    How to keep Vectowrks open?

    Thank you JuanP. My apologies for the delay to give you feedback. I needed a weekend to get back to this. I can see that my laptop does not have an external card, in spite of the hardware requirements being higher than the minimum. I was not told about the graphic card requirements. Could you please let me know what you suggest? Thank you for your help. Kindest regards, Hanna

    Updating Graphics Drivers

    Hi Jim, My apologies for the delayed feedback. I needed time to get back to the computer on this topic. My PC does not seem to have a graphic card. It has an integrated one. I was not told about the card in the requirements. It has more than the minimum basic requirement but it is still a simple one. Thank you very much for your help. Hanna

    Rogue lines in 3d Label legend

    Thanks again, Mark!! The 'by class attribute' is what I was missing. I did not import the label legend from a previous file. It was brand new.

    Thank you for everything you've done, Jim. Best of luck with your next phase, and hope to see you back as soon as possible. Dan J.

    Rogue lines in 3d Label legend

    I took a look at your file. If you remove the pen from Class: Lighting-Label-3D and set the instruments to "by class attribute" in the Attributes palette, then the lines go away. The 3D Label Legend geometry is in a class that is defined in your Spotlight Preferences dialogue. I remade your label legend and the Leader lines seem less chaotic now. I really don't know why this is the case but all seems to be well now. Did you bring this label legend in from an earlier version? I have had problems like this with some of my stock label legends. Anyway. I uploaded the amended file for you to take a look at. 3d Label Legend Test (Markdd).vwx

    Braceworks Frustration

    Thanks for the reply Scott! Any help would be much welcomed. I uploaded a stripped file of the truss structure I am trying to calculate. Let me know if you need any further information about the structure and thanks again for your time! Decking Structure v1.vwx

    Ungrouping not working in 2019 (SP1) pc

    It's one of those features that can haunt you later when you have forgotten about making some setting the default. Maybe VW could have an option to show a message in the status bar for such settings that setting X is by default set to Y and therefore cannot perform operation Z on the selection.
  10. It took a little bit of searching as one of my other CAD programs uses RedSDK for its rendering but that is from Redway3D and not Redshift. I briefly hoped that if Maxon acquired the render engine used by the other CAD program that it might also provide a way to improve exchange from those DWG files into VW if/when the Redshift tech stuff trickles down to VW in the future. I know the 3D object generation on the DWG side is handled by the ACIS kernel but it has to be translated in some way like it happens between VW and C4D. I don't know how the translation is exactly done but if they share the same render engine then translating through that render engine into objects that both can handle equally might improve 3D object transfers. Or I might be way off with this assumption. Otoh, if Redshift tech does trickle down to VW eventually it may improver render speeds (and quality?) quite a bit.

    Braceworks Frustration

    I’m not at my computer at the moment but it will be helpful if you could post the file. Short of that, post a screenshot of each of the configuration windows for the braceworks objects.

    Braceworks Frustration

    Hi All, Looking for some help and direction. I am trying to estimate the weight of a truss grid with decking. Its a 36' (L) x 12' (W) x 12' (H) grid out of Tyler 12" truss. I am stuck at the first layer with the truss connections. I keep getting a warning "Cross section types do not match". I read a few posts about corner blocks and I have tried to use the correct corner blocks for the drawing and not what I am using in actuality, ie 5-way verses 3-way. I have attached a screen shot of where i am at currently....

    Stop Camera From Moving?

    How do I stop a camera from moving? When I zoom or rotate, the camera moves. I want to place a camera, and then rotate around from where the camera is set, just like rotating it on a tripod.

    Thanks for looking at this, Mark! That didn't seem to do it though. The file is attached. 3d Label Legend Test.vwx

    Rogue lines in 3d Label legend

    Those look like the much disliked lines that connect the text field to the origin of the instrument. However yours seem to be behaving very weirdly indeed. To get them to disappear, find out what class your 3D label is assigned to and then change the pen setting in the class to none. Keep the pen colour though. That should make them disappear. Could you post the whole file or one with just the label Legend so I could work out what’s going on? Hope that works for you.

    Export Lighting Devices to DWG

    Hi, I have problem with export my project to DWG. All my Lighting Devices hunging down in DWG file even if they are rotated at -180 in X direction. How can I export to DWG with correct rotation? Convert to group and DLVP do not works 😉

    Rogue lines in 3d Label legend

    I just started experimenting with 3d label legends. These lines are jaunty, yet unexpected and not useful. I can't seem to get rid of them. Any ideas?

    Best Methods for Extrude along path in multiple planes?

    Soooo. I tried this at home with the same versions of OSX and VW and I do NOT get marquee selection in Nurbs edit mode. So I think its fair to say its certianly a bug somewhere, very odd behavior. I do get the marquee in polyline edit mode tho.

    Best Methods for Extrude along path in multiple planes?

    It seems to work for me regardless of the vertices type. Can only speculate that it has to do with the fact Im on High Sierra and VW 2017 SP5?? To be honest I recall having this function in 2016 as well. Never been an issue for me. Are you guys both on 19? We are still refraining from upgrading. We had some issues with moves from Sierra to High Sierra. 17 seems pretty stable for us at this point so we never leaped forward. 18 had alot of site model issues which use that feature enough to warrant staying in 17. 19 seems like a headache with Mojave. Talk about upgrade fatigue🤒 Im really suprised this is an issue.

    @HEengineeringHi, I would stay with polygons and 3D polygons. See short video that may assist. Regards https://youtu.be/XHHRGaZhMaw

    Flowcharts for Speakers

    Great tip Peter!! Quick tip for drawing connecting lines as I end up doing this kind of thing all the time. I used to draw horizontal and vertical lines that overlapped and used the Trim Tool to slice the lines to the specific length. The problem is, you end up with all kinds of bits to delete assuming your intersecting lines are intersecting more than just themselves. Now I use the Fillet tool and set the Fillet radius pretty small so as to be unnoticeable. Now when you connect two lines this way, there are no additional lines to delete. You can also connect lines that don’t even come close to intersecting. It makes these kinds of drawings go very quickly.

    I've used ConnectCad for a few years now and use it for designing a control & data layout in all my lighting plots. It would certainly work for audio.
