circle drawing and patterns option

Postby marS » Mon Jul 15, 2013 11:11 am

First, thankyou for your work. I recently started using QCAD and I'm liking it.
I have 2 thoughts/suggestions:

1) tangent circle
Do you guys plan on adding the option to draw a circle tangent to two other circles? Like in the latest versions of LibreCad.

2) about drawing paterns
This is a bit complicated.. I wonder if it's possible at all to do.
Let's say I have a square and I'm drawing something on it. On another window I have the same square repeated horizontally and vertically.
Each time I draw something on the single square, in the window with the repeated square, I see the same drawing on each square.
This is useful because I don't have to copy and paste the drawing each time to see how it looks on a repeated pattern.
I hope it was clear. Maybe an add-on or a plug-in may do this I'm not sure.

Thanks again!!

I know maybe QCAD is more a professional, technical sw but having this option with the precision drawing of QCAD, would be perfect.. at least for me (I'm a graphic designer) Maybe for most users it's useless.

Do you guys know the site myoats?
Just with a few lines it generates paterns in a circle and shows the result in real time.
The only problem you have to draw online.. you don't have the precision of a CAD sw.

p.s.
I know this is even more complex than the one I wrote earlier, but it's just a thought :mrgreen:

Well let's see if the suggestion is liked by more people in this discussion, I'll add it there.
I don't know how such a feature could be named :roll:

I think I'll do a search also on Google to see if I find any video sw utility that lets you repeat a selected portion of the screen.
I'll let you know if I find anything :mrgreen:
