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.
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.
I have been looking at a lot of architecture videos online and wondering about adding a simple radio checkbox and value entry fields for cost calculation of basic primitives. Perhaps even a selector that could asses the volume and cost per cubic unit of a given solid. Ok thank you
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.
The current OpenGL button are hard to see on a grey backdrop and hi-res display. I suggest giving us the ability to change the text size (as well as the button size) and also pick colours we like, rather than just use red and green (neither of which works that well on a mid-grey canvas).
Also, when you click the '2D' OGL button it disappears, rather than change colour and remains as a toggle
Creating a road center-line is fairly simple but could be improved. (way better than native tools) That got me thinking about the more general case of lines that are tangent to circular arcs. The type of curve I am talking about is a series of straight segments and arc segments that always have the characteristic of being tangent and the arc segments are circular arcs.
It would be awesome if LWCAD could somehow deal with .stp curves. Right now, to use CAD data in Lightwave it has to be converted to mesh and often we get errors in smoothing, flipping polys or geometry missing. Being able to use the nurbs curves would be a dream come true.
It would be really nice if LWCad had dimensioning capabilities much like Solidworks or Inventor. Create a model and then dimension it and save out a DWG or even just a PDF and be able to print it on a big plotter/printer. Yeah that would be cool.
It would be sweet if several of LWCads tools could do similar boolean functions as Hard ops plugin does for Belender. Maybe it could be a standalone seperate tool. Based on several of the modelling tools from lwcad?
It seems like at least several of similar functions are comparable. Maybe just needs more live style boolean tools? As well as more edge rounding tools. For any type of edges?
