General discussion about BabaCAD / Re: Cannot import file to another programme

I recommend that you download the latest version and try it. BabaCAD 2020 is 64-bit, it can import a newer dwg drawings and it's optimized to work very fast with complex drawings (open and modify/update drawings with millions of CAD entities). It's free to try and test it.

I had some problems when try to open some dwg drawing. If I update the software to a newer version, can I expect improvements in opening dwg files? I used the old 32-bit version, but later I switched to another software (draftsight). However, neither software worked well with large projects (it either crashes or is too slow).

There is a trial version (30 days) so you can try and see if the program is good for you. Also, there are many video tutorials on YouTube (just search for BabaCAD tutorial) so you will find that you can do everything with BabaCAD just like you can do with AutoCAD LT, even faster. Registered users can download patches/updates (mostly bug fixes) of the latest version when they are available (updates are not often if the latest release is stable). When the right moment comes, a new version (BabaCAD 2024 or 2025) will be released, with some new features and enhancements.

One more thing, maybe the crucial, for those who buy CAD software for the first time in their life: please search for the price of popular CAD software on the market, and you will find there is 3-year subscription of LT (light version of that popular CAD, which doesn't even include LISP scripting) that costs US$ 1,470 compared to BabaCAD Home life-time license which costs US$ 99. That's almost 15 times lower price for an almost identical product.
Everything that you are asking can be found on BabaCAD website, but it's no problem to give answers to your questions:

a. EULA is inside of the installation of the program, and also can be read after installing the trial version.
b. User can install the program on just one computer and use it unlimited time. To use on another computer at a same time, it needs a new license. If in meantime user decides to use the license on another computer,  it can ask for the license transfer (max. three times). There is possibility for company to buy the network license where the price depends on a number of concurrent users.
c. User's computer must not be connected to the internet to use BabaCAD. It can be used offline for the life. For the online registration it requires an internet connection (just once, to register the license), but the registration of the license can be done by e-mail too.

BabaCAD Home (2D) can't be upgraded to other products (Enterprise 3D, Robotics).

As a prospective purchaser, what should I intuit about the dates of BabaCAD's general purpose CAD programs? Does the fact that their dates are four of five years old mean that they are more refined and less bloated (software keeps getting worse and worse), or should I be concerned?

Thanks in advance.

I am interested in BabaCAD general-purpose CAD products, but I'd like to know more about their EULA/etc. before trying either. Perhaps someone can answer a few questions:

a. Where can I find a copy of the EULA for (both of) BabaCAD's products?

b. What are the rules, procedures, etc. for one individual user using a single BabaCAD product/license on more than one computer? Would I be free to use BabaCAD on as many computers I wish, so long as I was the only one using the computers and used them only one at a time, or would I need to "transfer" the license from one computer to another, or are BabaCAD products locked to only one computer, period?

c. Must one be connected to the Internet to use BabaCAD, either while BabaCAD is in use or once every so often to keep the license alive?

d. If there's anything else I should know, please tell me. ;-)

Thanks in advance!

Late Addition:
Is there an upgrade path from BabaCAD 2d/Home to BabaCAD 3D?

It's hard to tell you anything about that script ( because it's not the part of BabaCAD. I can help you only if you send me that python script and dxf file which generates the error.

It looks like there is a problem with the layer name of one of the entities (dxf group number 8). You can go through that problematic dxf file and check every line after the line which contains number 8. By default those lines contain 0 (Layer "0").

I can import simple files from the saved dxf to another programme (to turn it into a svg for laser cutting) but when it gets more complicated (I think when I've used the array function, I get this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 477, in <module>
    layer = layer_nodes[vals[groups['8']][0]]
KeyError: u'Sheet'

Then it won't load

Anyone know if this is a fault with the array function? I see arrayed elements don't undo on the undo function either!

Is there a setting option for the workspace color?
