  • @Anthony Apostolaros said: And if you use Layer States to control which layers are visible in the model tab, that can also be used to automatically set which layers are VP-frozen in a viewport. Thanks. I could have saved myself some headach…
  • @Louis Verdonck said: Hi Jim The Drawing Explorer dialog might be too small to display all VP layers.. Thanks Louis. I realize now to get the changes applied to the layout, I have to toggle the viewport mode.
  • @Anthony Apostolaros said: The VP Freeze column, which appears right next to the Freeze column (but not when you're in the Model tab), works the same way as the Freeze column, except that it only freezes or thaws the layer in the current viewp…
  • Thanks Louis. I found columns for transparency and line width and to freeze the Viewport layer, but I couldn't figure out how to hIde the layer in that viewport.
  • @Joe Dunfee said: Wishing you well also. .. -Joe Thanks Joe. You've been very helpful to me since I started learning this stuff. Patient too. I'll still be around the site from time to time, but both my employers business and my heal…
  • @H Martin Shoemaker said: I apologize for my absence from the thread I started. First it was changes at work. Then the death of my mother. Now, it's my declining health. I don't know how much time I will be able to devote to this forum in t…
  • @ericvandee said: I don't know why but when I have been using the pushpull command it will only go one direction. I will select my face and start dragging the face in the direction I want it to go, then enter the value, but will go the distanc…
  • I created a long, thin, straight strip and was able to twist it 3600 degrees. I then created a strip in the shape of a hoop, whose ends almost met. When I ran DMTWIST on it, and a bend of 3600 degrees, the command didn't do anything. When I gave…
  • @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,…
