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!

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!

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 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

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
