General Discussion / Re: Remove duplicate lines?
« Last post by Torfinn on January 19, 2018, 03:47:16 AM »
I dont think there is a command for it, but if you select all the line's with the "green" selection window, press shift and click one more time and select the last one on the list and then hit delete you will be left with the one you selected when pressed shift.
The last one in the bottom of the list that pop up is normally the last one you made, if it turns out to be the wrong one, just crtl + z and they come back and you can select/ try another one.

General Discussion / Remove duplicate lines?
« Last post by Doolish on January 19, 2018, 03:32:17 AM »
I have gone to the TurboCad help screens and they infer that there is a 'remove duplicate lines' function under the Modify heading.
I am using Turbocad 21 and would very much like this option as duplicates cause havoc with Laser Cutting.
Anyone have any clue where this command is?
Many thanks

Tim, open the pic in a new browser tab by ctrl + left mouse button, or clicking the scroll wheel button on the thumbnail, BEFORE YOU LEFT-MOUSE-BUTTON CLICK.  Windows scales the picture to fit the screen in the new tab.  Much more satisfying than scroll-barring the pic at full resolution in the thread window.

Murray,

    many thanks, for the tip.

    I learnt something new today - much appreciated.
    It works, for me, when I just open a new http://www.opera.com browser tab.
    It would be easier if it wasn't necessary but, there you go.
    It's better to have contributions than not.

Regards Tim

The sculpting type software I tried it but couldn't get the hang of it . It seems more suited to an artist. I used pro engineer thousands of years ago and so sweeps and fillets seemed like the answer. It didn't seem so tricky back then to get stuff to work.

I am getting somewhere. The problem with TC is that nothing seems as easy as you think it should be, and so I end up compromising that the shape is near enough and not perfect.

Variable radius fillets is not working for me at the minute, it says I have to select 2 points and when I do it still tells me to select 2 points.

I have a question in terms of the light: What is a portal, how can I use it and what is the advantage? I found out, using your technique - Majo to set a 3D-Net outside of the windows and set the 3D preferences to "Daylightportal" and "For all luminances" that it filters some semolina and artefacts out and the rendering is clearer. Can you do more with it?

Info around portal, please see links:

Darrel - thank you that you have shown me the tone possibilities - I have not got that far. I try to experiment with it in my next renderings.

Hi,
I'm using 2016 Deluxe and whenever I use pick point hatch is seems to take ages for the hatch to draw - even on the simplest rectangle shape.
Any ideas how I could speed this up, or whats causing the slow speed?
Many thanks,
Steve

I don't know whether or not your version still has the old Pick Point [and?] Hatch tool/command.  That's been kind of junky for a few years, but has still been included along with the Pick Point Hatching tool/command.

I would suggest making sure that you are using the Pick Point Hatching  tool/command.  (others, that have version 2016, will have to verify which-- if not both-- of these tools/commands are in 2016.

The "show object while dragging" option works for me in 21 Pro Plat. 

The bounding box is visible while dragging in all cases, 2D or 3D, whether "show object while dragging" is on or off.  When "show object while dragging" is turned off, the bounding box side slides with the cursor to show the location.  The selected object is shown only when "show object while dragging" is turned on.

Maybe this is a problem peculiar to Deluxe.

As always, it is most helpful for Posts to include the specific TC product and operating system.

TC 21.2 Pro Plat 64b  Build 71.0 RedSDK
Intel i5 6500 3.2G 8GB Ram Win7 Pro 64b SP1

All your "circles" are "polylines". At some point they must have been Exploded. This is why the Radius/Diameter dimension tools don't recognize them. You could use the Triple Point Circle tool to draw over the polylines, then delete the polylines. Now they can be dimensioned.
