  • Thanks Daniele, I'm unable to share the files because they are for a client and have NDA in place. Digging deeper I think it could be because I am using 2 different computers to edit the files which is synced over PCloud, therefore the mapped loca…
  • @RSW said: I don't mind checking on the website from time to time to see if there is a new point release, but having to log in each time before being able to see if there is actually a new point release is imho a waste of time. Just make …
  • @Knut Hohenberg said: No use to follow my advice, Michael's answer is correct. This seems to be a problem not only on Linux, if I change display scaling to anything other than the recommended 125% on my windows box, BricsCAD's GUI suffers b…
  • I also get the scaling issue as you have shown, but I will try the original cui also. Thank you !
  • Thanks Michael, It's a strange one this, my desktop with a 4k monitor is ok but it's my laptop (also 4k 15") where the problem is. I also prefer 175% and have tried the other sizes without success. So I turned the interface scaling to Normal whi…
  • I have a colleague who invested £10k about 7 years ago for the latest product rendering package from Adesk, I think it was called Showcase. Anyway about 3 months after his investment the same software was bundled with Inventor, ACAD and a few other …
  • I tried Linux 21 beta and the problem seems to be fixed.
  • @James Maeding said: Paying for the tools is not the hard part. Its when they start telling us we asked for things they decided to do to help their business. That is when I lost faith in adesk. No problem if they simply say they need to make m…
  • Also happens for me on Linux, black cross hairs and no way to change the colour. I end up having to use a white background.....then I get a headache.
  • I'm expecting the perpetual licenses to be scrapped next just like Adesk did in 2017. I refuse to rent my tools to accomplish my job!
  • I have the same issue and actually thought it was me (operator error/getting older) but it does seem like you have to be much more precise with your mouse to engage a snap point. Very frustrating.
  • I'm having the same issue with the Windows version, currently crashing when using the manipulator to move geometry or components. Doesn't happen with the Linux version.
  • Wow, thank you so much for your detailed response. I am using Linux for the trial of Mechanical and for some reason there is a display bug which does not show all of the listed options on the component panel. Hence the reason I can't assign materia…
  • I can't get mine to work and can't install the 3dConnexion drivers.....given up trying to find a solution.
  • I created a support ticket asking when v20 would be available and they sent a beta link download.
  • I am forced to use Vault at my current workplace, its dreadful, clunky and a complete PITA! I avoid all Awfuldesk software for many reasons. M-Files is a good alternative document management software and I have used that extensively with CAD packag…
  • I'm struggling with this also, i can't even get to work. You would think 3DConnexion would make this easier !? I'm going to ask them for any advise.
  • Thanks Michael, I used Font Manager from software manager and installed all the windows fonts which worked great! Next task is to install the 3D connexion drivers for my space navigator......
  • @hans fredholm said: An imported PDF drawing A2 size makes work very slow! Is there a way to simplify the regeneration of the PDF to make work go faster? I have noticed this a lot and would be interested to know of any solutions because I us…
  • Or is there a way to select a nested part within an assembly using the View Base command. I can only choose the top level file ?
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.
