100%
Task Description

Create and extend part library.

Find Existing Files

Find files under a suitable license (e.g. creative commons) for inclusion into the QCAD part library:

  • DXF / DWG files
  • SVG files which we could convert to DXF with a command line converter or InkScape if possible.
    • DXF files produced from SVG / with InkScape contain a lot of polylines with small line segments which interpolate arcs and circles.
      • A ‘Convert Interpolating Line Segments’ tool could be used to convert line segments into arcs, ellipse arcs and circles.
        1. for c in 0...number of nodes: create arc with v[c], v[c+1], v[c+2]
        2. check if v[c+i] is also on arc for c+i<number of nodes
        3. if n nodes have been found which are all on arc and all segments have almost the same length and are relatively small compared to the whole drawing, convert them to arc
      • A ‘Simplify Polyline’ tool could be used to remove nodes that don’t add a lot of information (almost straight connected line segments).

Parameterized Items

  • Parameterized items use XDATA to let the script behind know which entities need to be changed in which way.
  • The user can choose from all supported parameters shown in a table.
  • The user can choose from options:
    • Create dimensioning
    • Create auxiliary lines
    • Create center line
    • Scaling
    • Sectional drawing
    • Hatching space
  • Disadvantage compared to automatically generated items:
    • It is not possible to add an item with it’s parameters to favorites, e.g. some specific screw often used in a drawing. To make that possible, the parameters has to be saved, too.

Links

[mostly old] Generate Items Automatically

  • Research possibilities to turn data sheets into library parts, for example attached data sheet.
    • Ideas:
      • use an XML file for data entry, use an ECMAScript to generate symbols based on the XML file.
      • Instead of writing a complete ECMAScript file to generate the geometry, it might be possible to simply draw one item and attach XDATA to the entities for information on how the item can be scaled, stretched, etc.
        • E.g. a line might have the XDATA “transform” with value “translate(length-5, 0)” which would mean that the line has to be moved ‘length-5’ to the right, where ‘length’ is the current value of the ‘length’ parameter in the XML data file. Similarly, there could be functions like “moveEndpoint”, “moveStartpoint” or even “rotate”, “mirror”, etc.
      • XML file could contain all data and refer to a .js file that is used to generate the specific drawing. E.g.:
<!-- XML document defines a name template to use for the generated parts: -->
<parts name-template="DIN_912_M%1_L%2" script="din_912.js" format="DXF">
	<!-- Attributes to use for the name template -->
	<name-attribute attribute-name="d" />
	<name-attribute attribute-name="L" />
 
	<!-- For each type of the specific part, we define some parameters that 
		are identical for that type (here M3): -->
	<type d="3" D="5.5" s="2.5" k="3" b="18">
		<!-- For each of these elements, a DXF file is generated. This DXF file 
			is generated with file name "DIN_912_M3_L22.dxf" and parameters d="3" D="5.5" 
			s="2.5" k="3" b="18" L="22": -->
		<ref name="var1" />
		<ref name="var2" />
		<data L="60" />
	</type>
 
	<type name="M4" d="7" D="3" s="4" k="3" b="20">
		<ref name="var1" />

After deleting QCAD3.conf the drop-down menu appeared wide after the first startup of QCAD. After the second startup it appeared narrow again.

1323QCAD (main)SuggestionLowImprove command line support in QCADAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

As a typical command line draftsman (still using acad10 for dos, since microsoft doesn’t supoort Win NT anymore),
I noticed a severe lack on command line acces in QCAD.

For example I find the icon and pixel selecting methods within qcad very confusing and rude.

With the normal cad Select command I can select exactly what en how I want it.

I intend not to be rude, but I find my drawing screen littered all over with all kind of very specialist menu’s,
tools and options. Sorry, I just want to make a drawing at the natural intuitive way, as with a pencil.
So I use command line Commands, such as Move, Copy, Change, Select, a.s.o.
For a ‘Command scripting’ user (-batching is a different tool!-),
it seems to me logical these basic commands should be accessable.

I would like to suggest that we have the added option to show only icons if desired and also that maybe an option to save and show commonly used tools!

What do you think?

Would not it be possible to create a kind of template for printing?

Original suggestion:

Bonjour,

Ne serait il pas possible de créer une sorte de template lors de l’impression ?
On dessine notre pièce sans cartouche. Le cartouche s’affiche automatiquement lors de son impression. La mise à l’échelle pourrais être automatique pour que ca rentre dans le A4 et donc l’échelle s’afficherai aussi en automatique. Le nom de la pièce pourrais être le nom du fichier, la date du dernier enregistrement après c’est le reste des infos qui serait à ajouter je ne sais comment (matière, indice, dessinateur, ...).

 1534 QCAD (main)SuggestionLow Headless Styling Closed
100%
Task Description

Since the launcher batch no longer requests “-style plastique” QT wants to apply the native style of the desktop environment. This fails on a headless system (or where the current user has no graphical shell to connect to) with the message “Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: “. Fortunately, QT provides a workaround in addtion to the new “platform=offscreen” flag.

In the tools that set -no-gui, beforehand export these variables into the environment

export QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=""
export QT_QPA_PLATFORM=offscreen
export DISPLAY=""

PS: QT-offscreen will not find fonts; unfortunately the workaround only allows for a single directory to search them (I need helvetica):

export QT_QPA_FONTDIR="/usr/local/share/fonts/type1"

Maybe that should get reported upstream, so that like LD_LIBRARY_PATH several directories could be specified.

0%
Task Description

After each update, I add a dot before the ~user/opt folder (and in the program launcher) created by QCAD to unclutter my file manager’s appearance. Would be easy, I think, to make the installer put the program directly in ~user/.opt, and nobody would miss that folder while browsing through daily used files.

And what about installing the program as root, so all users of a computer could use it without personal installs, and only personal setting files created by users would be kept in ~user/.opt/qcam.

Task Description

I only noticed today (perhaps they were available earlier?) that there are 64 bit binaries for windows; I suppose these are true 64 bit.

Yet, the installer prompts me to put them into “Programs (x86)”, where all the 32bit software lives, I guess - this seems to be a pure convention though, the application runs just fine.

Maybe the reason is, that the 32bit version was installed before; Maybe it should change? Maybe it should stay, so that there are not two?

In files exported with the (even PG) exporter I sometimes see values like these: 334.99999999999994 or 570.0000000000001 and very often 12 digits of precision.

To safe on file size, I suggest, that QCAD rounds values on SVG export to eg. three places. When viewed in an ordinary web browser, that will result in a precision of 1 inch / 96dpi / 1000 = 0.00026mm, not? Ends should still meet.

If I understand correctly, SVG export uses svg groups to keep QCAD block entities. This in itself is very useful. There is no way to correctly keep layer information, as QCAD blocks can contain elements on different layers, while SVG only knows about groups. That is a deficiency of SVG.

To save on file size, there was some potential to get rid of ever repeating same attributes on entities, eg: style=”stroke:#000000;stroke-width:0.25;stroke-dasharray:2.16,1.08”

To optimize “By Block” is easy: just set the attribute on the SVG group, and omit on below entities styled “By Block”.

To optimize “By Layer” is a little more involved, but might be solved by using css:
- Create a class by the name of the Layer
- add the class attribute to elements styled “By Layer”

Then only individually styled entities would get a style attribute, and filesize of SVG could be halved in most cases.

This just an idea :) Having written this, I now realize, that QCAD can style weight, pattern, color each extra, so the optimazition could only be applied to entities, where everything is “By Layer” or “By Block”. But that should be the case most of the time.
