Problems / Re: How do I change the Workplane in Mac Designer 8?
« Last post by mitchb on December 10, 2017, 09:57:34 PM »
I really need the drawing so I can select the dimensions and see the attributes and how they relate to the rest of the drawing. A picture is a good start but the drawing would be more informative.

I can now see that it is not a bottom MTS view because the left to right orientation of the dimension is not a reverse image, I can only re-create the backward and upside down dimension by rotating it. I don't think you are doing that and If it's a program bug, then there would be several complaints about it here.

There is only one workplane in 2D and that is the page that you are drawing in, all you have is the X and Y axis.

Problems / Re: BOM not working
« Last post by Scott on December 10, 2017, 07:17:30 PM »
Hi
I am using TurboCad Mac Deluxe v10.0.1 build 1340. 

I don't think the solids are locked, can't find anything to say that they are.  And I can't find anywhere to change the selection mask not to select solids.  Even if only one solid is selected by clicking on it, the name can't be changed and the BOM won't work.

the attached drawing is the first drawing made using the Mac version.

thanks for your help
Scott

Thanks Mitch

Sorry I don't know if I'm working in a 'Model to Sheet' view and don't know how to tell.

Here is a drawing showing the effect I'm seeing.

Many Thanks

Fess up time. the original drawing was in meters. i did do a metric drawing a while ago, and evidently forgot to change it back. :-[

This was a 100% TC model. I made single part 3D to 2D drawings with no problem. I normally work in inches.

Problems / Re: Authorisation code for V.5, or can Snow Leopard run V.7 64?

I think V7 will run on Snow Leopard, I stayed on Snow Leopard for a long time after Lion came out due to software issues with some other programs I was using at the time. Give it a try.

Are you working in a "Model To Sheet" view? A bottom view would do exactly as you described. Post a sample drawing for us to look at.

Problems / Re: Upgrading to Mac High Sierra

There is not much difference between .016 and .020. In my above screen-shots, I butted the two lines end to end and then zoomed in to see them, zoom out a little and there is no visible difference. Could you post a sample drawing? I get the feeling that we are talking about two different things, maybe a resolution setting?

Have a design in inches

Is this a TC drawing or imported from some other format? I take it you normally work in metric so your units preference is set to metric? Not all imported formats include unit info but if it does then your unit will be reset to the imported drawing units.

I can't duplicate that problem on my system. Can you post your drawing for me to look at? Are the solids locked, Selection Mask not set to select solids? What build are you using?

Enjoy
