  • I see them, behind Shape official ....
  • I see only Shape Beta. The last 3 Columns entries on the right, behind Shape. Usually outside of my Window ...
  • For me subscription never worked beside for Mac. So I wondered that I received Shape Windows notification at all. I also didn’t realized there is already a new Version ...
  • Waves ? At a quantum level, regarding electrons, matter, energy or waves - for me everything looks the same. Vacuum even not empty - so maybe everything IS just waves only. Waves are everywhere. The higher the frequency, the higher their energy…
  • As I mentioned I'm using a wireless mouse MX Master from Logitech. Support is very creative finding temporary Workarounds : a) CMD+SHIFT+LMB Drag = life zoom (Unfortunately not cursor origin aware but View Center only, needs dragging to re…
  • In my case I had trouble with some Revit DWG export geometry, like simple Slabs, with or without rounded parts, which came in as Surfaces. (Which caused GI calculation problems by VRAY later) It looks like some of the Revit Geometry had redundant…
  • ^ OMG! I mean things like BLOCKIFY are that much impressive in 2D only. (Unfortunately I don't have any 2D) But if "Afterwards, we want BLOCKIFY to identify groups of similar solids automatically – which is a far more complicated problem." can …
  • Maybe a quarterly cycle, Windows, macOS, Linux, Shape, Windows, mac ...
  • Yes, that thing we are not allowed to talk about, seems to be pretty stable ....
  • @Tom Foster said: Yes but if it's interference that wd have a general effect on function - this seems to be just on one particular command - or is a problem with sending two 'commands' at once over wireless? Interesting too that other Apps a…
  • I think it was around February the last years. Linux another bit later (It was said May ?)
  • No problem, I just said I have to retry DXF r12. I wasn't sure when ACIS came, maybe I tried even lower DXF at that time DAE and FBX produce very good geometry for me. Face Normals correct, everything welded, separate meshes for each object. So…
  • I've concluded that the command line is where the action is. The GUI is little more than a way to use the mouse to enter prerecorded keystrokes. I am pretty sure, the large majority of humans wouldn't use Computers at all, if they would still …
  • Joe, I am really happy with Bricscads new help System. Yes, complex Tools but I find all Information and the Layout is better to read than many other Software's Text Walls. Of course I also do easier with short Videos from Heidi Hewett, Ralph G…
  • That 'cool, clean and simple user interface' also means that BricsCAD looks like the controls of the space shuttle to me. You can start in BIM workspace, which for v19 got the new reduced Shape UI Looks good but I still can't work without thin…
  • Do you by any chance use a Magic Mouse or another Wireless Device ? As it was in reach I tested with my old Magic Mouse, as I am Wacom Pen Input only. I could reproduce Zoom not working, same for my Wireless Wacom Remote Sensor Wheel. But it wor…
  • @RoatanBill said: @Jason Bourhill I've attached a jpg of the drawing Wow, what a cool, clean and simple user interface. And it runs on Linux ! Beside DXF, I could read all of your File Formats : EPS, SVG, (2D Vector Formats) …
  • Just a term and tool from the 3D mesh Modeling Area. Opposed to Solids, Meshes have no real curves, Circles don't have a center or radius information, they are just Polygons with n+edges. Just enough n that it looks round enough, not too much n t…
  • No But it is "free" So I can install and activate it on any test installation on any Machine or VM without any risk. (And Bricsys is happy about the broad user base and large number of Shape installations) If Shape runs well without crashing, …
  • And generally Solids are only as intelligent as the data you used to create them. If you have a tessellated Mesh freeform object that you managed to convert into a Solid, it will still be based on the source. It can't recognize that it should be …
  • That is very good ! Currently not many crashes from my side recently. Mac v18 meanwhile grew up, v19 testing is Windows only and because of the license issues I have to wait for Shape's compatibility on all Linux distributions. A few Shape test…
  • If your demo ends and you need some further tests you can file a Service Request and ask for another month of testing period. That was what I did before buying Bricscad. As for a weaker Mac Version. For me it looked a bit like my SRs for Mac wer…
  • I think the Mac Version came usually somewhere in February (?) Ouch, didn't realize the zoom issue as I work with Pen Input and have no Scroll Wheel - I have to navigate with a 3D Connexion Device. Same behavior on Mac (Mojave?) for latest v18 S…
  • I'm coming from the Mac side and can confirm the stability issues. Only the last version of v18, are what I would call stable. Now I can really work with it in production. I built a Windows 10 PC as I couldn't wait for BC v19 (Mac or Linux) too. …
  • @Knut Hohenberg said: Simply save to r12 dwg or dxf. I did that in the past. There was anything that was not satisfying so I went back to Vectorworks as a file converter or 3DCONVERT. But I can't remember what it exactly was. Would have …
  • Great news !
  • Floors and Ceilings are no Problem so far for me. (Not sure about any risks in Bricscad ?) As I always separate the Structural Slab from an additional Slab for my Finish Floor package ! But that comes from Vectorworks where I have no risk or pro…
  • I don't think so. (Same in Vectorworks) And if I look at the files from Revit that my clients send, it looks like everything that would be like a single Wall, is separated into individual Wall sections along every room. Maybe exactly for that r…
  • It is "3DCONVERT" But maybe excluded from Shape's toolkit. (EDIT : yes, looks so) You would need Bricscad.
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.
