Problems / Re: Two Tricky Questions!

DraftSight should not be any problem. What version of dwg are you using? My version of V6 only supports up to R24 (2010), not sure about V5, Look at export to see the highest version supported. Exporting out of V7 using a version not supported by V5 may be the source of your problem.

Problems / How do I change the Workplane in Mac Designer 8?
« Last post by AllanH on December 09, 2017, 10:03:54 AM »
Hi Folks - this is a follow on to my earlier question under 'Dimensions'

When using the parallel dimensions tool I'm struggling to get the text alignment correct - indeed the text is upside down ...and the horizontal and vertical dimension tools are acting as if they've switched around ...I can get a vertical measure with the horizontal tool and a horizontal measure with the vertical dimensions tool.

Having read a few things I wonder if I've inadvertently done something with the Workplane eventhough this is a 2d package - if this is the problem can anyone let me know how to sort this out.

Thanks for your help

Problems / 3D to 2D Drawing issue
« Last post by caflatlander on December 09, 2017, 08:46:03 AM »
Wow. Have a design in inches (old American, what can i say) that I wanted to create an assembly drawing of a design I am working on. This is the first time doing such a assembly conversion.  I am at 10.0.0 Build 1354 Deluxe version.  I pick all six solids to plop into 2D, say OK they render OK. But, all the dimensions are now in mm. I tried manually forcing the dimensions to inches, checked the general preferences. The dimensions had flipped to mm and so had the general preferences. I retried several times and yep, it repeats.
Any one else see this?

Hi Mitch
I have been selecting all items and clicking on Apply to Selected.  The only items included in the cut list are lines circles and points, no 3D objects. 

Also, the only way I can change the name of a 3d object is to change it when the 3D object is created.  I can change the name of lines, circles any time.
thanks

Problems / Authorisation code for V.5, or can Snow Leopard run V.7 64?
« Last post by Chris2017 on December 08, 2017, 10:12:59 AM »
Hi - does anyone have an authorisation code for V.5?

I have a project for which I want V.5 to run on an old iMac running Snow Leopard; I don't think V.7 64 (for which I do have the code) will run on Snow Leopard.  I have the disc for V.5 as purchased, but have lost the authorisation code. 

Can anyone help?  Many thanks if so,

Cheers,
Chris

Hi Mitch, have been away therefore no reply.  I have a fault somewhere on my computer, I try to open a dwg file in V.5 that was saved from V.7, I select it from the list, click it and after a bit the programme says the file is not found.  Working on that, I'll be back.  I have a trial copy of DraftSight on my machine to evaluate, I wonder if that's to blame?

Mitch,
Not sure how to interpret your last post. I still haven't had any luck going below a pen weight of 0.02", even though there is an option to go below that in the inspector. This is true regardless of whether I set preferences to any of the three "display as printed" "display view scaled" or "display weights off"

Problems / Re: Dimensions Text Upside Down - Workplace issue? Mac Designer 8
« Last post by AllanH on December 08, 2017, 02:25:58 AM »
Thanks Mitch

I wasn't actually selecting the horizontal tool and placing the dimension points vertically - I was placing them horizontal and similar for vertical but that said your suggestion to use the Parallel dimension tool is very helpful (don't know why I didn't realise this before). But, and sorry about this, I seem to have an issue when using this tool as well. It's great that it gives me the actual measurements but I can't aligned the measurement text sensibly, indeed the measurement text appears upside down - any thoughts on this?

I have been able to duplicate what you are showing, but I'm not sure what the point is. Selecting the horizontal tool and placing the two dimension points verticality at the same point on the X plane results in a dimension of 0 and vertical witness lines. Ditto for vertical dimensions.

Use the Parallel dimension tool to save some tool changing time.

Upgrade to V10 or go back to Sierra. Sorry that I don't have a better answer. You can download a trial version of V10 and try it out. Hope you like it.

Enjoy
