  • @Jim Canale said: @Michael Mayer said: I think the Tools offered in Quad by default may have changed from v17 to v19. The only ERASE I see is in a Drafting Workspace related Folder. I would never see ERASE as I only use 3…
  • Hi Robbie, Check out SMEXPORTOSM. This goes a long way to producing what you want. The command will iterate through an assembled model to generate flattened sheet metal of each component. Output is grouped by thickness. Having done this you could i…
  • @solloron1 said: I'm using v17, how are you able to perform boolean subtract with the array of holes? It doesn't appear to be working for me. The techniques that Roy and I have employed make use of Associative Arrays. This feature was introd…
  • @Roy Klein Gebbinck said: @Jason Bourhill You have posted the wrong zip. Whoops. Here it is Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts
  • Attach my take on this based around your model. There is a limitation with the model when the holes interfere with the topface of the upright. When this occurs you will find you can no longer change the length of the upright. This happens because th…
  • Hi Tom, If you have BricsCAD Platinum or greater, then you can: Use BMMECH to temporarily convert the blocks to components Then in the Mechanical Browser you will find an option to "Switch all to External", this will write the components out to f…
  • There isn't a Limit option with REVOLVE, suggest that your raise a SR to consider adding this feature. You can use pushpull to extend the curved pipe, but the extend face stays parallel with the start. This is in V19, the behaviour of pushpull and B…
  • I would select the image, then from the property bar check the background transparency state. Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts
  • This could be due to a bug in your particular version of BricsCAD. I know for the Windows version that there are later versions of V18. I would suggest that you try the latest version of V18, or V19 if you have a license for that. Regards, Jason B…
  • You could also take a look at DATAEXTRACTION to extract info out to a spreadsheet, manipulate it how you want, then paste back in as a TABLE. Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts Come to the Australasia BricsCAD Conference
  • In LISP you can use layoutlist to return a list of the current layouts. (LAYOUTLIST) ("Layout1" "Layout2" "Layout3") However, this doesn't necessarily return in the order they have been positioned. I believe Roy has spoken to this previously on th…
  • With DUCS, you can create a dummy solid to use for alignment, create your object, then delete the dummy solid. You could also MANIPULATE the object into position after creation. Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts Come to the Australasia Bri…
  • @daveedwards said: Does BricsCAD BIM support Relational Modeling of Building Components? In other words, is there a hierarchical link between things like a Wall and Doors and Windows placed in the Wall? What happens with a Wall containing Door…
  • @Jozsef said: Ilya, Per, Thanks for the info. Anytime I start my BricsCAD Pro I get the BIM components but not the mechanical. I am looking for the nuts, bolts and steel shape library and I cannot find it. I had this issue too. The com…
  • Foxit Phantom PDF has a plugin to convert a .dwg to .pdf An alternative approach with V19 would be to generate an FBX file, then upload to a site like Sketchfab for viewing. Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts Come to the Australasia BricsCA…
  • @daveedwards said: @Per Gogstad said: When it comes to the BIM part, the best model exchange option is to use IFC. I hear this all the time, but doesn't work with Revit clients. They simply do not get the information they n…
  • Indeed, sounds like a bug. You would need to raise a support request to get it investigated. A workaround could be done by customising your font mapping file "default.fmp". This file allows you to force BricsCAD to swap one font for another. In Bri…
  • A workaround is to change the properties of the Windows shortcut to force BricsCAD to start maximised. Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts Come to the Australasia BricsCAD Conference
  • Michael this quite an old thread, V19 is using Redway3D V4.3. I'm pretty sure that Bricsys ares using a lot more than 10%, it is indeed wonderful stuff. You can check the version using the REDSDKINFO command. V19 includes the FBXEXPORT command for e…
  • @Casey Fry said: Okay, I was able to boot to the old drive long enough to make a new profile based on my settings where I last left them and exported the "profile1.arg" file. On the new setup, I started over by uninstalling Brics, deletin…
  • There is an alternative approach for users with BricsCAD Platinum and above. Instead of trying to change the visibility of entities within a block, you can use BMMECH along with BMFORM to create a component with sub-components. Then BMINSERT into th…
  • @Tom Foster said: However! Just discovered that the wonderful facility in Structure panel, to HIDE or SHOW objects individually, does work within REFEDIT! So, problem solved, for me. Just to clarify (to me) the OP raised the point that HI…
  • Hi David, Perhaps raise a support request? The mechanical browser won't show 2D geometric constraints, but will show 2D dimensional constraints. These are displayed as Parameters. The animate option is a new feature with V19. It's a useful way to …
  • @Charles Alan Butler said: So it appears that BricsCAD will not be forced into True Color background only Index colors. Yes, looks like it's been like that for a while. I wrote this LISP to toggle between Black and White quite a while ago an…
  • You can unlink the sheet set association from DWGPROPS . See the button on the Sheet Set tab. Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts Come to the Australasia BricsCAD Conference
  • @RoatanBill said: @Jason Bourhill I tried your suggestion, but on V18 in Platinum mode, I don't have a 'Blockify' command. In that case you will need to manually create a block of each repeating entity, copy it to where it is needed, an…
  • @Jim Canale said: Thanks for your reply. Opened your assembly and moved the box. The insert did NOT move with the box. I opened the mechanical browser and noticed two coincident constraints marked in RED, whose objects are block / compone…
  • @RoatanBill said: @Jason Bourhill Thank you for the additional command to try. I've attached a jpg of the drawing I want to bring over to BricsCAD, one of many. It's minus the exterior walls, interior walls and roof for a bakery / re…
  • You can try DMSIMPLIFY following a conversion to 3D Solid. If your existing app is able to output 2D data in dxf form, then it may prove to be simpler, faster, and more accurate to use this info to re-create the 3D solid in BricsCAD. You'll also se…
  • Try DMSTITCH. You may need to first convert your triangles to REGIONs, depending on what type of entity that they are. At a guess, I would assume 3DFACES. Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts Come to the Australasia BricsCAD Conference
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.
