This one is for Husky: here's the unit I built with your help on the gear design, works nicely. The hardest part was achieving a decent shape for the bit I used to cut the gears...

Re: Snap problem, entities inside block

Hi Clive,
That's right, all other entities are recognized except circles and arcs. I checked this behavior in 2.2.2.0, same thing.

Re: import X,Y data table from Excel

Re: import X,Y data table from Excel

Hi, In fact, I need to cut 3 wheels that will match the worm screw on my lathe. The way I figured it initially was to calculate the involute curve by small increments and then feed the x,y points in QCAD. So it is not a standard situation in which you'd have a given ratio and center distance...The p...

Re: import X,Y data table from Excel

Hi Husky,

import X,Y data table from Excel

Good morning,
I tried the import point function but nothing happens when I select the xls file in the dialog box.
I wanted to import a gear tooth profile calculated in excel.
Thanks for any hint. (win7-64)

Re: Rotate Object with Unknown Angle

Thanks for this tip, I have been faced to that situation many times but I do not recall seeing that feature documented (I may have overlooked it). I always did a geometrical construction to measure my rotation angle and then apply the value in the box... I just noticed that manual scaling can be use...
