hi viktor,

i noticed this while i was playing with the new update and encountered it a couple of times in passing now but just figured i must be doing something wrong... but i do think it's lwcad-

when i perform a round on the top of a rectangular piece of geometry, the edges at the corners pull apart. even on corners where it's not visibly tearing as shown, the vertices end up unwelded.

hi,

so i'm still currently on the 3.x version and i'm looking to upgrade soon but was wondering if in the later versions, there's a way of changing the scale of library objects when the library objects are invoked during tools like cloning a library object on a polygon.

i forgot the exact name of tool but there is one tool that allows you to "spray" a library object on an existing poly an

Hello
Will be possible to create Smart Element?
Smart Element - for example, it's lwcad object(file) which contains complete facade of building's side. We can place it at one of building's side. Or it will contain room(if will be possible osl room - http://julius-ihle.de/?p=2451)
Also it has any proxy features: level of detail, load at rendering and etc.

Viktor, I wanted to comment on something as a suggestion, I do not know if it's very far-fetched but I feel that this level of control is missing from the program to work much better. I do not know if you know the DesignToolBox plugin from Atelier Bump. There you can be strict with angles, reference guides etc ... all this very very useful and necessary within the architecture tools.

Hi,

Is there some compatibility issues between presets of LWCAD 3.x, 4.x and 5.x ?

I have some older files/presets for Shingles and Fences from LWCAD 4.x (or it's 3.x can't say for sure) and i copied all the *.s3d files inside LWCAD presets folders with their corresponding folder with rest of presets but LWCAD don't see any of them, it lists just default presets and nothing else.

Hello Viktor, first of all congratulations for the creation of the plugin for Max, if it works correctly this plugin for me will be an incredible tool, but (there is always a but) I am testing it on 3ds Max 2018 and it is extremely slow, I'll give you an example when I create rails, simple the viewport becomes almost impossible to move and is not precise, you have to convert them to editable mesh

FYI - I have one authorized paid license of the latest version of LWCAD which allows me to also take part in the LWCAD beta trials as further developments continue.

I currently have LWCAD (the latest beta version) installed in more than 1 version of one application (Cinema 4D - Versions 18 & 19) on one system (Mac OS X - 10.13). Is it possible to use LWCAD in each Cinema 4D application w

Having just transferred my licenses to the new website (really nice, by the way), I downloaded the 5.25 version from the emailed link.

Having clicked I Agree, I get next the panel that says Quick Install Settings:, but there is nothing in the panel - the only thing I can click is the Back button.

This is on Windows 10 64bit.

Hi

When you have Center snap set in the snapping panel and you draw a line to a rectangle object it won't snap to the center of the object. It works for curves, Circles and Polygons but not for the rectangle tool.

Steps

Draw a rectangle
Make sure center snap is activated in the snap panel
Draw a line to the center of the rectangle it won't snap to the center.
Just tested it in V4.51

Maybe I'm not getting how this works, and I'll admit I miss the simplicity and reliability of the old Vector Clone tool.

The thing I have the biggest problem with is cloning an object in the scene, but finding that I cannot adjust what face and point on the object I need to have aligned with the line. The fixed point where an object is cloned to the line is the centre of the bottom edge of t

Hi
I bought a model from a third party that was almost all tri's. When subdivided, it caused lots of non smooth surfaces, so I manually removed the 'extra' diagonal, to form tri's.
Easy but time consuming - Is there a tool/algorithm or easy way to this?

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

I just thought I would mention that in the most recent LWCAD newsletter I received it says a 2nd developer has now been hired and one of his jobs will be "porting LWCAD to other 3D applications". I'm hoping that it means LWCAD tools will be ported to Modo in the future. What do you think?

Often I get DWG plans from architects which have a lot of overlapping lines, meaning lines that sit on top of each other but don't share the end points, one is longer than the other. Curvs to surf command gets confused by this and it doesn't produce a good polygonal model. How to deal with this issue prior to curvs to surf command. I can fix this individualy with trim or sometimes the bool comman

I notice in the system requirements for LWCAD Lite it mentions r17 for Windows and r18 for OSX but not r17 for OSX. Is it in fact incompatible with that version? If so, are there any plans to make it available for r17 OSX? Thanks.

I spent a good deal of time recently thinking about the modeling tools I have at my disposal: Maya, LightWave Modeler, ZBrush, 3D-Coat. All in the context of development of models for a real-time rendering usage. The current strategies for producing high quality models in that context mostly revolve around producing a really high fidelity high resolution shape, then in one way or another deriving

Viktor, was just curious as to whether you are thinking about the possibility of the Library supporting UVs for its stored shapes.

I guess I'm trying to get my head around how the Library can be leveraged e.g. in a game asset production workflow, where the alternative might be creating an ordinary on-disk library of pre-built meshes that are already UV unwrapped and then with the possibility

Firstly, thanks so much for taking the time to port your architecturally focused suite in to C4D. We are sketchup / C4D architectural visualisers so its always great to see more related tools out there. I've watched some of the tutorials for LWCAD Lite and had a go with the final beta yesterday.

Some really good stuff in there but I have a few requests - many of which im sure are coming as I

Just downloaded trai. and I am having some issues.
I am using winows 10 3d max 2016.

The UCS auto snapping is not working. I followed your tutorial on making wall and a second floor then a roof.
The roof did not snap to the second floor. UCS would not update.

Then I tried just using the primitive boxes and adding more boxes on top. Again UCS would not update.

Perhaps someone can help me with the pipe tool. I am not new to LWCAD, but never really used the pipe tool before.
I cannot get the pipe tool to draw around corners?
Example, take a cube, start drawing on one plane or face then click on the next plane or face, in this case 90 degrees to the original. I will not turn. Always stays on the original plane. Tried resetting the tool, reinstalling
