The following release notes apply to Toolbox build 24.1.0611.641

SMA Fixes

Users reported two issues centered around the Solid Model Analyzer, specifically centered around routing on parts that used the SMA. 
Fig. 01: The midpoint of an arc going outside of the bounds of a part.
  1. There was an issue that would occur when analyzing parts with an arc in them, such as a part with an arcing route near the border. Rather than have the route be displayed properly throughout the entire drawing, when analyzing, the arc would be positioned improperly, with a small section of the arc going over the border, creating a flattened spot on the part that was present during cutting. 
Fig. 02: The analyze mode producing an excessive number of vectors.
  1. A recurring issue was noted wherein one would analyze an arc on a part, only to find that the polyline was separated into an excessively high number of vectors, rather than just a single continuous vector of an arc. 
Fig. 03: New Arc Analyzation settings.
  1. Both issues were resolved through a slight calculation adjustment of the SMA. 2 new options have been added to the Solid Analyzation settings under the Toolbox Setup tab, "Bounding Box Precision" and "Refine Lines-to-Arc". These options are enabled by default and will allow users to increase precision on bounding boxes, as well as refine line-to-arc conversion to minimize vector amount.
