At the moment the software works almost perfectly, with only two small issues:
- Total Cd and Cl are not shown in the HTML report, but they are still present in the "log" of the simulation, so it is quite easy to find them
I can finally confirm this issue. I will try to fix it today.
Ok, this was a hard to understand fix but pretty much only involved removing about 4 characters, so not even an entire line.
The issue only affected Windows users with the latest blueCFD version. As it was so small, I was too lazy to introduce a new version number and so on. So if you are using Windows and missing the total forces, just once more download the 2018-07c version.
My plans for the next updates are mostly about improving the general software speed. At some point, some import bloated everything up very much. This does not only affect the file size of the software but also the startup time a lot. I have figured out how to analyze the culprit and have seen by just looking at the code how to improve other parts. This will happen very soon but will only be available for the next race. I think the software is now good for race one and I do not like changing too much close to a race.
The rotation of the HX around more than one axis is a different question but I want to tackle it. Right now an optimization figures out how it is oriented around the y-axis. Adding another axis turns the scalar optimization into one with more than one variable which can increase computation times a lot. Trust me it is a lot as soon as the HX stl file contains a few more nodes than needed (If I remember correctly it was a O^n problem).
Maybe someone of you can find a super efficient algorithm to find an oriented bounding box.
