General discussion about BabaCAD / example-files and tutorials on how to work in 3D
« Last post by StefanL38 on September 11, 2018, 05:18:27 pm »

I have experience with simple CAD-software like QCAD, AutoCAD, MegaCAD (20 years ago) and SketchUp. So I'm familiar with the concepts but not with the "how-to" in BabaCAD.

So my question is where can I find example-files and tutorials how to use BABACad for 3D-construktion. How does the equivalent to sketchup-"pull/push"
(extrusion) work in babaCAD. The userinterface is quite intuitive but I did not find any functions how to create 3D-shapes like "cube" etc.

best regards 

General discussion about BabaCAD / Re: Can't open dwg drawing
« Last post by babadmin on September 07, 2018, 08:46:11 pm »
You have almost full functional trial version free to download which is also time unlimited. You can open any dxf drawing and dwg drawings of version < R2007 and version > R12. To work with new dwg drawings (up to R2018) you have to buy commercial version. Trial version canít open latest dwg version drawings as that feature is limited by third party dwg library which is not free. If you donít trust but you have already tried BabaCAD, then you are the first of over 150,000 users with such complains. There is always option to buy 60 times higher priced AutoCAD.

Yes, thanks. Screenshots of projects made in BabaCAD are always welcome.

Thanks. I didn't have large screenshots of those images, so it's ok, I just put link to the home site. Users are welcome to send screenshots of some nice dxf projects that they designed with BabaCAD. To be honest, I'm not good in drafting, so I hope users will help me to collect and prepare some decent gallery of CAD drawings.

A longtime user of BabaCad but joined the forum just now. I know that the above post is more than a year old, but do you still need some dxfs?

yaa :D,,, btw its a good cad software,,, this review and results of phenq need more a bit upgrade for some tools,, to make it very best for 2d drafting :D

It is indeed a very good CAD software, in fact, I prefer it over AutoCAD for its simplicity. After the recent updates, BabaCAD can compete with almost all CAD softwares. This one is an indispensable tool for me.

thanks for this simple and easy software I prefer this software for my students also.
General discussion about BabaCAD / Re: Zoom issue

I found similar problem on friend's computer, and it was related to mouse scroll wheel sensitivity. It's very rare case, but I will try to solve this problem by adding configuration settings for wheel speed in the next app update. There will be System Variable MOUSEWHEELSPEED, so user can just set optimal mouse wheel speed for zooming (in 1-255 value range).

Thanks for reporting this issue.

I tried scrolling with the left mouse, does not work either. It remains stuck at the zoom it is at.

I'm sorry, but I cannot change PC-wide scrolling speed of my mouse, which will have implications on all my programs on my PC, just to adapt for 1 single application.
I hope you can see and understand this is not a practical solution for me.

The issue is also that the scroll gets stuck beyond a certain zoom. It works between different ranges, so the application in itself does scroll. Even if its fast, still it does scroll.
It does no longer scroll when I go below or above a certain zoom value.

Thanks Mike. I'm currently working to prepare translation table for few languages (including German). Then I have to do some work on extracting UI dialogs words/commands for translation. If I find problems with German translations I will contact you later after I finish this.

Best regards

Zoom has to be smooth, when using middle scroll wheel. In your case I think it is mouse related issue, and scroll wheel is to sensitive. Try to change scroll wheel settings (how much lines to scroll; try set to 1) in Windows->Settings->Devices->Mouse & Touchpad. You can also try BabaCAD command 'zoom/real time' and test zoom by holding left mouse button and moving the mouse up/down.
