  • In my first file I had strange BIM classifications for my Windows. But not sure if they went corrupt by editing the Blocks or were strange already for other reasons. Yes, you can delete BIM Tags. And it is common to assign BIM Tags to Blocks, l…
  • OK, my Experience : I selected a complete Building Story, including 1 Window in a Wall. I created a Block from it - without converting the source Solids itself to Block The initial Geometry lost Window/Wall insertion after that step (!?) The Wind…
  • Sorry, I did not really get what you do. You are using and editing Windows as usual. Just that your Walls are inside a Block ... Although I am used that inside Block Editing I always get warnings that this or that does not work inside Block Ed…
  • ^ I think in Ubuntu Distributions Material Library works fine (?) At least I copied the RenderMaterials Folder over to my other Installations. Not quite true as it is too hard for me to copy things in a "Var" Folder. I think that would only work…
  • When I reopen the Blocks and want to change the Parameters from the e.g. Windows it is not possible. As far as I understand, You insert the objects but do not edit them in Block or Refedit Mode. You would either change the detailed Parameter …
  • @Roy Klein Gebbinck said: @Michael Mayer is probably referring to the UCSORTHO setting. Bingo !
  • If everything works correctly and you open Render Material Panels, you will see all Library Materials in a Preview at the bottom of the panel. But these need to be downloaded first before using. There is a blue Arrow in the left part of each Mate…
  • There is a Setting for auto aligning the UCS to views. I think it is quite handy. Forgot the Command name. The only problem is that it will not change back to layer xy plane when you go to a standard isometric or perspective. So I deactivated i…
  • No I meant these User Library Shape Folder : SSD⁩ ▸ User ▸ ⁨UserName ▸ ⁨Library⁩ ▸ ⁨Application Support⁩ ▸ ⁨Bricsys⁩ ▸ ⁨BricsCAD Shape⁩ ▸ ⁨V19x64⁩ but in the hidden ".bricscad" Folder : SSD⁩ ▸ User ▸ ⁨UserName ▸ ⁨Library⁩ ▸ ⁨Preferences⁩ ▸ ⁨.bri…
  • Strange. I had some problems at my beginning too, after I tested Bricscad Trials in english and german. If you don't already have put too much time in settings and configuration, I would delete the whole Bricscad User Folder and especially the w…
  • For my IFC Imports, inserted Window and Door Blocks, insunits scaling works well. Also for inserting standard components. Dimensions ok, Scale Factor 1 ok. But when I replace my existing Windows by Bricscad Windows Components, the new Components …
  • It still works for me here as shown in the video on my trash can Mac Pro. (And on Windows of course) Shape v19.2.09 macOS 10.14.5 Mojave GPU 2x D700 6 GB VRAM Are the problematic Installations on machines without dedicated GPU, like Mac Books…
  • @Tom Foster said: In REFEDIT, copy-paste elements to where you want them in the surrounding main file. At this point, the copied items are still part of the Reference. Roughly box-select the copy (doesn't matter if you select bits of the ma…
  • Do other users find their REDSDK Render Material Libraries ? (those which you have to download first) The Path it points to in "VAR" has folders but no data inside. The Path to image Textures was wrong too. As it pointed to a v18 installation th…
  • Somehow Bricscad isn't allowed to read the image Texture Files inside the Program Folder. I think Program Folder has a more complicated file right management than the typical User Settings folder with its settings and sources. I would first look…
  • My trial period just ended and they cannot extend - my sales rep says. Strange. I needed 3 Bricscad Releases of trials and had at least asked for 1 trial extension (successfully) before I bought Bricscad. I will upgrade to Pro level! I …
  • OK, so I don't think it currently works as intended (?) I think you should file a support request .... When I restart my Bricscad in Classic only mode, there is nothing 3D Tools at all. I think that is because ACIS Solids aren't included in Clas…
  • I can only explain in a way that you started DMEXTRUDE, where "DM" = Direct Modeling Tools, not included in Classic. Maybe because offered by Quad ? While when I try from Menu : Model : 3D Solids : "Extrude" I get the old pure "Extrude" Command.…
  • Haven't noticed that indication before. Knowing if a special functionality is included in your package or not is great info !
  • I am save with 1. and 2. as a one man show. And if not for 1. it was for testing and comparing between versions to file SRs. But normally I avoid that. Yes the wording you quoted says clearly one machine only ....
  • I do have some smaller issues on Linux similar to Mac, which I don't see on Windows. like : - some strange behavior in Structure Tree with large files - similar blinking of GUI after saving customizations - no RFA import But somehow less dist…
  • That is pretty new to me. The first thing I ask before I buy a Softwaqre is always - can I only install it on one machine - if so I am out. That is uninteresting. I did that for Bricscad too. I have decieded for Vectorworks (2 machines), Cinema4…
  • IMHO you can, even with a standard license. You are allowed to install and activate 1 License on 2 machines. (run one at a time of course. Like Desktop+Laptop) With internet access you can deactivate a license on a machine, so it is available ag…
  • Fine. double click my viewport and double click camera that I want to use. So I learned something new too ....
  • Not experienced with paper space. But when I create Camera in model space, it will be automatically added to my "Views" in Drawing Explorer. I think that is just like any other "saved views", which could potentially be also available from Viewpo…
  • I tried. When I create a camera, I can double click on it and it will orient the drawing view to the camera view. From there you can display the view in any view render mode like modeling, wireframe, ... to preview the camera perspective. Or ta…
  • Thanks Hans, Very good idea. I looked into it again with Quad. It is just a delete Vertex that I missed but it works with delete Segment. (And maybe Boolean Operations between multiple Polyline Areas) Also there is an add Vertex. It works much …
  • For a very short moment I thought - hey, PDF will work for me even with PDFCACHE ON But you are right, PDFCACHE should be off ... Thanks !
  • In general I am pretty pleased by Bricscad v19 running on Linux. At least on Debian based Linux, for me, it is at least on par with Bricscad on macOS.
  • So, Tumbleweed healed from NVidia issues. I installed Bricscad's RPM as a PPA fine. It is included in Start Menu, starts fine and runs well. One issue I see in Linux like Manjaro or Tumbleweed, not 100% sure but not on Ubuntu DEB Linux (Elementa…
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.
