Does anyone have a suggested workflow to get site contours into LW. I have tried to bring dxf file in with LWCAD but it seems to be a problem

I can't find road / lines and Crosswalks , but no roads tool. Only the two options under infrastructure.
What am i missing...help says it should be there but it isn't.
Any help would be appreciated. Its the same for Lightwave 2015.3 and 2018...
Thank you
Gary

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'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.

Hello ! I'm trying to draw curves on a mesh, I want the curves to "stick" to the surface and follow the shape of my mesh. I remember having done that with a previous verions of LWcad but I can't find the right settings in the snap to get the line tool to follow my background geometry anymore.

I'm not able to configure LWCAD menus in Lightwave 2019.1.5. I've manually installed plugins , but the menu configuration doesn't work. I've added a Youtube link below showing my attempt to configure. You can see that no menu items appear. Is there another way to display the plugins? I'm not able to use LWCAD at all. Thanks.

Dear LWCAD LightWave users.

First of all, I wish you all the best for 2020.

And I want to inform you about the status of LWCAD for LightWave.
The development is on schedule with a little delay and some adjustments.
But, you can expect the features to be delivered in 2020, as outlined in https://youtu.be/yQzudOrfXKk?t=2394 .
With the new MeshTR engine, you can look forward to many

It seems that with a spiral staircase greater than 360° the railings (or the curve associated with it) is not drawn greater that 360°. It draws the railing/curve evenly spaced between the top and bottom stairs but not the full length of the stairs.
