Cutting objects

Post by jhurley » Sat May 18, 2019 4:22 am

I was wondering if there was a tool whereas you could cut shape at a specific spot? Similar to the cut/scissors tool in illustrator etc?

QCAD has a few cutting tools but of course not like Illustrator. QCAD is a CAD program - Illustrator is a graphic design program.

Maybe you could elaborate a bit more what you like to do with QCAD and we will see if it has the proper tools for that. :wink:

Yeah Illustrator does have an export to DXF option, just giving Q-cad ago as a teaching tool. The example would be how to do cut a 1/4 of a circle?

You could use for that the "Clip to Rectangle" tool in QCAD ...
