TCMAC v11 Bugs / High Sierra surface to surface intersect crash
« Last post by JBorlaug on March 17, 2019, 04:10:26 AM »
OK Gang! Because no matter how 'perfectly' I set up a wing ( elliptical again) I never get either stitching or a proper extruded airfoil ( 150 points/ lines per foil) to 'land' on Z Zero, so I figured I'd try to play surfaces. Once I got my surfaces collected the best I could, I tried a surface intersect with an infinite plane(s). CArash! here's the result. I can setup a small file, but it's going to take about 4 hours to return to my last save point!- Yes, things were going smoothly, and I purposely did not save before the intersects!
 More if needed!

Do the drawing area and toolbars appear? Could you post a screenshot of what does show?

Enjoy

Cannot make the full menu bar appear.  The basic menu appears with things like "file, edit, view..."  However, the part of the bar that usually is below these choices is missing. For example, it's where drawn line properties would normally show up.  I just cannot make it appear.

General Discussion / Re: TC v11 NEW! Threads (Precise & Cosmetic)

The thread tool is in the Power Pack Pro add-on package. Power Pack (not Pro) is available for V11 but the thread tool is not included. The Power Pack Pro add-on has never been available for TurboCAD Mac. E-mail TurboCAD to ask if the thread tool has been added to the Power Pack add-on package. If it has I would like to know. I have this tool in my ViaCAD V10 program that I purchased just to get the Pro version of Power Pack. As far as I know, ViaCAD V11 Power Pack add-on does not have the thread tool either.

TC V11 does not have a thread tool if that is what you are looking for. You can download 3D cad files from McMaster-Carr in sat format and import them into your drawing.

otherwise 'fit to page' overrides any attempt at scaling.

Fit to Page will fit the drawing to the available paper space without regard to any scale. If you want the drawing set to a scale then you must set the scale.

the simple line drawing tool acquired an enormous arrow.

You must have set it in the "Pen Properties" tool. See screenshot 1.

There seems too be no option with these to prevent the marker lines running to the edge of the workspace

I think you are referring to construction lines. Yes, they are infinite. They can be hidden by hiding the Construction layer or removed by right-clicking an empty space and use the construction line menu option to delete all.

When you first load your drawing if all the dimensions are way too large then select all (cmd-A) and select your custom standard to clean it all up.

Thanks Mitch. That worked really well.

It became clear when doing it that everything that goes outside the image you want a pdf of has to be eliminated, otherwise 'fit to page' overrides any attempt at scaling. So the grid went (not a problem) and so did centre marks. There seems too be no option with these to prevent the marker lines running to the edge of the workspace. Is there?

Somewhere along the way, the simple line drawing tool acquired an enormous arrow. I don't know how and, more seriously, can't find a way of getting rid of it. I wonder if you can help with this.

Thank you very much for all your help. I think I am rapidly converging on a satisfactory end result.

Regards Andrew

For printing or saving as a pdf you need to start with "Page Layout". From there click on "Page Setup" to set paper size and landscape, clicking on "Ok" brings you back to "Page Layout". Uncheck "Preserve Annotation Sizes" and check "Overlay drawing in preview". Click "Fit to Area" then "Align Center". You can use "Scale Ratio" to adjust drawing to the paper size if needed. Click on "Ok". Select "Print", if the preview is good then either print it or save as a pdf.

Enjoy
