  1. 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
  2. Jesse, Thanks very much, that works just as I wanted it to. Much appreciated Laura
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Thanks Haven't got all the levels yet so I think a site model with blanket level zero is in order.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. Thanks Tamsin I'll send it over. It is quite a big file so might have to cloud drop it. Laura
  12. 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
  13. Just had the same very frustrating problem, site model layer assigned and the texture showing up on the site model, but landscape area stubbornly sitting at z=0. I moved it onto the same layer as the site model and sent to surface, no joy. Went to move it back and accidentally moved it onto my retained soft layer (containing existing trees). Suddenly it moved into the correct place. Can't explain this, think it must be a bug. Laura
  14. Just as a warning, any reasonably large set of aligned hardscapes with interpolation switched on will crash a site model when it's updated to suit top or bottom of the modifier. Switching interpolation off seems to resolve the matter.
  15. Hi both and thanks for the replies. This works well if I want to add the landscape area to the site model 'as is' but for the site I'm working on I want the levels in the soft areas to be modified. That means I have to do two exercises - one to add a separate site modifier to get the levels where I want them and then another to add the landscape area. In addition I've found that the landscape area needs to be refreshed to take on any modifications to the site model - but because there isn't a refresh button I had to switch between 3D display types to get it to update. I really do think this would be a better tool if it worked in the same way as the hardscapes. Laura
  16. I would like an option for a landscape area to be a site modifier, much the same as the hardscape tool. This would allow a true representation of excavations for a BIM project (often exiting ground will need to be excavated and replaced with new topsoil) and makes more logical sense to me than projecting onto a site model. Thanks Laura
  17. I think it was because I had started drawing the hardscape with the default settings to 'no fill', then added the fill afterwards. It only seems to work if fill is selected BEFORE drawing the hardscape. Still calling itself a 'floor' which seems a bit misleading for a lawn and I'm unable to change that. Thanks Laura
  18. This is a problem for me, have been experimenting with hardscapes and like the way they can be modified with stakes, but surely there is a way for those stake elevations to report relative to the project datum so that in plan view they can form part of a levels drawing? otherwise it's repeat work adding the levels manually. Laura
  19. When I create a hardscape it defaults to a floor in a building stor(e)y and I can't find a way to allocate it to 'site' so that it exports to IFC with the rest of my model. Does anyone know if this can be fixed? Thanks Laura Stone
  20. Thanks for that, yes it was a mesh fence about 300m long with circular wires being exported at high res! Laura
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. Hi bgoff To the database Thanks
  24. 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
