Re: new dovetail script

I am sooo close to finishing this script.

The dovetails are drawn correctly, but at the end of the second mouse click.

Re: new dovetail script

Ok, this problem is solved. It was an uppercase/lowercase problem.

Now something is drawn, but it doesn't look like a dovetail. The lengths are correct, but the angle of two lines is not.

Re: new dovetail script

Thanks! I have used qDebug() to find out, what values my parameters have, and I found out, that they are all "undefined". So my problem is, that I don't know, how to get values from the UI to the script. For example, I can input "Number of Dovetails", but the value is not transfered to the script. A...

Re: Tutorial: Writing a plugin that draws a dovetail

I have given it a try to produce a script that will take number of dovetails, height of dovetails, dovetail/pin ratio and gradient.

Try as I might, I couldn't make it work, but I have posted my attempt here:

new dovetail script

Changelog: I removed the old, defect script from this post and added a working copy at the end of this thread. My goal was to create a dovetail script with the following parameters: - number of dovetails, - height of dovetail, - dovetail gradient (usually 7:1, 6:1, 5:1 and 4:1) - dovetail/pin ratio...

How to draw a circle tangental to two arcs and a straight line? Here is what I got: Circle_from_3_Tangents.png I want to draw a circle which is tangental to all three segments, the two arcs and the straight line.

Re: Hatch from segments tool

I love the new "Hatch from segment" tool. Works fine. Very useful. But still... I would like to have a tool that allows hatching an area by just clicking on that area. Please consider voting for this feature: Hatching with just one click. http://www.qcad.org/bugtracker/index.php?do=details&task_id=763

Re: How to draw a tangent to a circle

With "unintuitive" I meant that I wouldn't look for a tangent tool in the "relative angle" place. ;-)

Re: How to draw a tangent to a circle

Thanks! That works, but is a bit unintuitive. I would have never guessed that "relative angle" is associated with tangents.

How to draw a tangent to a circle

Maybe I overlooked something, but I miss one tool to draw a tangent to a circle by simply selecting a point on the circumference. Of course I know how to construct a tangent (draw line from center to tangent point, then draw line at 90° to that line through tangent point), but I feel like this shoul...

Re: Default Template Folder

This is my template directory. When opening a new drawing I can select it:

Re: Default Template Folder

There is a Default Template Directory button but if I select a directory it is not remembered.

Re: Default Template Folder

It is under Load/Save Templates options menu. The directory entered there is not used as default template folder, as probably many of us think it should.
