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!

Anyways here's the joke.

'If a cowboy rides into town on Friday and three days later leaves on Friday, how does he do it?


Answer - The horse's name is Friday! :wink:

Re: Tracing vintage model glider plans - curved elements

Robert,
Changing the line thickness will definitely help, after a while I became quite proficient with tracing to point where I could produce drafting for production output.

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 C...

Re: User Template Border HOwTo

If your 1:1 drawings are not so big in real life then of course you could fit them into a bespoke size border as you say, but imagine you are drawing an Areoplane, then in this case it wouldn't work so scaling down and fitting into a common size border would be the way to go. If you are the only one...

Re: User Template Border HOwTo

Well done for working things out. What you actually did was entirely correct, in that, you always draft up in real 1:1 scale, then scale the drawings appropriately to the border size you need to work with. Commonly scales would be 1:1, 1:2, 1:5, 1:10, 1:20, 1:50, 1:100 and so on- of course you could...
