Linetype 'Fenceline 1' corrupted by CXF upgrade

Win7pro/32bit QCADpro 3.22.1.2 I especially post this in the QCAD Troubleshooting and Problems so pro users can fix this immediately. I could report it as a bug too if prefered. The '0x0043 CIRC1' entry of the linetypes was corrupted in coding it to CXFversion 3. This was a full arc radius 1 at x,y ...

Re: Saving QCAD 3 CXF fonts

Saw that on github.
Got still the same coding with 3.22.1.2
Do I wait for the next release or do I load a snapshot for that.
It has no use to send you mixed codings.

Re: Saving QCAD 3 CXF fonts

The file I posted here:
https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=6379
was uploaded by Andrew to github:
https://github.com/qcad/qcad/tree/master/fonts
and Notepad++ reports this one as UTF-8-BOM

Any thoughts?

Saving QCAD 3 CXF fonts

Win7pro 32bit QCAD 3.22.1.0 (3.22.1) Revision: 46d6499 Stumbled on the fact that saving QCAD 3 CXF fonts they are encoded as ANSI. All installed CXF fonts with version 3.22.1.0 (3.22.1) Revision: 46d6499 are encoded as UTF-8. This is how it is reported by Notepad++. Also, while saving a CXF font the...

CXF fonts upgrade

From version 3.22.1 on CXF fonts are editable and support polylines. This is a major upgrade to the CXF functionality and comes as a surprise. Some years ago I had an elaborated discussion about CXF and exploding to entities/paths. As engraver I saw the potential for single strike fonts what no TTF ...

Different kinds of splines.

Andrew, Still version 3.21.1.0 ; Win7 32bit. In QCAD we can draw splines by fit-points and control-points. An example of those are in the example included. On investigation the spline in the post of benjamindahl is a different kind: https://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=4859#p21518 Stepp...

Explode spline to polyline with line segments

Andrew, Still version 3.21.1.0 ; Win7 32bit. Is there a reason why exploding splines to polylines with line segments yields 4 times the number of nodes per segment set in App Prefs. Example included. reading http://www.qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=1479 This should be 2 in version...

Re: Exploding Splines

That is developer stuff. Followed the code to: > if (RSpline.hasProxy() && !splinesToLineSegments) { > pl = spline.approximateWithArcs(splineTolerance) And can't find out where it is treated further. The first link looks promising at first but there is a catch to it: "provided that the cage formed b...

We want less deformation on particual points on the curve

For this Biarc-fitting should be done optimal.

Re: Exploding Splines

Andrew, all, I don't think a simplifying step as that of eMachineShop will induces sharp corners. Simplifying or smoothing for CNC is to get rid of corners, short segments and enhance tangency. About earlier posts, Guys!? The accuracy scale, please. Better than 0.05 on a piece that is 2800 high and ...

Re: Nice and powerful, but veeeeery slow on big files

When the zoom level changes to 10<100 and beyond less texts are in the viewwindow and more screen updates are made. The texts in the example become readable in the 5th level passing from 100<1000 to 10<100. It's not the zoom level but how many texts items that are in the picture that slows the syste...
