OpenVSP 3.31.1 Released

OpenVSP 3.31.1

A handful of bugs quickly cropped up in 3.31.0 that justify this .1 release. While there are always more bugs to be fixed, hopefully these fixes help some people out.

There are a few new features in this release, but they’re really small. In a normal (larger) .0 release, these features probably wouldn’t even get mentioned here.

The real story of this release is the bug fixes – and it is a story mostly about structures.

As it turns out, CalculiX B32R’s are better than B32’s and per-element normal vectors don’t work (they are still the default). An option to disable beam element per-element normals has been added — it should be used until CalculiX fixes their bug.
