NikkiPollard:

Thank you: I followed up those two videos you cite.

The first, by Paul Tracy, is nice and clear, and concentrates neatly on the basics of 3D Snaps and Work-planes with just a few boxes. Although a wire-frame box in pictorial form can create odd optical illusions (a diametric cube appears as a hexagon with spokes), I found I could follow it reasonably well. Importantly, he demonstrates the point that simply dragging an object to what looks on screen like its intended new position... doesn't! I'd already found that, but didn't know why.

The other by TurboCAD's own people, covers a lot of ground but is a bit too much, too fast, for me. I'd have found it easier if like Paul Tracy, they'd kept to wire-frame images rather than very dark rendering that hides the objects' axes indicators.  I noted the demonstrated, corresponding 3D effect to the non-closed 2D Polyline, on an extrusion: as with Paul's video, showing how to avoid the pitfalls is as important as simply showing the results of use TC's controls all-correctly. Even so, as I've found with other videos in various places, to me it was more an expert demonstrating his use of it more than instructing how to use it.

Not conserned, but i would try to find them and set the space to a bigger number, if using world many People use the same as the planned print, aka 100 for a 1:100 print, but you will see if it is ok when changed and maybe give it a different size.
It will make the drawing more easy for TC to work with, and by that quicker.

Torfinn.

Thank you again for your help, which allows me to carry out some additional design work.

Should I be concerned and do something about your wording "Normally this is some Hidden line with to small spaces".

Again I thank you for your help.

Best Regards
Richard (quintain)

Maybe you can attach an exsample drawing where you have the problem, then someone will most likely figure out what's going on at your end.
And it can also be a good ide'a to put in some basic info about your machine, in your signature, as you will see the most people here have.

Have you try'd to do a Repair or Rename/ deleted the Built-in folder ??

Hi again
TCW Pro 2016 Plat' 64bit v23-2 build 61-2
Win 10 Pro latest (April 2018) update.

I attach a tcw & dwg file/s which I cannot 'Explode' the "Section-Main Cway" layer.

BTW I received the file in dwg format which I also attach; it was this dwg that I converted to tcw.

When I select almost any of the detail (lines, grid etc) in either tcw or dwg my setup tries to carry out 'Explode command' but after a number of minutes the programme shows "prog not responding" and I need to use Windows Task Manager to close Turbocad.

Can any one help me to allow me to work on the file.

Problems / Re: Missing rotator handles
« Last post by Andy H on May 22, 2018, 05:35:04 AM »
Can I ask, Which rotation bars.  There are different ones depending on ones set-up.

2D (just one handle). this is controlled by the 2D section of the selector properties dialog box.

3D classic (3 handles with a circle on the end of each axes for rotation).  shows when in GDI mode (options menu - native draw) Or RedSDK mode and  'use conceptual' is not ticked on the 3D selector page, this is  controlled by 3D selector properties Classic page of the dialog.

RedSDK mode only - 3D conceptual, (with various arrows pointing on each axes). When 'Use Conceptual' is ticked in 3D properties, this is controlled on the conceptual page of the properties, the profile page changes how the selector looks and works (the default is 'normal').

With RedSDK Conceptual, usually when this goes missing, and all the settings are correct, closing down TC and restarting brings it back.

With Classic, I haven't had that go missing, but if all else fails, you could try reload the configuration - tools menu - workspace - customise (or options menu - toolbars and menus - options tab), if you previously saved a configuration, find it in the drop down box under the load from button then click 'load from',  if not previously saved, click the default button. NOTE this will reset many things to 'factory default'.

Worse case scenario - delete the built in folder instructions on this page.  but it should not come to this.

Can't reproduce this issue attached is the video that shows applying "Draft,Quality or Advanced Rendering" didn't affect the TC response and you can easily revert them to "Wireframe or hidden" after applying any of the above render modes.
