New in MassFlow 9.1

The latest updates to Itasca software products such as FLAC3D, FLAC2D, 3DEC, PFC, and MassFlow now introduce point-releases (e.g., 9.1, 9.2) between major versions (e.g., 9.0, 10.0). These point-releases bring significant benefits, especially for subscription license holders.

Subscription license holders enjoy seamless access to point-releases at no additional cost. These point-releases are packed with new features and capabilities developed in response to user feedback and industry advancements. By staying current with point-releases, subscribers can leverage the latest tools and functionalities, enhancing their productivity, efficiency, and competitiveness.

Perpetual license holders also benefit from continuous support within their software version's support period. While they may not receive point-releases, they still qualify for bug fix updates and minor improvements, maintaining stability and reliability in their software environment.

Better Flow

  • Added caved properties in the block model to keep track of mineral grades and rock properties as the cave process progresses.
  • Over 10 new FISH functions to interrogate and dynamically adapt the block model properties and markers properties, provide more flexibility for cave analysis (e.g., static days in caved blocks and lower- and upper-fragmentation limits on rock fragmentation).

Incredibly Faster

  • The internal DrawRequest module has been restructured to make importing the Draw Period file (.csv) virtually instant.
  • Now Draw Period data files can load in less than two seconds in v910, compared to 10 hours in v900, for a large mine simulation.

Better Scripting

  • Python can now access the built-in geometry logic (user-defined nodes, edges, faces, volumes, etc.).
  • The contourpy Python library (for calculating contours of 2D quadrilateral grids) is now built-in.

And More

  • Grouping operations are now faster.
  • New Hoek-Brown curve fitting and plotting tool – then add these value as PROPERTY commands right into your model.
  • QT 6 user interface libraries have been updated:
    • User interface appearance is improved on high-resolution monitors.
    • No need to specify OpenGL Mode.
  • By place an * at the start of a command, all related warning messages will be suppressed.
  • New unified dialog to better manage license/key management (Itasca Software License Manager).
  • New and updated mechanical and fluid flow examples.
