Task Description

Hi Andrew,

Still working on creating HPGL.PLT toolpaths for the HP7580 pen plotter. QCAD has some trouble creating toolpaths. Too often it shuts itself down, or the PC gets stalled.

Recreating the same error however is possible

Module mise à plat d’un cone

Bonjour,

Serait il possible dans un futur d’ajouter un module de mise en plan de cone.

Une petite fenêtre sur lequel on donne par exemple :
1- Ø haut
2- angle de coupe du haut
3- hauteur du cône
4- Ø bas
5- angle du bas
6- épaisseur matière

Ce qui permettrai de sortir une mise en plan a plat de la forme

1870QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Stretch tool / option to turn selection restriction on...Assigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

since 3.19.2 the Stretch tool looks for any selection and follows the specification “Only stretch selected entities if there is a selection”.

That is a nice feature but it leads many times to confusing because I have to deselect a selection just because I need to use the stretch tool on something else on the fly. The same if I “forgot” a selection outside of my zoom which is still important for me. The stretch tool just won’t work without any message why not. My routine now is that I terminate every selection just before I use the stretch tool just not to be surprised by “why isn’t it working”?

It would be nice to have in the Stretch option bar a checkbox to turn the “only selection feature” on or off. QCAD should remember that setting.

1877QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLowPost Processor TutorialAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hallo Andrew,

I am still busy on the never ending G-code story. Doing so I wrote a small Post Processor Tutorial for all those nerds who wants to write their own. If you like it you might add it to QCAD. However, since English is not my native tongue I suggest checking it would be wise.

Meanwhile I have downloaded the source code, and could not find the CAM’s Drill-path-script. I am now using a negative Drill Cut Depth to set a Laser Dwell time, were as a field “Dwell Time (in seconds)” in the Drill-path would be more appropiate. Is this script open source available or is it part of ‘closed part’ of QCAD?

Task Description

Like the Library Browser it would be nice to be able to define a extern font source folder. Especially now after we are able to create our own cxf fonts with QCAD. :-)

The reason is the same why we have it already for the library - without it we have to copy our individual fonts manually every time after a QCAD update to use them uninterrupted for existing and new drawings.

1903QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSaving layer settings, e.g. visibility status, associat...Assigned
0%
Task Description

In a medium complex drawing it may be too much details to have all layers in a drawing visible at once.

Instead a number of views would be created that saves not only zoom level and position but also what layers are visible and not (as appropriate for the purpose of that particular view). This is very cumbersome (to the extent it is not really realistic) to achieve today and requires a lot of duplication of both model and layers.

The advantage of adding this is the ability to have only one model (with multiple views) and avoid duplication of work and the risk of inconsistency inherent with many copies of the model.

As a further (and natural extension to this) would be the ability to used this functionality with view-ports to be able to create (possibly many) paper-spaces from a single model. This would however require view-ports to be aware of what view they are a window into. A single change in the model would then propagate to all defined view-ports and paper-spaces.

1915QCAD (main)SuggestionLowViewport does not rotate view-port when changed in pape...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.

Actual

The object in the viewport changes but the viewport itself remains unchanged

Expected

That both the view-port and the object changes angle as the angle is updated

Motivation

If you abort the placement (but keep the angle) and go back to model-space and then redo the operation the view-port is rotated along the angle. It seems that the viewport only picks up the initial angle once the paper-space is open and ignores any changes thereafter

Workaround

1. Select the view-port per normal in model-space
2. Open the paper-space and set the wanted angle but do not place the view-port in paper space
3. Abort the placement on paper-space and redo the whole operation

Once the paper space is opened again the view-port will have the chosen angle

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

1917QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAutomatic labels with static information of the drawingAssigned

Task Description

I would like static information of the drawing (like scale, creation-date, modified-date, revision etc) to be available as automatic labels to be placed in the drawing (with selectable style, font etc)

This would greatly simplify the creatin of title sections in the drawing and making sure it is consistent with the actual drawing and not requiring manual “synchronization”.

0%
Task Description

Hi,

my setting for “Auto Zoom on load” is checked to on. That works perfect for me for most of my drawings.

But if I save a drawing with Layout Viewports then I have to adjust every Viewport again after loading.

Would it be possible to have an option below Application Preferences / Graphics View / Appearance / Auto Zoom on load / ON which excludes drawings saved with Layout Viewports?

1934QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDiametric text - overlaidAssigned
0%
Task Description

Diametric text is always placed above a horizontal measurement.

I often want to indicate both the inside and outside diameter of an object e.g. a wheel using diametric text. The text is overlaid and illegible.

To avoid text overlapping, I use Horizontal Aligned because I can control the position of the text to avoid illegible text.

A better method would be to alternate the placement of diametric text (alternatively) above and below a measurement so that in the majority of cases an overlap would be avoided.

Similarly for a vertical measurement, the text is overlaid and illegible.

When the angle is almost vertical, the angle controls the side the text appears however it also reverses the direction of the text (which is logical but not attractive).

Kind regards
Simon

Hi,

It would be less confusing to read messages in the command line protocol if it would use the same coordinate separators like the settings below Application Preferences / General / Coordinate Format.

Absolute Cartesian Coordinate: Setting = semicolon (;) but the message will use division (/).

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.

0%
Task Description

Previous Feature Request #1285, dated 2015, incorporated in QCADPro 3.24. I regularly adjust linetype scales on hidden, centreline and phantom lines to achieve the best appearance on the drawing when printed. I note the Paint Properties feature copies all the attributes of the chosen line but does not copy the scale. I have to change the scale of each line, even after ‘painting’. This copying all Properties is something AutoCAD does. I know I could change the line to Hidden2 etc. and tick the ‘scale lines’ box in Drawing Properties but that is not always successful- copying properties is a quick and useful way of achieving the required result.

Marked parent layer with all sub-layer / Duplicate Layer / only ONE layer will be duplicated.

1 Task Description

Win7pro 32bit Qcad 3.23.0

Andrew,
The Arc segments of Polylines with Global or any Local Width render faulty where Global Z or any of the arc’s local Z is not zero.

In the attached drawing setting the Global Z of the inner poly to 5,10,...

The setting of Z to not zero affects the radius of the projected arc and not the bulging of the poly.
It also affects the projected widths of the line inversely, but not by changing the widths properties.

Pritty rare combination! True.
Qcad is 2D native! True.

Flatten will resolve this.

It is not a purely visual rendering fault, the poly will explode as such.

Maybe similar flaw as with uneven scaling blocks with arcs.
