Task Description

Hallo Andrew,

Still busy on the never ending G-code story. Urgently needed the very handy G-code Block Toolpath. This ‘toolpath’ also solves a lot of “editing requests”.

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.

2245QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowBold fonted text appears regular sized - v 3.26.2Assigned
0%
Task Description

Text that has been applied to a drawing with the ‘bold’ attribute sometimes appears as regular, un-bolded, text. When increasing the viewing magnification one will see the text adopt the bold attribute, but at smaller sizes the text appears without the bold. This can be confusing causing the draftsman to double-check whether the text had the bold attribute.

Current version: 3.26.2

Previous version: 3.22.1 (note: in this version, bolded text appeared bold at all viewing magnifications.)

1080QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowBitmap export: calculate size based on bounding box inc...Assigned
0%
Task Description

I have created a drawing, where the CENTERS of the most outer lines have a distance of 3.06mm in both X and Y.
The line weight of these outer lines is 0.6mm, so the whole image is 3.06mm + 2* 0.6mm/2 = 3.12mm wide and long (center to center plus half of the line weight on every side).
Additionally in the export there is a frame around the image, making it 3.12 + 2*frame.
The export function however calculates 3.06mm when setting the resolution to 1000Pix/cm, so it does not include the line weights and the outer frame.

2242QCAD (main)SuggestionLowBill of MaterialsAssigned
0%
2 Task Description

It would be a very interesting feature to add to future versions.

I also use AutoCAD Mechanical 2012 and the BOM is synced with every balloon on the drawing. Making it easy to edit.

The core BOM accepts formula fields and we can easily calculate the mass of a part, with some Ifs and math.

The BOM that is shown in the actual drawing is more simplistic, and has just Part number, Quantity, Mass and the Description. But it’s related to the “core BOM”.

It’s a very interesting thing! It would be great on QCad.

0%
2 Task Description

Zooming in and out is lagging to the point of unusable. This is happening in a layout block with the cursor pointing inside geometry with hatches. When the cursor is pointing outside the geometry zooming works as expected.
The attached file has a very simplified testcase that shows this problem almost in the same way as a more complex drawing with multiple layers and hatches.

edit: I also attached the more complex drawing because it is a bit unclear to me where the lagging stops. Outside the viewport or outside the paper.

I just noticed the selection box has the same problem!

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”.

1681QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAuto-dimensioningAssigned
0%
Task Description

You can apply the command to Lines, PolyLine segments, Arcs, Circles, and Rings:

For linear entities parallel to an axis of the coordinate system, aligned Dimensions (parallel Dimensions) are created. For linear entities not parallel to an axis of the coordinate system, either aligned Dimensions (measuring the absolute distance between two points) or horizontal or vertical Dimensions (measuring the horizontal or vertical distance between two points) depending on where you move the pointer are created.

For curved entities, you can create radial, diameter, linear, angular, and arc length Dimensions.

To dimension entities:

Click Dimension > Auto (or type AutoDimension).
In the graphics area, select an entity to dimension.
Click to place the dimension line.
To use another dimension type for Circles or Arcs, specify an option:
Diameter. Creates a diameter Dimension.
Radial. Creates a radial Dimension for an Arc or Circle.
Linear. Creates a linear Dimension of the diameter of a Circle or an aligned, horizontal, or vertical Dimension between the end points of an Arc.
Angular. Dimensions the angle between the end points of an Arc.
Arc length. Dimensions an Arc length.
Note: The chosen option is the default the next time you use the AutoDimension command.

When you move the pointer during a linear dimensioning, you can:
Lock. Determines the current dimension type (aligned, horizontal, or vertical) regardless where you move the pointer.
Unlock. Unlocks the type of linear dimension used.
Press Enter.

***
In short, when you use this tool you click on an entity and it will know what dimension you’re looking for. For Circles, you can specify in the command window R or D for Radius or Diameter.
This would be extremely useful on large drawings where a lot of dimensioning is to be done. One tool and start clicking on entities for dimensioning.

Ziehe ich mit der Maus eine normale Auswahlbox kann ich Elemente markieren.
Möchte ich einzelne Bereiche wieder herausnehmen muss ich alle Elemente einzeln anklicken (mit gedrückter Shift Taste).
Ich kann zwar dies komfortabler gestalten mit der Select → (De -) Select Contour Funktion welche aber erst über das Menue aufgerufen werden muss.

