The help was designed in a modern theme. The examples were revised and a new example for the Grid Data Analyzer was added.

Extension: Image - Processor Script :

NEW: Image - Converter FEA Script generates Abaqus/Calculix input decks from CT images without the need of creating text-based template files.

NEW: Analyze - Grid Data Script: Reads XLSX or CSV grid data results (FEA mesh data) and sets-up a Python Pandas data structure for data analysis. The input data files are generally data distributed in space, e.g. from finite element analyzes or from whole bone analyzes. An ID (element or node ID) is associated with each data point to allow inter specimen comparisons.

Extension: Fabricate - 3D Print Script was further developed. It creates and visualizes STL surfaces from FEA models or segmented 3D images. The STL files can directly used for 3D printing.
