New Functionality

Autodrafting (for casting)
The Automatic draft capability speeds up the draft angle process to manage the whole part in one shot and to capture higher level semantic.

Enhanced Functionalities

Autofilleting with Parting Element
The Automatic Filleting capability can involve parting lines and parting surfaces. A parting line is a chain of sharp edges included on a parting surface. These edges are not rounded. The sharp edges that are incident to the parting line are rounded. This operation modifies the parting line in such a way that it remains on the parting surface.
Draft Both Sides Neutral/Neutral Fitted
The Fitted computation method is available if you are using the Neutral/Neutral mode. It performs a draft operation on two opposite sides of the part while adjusting the resulting faces on the parting element you chose.
Draft Both Side: Additional Tolerance for Forging Process
The resulting drafted faces of a draft both sides fitted are adjusted on the parting surface. This constraint may lead to transversal sharp edges. In some cases (Forging for instance), this constraint may not be useful and these transversal sharp edges may be unwanted. In such cases, you may need to set the Parting Element Adjustment to remove some transversal sharp edges.
Draft Both Side: Automatic Relimitation
This capability is applicable when the ribbon propagation encounters the first twist in the draft skin while creating a draft for a single body. It will reduce some steps and design time. With this capability, drafts will not fail in case of twist, but instead drafts the maximum ribbon and leaves undrafted the twisted zones.
Fillet face-face hold-curve with keep edge
You can specify the edges of support body to be kept and creates fillet surfaces with Hold Curve and Keep Edge as support wherever necessary.
