 1925 QCAD (main)SuggestionLow Poly Ref Points manipulation that generates null-segmen ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Win7pro 32bit Wininstaller Qcadpro 3.23.0

With a polyline.

Select the poly.
Pick any reference point of a vertex.
Place it on any of its neighboring vertex reference points.

A null-segment is created.
The placement can not be undone by re-picking the reference point.
Can be Undone/Redone.
The action can result from editing the vertex coordinates.
When exploding null-entities are created.

This action should delete:
- if the target is next: the picked vertex. (incl. start or end-1)
- if the target is prior: the targetted vertex. (incl. start or end-1)
- if the target is and next and prior: both the prior and the picked vertex.

As the user intentionally places any vertex reference points on:
- any excluding its neighbors:
→ the intented nature is ‘Self-Touching’, ‘Self-Crossing’ or ‘Trace-Back’.
- any of its neighbors:
→ the intention is to delete the segment(s).

Task Description

Win7pro 32bit Wininstaller Qcadpro 3.23.0

Draw an arc.
Select the arc.
In Property Editor:
Set start angle to 135
Set end angle to 135

SweepAngle = */-360

edit the end angle and add “+360”, hit enter

SweepAngle = 0

An arc with zero sweep is a point.
A point is not an arc.
With the same start and end parameter an arc should have a sweep of +/-360.
As for entries by points or by angles.

0%
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.

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”.

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

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

Task Description

Win7/32bit
QCADpro 3.22.1.0

Full 360 degrees Arcs don’t convert correct to polylines with the methods OG and OC.
Both methods create a zero-length open type Polyline and remove the full Arc.
OG creates a Poly with 2 vertexes at the startpoint (= endpoint) and OC one with 0 (zero!) vertexes.
The firts one is selectable, the second one only with ‘Select All’//TA because there are no references.

The OL method with the same start and endpoint doens’t affect the full arc.
Neither a poly is created nor an error is generated that the method failed.

Typical the bulge of the OG method is (-)16331239353195370, the OC method has no references.
The math to calculate the bulge should result in a division by zero or an illegal function as tan(π/2).
Therefore a polyline can’t contain a 360 degrees arc by standard means.

From the OC method is known that it simplify coradial arc strings to a single arc.
This should not result in 360 degrees arcs what would result in zero-length segments.
(With CAM fuzzy things may happen at such positions)

Simplifying coradial arcs strings that would create a 360 degrees arc should result in no less then two coradial Arcs.
The OG method will then creates a open Poly with 3 vertexes, OC a closed one with 2 vertexes.

Found while fiddling around with editing CXF fonts.
CXF uses full Arcs, two half arcs and even polylines with coradial segments that forms circles are supported,
the OC closed polyline with 2 vertexes is recoded as two 180 degree Arcs (90-270&270-90).

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.

0%
Task Description

My data files are stored on network shares (synology) with a GB link. QCAD Pro is run in Admin mode.

While in my Windows browser all remote shares are accessible (Green), in the QCAD file open menu they are initially shown as not accessible (Red). By accessing a specific drawing file in a remote share, the share will open and turn green.

Same behavior using ‘Open recent’. Always the message is given that the requested file does not exist, and the file is wiped from the ‘Recent Open’ list. Only if the share is first accessed through ‘Open’ with a random file, it will turn and a ‘recent open’ file for that share will open.

Drag and Drop from a remote share will never work.

 1892 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow weird/inconsistent text-alignment Closed
100%
Task Description

I guess I’ve discovered a bug:

Text elements align the same no matter if “base” or “bottom” alignment is chosen. The text is “shifting” (in both cases) when the characteristic “contains glyphs that cross the base line” is changed. Same shifting also occurs with text aligned “top” with having no glyphs reaching the top-line.
I assume this isn’t the intended behaviour ...

For demonstration I attached a file where I’ve put lines (to align with) and three sample texts “as” (only “center”-glyphs), “aps” (glyph crossing base-line) and “this” (glyphs reaching top-line), each aligned with all vertical alignment-options (1-top, 2-midlle , 3-base , 4-bottom).

Hope fixing this dosen’t take too much effort.
Regards,
Volker

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. :-)

 1889 DocumentationBug ReportLow Autosave fails for QCAD original cxf font location Closed
100%
Task Description

Now I try the third time to post this .... :-( .... deleted by “wrong token”???????
However ...

Regarding to the online tutorial:

quote:
Opening a CXF Font for Editing

To load an existing CXF font file in QCAD to view and edit its glyphs, simply use the menu File > Open and choose the format filter “CXF Font Files (*.cxf)”. Then choose the font file you want to open. The fonts that come with QCAD are stored in directory “fonts” of your QCAD installation.

quote end

Editing the cxf font in the original QCAD font folder will lead to a error message triggered by the Autosave function:

File access error: “C:/Program Files/qcad-3.22.1-pro-win64/fonts\~~Husky_test_font.dxf”. Access is denied.
[15:34:58] Autosave failed: C:\Program Files\qcad-3.22.1-pro-win64\fonts\~Husky_test_font.dxf

Note: Windows will not save anything in a system folder and the process is terminated by windows.

Solution: Move the cxf font for editing from the QCAD folder to a unprotected folder like Documents/drawings.
After editing is done move it back to the QCAD font folder.

1888dwg2bmpFeature RequestLowAdd support to disable hatch rendering on "dwg2bmp"Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

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!

Hi there,

A friendly request to add the option to set a maximum lineweight for raster conversions via dwg2bmp.

Depending on the LW configuration of the CAD file, rasterization operations sometimes yield terrible results (see attachment). This would also mirror the similar “-min-lineweight” options available on “dwg2svg” and “dwg2pdf” (although not on “dwg2bmp”).

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.
