  1. The dialogue box says 'press a keyboard letter to go straight to that part of the list' but nothing happens when I do so. Laura
  2. It would be really useful to be able to set a default site model layer for landscape areas that is used at creation. Most of the time I would only want to use one site model and it takes a long time to change the setting for every landscape area on a drawing. Laura
  3. I would like to be able to create custom railing panels. This is one that I have bodged together by making a custom 'post' that is actually a panel and then using a frame to form the post. Also 'send to surface' so that I don't have to laboriously set the correct heights at the beginning and end of each run. Laura
  4. Jesse, Thanks very much, that works just as I wanted it to. Much appreciated Laura
  5. Hi Jesse, Thanks very much, I would like this option please - "add lines of code to set all the attributes of the selected items to be By Class" I don't normally have 2D attributes by class (it is only fill and pen attributes that I need here) it's just quite handy to have the site modifiers by class, then I can see which ones I've finished. Laura
  6. Great, thanks Jesse that works perfectly and will save me a whole load of time. Just to make it a bit more complicated, when I do the change manually it gives me an option to change all attributes to the new class defaults, it that something that could be written into the script? Laura
  7. Is there a way of making a similar tool that would move a selected object into a class (in this case Site DTM Modifiers) without changing the active class? I am using 3D poly modifiers and it's very time consuming to scroll dow through the list each time. Custom tool used to do things like this without any programming knowledge a long time ago. Thanks Laura
  8. Thanks Haven't got all the levels yet so I think a site model with blanket level zero is in order.
  9. Can anyone tell me why my plants are floating in their landscape area style? The more components I add the higher they float. Thanks Laura floating plants.vwx
  10. Hi Mihail It seems like my colleague has solved the mystery. We exported using these settings (attached) and it worked. I had unchecked the export site model box on the grounds that I wasn't exporting the layer with the site model on, could that have been the problem? Laura
  11. Hi Mihail Here is a small extract from the file, I have just included some hardscapes and landscape areas. The Architects are using Revit 2021. I sent a revit export but it had the same issue This is the latest from them: "I’ve attached a screenshot from the previous model (27/11/20) showing the IFC parameters I mentioned in the first email that enable material changes below." The previous model was the one that they could work with. Thanks Laura IFCtest.vwx
  12. I have exported an IFC file and it opens in Solibri but the Architect, who is using Revit, tells me that it "won’t allow us to add on material properties, the model components seem to be made up of import symbols. As a result of this we’re unable to render the model as it comes out coloured grey" The objects are hardscapes and landscape areas, I can see that the hardscapes have nothing filled in under 'material' in Solibri. Could this be the issue? If so what IFC data maps to material? A file that i had sent earlier that was just extrudes made into symbols with IFC data attached was apparently fine and they could attach materials. I have tried sending an rvt file but it is very big and according the export will have no data, just geometry. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks Laura
  13. Thanks Tamsin I'll send it over. It is quite a big file so might have to cloud drop it. Laura
  14. Hi Tamsin I've checked both of those and the site model is set to respond to site modifiers on the layer that the landscape area is on and the landscape area is set to the site model layer. Funnily enough the layer that I accidentally moved it onto was not a layer that the site model was set to. When I moved it back onto the correct layer it went back to z=0. I guess I can put it on the 'wrong' layer to export IFC to the Architect but it is a bit of a pain. Laura
