Wish List

Post Posted: 05.10.2004 15:35

To All:
I'd like to start a "Wish List".
This could be a list where users can input ideas they have to make a Module better or more useful. And hopefully the company can see if some of these "wishes" can be incorporated into new versions of the program.

My first wish would be to create a "save as" line for user defined tenon settings. Similar to the "save as" line in 2-1-1 constant section, in D-CAM.

This would be very helpful to me.

What do you other users think?

What is on your wish list?

Hello all,

Like Jim said, the option to save and recall tennon settings.

Also in tennon settings the option of setting the depth of a drilling and the orientation of the drilling (much like you orientate the tennon when using `choice`) - most of our holes are blind, so once we get it to the K2 I have to alter the depth and very often the reference side.

Also the ability to zoom/pan during a command, on larger jobs you'll often have to zoom in fairly close to pick, say the reference point, and then find that the destination point isnt quite visible forcing you to break out of the command, zoom/pan to a better view and start the command up again - can get a bit frustrating at times Confused

Thats about it for now, sure I can think of summat else if I put my mind to it Wink

Cheers,

Lee.

@Jim Rogers and Lee Hale
The 'save as' function will be added in the most dialogboxes time by time.


@Lee Hale
You can use the zoom during a command by typing the + oder - key on your keyboard. An other posibility is using the middle key of your mouse. In this temporary menu you can use the zoom too and in DICAM you will also find a function to rotate your construction.

I wasn't aware of that rotate function threw the middle mouse button. That is great and I can see where it will be very helpful.
Thanks a lot for that tip.
I was aware of the zoom in and out with the + and - keys. I use that all the time.

Yup, that does make things easier.

Another quick one while I'm here - the ability to copy text from information boxes, such as when you use the Measure feature; it would be handy for pasting the info into other parts of the program (Move, Copy etc...).

Cheers,

Lee.

Re: Wish List

I have been using Dietrich’s for four years now and seeing a thread started about a wish list was just too big a temptation to overcome. I posted some of this list on the old forum and Markus knows about a lot of these but it would be interesting to hear what others feel about them and to hear what other people would like to see. I should qualify this list by saying that by and large Dietrich’s is a fantastic piece of Software and like so often happens I have probably begun to take its capabilities for granted over the years.

Multi select in individual categories in filters – i.e. to be able to activate both lintels and sills without having to open the filters twice.

Separate cut in Wall Design and Ceiling design – this must be coming soon as the heading for the command is on the drop down menu

Return to previous isometric view in DiCAM after viewing in plan or elevation and/or remember predefined and save isometric views

More flexible and improved Timber Frame Wizard

•especially more than one type of internal and external wall definition per house type.

•be able to design T and L shaped openings in the TFW – i.e. a one or two windows tight next to a door

•be able to give accurate object information to elements created by the TFW – i.e. currently all horizontal timbers that aren’t plates are sills

Walls and roof areas listed in numerical order in the Building MOS

A stretch command in D-CAD

Object information in Wall and Ceiling Design – I believe this is coming soon!!

The ability to change from a gable wall to an eaves wall on the same building side in Roof Calculation – a very frequent occurrence in the UK and not properly addressed in Dietrich’s – you need a new outline and it has to be treated like a dormer.

Roof surface panels to be able to be cut back right to the eaves in front of dormers – again a very frequent occurrence in the UK

Be able to hide storeys, construction elements etc. when positioning dormers

List previously created machine storages when making a new one

The current MOS dropdown list in DiCAM should be more than 4 lines…….

….. or even better, after selecting an object in MOS info, there should be a check box in the dialog box to select if you want that MOS to become the current one

To be able to have OpenGL and the DiCAM model open at the same time and be able to jump from one to the other.

When saving pictures or areas in OpenGL it would be useful to have a list of previously saved images appear before assigning a name to your storage.

To be able to zoom with the wheel mouse in DiCAM.

Sort out and improve the collision test as outlined in an earlier post.

