General discussion about BabaCAD / Re: Mac version vs Windows version?
« Last post by AnthonySmith on June 24, 2019, 11:54:22 pm »
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

Even I had this thought in mind that they both have no difference Windows and Mac versions they have no functional differences. But just read the information . Thank you for Sharing. :D

Command "UNITS" (type in command line) to change between mm/feet/inch. Command exists in licensed versions (Home or Enterprise) only, not in trial version.

General discussion about BabaCAD / Re: How to draw hatch?
« Last post by babadmin on January 12, 2019, 05:35:27 pm »
Just hit enter at cmd line after you select the objects and then 'Choose pattern' window will show up (there you can choose pattern from list box or click on swatch button to open another dialog of pattern previews). If you know the name of hatch pattern, then you can type it to speed up hatch creation time (to avoid windows showing during hatch command).

Just type '3P' instead of '3' (this is fixed after trial version). Licensed versions are updated with more features and fixes.
General discussion about BabaCAD / three points circle
« Last post by sigmaCad on December 16, 2018, 05:21:06 pm »

I was using trial version for a while and there was circle command option to construct circle with three given points (i remember that I had just to type '3' in command line after circle command). I purchased home edition few months ago, but today when I tried to draw circle with three points, it just repeats "specify center point" after I type '3' in command line. Please help. I have licensed version of babacad home ed 3.0.5.
General discussion about BabaCAD / Re: Can't open dwg drawing
« Last post by babadmin on September 20, 2018, 09:18:42 am »
Mathematically '< R2007' means 'less than', but not 'less or equal'. So, I said as it is. Yoi can open dwg R13, R14, R2000, R2004, R2006 in trial version. BabaCAD  Home/Enterprise licensed users can open all dwg drawings up to R2018.
