Problems / Dimensions are off when drawing walls in TC MAC 10
« Last post by dlsego on December 08, 2018, 11:44:15 AM »
I am new to TC Mac but have gone through the user's manual and tutorials that seem to be lacking in detail.  When drawing multiple walls using the data entry cell and explicitly specifying wall lengths, the wall dimensions display differently than what I specified.  Sometimes the shown dimension is like 4 inches shorter than what I specified for an interior multiple wall.  I can not figure out why this is happening or how to correct it.

The second problem I am having is achieving wall length resolution accuracy.  For example, when drawing a wall, even using the data entry cell or precision point, the dimension displayed is not exactly what I typed into the dy or dx cells.  For example, frequently if I specify a wall length of 17'-10 11/16" the dimension will display 17'-10 5/8".  It will not display the 11/16" fractional resolution or accuracy that I specify.  What is causing this and how do I correct this?

Howdy Gang! I've learned today that this is what happens when a Mac pulls in a non Binary stl file when it was a Windows construction! It's proof when we export for 3D Printing, to go "binary"

Howdy Gang!
I'm helping a fellow @ RC Groups sort out some structure, and PowerPack just blows away the competition! (SCAD)
I have never had any STL files 'reported' for not working thanks to Tim Olsen and his work @ PunchCAD/ EVO Software!
 I'm running on High Sierra, and when doing any heavy rendering, ignore your Mac, just turn on a video game, as V11 and High Sierra are doing just fine!

TCMAC v11 Bugs / Thank Yu so Much Bob and Todd!

Thanks guys!
 I realized, after my first 'reopening' I had forgotten my email addy, but then all is blue when I added that!
 I also did a "disk repair" before remounting, and High Sierra has a whole different layout with the key word being "very fast" compared to my old Maverick.
 I tried a pic upload, which didn't take due to securuties, so I'll try 2 other pics.
we are now only needing the serial number guys, no activation number, so a lot of new things with these new OS's!
more torments later!

Thanks Jonny and Mitch

I always copied a window screenshot, even for printing, as quicker and better results   (shift + Cmd + 4)


;))

As Johnny said, use Render to file to save as jpeg or other formats for best results.

Enjoy

sevesp!
Preview's "Take screenshot" I use ( full screen to grab in program stuff like location datas, inspector etc.)
or the window and 'grab selected' for the custom spots. Doesn't change your doing a gorgeous work here Sevesp!
Also, in the rendering listings: "Save to file": you will get the final rendered as requested ( could be larger than your screen!) as you set up the 'wants'. If it's a known " I gotta have it" location, so what if it takes minutes to render? I don't care of time, I got the desired pic! :D
