  • @Anthony Apostolaros said: Any lisp files whose names and paths are included in "on_doc_load.lsp" and "on_start.lsp" (in the Support sub-folder under Program Files/Bric... etc.) are loaded automatically. You could open each file listed in eit…
  • The support group suggested this might be caused by a LISP file I had loaded. I ran APPLOAD, and deleted all the LISP files I had loaded. No change. Not that any of the LISP files I was using had code that could generate the messages. And I hav…
  • @Hans De Backer said: Jim, sadly, we're getting a lot of fake replies on forum posts.................. Kind regards, Hans Thanks for answering. I guess no one else has experienced the problem. The support group thought I had some s…
  • @JM_Choi said: This is a Brics Forum, not AutoCAD. He's saying the tables originated in Autocad.....
  • The forum home page says someone commented on this, but I can't see a comment. Will the person who commented, please try posting again?
  • I move my 2D drawing views to model space and apply dimensions there, because I don't like the limitations of the tools for dimensioning in paper space. Also, I've noticed when using ordinate dimensioning, I'm not always able to select the correct …
  • Thank you Knut. I don't know how to repay you. @Knut Hohenberg said: On further request: Now supporting (app)loading the script from a folder not in SRCHPATH.
  • Of course if you don't want to cut a narrow lengthwise slit in the insulation to allow it to turn into "sheet metal" you can always cut the cylinder in half lengthwise, convert one half to sheet metal, and double the length of the unfolded blank..
  • I would suggest you go look at this thread: https://forum.bricsys.com/discussion/comment/37068/#Comment_37068 As I recall, when I joined the discussion, I started with a 3D solid of a cylinder. That is not something that can be converted to sheet …
  • @jurquhart said: Ive also noticed communicator uninstalls itself after every reboot, why?? Haven't had that experience, and I use Communicator all the time. Just a guess, but could it be a licensing issue? I've noticed some weird things wh…
  • @Kerry Brown said: Yes, Multiple CUI menu's can be loaded. Process described here: https://help.bricsys.com/hc/en-us/articles/360006535193-Loading-and-unloading-CUI-files and here https://help.bricsys.com/hc/en-us/arti…
  • @Kerry Brown said: .... Another advantage is that the associated .MNL will be autoloaded with the .CUI and you can load/configure all "your" stuff from the MNL Regards, Nothing intuitive to me about this. MNL? What is an MNL? Are …
  • @Jason Bourhill said: .... It's best to avoid customizing the default.cui if you can, instead use a partial cui to hold your custom toolbars etc. In V17 go to CUSTOMIZE and create a new partial cui in a known location. this creates …
  • @Owen Wengerd said: You can temporarily set WSAUTOSAVE to zero while upgrading your .cui. That way toolbar state will be saved in the user profile instead of the workspace, and it will not be lost when the .cui changes. This won't preserve any…
  • @Michael Mayer said: I think the Tools offered in Quad by default may have changed from v17 to v19. The only ERASE I see is in a Drafting Workspace related Folder. I would never see ERASE as I only use 3D BIM Workspaces. Thanks. I fil…
  • @Michael Mayer said: Do you use the Drafting or 2D Workspace ? Forgot to mention when I started this thread that I use V19..1.11.... I have tried this in a 2D (drafting) workspace and 3D (modeling) workspace. In a 2D workspace the erase c…
  • @Michael Mayer said: ..... I expected some behavior settings for these tools there, as to when to appear in the Quad. Like Bimdrag will only appear in Face Selection Mode, while it theoretically could also appear in Element Mode …
  • @DFLY said: Hey BricsCAD developers, If you are there. There is a way to turn meshes back to solids. It is obviously more difficult than turning solids to meshes. ............ Just viewed your video again, and realized I neglected to tha…
  • @Michael Mayer said: I think the way to do is the Customization Panel. I think so too, Michael. But I could not find anything about it in the help menus. All the tools I need appear in the listing for the quad in the customization panel. …
  • @KarelVergauwe said: Jim, .. to know whether a setting a drawing or system based you should have a look to the lower left corner in the settings dialog. It shows the type, whether drawing or registry setting and if it is BricsCAD only. …
  • A couple years ago, I read an article by some fresh out of college engineer who pronounced 2D CAD dead. According to him, there was no reason to do anything but hand a 3D STEP file to the machine shop, and the machine would cut the part. I asked,…

  • I am assuming you are doing 2D mirrroring... MIRRTEXT does not appear to work on diameter or radius dimensions, unless you separate the arrow head and leader from the text with the explode command. No problem with Quick Leader. I did not try the …
  • I had a similar thing happen to me with the properties window. It appeared to be locked, but wasn't. Couldn't grab the handles and resize it. See if you can reduce the size of the entire BricsCAD window, and or shift it to the left or right, so yo…
  • @Richard Webb said: I just checked and mine is set to "0" and I think that's the default. That could be because I've dragged many settings forward over successive upgrades? A clean install may be different. Richard, Thank you for your reply…
  • @Ilya Tatarnikov said: Just a small remark about the thread on standard parts: in V19 thread visibility is controlled by THREADDISPLAY variable. This really threw me until you told me about it a couple weeks ago. Should probably be visible …
  • @eyebright said: Hi, i am running 18.2.20 (x64) classic but i just can't open dwg's provided from my workspace. It just freezes the second i open it I did contact support but the answers given did not help, like RECOVER, DEMANDLOAD, GPU DRI…
  • @Ian Johnson said: Is it just me or have any other people found V19 crashing for no particular reason? I hardly ever had a problem in V18 but now with the new version it seems to happen a lot. I wont bother with support requests as it seem…
  • @Ilya Tatarnikov said: Just a small remark about the thread on standard parts: in V19 thread visibility is controlled by THREADDISPLAY variable. I wish someone had told me earlier.... While we are on the subject of threads, it is very com…
  • @Richard Webb said: ............................. ........ I think that the Standard Parts interface needs a bit of work. > Richard, Did you notice that there are no threads on the fasteners? When we moved to V19, we dropped BIM su…
