Possibility to draw Polygons with a given dimension for across flats (not only corners).

This task depends upon

Please elaborate (German is also fine, we will translate).

  • Is this meant for polygons (triangle, square, octagon, ...) or for polylines.
  • Which dimension should be given by the user.

Meant for: triangle, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, ...

Dimension given by user for across flats (A/F) like this:


Dimension given by user for across corners (A/C) like this:


Dimension given by user for high like this:

Thanks, all clear.

Just curios - any chance to get this feature request implemented?

By the way:
After searching for this post I realized that you don't get the Date of the Post if you are logged in - if you are logged out the Forums software displays the date of the post.
Why is that so?

Yes, this is certainly possible. I am currently swamped with other QCAD related work. New features will be implemented after this.

Just to keep thoughts together ;-)

Forum / Quote:

If I think long enough about this it brings me to the conclusion that it could also be the solution for the "Polygon, Center Point, PG1 upgrading. 8-)

If we have the possibility to choose a Reference Points (just two: middle and end) we could handle all variations on that polygon inclusive a radius determination with the Coordinate (R) function.
Designing A/F (across flats) at Hex Machine bolts etc. etc. etc. would then just be a piece of a cake ... ;-)
