2161QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowMake Polyline from Selection (OC) configurable for simp...Assigned
0%
1 Task Description

QCAD Professional
Win installer 32bit
Version: 3.25.2.7 (3.25.2.7)
Internet: QCAD.org
Build Date: Dec 16 2020
Revision: e06f230
Qt Version: 5.13.2
Architecture: i386
Compiler: Unknown

Not related to OS, nor version.

The method Polyline from Segments (OC) can be configured for tolerance and simplification in the Options Toolbar.
The method Polyline from Selection (OG) has no UI or none showing.

OG retrieves a tolerance from QCAD.ini, what is initially not set:

    var tolerance = RSettings.getDoubleValue("PolylineFromSelection/Tolerance", 0.001);

The tolerance will be default = 0.001 similar as the default in AppPrefs.
The tolerance setting is included in QCAD.ini after changing the AppPrefs entry.

OG calls PolylineFromSelection.autoJoinSegments with this tolerance:

    var counter = PolylineFromSelection.autoJoinSegments(di, tolerance, this);

PolylineFromSelection.autoJoinSegments calls PolylineFromSegments.createPolylineShape
with simplification hard coded to true. (last parameter)

    // create polyline from line, arc, spline or open polyline entity:
    var polyline = PolylineFromSegments.createPolylineShape(
                    entity, doc, vTolerance, op, undefined,
                    traversed, callBacks, undefined, true);

I would like to see the simplification optional and default = true.

CVH

1 Task Description

With a Mac (and no external mouse) there’s no middle button so it’s not possible to pan the 3D view (that’s what they tell me in the forum). It would be useful if one could use command-drag or control-drag to pan around the 3D view.

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.

I’m often in the situation that I have to select for nesting 50+ sheets. Currently is only a Shift + left mouse click selection possible. It would be nice if QCAD/CAM could get for the nesting / sheet selection additional a mouse rectangle area selection.

 2244 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Add poyline segment midpoint to 'Store Positions' Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Andrew,

Besides that Misc .. Information .. ‘Store Positions’ - stores the startpoint of each polyline
- or stores all nodes of each polyline (With: InfoStorePositions/PolylineNodes = true)
Refering to https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?t=6300

I somethimes require the midpoints of the line and arc segments as spline controlpoints
+ the start and the endpoint when geometrical open.

Could that be made an undocumented preference too?

CVH

 264 QCAD (main)Feature RequestMedium Support for "Layouts" (paper space, viewport) Closed
100%
25 Task Description

There is one important ACAD feature that I would really like to see supported in QCAD3 and that is “Layouts”

Looking at the block lists, it seems to me that it can’t be too much extra work to support it, since the model space and different paper spaces are already shown there - and one can edit it.

QCAD draws infinitely easier than ACAD and drawing layouts is a primary feature of ACAD. With this in QCAD I can hardly see why anyone that does 2D work would need ACAD at all.

 1164 QCAD (main)Feature RequestMedium make selected layer default parent for new layer Closed
100%
1 Task Description

Hello!

I would like to suggest a small, but yet important improvement to usabilty.

When adding a new layer the currently selected layer should be default for parent layer.

Currently a new layer is by default a top level layer, and so the user has to select the parent layer for each sub-layer, again and again.

Thanks,
Christian

 1966 dwg2pdfFeature RequestHigh Add a new option to convert all blocks to pdfs Closed
100%
Task Description

Relative to https://www.ribbonsoft.com/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1965

I suggest that if dwg2pdf have an new options that can convert all the blocks to pdf.
Now, I need to know all the block names before converting.

But if I put qcad on server, the computer won’t know how many blocks in the dwg and their names.

For examples:

There are 4 blocks in dwg.block1, block2, block3, block4

Command line: ./dwg2pdf -block-all path

Result: block1.pdf block2.pdf block3.pdf block4.pdf

2021QCAD (main)Performance IssueVery LowCannot work with big dwg filesAssigned
0%
Task Description

Openning a big file or doing any action in it, takes minutes to load.
Even dragging the scrollbar slightly left or right, takes mintues to redraw the canvas again, which makes QCAD un-usable for professional use.
Is there a way to make QCAD usable, after loading completed:
- Like suppressing edit until user says so,
- or taking snapshots of rendered canvases to another file and use it, as windows uses thumb.db ( for negative latency :P )

PS: I wish I could help a bit, but my hand are tied. I am just a java freak, I am opt to any idea of porting it to java, if she is still alive.
