Thanks for trying Mitch. I have emailed them. If they fix it i'll let you know what the issue was.

I don't have the hardware to test this so you might want to open a trouble ticket. Hopefully, the programmers can figure this out.

Hi Mitch
ok well hmmmmm indeed.  No external monitor and I'm using quite a high spec 27inch iMac late 2015. 32gb ram 4ghz Intel i7, Sierra 10.12.5 with upgraded graphics card AMD Radeon R9 M395x 4096mb and 1TB ssd
If I cannot get to the bottom of this then perhaps I can do everything in V10 and then the final render from V9.
Thanks for your input to date

I didn't know that .jpg was part of the TC package, so many to look at. In any case, I'm not having a problem with it. I find it interesting that the lines extend beyond the image and continue across the entire drawing space. Is this on an external monitor? I have tried this on my MacBook Pro 2016 and my older MBP late 2008, both work. What OS are you using? I have used both El Capitan and MacOS Sierra.

Hi Mitch
I am using the stained glass image from the textures folder. But any jpg appears to have the same issue. The black lines vary slightly depending on the pixel value chosen when you save to file. So I have attached 2 x 'Render to file' images using V9 and V10. Both are a decal 20x20cm on a covered surface. I notice the values are slightly different on V9 as it saves as 2560x1315 but on V10 its 2560x1240 (not sure if that means anything). Please see attached

I have not been able to duplicate this issue using any .jpg files I have. Could you post your "stained glass" image for me to try? It's strange that V9 works but V10 fails.

Problems / Re: Offset line
« Last post by mitchb on July 15, 2017, 03:15:07 PM »
If you are using "Offset To Value", then the amount of offset is set in the "Offset" box in the data window and will always be the same amount until the value is changed. You might also note that the offset line is no longer a construction line and it will not be in the construction layer unless that layer has been set as the working layer.

The best way to create construction lines is to right click on the point where you want the line and at the bottom of the popup menu select "Construction Lines" -> Horizontal, Vertical, or 45. The fourth item "Delete Constructions" will delete all construction lines. After the construction line is created select it and verify in the data window that it is correct, or adjust it as needed.

Enjoy

I just remembered that there is a construction line offset tool. The last icon in the Line toolbar has a submenu for the offset tool.

Hi Mitch
Thanks for the info. I loaded build 1340 thinking that may be the cure. Whatever I do the black lines are still there. I attach 2 x jpegs using the 'stained glass' decal/image saved on a covered square surface from the textures folder. One using V9 and the other using V10. Identical settings used to save as a file. The V10 has the black lines. :(

Problems / Offset line
« Last post by Frogman007 on July 14, 2017, 06:55:52 AM »
I'm using TurboCad Pro v8.08 on my MacBook Pro and I'm having problems with TurboCad doing exactly as I instruct!!!  I have offset lines to create parallel lines before but now I'm attempting to offset a construction line by exactly 1' and each time it ends up at 1' 1 5/8".  Help anyone!

The current build for V10 is 1340 found here:

http://tcmacforum.imsisupport.com/index.php?topic=2660.0

Build 1321 has some issues, I can't remember what, too many to keep track of.

The only issue that I am aware of causing lines in rendering are two surfaces on top of each other. Say you have a wall surface that is rendered blue but you don't want the entire wall that color. You place a cover surface on the wall and set that to green. When you render it you will get green and blue stripes. The problem here is the program is having a problem determining which surface is on top, sometimes the wall is and sometimes the cover surface is, the fix here is to move the cover surface away from the wall just a hair.

Enjoy
