COUPLE v1.2.2

20 January 2023

New features:

Packages of models within a COUPLE project file

It is now possible to package models inside the project file. This can be done by clicking the Home screen while a project is open and selecting the Info option. In this screen, the user is able to view all models in their project as well as some basic information about each model. From here, the user can select which model they would like to package within the project. This model will continue to be packaged within the project unless decided otherwise.
Packaging a model within a project allows users to open a project using a model that they do not have access to in their libraries. If a user opens a project which contains models that they do not have access to, the Info screen will allow them to see which models cannot be found, by use of a red traffic light. The user may click the magnifying glass icon next to the missing model to see which available, but inactive, libraries could be activated to give access to the missing models.
If the user opens a project which has a packaged model, they are able to import this model to an available library of their choice by clicking the import icon in the Info screen.

Library entry conflict resolution

A scenario could exist where a project uses a model that is found both in the library and packaged within the project. This could happen if the packaged version is outdated by the library version. In this case, COUPLE allows the user to view the two models, and make a decision as to which they would like to use. The user is also able to see whether there is a discrepancy between packaged models and library entries by the presence of an Unsynched icon in the Library card.

Other changes:

  • Fixed an issue where COUPLE could not resolve missing library entries in a project.
  • Added graphing a spectral analysis preferences.


COUPLE v1.2.1

14 December 2022

New features:


It is now possible to create variants within a project by using the tabs at the top of the design area. Each tab, or variant, can hold its own topology. Variants are created/deleted/duplicated/renamed using standard tabbing actions.
Each variant creates its own result in Analyze and will be updated each time Compute is pressed. The user is able to make changes to each variant and update all results by pressing compute.

Interface generated channel names

Channel names are now automatically generated based on the interface names of the assigned topology and DoF Type. This significantly improves the process of comparing results.

UFF Reader

It is now possible to import data in UFF format.


Preferences have been added to COUPLE and can be accessed from the Home screen. These preferences can be set on an application or project level.

Other changes:

  • Added the number of DoFs to the interface mapping window and the property inspector.
  • Further improvements to relative path libraries.
