I just updated Plant Simulation to 12.2.1, I was working with 12.0 version.
I noticed two issues with the new version :
1) 3D view : When I opened the 3D view I have a non-sense view, looks like the picture below. This model was created by the 12.0 version and the 3D view was excellent. How come it doesn't work with the new version.
2) Method object : When I drop and open a new method called "Method" on my frame. Normally in the previous versions the method will be like this :
is do end;
but in the new version the method is empty :
And when I wanted to write manually "is do end;" it makes an error !!!
If anyone have a thought ! Thank you very much
Solved! Go to Solution.
To help to solve the graphics issue with the 3D viewer you can go to:
File - Preferences - 3D - OpenGL - Version
Start at the highest version and change it down one at a time until you have found one that works.
As for the thing with methods, you will find that it is working as intended. There is a new version of SimTalk out which is SImTalk 2.0 which does not require is - do - end to be in the methods, and by default the method objects are set up to opperate with the new version but there is a button in the toolbar to change between them. You can still use and program in the old SimTalk 1.0 and can have models running with a mixture between them as well.
I have the same problem even though my graphics driver in updated version.
do you have any alternative solution for this?
Thanks a lot in advance!
Are you certain that there is no newer driver?
The driver is about three years old which is relatively unusual if it is considered the newest driver.
I recommend you search for a more recent driver outside the windows update mechanism because shortly described with some unpleasant words, windows will not regard a driver as suitable for the user unless it is hopelessly outdated. With other words, the windows update routine is pretty crappy, at least when it comes to updating graphics drivers.
However, I do not know whether Intel offers an own driver source. Maybe there is someone else here who has already had some experience in this field.
On another topic:
You mentioned that you tried to change the OpenGL version. Which versions did you use (and which ones are offered)? Did you restart Plant Simulation after the changes?
