SPM Vector Components: Update

So, I realize that this is the third release of the SPM plugin in 7 days, but since we won’t be able to work on the project for a week or two, we thought it best just to get it out there…

In this release:

  • Added a boundary Brep option in the settings component. Very useful for clipping the integral  lines
  • Added two orbit detection parameters: distance and angle. If not zero, then these determine how closely the position and direction of a given step in the integration must match the initial point before the orbit snaps to being closed. Very useful for maintaining stable simulations.
  • Added a utility that acts on the output of either the dynamic or static integrator. If orbit detection is turned on, then you’ll want to sort the lists of integrated points in to lists of closed and open curves….this utility does exactly that. You may need to remove null trees from the list.

And that’s it for now…I’ll work on getting some examples of these new functions in the near future. Download it here…
