Re: Operate on entire object (e.g. Rectangle)

Tim, your title says it all. And this is allready said while I was typing it... In Qcad there is no concept of a shape like a triangle, sqaure, rectangle or polygon. With Draw / Shape / ... you can draw these in different ways. These are then inserted as individual lines or as a polyline. Further th...

Re: How to create a custom hatch?

First: A Hatch consists of line pieces, nothing else. But there are ways arround that so it looks as rounded. Further: Please also indicate the repetitive nature. Remember this has to fill everything in all directions up to the boundary and in all scales. Lets say 3-4 repetitions in the desired dire...

Re: Problem printing with drawing-unit=INCH

I urge you to investigate the contours in your drawing. Added layers, set all lineweights and types to Default/By Layer Superimpose the picture, this only works at your side if the png is in the same folder as the dxf. I added 4 perspective lines from 4 opposing circles + arcs. These do meet with th...

Re: Problem printing with drawing-unit=INCH

Changing Edit / Drawing Preferences (Crtl.+I) to mm only changes the actual unit of the drawing at hand. Anything drew 2inch will now be considered as 2mm. We don't know at what state you added the 5 inch line. The lines of the draft you point at in the second picture have a lineweight of 0.15mm. Th...

Re: Odd occurance when creating circle 2 points

Indeed: Z is not zero is the issue here. IMPORTANT note! Your drawing has 3D information what makes me thinking it wasn't entirely created in QCAD. That is a recipe for trouble. To make sure that everything works in QCAD as expected flatten the drawing below Menu/Misc/Modify/Flatten drawing to 2D :w...

Re: Hatch problems

Remember 'Ar-sand2' is a quick patch.
Andrew fixed this for future releases.

Following the commit in the bugreport I assume that
dots will be rendered by null-lenght line segments.

Re: Hatch problems

That was a hard one. Hatches are defined as: ; remarks and blank lines are ignored *pattern-name[, description] angle, x-origin, y-origin, delta-x, delta-y [, dash1, dash2] [, dash3] [, dash4] [, dash5] [, dash6] angle, ... ... Empty line The name start with *, max 31 characters long. A line is max ...

Beside that you can set these individual for most kinds of objects.

Re: How to create a custom hatch?

Well, there are common standards and there is non-standard. LibreCad uses dxf tiles. Qcad uses common patterns. Not sure how that works out for LibreCad but I think that those hatches are converted into entities. While under Qcad they stay defined as patterns. Not sure about all that. In short the s...

Re: making splines and lines to polystring - illbehaves

What is "mince" and where does one adjust it? I have set linewidth to 0 . Lineweight, where does one adjust it? I think you know as you say you did set it. Layer / Lineweight or Property Editor / Lineweight I was not talking about Global Width what is special to Polylines. Remark here that Poly wit...

Re: making splines and lines to polystring - illbehaves

That is your hatch + the contour line.
Its probably on Layer 0 as ever.
Your Lineweight is not mince.

The R pocket is 0.50 - 0.40 width.
Minus 2x half the Lineweight.
