What’s new in MassMotion Flow 9.0
- Import and heal 2D drawings.
- Create floors, links, stairs, ramps, escalators, portals, barriers directly from 2D drawings.
- Trace over complex geometry, drawings, or imported images to create simplified objects.
- Align objects and components with other elements in the scene using object snap (see Transforming Objects).
- Change local frame of reference for translation/rotation/scale using manipulator snap (see Changing the Reference Frame ).
- Edit imported reference geometry like any other object.
- Protect reference geometry from inadvertent editing through a new 'locked' property.
- Imported reference geometry is deleted instead of hidden when converting to MassMotion objects (see Application Preferences).
- Import 2D dwg files.
- Import Sketchup files.
- Import image (jpg, png) files as textured rectangles to be used as references or decoration.
- New Trip Matrix event for origin/destination based demand.
- Specify a table based schedule for Gate, Server and Broadcast (formerly Action) events.
- Profile, token, portal, and gate entries can now be the name of a collection containing profiles, tokens, portals, or gates.
- Gates can be set to default open or closed.
- Gate events can both open and close gates
- Gate events can apply to a single direction.
- Limit boarding access to vehicle cars based on car capacity.
- Specify and/or show through passengers.
- Control pre-arrival time for alighters, boarders, and through passengers.
- Projects are automatically saved at intervals. Manage auto save from application preferences.
- There have been changes to how density is calculated, and the default relationship between density and speed. For more information see Speed at Density.
- Hide empty rows or columns in the Origin/Destination table query.
- Automatically execute and export queries using the new command line options '-query', '-queryall', and '-csvseparator' (see Console Simulation Window).
The following objects have been renamed:
It is now possible to view the status of events from a simulation run using the Event Observer.
