Problems / Drawing lines with 2D objects?
« Last post by Jeffin90620 on Today at 10:03:04 PM »
I seem to recall the ability to draw a line using a 2D object (such as a circle or square), but I can't figure out which search terms to use to find out.

Is anyone familiar with this?

I've never had to do that. I paste the copies of the configuration files into the "Config" folder located in my "Documents" folder (This PC > Documents > TurboCAD 2017 Professional x64 > Config).

On my system, the C:\ root has "Documents and Settings", but entering that folder takes me to "C:\Users\".  From there, I move down the folder tree as shown below.

C:\Users\Jeff\Documents\TurboCAD 2017 Professional x64\Config

I still have to be in Administrator Mode to edit or add anything.

I have been copying my V15 configuration into successive versions of TurboCAD for years. 

If you accepted the default installation locations, you will have to have to be in Administrator Mode to add files to the folder.  You will also have to add the new commands to the desired menus.

Problems / Re: Entity Extents Failing

I may have figured out the problem.

No, I did not figure it out.  I kept the 3D objects as 3D, but after a couple days of sporadic modifications, I noticed that the Coordinate Systems (Entity and Extents) were not being remembered and, as near as I can tell, were now identical to the World settings.

Guess this is a bug, but I don't know how to replicate it in order to report it.

Thanks Andy H for the tip. I'll try this and see if it works in TC Pro Platinum 2017 ....

After reading your post, Murray, I thought that Hermes seems like a good agent for disposing of one's money so.....I didn't like the color and logged off without buying anything.

I Googled and discovered that one that changed hands for $1.9M, it was an exclusive one-off, the $375K item is available to order, commonplace!
If I bought one, I'd not have anything to put in it afterwards.

Jeff and Henry,

Thanks for the replies.  We have identified the issue and are working to fix it. Jeff put me on the right track with the block names.

When you make a block in the drawing it asks for a name and defaults to Block_X where X increases as the number of block in the drawing increases (We have since found a setting under Options|Auto Naming that removes this, and that should help some) .  If you do not change the name from Block_X when you create it it keeps that block designation when you use the block to make a symbol.  If you now take that symbol to a new drawing, and that drawing happens to have a different item using the Block_X, when you insert it you will be asked to overwrite the existing blocks.  If you choose no you cannot get the new symbol
 in, if you choose yes it changes all the Block_X to the one in the symbol even though that is not what you want it to do.

Jeff, you can duplicate this by making a couple of blocks on a new drawing, but when doing so be sure to let the default Block _0 and Block _1 be the names.  Next save them as symbols, Name them something other than Block_0 just to simulate what we did. Close that drawing and open another new drawing.  Make a couple more blocks different than before but still named Block_0 and Block_1.  Now drag your symbols over and watch the original blocks in the drawing change to the new symbols. Pretty neat but defiantly not what we wanted to happen.

Henry,  We use symbols since we want to standardize how the drawings look. We are also using templates to start from since about a quarter of each drawing is the same to start with. We are coming over from Autosketech and have used symbols there for years.  It is much easier to get symbols out of a library then trying to pull them from old drawings.

I will attach one of our templates so you can see what our starting schematics look like.  We add other items as needed to show the interconnect.  Theses are used to show how we connect the research equipment into the aircraft. These templates will have some of the symbols that still have to old block designations on them.  You can see this by using the Selection Information Palette and clicking the + sign by the top group graphics pull down. If you look at the symbols on the drawings you will see that some still have the Block_X designations while others have a full Name (the Preliminary on the smaller page).

The fix: Go in and make sure that every symbol has a unique block name and then go back to all the templates and replace all the incorrect symbols with the new ones. Glad we only had the templates done and not all the infrastructure drawings.

Thanks again for the help.

John

Very nicely done, as always. How about a lipstick tube or compact to give some scale?

Thanks. I just happen to have one of those...
