With default autosnap settings reference points included I find it very hard to snap to the baseline reference points of a dimension.
I manage to do it by setting snap to reference point only and zoom out till I see the entire dimension element.

2099QCAD (main)Bug ReportLowDIM Label, Square Symbol doesn't adopt layer attributesAssigned
0%
Task Description

The square symbol offered as symbol in DIM label is the only symbol which doesn’t adopt the layer color.
If I print a drawing in full color it leads to a black symbol in an otherwise colored dimension.

It is also the only symbol which has a solid filling what is confusing when you work with it in Model_Space ...

2115QCAD (main)SuggestionLowMove toolbars with negative positions to 0 positions Assigned
100%
Task Description

As it can be seen in the attached image, QCAD toolbars may dock to a position slightly outside the visible area of the screen. After having docked there, I have not been able to move them any more. Their current position is just in the middle of the screen.

The position of the toolbars remains the same after the deinstallation of QCAD, shutting down, restarting the computer and reinstalling QCAD. I kindly ask for help.

Kind regards
Reinhard

I am getting random crashing on my MacBook M1 chipset while using QCAD Pro. There is nothing in particular that you can do to replicate as the crashing is completely inconsistent. Have had it crash when pressing escape while using measurement tool, but have also had it crash while using the app and selecting a tool.

Included crash report, which has also been sent to Apple.

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!

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.

2290QCAD (main)Bug ReportVery Lowloading the Drawing Preferences using enter, using ente...Assigned
0%
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.

I have the Pro Version

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.

Andrew,

In the attached dxf:
Besides that it is clear that duplicate vectors are not filtered ...
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.

Where 2 nodes coexists 4 duplicate vectors are returned.

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.

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.

2307QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLowTools to create dogbones or corner overcut Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

The inside corners of profile tool paths have rounded inside corners. This occurs because the rounded outside the bit cannot make it all the way into the corner of the feature. Think of tracing the inside wall of a cardboard box with a can of soup. The can makes direct contact with the box walls, but its
round shape is unable to completely fit into the tight corners— there’s always a gap.

In a dog-bone overcut (see the figure in attachment), the inside profile corner is enlarged into a semicircle, allowing the sharp edges of the mating piece to slide through without interference.

When a dog bone is applied to the inside corners, as shown in the second figure in the attachment, the joints fit together nicely!

The following website explains what should be implemented More elegant CNC dogbones

There are two ways to implement this tool. Either you modify the original design (as implemented in Fusion 360) or you can do it at the moment you define the tool path (Estlcam allows you to do this for example). See the feature Corner overcut, on Estlcam website

QCAD has a lot of trouble creating toolpaths and exports. Much too often it shuts itself down, or gets stalled. Why? I am not sure.

Hi Andrew

QCAD/CAM misses a hpgl.plt import. If gerber and G-code can, so should plt.

1877QCAD/CAMFeature RequestLowPost Processor TutorialAssigned

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?

Hallo Andrew

It would be more than conveniant, defining the drilling locations of the drill toolpath, by selecting a circle’s center point.

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.
