Thank you. I will contact you when I finish French translation, so you can just check if I did everything right.

I have been thinking of doing German, French and few more translations, but I can't say when it will be. I have to check if I can use google translate, cause I don't have anyone to translate command names.

Thanks for the comments.

Regarding JOIN command, I think you misunderstood how it works. You cannot join polyline with other lines/polylines by connecting them in non-ending points or even worse in no vertex points. I think that JOIN command works in same way in other professional CAD software like AutoCAD. So, you have to have polylines and lines connected in sequential order, so they all visually forms one poyline object. One of the objects must be polyline and it must not be first in the order (it can be im the middle for example), and first selected object must be polyline.

Grid is also visible in case of white background (I saw that on your screenshot for terminology question, .png image) but I must admit that intensity of grid lines are lower compared with case of black background. I will increase visibility of grid lines for black background or maybe I will put system variable where user can change contrast value.

General discussion about BabaCAD / Re: Terminology for Documentation

Yes, it's all good. Mirza is my first name. About the terminology: "Command Line" refers to the command line window, which is located on the bottom. But when DYN (Dynamic input) is enabled on the status bar, then all user's inputs are directed to the "Dynamic input box" which is marked as 3 on the image that you provided. I prefer to call 1 and 2 just as "Length/Angle" edit boxes. Of course, if user clicks somewhere inside the Command Window and starts typing, then "Dynamic input" will not be active, and everything typed will be displayed in the command window.

I forgot to say that I fixed problem about attaching images to forum posts!

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.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for giving a detailed explanation of such behavior, which I've already found, and it will be fixed for Update 1 of BabaCAD 2017. Current version of JOIN command works only for straight (linear) segments of lines and polylines. Arcs and bulged polylines will work for JOIN command in the next app update.

One important notice for you: I saw on your video that you are trying to join segments that are not close one to another. That's why you don't get joined polyline. Everything else that you are doing are correct. First you have to select polyline and then other segmenst to join, but those segments must be close (with some minimum tolerance of maybe 0.1 units).

Kind regards,

General discussion about BabaCAD / Re: Feature Requests

Yes, feature requests from members are welcome. Update 1 for BabaCAD 2017 will be released soon (I'll try to finish everything planned this month) and very possible with CIRCLE command with more constructing options (three tangents...).

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.

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  :(
