When using clone to line on a line that is in the background layer LWCAD lays out clones only on the first segment of that line. If the line is in multiple segments ( Joined ) LWCAD does not use the whole line.

I really like the shingles tool. I often use it in combination with the MultiTexture plugin to give each shingle a slightly different color. Therefore each shingle needs a different matID. So to make this tool faster to work with, please implement an option to give each shingle a different matID.

Thanks

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.

A question as to how to reset the volume calculation on an object.
I have made changes to an object and the volume is no longer correct but I can't clear it to re-calculate the volume.

How do I clear the volume numbers and start over. I have tried copy and pasting to a new object but the calculations come along as well.

Thank you,
Wade

i went from lightwave 9.61 to lightwave 2018 and so for me, i have not had a situation where the installer actually worked for me.

it would be cool if the installer tried to identify the directories by itself but if it can't find them, it gave the user the ability to manually select the directories and then continue auto-setup.

manually installing isn't a huge deal but it does involve a f

hi viktor,

i noticed this while i was playing with the new update and encountered it a couple of times in passing now but just figured i must be doing something wrong... but i do think it's lwcad-

when i perform a round on the top of a rectangular piece of geometry, the edges at the corners pull apart. even on corners where it's not visibly tearing as shown, the vertices end up unwelded.

hi,

so i'm still currently on the 3.x version and i'm looking to upgrade soon but was wondering if in the later versions, there's a way of changing the scale of library objects when the library objects are invoked during tools like cloning a library object on a polygon.

i forgot the exact name of tool but there is one tool that allows you to "spray" a library object on an existing poly an

Hello
Will be possible to create Smart Element?
Smart Element - for example, it's lwcad object(file) which contains complete facade of building's side. We can place it at one of building's side. Or it will contain room(if will be possible osl room - http://julius-ihle.de/?p=2451)
Also it has any proxy features: level of detail, load at rendering and etc.

Viktor, I wanted to comment on something as a suggestion, I do not know if it's very far-fetched but I feel that this level of control is missing from the program to work much better. I do not know if you know the DesignToolBox plugin from Atelier Bump. There you can be strict with angles, reference guides etc ... all this very very useful and necessary within the architecture tools.

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.

Hello Viktor, first of all congratulations for the creation of the plugin for Max, if it works correctly this plugin for me will be an incredible tool, but (there is always a but) I am testing it on 3ds Max 2018 and it is extremely slow, I'll give you an example when I create rails, simple the viewport becomes almost impossible to move and is not precise, you have to convert them to editable mesh

FYI - I have one authorized paid license of the latest version of LWCAD which allows me to also take part in the LWCAD beta trials as further developments continue.

I currently have LWCAD (the latest beta version) installed in more than 1 version of one application (Cinema 4D - Versions 18 & 19) on one system (Mac OS X - 10.13). Is it possible to use LWCAD in each Cinema 4D application w

Hi

When you have Center snap set in the snapping panel and you draw a line to a rectangle object it won't snap to the center of the object. It works for curves, Circles and Polygons but not for the rectangle tool.

Steps

Draw a rectangle
Make sure center snap is activated in the snap panel
Draw a line to the center of the rectangle it won't snap to the center.
Just tested it in V4.51

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

Hi
I bought a model from a third party that was almost all tri's. When subdivided, it caused lots of non smooth surfaces, so I manually removed the 'extra' diagonal, to form tri's.
Easy but time consuming - Is there a tool/algorithm or easy way to this?

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

I just thought I would mention that in the most recent LWCAD newsletter I received it says a 2nd developer has now been hired and one of his jobs will be "porting LWCAD to other 3D applications". I'm hoping that it means LWCAD tools will be ported to Modo in the future. What do you think?

Often I get DWG plans from architects which have a lot of overlapping lines, meaning lines that sit on top of each other but don't share the end points, one is longer than the other. Curvs to surf command gets confused by this and it doesn't produce a good polygonal model. How to deal with this issue prior to curvs to surf command. I can fix this individualy with trim or sometimes the bool comman

Hello guys!

Because some people are getting a wrong idea that we are drifting from LightWave,
I have decided that it is right time to inform you about our current status and our long term plans with LWCAD specially LigthWave version.

LWCAD LITE(Max,C4d) versus LWCAD (LightWave).
As you have noticed we are heavily updating LWCAD Lite version while LW version seems to be dormant. This

I notice in the system requirements for LWCAD Lite it mentions r17 for Windows and r18 for OSX but not r17 for OSX. Is it in fact incompatible with that version? If so, are there any plans to make it available for r17 OSX? Thanks.
