Hi Victor,
I have a question about profiler and engraver tools.
I use them very intensively with custom profiles, in past relases were possible to keep the "origina size" of the profile with a very useful button.
Is in yours devenlope program to bring back that useful function or there is an "hidden" shortcut to obtain the same result in present relase?

Thanks in advance!!

I am trying to understand the Knife tool. I asked for a feature from Viktor for a tool that did more than one cut. I can see that it has 10 lines as specified and the distance between each is specified, but it still only make the one cut. I'm trying to get it to make all the cuts, or is this not what i thought the tool would be.

Hi, I'm using LWcad 5.5 and LW 2015.3. I'm using the shingle tool and when I click on another preset from the library the shingle is not changing. This is even after getting out of the tool, starting fresh and choosing a new preset before I apply the tool.
I've checked the preset path and its good. The preview of the shingle is there. The only odd thing is when I click on another preset a smal

I spent a good deal of time recently thinking about the modeling tools I have at my disposal: Maya, LightWave Modeler, ZBrush, 3D-Coat. All in the context of development of models for a real-time rendering usage. The current strategies for producing high quality models in that context mostly revolve around producing a really high fidelity high resolution shape, then in one way or another deriving

This might be hard to explain, but here goes.

Using the Box command (other commands do this now as well), after drawing the first box it used to be (v4, v5?) that when I would right click, it would finish the tool and be able to start the next box at the same height (or depth, or width depending on in which view port I started) location as the previous box. Now, it starts the box at the origi

So I went through all the lightwave cad 5 videos a few times and I still can't figure out how to make a simple patch. Lofting was easy enough but I feel it doesn't give quite the amount of control I need. In one video I see a grid of splines already made ( I guess with the line tool?) and then I see patches begin drawn easily. . . I don't understand how the splines were connected in order to make

I draw out points as I used to do but all I get is a box or polygonal shape, no arc. If I add an object and then use Arc but turn on slice or add or intersect, it then becomes an Arc.
What am I doing wrong?

LWCAD 5.5 ROAD LINE crashes on 2015.3 and 2018
not when using straight line tool, but when set to spline or curve mode.
Works with a straight line option.
Just started playing with cross walk and it crashed also when playing with sizing parameters.
Tried unistalling from 2015 and 2018. Reboot, then installed 2018 only..still crashed.
Tried installing 2015..same still crashes.

Hi,

Is there some compatibility issues between presets of LWCAD 3.x, 4.x and 5.x ?

I have some older files/presets for Shingles and Fences from LWCAD 4.x (or it's 3.x can't say for sure) and i copied all the *.s3d files inside LWCAD presets folders with their corresponding folder with rest of presets but LWCAD don't see any of them, it lists just default presets and nothing else.

Maybe I'm not getting how this works, and I'll admit I miss the simplicity and reliability of the old Vector Clone tool.

The thing I have the biggest problem with is cloning an object in the scene, but finding that I cannot adjust what face and point on the object I need to have aligned with the line. The fixed point where an object is cloned to the line is the centre of the bottom edge of t
