Re: Nothing visible in DWG import from Fusion 360

Andrew, thanks for examining the DWG file. As I mentioned to Husky, I don't have access to AutoCAD because it is expensive, that's what led me to QCAD. I am able to use Fusion 360 for free as a hobbyist. It does not provide operations for modifying the DWG file. The drawing is really in a model nati...

Re: Nothing visible in DWG import from Fusion 360

I've searched but I have not found any way in Fusion 360 to access the layer properties of the DWG file it will export. I don't have AutoCAD (this is a QCAD forum, after all) to open the DWG file and modify it. The technique of copy/pasting from edit mode of a block works for one of the views in the...

Re: Nothing visible in DWG import from Fusion 360

Thanks for testing. It is interesting that your QCAD crashed; mine did not. I guess one might infer from the crash that the DWG file contains content that is not covered by the DWG input capabilities of QCAD. Is there documentation somewehere stating what limitations QCAD imposes on DWG files? I don...

Nothing visible in DWG import from Fusion 360

I used Autodesk Fusion 360 to open a 3D model for an electronic part, then used the function in Fusion 360 to output a DWG file showing the traditional face, top, bottom and side views of a 2D drawing. When I open that DWG file in QCAD 3.22.0.11, there are no visible elements. In the Block List ther...

Re: Splines

I hit the same problem going from 3.15.5 to 3.22.0. The same correction worked for me. Attached is the dxf before the correction in case that is useful to see where the odd tangents originated. I don't recall having selected tangents in the first place, and the property editor does not allow turning...

Re: bitmap export has extra white space

Thanks. I don't really need to do this minor size adjustment now since the bitmap export gives the desired result even without an exact size match to pixels. It would be great if an error message would appear in the command line output saying that this non-uniform scaling of hatches is not supported.

Re: bitmap export has extra white space

Thanks. The snapshot fixes the bitmap export problem. Regarding the scaling, please open the file reduced.dxf attached to the initial post and try scaling with an x factor of 1.00036696 and a y factor of 1.0000248 which would change the dimensions from 32.899184 x 1.024624 to 32.9 x 1.025. When I tr...

Re: bitmap export has extra white space

I tried scaling again and there was no change. I selected all (TA), modifymenu, scale, snapintersection and selected the drawing origin as the focus point, then in the scaling dialog just clicked OK because the scaling factors we still as previously entered. There was no change. Then I repeated this...

Re: bitmap export has extra white space

Also, should I be able to scale the drawing by a very small amount as I described in my last paragraph of the original post?

bitmap export has extra white space

I have a drawing that is a filled rectangle approximately 33 inches wide by 1 inch tall. I want to export it as a 600 DPI bitmap with no margin, so in the export dialog I set the DPI to 600 (resulting in a width of 19740 and height of 615), I set the margin value to zero and unchecked the box for ex...
