Problems / Re: Export to Sketchup issue
« Last post by mitchb on October 15, 2017, 04:27:18 PM »
I gave Sketchup 2017 a try also. I exported a solid to it and thought the screen was empty at first but it turned out that it was just too small to see. I had to zoom in. The second drawing I tried was a house framing view, that came in at a good size but it said that I had a lot of errors of zero length entities that it would fix for me. Okay, when the drawing displayed about half the drawing was missing. I soon realized that everything missing was in groups, so grouped objects are not supported.

Check your drawing for size or groups to see if any of those are the issue.

Enjoy

I'm not a sketchup user either. I updated my sketchup to 2017 and while the TCP did create a menu item of a sketchup file the file is empty as far as I can tell.

I exported the drawing as a dwg/dxf and sketchup imported that fine... But that kind of import changes all of my solids to mesh. Another downside of exporting is that my layer file structure gets jacked up since I create certain layers for certain assemblies and then use sub-layers within each assembly for individual parts. AutoCAD doesn't support that either...

I would like to try the R13 export. Sketchup looks like it will now support solids so if I can import the drawing as solids it would be preferable.

The drawing is for my vacuum platter turntable. I'm attaching a photo of the work in progress and a link to the drawing for giggles.

The Sketchup import/export is for Sketchup 2017. Not being a Sketchup user, I'm not sure if that means it will only support 2017. Was there a major change for 2017? If so then export using .dwg R13. Dwg/dxf formats above R13 use .sat conversion files for saving solids and surfaces that Sketchup will not be able to decipher.

Problems / Export to Sketchup issue

I'm trying to export a drawing to sketchup to send to a friend and not getting anything. I was not using the latest build, so I've updated to 1340.

The files being created by the export seem to be empty. Is there a bug here? or is there a trick I don't know?

Having the same problem with my iMac 27 inch retina display processor 3.5 GHz Intel core I5. Like you said I hope they have a fix ASAP. I wish I was able to afford AutoCAD. This program is totally out of my budget. I took five semesters of AutoCAD at a community college and I have never encountered as many problems as I am with TurboCAD.

Problems / Re: Gray lines instead of black
« Last post by mitchb on October 11, 2017, 10:03:25 PM »
Ten backups are the limit but that is for each drawing, why do you want 50? I use five and I'm considering going to just two. The file names are reused after the highest number is used, that is as in my case after 5 saves the next save reuses file #1 then #2 etc... Because of this I never can be sure which file is the last backup. After going to the backup folder I right click on the file icon and select "Quick Look" to see the time and date stamp. This would be quicker if I only had two files to check.

I found the problem for the first issue of dimmed or washed out looking line colors. I apparently had activated a button on the bottom left that enabled "display hidden lines as dimmed". I unchecked that an no more issue with line color, but what about the inability to safe more temp files in autosave?

Problems / Gray lines instead of black
« Last post by jawick on October 11, 2017, 04:24:19 PM »
Suddenly without warning, TurboCad Mac is printing gray lines or at least a watered down version of black. I noticed the other colors are washed out as well. What's happening?? Another issue I am having is inability to set the number of temp files in autosave. I set it to 50 then apply and ok, closing out the window, but when I come back it has reverted to 10 instead of 50.
Could use some help
Thanks
