  • Michael, Roy: I finally got it to work as you described. For the longest time, the CTRL key was doing absolutely nothing. I then remembered I had a mouse pointer locator installed under Ubuntu Linux that was activated by the CTRL key. Every time I…
  • I was finally able to download a copy last night. I tried numerous times during the day on Chrome and Firefox under Linux and Chrome under Android and all failed. The mode of failure is what attracted my attention. Usually a download will show some…
  • I just looked up 'Marquee' in BricsCAD and got no hits so I'm not sure what you're referring to. Your use of 'vertices' is much better that my use of 'grips' as it's more accurate. Vertices is what I meant but couldn't think of the proper term. I'…
  • Richard Webb: As I mentioned, my old app would move the grips within the window and leave any grips outside the window alone. And, yes, you could end up with some odd results if you didn't take precautions. For any entity that straddles the dividin…
  • There is no path curve. All you have are two solids. The method I outlined uses a crutch to allow DIVIDE to do the heavy lifting. I'm looking for something that can do it without creating a phony element. Does such a method exist? That's the quest…
  • Also just tried on Android using Chrome. No book!
  • Robt: I just tried again using a different browser (Firefox) with the same result. I'm on Ubuntu Linux usually using Chrome as a browser. What Operating System are you using?
  • Hint to tech support ... When I was an active white hat hacker protecting my clients from SPAM, I used TMDA (Tagged Message Delivery Agent) to force a confirmation from the sender to release his/her/it's first email. Basically, the sender needs per…
  • Tijs said - "Right, sorry about that, I will eliminate that dependency asap." I assume he means to fix the 'make' file and recompile the whole shebang.
  • There's no 'fixing' the current release short of recompiling and reissuing the product. Any attempt to locate and supply the library, even if BricsCAD were to start, does not mean it's stable. Sit back and wait for a proper fix. Don't start inst…
  • @Michael Mayer I wrote software professionally for 40 years, the last 15 exclusively on Linux. Knowing your way around a command line is a benefit on any operating system. Do a 'man tar' to get all the options for the tar command. Entering the le…
  • It would appear that the tar ball you have isn't an installation environment, but the actual execution environment from an install. The best place to put the executable environment would probably be: /opt/bricsys/bricscad/v19/ I'd nuke whatever i…
  • Normally you cd to the destination directory and while sitting in that directory issue: tar -xzvf /where/ever/the/tar/ball/is.tgz Then typically look for an install script something.sh and run it.
  • Tijs: Can you put a selection in the Linux menu system as well so folks don't have to do it manually?
  • V19 is apparently released. I just downloaded it. However, it doesn't put an icon in the menu and the shell script fails: bill@bill ~$ /opt/bricsys/bricscad/v19/bricscad.sh /opt/bricsys/bricscad/v19/bricscad: error while loading shared libraries:…
  • I'd also like to know when the Linux version will be available. I keep checking the site for the Linux demo and it's still maxed out at 18. Sending a request to sales for a release date was completely ignored.
  • I had the same problem and started an incident with support. Here's their answer: During the life-cycle of BricsCAD [Linux] V18 our developers have decided to abandon direct printing to other physical and virtual printers and instead to always use …
  • @Michael Mayer Yes, certain things can be accomplished multi threaded, but the vast majority of all processing is going on single threaded. It's simply the nature of the CAD beast as there's little opportunity to multithread. You're not having iss…
  • If folks think it has something to do with processing ability, that is either at the CPU or GPU level. The amount of RAM available to the app and the O/S also plays a part as 'thrashing' ruins performance. Why not start listing your CPU hardware an…
  • @Michael Mayer Look up Bohmian Mechanics aka Pilot Wave Theory.
  • @Jason Bourhill @Knut Hohenberg @Hans De Backer Thank you all for taking your time to work on my drawing. I'll check the documentation for all the mentioned commands to see what they do. I'll also investigate Blender at some future date as I've…
  • @Tom Foster I'm an EE, so I respect antenna radiation. My wife and I have smart phones because you can't get a wired line on the island. I almost never put the phone to my ear, opting for speaker phone operation instead. My Internet connection is f…
  • @Tom Foster Without electronic sniffing gear it's impossible to know what's going on at any moment. Wireless is inherently unreliable and is why they build in switching functionality so it can hop around till it finds an opening to transmit a signa…
  • Could this be wireless interference between wireless products? Take inventory of all the wireless devices and turn them off one by one to see if the suspected mouse comes back to normal operation. Don't forget WiFi routers, and even computers using…
  • @Knut Hohenberg I tried to post a sample dxf but the forum web interface wouldn't accept it. When I export from CYCAS as dxf and open the file or import the file into BricsCAD everything exported is on layer 0. What a mess. I exported a simple la…
  • @Michael Mayer As an Electrical Engineer and a software developer, I am extremely comfortable at the command line. Don't get me wrong, I prefer a GUI environment because it's faster than typing and GUI apps are easier to use in most cases. For Br…
  • @Jason Bourhill I tried your suggestion, but on V18 in Platinum mode, I don't have a 'Blockify' command.
  • @Joe Dunfee I'm a retired professional software developer and software development manager. During many decades of working on mainframe and PC software, I wrote my fair share of documentation. I'm also a software book author (1100 pages). When I vi…
  • @Michael Mayer That 'cool, clean and simple user interface' also means that BricsCAD looks like the controls of the space shuttle to me. Coupled with the fact that all the documentation assumes AutoCAD level knowledge leaves a non CAD pro like me h…
  • @Joe Dunfee CYCAS purports to export the following file types: DXF, EPS, SVG, LWO, POV, 3DS, GTS . Trouble is, several of those do absolutely nothing. I believe the developer put some of those in as a stub or placeholder and never got around to put…
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.
