The special situation requires special prices. All LWCAD prices will decrease significantly until the end of the current pandemic. Also, users with LWCAD 2018 (without the free 2020 update) can now pre-order the upgrade to ver. 2020
The development of LWCAD continues as planned. The free update to LWCAD 2018.5
I have a model with about 12 different buildings. They all use the same windows. They have the same size polygons onto which the windows should be applied. Is there a way to apply a window preset to multiple polygons at once?
I can't find road / lines and Crosswalks , but no roads tool. Only the two options under infrastructure. What am i missing...help says it should be there but it isn't. Any help would be appreciated. Its the same for Lightwave 2015.3 and 2018... Thank you Gary
The Shingles tool in LWCAD 2018.31 for LW (Windows 64bit 2019.5) doesn't appear to work like the videos show. In the video, the shingles apply only to a roof object and they look correct. For me, unless I select the top roof polygons, shingles are applied to the ENTIRE object. They are also angled weird and have end caps placed wrong.
I have a question about some shapes lib. I am running into an issue where I don't see the items in the shapes lib panels. It see the folders and list the shapes but doesn't draw the orange wires or even draw them in modeler when trying to use them. Is it because they are in sub folders?
The only way to make it work is by taking them out of sub folders and placing them in the same folder abov
I have both LW 2019 and 2020. I've tried installing LWCAD 2018 in both, but can't get it to show up in any of the menus. I followed the instructions and I found a youtube video that also showed how to install the menus, but they still don't show up on either LW install.
Can someone please help me figure out how to make this work?
I haven't used LW or LWCAD for a long time but wanted to pick it up again. When I try to download it I am told that my serial number is wrong although it's the one I received in a n email. I have tried to make contact by email but have had no response. Can you please help. Thanks
Hello ! I'm trying to draw curves on a mesh, I want the curves to "stick" to the surface and follow the shape of my mesh. I remember having done that with a previous verions of LWcad but I can't find the right settings in the snap to get the line tool to follow my background geometry anymore.
I've run into an issue while trying to edit a box made with Nurbs. Both the Offset Tool and simple Extrude aren't working for some reason. In the images below, I recreated a nurbs object similar to the one in the Ver 5 Nurbs introductory video. After rounding the edge, I was able to extrude and offset the surfaces without any problem. The middle box was made with the polygon option and it offset
I'm not able to configure LWCAD menus in Lightwave 2019.1.5. I've manually installed plugins , but the menu configuration doesn't work. I've added a Youtube link below showing my attempt to configure. You can see that no menu items appear. Is there another way to display the plugins? I'm not able to use LWCAD at all. Thanks.

I'm having a great deal of fun using the patching tools, especially the network patch, but the one major limitation I keep running into is that it can only loft single segments. This is fine if all I'm lofting is simple curves or splines, but if I want to loft something more complicated such as a profile that has a straight line segment in it (see images below), then Patch will only
Add drawing levels/elevations so when drafting on the selected level, things are place on that level. In pro arch programs, this is a given. Or at least make the Z level, when changed to place a wall up to another level, keep that number instead of having to re-enter it every point.
More dimension abilities. Very important. Printable.
And I want to inform you about the status of LWCAD for LightWave. The development is on schedule with a little delay and some adjustments. But, you can expect the features to be delivered in 2020, as outlined in https://youtu.be/yQzudOrfXKk?t=2394 . With the new MeshTR engine, you can look forward to many
I am very sad to announce that the LWCAD 3ds Max version is officially terminated.
Main reason of the termination are very poor sales of the plugin. Although the 3dsMax has the biggest user community, very small portion actually using purchased license. Combined with AutoDesk's pricing policy (milking users), there is very little space for a small third-party developers to succeed with
