Problems / Only Hidden line render shows when I use Render Scene Enviroment
« Last post by Pjay on Today at 11:03:43 AM »

There is also spot to select weather you want the center marks to show up when you dimension it, under Dimensions, Diameter, Advance format, Center marks, when I do a drawing for layout work I find it helpful to have some dimensions on the stencil just to verifie every thing is the right size.

Wow, that rendering is absolutely stunning.

Thanks Steve...

This is better I think.... Changed to Gamma 2.2 and Brute force + Estimator in the Renderstyle... 7 threads, 4 hours rendertime @ 1664x1000 pixels... Full Sun Dean...  :D

For marking centre of circles.  I use a Cross (from the 'points' tools),  and either, As Torfinn says use the Seke keyboard C,  or using centre snap.  After selecting the cross but before placing it, I go into its properties and change the size to what I need for the drawing.

You can offset the circle , use a offsetdistance = R+1-R and you will have a small mark there, or Select line tool and move the cursor over the edge of a circle, press C on you keybord and you start to Draw a line from center of the circle

General Discussion / Re: Extrude region
« Last post by Dean on Today at 09:13:45 AM »
I guess it will be harder to implement in TC to detect 2D region for Quick Pull like BricsCAD. In TC if I modify the 2D profile, the extruded solid will also follow. In BricsCAD there is no history so the result solid will not affect after change the profile.

See attached video
does this help.
I used SEKE's  :)
copy in place
create surface from profile
quickpull

it took seconds..

though I always tend to use old school methods of converting 2d to 3d.

General Discussion / Re: Arc Start/End/Included cannot snap to tangent
« Last post by Dean on Today at 08:59:17 AM »
I think it is not a tangent snap, the arc length is different, the guide is a circle and not a line, that's the problem I think.

see attached video  :)
It works,it's just a precision thing,it's tangent to the arc.
You imported geometry,it wasn't native TC  ;D,it could be anything.

Problems / Mark the Centre of a circle
« Last post by Neilb59 on Today at 07:46:56 AM »
Hi,

I have done a 2D drawing to use as a template for an instrument panel, I have a number of "holes" that I would drill out on the actual job, how do I mark the centre of a circle so I know where to punch for drilling

Many thanks for your assistance

Neil
