I think the same linnemann. Since I got used to QCAD I don't want to go back to any other 2d cad software!

Re: Modify simple polyline rectangles

Hi Andreas,

I'm pleased you've got the QCAD book it is a great way to learn about 2D cad drafting and as you say there is often more than one way to draw something up. Thank you so much for sharing what you are using QCAD for, very interesting.

Many thanks

Re: Modify simple polyline rectangles

Hi Andreas,

I would definitely suggest the QCAD book, it will instill the underlying principles for 2D cad drafting and the correct methods for most likely all of your drafting needs for many years to come.

What are you using QCAD for?

Many thanks

Clive

Re: Insert table tool for QCAD

Thanks for your feedback, however this would only be good for a table with a set number of rows and columns!

Re: Stretch button

Hello Flynny, The stretch command will work with contours. You will need to make the elements which make up the window rectangle a continuous polyline first. 1.Use the divide tool to define the two short ends first: stretch 1.jpg 2.Now select all four sides of the rectangle which make up the window ...

Re: Insert table tool for QCAD

Hi Husky, I think you are not understanding me correctly, I am talking about a simple insert table where you choose how may columns and rows then fill in with text, nothing more complicated than this! If we can already insert a rectangle at a given size, maybe this could be expanded to inserting a r...

Friday Humour

Goodness me, the last Friday humour joke I posted was on April 25th 2014, almost 4 years ago, how time really does fly past!

Re: Tracing vintage model glider plans - curved elements

Hello Robert, For me what I do is set up a new dedicated layer called 'Trace' with a colour of Red and an appropriate line weight, then I use all the drawing tools available to trace over. In particular for curved drafting I use the spline tool with the various snap options and also with a free snap...

Insert table tool for QCAD

I have added a feature request for a dedicated table tool for QCAD, a tool to insert tables for cutting lists or bill of materials and so on. Do others think this is a good idea? You can find the feature request here: http://www.qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1721 Many thanks Clive
