  • For BricsCAD issues you're best to raise a support request. Look for SR92431 in the release notes of a future update. Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts
  • Express Tools for BricsCAD includes a utility to create linetypes. Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts
  • It looks like you are using a text STYLE in AutoCAD with a fixed height. If you do the same in BricsCAD, then your script will work as expected. Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts
  • @Tom Foster said: Should add that the only visual style that uses ctb is 2D Wireframe - because it's not really a Style, but is the 'native' representation of the vector geometry. All the other Styles are rendered derivatives of the geometry, …
  • This is because Sketchy is a rendered visual style. These type of visual styles don't use ctb values and when printed, print out as an image rather than vector. You can adjust the how a rendered style displays by adjusting it's VISUALSTYLE. Regards…
  • Perhaps try creating SECTIONPLANE then use SECTIONPLANETOBLOCK. There is an option with section planes to output to an external file rather than to block. This mimics the automated process provided with BIMSECTIONs. Usage scenario 3DMODEL with SEC…
  • Have you considered using a FIELD? Depending on your requirements this would be a non-programming method to achieve the same. Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts
  • @rkmcswain said: I just realized that the "SAVE" command in BricsCAD does not do the same thing as the "SAVE" command in AutoCAD. "SAVE" in BricsCAD is the same as "SaveAs". In AutoCAD, "SAVE" writes to the chosen drawing name, but doe…
  • This would be possible in BricsCAD BIM using BIMSECTION. Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts
  • It sounds like you haven't used BASEFILE to set a default template. Your LISP relies on BricsCAD starting using a default template, which it then closes. I would also check that you have set STARTUP = 0. If it's set to = 1 you will prompted with a …
  • GRIPS work too. Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts
  • @Roy Klein Gebbinck said: The V18 Help shows that a Pro or Platinum license is required for the _Extrude command. The V19 Help for the same command tells you it is available for all licenses. Obviously something has gone wrong here. Also doe…
  • @MDunn said: Jason, That works nicely. However, I notice the Title Block text & notes etc. in Paper Space were a lighter line-weight than the Model Space geometry. Tried it on another dwg, & the PDF was created upside down. …
  • @Roy Klein Gebbinck said: @Jason Bourhill 2 small hints: You can use findfile to check if the PDF-file already exists. If the file exists I would try erasing it before calling the _Plot command. If this is unsuccessful then the f…
  • @MDunn said: Jason, Thank you, I have learned LISP on the fly, only dangerous @ it; not expert level, but would like to learn more. Will give your example a try. It has been a wonderment why in AutoCAD when printing a PDF it always cre…
  • @Hans De Backer said: The created preview... is indeed a pdf. This pdf is opened using the default pdf viewer application registered with the operating system. As this seems to surprise some users we plan to also make it possible to view…
  • @MDunn said: Jason, How does one set it to print to the folder of the currently opened dwg? I don't see an option for that. Mike It would be nice if you could use environment variables and system variables in the folder options such …
  • @Michael Mayer said: And I don't really get that contradiction as there still are 2 online Activations for 2 machines. That is outdated. Not only today (single) users have more than 1-2 machines in use, they also use more than …
  • @MDunn said: BUG! WARNING! For anyone that reads this, the "Italic" does NOT work. When I tried to Italicize the text below by clicking the Italic button, it put an "Underscore" in front of the highlighted text. BUG! Mike It does wor…
  • @Peter2 said: For "Print as PDF" - is there a default setting for output-folder, PDF-file format and all that stuff? Or just the standard "save file as .." dialogue? in SETTINGS change PlotOutputPath to your preferred folder. By default…
  • @Wiebe van der Worp said: 7 years later... Is there a working link, or can someone post a text where this information is confirmed? I.e. use on multiple computers of one license without concurrent use? Hi Wiebe, This is referenced in t…
  • @Casey Fry said: If that's not what you are referring to, then it must be a feature in a version later than 16... Print as PDF was introduced with V17. It would be useful if people declared their BricsCAD version when posting. If you have th…
  • @Casey Fry said: When I print PDFs from paperspace, some tabs print horizontally (landscape), and others print vertically (portrait), despite all of them being set to "landscape" in the page setup dialog. All of the print settings are the sam…
  • @jaykay said: But as I've said above, it would be really nice to take this process further and automate multiple file changes with one script. Try coupling your script with Roy's BKG_Batch. Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts
  • IMHO it would be useful if the forum included a tool to easily link to commands etc. available in HELP. e.g. OSNAPZ. Wouldn't need to be a direct link, could be just a search of help for that term. This would allow the poster to keep things brief a…
  • @Roy Klein Gebbinck said: @Jason Bourhill When you _BmInsert the file you do get an externally linked component, but not an xref. Yes, didn't inspect closely enough. More specifically, It's coming in as an anonymous block. Previously I'v…
  • Hi Eric, If you open the components that you are inserting with BMINSERT, then you can set how the component will be inserted from the Mechanical Browser. If you don't see this property, then you need to run BMMECH to convert the dwg to a component…
  • Hi Mac, I recommend that you raise a support request as it looks like it could be a bug, please make sure that you include an ETRANSMIT of the drawing file. You don't state which version of BricsCAD you're using (would be a useful forum feature), s…
  • @avscorreia said: Thanks. I'll give it a try. I would also raise an Support Request with Bricsys. I think the option of being able to set the PDF format output is valid feature request. Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts
  • Recent versions of BricsCAD now provide the option to ETRANSMIT multiple files at once. Users with older versions that support SHEETSETS can use this as a method to pack multiple files. Regards, Jason Bourhill CAD Concepts
