The LWCAD Menu Bar Icon Configuration In [C4D R21 & R23] Is Collapsed - The LWCAD Menu Bar Icon Configuration In [C4D S22] Is Expanded. Is there an option to collapse or expand the icons within the menu bar according to the end-user's preference?

I am having and have always had a problem with the background layer snapping. As I am using the line tool to trace over some lines in the background to create nurbs patches it is not snapping, I have played with the setting in the snap panel but it seems to ignore the background.

Hi Viktor. So I am a beginner C4D user with a background in Architectural Design. I have installed other Plugins into C4D easily (I can see these updated under "Plugins 4D). But I am just not luck with LWCAD. Maybe its not working for me because I am trying to use a trial version of LWCAD and I have not bought the Licence yet?
Thanks for your assistance.

Hi,

How does the new update work with Shape Libs from older versions, I see all my Furniture etc. in the instance Tab, but cannot add them. I can select a Window or sometimes a door handle and I can then replace them all with a bookshelf, but thats not how it used to be.

How can I add furniture, deco, Columms etc as easy as stairs, fence, railing, roads, and roof?

Trying LWCAD on LW 9.6, I can't complete the last step in the instructions (#6):

Open the “LWCAD Options” panel and set the "presets path" to point to the "Presets" folder.

I've added all four menu's:
menu1 Create.cfg
menu2 Modify.cfg
menu3 Edit.cfg
menu4 ArchViz.cfg

but still can't find it, please help!

Operating System: macOS Catalina - 10.15.7
Cinema 4D Version: Cinema 4D R23.008 (Build RB323902)

After placing the LWCAD 2018.92 C4D Beta folder into the Cinema 4D R23 plugin folder and launching the application, it does not appear in the extensions menu.

I also tried placing the same folder via the preferences option (within the edit menu), but that yielded the same result.

Hi! I have 2018.31 Was there ever a 2018.5 release? Or was that moved into the 2020 release. I'm really interested in the newest TR nurbs tools. Thanks for your hard work on this.

I have a license for LWCAD 4, having upgraded it from my original purchase of LWCAD 2.5 or earlier. Is there an upgrade to the current version from v4 available for purchase?

Thank you!

Testing the new Road TR I ran into problems I ran into problems right away.

First create simple closed nurbs curve. (clockwise point clicks)


Next activate Road Tr. Set random width. Change lanes from 0 to 2. Note that the number of lanes is wrong. Also, the surface normal is facing down.


Close tool and activate Freeze Nurbs. Seems to work OK but looks coarse, so try adapti

Hi all,

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?

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?

Thanks
