Version 2024.12.0.0.273 (English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, UK English)

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where green boxes were shown in Body Envelope for certain simulations when long special transport vehicles were used
  • Fixed an issue in attended Workstation setup (Setupworkstation.exe) where it did not install Visualization Engine component

Version 2024.12.0.0.267 (English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, UK English)

New features and improvements:

  • Server Installation - Moved generated MSI workstation installers to sub-folder for better organization
  • Transoft Notification App rebuilt to use .Net Runtime 8.0
  • Transoft login components rebuilt to use .Net Runtime 8.0

Bug fixes: 

  • Fixed a bug where Preview Arc Path did not preview selected envelopes, only showed body envelope
  • Fixed AutoCAD ribbon loading issue when installed side-by-side with previous version. Now when AutoTURN 2024 loads, it unloads the ribbon of the previous version

Version 2024.12.0.0.253 (English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, UK English)

New features and improvements:

  • AutoTURN 2024 now installs side-by-side with previous versions, so users can have multiple versions installed at the same time if needed
  • Improved algorithm and accuracy of simulations for vehicles with large steering lock angles, such as automated guided vehicles, industrial vehicles (forklifts and small cranes), certain semi-trailers, buses, and passenger vehicles.
  • (AutoTURN Pro only) Improved the performance and output of the bicycle simulation tools.
  • (AutoTURN Pro only) Added a beta visualization tool to create a conceptual rendering of 3D simulations.
    • Note: This tool is only available in Autodesk® and Bentley® platforms for now. It is currently not supported by BricsCAD® and ZWCAD® platforms.
