SmartSlice 21.0 release notes

The following new features and enhancements were added in the 21.0 release of SmartSlice.

New features:

  • Custom surface selection tools
    • Tools for selecting surfaces with complex curvatures were added and allow users to select specific regions of simple surfaces and to select specific regions of complex surfaces. This greatly expands the scope of surfaces that can be used to apply anchors and loads.


  • Improved stability and performance
    • Significant updates were made to the SmartSlice cloud infrastructure (the "back-end") that will improve the stability of the SmartSlice solvers and also allow for larger and/or more complex models to be solved successfully due to a doubling of system memory.
  • 5 new, tested materials added
    • Arkema FluorX (Kynar® 826)
    • Braskem FL105PP
    • Jabil PA 0600
