I've been having a problem with Femap 11.1 freezing at seemingly random times. The most common occasion is when I am manipulating the model in space with my 3DConnexion mouse. It is a problem that I have encountered with 10.X versions, almost not at all with 11.0, and now it's almost daily with 11.1. In the past, I've left Femap to its own devices for 20 or 30 minutes, but it just stayed frozen and I had to end it via the task manager.
Has anyone else had this problem?
Contact me at the office, I have a patch that fixes this for v11.1.1. The 3D Connexion drivers through in some changes, and together withe some transformation issues in our code, this freeze can now happen. We've fixed this and recently tested with two customers in Europe who were having the same problem and it is fixed.

A patch for v11.1.1 has been uploaded to our Siemens PLM GTAC support website –
You can also upgrade to v11.1.2 that has the fix in, it’s in the Full Product Release area of –
No, it's for v11.1.1, or it's already included in v11.1.2. Any v11.1.x's are 100% licensing and database compatiable, so the best bet is to just insall v11.1.2.
For ease of clarification, I encountered the problem of Femap freezing with 3d mouse only few days ago when I upgraded from a Windows Vista 64 pc to Windows 7 64 bit.
Despite the bad reputation of Windows Vista, Femap never freezed...
