1913QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow3D Simulation Behaves oddAssigned

Task Description

Hallo Andrew,

testing the drill toolpath I used single point markers.

In 3D simulation the tool drills the toolpath AND uses the drill as a mill.

Cam Export and generated G-code is not effected.

1916QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowMoving an object in an angled viewport with mouse does ...Assigned
0%
Task Description

To reproduce

1. Select a new view-port in model-space
2. Select the appropriate paper-space
3. When the paper space opens change the angle of the viewport to 90 degrees
4. Place view-port in paper space
5. Select the view-port in paper-space by clicking it
6. Try to move the object itself in the view-port (by clicking the “top” dot) to the right by moving the mouse to the right while holding the left mouse-button.

Actual

The object in the viewport moves down vertically NOT to the right

Expected

The object moves to the right

(It seems mouse movement does not compensate for the rotated angle of the viewport)

Workaround

None, except compensate for the angle in your head and moving the mouse the “wrong” way when correcting the placement of objects in the view-port

0%
Task Description

Scenario: e.g. Tools Move/Copy and Rotate switched to “use without dialog.

Launch within a drawing Move/Copy, use the Keyboard keys CTRL + Space to focus on the Option Bar - the field for Numbers is Highlighted and I can change it. Further navigation with keys on the keyboard depends on remembered option (copy yes/no etc what make a navigation possible or not. It looks like the navigation with the Arrow keys is focused on the canvas and sooner or later the courser will jump to the Command Line or Property editor. Same behavior with the Rotation tool.

Again, the MISTAKE was by accident, not intended, in a flick of the wrist ...
I didn’t change the trimming method, I simply forgot to ... only once.

The ‘undo’ of my incompetent MISTAKE didn’t returned to how the situation was before I erroneous trimmed with TM.
I was simply undoing my erroneous action.

Documented it in 4 quadrants.
For this, 4 times on purpose, and not as a consistent ‘odd choice’.

Arctic_Eddie reports failing CAM offset at exactly these points !!!
Reported is a faulty arc with radius of over 360,000mm.
- I can not reproduce this under QCAD working further on the Polys with NaNs.
- However the direct offset of such controlpoint Splines is erroneous.
(see file in post 30902)

Arctic_Eddie reports arc radii of over 10,000mm.
- These don’t seem to be faulty.
- I agree that BiArc fitting should be bound to a lower and certainly to an upper limit.
- That should be huge otherwise faint curvature is represented by many
wobbles or too quick by straight lines.
(All this, keeping in mind that QCAD doesn’t return the optimum fitted BiArc, see: https://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?t=4859)

The threshold for that are #00, #65, #8b, #b2 & #e5

Dark Red, Dark Green, Dark Blue, Dark Cyan, Dark Magenta, Dark Yellow

If I create a new block it won’t work in a new drawing nor in the old test drawing - no chance to snap to the Block Reference.

512QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowModify stretch and Restrict orthoAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

The modify stretch tool wants first and second corner, start and end point, then starts afresh. When I turn on restrict horizontally eg to align two points between start and end, the restriction sticks and I have to call restrict none, to be able to perform the next iteration, set the first corner then.

So, in the quest for a comfortable user interface, it was nice, if the modify stretch first/second corners parameter setting was not affected by current restrict/ortho etc. settings. Actually, that does not make any sense at all anyways, does it, a rectangle is defined by two degrees of freedom, isnt it?

564QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSettings organisation in levelAssigned
0%
Task Description

As an old professional “documentation writer and user inteface designer” but IMHO, I’m not convinced that the “Application preferences” are correctly organised for ease of understanding and using them.
These settings are organised in 2 levels. Some of the first levels have their own settings (e.g. “Graphics view”) while most others don’t (e.g. “Load/save”). May I humbly ;-) suggest some consistency rules :
- no sub-level if there is only one subject
- no items on main level if there are already 1 or more sub-level(s).
For instance :
- sub-level “Default Dimension settings” under “Dimension” is the only sub-level : then move these items under main level “Dimension” and suppress the sub-level ;
- the items under “Graphics view” main level (with several sub-levels)could be in a sub-level named “General” ;
Actually, “Graphics view” main level is the only one which has both its own items and sub-levels ;-))) ?
