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?

 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.

1890QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowPossibility to address an QCAD extern font folderAssigned
0%
Task Description

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. :-)

The reason is the same why we have it already for the library - without it we have to copy our individual fonts manually every time after a QCAD update to use them uninterrupted for existing and new drawings.

 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

1903QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowSaving layer settings, e.g. visibility status, associat...Assigned
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.

 1906 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Draw > Polyline > Polyline from Segments: Converting fu ...Closed
100%
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).

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

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

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).

In the Advance SVG Export dialog, when I edit the filename to be different than the default file that already exists and then clear the checkbox for “Overwrite existing file without asking” just to make sure that I haven’t already created a file with the modified name as well, then I get a popup warning that the export would overwrite the default filename, not the name as edited. In other words, the overwrite check ignored the fact that I edited the filename.

1934QCAD (main)Feature RequestLowDiametric text - overlaidAssigned
0%
Task Description

Diametric text is always placed above a horizontal measurement.

I often want to indicate both the inside and outside diameter of an object e.g. a wheel using diametric text. The text is overlaid and illegible.

To avoid text overlapping, I use Horizontal Aligned because I can control the position of the text to avoid illegible text.

A better method would be to alternate the placement of diametric text (alternatively) above and below a measurement so that in the majority of cases an overlap would be avoided.

Similarly for a vertical measurement, the text is overlaid and illegible.

When the angle is almost vertical, the angle controls the side the text appears however it also reverses the direction of the text (which is logical but not attractive).

Kind regards
