Re: [Answered] Perimeter of an ellipse

Yes, thanks Andrew. Number of iterations? Or is that dependent on particular setup/specifics of the drawing (such as ellipse ratio)? (I think if I tried to read the code, it'd be like looking for a needle in a haystack :D ) I am just curious as I had just watched an entertaining video on the subject...

[Answered] Perimeter of an ellipse

Question: I just watched a neat video on the perimeter length of an ellipse. What formula/approximation does QCAD use?

Attached is one of the files I was working on. It is only 38 KB in size.

Edit: what application was this file saved from?

Re: Green Coordinate Text ?

Nice! However must move the pointer to see update as just pressing F8 will not change display until pointer moved. (A suggestion?)

Re: Move command

A couple ways to move entity(ies) by selecting and "gripping" to move. (You can also use the MOVE/COPY MV command) If you have selected one or more entities you can move an individual node (and move/extend/contract the attached selected entity(ies)). That is if you actually select the node - select ...

Re: Hi from Scotland

Bob, welcome. I am so envious of you getting the plasma table. Plenty of guinea pigs here. :lol:

Seriously - best forum, best advice, best place to discover QCAD. QCAD has probably the best support I've ever seen.

Very best

Re: dimension text colour

Hi. I've not seen that option. However, my workflow will be to give dimensions their own layer and use a specific colour to layers labeled "Dimensions". I might have multiple layers and their sub-layers. Each layer represents a certain part of the drawing (build) and each part will have it's own dim...

See if that helps. 2) Rename QCAD.ini (or QCAD.conf (depending on your OS). Restart again and see. 3) Select all and set all line weights to a know value then hunt down t...

Re: Dimension properties

I can't agree with CVH more... the small fee for QCAD is so worth it.
