Hi All!
Now, using a small patch (http://bugs.freepascal.org/file_download.php?file_id=18484&type=bug) ZCAD can run under Linux using qt, not just gnome

Hi All!
I compared a speed of displaying drawings in ZCAD vs LibreCAD. ZCAD much faster. Working with large drawings much more convenient.
But, unfortunately, a set of tools for working in ZCAD yet very small.

Dear zamtmn your project is very good. I believe you will add a lot of tool in the future.
I am Cam program developer  and   believe me your project is very well

ahmetnurideniz, thank you for your appreciation. Your CAM program develop in Lazarus or Delphi?

Hi All!
Added support for splines. As long it's just loading\saving from DXF and simple editing with the control points.

Is there any chance i could request a .zip file version for linux_x86? Tinycore 7zip support has bugs.
I would love to try it out.

Thanks
Bill

Unfortunately I was not able to cross compilation, only the old version - http://sourceforge.net/projects/zcad/files/Linux%20x86/zcad_v0.9_svn543.zip/download

Hi All!
After many failures I was able to do dxf line type for curved entities

Hi All!
The turn to make the dimensional primitives. Again there is a choice to make their simplified like Libre/Q CAD or complete as in AutoCAD with all possible settings. But simple is not our way 8-)

Hello Zamtmn.

Congrats for your extremely great job.  ;)

Have you plan to read (and write) .stl, .obj, .thing 3D files ?

This kind of 3d files can be read by the "cheap" 3D printer Makerbot Replicator.

Here link of that very impressing product :

Thanks.

Hello Fred vS!
I have a lot of plans, but I understand that they are not given to all true.
The current speed of development shows that even simple things are done slowly.
I'm looking а ACIS format for 3D, but such things do not write alone not professional.
On the other side is not sophisticated 3D formats (not solid) can be fairly easy to add right now, but I do not have plan on this at the moment

Yep, so, good news, it could be possible.

PS : By the way, do you know that "grand public" stereo-lithograph Makerbot Replicator machine ? That opens a huge of possibilities for prototype-makers like me...
