General discussion about BabaCAD / Re: Mac version vs Windows version?

Everything related to BabaCAD (wishes also) can be asked here on this forum.

Length and Area are calculated automatically for polyline entities, just select polyline and look at the "Properties" window.

Windows and Mac versions almost have no functional differences. There are just a few more functions in Mac version, like Array and Mirror (Modify menu), Ellipse (Draw), better render quality, export to pdf. In Mac version, Lisp is built-in, and in Windows version, Lisp has to be download as Extension Module (AddOn).

Next version of BabaCAD for Windows (release 1.3.6) are comming soon, with:

- Linetypes (- - -, -.-.-, -- -- --, ...) that can be customized (linetypes file in /support/bcad.lin)

- Array and Mirror modify functions that are already in Mac version.

- New entites and drawing commands: ellipse, spline (3D), 3D polyline (3DPOLY).

- New version will be 3D enabled (this is not yet 3D solid modeling version, which is on the way, but more about this later).

- LINE, POINT and 3D POLYLINE objects will have Z coordinate (modifiable in Properties window or moving and snaped to other 3D objects in workspace). Length property calculated for 3D lines and 3D polylines.

- There will be more cool things like "Dynamic Input", grid on/off, smooth render as LW on/off, raster image now saves to dxf when inserted in drawing.

- 3DORBIT command (also SHIFT+scrollwheel+mouse to explore 3D)
- 2D/3D VIEWS: top, front, left,right, isometric.
- Polyline join (PLINEJOIN) for all line based objects (line,polyline,3D polyline).
- New Tools: convert 2D to 3D polyline.

Hope everyone will enjoy a new enhanced BabaCAD 1.3.6

BabaCAD for Mac will soon be available again in Apple AppStore, as it has to pass some tests for macOS Sierra.

Kind regards

I will put language packs soon, because executable starting too slow if all-languages  fonts are included. I will try to put Chinese patch first on the list.

I checked again, but it's not 1.3.5. beta bug. It is bug since 1.3 (earlier versions are good). I will fix this in next release. When saved from BabaCAD, and when you open dxf again in BabaCAD, layout is ok. Problem is with dwg and dxf saved in AutoCAD.

Sorry, I forgot to tell you that you have to choose "Page setup" by right clicking on "Layout1" tab (or any Layout tab) at the bottom. Page setup from file menu is not working (will check why).

There is layout reading bug in 1.3.5 beta version which is not fully tested. Download stable 1.3.4 version from main page.

Ellipse is programmed since mac version and I will add it to windows version too. I have doubt about Construction lines cause tracking feature is some type of replacement for old time AutoCAD XLine entities. Ortho mode is similar.

Yes, it is useful, and I will try to add that feature in next release.

It is bug, it will be fixed in next release. Thanks.

It is bug. I noticed this but forgot to add it to bug fixes list. Thanks.

Check again. When paper layout is changed then paper is changed also, but you have to modify viewport to fit to new  paper size.

I can't promise, but I was thinking of adding Ribbon instead of classic 16x16 button toolbars. I just have to draw new ribbon buttons. Good thing is that I bought Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 for development (switched from 2005 version in 2012), and I later found that Ribbon is included in Visual Studio 2010.

There is no cmd line parameters option, but I plan to add support for script commands (.scr).

You're almost right. Commands atof, rtos and read are not on the list, but there are few functions added in the last release of list module (2016):

~ (bitwise not operator)

Also you can call ssget "X" with filter. For example you can select just ARC entities in drawing:
(SETQ ss (SSGET "X" (list '(0 . "ARC")))

There is good example which have new functions, and that was my anwser to one croatian user, so it is on bosnian version of this forum (just scroll down to copy lisp function bcount). It's about counting all blocks in drawing
