Re: How to execute Purge command from the command line

There is no command line tool in QCAD to do that. You can create your own script and trigger: include("scripts/Pro/Block/PurgeBlocks/PurgeBlocks.js"); ... PurgeBlocks.purgeBlocks(di); Where di is the document interface. See also: https://qcad.org/en/tutorial-command-line-tool-scripts You'd typically...

Re: [Mac]dwg2pdf Qcad Crash And "Segmentation fault: 11" Error.

As far as I can tell, the attached file does not contain "±" but the characters 0x81 (not printable) and a "}", the latter which is causing the crash: "}" is ending a formatting group without previously starting a formatting group with "{". The crash will be fixed for the next release, but the text ...

Re: import drawing with tolerance

I've added a feature request at: https://qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1886 Note that you can add tolerances to dimensions in QCAD using the property editor (lower / upper limit). Whether this will be implemented this year depends largely on user interest and availability of time ...

Re: QCAD Application Font Looks Odd

This could be any number of things to do with X11, Qt, your window manager, etc. This is what I'd try first: - Move all libQt5* files from your QCAD directory into a temporary directory. QCAD comes with its own Qt libraries. By doing this, you can use your systems Qt libraries instead. This might fi...

How to show / hide the command line

From a QCAD user:
How can I show or hide the command line in QCAD where coordinates and commands can be entered?

Re: QCadCam Fails to load

Note that this could also be a problem with OpenGL support on your system. To check if that is the problem, please move the file C:\Program Files\QCADCAM\plugins\qcadgles3d.dll to your Desktop and try to start QCAD/CAM again. QCAD/CAM sill then start without OpenGL support (no 3D preview).

Re: import drawing with tolerance

Thanks. The tolerance has been defined as part of a dimension style. QCAD does not currently support dimension styles. The logo was likely an OLE object (a Windows specific object type that relies on another Windows application to be rendered). This is also not supported by QCAD. Perhaps you could i...

Re: How to get the list of layers in a drawing from the command line

I guess my question was more like where can I see the source for `dwginfo` in order to learn from it, but I guess the answer is that I cannot, since it is part of the pro bundle...? That's correct. However, there are plenty of other (script) sources available at: https://github.com/qcad/qcad/tree/m...

Is there a way to import the file with the tolerance on it.
I would need the DXF/DWG file (or the relevant part of it) to answer that.

Also is there a way to use the same type of dimensions we use in autocad?
No, QCAD currently has no support for alternative dimension styles.

Re: How to get the list of layers in a drawing from the command line

Why is this difference? A Windows GUI app like QCAD cannot write to stdout (a Windows limitation). The batch file streams to a file, then displays that file. I need to spit these to a text file or similar to use them somewhere else. Simply stream the output directly to the file you want instead of ...

Re: dwg2svg - Example

I'm assuming the expected size is about 12 inches wide (11.5"). Since the drawing unit is also inches, you'd only have to specify the input being inches (i.e. no scale): dwg2svg -f -g -u in -o 12.svg 12.dxf You can see if the SVG is correct by opening it in a text editor. Its header should look like...

Re: How to get the list of layers in a drawing from the command line

You can use the command line tool "dwginfo". There is currently no batch or bash script for it, but you can invoke it as follows:

Code: Select all

qcad -no-gui -allow-multiple-instances -autostart "scripts/Pro/Tools/DwgInfo/DwgInfo.js" -l
Where -l lists all layers.
