Hello ! I'm trying to draw curves on a mesh, I want the curves to "stick" to the surface and follow the shape of my mesh. I remember having done that with a previous verions of LWcad but I can't find the right settings in the snap to get the line tool to follow my background geometry anymore.
I'm not able to configure LWCAD menus in Lightwave 2019.1.5. I've manually installed plugins , but the menu configuration doesn't work. I've added a Youtube link below showing my attempt to configure. You can see that no menu items appear. Is there another way to display the plugins? I'm not able to use LWCAD at all. Thanks.

And I want to inform you about the status of LWCAD for LightWave. The development is on schedule with a little delay and some adjustments. But, you can expect the features to be delivered in 2020, as outlined in https://youtu.be/yQzudOrfXKk?t=2394 . With the new MeshTR engine, you can look forward to many
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.
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.
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?
