Re: Feature Request. Circuit-Type Hatching.

That is all fine, but you still did not answer me how you obtained the circuit route. Did you use "Delete Segment" Yes or No. Then if No, where or how was this done automatuicaly to obtain a circuit route ? Do you do the pocketing routine on your CNC CAM software or GCode program ? I cannot view PM'...

Re: Feature Request. Circuit-Type Hatching.

How did you do that ? By the same method I described namely removing segments ? As for your question, It doesnt have to be at 45 degree angle. Also it has top be tapered as the object is tapered. But if only rectangular outlines are allowed then the more inefficient way of just creating a rectangula...

Re: Feature Request. Circuit-Type Hatching.

Husky; I looked at the thread and what I am not sure of is how this can be integrated into QCAD. Seems like separate program. I am working on Linux, so the Win only or wine emulator is not going to be productive. This really should be a hatching option in your Hatch selection window. CNC users will ...

Re: Feature Request. Circuit-Type Hatching.

CVH. As explained in my original, I hatched an outline of, what is in this case a blade (That obviously tapers, and therefore the hatching will taper) . I then have the outline and the blade visible in a single layer. I then remove the sections from the outline (with "Break Out Segment" ) in order t...

Feature Request. Circuit-Type Hatching.

This will be infinitely useful for people like me who uses QCAD for CNC work. I do not currently see a Circuit type hatching option and just CNC'ng a hatch creates hugely inefficient gcode. This type of circuit hatching, will make it really easy and super efficient to perforjm the usual initial flat...

Re: Directions regarding scripting markings,

A script for ONE marking on an object - sounds like overkill to me. Here your chance to proof me wrong .... :wink: Not just one single line ... good heavens, what are you thinking .. lol. What about an entire micrometer scale ? I dont think entering and trying to snap that to grid or free place, in...

Directions regarding scripting markings,

I need to have fine accurate markings on an object in my design. They are similar to ruler markings and need be very accurate as they need to be read off by a moving needle. Can someone point me to a scripting example of something similar ? It is not really possible to do these lines without program...

Re: [solved] Moving the ZERO

It really is "Bringing the Mountain" aka the design to the "man" aka Zero. It is obvious and a huge fuss compared to simply being able to place the zero in your design (which functionality doesnt exist currently) This doesnt solve the fundamental question and problem in a way that you could rather e...

Re: [solved] Moving the ZERO

You can absolutely move the zero point in QCAD. Make sure all layers are visible, then Select > Select all , Edit > Cut with Reference , click where in your drawing you want the zero to be, Edit > Paste to 0/0. 0/0 should most definitely not just be at any random point. Thanks a lot for this Andrew...

Re: Scaling

I appreciate the answers, but must admit some are a bit over my head. i am sorry if I stepped on something with this topic I should not have, but I am honest with what I experienced and stand by it. It seems from what was said above is that I just need to explode the blocks as dimensions should not ...

Re: [solved] Moving the ZERO

It is a Royal PITA not to be able to move the zero fast and consistently in CAD. And I got bitten lately again by this lack of functionality in Qcad, Especially during a rework of an existing piece. When the Zero is set in CAD I have no problem. CAM software generally is good but you have the loomin...

Re: Scaling

I could repeat the error time and time again. then I decided to make a video. I closed the design and Qcad to start from scratch. loaded the design, and now suddenly it also scales in the Blocks !! So now I cannot replicate it, but I would like to know how I triggered that behavior. There definitely...

Re: Scaling

It seems to scale in the main window, but as soon as I edit a block nothing was scaled. The problem is inside the block it seems. So If I select all and scale the entire design and then go to any block in the design, when I open the block and measure, it is still the old dimension. this is not reall...

Scaling

I have a drawing I want to scale, say 2x. I do 1) select ALL (in my drawing) 2) Modify-> scale 3) I enter the amount, say 2.0 in the x coordination box, with Y-linked to automate. 4) I press ok and the designed is scaled and the result replaces the original. However, when I use the measuring tool th...

QCAD and Gerber

1) Is there a Gerber plugin for Qcad or is there anyone here who know of a stand-alone dxf to gerber converter that runs on Linux. ?

2) Autocad has a Gerber plugin and you can create gerber files from DXF.
Is there any way that Autocad plugins work on Qcad,
