Update 2020.2.1.9

(Released December 24, 2020)

Improved

  • [Import] Support of SolidWorks 2021 version

Fixed

  • [Import] Fix potential issues with JT import
  • [Toolbox] Fix triangle count issue with Create Colliders - Retopology Standard
  • [Toolbox] Fix issue with Create Normals
  • [Toolbox] Update behaviour with function launched on mesh without renderer
  • [Toolbox] Fix issue with GameObject & Sub-mesh level on RemoveHidden function
  • [Toolbox] Fix presets on CreateUV for LightMaps


Known Issues

  • Using Merge function gives console's errors but still work
  • Problem of memory leak while using Toolbox function
  • Using Toolbox's functions change Meshes' name
  • Importing JT can takes a lot of time. It's due to the retrieve of Brep informations in order to let Pixyz generate a high quality mesh, better suited for hard optimization.
  • Problem when createUV with very low value on meshes with textured materials. You need to re-assigned them to get the appropriate rendering.
  • Assigning a LODRule to a LODProcess make the LOD distribution bar bugged
  • Huge .RCP files can request a very high memory at import and therefore makes your Unity Editor stop the process

Known Issues

  • Create Normals give unrelevant result
  • Problem when createUV on meshes with textured materials. You need to re-assigned them to get the appropriate rendering.
