Techdraw Review (@ 0.17) and my template

Postby dymaxionkim » Fri Nov 16, 2018 2:07 pm

I figured out what Techdraw needed to reach the Profesional level.

1. Drawing Template
Creating a template is very easy.
Working with Inkscape was no problem.

The completed svg file was completed by inserting some syntax into the Text Editor.

It would be convenient to have the Text Editor work in the GUI.

2. Import View
Drawing one part and one drawing is not a big problem.
However, when you create two or more parts and drawings, you experience performance degradation.
In order to avoid performance degradation, it is better to place one part and one drawing in one file.

3. Dimension
Dimensional notation is still incomplete.

Point to point Dimensional notation is possible, but Line to line dimensional notation is impossible.
In many cases, Arc can not be recognized, and Raius / Diameter can not be used in many cases.

4. Point
If the size of the point is too large and too dense, it is not possible to select the line behind.
For the same reason, it is difficult to make delicate drawings.

5. Export DXF

The dxf exporting function is considered essential.
It is difficult to mark the svg file with additional dimensions.

* My opinion
It is possible to draw a simple figure, but it is difficult to draw a complete figure yet.
But the prospects are very good. I am especially pleased to be able to create beautiful drawings.

* My Template file : ... eneral.svg
