HyperWorks Report 2022 Release Notes

New Features and Enhancements

Log4j upgraded to 2.17.1
Upgraded the log4j component in Reporting mechanism from 1.2.17 to 2.17.1, consistent with other Altair HyperWorks solutions.
Automation Using HyperWorks Command Language
Expanded the coverage for record and playback for the HyperWorks Command language (HWC), which records and plays back workflows in HyperView and HyperGraph, to include all major Report functionalities. This includes:
  • Create OneClick session and model summary reports.
  • Create, export, and synchronize reports.
  • Add, edit, delete and move report entities such as images, text, and table in the report structure.

  • Edit Loop module
Note: Modules and editing Tables in the Table editing widget will be supported in the next release.
Performance Improvement for Loop Results module
Upgraded the Loop Results module performance to improve memory usage as well as the speed of image capture which is evident when operating a large model. Operations are also optimized to control the steps in which the algorithm moves to locate only necessary data before capturing it. For a sample model, the export time was found to be reduced from 2 hours to 20 minutes.

Resolved Issues

  • Static images while capturing GIF or AVI images.
  • Report loop is looping over components though not requested.
  • Although synchronization is performing in the background, the Report synchronization shows an application error.
