1_Predictions for LWCad will start working with multiple Layers.

2_Predictions for LWCad will start working with LW Symmetry or create your own and more intelligent symmetry working with all axis (XYZ).

3_When we can control the curves on all axes.

Thanks Viktor.

Is possible to have tool that covers all common shapes of beams (IPE, HEB, UPN, rectangle, reticulated, etc) in a parametric manner and save the preset?(like the new windows tool or railing tool)?. Would be nice if is possible to draw it like the pipe tool.

I've always had issues using the Smart selection tool so hope someone can set me straight. With the new release, I'd really like to get a handle on some things.

I've watched the vid https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZBinS5QLaE
any number of times and I'm able to select edges OK, but when I try to deselect just one by clicking as Viktor shows, they all deselect. I've tried various key combo

I've been tracing out a background CAD mesh with Line tool (normally using a combination of Line and Spline).

When I hit the Curves to Surface to convert the shape to a polygon, half the time nothing is made and my drawn curves are gone. I used to think I didn't connect lines enough, but I have my Snap Panel set to only Points.

I've seen this happen on both my Mac & Win machine in LW

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.

Hiya,

I have just upgraded to LWcad 2018, and I can't seem to get walls working with the LW grid snap option in snapping. It works with the fixed UCS grid setting but not the LW grid option, which I prefer as it adapts to my zoom level. Anyone notice this?

Thanks,

Mike

Olá Viktor antes de tudo peço desculpas pela minha ignorância, pude ver o novo vídeo sobre o LWCad 2019, como não entendo inglês perfeitamente então gostaria de saber se essa versão pode ser baixada em algum lugar?

Ou ainda não está disponível para download?

Hi,

Is there a shortcut or maybe possibility of mouse/key combos which would invoke "close" command on Line tool ?

I often draw lines on top of Arch-Viz blueprints and i would like mouse/key combination for that "close" line tool.

RMB is nice for finishing current line and starting new one but i also need "close" button to have shortcut so that i don't need to go to numeric panel all
