 1499 QCAD (main)SuggestionLow Add script generator for Qt 5.6.2 Closed
Task Description

As it says on the tin - please add script generator for Qt 5.6.2.

 1516 QCAD (main)SuggestionLow QT style on Linux Closed
Task Description

The startup script still forces a QT-style; Getting bored of that one, qcad runs fine with the system default style - probably that was a qt4 thing, that can be removed, so it blends better with the DE?

Task Description

... for the Option bar.

 1534 QCAD (main)SuggestionLow Headless Styling Closed
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_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.

Task Description

When selecting multiple blocks that contain the same attribute names, attribute properties appear with the values of the last selected block instead of “various”. I do not know if this is a “bug” or developer option, but “various” would be better in my opinion.

 83 QCAD (main)TaskLow Part Library - Find Files / Generate Files Closed
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.


[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 name="M4" d="7" D="3" s="4" k="3" b="20">
		<ref name="var1" />
	<var name="var1">
		<data L="22" />
		<data L="25" />
		<data L="30" />
