After designing one ore more parts you may want to produce them.

Maybe it is a flat part, made out of copper sheet metal. You need several copies of the part and you wonder how you can arrange them on your sheet metal in a clever way, so that you end up with as little waste as possible.

And here software could really speed up the process. It would be a great addition to QCADs CAM abilities if it would be able to produce a cutplan.

Enter the size of the sheet metal (or whatever material), select the part(s), enter number of copies and let QCAD find the best way(s) of arrangement. Additional parameters could be clearance between parts and border margin.

FS#1438: MText with vertical alignment base saved with alignment top (dxflib) 2016-06-20T09:15:59Z 2016-06-20T09:13:31Z

Vertical alignment “base” (not supported for MText) is saved as “top”. Using “bottom” to replace “base” would be more appropriate.

FS#1437: Bug with Polyline > Offset 2016-06-16T14:20:26Z 2016-06-16T13:44:37Z

Spotted a bug with Polyline > Offset (OQ)

On the attached file (png image, link : http://nikel.ovh/~tukuyomi/oq_bug.png ), the white entity is a polyline (1 line, 1 arc, 1 line).
Using Polyline > Offset (OQ) with a big value (1100 in my case), I expect to get the green polyline.
What I have is the red one (also CPU is maxed for some seconds every time I move the mouse.)

FS#1436: Block > Create Library Item: item does not have same unit as source document 2016-06-15T15:47:34Z 2016-06-15T15:47:13Z

Library items created from existing drawings should have the same unit as the drawing. Currently, the unit of newly created library items is ‘None’.

FS#1435: Default Template for new Drawing 2016-06-15T14:51:25Z 2016-06-15T14:51:25Z

It would be great if the user could choose a default template for new drawings.

There exists already a “File → New from Template” feature, where I can choose a template, but in most cases I want my new drawings to be based on my default template.
It would be very convenient if there is an option to set the default template and use it for the “File → New” function.

FS#1434: File > Print: print offset 2016-06-13T14:18:26Z 2016-06-13T14:18:07Z

Prints under Windows are offset by the default printer margins.

This is caused by QTBUG-5363, https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-5363

FS#1432: Wrong x scale for imported texts 2016-06-08T12:02:10Z 2016-06-08T12:01:47Z

If text style has a text width (x scale) that is not 1, the property x scale from the text style is applied to all texts of that style.

Dots in line patterns along polylines with property “Polyline Pattern” set to “Yes” are rendered as horizontal lines.
