Hi Andrew,

I would like to request an additional option in the dimension tool set to have a curved leader line, could be just the spline tool with an arrow on the end?

 477 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow crop objects at page margins Closed
100%
Task Description

It would be nice if QCad would print only objects inside page margins (i.e. to print a detail of a large drawing with margins). At the moment objects are visible up to page borders, and exporting to PDF with re-printing to a larger page contains even more objects.

805QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowCreate tool radius compensation / tool path generationAssigned
0%
Task Description

This is how I would implement this:

This would be a modification tool. Parts are selected, a toolpath is generated, and a dialog pops up to allow putting the tool path into an existing layer, a new layer, or replace all drawings in an existing layer.

This is how the toolpath is generated:

We iterate through all elements and explode everything but text into line segments. Then we connect the line segments into chains wherever the line endpoints are less than some tolerance away from each other. The chains can be very chaotic, but at least we have separate entities for now.

For every chain, we need to find the largest complete loop. A good drawing would only contain non-overlapping loops, but we can’t expect that. Everything that is not on this loop can not be defined as a part or as a hole, so we will merely create a tool path segment that is equivalent to the line segment. Every segment that *IS* on a loop is either an outside edge (part outline), or an inside edge (hole outline), (or overlapping, in which case it is neither, and we have an operator problem).

In a perfect world, we need to find exactly which shape is inside which other shape, and then create alternating tool offsets from the outmost loop (part edge) to the second outmost (hole), to the next (part) etc. .

In a simplified world, we can used the bounding box of the loop instead. This works OK for rectangular shapes, but a circle next to an “L” shape could be seen as inside the L’s bounding box, hence inside the L, wrongly accused of being a hole, not a part.

Now all that is left to do is to create a new loop, offset by the tool radius. Oh, and since we have the connections from line segment to line segment in the correct order already, we can use the opportunity to order all cutting loops from inner to outer, or from small to large, and order non-loop edges by travel distance.

The new drawing in the new layer can now be exported without further hassle to create a nice laser cut file.

PS: of course, a user could create multiple layers for marking, cutting, enraging, etc. . Additional Layer attributes for cutting speed and laser power (and a few more) would be needed.

1977QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowCorresponding coordinate format Assigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

It would be less confusing to read messages in the command line protocol if it would use the same coordinate separators like the settings below Application Preferences / General / Coordinate Format.

This example shows the “Absolute Cartesian Coordinate” but of course all corresponding format settings should be used within messages.

Absolute Cartesian Coordinate: Setting = semicolon (;) but the message will use division (/).

1625QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowCopy LayerAssigned
0%
Task Description

Hi,

often I’m in the situation that I have to create an additional Layer mostly based on the settings from an already existing Layer. Just a question of organization. This new Layer has then everything identical except the name and one(?) Attribute. This could be that only the color or the Line weight deviates.

Example:

Existing Layer

Layer name: Lot 47 area existing

Attributes

Color: Red

Lineweight: 0.35

Linetype: Dashed


New Layer

Layer name: Lot 47 area proposal

Attributes

Color: Blue

Lineweight: 0.35

Linetype: Dashed

Unfortunately if done manually it happens in an blink of an eye that the human imperfection (me!) makes a mistake and (e.g.) a “Center (.5x)” finds it way into the Linetype Field instead of a “Center (.2x)” .... :-(

The workaround for a few User is to use in cases like this the Property Editor / General Property and customize single Attributes. In my opinion the first step to lose the control over your own drawing ...

A “Copy Layer” / Copy Layer Attributes” function would speed up this task and eliminate to a minimum the “human imperfection” factor.

I could imagine that a right click (like copy block) on the Layer triggers the “Add Layer” function and the dialog is already prefigured with the Settings of the Source Layer ...... ready for editing.
The new Layer itself is “empty” like any other new Layer.

 1403 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Copy and Paste vectorpoint to built a spline in QCAD Closed
100%
Task Description

Would it be possible like in AutoCAD and Draftsight, to copy (from CSV or TXT) into the command line of qcad a table with
vectorpoint to built up a Spline in QCAD ?

Sample:
Spline
10.5,10(LR+CR)
20.8,20.4(LR+CR)

and so on

this text would than paste into the command line, and works like a macro.

Will be very helpful to generate a Spline where the vectorpoint had been calculated with for example “Excel”

 683 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Convert Spline to Polyline tool Closed
100%
Task Description

To have a tool that could convert splines to polylines would be useful, particularly for laser cutting work where a nice steady flow is needed, otherwise you can get an erratic ‘jumpy’ movement when cutting..
Maybe a ‘two’ step procedure;
1.First convert to arc/line segments.
2. Then if needed convert to a continuous polyline.

1705QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowConnect certain actions and layersAssigned
0%
1 Task Description

When dimensioning my drawings I always want the dimensions to be on the dimensions layer.
When adding text I want the text to be on the text layer.
When drawing an infinite line it is always a construction line, therefore I want it to be on the construction line layer.
When drawing a line segment it almost always is on my outline layer.

So I propose a new option to bind certain actions to certain layers.
Whenever those actions are selected the layer should automatically be switched.

I can imagine this being implemented in the General→Tool Settings menu, where the short cuts are defined.

Task Description

A line with linestyle = dots and line weight = 0.00 appears in model space overly spaced, all other lineweights behave as expected.

Many times, after pressing the space bar to access the command line, accidentally an space character is added at the start of the line. It’s very difficult to see it.

Invalid coordinate or distance ' @20,20'.

The request is for the command line parser to just ignore leading spaces.

Thank you.

 761 QCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Colour Indicators for Layer List Closed
100%
3 Task Description

Layers are great for organizing a project. For construction lines alone I sometimes use 3 and more layers. And then there are more layers for each part I design. Each with its own colour.

And when a project gets bigger I start wishing for a quick overview in the layer list to the colours I use on them. So I wish for colour indicators on the layer list to quickly identify the membership of a line to a layer.

I have a small image attached to make you see, what I mean.

Hi,

in QCAD3 RC2 points were printed as crosses, in QCAD3 RC4 they are printed as (very little) points. I think this isn’t a bug but a feature. ;-)

It would be nice if one could change this behaviour / select the symbol of points.

Change a quote value modify the drawing + link quotes with entities

In other words, makes quotes editable AND linked to entities.

  • Today in the properties, the value is read only. Being able to edit the value would modify the linked entity properties to fit the new quote.
  • Changing a property would change the linked quotes accordingly. Today, if I change a circle diameter which is quoted, the quote remain where it was and is no more relevant.

Hi,

One thing not in the v3 (but in the v2) is the ability to assign a layer to an entity by double click on the layer name (in the layers list)

On V 2 :

2 - Double click on the layer’s name

> then le entity is in this layer

On V 3 :
1 - Select entity
2 - Double click on the layer’s name

> nothing change

It’s useful to change it by this way, please make it possible in v3.
