Re: Using QCAD known variables in ECMAscript?

Hi Andrew, I tried: var min = RS.LIMMIN; var max = RS.LIMMAX; appWin.handleUserInfo("Min = " + min + " max = " + max); The output is: Min = 91 max = 90 but these always return 91, and 90, respectively. Are these pointers to the actual values? I expect each to have a pair of coordinates, so I tried v...

Re: Can't Explode Block

Husky,

It seems that some of the ECMA scripts was causing my issue. Thanks for helping me troubleshoot the problem!

Can't Explode Block

OS: Windows 10 Pro 1803, 64-bit, 8G RAM, 10 cores QCAD Ver. 3.20.1 Hi, I imported an AutoCAD dwf using QCAD, and couldn't explode the block, so I saved it as a dwg and tried again. No luck. Any ideas? PS: I tried to upload the dwf also, but the system would'nt let that filetype in. The file (1611000...

Dynamic Endpoints?

OS: Windows 10 Pro 1803, 64-bit, 8G RAM, 10 cores QCAD Ver. 3.20.1 Hi Andrew, I want to create a line for which one or more end points is a dynamic reference to a point object in the drawing, and I want the reference information to be saved in the dwg file. I can think of adding custom attribute dat...

Re: Hello

Andrew,

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I've been seeing this behavior. Sometimes the object is not even visible, but is selectable by bounding box.

Reloading the document seems to fix the problem: what bit of magic accomplishes this? It seems to happen even if I set Z to zero.

Regards,

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

Hi, I've been using QCAD only a short time, but I've tested the limits of its "performance" adequately, without ever loading a file over 1 MB. In fact, the attached zip file contains 10 files whose compressed size is only 1 MB, but a 300 KB dwg makes my computer drag. It's not just size, it's how ha...

Re: aerodynamic profiles

Hi, Maybe the attached is similar to the solution you seek. It takes a text input file of x,y pairs and connects adjacent points. I used it to construct an airfoil shape from data someone posted, I think here on the QCAD forum. Just copy the folder into the scripts folder and you should be good to g...

Hello

Hi, I'm new to this forum but I'm excited to be working with QCAD. I'm a civil engineer and hoping to extend the software to provide some custom features through scripts for land surveyors and civil designers. QCAD Professional actually supports z values quite a bit, I have found. I've been using it...

Using QCAD known variables in ECMAscript?

Hi,

From the QCAD docs, there's a class called RS Class Reference that defines LIMMIN and LIMMAX as KnownVariables. I am wondering is there is a way to access global variables like these from within the ECMAscript environment?

Thank you :D

Re: Reloading of Script before execution

Hi,

I'm trying to do this on Windows 10 command line with QCAD 3.20.1.0, using the modified form from within f:\Program Files\QCAD\.

qcad -always-load-scripts.

I get the splash screen but the program aborts. Is there another way to enter the command line switch?

Thanks in advance,
