Re: Scale issue afetr upgrade to quadcam 3.15.5

Forget it - I realized I had a copy of qcad 3.16.7 (incorrect update a while ago) and it had the Edit-convert drawing unit.
All set

Re: Scale issue afetr upgrade to quadcam 3.15.5

To port your drawing, please proceed as follows:
- Load the drawing
- Edit > Convert Drawing Unit


There is no such command under the Menu-Edit in QuadCam 3.15.5.0

Re: Scale issue afetr upgrade to quadcam 3.15.5

OK, thanks for the explanation.
I did not want to convert if this was a transient issue.

Re: Issues adding Node to polyline

I am happy to give you something to work on e_surprised ! This is a pool design, I needed to make it 2 feet shorter, maintaining the end detail. My work around was to isolate the polylines one at a time on it's own layer, explode it, shorten the two long segments, then use modify -move/copy to recon...

Re: QCAD 3.12.6.0 Sluggish at times

I do have autosave turned on.
I'll try spreading them out to diagnose.

File is large because of embedded graphic.
Is 4.7MB a big dxf file?

QCAD 3.12.6.0 Sluggish at times

Running on openSUSE 13.2_64/KDE. Relatively fast, recent hardware. Plenty of RAM Stalls at times, System Monitor shows 1 core fully engaged (one of 8 core, 13% of total CPU) for long periods. Does QCAD not multi-thread? I have been doing a lot of in and out on the dxf file - perhaps some garbage han...

Re: How to Display Angles in Surveyor Format

I have to admit I'm not even sure if that would make any sense at all since surveyor's angles are absolute directions (N, E, S, W) but angle dimensions measure the angle between any two angles. Hmm, I agree with your observation What I was probably expecting, and might be a good enhancement, would ...

My Qcad is Version: 3.12.5.0 (3.12.5) on Linux (openSUSE 13.2_64) When I select Drawing Preferences-Dimension Settings - Angular Dimensions - Format = Surveyor's units my angular dimensions have no text display. If I choose Format = Deg/min/sec I get the correct text label on the dimension Am I miss...

Re: Using QCADCAM for Engraving Text

I hate it when that happens. My To-Try List: 1. Generate non-optimized GCode from the exploded file, for comparison. I tried this and found that all characters are normal, the GCode file ony a few kB larger than with un-exploded fonts. So I tried generating with optimized code again; similar good re...

Re: Using QCADCAM for Engraving Text

FYI, I just upgraded to 3.4.7, but don't expect that will change anything here. Edit > Application Preferences > Modify > Explode My current settings are the defaults, I believe; spline segments=64 and Ellipse segments=32. Be sure to save the drawing under a new name (e.g. mydrawing_exploded.dxf or ...
