  • @James Cameron:  I'm having the same difficulties, V15.3 fixed most of it but still the occasional crash. Usually when printing to pdf. I'm using export to pdf more to avoid that situation. Sometime when closing one of multiple(tabbed) open drawi…
  • [quote] @Tijs Vermeulen: Hello Brian, Can you report this in a support request, and attach a backtrace? During V15 lifetime we have fixed several hard-to-reproduce crash-on-close issues, but apparently you still suffer fr…
  • Bricscad beta 16.0.07-01 is running on OpenSuse LEAP42.1 while v15.3.09 runs on OpenSuse 13.2
  • [quote] @Tijs Vermeulen: Make sure the directory /var/bricsys exists with full write/read access for every BricsCAD user.Normally the BricsCAD installer creates this directory with proper permissions.With Custom installations (for instance using …
  • [quote] @Scott McKenzie: I think duplication of parts is worse than a broken hierarchy, I have a common parts folder, off the shelf and custom components live in there and are referenced by multiple models.  Anything unique lives in the same fold…
  • [quote] @Mikael Nordvall: At our architects office we are using the 32-bit version of Ubuntu 12.04.5 with amd a-series apu:s and the amd catalyst proprietary display driver. We have been using BricsCAD since the start of the office and are ge…
  • [quote] @Tomas Polak: Hi, I looked at the file "very_slow" once again and it looks it has been imported form other software - all of the text and lines are created from small solids. So there are lots of 3D objects in the file - no wonder it'…
  • Bricscad 5.1.21 on distro Rosa R4, exhibits similar behaviour here. Also 5.2.03  beta on OpenSuse 13.2 exhibits is the same. Some files have become difficult to use as it is impossible to move around the screen with any confidence. It seems the Linu…
  • I think hplip has its own configuration dialogue - separate from cups.
  • [quote] @Carlos Fuentes: @Alexandru Branescu: Will the OpenGL version of the Linux stack come with v15?  What's the timeline for v15 making it to Linux? The multiple-cursor and o…
  • I am sure many Linux fans would like to make use of this feature as well.
  • [quote] @Hans De Backer: Sounds as if the display of snap markers is Off? This is controlled by flag 1 of the AUTOSNAP setting. [/quote] Autosnap was at 16. Not sure how this come about but changing it to 1 caused snaps to work as nor…
  • Sorry Guys - been away - yes got it now. Thanks for that correction. Brian
  • [quote] @Erik De Keyser:  @Onyeibo Oku: The existing BIM module will definitely not be ported to LINUX. But we are working on something better and which is planned to run on all platforms: Windows, Linux and Mac.  …
  • [quote] @Tijs Vermeulen: Did it work before for you in V14? If it did, try starting BricsCAD with fresh settings. Shut down BricsCAD, rename the file ~/.bricscad/config (for instance to ~/.bricscad/config_backup), then start Bri…
  • Hmm - no luck with any of these. For comparison Release 13.2.16 is on the same machine. Using the same drawing, entity snaps work normally.
  • [quote] @Knut Hohenberg: What makes you think that your problems are caused by differences between Arch linux and supported distros? I may be naive, but my bet is that BricsCAD will run on any recent distro, as long as you make sure all depe…
  • Are you still using Arch ? You probably should be using something else - a distro that Bricscad will support. I use OpenSuse but there are others.
  • Nice - the procedure creating a solid appears to be....set the length, then double click on the profile and it appears in your workspace.
  • Try something like this first cd /opt/bricsys/bricscad/v13 then check the output of LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ./bricscad This will most probably inform you of a missing 32bit library. It works for me on Rosa 2012 R1, but some hacks may be necessary.
  • [quote] And especially for Linux we know what we are talking about :-) Struggeling with many many many issues along so many distributions, many differences etc.; not to forget, several features are not yet available under Linux, …
  • We need more testing of the Solid Modelling work flow from Linux users to get a better idea of features not yet implemented or just not working. Can anyone report on their progress with Creating and manipulating Solids in Bricscad ? i.e. Creating…
  • Thanks for this suggestion. Setting GLSWAPMODE to 0 works best on this system. I need to conduct further testing, but the indications are good.
  • "I'll try to make some complicated assemblies and see how it goes. Direct modeling still feels a bit glitchy compared to other CAD softwares I've used in linux. However, I'm sure it'll improve with time" This would be useful. We can get some discus…
  • "A year after shelling out more than seven hundred bucks for a (don't laugh) "Pro" licence, I'm still waiting for Bricsys to figure out how to package its own software so that I can actually install it. Incredibly frustrating. My Linux licence won't…
  • Probably no joy for you but Bricscad 3.2.11 seems to work ok using Select Window > Centre the Plot > Fit to Page > Landscape. The window area can be seen in the Preview screen.
  • Bricscad Release 13.2.11 Yes - attempting to use draw order caused a crash here too. However drawings can be opened without any problem now. Its is still early days. More testing is needed yet.
  • System is 64bit. I am preoccupied with some other issues atm. However will try to make use of a Support Ticket at first opportunity.
  • Some links that may help. http://www.turboapps.com/ https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.grabcad
  • Thanks for your post. I will come back to this and use it as a guide for solid modelling in Bricscad. It seems like we have to jump through hoops yet for a while until the wxwidgets and 64bit upgrades make it into mainline. So much to do. I hope fo…
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.
