  • I agree with Roy, if the background is black then switching to a white background usually solves the pixelation issue for inserted PDF's and (scanned) images. Ideally it should not make a difference for full colour images so this is something that c…
  • Do you have ESNAP turned on? If yes and you are close to a point that the cursor could snap to it may change the direction of the extrusion towards the direction of the snap point upon releasing the mouse button (but not actually snap to that point)…
  • A question... do you have boundary detection enabled in the selection modes? If yes turn it off and see if it makes a differences. When I am using mechanical components and inserting those into a drawing there is a more than average chance this may…
  • Were the inserted components perhaps created in V18? They have changed the parameter update algorithm in V19. I was/am experiencing several issues with V18 parametric components, e.g. when creating an array the component would get lost and upon dis…
  • The Logitech G5xx series gaming mouse is quite nice too, I'm using two of them for a few years now without issues. Especially the simple changing of resolution (speed) for switching between quick or fine work is nice and for me they work better than…

  • Yes, that is my suspicion as well, that it is a processing issue in the 3D environment, though it is way more likely to happen when the boundary selection detection is on in the selection modes toolbar or when using the mechanical workspace placing …

  • Are you still working with V11 or is this issue also occuring in a more recent version?
  • Another thing, without having looked at your file yet, is that you may need to create a rigid constraint between some faces to make it change properly and sometimes it is as simple as rotating the object 180 degrees across the proper axis to make it…
  • Yes I experience random crashing as well, mostly when I am in 3D Mechanical using components or the selection modes to automatically recognize boundaries for extrusion or placing components on a surface plane. Once in a while it will suddenly crash.…

  • Jim, I understand why you are doing it the way you are doing things given the issues you are having, though do think some things are workflow related and other come from lack of fully understanding features/tools because of the documentation not bei…
  • Thanks Jason for confirming the file naming using commas was causing issues, as I suspected this might be one of the causes of Jim's troubles as well as handling components as plain xrefs. It's good to read how you fixed this as I wouldn't have tho…
  • @John Chadwick said: For reference – I still have V16 of Bricscad on my computer – When I open a drawing in V16 and go to the “Print” command – it works fine – Allows me to select my office printer – All Good. It should still work this way, …
  • If you have a PDF editor (not just a viewer) then you can export the PDFs or a part of it as a PNG file with a resolution of 150 DPI minimum and insert that into Word (by using insert image/picture and **not ** copy/paste). Another option is to exp…
  • Another question, if you update the links through the drawing explorer XREF section, do the components show up as red or black in the mechanical browser? I just did the XREF update route again and notice that the components were still listed as red …
  • @Jim Canale Sure no problem, I should still be around next week I get the reasoning for locking, I do this from time to time as well (or freeze layers temporarily) but normally not for the final version unless it is a layer that should usually nev…
  • Regarding the security issue, you may want to read the comments section of this blog article, it is at times highly entertaining to see how Autodesk staff member is trying to wiggle itself out of the corner he/Autodesk painted themselves in. https:…
  • @Michael Mayer said: - I built a PC on Windows now too. As I still did not find adequate peripheral freelancer and office Software so far, my administration is is still on Mac. That is where I could see bad hidden Windows things …
  • @Jim Canale said: I was also scolded for using the feature found in the Drawing Explorer to change the component paths. But that feature has been there through several versions. If they didn't want people to use it, why hasn't it been remove…
  • @David Waight said: The second part is what I would like someone else to try is to check the text box in Settings for "Convert TTF text to geometry" This should then give you a .pdf with all the text and dimension text exploded. It w…
  • Apparently that option is not there by default in BricsCAD. It would be nice to have though as I do have projects where the final deliverables are required to have all Xrefs bound into the master drawing(s).
  • @JoshLPL said: @Hans De Backer yeah that is similar to Autocad but it seems in Bricscad that you are only allowed to save sheets if they are in different drawings. I can save a sheet list from within a single drawing using the publish comman…
  • @Torsten Moses said: "because V19 crashes upon opening those drawings" maybe, try V19 installation with the updated installer V19.1.06-2 ... the initial "06-1" installer had a defect, not properly registering the AEC Civil custom object e…
  • @Robert said: You can use the "3D constraints" under the solid ribbontab. Use the "distance" tool and select 2 oposite faces of the cube. You can now enter a distance value for the two selected faces. It also works when selecting edges of…
  • Hi Maxim, I found the hierarchical BoM> @Maxim_Shilovsky said: Could you please describe the action you performed to get the hierarchical BoM? I've just checked with the BricsCAD V19.1.06 (x64), and the hierarchical BoM was available. To add…
  • There could be several reasons for why this is happening, one thing I have noticed in the past is windows explorer preview locking file access if the file is selected and the preview is showing. Disabling preview in Windows Explorer may solve the is…
  • The funny thing is that earlier this year I asked if DGN import was going to be implemented in the near future and the response from the local distributor was that this was not likely as there is no high demand for this but this could change if dema…

  • This is something that happened to the SheetMetal and BIM modules in the past too, first they were introduced in Platinum and once fully developed were transferred into modules. Fortunately those already on Platinum and maintenance were grandfathere…
  • There are two flavours of OpenType fonts: OTF - OpenType PostScript style TTF - OpenType TrueType style. BricsCAD can use OpenType TTF fonts but not OpenType OTF fonts (though I think it should simply support OTF fonts as well as I can't see a va…
  • @Maxim_Shilovsky said: There is the Hierarchical type of Bill of Materials included in BricsCAD V19 Mechanical. In this mode, all components grouped by subassembly, and each component has a serial number clearly indicated which subassembly it …
  • Offline help is indeed still very useful to have, especially when you are at a place that has no or no good/reliable internet access and you want to look something up. The assumption of always on fast internet access may apply to large parts of the …
