SusProg3D - Suspension by Design.
===================
Version 4.600 has a number of enhancements.

Thanks to all of those who made comments and suggestions.

In no particular order.

bullet

If the wheel toe setting option is changed, any open dialogs will now be updated with the new setting.

bullet

If the angle setting option is changed, any open dialogs will now be updated with the new setting.

bullet

Added the front wheel steering to the display.
After doing the steering calculations, the steering can be cycled through in the display. Best viewed in plan view.

bullet

Removed the hard limits on the number of bump & droop calculations.
Especially for long travel off-road applications, there can now be more incremental steps between static and the full bump/full droop.

bullet

Removed the hard limit on the number of roll calculations, and now roll in both directions.
Previously the chassis rolled in one direction only. Now it rolls in both directions.

bullet

Changed the Ackermann calculations to use toe-out-in-turn instead of using the steering arm intersection.
Previously the calculation was based on projecting the steering arms onto the rear axle.
Now the calculation is based on the actual turning angle of the wheels as they are steered.

bullet

Added Ackermann percentage to the Excel exports.

bullet

Added steering offset to both steering calculations and Excel exports.
The steering offset is the true distance from where the line through the king pin axis intersects the ground, and the tyre centre.

bullet

Added an option to limit the Excel ranges.
When using an Excel spreadsheet designed to show data from an older version, and extra data is now being calculated, then the size of the named ranges may be small than required.
Either increase the size of the named ranges, or use the "Aandra" option to limit the data to be exported.

bullet

Added the pushrod/pullrod to bellcrank angle, shock to bellcrank angle to the suspension calculations, and added them to the Excel exports.

V4.600B (Build 1131.1) bug fixes.

bullet

Fixed a bug that caused the loading of a data file to fail if the initial roll point was using a "bump" point.
Thanks to John for this one.

V4.600C (Build 1131.2) bug fixes.

bullet

Fixed a bug that sometimes caused the loading of a data file to fail if the TotalMass was zero.
Thanks to Josh and Rob for this one.

V4.600D (Build 1131.3) bug fixes.

bullet

Fixed a bug that sometimes caused the loading of a data file with a live axle to fail if the  toe setting was zero.
Thanks to Bruce for this one.

V4.600E (Build 1131.4) bug fixes.

bullet

Fixed a bug that prevented setting the chassis camber link mounting for Ford Mustang.
Thanks to Simon for this one.

Your feedback and suggestions are always appreciated.
