fields
Additional text '(only documentation)' for feather key input fields feather key depth and feather key width added. Because these inputs have no influence on the strength or the bending calculation.
SP2 Bearing rating life for non-rotating but loaded bearings was infinity
For non-rotating but loaded bearings, the corresponding bearing rating life resulted in infinity. This was fixed and for such cases the bearing rating life is now set to 1e10 h.
SP2 Automatically setting critical cross sections sometimes caused misleading results
In some cases, the functionality to automatically set the critical cross sections of a shaft resulted in cross sections with wrong positions.
SP2 Missing low eigenfrequencies
In some very few shaft examples a low (normally below 10Hz) eigenfrequency was missing.
SP2 Drawing for angular contact thrust ball bearings in shaft editor
All angular contact thrust ball bearings in the KISSsoft database have a pressure angle at the order of 60°. The drawing did not reflect this fact.
SP2 Inner geometry for angular contact thrust ball bearings is shown in the shaft editor if available
Inner geometry for angular contact thrust ball bearings is shown in the shaft editor if available.
SP2 Symbols for axial support in shaft editor were too large
SP2 For larger groove width diameters, the notch factors for the shaft strength calculation are not considered correctly
In some models that had larger groove width diameters, parts of the surrounding shaft section were also considered as groove instead of just a smooth shaft section.
SP2 Prevent importing invalid input in the bevel gear position converter in the shaft editor
In the shaft editor, the bevel gear converter only produces reasonable
results if all values yk, hae and txo are defined. Thus it should not be
possible to run the calculation if they are not set properly. In
addition, the title should be changed to in order to indicated, that the
converter is for the positioning only.
SP2 Crash in element tree fixed
KISSsoft crashes when removing notch elements of a shaft and adding another cylinder afterwards via context menu. This is fixed.
SP2 Radial bearing stiffness was not properly calculated in some cases
The radial stiffness which is shown in the bearing report was not correct for some cases.
SP2 Texts with some %s can't be evaluated, are not translated.
Texts with some %s can't be evaluated, are not translated.
5Hinweis: Gemäss ISO4156-1:2005, Table 1, wird Die_max, Die_min, Dei_max, Dei_min mit Kopfkreistoleranz esv/tan(alfa) berechnet.
SP2 Splines manufacturing drawing
Table with spline data in the manufacturing drawing was drawn over the profile and flankline diagram data. This is fixed now.
SP2 Splines message supressed
The following message is not shown anymore for splines DIN 5481 and DIN 5482: "The reference profile is set to "Own input". For correct results, please also set spline standard to "Own input" in the tab Basic data".
SP2 Wrong warning message shown in case of constructed involute for splines
Message for the wrong root rounding in case of constructed involutes should not be shown for splines. This is fixed now.
SP2 Bug in the generation of stiffness matrix files from the gear body calculation module
The generation of the stiffness matrix in the gear body calculation module is not possible in some cases. This is now fixed.
SP2 Improvement: New methods to show or hide elements in the 3D view
With a right click on an element, the user can now Show3DElement, Hide3DElement for individual elements, and ShowAll3DElements, HideAll3DElements for a shaft or a group.
SP2 Improved power split method
The power split method has been improved to handle some more complex models. It can now also consider power losses on the split paths. And it gets automatically deactivated if it fails.
SP2 Ratio for planetary gear sizing when carrier is fixed
When sizing a planetary gear train with fixed carrier, the number of teeth ratio between sun and ring is now always used.
SP2 Fix in efficiency template, user defined oil level
The oil level could not be defined by the user anymore, only calculated. This is now fixed.
SP2 KISSsys crashes in some cases, when calculating Campbell diagram
In some KISSsys models, KISSsys was crashing when performing the Campbell diagram calculation.
SP2 Fixed 3D generation of straight bevel with low number of teeth
For a straight bevel with low number of teeth, the 3D view would sometimes throw an error (boolean operation failed). This is now fixed.
CHANGELOG SERVICE PACK 1
SP1 The dynamic equivalent load P for spherical thrust roller bearings was zero
The dynamic equivalent load P from spherical thrust roller bearings was zero, because the values for X1 and X01 were zero in the database.
The values for X1 and X01 factors are now added in the database.
SP1 Text for Lwc of spherical thrust roller bearing was missing in the DB dialog
In the DB dialog, no text for the field Lwc was set
SP1 Error text in diagrams is not shown or only partly shown
The positioning for texts in diagrams, e.g. 'no data available' or similar, was wrong (see KIS-1783).
SP1 Fixed Correction of the DIN 31657-4:2019
SP1 Autodesk Inventor: Interface to Autodesk Inventor 2020
Interface to Autodesk Inventor 2020 implemented.
SP1 KISSsoftCOM2019 registration didn't working correctly
If you have registered the KISSsoftCOM2019 (release-dependent COM), the registration of the general KISSsoftCOM has been overwritten.
It was possible to use only one of the COM interfaces.
SP1 Planetary contact analysis for asymmetric gears
Some small issues were fixed in the contact analysis for asymmetric planetary systems.
SP1 Added values in the message, how big the losses are
The values for PV0, PVLP, PVD added in the message.

The drawing data report layout for crossed helical gears has been improved. Some issues were fixed also for the crossed helical rack drawing data report.
SP1 Angle to first planet was not considered in the CA result graphics
In the planetary contact analysis result graphics, the angle to first planet was not considered. Now the planetary gears are shown in correct position.
This is only a graphics problem and has no effect on the calculation results.
