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.
Crash when executing a SUB operation using the Line tool (crash report sent to NewTek)
1 - Create a simple cube with the Box tool 2 - From e.g. the Top view, enable the LWCAD Line tool, set mode to SUB 3 - LCLICK outside the mesh to establish the UCS plane and starting point 4 - LCLICK outside the mesh to e.g. cut off a corner of the cube (crash)
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.
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
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.
It was already the case with LWcad previous releases when snapping features: LW cad actually sees hidden geometries (in active layer or background). With V5 and following and the new selection system this problem becomes really unworkable around, eg: ctrl click empty space on screen selects all geometry, even what is hidden; when working on an heavy layer/object this turns into a nightm
Viktor please go here: http://forums.newtek.com/showthread.php?152975-LWCad-5-2-snap-move-question to check out an issue with move snap in 5.2. Everything you need is in that link. I like the clone feature of the new move snap but it just won't move geometry as effectively as 4.51. Please consider some adjustments to the tool. Thanks.
When you use the move snap tool with cloning, you can't adjust the height of the clone.
Create a box with the box tool Us the move snap tool Press "n" on the keyboard to open the numeric panel Turn on cloning Clone your object going down from the top viewport Now go over to the Right viewport Try clicking on the handle to make your clones go upwards or step The
