  • I was continuing to see this misbehavior, to a degree that was crippling our workflow, regardless of local or network paths. So I am elated to share that after much investigation (SR104177) the BC Support sleuths have identified a culprit: It s…
  • Your particular error is not one I've encountered, although I've had plenty of banging my head against the wall trying to get Projects and Sheetsets to work properly. For example, (SR104177) https://forum.bricsys.com/discussion/35975, which remains …
  • Check out the command options that give you more control over 3d constraints. For example, you can refer distances to WCS planes: : _dmDistance3d Select a first entity or specify [Use as/WOrld/BLock/selection options (?)]:wo Select referen…
  • Any news on working with formulas in fields?
  • @James Maeding I agree that there should be fewer fixed categories (and that drafting is an unhelpful term here). I always go to "Discussions" to check for new posts. I almost never use the "Home"/"Categories" link, and find it difficult to find o…
  • @Tom Foster said: ScottS are you able, as the design develops and elaborates, to progressively move objects from the Existing 'building' into the Removed 'building' (it remains in the same position in space). And to slice existing objects, so …
  • Others among us are struggling with this same question: https://forum.bricsys.com/discussion/35631 The approach I am experimenting with is to classify new and existing entities as separate "buildings" in BimSpatialLocations, in addition to managi…
  • Wow! Manipulator works on edges, too. It even translates and rotates coplanar edges as necessary to maintain planar surfaces when moving edges or faces into oblique positions! I had been wondering how to stretch or manipulate individual vertices of…

  • @juliek Thank you. This method of setting the same value in "Number From" field is helpful to know. However, once the number of views spills over onto multiple sheets, I lose control over where sections go and on which sheets. For example, all inte…
  • I get the same problems. I have tried to adjust text width in the properties panel as well as by double clicking the multileader and stretching the green text edit box, but both ways seem to change the width to the same constant for all scales. This…
  • @James Maeding said: They should be key-ins, not graphical picks I agree. What I really like about @RoatanBill's idea is how it would let you navigate the visibility of objects and/or layers "on the fly", i.e., in the middle of other command…
  • @RoatanBill said: An idea. Once you've started a command and the system is looking for your mouse input, i thought how handy it would be for objects to go transparent as you mouse over them. Enough to see the object, but transparent enoug…
  • From lack of response, I infer the desired functionality is not yet available. I just filed a feature request, SR103614.
  • For our architecture and interior design practice, it is indispensable to have both 3D models and 2D drawings, including plans, sections, elevations, etc., of course, but also axonometric and perspective projections of a 3D model, for all the reason…
  • My thanks to the Bricsys support team for its prompt attention to my support request (SR102407), and for providing a workaround with clear instructions, copied below. Following these steps, I am successfully able to view and access custom sheet prop…
  • Mine does not disappear, and it works in the middle of simple commands, e.g., line, move, copy. However, lookfrom does not seem to work during direct modeling commands, e.g., dmpushpull, dmextrude. Wonder why not. I don't know that I'd tried it befo…
  • Continuing to chronicle my efforts to tame the BricsCAD BIM beast, I am happy to report more progress (if anyone is listening): Project Browser and BimSections are playing nicer, although sheet sets are still misbehaving. One change I made was to …
  • I made some progress on this exercise, but still fail to follow the steps smoothly: With project browser's Sheetset Setup triggering unexpected errors as described above, I manually created a new empty sheetset ("proj_5.dst") from the sheet sets pa…
  • @Tom Foster said: Are you using the old offline Help chm? I've got used to the online Menu bar>Help>Help Help (don't panic - false alarm!) - any old search term usually gets there first go. My comment was not about finding the topic in…
  • @Michael Mayer said: I would be more interested in a simplified drawing Style. YES!! Good examples. Moments ago I was navigating yet again to find where in the twelfth nested level of support folder hell hides that _SectionSettings.dwg that…
  • I wblocked the model that had metric project units to a new file, in which project info now shows imperial units. In the wblock process I did lose some data, such as BIM spatial locations, maybe other info I've yet to notice..., but at least I am ab…
  • @James Maeding said: 2) The front page with various categories is so spaced out, that I think people are not using them like they maybe should. Looks like the list of categories has changed since I last checked, although still excessively sp…
  • I can see both use cases being prevalent. The user should be allowed to choose the names of generated blocks, and be given proper warning if (and only if) a block with the same name already exists in the target file, with the choice to overwrite if …
  • Submitted SR102027. The Sun-turning-off problem recurs consistently for me with Slice, in all its variations (command line, quad, toolbar, multislice, etc.). I may have wrongly remembered it happening with other commands; it seems to be unaffected …
  • Any progress to report on these issues with Sun properties and shadow rendering? I am encountering in v20 what may be a related bug: upon executing a 3D modeling operation, such as Slice, the Sun randomly turns off, and gets reset. Sun property Sta…
  • I believe you have to create new custom material textures manually; at least, I am not aware of a way to import full material definitions beyond the predefined set provided with BricsCAD. This help page explains the process: https://help.bricsys.com…
  • Is this why it seems impossible to keep lines of text aligned as soon as some have descending characters, stacked fractions, etc.?
  • @Michael Mayer said: Looks great ! And I second your feature requests. I want to add a wish for a way to temporarily hide the busy Hatches of cut elements for such non-technical presentation drawings. And a way to fill the who…
  • You are not alone. I've had the same frustration! After cursing and avoiding sheetsets for a while, I forget about it, yet it keeps recurring. At one point, I could forestall crashing if I remembered to close the sheetset before saving a .dwg, but t…
  • I'm struggling with the same question. The only way I seem to be able to modify, e.g., cut holes, chamfer, LConnect, etc., components is to BmDissolve them first, which loses the size information, even if I BmForm the solid back into a mechanical c…
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.
