General Discussion / What is really going on with DesignCad?
« Last post by Guynmt on December 13, 2017, 07:13:29 AM »
I upgraded to Version 2018 from 2016 a while back and it hasn't been the best conversion for me. First the bounding box would disappear after using copy and paste. I understand there can be problems releasing new software, but then I started noticing little things after that. First after downloading the new version from their website, i saw that it said I was using 32 bit instead of 64 bit. Then when I received my backup disk, I did a reinstall after completely removing the previous one. Still again 32 bit. Now every time I turn my computer on I get a new Hardware Config. file on my desktop. Very annoying.
IMSI sent me a link to fix something (they didn't say what it was to fix). I installed it and it looked like a completely different version from 2018 even though it said 2018.2. And in Dimension Options the box for "Scale prop." is gone. I don't know what it going on, but the logo looked familiar, so I opened the about page and found the release date is 2008!!!

Are you using ver. 24?
I'm using the v2018.


I can't remember ever having the result of a slice being the surfaces at the cutting plane itself. I did superimpose your file 2 onto file 1 so I know what Bob is talking about (I was wondering if you used the Cross Section or Contour Line command by mistake).

I recreated the solid by tracing over the profile and extruding. Now the slice seems to work.

Does reversing points on either the plane or the solid make any difference?

I'm having the same problem in V25 and V26. I end up with a plane that's the intersection of the cutting plane and the solid.

Slice works there in the old-faithful V15.  8)

I sliced your solid with no issues.

Thanks Rob,
Yes - resizing handles works OK, I hadn't thought to use them.
No access to the beta forum I'm afraid. :(

Yup, yet another bust for V2018, fortunately not to hard to work around.

Same issue was discovered relating to resizing and reshaping text entities.

If you have access to the beta forum it was here

http://forum.designcadcommunity.com/index.php?topic=6986.msg50110#msg50110

The workaround was to use resizing handles, (the red squares) which seems to work for embedded images as well, maybe unless you need to move corners to exact points.
