When creating a polygonal Box or Cylinder/Cone, it would be great if there was a numeric panel option for adding uniform segments. At present the only way is to add them using LW's Bandsaw Pro, and that doesn't work on LWCAD's Cones.
Also, it would be useful if you could hold the Shift or Ctrl key to drag out uniform sized 1x1x1 objects.
I would like to request the addition of a LWCAD version of the Lathe tool. Since Lightwaves native tool doesn't work on LWCAD curves, it is necessary to convert them to LW lines in order to do the revolving, and then only in polygons. Also LW's tool doesn't have the benefit of LWCAD's snapping and is hard to use at times.
I've come up with a work around where I draw a profile using
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.
The current betas are not installing for R21 on systems without AVX ie older 2012 Mac Pros running either Windows or Mac Os. It is a common issue affecting a lot of C4D plugins. Please set AVX to off and SSE2 to on.
I am using lwcad 2018.3 and lightwave 2019.1.4 and I can save a window design to archviz and it appears in the library but then when I close it and then re- open it is not saved can someone help me on where im going wrong
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.
New project, create a couple of planes, a circle, and a line, making sure they intersect. Grab the line tool, set INT snapping, and try to snap to intersected lines. I re-installed 2018.1 and it worked fine. Then re-installed 2018.3 again and it didn't work. All the other snap types work fine.
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 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?
I think it would be very helpful to have on the SILL dialog section and checkbox for INSIDE and OUTSIDE. I know most commercial buildings will not have an outside sill but may have an inside sill. Giving them both their respective surfaces (as requested in another post) would be ideal.
Otherwise I will use the window tool without a sill and have to c
It would be great if the SILL that was created had it's own surface by default. Currently it's the glass, and frame. Good thing is it comes unwelded so you can pick a piece and select connected. But once things are setup in my model (surface wise) would be great if this just came in correct as I draw them out. With their own surface.
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?
Is there any possibility of a pivot displacement and rotation in the element tool? I made a standard steel library, since once the element is drawed you can move the pivots without deforming the shape, works very well for a non destructive architectural design process. Also helps a lot when you send the model to Rhino for documenting 2d. With a few adjustment lwcad could perfectly fill the gap be
