Batch files20 February 2021
Batch files allow PoreXpert to run a series of operations, in parallel for suitably powerful computers (as detailed in the Help system). An improved class of batch files has been developed, that indicate if they are being used wrongly. They are posted on a new Batch Files download page.
New intermediate tutorial10 February 2021
In response to one of our users, we have written a new intermediate level tutorial entitled Modelling your own sample. You can access it at https://www.porexpert.com/help2/index.html?modelling-your-own-sample.htm . It also explains how to view the simulated void structure of high porosity samples. With good wishes to all visiting this website, and the hope that soon Covid-19 will cease to impact on all our endeavours.
New advanced tutorial21 December 2020
We now have a significant number of researchers and product development scientists using PoreXpert version 2. However, Covid-19 restrictions have prevented us from organising training courses. Therefore we have posted a new advanced tutorial at https://www.porexpert.com/help2/index.html?artefacts-and-stochastic-realisations.htm. It is required reading, as it explains how to avoid false results generated by the program itself – artefacts. We wish all our users the best possible Christmas and New Year in these very difficult times.

PoreXpand update23 November 2020
If your samples are compressible and you are using a Micromeritics Autopore porosimeter, then you should use PoreXpand as a data pre-processor. It allows much more precise correction for compressibility than the standard automatic correction, and also measures the bulk modulus of the solid phase of the sample. In response to renewed interest and sale of PoreXpand, we have updated it with the latest graphics drivers, and refreshed its Help system . Please contact us if you wish to purchase a copy.
First update of PoreXpert v221 October 2020
Unlike much software, updates to PoreXpert are free of charge. In response to suggestions and requests from current users, we have produced the first update to PoreXpert version 2, with details shown on the Software Support | Change log page. Various new messages and controls have been translated into five languages, including Spanish as shown.