Sorry about the length of the post but I hope at the very least it starts some useful debate.

Thanks

Rob Cullen

Re: Wish List

Post Posted: 18.11.2004 19:38

Hello,
I work primarily with owner-builders and beginning timber framers and thus make full use of single beam shop drawings. Unfortunately, the greatest number of views generated is three (two sides views and an end view). For any but the simplest timbers, I end up bringing in the other side views individually from D-CAM.

So, my WISH LIST addition is:
Have six views of a timber generated with the Single Beam drawing function.

Wil mentioned this was being worked on last winter. Any hope of having it in the next update?

Also, the views currently generated are arranged as though the timber is "rolled" from one view to the next. This also occurs with end views where, for example, the end view of a post (shown at the top of the post) is the view from the bottom. This is the counter-intuitive to me. I am used to the right side of one view becoming the next view to the right. I would hope this could be changed, or at least have the option to choose how the views are arranged.

Hello Peter Henrikson,

I am sorry, but your wishes won't be come in the next update. And I think most of them will never come because they are totaly unusual (I hope my english is good enough). Our views are the normal views on technichal drawings. I never heard about drawings with 6 views.
You normaly have a view from one side of the object in the middle of your drawing. At the right side you have a view looking from the left side of the object to the object. At the bottom of the drawing you have a view looking from the upper side of the object down on it. That's what we are making.

Hello Peter Henrikson,

I had a telefon call with Wil Dancey today and he told me that your wishes are standard in USA. I didn't know that and so I couldn't understand the reasons for your wishes. Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed
Your idea with the views seem very strange to me because in europe nobody is working lake that. A german carpenter would ask us if we are drunken to give him plans with this views.

But now I understand your problem. I told Wil to give me some plans with our type of views and the same beams with the amrican type of views. I will see what we can do next year. This year I cannot do nothing because we are working hard to get a final version of our Update. But next year (it's no so far away) I think we can get a solution.

Hello all my name is Greg Francis and I've been using Deitrich's for about
10 month's now, so I'm still learning new thing every day. So I'd like to join in on this discussion of a wish list.

One thing that comes to mind is why can't you produce a material list on your 2D or 3D drawing. I know in the wall wizard module you can do this, but not in D-CAM or any of the other modules. When I do shop drawings I usually like to create a couple of elevations and plans views of the whole timber frame and it just makes sense to me to have a material list right on the drawing, instead of on a separate sheet of paper. I usually bring my drawings into AutoCAD to do my final shop drawings and this function would be great to have. Does anyone else agree ?

I'll have more comments later

Cheers

Greg

Hi Greg,

You can get your list on the plans now. Just use a text with columns. You can define them in the properties of the text. Copy the text of your material list into the clipboard. Now you open the dialogbox for a new text and there you can paste the text of your list.
In your case I would define a template for my plans. In this template you define a special text property for your lists. So you just have to define the property with the columns one time.

Hello again,

I have another problem to add to the wish list to be fixed. I noticed one thing with the DXF function. When you import a drawing from AutoCAD you are asked for a scale factor in which to bring the drawing in at. Then when you try to DXF export out to AutoCAD it does not allow you to provide any scale factor. Could you please fix this function, because if your not working in metric the drawing will not be the correct scale when exported out.

Thanks

Greg

Hello Greg,

this is not a problem which has to be fixed. We export the DXF-file with the scale you have used in our program.
I think the function you need is another export which we have not made until now. It's the export in scale 1:1. But in this case we have to export each window for it's own. We cannot export a complete drawing because a drawing can have more then one window with different scales.

Hi all,

I'm doing drawings for someone who wants all of their elements labeled by name on their drawings. For example "8x10 Post (2D)" or "8x10 Tie (2/C-D)". So, it would be great for me if there were a "User Label" that could be associated with an element and would be a selectable option along with Sorting Number and Timber List Number during the Save Current View and Single Beam Drawing operations.

Thanks in advance for your consideration,
Steve.
