New Orca3D WIP Release

We're pleased to announce the release of a new Work-in-Progress (WIP) version of Orca3D (1.3 WIP 2013-03-06).

This release contains the evolving Stability Criteria Evaluation functionality, which has had significant user interface improvements, as well as new capabilities added. Minor changes to the grouping functionality of the weight/cost report were made to improve readability, and a bug was fixed in the porpoising calculation in the Planing Hull resistance feature.

As a WIP, there will certainly be feature additions, changes, or removals before the final release, but this is your chance to give us feedback and suggestions. A few important notes to be aware of:
  • Only one version of Orca3D may be installed at a time. Therefore, you must uninstall Orca3D from your computer before installing this WIP.
  • No change to your License is required. The new version of Orca3D will find your existing License.
  • Portions of the Help file may not be entirely up to date.
  • This WIP will expire on June 7th. Either the final version of Orca3D 1.3 will be released before then, or a new WIP will be released.
If you have questions as you install and use the new release, remember that you can:
  • send an email to support@orca3d.com
  • read through the Help file which is available from the Orca3D menu in Rhino, and on our web site here
  • post a question on the Orca3D forum
  • To download the new version, please visit www.orca3d.com/wip.
    Thank you very much for using Orca3D, and we look forward to hearing from you!
