  • I think I tested though all ... Looks like creating Blocks manually works as expected and Info is kept. Even Blockify, when searching for multiple Solids works as expected. Just when running Blockify over a single Solid or even a whole File, it …
  • @Roy Klein Gebbinck said: The behavior you report is particular to the Blockify command. AutoCAD or indeed BricsCAD do not do this by default. Entities selected for the _Block command retain their properties (I would not use the word 'attribut…
  • @avc said: Surprisingly but literally I recently published a plugin that does the reverse of Blockify. It only explodes blocks with a single solid and transfers the properties of the block to solid. The plugin is called A>V>C> Unpack.…
  • @Roy Klein Gebbinck said: You may also want to look at the Xplode command (without the 'E'). Huh, will look into it.
  • Interesting. Meanwhile a few macOS 11 Big Sur Betas further, V20 works well again.
  • Basically yes. Maybe someone more experienced may know better solutions or workarounds in Bricscad. Or this is a point where Bricscad is not so comfortable. Although it might not be a big deal if you are used to. I personally would not judge ove…
  • Ahm, I forgot to mention that all these impressing Bricscad Tools work best for rectilinear geometry. IMHO there are some weaknesses in 2D and curved 3D maintenance. (The primary focus of Bricscad, unfortunately, keeping Autocad compatibility a…
  • Generally, FreeCAD works mostly parametric, with all Pros and Cons, while Bricscad uses basically a non-history based "Destructive Modelling". So you would work differently in Bricscad. In 3D you will use its "Direct Modeling" tools and workflow.…
  • If you mean the Ribbon, that happens to me too, every now and then. I think these GUI and Customization hiccups are equal on Linux and Mac. Sometimes I even seem to have lost parts of my customized Bricscad Settings. For me Windows version fee…
  • I still haven't played much with TIN in Bricscad but I think these ^ are very useful proposals for future development.
  • @James Maeding said: @Joe Dunfee That is an interesting issue, as a programmer will know how to remove any xrecord data you add to the dwg. From my experience, people who are so ignorant don't even care about trying to hide evidence ..…
  • @Tom Foster said: BTW, the guy's insistence on crossing lines at corners is a red herring - not necessary, just his artistic style. Exactly what I did in my Studies. I found it great at that times. My Professors found it .... red herring .…
  • Nevertheless, I played with some project exports in Bricscad, set some Sections and let Bricscad render Plans. And it is ... ähm ... an other Drawing Style than I am asking here for. And I still don't like the noisy Hatches in sectioned areas, …
  • For me it looks like has has only 3 Sections (called x,y and z with the black stripes) Numbers and Letters for me look like Axes - for each building element ?
  • This is what I want to look like my generated drawings : + According to local drawing standards, e.g. for a Plan Drawing, I need an upper and lower plane to define what Objects are included in a secondary fashion. E.g. important objects, li…
  • Yes, if you want to use the full Command Line, In case it is collapsed, just double click inside the left part of the Staus Bar and Command Line will reappear. (Showing four Rows of history by default (?)) If you don't like CL, collapse it by …
  • That is a kind of head up Display in drawing view. It appears when you have your Command Line Palette collapsed and shows what the command line would show. A quick search didn't let me find a Setting to avoid that. Maybe when you set Command L…
  • Ah, yes, .... Dark Mode still has some flaws here and there. Maybe there is no Setting but coded into GUI. I think that needs a feature/change request and they will change it.
  • @Jim Canale said: Anyway, my experience with communicator, is that when it is installed and licensed (separately from BricsCAD), With latest installation I realized that there is a separate install for communicator, which I didn't so far
  • You mean INSUNITS ? If you want to change these you would have to scale the geometry. And if they were wrong from the source, scaling would bring in all rounding errors anyway ?
  • I always thought that Autocad/dwg would somehow not being effected by drawing far from origin. As nearly all Files I got from Autocad users over decades were always drawn far from origin. Kind of georeferenced location. In Vectorworks we get in …
  • @Tijs Vermeulen said: We noticed Apple's announcement too. It means more work, for sure, but it does not mean the end. We just need to create a new renderer, that's all. Normally the bulk of the effort should be for Redway. A …
  • @Marijan said: In such a way I can easily and anytime control if an object was drawn with snap or not just by passing the cursor over the edges or endpoints of an object. I miss that too in Bricscad. Used to from my other CAD. Snapping alwa…
  • Did you export in IFC2x3 or newer IFC4.0, which is not yet widely supported ? I recently learned that IFC2x3 would still be the way to go for now. If I export IFC and open in Vectorworks, I get in all IFC Tags. You can check your IFC Model in a I…
  • Not the best or realistic idea : create Polyline create Region from it (optional) assign a BIM Tag (BIM Slab ?) > give it a name and other info
  • Bricscad's solution is Enscape Plugin. Unfortunately Windows only. A real solution for me would be to finally upgrade the BC's FBX exporter to a state that I am used from all my other Software's FBX ex-/importers. Beside Geometry and Material As…
  • Not sure if Bricsys will use them, but I see endless interesting opportunities. Bricscad (or parts of it) for Apple ARM would also run on an iPad (even iPhone or Apple TV) where you could use Apple Augmented Reality and Raytracing to show your …
  • There won't be any support for AMD or Nvidia GPUs on Apple Silicon. Apple Silicon is not just about RISC ARM architecture like ARM server CPUs. It's about their "System on a Chip" architecture with CPU+GPU cores and many other accelerator cores t…
  • It is a bit more urgent here. My 2013 Mac Pro is still able to do CAD and Modeling. Just Rendering isn't that much fun anymore, compared to my Ryzen 3950X PC. So I may need an Intel iMac in between, when it gets updated. I'm still on Mojave. Bu…
  • I am not sure if it works with a standard export format. AFAIK such a live exchange nowadays works by directly grabbing the object data from the View Window data.
Origami
Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
