I was going to suggest UCSFOLLOW, but after a test, it doesn't appear that UCSFOLLOW does in BricsCAD what it does in the other CAD.
It worked so far (v18-v19) for me and was my default setting of choice.
Unfortunately it h…
Windows are Blocks - referenced from another (Library) File.
These Referenced Blocks can somehow be brought into and saved in the current file.
So you could edit or exchange these Blocks for an inserted Window.
If you insert a Window it wi…
It seems to only lock when the tooltip is saying Polar - but very often, even when the mouse is constained to a polar direction, the tooltip says Perpendicular, or Extension or something else. Then Shift fails to lock (turn the tracking line red)…
I think that will happen by the 3D Constraints you apply,
Probably these need correct naming or setting for edibility.
I assume it may be the Clip Volume Geometry settings which
hold the overall Length/Width info (?) while the actual Window
Oh, no, the geometry seems corrupt.
And it doesn't look really round (?)
I would recreate it from scratch with real Solids and Direct Modeling.
Like from clean 2D Profiles,
extruded in Length but leaving a gap where elements should touc…
Only the larger part is a Solid.
The 3 smaller parts consist of Surfaces and Regions.
But Stich Command worked for me for the 3 smaller parts.
Then you have 4 Solids that you can Boolean Unite.
But check that these 3 really touch the larger Soli…

The last thing you should do to improve performance is explode blocks.
that is exactly what said*

Vectorworks feels more fluid with the same DWG Imports.
I have a current, not so bad, RTX 2070 with 8 GB VRAM.
I assigned my 3D Apps to not save energy in Windows but best

Yes, and I think (?) Roys Software does basically the same.
So I wondered that you said it was so fast.
I think in my case there would be around 5000+ Blocks.
And I would expect that could need some hours.
I had similar before, but just a small …
I spent two hours doing what this routine took a few seconds to do on a very large drawing.
But basically such a program has to do the same steps for blocks
as I would have to do manually ?

As for the Structure Tree in V19.
I happily recognized the new checkbox to non-activate
auto-expansion of the Tree.
(Which I always asked for and is very important for Projects with
4+ digit numbers of Block Instances and Solids. Also my cli…
So you say Layers are still very important ?
Layers do not disappear,
but the way the UI goes, I think they get less and less accessible
to work with. That's why I assuemed they will also lose importance.
Looks like usin Guides+Cross Section would be the way to go with Loft :
DMTWIST could be another (faster ?) Workflow :
Thanks a lot Bernard.
Hope it was no false alarm
As I also get a 404 error on Mac when I try to open Help on Mac
Or just a wrong link ?
Windows V19 works well

Ouh, is it so hard to reach objects inside of Blocks.
You need an own Software to do so ?
(I get scared when I see code lines ....)
I thought there would be an Option inside Bricscad to
Select ALL Elements (Solids and Blocks) in a file to edit
Ich denke das ist gut möglich.
(Unser NumBlock Komma kann man ja auch nicht zur Eingabe nutzen)
Bin aber begeistert dass Sonderzeichen wohl innerhalb Bricscad
Soweit ich das verstanden habe gibt es seit v19 keine spezielle

Yes, the head up display on screen fades much too quickly for me too.
The head up display only will appear when you have your Command Line

I am very very happy to read this.
thanks to Modo and Bricscad Support,

(Still hope I could stay with preferred Mac platform
though. But it doesn't look very bright))
I see that Menu Entry for the first time.
(I had migrated partial CUI)
I found "Components in Modeling Workspace.

Menus, "All available" right section.

Since our resources are limited, create an official support request which additional format you would like to see in BricsCAD?
