Major release

General changes

This is one of the biggest releases of AGX since its realization!!

Solver

This release has many great improvements to an already fast direct solver:

Wire contact model

New rewritten wire contact model. The new contact model is a much more realistic friction model that allows for better interaction between wires and other geometries. There are basically two ways a wire can interact with any shape: sliding over an edge or over a surface. The friction when sliding over and along an edge is specified with: agx::ContactMaterial::setWireFrictionCoefficient which now has two directions, namely:

Cable damage model

A new module Cable damage is now available. It can be used to measure stress/contact/impact that occurs on a cable during simulation.

This also lead to some API changes in the Cable API. All changes should be caught by the compiler, for example:

Updated Matlab/Simulink interface

The Lua scripting interface for Matlab/Simulink is now depricated and replaced with Python. See data\matlab\scripts and the User Manual (pdf) for more information of how to connect an AGX simulation with Matlab and Simulink.

Fracture model

A new fracture model is available for automatically breaking up rigid bodies into convex set of smaller bodies. See tutorial_fracture.agxPy for more information.

agxVehicle module

A new library named agxVehicle is now available. Currently it contains a brand new implementation of a tracks model for simulating excavators or other tracked vehicles/crawlers.

See tutorial_trackedVehicle.cpp for how to utilize it.

Python

A more extensive python binding is now available with more examples. In Windows an embedded version of Python is used by default after installation. This is to ensure that AGX and Python works in most configuration. If you want to switch to your local Python installation you can do that in the setupenv.bat file. Some tutorial scripts might use a plotting library which is not available in the embedded Python version. To utilize this plotting feature you need to use your local Python installation and make sure you have the required modules installed with the command: agx-directory\data\python\installrequirements.bat Note that the 'pip' command is not available in the embedded python.

Stability fixes

There are hundreds of stability and performance improvements in contact generation and other areas.
