Hi.

Apple Silicon full compatibility.

Reshaped user interface: ability to customize and snap the panels, icons and windows (like Adobe Illustrator).

Copy and paste vectors directly from Illustrator or vector program.

Thanks,

Nicolas

Why? Nothing ever gets fixed.....
Loads of suggestions over the years, example files and all sorts have been sent in by numerous members and simple, basic bottom line functions don't work properly, it needs fixing and not building more stuff onto of unstable old stuff!

Only one suggestion: return to cooperation with Spatial Dassault in order to make MTS less buggied. Nothing more I want.

I've just reviewed the four pages of suggestions for inclusions that you solicited for inclusion into TurboCAD 2021.
There's some new stuff in 2021, almost none of it the features that users suggested. Stil, let's pretend that this is sincere for now: (1) Return to flexible licensing for Shark Pro at least, that permits installation on multiple PCs, one active at one time. At least offer it as an option. (2) Manual consolidate coplanar faces, ie make an n-gon face from a manual selection. TurboCAD does this when a mesh object, an .stl for example, is solidified. It was suggested that Shark would improve its ability to do this better for Sketchup imports when V9 was introduced, it should be default behaviour for all mesh formats when solidified. (3) improved hires mesh handling and remove 3K face limit solidification, improved coplanar face consolidation when manifold mesh is solidified, (3) Reintroduce mesh to NURBS or at minimum improved mesh to analytics, improved retopology/convert to quad to complement those, doesn't necessarily have to be fully automatic like NPower's, Rhino or 3DCoat, but at least semi-auto shrink-wrap complemented by manual paint-quads-on-mesh like the three or four interpretations built into Blender and also available on Blender market.

On past performance, especially with IMSI's recent ownership, I have no realistic expectation that any of these will be implemented, but c'mon, IMSI, you can pat your collective selves on the back and plausibly point to this being a useful exercise if even ONE of them is...

I’m really surprised that there will be another version of Shark, I thought
they would offer some sort of upgrade path to TurboCad.
My suggestion would be to give back the take-aways from previous versions.
Fix the problems that have been addressed, and work on making a very stable
version.
The best suggestion I have is to offer the next version AT NO COST to us that
were sold a BETA version 11 for 500 dollars that was completely worthless
and had no service packs, and had to upgrade to 12.

The In Stream Zoom Commands should never be the reason for cancelling a work with multiselecting via keyboard by pressig shift.
The In Stream Zoom Commands should not cancelling the Multiselection via Keyboard with the Select-Tool For example, the In Stream Zoom Commands should work in the same way like in draftboard Vellum CAD.

Remove all known Bugs from the Software. For Example: The Model to Sheet do sometimes drawing invisible lines as visible. Thats the worst thing.
And Assembling is impossible without removing Links for every move.

Importing Profiles to the working-plane or to a Face will be nice and can be a alternative to assembling.

Search engine for Layers

MTS Results to a separate 2D Space and not just in new layers.

Remove the global Scale under page layout, nobody need this and it cause only confusion.

Flatten Draw Views never to scaled drawings.

Export metric STEP and not only "imperial".

Bring back Subd. to NURBS.

This happens using a space mouse as well. If you click on one thing move the space mouse, it's like it forgets what its last click was. Does this in MTS as well. Very annoying!

I'll just add that this issue was reported probably a couple of years ago now and hasn't been fixed

My dream is that v13 will be af free "bugfix-only" upgrade that will solve most of the annoying bugs in this software (including the lost license bug after a crash in rendering). That is probably the only way to save the future of SharkCAD.

Hi,

SharkCad is a fantastic tool ...
Solving the bugs and improving the user interface would be enough to make me fully happy..

The most important points for me :

1) Fix and improve MTS :
http://forum.punchcad.co...sts&t=9854#post37613

2) Improve reliability of links between objects and history tree (broken links, undo disasters, operation freeze with spinning wheel)

3) Better splines tool tengency (like illustrator, or even like Pages...)

4) Remove imperial units when not needed.

Thanks,

JL

I think 3 days after the original post was made and not a single response from anyone at Punch, or whoever is in charge, somehow tells me, and probably others, that none of this will be taken into account 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

For as many years I remember I have suggested an overhaul of the interface. The code behind is old and all the bugs will never be fixed but I have gotten used to it. However the interface looks old, I hate the tear off palettes that tear off by accident and crowd the screen, the layers palette needs work, why can’t you hide the work layer etc. Start the interface from scratch, that’s my suggestion.

The Interface is very good. Every other CAD Program which i tested have not such a good Interface like ViaCAD and SharkCAD. The Interface is perfect. You have by yourself no idea how ro make it better. "tear off palettes that tear off by accident" - Just learn to work with it. "looks old"........... No it looks not old.

Go back to Shark v10, fix all bugs reported three years ago and sell it as v14. What You think?

Looks like I used it 10 more years than you, lets talk again in ten years 😉. Learn how to use it? You don’t know who you are talking to. Btw first time ever I had such a disrespectful answer here.

Fully agree. When I first launched Shark v8 in 2013 I was sure it is software from late 90' - it looks like first adobe photoshop releases - and after these years nothing changed here. The same icons and the same palettes. Now I got used to this. I know this isn't the most important thing but to redesign the whole interface would be a good step - after fixing major issues of course.

Sorry, i take it back and my english is just bad. But i cant find your idea to make it better. The Tool-Palette is perfect. I find everything i need very fast and it need not much space so that i can work with a 1920x1080 Screen. And the so called "Prompt Window" is also perfect. No idea how to make this better. It showing Hints so that the software is 100% intuitive.
I can also say what is very bad of the Interface: All Child-Windows (Inspector, Concept Explorer, Select Mask and so on) are bad. This Windows should be integrated like a Tool-Palette. The Handling with the Child-Windows is very annoying and sometimes i need Alt+F4 for closing such a window. This is a similar problem like the problem with the MTS in Layers. When using the select mask should the focus go automatically go back to the Workingspace, for example. But good is that this child-windows are the most time closed.

Going back to a old version??
the best old Version is still 9 Build 1162.
