Re: Print Problems

Now here's a funny thing: After I had done all the print tests in my earlier post, I opened a new untitled drawing and copied the contents of one of the drawings that produced the first problem (lots of printer warnings) into it. When I hit Print it went straight into the correct print screen! And n...

Re: Print Problems

Hi Eric I think it has got to be Big Sur (why did I ever upgrade I always ask myself!!) So - I'm running Big Sur and v. 5.02b4. But I've tried with earlier versions down to v. 4.91b3 and it produces the same problem. With most existing drawings if I try to print (to save to PDF) I get this: Screensh...

Print Problems

Hi Eric I'm having all sorts of troubles with the Print command. It doesn't show the usual window with the PDF button at the bottom and either crashes RealCADD or gets endless printer messages that I can't stop! I don't actually want to print - I want to save as PDF. I think there must be a bug? Che...

Re: Big Sur?

Hi Eric Problem solved!! All good again. Thanks very much. I guess I hadn't used Beamcamber for a while ... Does the anti-aliasing option affect the quality of a PDF, or a JPEG from a RealCADD drawing?? Is it better to have anti-aliasing checked for printing to PDF or saving to JPEG? I have to say I...

Re: Big Sur?

I still have a problem with my Beamcamber script. It produces a text file which I open in Prefit to create a 3_D surface that I can open in MacSurf. The text file should look like this: test.jpg But it's gone into engineering mode like this: test2.jpg Which Prefit can't read I can send you the whole...

Re: A request

Absolutely Perfect. :mrgreen:

Thank you very much indeed.

Still got a problem with my beamcamber script – see other post.

And the drawings seems much darker and bolder with b3 than with b2 – is that deliberate??

A request

Hi Eric I am increasingly having to produce DXF files of drawings of components for CNC cutting. The parts that I draw are often quite complex shapes, consisting of polygons with hundreds of sides – like this: Screenshot 2020-11-15 at 17.05.31.png CNC cutting can't cope with discontinuous path lines...

Re: Big Sur?

So I discovered – my Beamcamber scripts don't work :( :(

Eric – will they work do you think when you fix it?

I can send you a copy of the scripts if necessary??

Otherwise no problems so far

Cheers -- George

Re: Minor Bugs!

Hi Eric OK – you are correct of course – if you have previously entered data in Static Parallel, then mm gets you to the Cutting tool. But it had me fooled for several hours trying to understand why mm had stopped working! Same with Cut and extend - if you have previously entered something in Chamfe...

Minor Bugs!

If you use Parallels on Static and then leave it set on Static, mm doesn't get you to the Cutting tool – it loads up the Static parallels window and inserts the second m in the Number box. mm (and mmm) work fine if Parallels is left on Dynamic And also (nothing to do with parallels) uuu doesn't get ...
