Hi,

QCAD is a 2D program! Your drawing contains 3D entities what leads understandably to unexpected behavior in QCAD.

If you flatten it to 2D (Menu/Misc/Modify), change the Dim settings from Arrow to Tick, reduce the size of the DIM text from 3 to 2.25, remove the double dimensioning then ..................... it will work just fine in QCAD. :wink:
Work smart, not hard: QCad Pro

If a thread is considered as "solved" please change the title of the first post to "[solved] Title...". Thanks!
