    I am wondering how to do this.

    I tried a few ideas and failed so far.

    I am asking the Germans if there is an XML tag to add and make this ON when CADApp starts.


    Anyone know what to add or change?

    I think there is a post here about that. BiodentG (Jorge) wanted to eliminate the wizard steps.
    I'll see if I can find it.

    <AutoShowDistanceToAntagonists>true</AutoShowDistanceToAntagonists>

    That works....
    Add to DefaultSettings (Or Settings) in the Dental CADApp Configure folder.

    All my customers and myself love this to be On by default.
    Such a nice tool!

    Would it be possible to show proximity to antagonist by default and with a setting of 0.3?

    Yes, I am sure that is possible.

    I am not sure how to set that up and other defaultsettings for the show distance tool?

    Sorry. Only how to make it turn On by default.

    Good question!


    Lets discuss and find the answer!

    I guess you can do the same with adjacents ?

    You could change antagonist to adjacent in the xml tag and give it a try.

    What exactly does this do?

    I do believe it is possible as well but I think it will be extremely hard without help from someone from exocad.

    It probably is just a few extra lines to the file but without knowing the exact name of the setting within the application we would just be guessing. They could have set it to <AutoShowProximityToAntagonists> or something completely different.

    I've looked through many xml files and I couldn't find anything that closely resembles or calls for this settings.

    It would just be a guessing game without some internal help :p

    This turns on by default the color map for intersections with antagonists. So you're saving 1 click by not having to turn on the feature every time you start a new project.

    You must try!

    It is the future!

    Pretty much looks like this I guess?

    I very much prefer to hide opposing 99% of the time and just use the "Show Distance" tool instead.
