So if anyone has some pending issues / bug reports please post them now so I might be able to address them before releasing Alpha 4 which will most likely be the last Alpha.

I'm wondering if the ROTSTEP viewing angle is a little off in LDCAD?

When the following model:

is stepped through in LDCAD, the following view is shown after the second step:

   

However, in LPub, this is rendered as

which does reflect the angle as shown in MLCAD

Attempting the render inĀ LPub3D, gives another angle altogether.

I think that MLCad introduced the ROTSTEP meta-command and LPub reflected the rotation accordingly. Unless there's a setting which I have accidentally tweaked , it appears the angle in LDCAD is a little bit out. This makes it a lot harder to use the "sample view" capability in LDCAD (which is nice) since what you see on the screen is not what appears in the build instruction.

Regards,

David
