Created a nurbs cylinder and applied round to one end.

Result: the round has no nurbs surface, the edge is transparent and no visible nurb surfaces in viewed in Texture mode or Wire.

Any one else have this issue?

LW: 2018.0.6
LWCAD: 2018.3 RC1

I've always had issues using the Smart selection tool so hope someone can set me straight. With the new release, I'd really like to get a handle on some things.

I've watched the vid https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZBinS5QLaE
any number of times and I'm able to select edges OK, but when I try to deselect just one by clicking as Viktor shows, they all deselect. I've tried various key combo

I've been tracing out a background CAD mesh with Line tool (normally using a combination of Line and Spline).

When I hit the Curves to Surface to convert the shape to a polygon, half the time nothing is made and my drawn curves are gone. I used to think I didn't connect lines enough, but I have my Snap Panel set to only Points.

I've seen this happen on both my Mac & Win machine in LW

I've tried all older versions of LW and it seems that LW 2019.0.3 and since 2019 released, the dimension tools don't seem to leave their distances in the viewport any longer.

LightWave version 2018 worked fine.

I have tried deleting all configs and starting from scratch in 2019 and it makes no difference. Also have tried all OpenGL modes to see if that made a difference, but it didn't.

Hiya,

I have just upgraded to LWcad 2018, and I can't seem to get walls working with the LW grid snap option in snapping. It works with the fixed UCS grid setting but not the LW grid option, which I prefer as it adapts to my zoom level. Anyone notice this?

Thanks,

Mike

Hi

Does anyone have problems importing Dxf files? I'm saving out of Acad a 2d Dxf to use with LWcad 5.51, sometimes is works most of the time it doesn't.

Thanks

Using LW 2018.0.7 win 64 on Windows 10 with LWCAD 2018.1

Unless I'm doing something wrong, it seems railings when set to spline or curve the inner (sub posts) do not smooth the same as the top and bottom rails. So they do not connect properly.

I'm hoping I'm just doing something wrong...as this would be great if it worked properly. Loving all the options here.

Also the railing see

I think it would be very helpful to have on the SILL dialog section and checkbox for INSIDE and OUTSIDE. I know most commercial buildings will not have an outside sill but may have an inside sill. Giving them both their respective surfaces (as requested in another post) would be ideal.

Window Sill-In

Window Sill-Out

Otherwise I will use the window tool without a sill and have to c

It would be great if the SILL that was created had it's own surface by default. Currently it's the glass, and frame. Good thing is it comes unwelded so you can pick a piece and select connected. But once things are setup in my model (surface wise) would be great if this just came in correct as I draw them out. With their own surface.

Olá Viktor antes de tudo peço desculpas pela minha ignorância, pude ver o novo vídeo sobre o LWCad 2019, como não entendo inglês perfeitamente então gostaria de saber se essa versão pode ser baixada em algum lugar?

Ou ainda não está disponível para download?

Hi,

Is there a shortcut or maybe possibility of mouse/key combos which would invoke "close" command on Line tool ?

I often draw lines on top of Arch-Viz blueprints and i would like mouse/key combination for that "close" line tool.

RMB is nice for finishing current line and starting new one but i also need "close" button to have shortcut so that i don't need to go to numeric panel all

Hi Viktor,

Thanks for the roadmap video for LWCAD for LW. I'm glad at least some developers are willing to share their development direction

I just wanted to ask about booleans as they relate to NURBS surfaces again as I didn't see mention of that topic in your video.

Is there any possibility of a pivot displacement and rotation in the element tool? I made a standard steel library, since once the element is drawed you can move the pivots without deforming the shape, works very well for a non destructive architectural design process. Also helps a lot when you send the model to Rhino for documenting 2d. With a few adjustment lwcad could perfectly fill the gap be

When using clone to line on a line that is in the background layer LWCAD lays out clones only on the first segment of that line. If the line is in multiple segments ( Joined ) LWCAD does not use the whole line.

I've been using LWCad almost since the first version. This has been a problem since the Round tool was first created. When using it on oddly shaped intersections the corner part gets deleted. In the case below entire edges also get deleted. This leads to a lot of work to fix the problems.

It would be nice if LWCAD had a bend tool.

The current LW bend tool is hopless.

In addition it would be great if you could choose to adjust the bend to be parabolic in shape and possible some fall off?

Cheers

It would be very useful if it was possible to use snap across different objects.

At the moment snapping across layers is great but if the layers are in differnet objects it does not work, at least I cannot seem to get it to work.

Also the current snapping tool stops working if, after using the tool, you click to undo and try to use snapping again without restarting the tool, which is ann

Hello

I was attempting to create a complex Nurbs polygon using the Curvs To Surf tool but couldn't get it to work like it was demonstrated in the LWCAD 5 NURBS introduction video. I recreated a similar set a curves, but for some reason it is not making holes in the surface created even though I have make holes button checked.

Here is a screen grab of the Youtube video:
