Now that Lightwave will continue with future development, is there a chance that by working with LightWave Digital two display features that were broken with LWCAD 2018 could be fixed?
The first is Isolines being visible again on Nurbs surfaces when Show Cages is checked on in the Display Options.
The second being able see your color in the color swatch for the Surface Random tool and b
Hi, Carlos here.
I hope that in the future we will have features like a floor generator, I use Array for that but I hope for something more specific with presets with wooden floors, mosaics, tiles, etc.
I miss something like a tool to make roads quickly in LWCad.
I also notice that LWCad has released few cad tools in recent years.
I hope I'm not asking too much friend.
Why LWCad cant impor DXF on my LightWave

I already reported this issue, but if somebody could confirm.
When creating an arc from 3 points of an existing circle, the result is a straight line. All is fine as long as the 3rd point is near a point from the circle, but once it's on the point, the arc becomes a straight line.
This happens with any circle object (LW2020.03/LWCAD 2023.00).
So I already submitted a bug report for this but wanted to see if anyone else had the issue. I am using Lightwave 2018.0.7 and LWCad 2020.1 LW
I made an arc shape primitive and was trying to use the profile tool to just have a simple square box follow along the curve. With the tool active I go to select the arc shape, sometimes it will work just fine but while adjusting settings lightwave wil
is there any statement for LWCAD for lightwave?
Official dead or official under development?
Please Victor, bring some light :-)

when adding a widow into ArchViz the glass is not being saved so when I put it into a wall the glass is not modelled. I have found the problem when I am making model windows I was making the glass from lwcad boxes which was not rendering or saving don,t know why but when I modelled from lightwave boxes all good.
what's the future for lwcad for lightwave 3d is it dead. Could you try and bring it to one version of Blender say version 3.0 has I know it keeps getting updated with Blender you can download old versions so if you pick just one version it can be downloaded in the furture.
I can't figure out how to position the tools like in some videotutorials
non riesco a impostare il materiale v-ray nel mio caso su una porta che ho creato, a differenza di Windows in cui c'è solo la voce del materiale.
Why does my shape library have 3 and 4 what appear to be duplicates?! I just deleted the files in my user/prefs/wtools/presets. Added new ones and they're duplicated again.
Is it possible to give us a better bevel tool than LW native bevel tool as it is to destructive.
i have an archviz c4d scene, with imported dwg plans etc and many objects in it, whenever i try to use any tool of lwcad/architron it freezes c4d, i have to force quit it.
in new simple scenes it works as it should
how can that be solved?
doesnt it work in bigger scenes?
Things have been quite for awhile; can we have a update?
Is way to render in Dimensions, placed in LightWave Modeler?
Can not see or use all of numeric panel when creating pipes. What am I doing wrong? Screen is set to 4k but still not enough room to see the complete panel. I am using LWCAD 2020.033 beta.
I have been thinking about this for a bit of time now, i would love to see a greebling system in LWCad.
Random placement of assets like AC Units, Decorations, Windows, Doors, roof equipment and such.
Hello, is there a way to keep the element (instance) name as a part after freeze? would be usesful for export it to Rhino for documentation
I have two curves for an O letter, one for the outside and the other for the inside. I want to know if I can turn those curves into a NURBS flat surface with a hole. The Legacy Curves to Surface button doesn't do anything.
Is there a solution to devide lw cad curve into segmenth with a constant lenght? So each point should have the same distance towards the next one. Iam pretty sure there is an easy way to get this in lw-cad.
Version : LW CAD 2020.01
My target is to get a lw curve with a constant point distance for sending this one to Layout and create Spline Control from this.
Thanks for your support

The LWCAD Menu Bar Icon Configuration In [C4D R21 & R23] Is Collapsed - The LWCAD Menu Bar Icon Configuration In [C4D S22] Is Expanded. Is there an option to collapse or expand the icons within the menu bar according to the end-user's preference?

I am having and have always had a problem with the background layer snapping. As I am using the line tool to trace over some lines in the background to create nurbs patches it is not snapping, I have played with the setting in the snap panel but it seems to ignore the background.
Hi Viktor. So I am a beginner C4D user with a background in Architectural Design. I have installed other Plugins into C4D easily (I can see these updated under "Plugins 4D). But I am just not luck with LWCAD. Maybe its not working for me because I am trying to use a trial version of LWCAD and I have not bought the Licence yet?
Thanks for your assistance.
As the title says. Join is a very nice tool, but when I hide geometry and use it, LW crashes almost everytime with a critical error. (LW 2018.0.7, LWCAD 2020.1)
How does the new update work with Shape Libs from older versions, I see all my Furniture etc. in the instance Tab, but cannot add them. I can select a Window or sometimes a door handle and I can then replace them all with a bookshelf, but thats not how it used to be.
How can I add furniture, deco, Columms etc as easy as stairs, fence, railing, roads, and roof?

After placing the LWCAD 2018.92 C4D Beta folder into the Cinema 4D R23 plugin folder and launching the application, it does not appear in the extensions menu.
I also tried placing the same folder via the preferences option (within the edit menu), but that yielded the same result.
