Hi Victor, this is not primary, but I think it could be useful to report a little note.
I work with a 4K screen and the installer window is very, very small as in other few application. Of course I can fix it form the files's properties and in that way it works, but I'd want to inform you.

EDIT: I've just notice that the problem is there for the tool pop-up window, as showed in the screenshot.

Can you please make a screenshot from your 4K monitor (with installer) ?

Regarding pop-up window, this screen doesn't look like 4K monitor.

Hi Victor, sorry for late, I've just read.
Here's the screenshot of the problem, the solution settings, and the fixed installer. The popup problems is still there.
Let me knoe if you need something more. All the best and happy Easter.

Viktor, about the new dynamic presets system, I was wondering if it could work in road / infrastructure construction. Imagine if we could set the number of lanes, cross sloping and so on (according to standards) or lay down train tracks in one go. Save presets and you have point-and-click highways, freeways, boulevards...

Yes of course! New preset system is prepared exactly for this.
There will be new parametric tools for infrastructure(roads, sidewalks, bridges..), terrain tools, and placing everything into terrain. Everything based on parametric NURBS.

In current LWCAD 2018 cycle you can expect more roofing(gutters) and NURBS surfacing tools.
Train and infrastructure tools are scheduled for LWCAD 2019.

Pipe tool appears to be broken, both in polygon and nurbs mode.

Fixed! (next beta)

When there is a LWCAD line in a model say the distance line it slows down everything in Layout significantly, just one simple line. Manipulating the object with this line in Layout is very slow. I've seen other people on the Newtek forum say it slows them down too, going into Freezing object iterations. ( that's what it says in the Layout status line)

In empty modeler if I start drawing some curves and moving them around it is super fast. But if I load another model (cca 0.5 million polys) so I have 2 models opened and get back to the first model with just a couple of curves, editing those curves and using LWCAD in general becomes considerably slower. Why is that so ? The second model is just loaded in Modeler but I am not working on it nor using it as a background layer.

This is out of my control. You should report this bug to Newtek.

Oi Viktor Eu tenho um pequeno problema sem o meu LWCAD 2018 para LW2018, espero que voc & ecirc; possa

This was already fixed in previous beta.

Because it is processing those additional 0.5 million polygons.
I'll check, if I can do something about it.

LWCAd 2018 Beta, crashes LW2018 the same problem with LWCAD 5.51 AND LW 2015.3 Round crashes Lightwave every time I try to use it on a Nurbs surface.

This is not a system issue seems to be a plugin bug. I'd like to see a fix for LWCad 5.51 before even considering an upgrade when 2018 finally comes out.

step 1 created a nurbs line object (closed)
step 2 converted to Nurbs Surface
step 3 applied extrude worked with 2018
step 4 accessed Round and when I attempted to round an edge.... LW2018 crashes (repeatable) which means the plugin too unstable to use.

Edge to Railing tool problems

Testing the LWCAD 2018 Beta and having issues with the Edge to Railing tool. Curves are joined but is behaving like separate elements. Curves from spiral stair tool is used together with the line tool to make complete curves where railing should cover stairs and 1st floor.

Maybe I am doing it wrong? Please have a look at the video:

Hold CTRL key when selecting connected curves. It will be fully selected with a first click.
If still problem, please use support, and send me the object by email.

Hi Viktor.

Thanks for helping out with the Edge Railing tool.

Just tried the new 2018.05 RC and now it seems there's some wiggles in how railings are smoothed/constructed. I just ran the installer and asked it to overwrite the current installation.

And the joint on the curved railing to the linear railing are really funky. Should we avoid more complex curves when using this tool for now?

See the picture (both railing and subrailings are wavy - wasn't like that before):

Thanks for update Viktor, like new railing tools, also looking forward to next iteration with nurbs smile.
