Re: Saving Only a single layer to DXF

Done a lot by Lisp programmers for autocad. It seems to be coming up as an autocad user often.

Re: Saving Only a single layer to DXF

Thanks for the workaround, this is about how I am doing it currently but it is cumbersome if you have a lot of designs. I was hoping that QCAD does this natively, as it really should.

Do you know of any other software application I can use that can do this by importing a Qcad created dxf ?

Re: Saving Only a single layer to DXF

Correct, I never had a Cam that could do that AND work with my German Techno Isel Machines. The Isels are great, but their gcode flavor is from mars. Was a bad buy in that respect.

Saving Only a single layer to DXF

I need to successively CNC individual layers of a DXF file, so I need separate DXF for each of them only containing the specific layer. I have a lot of trouble doing that and I could not explicitly find it in the manual. So how can I creat dxf's from each later in a master dxf containing all the lay...

Re: Extruding a 2-dim object

Ok, so I completely misunderstood what Qcad can do.
Well then its not going to be able to CNC any 2dim objects of uniform thickness, with chamfers in the z-direction.
Unfortunately not what I have been looking for as that is crucial for 2d objects.

Thanks for the help.

Re: Extruding a 2-dim object

So why do you have a Chamfer option then? See Modify => Chamfer
How do you chamfer an edge if it has no thickness ?

It stumps me how I can chamfer a design with zero thickness.

Re: Qcad Manual.

Attached see Proof that there is NO search field in the manual.

A PDF would be a good plaster for the bug.
Do you have a PDF version?

Extruding a 2-dim object

How do you extrude in Qcad ? I have a 2d design (lines in xy, that I want to extrude to 3mm thickness) Guess I have to make the surface solid (face as in solidworks,autocad,freecad etc) before I can extrude, but the manual is vague if this is possible. It sure is as I saw in youtube videos, but the ...

Qcad Manual.

QCAD manual from the interface is not searchable and google searches only brings up one grainy video I cant make out.
Is there e.g. a searchable pdf version of the manual available?
The html version from the interface in qcad is pretty useless as it has no search function.

Re: How To combine objects into single moveable object

Perfect thanks. That solves it, works like a charm. Reading the manual, you would never say that Blocks is what is needed. After you confirmed it does, I made it work. Not obvious at all. Thanks. While I have your attention, how do you extrude in Qcad ? I have a 2d design (lines in xy, that I want t...

How To combine objects into single moveable object

Create say a square and a circle in Qcad separated from each other.. Then how do you combine the square and circle into one object.? Other cad programs uses "GROUP" to group line segments and objects into one grouped object. How does Qcad do it ? The same for an object consisting of several connecte...
