Re: Arcs

Thanks, Husky. Like you said to me, I drew out my vertical and horizontal lines of the pipe's OD and ID, then used the Round tool. But I didn't know how to formulate the curves (arcs). But I now see what you're talking about. 35+20 35+13 35-13 35-20 Screenshot from 2017-12-11 21-49-48.png Sure do ap...

Hi Forum: This isn't a QCAD-specific issue, just something I need help with. I don't understand how to draw this: EXERCISE 3.jpg That's a drawing another user here put out for me to try to draw. And this is what I ended up with: Screenshot from 2017-12-11 18-44-52.png My arcs are way off. The only o...

Re: Auto-dimensioning

Can you outline how this would work? I'll do this right away, Andrew. slyde wrote: And while I have the wish list open, maybe at some point we cld have the ability to set defaults for the diameter and radius: ø and R. I assume that would be a default prefix for the label, right? This is correct. Th...

Re: How to change the grab point of a Block

Thank you very much, Andrew. I was afraid of losing the attributes. Now I know how to proceed without doing that. Thanks.

How to change the grab point of a Block

Hi Forum:

I made a Block w/attributes last night. I want to change the grab point on it. I know I can explode it and create the block again and set a new grab point, but I'm worried abt losing the 30 attributes associated with the Block if I do that. What's the best way to do this?

And while ...

Re: Nudge an entity using arrow keys?

Hi Husky & Clive:

Thank you both for your information. My thoughts exactly, Clive. Maybe that will be added in a future release.

[solved] Is there a better way to do this?

Nudge an entity using arrow keys?

Hi Forum:

I was wondering if it's possible to nudge (move in tiny increments) an entity, say a Block, using the arrow keys.

Re: Paper_Space and Viewports

Hi Clive:

I'll be using QCAD for large concrete underground manholes and concrete sections. Most of this is for running wire and piping. I still have a couple months before I'm officially on the clock, so I'm using this time to get to know QCAD inside and out.
