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.

If you c

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.


I have tried creat

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 great if LWCAD could feature a nice bend tool. The native lw bend gets bad results and is not easy to use.

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?

Hi,

It would be great to have a rope / chain tool with non-destructive workflow.

It should come with some preset models of ropes / chains, but as LWCad allows, create our own too.

For ropes, it could be interesting to be able to specify the number of strands and bundles, rotation, ...

Greetings,
Sigurd

Hi,
Is there a way for the Round tool to behave like the Rounder tool from Lightwave when the "OGL poly" option is activated ?
It creates a liitle bevel on the rounded polygons, so that reflections look accurate when rendering.
Thx !

I would love to see support to import STP or some other cad format since we now have spline support. At the moment I'm using MOI3d to convert to a 3d support, but being able to directly import would be awesome.

Export would be nice too, but not as high a priority for me.
