My LW crash some times when I use Join tool.
I have a license for LWCAD 4, having upgraded it from my original purchase of LWCAD 2.5 or earlier. Is there an upgrade to the current version from v4 available for purchase?
I'm struggling to find an installation guide that correletes to the files I'm downloading. Not sure where to put my files.
Testing the new Road TR I ran into problems I ran into problems right away.
First create simple closed nurbs curve. (clockwise point clicks)
Next activate Road Tr. Set random width. Change lanes from 0 to 2. Note that the number of lanes is wrong. Also, the surface normal is facing down.
Close tool and activate Freeze Nurbs. Seems to work OK but looks coarse, so try adapti
I have a model with about 12 different buildings. They all use the same windows. They have the same size polygons onto which the windows should be applied. Is there a way to apply a window preset to multiple polygons at once?
Does anyone have a suggested workflow to get site contours into LW. I have tried to bring dxf file in with LWCAD but it seems to be a problem

The Shingles tool in LWCAD 2018.31 for LW (Windows 64bit 2019.5) doesn't appear to work like the videos show.
In the video, the shingles apply only to a roof object and they look correct. For me, unless I select the top roof polygons, shingles are applied to the ENTIRE object. They are also angled weird and have end caps placed wrong.
Is there a timeline set for the cad 2020 release date yet?
I just bought LWCAD
I'm using LW 2015.3
I have an issue with the window tool. It seems to work properly except the extrusion does not fill the newly created hole in the walls. I have to do it my self once the window is in place
Any clue ?

I have a question about some shapes lib. I am running into an issue where I don't see the items in the shapes lib panels. It see the folders and list the shapes but doesn't draw the orange wires or even draw them in modeler when trying to use them. Is it because they are in sub folders?
The only way to make it work is by taking them out of sub folders and placing them in the same folder abov
I have both LW 2019 and 2020. I've tried installing LWCAD 2018 in both, but can't get it to show up in any of the menus. I followed the instructions and I found a youtube video that also showed how to install the menus, but they still don't show up on either LW install.
Can someone please help me figure out how to make this work?

I've tried all older versions of LW and it seems that LW 2019.0.3 and since 2019 released, the dimension tools don't seem to leave their distances in the viewport any longer.
LightWave version 2018 worked fine.
I have tried deleting all configs and starting from scratch in 2019 and it makes no difference. Also have tried all OpenGL modes to see if that made a difference, but it didn't.
I haven't used LW or LWCAD for a long time but wanted to pick it up again. When I try to download it I am told that my serial number is wrong although it's the one I received in a n email. I have tried to make contact by email but have had no response.
Can you please help.
When selecting between 'Line', 'Curve' and 'Round' inside the Pipe Tool.. 'Round' option no longer seems to work.
LWCAD 5.51 and LW 2015.3
Bug report raised. Could someone else confirm?
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.
Does anyone have problems importing Dxf files? I'm saving out of Acad a 2d Dxf to use with LWcad 5.51, sometimes is works most of the time it doesn't.
I've run into an issue while trying to edit a box made with Nurbs. Both the Offset Tool and simple Extrude aren't working for some reason. In the images below, I recreated a nurbs object similar to the one in the Ver 5 Nurbs introductory video. After rounding the edge, I was able to extrude and offset the surfaces without any problem. The middle box was made with the polygon option and it offset
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.

I'm having a great deal of fun using the patching tools, especially the network patch, but the one major limitation I keep running into is that it can only loft single segments. This is fine if all I'm lofting is simple curves or splines, but if I want to loft something more complicated such as a profile that has a straight line segment in it (see images below), then Patch will only
