Re: view 2 drawings side by side

Just open the drawing you want and then use the Import feature to open the second drawing on the same screen. But what it sounds like you want is the ability to place the already opened tabbed drawings on different monitors by designation.

Re: SOLVED. Tangential Arc drawing off of another arc.

CVH. You are right. The results are two different solutions. The first one is tangential, the other way as Husky suggested is just a trim of two congruent arcs. I tried rotating the result to make it fit on top of the existing two arcs drawn with Tangent Circle tool. It was close but not and exact f...

Re: SOLVED. Tangential Arc drawing off of another arc.

Thanks Husky. That is how AlphaCam works and does it. Didn't think to try that either. That is even faster.

SOLVED Re: Tangential Arc drawing off of another arc.

Thank you CVH. That worked just fine. I was so focused on an ARC function I didn't even think to look in Circles. I can handle exploding and trimming as desired.

SOLVED. Tangential Arc drawing off of another arc.

I use a CAD/CAM program called DDX Easystone in addition to QCAD, and in their software, it has limited cad tools but the ones it does have are simple and powerful at the same time. In the attached dxf file of a traditional countertop drawing, I am trying to draw two arcs that connect tangentially. ...

Re: How do I use the Point tool to create a relative point

Also command line will allow this using the @ symbol in front of your coordinates in this format (@5.2,0) of your selected original/previous point

Slow start up

I can say after the April Win10 update my QCAD/QCAM takes 5 minutes to load from startup before it is stable and useable. I just boot to my Linux partition now to use it.

Mobile version of QCAD Pro

Is there anything in the works for a mobile version for tablets. If not, Andrew would you want to consult and get paid to develop one for some friends of mine in Portland, OR

Re: Using a List of Coordinates / Importing Coordinates

Could this be taking a step further by running a script that initiates the opening of a selected csv file and using the script to input these for you. We do this very same thing to trace shapes and this would speed up the manually cut and pasting that our students would be doing. If this is possible...

Re: Hatching workaround - for diagrammatic purposes only!

Clive this is awesome. I vote this as a good avenue to do hatching. I am used to tracing on digitizers and this will be a breeze.

Thank you so much. I feel honored you would use my drawing as a help me doc.

Re: Hatch has stopped working in QCAD Pro Version: 3.21.2.0 (3.21.2)

Thanks Husky, This tool was drawn only with QCAD. One thing I am finding with the offsetting feature now with more time and use, is that it will overlap in certain conditions. These overlaps are so small it is difficult to see. So I just pay attention to that more. Also sometimes the precision is so...

Re: Hatch has stopped working in QCAD Pro Version: 3.21.2.0 (3.21.2)

The drawing is still misbehaving. If anyone has insights please do tell. For now I am re-drawing this particular tool.
