General discussion about BabaCAD / Re: OS X QUESTION
« on: July 01, 2017, 02:27:36 pm »
Try to update graphics drivers and probably the best option is to update to latest OS X. Here is video that will prove that BabaCAD for Mac (same as BabaCAD for Windows) regularly open DXF files.

Also, check review of BabaCAD for Mac on

and screenshots of opening DXF files (made by softpedia's editors):

I just checked (entget(car(entsel))) and I found that you're right. It's bug and it has to be (10 x1 y1 z1)(11 x2 y2 z2). Also there is bug with filling z-coordinate (now it's always 0.0). Will fix this in Update 1 (it's not a new version, just update and it will be available soon).

Thank you very much for congratulations.

About COPY command: you're doing all well, you just have to do command PASTE or Ctrl-V to paste your objects from clipboard. I know this is maybe a bit different than copy command in AutoCAD. Maybe I will change command DUPLICATE and there you will be immediately be asked to specify paste location.

About Z-coordinate in COPY command: It's  a bug and I will fix it (in LISP also). BabaCAD 2017 Update 1 with a few bug fixes will be available on the end of this month.

There is no minimum requirements for graphics memory size, cause every graphic card in last 10 years supports OpenGL and has minimum 32 Mb of memory.

I saw BabaCAD (32-bit) runs w/o any problems on very old computers (maybe 10 years old and even older). So, if neither of two versions  do not work, it can only be discompatibility between Windows 10 and that old graphics card. I will see to add more checkings on startup in next BabaCAD update and give users more informations in case of startup failure.

Windows dump cannot help me a lot. I will try to find computer with intel integrated graphics card to test, as I'm sure 99% that's the problem.

There is something weird, and I cannot realize what it is. I have already tested BabaCAD 2017 on several computers running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and everything was fine. Maybe once more thing you can try, to go to properties of babacad.exe in explorer (Program Files/BabaCAD/BabaCAD) and select compatibility mode and try different options (vista, XP, ...), then restart BabaCAD 2017. It would be
pretty bad for you not to use a new BabaCAD 2017, as there are so many improvements and more better user interface in new version, but if not you must be satisfied with running old 32-bit version  :(

OpenGL version is ok, but you have to update drivers for you graphic card if there are vendor's bugs fixed in meantime. Also, can you tell me what's going in case when you install older BabaCAD version 1.3.4 (it's second download button on website; it's 32-bit but also runs on all Windows versions)?

Update graphics card drivers and restart BabaCAD. If same problem exists, check if you have two graphics card and switch from integrated card (often it's intel integrated low performance graphics) to hi-performance graphics card.

If you try to run BabaCAD on virtual machine like vmware, vbox,.. there can be problems as virtual machine graphics are not well supported with OpenGL.

BabaCAD for Mac 1.0 requires Mac OS 10.10 or higher. It's also tested on Sierra MacOS. Here is youtube video of my daughter using BabaCAD on Yosemite Mac OS X (10.10), MacBook Air (2014)

 Check you graphics card drivers and update it to latest version. In most cases problems are caused by graphic card drivers or running BabaCAD in virtual machine (virtual machine is not recommended to run CAD software).

General discussion about BabaCAD / Re: Mac version vs Windows version?
« on: April 27, 2017, 03:08:17 pm »
I prefer it on a mac and I have both.

I also prefer Mac OS, but BabaCAD 2017 (new version April 2th) for Windows is much better than BabaCAD for Mac OS (v1.0). If you have not downloaded yet, go download it, you will see what I talking about.

Thank you for your interest in BabaCAD. I must say that you are just second person who offer to donate for BabaCAD, and BIG thank to you for that, but I cannot accept it, cause I have not accepted from the first guy (also one american, that was 3 years ago) and it's obvious that donation from two guys can't help much in BabaCAD development. But, your review is maybe more valuable for me and for other users, so I must say thank you again.

Now, i will try to anwser to your questions:

1. commands defined with lisp DEFUN function and loaded by APPLOAD will run if typed in Dynamic Entry Box, but auto-complete can't find it cause it's populated at the start of  BabaCAD (i will see in next service pack update to solve this, so auto-complete to know about these commands too).

2. Will fix it,

   a) Z coordinate is displayed and editable in properties pane only for 3D objects like LINE, POINT, 3D POLYLINE, but not for circle, arc, 2d polyline...
   b) to see or get access to n-th vertex of polyline/3dpolyline, just select it and type vertex index (for example 5 for 5th vertex) in "Vertex" field in Properties pane
       or select polyline and once click on vertex which coordinates wants to be displayed in Properties pane (X,Y,Z coordinates) like as you want to move vertex (and
       cancel move by type "Esc" or just click on same snaped vertex coordinate). After that you can also edit coordinates of selected vertex.
   c) you can change Z coordinate of all vertices of 3d polyline object: first type -1 in Vertex field (top field in Geometry section of properties pane for 3d polyline
   object), then type value in Z field. All vertices will move to that Z coordinate.

4. Will fix it,

5. Polyline, 3D polyline and Spline edit are included, just with different command name (also look for icons at Ribbon bar at right). PLINEJOIN, PVERTEXADD,

6. Solution in 3. (I will check if bug exists for moving z-coordinate by typing in command line).

7. I don't understand this. SAVE and SAVEAS exists, just click on BabaCAD icon on top-left (there is also New, Open, Print....)

8. I can put distance command later, but you have properties pane LENGTH, then DIMALIGNED, then you stand on grip point and length of line/polyline segment will
    be displayed also

9. Ortho is depricated cause you have object tracking feature (OTRACK) which is more usable and it's replacement for ortho, so just follow tracking lines...

10. no FILEDIA

11. there is LIST command, maybe it's not included in auto-complete (type LIST in command line)

12. UNITS are welcome, will be there soon (I hope)

13. I put some options in menu (ribbon) bar, but if you like to change options in dialog, ok, will add it

14. Thank you for sharing this LISPS with other users. I also think that many automation tasks can be made using lisp, I just don't have a time for scripting.
      Forgot to tell that these commands or any other .lsp script can be loaded automatically at startup if you edit bcad.mnu file in \Program
      Files\BabaCAD\BabaCAD\Support folder.

I see you didn't understand me. There is no new release, I fixed it already (faster than a roadrunner). I withdraw Sunday setup with this new one. Just download again and re-install BabaCAD 2017. Otrack now works for LINE command too (that is what you looking for).

I know it sounds weird, but this BabaCAD software is not only dynamic by itself, but it's author is too. For comparison, try imagine this situation with Autodesk for example. You find some small bug (or a way to improve drafting) and e-mail to Autodesk (or some other big company producing CAD software). You may get answer for a week or two, but then you ask them to fix that. Ha ha, they would only laugh. You can expect that fix for about few years, and here you got your wish in about 45 min.

Nice suggestion. Thank you. I must admit that thing always pissed me off. I fixed it and now you can tell that BabaCAD 2017 had to move release date from April 2th to April 3th, as now it's 1.00 AM in Sarajevo :) (I will put a new setup file for about 30 min).

Have a good drafting

Everyone who downloaded BabaCAD 2017 at Sunday must re-download and re-install it on Monday (first remove version that is already installed).

General discussion about BabaCAD / Re: How to enable trace log?
« on: February 23, 2017, 11:46:35 pm »
It's plugin log, independent from BabaCAD. Maybe I haven't enabled it in that plugin version. I will add option in .ini file to enable error log in next plugin release.