SP1 Root rounding could not be applied for constructed involute
In some special cases, root rounding could not be applied to constructed involute if it was defined in tab Reference profile. This is now fixed.
SP1 Fine sizing with contact analysis for plastic gears
Fine sizing with contact analysis for plastic gears was not working correctly. This is now fixed.
SP1 Additional hint shown in the rhofp message
Additional message is now displayed if the warning message for max rhofp is shown.
SP1 Thrust washer added for the differential bevel gear drawing
Thrust washer is now drawn on the differential bevel gear set, if the special GKN setting is activated.
SP1 Editing the modification table did not set the inconsistent flag
When editing data the modifications table, the calculation did not become inconsistent.
SP1 Rough sizing of crossed helical gears
In cases when sigFlim was not available in the material database, the rough sizing of crossed helical gears was not giving results. This is now fixed.
SP1 Loss factor added to the report
Loss factor HV was added to the report. It is in the additional data section.
SP1 Main window state did sometimes reset wrong toolbars
When a calc module was closed while the report or help text was active, the wrong toolbars where reset next time when the module got opened again.
SP1 Example for user defined tab comment added.
A file comment.dui is provided under /ext/dui_example folder as an example on how to build a user defined comment tab.
The user can copy the file into /ext/dui folder to create the comment tab in cylindrical gear pair calculation.
SP1 Background color in editable tables reviewed
Read only cells in editable tables show gray background. Per default, selected cells do the same if the table does not have the focus. Therefore the color was sometimes misleading.
SP1 Various minor report editor fixes & improvements
Fix issue were occasionally, an incorrect total page count would be shown on printed reports
Fix an issue where the text spacing/kerning was behaving strangely in printed reports
Fix report editor zoom level changing on language changes in KISSsoft
SP1 Sun-planet result graphics for contact analysis
X axis of a sun-planet graphics in the contact analysis results was not correct. This is now fixed. The results from the contact analysis were not affected.
SP1 Crash when calculating S020 after closing a sub module
S020 calculation crashed after a sub module was opend and closed.
SP1 Sub modules could not always be opened if 3D viewer was active
Opening a sub module was not possible for large models if the 3D viewer was open.
SP1 Connecting bearings to another shaft were not shown properly in the sketcher
Connecting bearings from a shaft with only one dot to another shaft did not mirror the connection properly.
SP1 Rubber band for second dot in sketcher fixed
The rubber band was confused when the mouse was below or behind the first dot.
SP1 Closing a submodule will just close it without messagebox
We do not ask if the sub module or KISSsoft should be closed. We just close the sub module. Just click twice for closing KISSsoft. The close button in the toolbar is removed. It was confusing. We just use the X of the main window.
SP1 Input selection added to the boundary element editor
Power/Speed/Torque selection added to the element editor for boundaries. Same data as in the kinematic table.
SP1 Printing and saving to file did not work for the sketcher
The 'print' and 'save as' buttons did not work at all.
SP1 Crash when rejecting the assistant dialog
The software crashed in case the assistant dialog was rejected after
something was clicked in the assistant and the system had already contained data when
the assistant was called.
SP1 New info graphic for bolts in circular arrangement
New info graphic for bolts in circular arrangement added.
SP1 Added possibility to specify the coefficient of friction for hypoid gear meshes in shaft module
In past KISSsoft versions, the coefficient of friction for hypoid gear meshes in shaft module was set fix to 0.05. This value can now be changed in the module specific settings.
SP1 Minor error in operating pressure angle calculation of shaft module
For gear elements with a helix angle and multiple meshes, the operation pressure angle of the individual meshes was not calculated properly leading to minor deviations from the corresponding value in the gear calculation.
SP1 Sizing without any elements caused a crash
When running the shaft sizing function without any contour elements present, KISSsoft crashed
SP1 Buckling of shafts with fixed intermediate supports
Buckling of shafts with fixed intermediate supports was crashing. This is now fixed. Further than that, the result of the buckling calculation using the new shaft solver does not give buckling safety, but rather the Euler's critical buckling load. The corresponding texts are also corrected.
SP1 Speed and load cycle number in the report was wrong for the calculation with one load bin
For calculation for one load bin was the speed and load cycle number wrong in the report, the influence of the speed factor wasn't in.
SP1 Inclusion of point mass properties in the dynamic calculation, even if the mass is zero.
In some cases it is necessary to add a moment of inertia property in a dynamic analysis of a shaft, without defining any mass (e.g. for torsional vibration studies). Up to now zero mass elements were ignored in the dynamic analysis. This is now corrected.
SP1 Fixed gear rough sizing
Gear rough sizing called from KISSsys was not working. This is now fixed.
SP1 Report generation from main strength calculation fixed
The report generation from KISSsys was not working. This is now fixed.
SP1 Improved REXS export
Some part were missing in the REXS export. It is now improved, but is still not complete (first version is for simple models only).
SP1 Fixed shaft order in the shaft calculation tree vs KISSsys tree
The order of the shafts in the shaft calculation was different than the one in KISSsys when renaming or opening a previously saved file with edited shaft names. This is now fixed, the shaft calculation tree should always have the same shaft order as the KISSsys tree (otherwise some results might differ).
SP1 Report generation for the Load Spectrum template fixed
Same as for the main strength calculation in KISSsys, the report generated by the Load spectrum template was not working. This is now fixed. As there are multiple reports generated by KISSsys, an additional docx file is created for each of them so that they can then be opened by a simple double click.
