What’s new in Altair Evolve 2017

New Planar Symmetry and Radial Symmetry tools
These tools have been added to replace the Mirror and Polar Copy tools
Loft and Sweep feedback
The Loft and Sweep tools now provide additional feedback in cases of failure.
Length Parameter
A length parameter has been added to the Line and Rounded Polyline tools.
Curve Offset
When using the Curve Offset tool, you can now select surface edges directly.
Depth of Field
All images which are rendered inside Evolve include a Depth Channel (tiff). This Z-depth channel can now be saved in the Image Browser and used in post-processing tools such as Adobe Photoshop to simulate the natural blurring of foreground and background scene elements when viewed through a camera lens.
File Import/Export
The user interface for importing and exporting IGES and STEP files has been unified and now includes the option to select either the Parasolid or the CoreTechnologie library. This eliminates the need for two IGES and STEP options when opening or saving files.
SVG Format
Evolve now supports import and export to SVG format.
PDF 2D Format
Evolve now supports export to PDF 2D format.
DWG and DXF Update
Support for the AutoCAD Drawing (.dwg) and AutoCAD Drawing Exchange (.dxf) formats has been upgraded.
Quick Help Link
You can now access help for the current tool by clicking the ? icon on the Control Panel.
Background Image
Added an option to hide the background image.
KeyShot Live Link
Updated the KeyShot plug-in to support Live Linking with KeyShot version 6.
