  1. Thanks for that, yes it was a mesh fence about 300m long with circular wires being exported at high res! Laura
  2. I am trying to export IFC on quite a simple (so far) project and getting absolutely enormous files (1.3Gb). We've exported on other projects no problem, the difference that stands out here is maybe use of the existing tree feature? I can import (eventually) into solibri and thee doens;t seem anything particularly complicated. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks Laura
  3. Hi bgoff That is a good tip, the posting back to the database is a bit of a pain, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to stop the name duplication when I edit a plant style Laura
  4. Hi bgoff To the database Thanks
  5. Hi bgoff I am using the polygon display under the annotations in the OIP, selecting 'boundary-dashed'. It's the dash style that i want to change (to short dashed) Any ideas how this could be done? Thanks
  6. In the annotation polygon display for bulbs I use the 'boundary-dashed' option to show that the bulbs are spread amongst other plants. It is defaulting to a long dash dot line which is not ideal as it's difficult to distinguish from solid lines. I can't seem to find anywhere to change the line type, can anyone help?

  7. I am finding that when I edit a plant style (say to change the default spacing) that the name doubles up. For instance if I have a style HelHyb when I go in to edit it the plant/tag ID is automatically duplicated into the name and becomes HelHyb HelHyb. I can manually remove it but it's very annoying. Anyone know why and how to fix it? VW 2021Mac Thanks
  8. This is badly needed and I think could be done quite easily. With a lot of laborious work it''s just about possible to do by making ordinary walls, adjusting the heights of the top and bottom at each join to suit the correct site levels, then using 'create retaining wall site modifier'. Might just about work for a very small and simple site, however it will default to a wall in the IFC data so not ideal. For more complex sites it's far too time consuming What I have in mind is a tool where you draw the step edge of a kerb or edging with the following parameters: Width and height of actual unit Level at top of kerb entered at each vertex Level at 'road level' entered at each vertex The last two become site modifiers. The IFC data would define as a kerb or edging and return a quantity in the liner metres. I won't even ask for fancy features such as left and right hand droppers. Yet. Please!
  9. Thanks Tamsin Did you find anything on the root zones? The only work around I can think of is to import them as notes and then put them in in the object info palette, which at least saves peering at a table for each one. Laura
  10. I'm trying to import a tree survey (VW 2020 Mac) but can't seem to find anywhere where the RPA (critical zone in VW-speak) can be mapped to. Can anyone help? Suppose can be done manually but a bit tedious. Also for existing trees it would be good to have a style that can be changed. At the moment if I decide I want to change the appearance, for instance by making the critical zone in red, I seem only to be able to do this one tree at a time. Even if I select all of the tree and make changes, they only seem to be applied to one. Thanks Laura
  11. Great, thanks very much Laura
  12. Is there a way to have a tag line marker other than an enormous arrow for plant tag lines? I have tried setting the attributes to a dot marker before drawing the plants, but this has no effect (VW 2020 Landmark) Thanks
  13. Hi Katarina, yes that would be great if you can let me know how to make a bespoke set of data. Thanks Laura
  14. Hi Jeff, I have found the density under 'rate' in VW2020, didn't spot it before because it was in with the pricing info. I have been inputting into worksheets the data I want. My gripe is that there is way too much data, the vast majority of which I will never need for a given project and this slows down my workflow when setting up a worksheet or adding into in the object info palette. It would be very useful to be able to limit the data that VW displays in drop down menus etc for a given drawing. Hi Unearthed, I've been doing a similar thing - have a worksheet called 'plant numberer' which I usually use to calc numbers for my custom plant records. I think this is the only time I have shown individual plant outlines, new client, I hope in future they will trust me to get the densities right! I think if I was going to swap I might use landscape areas instead. The other thing I've noticed is that VW's placing of individual plants is a bit wonky, often off to one side, due to the way the spacing has been programmed, so I am having to move them around to make them a bit more realistic. Something like this would be great! Laura
  15. Hi Jeff, Thanks for the files I know some people will use spacing, but Planning Conditions will almost always require a schedule with planting density (this is the case for the project I'm working on). I notice your file does include distribution rate, I am currently on VW 2020 and that option is not coming up for me when I create a report. I know some people will want the option of all of those records, but it would be good to be able to edit it for each drawing. Just finding and picking the fields for a report at the moment involves a crazy amount of scrolling and if I was adding the info into the object info palette it would be even worse. Laura
