LiveLink™ for Inventor®

Exclude Selected Object Types from Syncronization

Object types – such as solids, surfaces, curves, or points – can now be excluded from the synchronization when working with the bidirectional interface that is included with LiveLink™ for Inventor®. While it is always possible to prevent objects from being synchronized by hiding them in the CAD design, this new functionality provides a faster way to exclude selected object types with just one click. Excluding objects can result in faster synchronization for large CAD files that contain many geometric objects that do not need to take part in the simulation, such as construction surfaces, for example.

Performance Improvements for Add-in Loading

LiveLink™ for Inventor® registers add-ins that are loaded at start-up of the CAD program. These add-ins provide the functionality of the bidirectional and embedded One Window interface COMSOL® modeling environment. In COMSOL Multiphysics® 5.1, we have optimized the loading time of these add-ins, minimizing their contribution to the start-up time of the CAD program.
