Re: Drill Postprocessor

BIESSE.prototype.writeLinearMoveZ = function() { .... }

Re: Laggy interface on macOS

And QT5 uses OpenGL. Apple has depreciated the use of OpenGL in favor of Metal and Macs are "stuck" at version 4.1 of OpenGL. QCAD does not use OpenGL (with the exception of the QCAD/CAM 3D simulation widget). We aim to support a wide range of platforms including Windows installations with broken o...

You can modify each layer individually or do it all in one go as follows: - Load the drawing - Edit > Application Preferences > Widgets > Property Editor : Check "Display properties of current block and current layer" - OK - View > Layer List to display the lay...

Re: Drill Postprocessor

I don't have enough context, but that could be the Z move to move up after drilling. To disable: MyPostProcessor.prototype.writeLinearMoveZ = function() { if (this.zStartPosition < this.zPosition) { // disable all Z up moves: return; } else { this.writeBlock("linearMoveZ"); } }; Be sure to properly ...
