In a general context of congratulations for AURORA V2, and recognition of your commitment to achieving excellence in the FEA software realm, let me please make some respectful observations:
As announced, nodes picking has incorporated several new features but, also, evolved to a kind of BC administrator, that's what I find the most interesting and useful. To get the same functionalities in V1 I used to edit the input files, compose them, save in other folders, etc. So you can imagine how glad I am for the BC management features of V2.
Concerning the picking tools themselves and their relationship with BCs definition, I believe that more direct and mistake proof paths, could be good. E.g., if Pressure is selected, surface picking would be the default, and so on. Showing finally all the sets of BCs in the same place, in order to compose calculations. Then, if different combinations of BC sets could be calculated, it would be also good, in my opinion, that calculations don't replace each other so that their results can be compared.
There are several features of V1 that I miss at V2. In order of importance (for me), they are:
a) After meshing, to receive information about number of E, K and, if possible, of KOI. I think that this data would be accessed through the "Mesh Info" window.
b) The Statistics of the calculation outputs, with the possibility of export them.
c) To see at the monitor window the counting of iterations when SICCG or SORCG are running.
d) At the postprocessor stage, the features to show the model without the mesh and for adjust the scale.
The tools for control the part's colour and its lighting, are certainly welcome. A unified way of defining colours and some preset arrays of lights would be also good. The clipping tool is outstanding.
Finally, in my opinion, the most important features included in AURORA V2, are certainly the new calculations. I'm particularly interested in the nonlinear one. However, I need additional information (or knowledge) to manage it. I ran several trials, sometimes with odd results (deformations increase and decrease along the path). I have several doubts, but the main one is if the stress variation can be exposed. At the trials I did, this wasn't show.
I sincerely hope that some of these observations can be useful for you. On the other hand I'd like to thank you all again for your efforts.
