I've lost interest and I'm looking elsewhere. Currently testing 3 other CAD packages. I'll pick one pretty soon. They clearly don't care anymore. This thread was started 8 months ago and we have heard nothing. Since, I've emailed in numerous times and heard nothing.
Can't keep talking to myself so I'm gone.

I have now got Rhino 7 which i am lurning to use, i prefer the Shark front end but Rhino is good. i will still work with Shark as well.

I cannot understand the way Punch CAD turbo Cad company work They don't try to promote there software that is a recipe for eventual failia.

as im not getting answered any more i'm beginning to think they have died, ignoring people is not a good selling point.

its sad

My suggestion ist to transfer the Software to an active developer team of sufficient manpower.
And btw. change marketing as well...
This software has so much potential! But its lost at detail level.

my proposoal still is, to rip of everything non-core-modeling related as rendering, constraints, architectural tools (*sigh*) and maybe MTS too (at least until the known issues cannot be solved because depending on Spatials MTS implementation) and focus on making the surface/solid modeling tools rock solid. Swapping the user interface to Qt could help to get rid of GUI design and have a cross-platform interface with a modern design and additional functionality.

So I tested argon (vellum) and the others which I believe use the same 'engine'? Same bugs. Undo was painful, weird graphical errors. Immediately uninstalled it.

I've since found another piece of software that works really well. It doesn't have all the add ons, which when they don't work properly doesn't matter anyway.
I'm waiting on some final confirmation from the support team and then I'm gone.
I've invested elsewhere, I'll be uninstalling this software and I doubt I'll ever think, I wish I had wood working chamfer.......

I didn't invest there don't worry, didn't fancy moving the problem. Surprisingly expensive for something that doesn't work very well either.

The one (can't remember which one) which has all the 2d sketches, constraints etc was the one I tried the most, but it was just the same as Shark. Buggy as hell.

1. V12 viewports do not print phong views dimensions correctly.

2. We need a good way to remove objects from a viewport.

3.I would like viewport properties to be accessed and changed through the inspector. This way I could change multiple viewports at a time.

4. V12 saved user views keep zooming out. Aggravating.

5. Would like to select parts in one viewport to copy to a new viewport.(for cut sheets and parts lists)

6. Would like a set scale for dimensions instead of scale by text size.

7. Would like a print preview.

8. Would like an option in inspector to switch dimensions from decimals to fractional inches.

9. Would like to be able to measure or divide a series of points along a series of lines and curves.(not just 1 curve)

10. When I imported an autocad file into Viacad, all of the text somehow flipped flatways and no way to fix it without rotating each piece of text individually. It was a lot of text. I wonder if you could maybe check into fixing that.

Also, groups of objects never show up in viewports. I always have to ungroup them first.
