Re: Double Offset on Select Polylines

Sure. Here is the file. It's a bit of a mess, but you can clearly see the issue.

Thanks Clive.

Double Offset on Select Polylines

This is on Windows 8.1, QCAD version 3.14.3.0 (although it was happening on my old 3.12, too). I've got curves that I've converted (exploded) to polylines so that I can offset them. The Polyline offset works on some curves, I can choose either side, but on others it does a double offset. I'm not cha...

Repopulate QT Widget based on XML File

Andrew, The add-on that I created is working well. There is one thing I was not able to accomplish that needs to be done. Right now, the only data that is opened in the QT widget dialog is the last data set entered. I would like the ability to select any prior XML file to populate the widget for cha...

Re: Fearless Pattern Drafting with QCAD

Husky, You don't have any instructions, so I know this is pretty confusing. The xml files are created by the user prior to drafting. I included some pre-made measurement files you can use and included them in the FMScripts directory. Locate the xmlFiles directory in FMScripts and there are three dif...

Re: Fearless Pattern Drafting with QCAD

Husky, I think I've fixed the QT forms so they are more usable. I installed QCAD on my VMWare Windows to have a look. They still look really different in Windows and Mac. WindowsDialog.jpg MacDialog.jpg I hard coded the font size to 12, but the OS's are interpreting it differently. I think it will b...

Re: Fearless Pattern Drafting with QCAD

Husky, The forms look very different on your computer, which must be Windows or Linux. I'm on a Mac. My forms don't have that much blank space in them. You're right, the titles are ridiculously large and I should have addressed the dialog box title. You can tell that I was really avoiding the QT wor...

Fearless Pattern Drafting with QCAD

Fearless Pattern Drafting with QCAD I’ve created an add-on to QCAD that I would like to share. It drafts sewing basic block patterns from a list of measurements. Sorry for the long post, but I think an explanation might prove helpful. There are a few software products available that draft sewing pat...

Ellipse Created with ECMA

Andrew, I would like to draw an ellipse based on diameter with code. I located the REllipse in the documentation. REllipse::REllipse ( const RVector & center, const RVector & majorPoint, double ratio, double startParam, double endParam, bool reversed ) I don't know what these parameters are in refer...

Re: Slash & Spread Part II

Husky, Thank you for the great information. I will release it in the Work In Progress forum for feedback. My concern is that few people in the QCAD world are interested in garment patterns and aren't necessarily going to know if my scripts are working or not. I'm going to release it to my YouTube au...

QCAD Crash on Entity Copy

Andrew, I found this issue a couple days ago. If you generate a drawing with my script and then try to copy some of the elements, QCAD will crash. It doesn't matter if you are in deBug mode or not, it happens either way. If you generate the drawing, save it, close the drawing and then reopen, it wor...

Re: Slash & Spread Part II

Few people appreciate the complexities of garment sewing / pattern drafting. You have to take a flat 2-D shape (fabric, no depth per se) and turn it into a 3-D object that completely conforms to the body. Then once you have that figured out, you have to manipulate it (make it fancy) so it actually l...
