Problems / Re: Builti-In folder Woes
« Last post by Darryl W on March 25, 2019, 06:21:20 PM »
Fwiw this has came about after investigating why Ive recently had some problems with very slow manipulation of solid objects and or part trees with extruded objects. When I say slow I mean its always taking minutes to release a solid object in the model space as well as in the design director object information.

Is anyone else having these issues??

This seems to be happening when an object acis solid is selected and the audit options in the design director are active on as well. Solution turn off/uncheck  Audit Options by Design Director -> Options -> Show Audit Icons. Jeff all good now with the built-in folder.

You could take a look at Don Cheke's place and see if there is a Tutorial that suit your need's, even if most is made in Pro Platinum there are a Deluxe section too.
And the basic in PP is not that fare from Deluxe.


Problems / TC Deluxe 2D3D Basic Training program
« Last post by Shezadog on March 25, 2019, 02:52:19 PM »
Hi, I am trying to learn 3D on my own and have been trying to use IMSI's DVD training program to familiarize myself with the concepts and procedures of 3D drawing.  I have found it EXTREMELY frustrating as it seems quite poorly written, much less thought out.  Many details are left out and some of the things they describe just don't work.  Case in point.  In session three, I am told I can project the center point of a 3D circle onto a surface by referencing the center of a cylinder above the current plane.  It simply doesn't work.  This program is supposed to be specific to TC Deluxe but are they perhaps referring to Pro or something else where that function actually does work?  This isn't the first instance where I've had to simply give up on a concept they've presented and move on.

I've found IMSI's online User Guide, training materials on DVD and in print to be woefully inadequate on many levels.  (Many details are left out, forcing me to spend copious amounts of time trying to figure it out on my own, and some things they present are just plain wrong.)  Any words of wisdom as to how I might educate myself?  There just don't seem to be any books available, which would be my first choice.  I'm not a big fan of online documentation but would be willing to struggle through if there is a good source out there.

Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

General Discussion / Back from the dead

Well after a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOng absence, I'm kinda back from the dead. Well, I was supposed to die (in 2005), but it turned out that I'm too ornery to croak. So after a long hiatus, someone asked me to draw something and naturally, I went to TurboCAD. Unfortunately, I no longer had it because I lost a hard drive. Decided to check the forums and what do I find, I still have beta access. YAY.

You need to be in wireframe for ctrl c and v, in both drawings and also on the same workplane in both drawings.

You could Tile the 2 drawings and drag it over, after start moving press ctrl button and you will make a copy, or just close the original drawing and click no when TC ask if you want to save, that also should make a copy.

Does being in that mode mean everything is displayed as a wire frame? Right now, it is not. Just displayed as normally viewed architectural details, plans, etc.

TCW2018pp is not creating a new Built-In folder after renaming it to Built-Out Works@23032019.  :-[

If you still don't have a Built-In folder, try starting TurboCAD in Administrator mode.  If that fixes the problem, then you will probably have to continue running TurboCAD in Administrator mode because the contents of the Built-In folder are constantly updated and your system, apparently, requires extra permissions.

Are you in Wireframe display mode when copying and pasting?  If not, you probably won't like what you are getting.

When using these commands to 'copy' and 'set the copy' of a detail to another sheet, the detail is finally copied to another sheet, but is almost blown apart into some pieces. The text and leaders will be scattered and some of the blocks (i.e. screws) are blown up with some pieces not being able to be moved or deleted. There was a lot of information already on the sheet, where I was going to transfer the detail on to. However, when I copied the same detail to a blank sheet, the detail copied fine.
Any idea what is going on?
Thank you!

OK. Thanks. I am working on the road, I can load the program up and see functionality, but will not run any of the programs on CNC as it is at my home base plant in Memphis, TN.
