1 Task Description

Hi Andrew

In QcadCAM when using the new Themes or User Created Themes the Layer and Block Tabs Appear to be reversed in East and West Positions.
I have discussed this with forum user PeteVick and he cannot reproduce this behavior in Qcad Pro... he suggested submitting this bug report.
I didn’t notice this until he pointed it out and don’t expect it to be high on your list of things to do..

Best Regards

2272QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSupport unit "US survey foot"Assigned
0%
Task Description

In the US, it is (unfortunately) still common to use US survey foot. It seems at least some DXF applications/libraries support this unit as a $INSUNITS value, some references:

There are two issues regarding this with QCAD:

  1. If you open a document with $INSUNITS being 21, it’s reset to 0 (unitless/unspecified) when saved again, even when not changing anything.
  2. It is not possible to select these units in the GUI.

I don’t know about standardization of these values, but my hope is that it’s at least possible to preserve the unit in an existing drawing. Given that this unit is supposed to be obsolete in some years, it might seem less important, but due to this transition, it might get even more important to be able to distinguish between units. Thanks!

2282QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowAdd a "Save As" command while editing blocks in placeAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

As a heavy mechanical drawings user, it would help a lot to have an option to exit a block saving as a new name and making it a new entity from that time ahead.

Example: if a have a lot of screws, one of then is behind another peace and need the to have some lines changed to hidden style lines, in the flow of the work is great if I edit that screw in place and when exiting have the option to save as a new block, to don’t mess with other entities of the same block that I don’t want to change. Yes, there is a workaround that is duplicate and rename the block prior to the editing, but a save as seems to work easier.

Thanks Andrew and team!

2284QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowZooming in & out causes grid/snap scale value change in...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

I have set the grid/snap value to X=.0625 Y=.0625 on all 4 viewports.
When zooming in and out the grid/snap scale changes from .0625 to 3.90625. at this point the grid/snap points differ,
This causes a variation in the grid/snap reference points lending to drawing errors.

example
When I use the grid settings defaults .01, when zooming in and out, the grid/snap scaling doesn’t seem to have this issue.
Other values do, See below.

set value first zoom second zoom next zoom

	point		point		point ...	

0.01 0.1 1.0 10.0 ...
0.02 0.04 0.4 4.0 ...
0.04 0.16 1.6 16.0 ...
0.05 0.25 2.5 25.0 ...

0.0254 0.64516 6.4516 64.516 ...

Why is there a squaring of the original set value? Which then becomes a new zoomed grid/snap value?

2287QCAD (main)Feature RequestVery LowEvaluate draw order for preference "Prevent white-on-wh...Assigned
0%
Task Description

The Application Preference setting “Graphics View - Appearance - Prevent white-on-white/black-on-black display” seems to be a global setting that doesn’t take the draw order into account. For example: With the setting enabled, it prevents creating a white hatch of a higher draw order on top of a larger, colored hatch with lower draw order (background). The preference does not seem to evaluate if the object is truly drawn as “white-on-white”.

With the preference enabled, setting the object color as “white” will set the “white” color label, but the object color actually stays black. Its hard to determine why it happens in that case.

Is it possible to let the global preference setting be applied to objects after evaluation of the draw order, and determine if the object actually is a true case of white-on-white?

My workaround: Disable the preference setting (I think it is default = on), and only enable it for ad-hoc checks of hidden and overlooked objects.

2289QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowVertical Line Tool stops accepting inputAssigned
0%
Task Description

When using the vertical line tool, you can enter a length value in the options toolbar, then place the line. If you want to change the length, you just need to enter a new value and the length field will update. However, there seem to be cases where after 10-20 entries, the focus goes off the length field in the options toolbar, requiring the user to bring focus back to continue. I could not seem to duplicate this behavior with the horizontal line tool.

Task Description

I use CTRL + I to pull up drawing preferences. Upon changing the dimension settings quickly and closing it normally by pressing enter it closes. But if i go to the next tab (drawing tab) then press enter to load it up quickly instead of pressing CTRL + I. Upon changing the dimensions settings and pressing enter to close it, it won’t close but instead flash and i have to keep pressing enter and eventually it closes.

I think this is a bug.

2293QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowinsert attributes into a point elementAssigned
0%
Task Description

Would it be possible to extend the tool for importing points with a label so that when importing points into the drawing (as it is now), the attributes of the point are taken from the csv file and written to the point’s own properties? See attachment. This would extend the functionality of the tool and I assume that it would also lay the foundation for the possible re-export of such points from the drawing to a csv file, including all the details.

I’m used to have persistant selection while drawing (Application Preferences > Graphics View:Appearance > Selection), but I’m missing deselection of all objects with ESC key. I have seen the option to deselect with right key, but it’s nice to have right key for context menu.

Currently ESC key cancels current active command, but would be nice if there is no command active to also deselect all features by default.

2301QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowRotate preview on/offAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

Hi,

I believe prior QCAD version 3.22.0.0 there was no rotating preview. The rotating preview shows the outcome regarding to the chosen center point. I know that it is also common for move/copy. However, for me it is very confusing and difficult to chose the correct center point for a rotation if I’m constantly been distracted by the most of the time overlapping preview of my selection. This said if the drawing is very detailed I have to zoom in extremely to be able to snap to the right entity. That wouldn’t be necessary without the preview. Additional rotate a large drawing selections will compromise the performance - CPU is going like crazy.

It would be nice to have an option to turn this preview on/off.

Andrew,

Where a segment is crossing in another node a non valid node is returned as self-intersection point.
Seems to be unrelated to CW/CCW or tolerance.

Task Description

Building with the bundled version, 1.8.5, works fine.

When I try to build using the system version, which for Mageia Cauldron is 1.9.3, the build fails.

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kekePower/mmbl/master/qcad/2019/12/11/20%3A13%3A48/log.qcad

Here is the current spec file for version 3.23.0.4.
https://svnweb.mageia.org/packages/cauldron/qcad/current/SPECS/qcad.spec?revision=1465894&view=markup

It looks like qcad is incompatible with versions above 1.8.5.

Are there plans to port to the new version?

Thanks in advance.

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?

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.
