The new version provides an alternative method of importing and automatically meshing housings and planet carriers. This offers an even better mesh quality and allows a meshing of very complex geometries, for example the geometries of gearbox housings in automotive applications are known to be very complex.
The system calculation considers now rotating 3D elastic parts for the calculation of eigenfrequencies (e.g., of planet carriers) using modal reduction.
Coupling connections were added in addition to the previous connection types cylindrical gears, planetary gear trains, bevel gears, worm gears and belts. It easily allows to consider hydraulic or electric connections between subsystems.
Many small extensions had been added like splitting or merging shafts in addition to copy, shift or mirror options. All bearings types are now drawn with separated inner and outer rings in 2D and 3D views. The animations for 3D mode shapes therefore allow a better understanding of the movement in the bearings.
Graphics can be frozen inside the program to allow comparisons and a copy option using the system clipboard was added for graphics for quicker transfer into other documents. The default format for reports is now PDF/A instead of standard PDF. The software documentation is now available as context sensitive help allowing faster access of information to certain inputs.
There are other new additions to the integrated bearing calculation.

Focusing on mechanical engineering, GWJ Technology, a leading engineering company with its headquarter in Braunschweig, Germany, stands for high quality products and innovative software development. With keen insight, high energy and an enthusiastic team of engineers, we put our utmost efforts, skills, knowledge and passion into our work to achieve top quality products.
Our portfolio includes the development of standard calculation software for machine elements, such as shafts, rolling bearings, cylindrical gears, bevel gears, etc. To increase the efficiency in the design process and to combine calculation and CAD, we provide CAD plugins for various 3D CAD systems.
Our software solutions are designed with a sleek user interface, making it easier than ever to design or re-calculate machine elements.
Additionally, we have geared our company to offer a special software application for the determination of real 3D tooth form geometries of complex gears. The tooth form is the basis for a 3D model to manufacture gears in conjunction with multi-axis machining centers. The software opens completely new possibilities for engineering.
