Frame Builder V1_6_4 Release by NateLiqGrav

Insert profiles into Alibre Design from the user's library of profiles. Build frames, miter, trim, and extend profiles!

This software now requires purchase of a Serial Number or Trial Serial Number to use. Please contact me at nateliquidgravity@gmail.com for sales. See below for Trial Serial Number.



Updates/Fixes:
  • Now only works on Alibre Design V24 as new features will not be designed or tested in older versions.
  • Removed unused placeholder button for creating Frame Parts in the current Part workspace. That feature is no longer planned.
  • Removed unused placeholder button for creating Frame Parts as New Part workspace. That feature is no longer planned.
  • Renamed "Create in Current Assembly" button into "Add New Frame Members"
  • Combined "Change Profile", "Align Profile", "Rotate Profile", and "Mirror Profile" tools into one dialog and accessed by a button named "Edit Existing Frame Members".
  • Renamed "Miter Frame Corners" button into "Create Frame Corners" to better fit future plans.
  • Added support for translation language files. Frame Builder will default to English if a language file is not found for the language selected in Alibre Design. If you need a language file that does not yet exist please contact me - so we can get translations made.
  • Made more dialogs adjustable in size to better accommodate other languages.
  • More dialogs now remember their positions.
  • Added Setting to Disable BETA Warnings.
  • Fixed some error dialogs not displaying the correct text.
  • Trim/Extend to Plane now gets correct part occurrence from the assembly instead of defaulting to the first occurrence.
  • Fixed a problem with the wrong face being used when optional Alignment Face was used when creating frame members by Point to Point.
  • Added detection of the user editing a part in the assembly with instructions to return to editing the main assembly.
  • Fixed a "math domain error" error caused by floating point bit precision math.
  • Frame Builder will now require a Serial Number to run.
  • A Trial Version can be activated which will only allow creation of 5 parts at a time.
  • The PDF Help file is now opened depending on the language.
  • The FrameBuilder.xml setting LibraryFolder can now use Windows environment variables in the path when packaged. Frame Builder will attempt to resolve and store the actual path when first run.
  • Permission must be granted to verify the Serial Number online. The following information will be securely transferred in MD5 Hash format each time the program is run: Frame Builder Serial Number, Alibre License Key, and Computer Name. These MD5 Hashes are not personally identifiable.
  • Added Walkthrough Video to the help file.
  • Added more serial numbers hashes.
