Hi Rick, how can I submit a dft file for debugging? I have a reproducible error that will cause SE2D to shut down.
Create posts 'messages' for new topics at the top '2DDrafting' heading, not under the 'Ask a question' message. They are easirer to find that way.
When you post to the message board, there is an area below the 'Body' of your post for 'Attachments'. Click on the Browse button to select the file to attach.
Hi Rick, thank you for moving my question to a new thread. But does uploading the file in the way you suggested mean that the public will be able to download my file? I am not sure I want to do that.
Anyway, I will try to describe what it is that I did that caused Windows to shut down SE2D. I was trying to draw a tangent line to an ellipse. Let me know if this procedure will indeed cause the program to stop?
0K, I suppose this is a major problem that will take time to resolve. But for the benefit of users here, I managed to work around the problem by exporting to dwg and then drew tangent lines to the ellipse in another free 2D package and then import back to SE2D for detailing.
Tim, most likely this is a result of a graphics card issue. I can do this all day without a crash. I would update your driver and see if that doesn't help. Otherwise you only option might be to try this on another PC. Please realize that Solid Edge is not just a 2D package but a professional 3D design product that works best with professional hardware to run it on. What Solid Edge Free 2D is, is simply the Draft environment from that product and it is not altered to have lower system specs just because it is 2D only...
I'm using the full SE product and in draft, I created an ellipse and then brought a line from it tangent and I did this several times. Now one difference is that since I am running a commercial version I also have accesses to patches that you do not and I'm on the latest, so that may make a difference. I am also running an HP Z400 with a Quadro 2000.
