  1. Hi Group, I apologize for duplicated posts, I am having a tough time figuring out how to navigate to here, wow. Anyway, my question is when I generate a Board List of a cabinet, I used to get proper descriptions, such as sides, stretchers etc. in previous versions if iCad. Now in 21 I'm getting Custom Part in the description box. Is there a setting or way to have part names assigned properly? Also, I want to round up to 1mm. I'm getting measurements of 69.3mm etc. Where can I do this. Thank you. John
  2. Hello group. I normally use Board List from the Documents link to produce my material cultists. In my previous versions of iCad, the Board list would have a description of the part, say Side, Back, Stretcher etc. But in my 21 version, I'm getting Custom Part as the description. Any ideas as to what setting to use? Also, I would like to have my measurements rounded to 1mm. I'm getting measurements like 34.6mm. Thank you. John
  3. Hi, I'm trying to make doors rail and stile. The box to choose that is greyed out. How do i fix it. Thanks. Also, any updates to 2021?
  4. You are a star and a scholar my good man, thank you.
  5. Hi all, I have my line thickness set to 0.13 but when I zoom in to snap to corner etc. the line thickness becomes very big (black) I can't find where I can turn this off etc. Can anybody help with this, thank you. Sincerely, John
  6. Hi Stephan, Thank you for your reply earlier to my questions. Is this the place to post? I do see 'counter profile' as you suggested for the extra length on rails to accommodate the tenons. Where do you input the extra length? One suggestion if there is none, is when you click on rail, a rail icon appears with say a dashed line at both ends to show tenons, then you click on tenon and input a length. I also have a question on finished side panels on a cabinet. It seems you can only make this using custom parts. Once it is make and attached to cabinet, how do you make it show when you print out the board list? Thank you. John
  7. Hi Stephan & group, I am a long time user of icad. I so glad that you are hear to answer questions that may arise. I am anxiously waiting for 2021 and I'm sure we'll all have some favorite questions/comments. Thanks for being here...
  8. Hi all, I've been waiting to upgrade my mac os to Mojave until i was sure i could use 2018 and/or 2019. Is there any updates on this? TIA. John
  9. Hi Armari, I also have VW and Interiorcad. The only folder I have with all the files required is in Applications. I assume you directed icad to be put in Vectorworks Folder in Applications when you downloaded it? I think it's automatic though. So just copy folder Vectorworks 2017 and drag it into new applications folder on new computer. Voila!
  10. Hi there, anybody updated to OS Mojave and can review if there is any issues? Thanks. John
  11. I'm using a Dell 38" curved monitor, It's really big but not to big, love it. https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Screen-LED-Lit-Monitor-U3818DW/dp/B073FHWTPL?psc=1&SubscriptionId=AKIAILSHYYTFIVPWUY6Q&tag=duckduckgo-osx-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B073FHWTPL Check B+H also. I got mine there
  12. Hi, to those here who use icad and were disappointed, as I was with the lack of some basic features, please read the attached email I received from them as a result of a request to them about the future of icad esp. for us here. Sounds like we will be getting alot of features, both old and new very soon. Re_ Interiorcad update.rtf
  13. Hi Andrew, I did go with higher graphics Radeon Pro 560X with 4GB ram and 32GB ram. Will be downloading VW 2018 soon and will see how it interacts, hopefully no issues. Thanks, John
  14. Hi all, I'm updating my system to a 2018 2.6 MBP and also going from VW2014 to 2018 with 2018 Interiorcad also. Are there any hardware other issues that are known? Hopefully nor, but checking in anyway. Thanks.
  15. Hi, I'm upgrading to a new 2018 2.6 latest 560X graphics. I will also be upgrading from 2015 to 2018 VW and iCad. Is there any issues that are known about problems etc. Thanks in advance. John
  16. Hi all, great updates and thanks you for that. I'm about to update to 2018 VW and iCad. Still, as I said originally, using 2014. I'm not using any cnc parts of software, just need to draw a nice kitchen/cabinets/furniture etc. and get an accurate cut list. Shame i don't use more of the software, but it works. I'll still keep a 2014 backup to fall back on if needed. I do feel that if we all stopped buying the software until it was perfect, Extragroup might go out of business lol. Let's try to keep in touch and support this awesome software, cause I ain't learning a new one at my age! Sincerely, John
  17. Hi all, I'm still using VW2014 due to iCad 2014 not being useable for me at least, since that release. I do however want to upgrade my 15" mbp to latest 2017 version with latest graphics etc. My concern is that it MAY not work with VW2014. Anybody using it with any issues? Also, for all the iCad users here, I would like to put together a request/plea with iCad to implement the features that were in 2014 but not yet in 2018, esp. frame and panel doors. if you could sent me your email with any request on it and I will froward to them. I don't want to have to learn a new cabinet software program. Thanks, John
  18. Hi all, well I went ahead and installed OS High Sierra. I use VW 2014 because I use it with InteriorCad 2014 which by all accounts was the last useful version until they finish reworking the code etc. on newer version etc. So I was able to draw with it but i am getting the perimeter of the page flashing when i move the mouse and when I drag something it is not smooth. Is anybody else having this issue and is there any chance that VW1024 would be updated to work with OS HS? Thanks for any feedback. John
  19. Hi, does anybody know if there are any problems with VW2014 and High Sierra? Thanks in advance. John
  20. Good morning, Thank you for your help and yes, I did have grid snap active, duh. I don't normally design in front view so I had a bit of a learning curve (custom doors) Take care, John
  21. Good morning all, I'm having an issue with dimension tool. I'm drawing a door and need to measure parts. When I click and drag cursor the dimension is fine until it touches the other line, then is becomes a larger dimension, but once I drag back from line it goes back to normal. It's very frustrating and I hope there is an easy fix. It was working perfectly earlier and I'm not sure what i did to make this happen. I'm using VW 2014 updated. Thank you for any help. John
  22. Yikes, Lack of replies doesn't look good. I love iCad, as I said, using 2104, couldn't work without it now. I'll update anyway and figure it out. John
  23. Hi all, I'm a long time user of interiorCad. I'm still using v. 2014 and although I have VW 2105 I did not upgrade due to alot of issues with later v. of iCad. That being said, I'm looking to upgrade and I would like to see how any users are finding the latest versions sep. 2017. I did look at some videos on youtube and it looks promising. Any thoughts or feedback you be appreciated. Thank you. John
