I'ld expect that we would have gotten an official warning already,
if Bricscad would be negatively influenced by Win11 - or not (?)
My primary CAD App is testing since release of Win11,
so far no problem found but they ask to wait upgrading until…
I don't think there is any option to calculate it directly from the Point Cloud.
Which is - just a dumb Cloud of - Points ...
If the geometry isn't too complex, you may need to manually draw in some
Solids, which will give you the Volume.
Type " -view/T/enter" for a top view.
Will this lock the view to 2D ?
I think it would be nice to have a locked 2D View to XY,
like e.g. by activating 2D Wireframe mode.
So that you can be sure to draw 2D and only on XY Pla…
Can't see if the whole geometry is a single Element in a circle and
cutting through one side would result in both ends touching in a
coplanar fashion that Bricscad may don't like or such things.
But I would file a Support Request to clarify.
I think the problem is that Bricscad hasn't any kind of Story binding.
But I think though that there could be a way to just select the Wall's Face in 2D Top Plan View,
and the 4x numeric distance input is just projected on Layer Plane.
As, as it …
^ I still waited to say this and disappoint @1mi8 ...
Yes, I also see no way in 2D Top Plan View.
And that is not that attractive.
I personally can live with the 3D-only approach.
But the need to always define the Opening's Z every time again fr…
I agree that it may have to do with the AMD GPU,
especially if you have an AMD "Pro" GPU with special drivers.
I had V21 crashing with one of the later AMD drivers as soon as I tried to open any File.
AFAIK that was fixed with AMD/Redway/Bricscad…
Resolved with Windows Restore before the video driver update.
That sounds strange though.
I experienced Bricscad crashing when just trying to opening any File,
just because I upgraded my AMD GPU driver.
(works again with later AMD drivers an…
on the M1 on Rosetta 2. So the shared Ram on the M1 really works well.
There is an official statement on help file ?
Something like, Bricscad will bring a native Appel ARM version in "a" coming release.
I hope for V22.
My experience was that…
But isn't that what my Auto Backups are for ?
I never had a CAD before that does such things.
Microstation even wrote every action directly in the Drawing File,
without the need to save. When it crashed, what it very rarely did
you only lost you…
I knew that I can disable BAK files.
And I still do not really understand how they help when saving a file
or how much trash value I should give ....
So if they help/accelerate when saving, create them.
But what is their meaning when the File ge…
@Roy Klein Gebbinck said:
Are you sure this is default AutoCAD behavior?
Don't know but I think it is a great feature (for the BAK files).
Or about the Lock Files, who does care about them when the stay after Bricscad crashed ?
I can't re…
I usually use 175% scaling on my 4k 24" monitor - instead of recommended 200%.
So far uneven scaling does not work well for Bricscad.
Neither for UI fonts nor Icon sizes, which can scale evenly only too.
So adjustable font sizes would be welcome…
Vectorworks arrived with a native - and latest Apple API optimized - Apple ARM version.
That is really a step forward. All Rosetta overhead gone and RAM usage, according to
Activity Monitor more realistic values as for Intel Macs. Which mea…
I am not experienced with point clouds.
But in latest Bricscad Releases, beside just scaling point sizes,
there was a Point Cloud auto setting, that scaled point sizes
according to point density for less covered areas.
Which made the scen…
Join Beta Testing Now. V22.1.02 is available for download.
I do, since V22.1.01.
I even did a bit of real work on first V22 Beta.
Unfortunately, without documentation, I was not even able to find those
new features in the Beta App, which I w…
When I was using a Mac, about 25 years ago, I don't think it had an option to show hidden files.
There are several Apps that will switch that for you (e.g. Pathfinder)
or there are Terminal Commands.
Usually everything on Mac is hidden by def…
I am sure there are ways to prevent displaying certain File Types
by some advanced Terminal Commands,
but that is far above my pay grade and may be a bit risky and
just a Workaround.
It is a bit annoying and does not help to read your File Struc…
Exactly, we won't know until November.
But I don't expect much improvements in Modeling.
Especially in all DM .... Commands.
As they are already quite good.
I expect more improvements or new features in AI Tools.
Or more compatibility with late…
I use 30x40’s template for my company in revit and I was wondering if anyone has successfully used his A-CAD template in Brics BIM?
I would more urgently need that 30x40 Template for Vectorworks,
which isn't available. So I also thoug…
the object is not highlighted or selectable when the mouse moves over it?
I don't really get why Bricscad does not have such options.
And I don't get why Entities on "locked" Layers get highlighted or selected.
Or why there i…
If you have 3D Faces, you have to convert them to Regions first.
(Select - Create Region)
Then you can stitch them and will get a Solid
(if it was a proper Volume)
or a Surface.
Which you should be able to convert/degrade to a Mesh, if n…
Very unlikely that it could help,
but the last Bricscad version is 21.2.06.
I was also not very lucky to try any changes in Customization to any Mouse Buttons
in the past and did not try any further.
I use the default behavior, which is for me :…
