Re: Negative values with ordinate dimensions

Re: Negative values with ordinate dimensions

Hi CVH Yep I get that thanks. Autocad dimensions the same.. Inventor drawings have negative values.. But noticed these are only used in hole tables where the 0,0 reference is in centre of the part and the holes are around the edge or diameter.. Otherwise Inventor does the same as qcad..

Re: Inside Hatches, more than meets the eye

Hi CVH Thanks for the explanation I understood some of it🤔 I think it might be a good idea to add a comment to users that hatch far away from the origin to edit the hatch properties to set the hatch origin back to X 0 Y 0 To reset the pattern...

Re: Inside Hatches, more than meets the eye

Hi CVH So are we so to speak "flogging a dead horse" ? We stick to basic patterns 0,45 & 90 degrees? for standard hatches Maybe the curved patterns can be addressed with a ..... here we go again...... DXFTILE?
