General discussion about BabaCAD / Re: searching for crosshairs and rulers
« Last post by babadmin on July 01, 2017, 02:39:18 pm »
You don't need rulers or snap on grid as it's obsolete feature in professional CAD software. BabaCAD 2017 has advanced "Dynamic input" feature, so it's very easy to draw anything with measure. Just start to draw lines/polylines and enter length, distances and angles using dynamic input which is turned on by default. There are also object tracking (tracking lines for horizontal/vertical, orthogonal and extensions on lines that you draw). BabaCAD has object snap on nearest, orthogonal, intersections, extensions for advanced precision drafting.

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):

Hi all, i am new in BabaCad, just downloaded and installed and trying to draw something.

I am using Windows 10 X64.
i am trying to draw a bathroom layout in 2D with measuring in it.
Does anyone know if it is possible to use crosshairs and rulers ?
and can i use a grid with snap on functions ?

thanks for the info in advance !
General discussion about BabaCAD / OS X QUESTION
« Last post by bradb on June 30, 2017, 05:01:19 pm »
Just downloaded the OS X build (ver 1.0  1215.2) from the Apple Store after reading the reviews and after playing around with it for a few minutes saved a simple drawing.  Went to open it again and got an error message saying that 'BabaCAD cannot open files in the 'DXF/DWG document' format.   

I thought this was extremely strange since that is the format it saved the file in (?!) and that is what the software is described as it does.  I went and grabbed one of my other files from another program I have that is a DXF and sure enough it will not open any DXF file - from the open menu any DXF file is greyed out and even in the history view all DXF files will not open that have been saved.

Can someone clue me in as to what is going on here or what I need to do to remedy this?  I have already tried rebooting to see if it is something as simple as that but the software is still not working with either DXF or DWG files.

Am running it on a Mac Pro (2013) with OS X 10.11

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 for the quick response.
Yesterday forgot to comment that codes 10 and 11, usually associated with the beginning and end of a line, appear as 10 and 10, is it on purpose ?. In the DXF file, codes 10,20 and 30 and 11, 21 and 31 for x, y and z appear at the start and end of the line. If that's the case, I would only change the way I access those codes through lisp programs.
I can not wait for the next version.
Keep going.

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.

First of all, I want to congratulate you for the time and effort put into Babacad software development.
Testing some commands, I realized that (at least in my case), the copy command only reaches the part where it asks for the source point to copy and stops; in the case of the array and mirror commands, those come to the end, but do not regenerate the "Z" coordinate.
Trying to program my own "Copy" code, I have access to entities with (entget (cdr (entsel))) and I realized that I do not get that coordinate with code even the properties bar shows that if there are (coordinates " Z ").
I wonder if this is the reason why the commands are not executed correctly.

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.
Thanks R2G.

Also, is there a minimum graphics memory requirement for BabaCAD?
