Update pack PLAXIS 3D 2016.02

Next to the PLAXIS Coupling Tool, the update pack for PLAXIS 3D 2016.02 is released. This update pack brings several fixes and improvements to the PLAXIS program:

  • fixed model sometimes temporarily disappearing in Input
  • tunnel cross sections would sometimes unnecessarily be closed with tiny segments that would lead to problems in intersecting and meshing
  • some intersecting and meshing issues
  • the “explode” visualization option works again in Input
