I think it is because ....
large libraries of Google Warehouse
Sketchup very popular
Sketchup a competitor, therefore compatibility
No IFC in Shape to not cannibalize Bricscad
Would be interesting to see if Shape was able to pull over any Sketch…

Check this post on OSARCH.
It is just a pratice in conversions.
Of course, the solid to had to be way more precise.
Blender should be able to repair and optimize such Mesh Geometries.
Not sure about how much automation and about watertight testing
but Blender is also used for 3D printing.
So also Ultimaker's free Cura(?) Software could be helpful too.
Bricscad isn't the best App to deal with or to repair Meshes.
I am doing far easier with Vectorworks, which does some magic when
stitching Faces or converting Meshes. Like getting rid of duplicate Faces.
I think in such a case VW would fai…
I usually try again by exploding, to look for duplicated Faces
(usually brighter in OpenGL Shaded modes)
and try to select and delete until there is only a single Face.
If I find a hole, I try to close it with a 3D Face.
Then the typical Regions…
On latest Elementary (Ubuntu based, 5.3 kernel) Bricscad ran fine in the
past. But today it will disappear from screen as soon as I choose my
Workspace on Start Up dialog.
Bricscad works again on Elementary.
Either because V20.2.06 …
Yes, I agree it is not good and should not happen.
Just I personally have priorities in different aspects of Bricscad where
I would like to see spend Bricsys energy and extra love instead.
But of course, communication and surface is important too…
Yes, it should not be like this.
But there are just humans behind servers and software.
It was just my 2 cents workaround for users that are irritated by this behaviour.
I think it looks more frightened than it really is. Once you tried you may g…
My experience is that if you click to send the Post,
the Post is sent successfully.
What does not work sometimes is the feedback for the poster
that his site refreshes and shows the final post in thread.
If I experience any delay after sending,
I don't think this is low priority.
There are several different kind of options and command feedback in Bricscad that
can appear at different locations - or not.
Which all could appear at a smae position and available all the time like in other A…
I already learned that Autocad has dynamic Blocks.
Bricscad can load and read them, in most cases manipulate those
dynamic behaviors. But not create or edit these definitions.
As @Louis Verdonck said,
when you select a Layer in Layer Panel and press the new Layer Icon,
it will create a new Layer with the same Attributes as the selected Layer.
I always use this when creating Layers.
Never tried what happens when you do…
The problem here is that Bricscad crashes in the Profile Panel example
when the Cursor is moved while clicking. You can provoke that by
dragging the Mouse when clicking Profile Type Icons.
unfortunately still crashing.
Thanks @Joe Dunfee
I think Autocad, at least since the late 90ies, had 30 years of time to fix that
ignorance of real Units with its still negative influence around the whole App.
And as a customer of the Direct Modeling and BIM insi…
Here we use Meters for Dimensions and "think" Buildings in Meters.
But when you try to work in Meters or any other INSUNITS than Millimeter
you will always get into trouble later. I often tried but you will always run
anywhere into a dark corner …
Well in VW we got just 3 LODs to switch.
You decide for any Element on which, all or not LOD they will be visible.
So everyone can set Objects it as he/she likes.
Imagine a Symbol (ACAD=Block) of a wash basin,
where the 2D lines and curve will r…
But what I really would like to have for low LOD Sections
is that only Elements/Plies with "Structural" Tags
get full Color tint,
while secundary Plies like Insulations and (soft) Claddings
may stay white and keep their fine Outlines.
In Vectorworks I have that in Viewport Settings.
If the Cut Face appears as separate Plies of Compositions or
as a uni color of choice.
Also Model Space has a switch between detailed and simplified
representation. (And now 3 levels of detail whi…
I'd like multiple attachments per post.
Somewhere else I can start writing a post,
scroll up to a previous post and select parts of text,
get a "Quote" button rollover,

A bit more control about eMail notifications is my main wish.
Most of my other ideas are not must haves but just extra goodies.
In general I am not unhappy with the Bricscad Forum.
Maybe "Ask a new question" could be default over "New discussion"…
For me the Units were strange in Metric Units too.
When I imported a DWG export into Bricscad and
did Advanced Bimify, it recognized some of the Profiles.
Bricscad File was Millimeter Insunits.
But the Profile Naming (and Units ?) were off by 1:…

I can't see the Smiley Previews in Drop Down on Mac.
May be an Add Blocker ...
Not sure why, but after playing with Firefox's UBlock Origin,
I can see Smiley Icons again on Firefox and Safari as well.
I have the same settings.
I looked at them and hoped they would have been updated and I hadn't noticed.
Not sure which I should deactivate, without losing all notifications.
I have subscribed to whole Sub Forums only.
I think you can select "for new" and "for every reply" in settings.
I did not find anything in my notification preferences,
nor when I subscribe to a sigle thread manually.
If I could see the reply text in email,
Also a good idea.
I think it would be a great help too,
if I would get only a new email notification for the first new
post of a Thread I subscribed - until I visit the Forum again.
Not a new notification for every next answer.
(I think that is pretty standard fo…
Not sure if I really understood your wish.
You could select and Copy the Edges,
to another Layer and show them on Sheets for embellishment (?)
(I'm not familiar wit 2D design line weight and styles in generated plans)
You should be able to align…
If you log into 24/7,
they added some example projects, including the latest Villa File.
The one from the V20 presentation videos.
It is basically BIMmed but AFAIK no Project set (?)
And there are some geometry flaws in it, so not poli…