So wie ich einzelne Elemente mit der Maus auswählen und mit der Shift-Maus Funktion deselektieren kann wäre es schön wenn die Shift Taste auch bei Auswahlbereichen direkt zum deselektieren eingesetzt werden könnte.

Case:

Select a block array,
put it with “Copy with reference” or “Cut with reference” into the clipboard,
choose a reference point which isn’t in the center of the array,

If I flip only in horizontal or vertical direction the preview box will double in size and I can’t place the entities precisely regarding to the reference point.
If I try to flip in both directions at the same time - you can’t see this effect.

1472QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowArc fit tool to improve large filesAssigned
0%
Task Description

Large files/large entities perform bad in QCad. There are many dxf files that are created with thousand of lines that perform reasonable in other cad’s/cam’s that qcad cannot match.

One very useful tool, that could be added would help to improve qcad performance and at the same time enlarge the dxf quality (by replacing thousand of files by arcs), would be a tool called “arc fit” where, when possible and under a determined possible error margin (user selectable) creates arcs replacing the existing lines.
This would improve the file work in QCad also improves CAM software that would work after QCad, that I think is important for many users.

For example, if it is needed to use qcad to generate toolpaths for letters, after exploding letters, the output is almost impossible to work due to the number of lines that are created. Having arcs instead of lines would greatly improve qcad use.

1789QCAD (main)SuggestionLowApplication Preferences / General / Performance :0Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi Andrew,

we know that you need to have always software performance in your mind to decide which features / tools can / should be implemented and on which way.

I really appreciate your effort to find the best middle way between software features and performance but I think also it’s a tough call to appraise worldwide the overall customer equipment to make the software workable to the best for everybody. That isn’t possible without compromise.

Maybe it would make sense to think about a new dialog in the “Application Preferences” to let the user decide what kind of feature are absolutely needed regarding to his/her work-task / equipment. I don’t mean that you need to cover every single thing but the main “performance jeopardy’s” should be covered with an on/off switch.

Yes I know - that isn’t done in 5 minutes but I think that can make your life easier in the long run and will cover even more customer.

Just my two cents. ;)

2213QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLowAllow editing Spindle Speed separately for each Toolpat...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hello dear CAM developers!

I need to use the same tool at different spindle speed in a single machining file.
I would deeply appreciate if you could add a Spindle Speed edit field in the CAM Profile Toolpath edit window in order that each Toolpath can have its own Spindle Speed value (same as you did for Feed Rate and Plunge Rate)

FYI, the tool on my concern is a laser who’s power is driven by the Spindle Speed PWM signal.
I need to be able to do both engraving and cutting in a single file.
Alas! this laser tool is defined with a fix and unique number (99).
Therefore I cannot define different laser tools with different speeds.

Many thanks
Best regards.

The Info Tool Polygonal Area is a helpful tool ... but I like to ask for additional options ;-)

Yes, the polygonal area makes absolute sense but many times you have just to check a square or rectangle area!

It would be nice and time (click) saving if we could use a “Strg Key” to limit the polygonal area to just a rectangle area.
Two mouse clicks for a rectangle area and done ;-)

In addition to that it would be nice to have the possibility to count up or down a couple areas.
E.g. I measure area 1 plus area 2 or area 1 minus area 2 ...
Maybe just with an additional keystroke like + or -

If I work in QCAD only with Toolbars (and not with the “Cad Tools” there is nowhere a Button to find for “Create Block from selection”.
If I have to create a Block based on a selection I have to work with the Menu or have to activate the Cad Tools.

But, if I look at the Blocklist menu there is a function (+) to add an empty Block. It would be nice to have this button working for both situation - empty Block or depending on a selection to “Create Block from selection”.

Or alternative an additional Button ... :-(

Anyway - in my opinion would that make the “Blocklist” complete. :-)

Hi.

I’m working currently a lot with files coming from rhino. Qcad can open them properly any also most operations on them work as usual - except the selection methods.

double click to select all connected entities is broken. (only one entity is selected).
box select from lower right to upper left does not select entities touching the selection box. (nothing is selected)

on mac os nothing is selectable with single click.
on linux single click sometimes fails (nothing is selected after clicking on a line).

Hi!

A friendly request to add an option to disable hatch rendering on “dwg2bmp” conversions.

Depending on the nature of the conversion and the density of the hatch, this may render unintelligible images (see attachments). The option could look like “-t, -nohatch” to indicate hatches should be hidden before rendering. This could potentially become an option too for “dwg2svg” or “dwg2pdf.”

Amazing product, thank you so much!
