Re: Not quite OT- New Printer

Back in 2010 I had a Canon 36" wide format printer. It used ink tanks… You could call the ink cartridges “tanks” as they are quite large - I compared the cost per ml for ink with the current small HP plotter when I made my purchase, and the HP ink was much more expensive. If there was some problem ...

Re: Not quite OT- New Printer

I long ago had it with my HP plotter, and Epson photo printer for that matter. I went for everything Canon and have been very satisfied. Hope to never go back. IPF670 and Pro9000II.

Re: WildTools Developments

speaking of Canadian standards, was there ever a request for the addition of Robertson (square drive) screw heads? How about Torx - has become super common in structural wood screws.

Re: New PowerCADD screenshot!

before people come at me for insider information – I don't have any. A while ago Todd asked for some sample files as he was working on the display on PC10. I sent him a project file, and helped compare screen shots looking for display anomalies since I knew my drawing so well. Thats all I know! Davi...

Re: object fill with a hole

You have to make an edge that runs from the outside of the donut to the inside hole. Now typically PowerCadd will close the shape if you click on the same point, so you have to offset one of the edges when you are placing the polygon points, and after the shape closes you can move the points on top ...

Re: Register Your Interest in a Forward Move

Lester, there is recent communication in other topics. This topic was started before the cooperation with AutoDesSys was formed and the programming effort was renewed.

The answer is there is no better drawing platform than PowerCadd - switch at your own peril.

Re: PowerCADD - SketchUp Interaction

Long time sketchup — PowerCadd user. I do not frequent any sketchup message boards since PushPull Bar closed. Never been to a base camp. Wouldn’t describe myself as a power user as there are many functions of sketchup I don’t use and I’m not familiar with. However I’ve used from the first Mac versio...

Re: Well Duh moments

What cracks me up is when I receive a floor plan for a brand new building and the overall dimensions are to some small fraction like 64’-0 3/64”, like that’s going to happen. When I got my first laser distance measurer I was miffed because it gave me measurements in 1/32s. At first I spent a lot of...
