    Stage Deck Fill

    Hi Team, I have a question about Filling Objects, I have taken a stage deck that I created using the stage deck tool and cut a hole in it using the subtract solids tool to make a trap door, the new object now has no fill in Top/Plan view, how can I give this a colour fill like the deck next to it Thanks Dave.

    Stage Deck Fill

    Hi Pat, Thanks for your ideas, yes a very easy work around indeed ....... I actually though it was something I was missing with the Subtracted Solid but of course it has no 2D components, Probably because I subtracted from the deck which has 2D I was expecting the new object to have it as well. Thanks for the help Dave.

    Light Bulb

    Hello Team, Does anyone have any tips for lightbulbs and rendering them ? I am trying to achieve the glass bulb effect shown in the attachment, my previous attempts just look like globes or spheres, any tips gratefully received Dave.

    Light Bulb

    HI Jim, Thats not bad for 20 Mins, I would think it would take me about 20 hours just to get to that stage ! I look forward to seeing your finished render, was all this done in VW ? Thanks Dave.

    Light Bulb

    I wish there were results to share, Bulb has been sidelined as the project changed, will still try to model it though for my own findings & learning

    Light Bulb

    Hi Guys, Thanks so much for all your posts and tips, this has really helped me, Some of the tip produces great results but render time is huge, I'm still tinkering to find a happy balance....... My project has 22 hanging light bulbs so render time is important, hopefully i'll be able to post my final result here soon, Thanks once again Dave

    Lighting Symbols

    Hi All, Does anyone have any ideas as to where I can find a pretty uniform set of symbols for VW. Over the years I have collected many symbols from all different places and I would like to get some that all look relatively the same. Any ideas gratefully received. Cheers. D

    Lighting Symbols

    Hi All, Thanks for your replies, yes I am looking for any alternatives as the VW2011 ones don't have a lot of new symbols. I am looking for GLP Impression 120 fixtures and a Robe or Clay Paky Beam Fixture. Tamsin, thanks for the heart, it works a treat. Thanks Again, Dave.

    Fixture Angles

    Hi Guys, How do I angle a 6 lamp Par 64 bar, I have a show that requires all my 6 lamp par bars to be at 15? & 25? angles but I keep getting the error that hybrid objects can only be rotated around the z axis, surly there must be an easy way to do this ? Thanks in advance for any help

    rotating a hybrid object

    Hi Guys, How do I rotate a hybrid object? I have drawn a truss hanging at a 30? angle and I would like to have the fixtures on that truss to hang at 30? also, how do I do it ? Can it be that hard, I've tried using the rotate 3D tool but it tells me that I can only rotate hybrid objects round he Z axis....... surely not !! Any help appreciated Cheers, Dave.

    Truss Turned Grey

    Can anyone help me, whenever I draw a truss it seems to render grey, i cant seem to find out why, I have attached a file.... any help would be greatly received. Cheers, Dave.

    Truss Turned Grey

    Hi Michael, I cant do the hanging angle thing as the truss I created I had to make it into a group as it was made up of 8 bits of truss so the option to set the hanging angle disappears as soon as it becomes a group... any ideas.

    Truss Turned Grey

    Hi Michael, OK I am closer to finding what the problem is with the truss turning grey, i created the truss configuration again, then clicked create symbol as i need to be able to rotate this object 45? and use it in other drawings. when i open the drawing and insert it onto the page as soon as I render it shows grey, what am I doing wrong in the conversion to a symbol ?

    Truss Turned Grey

    strange thing is though its happened on the last 3 drawings I have done, they have all started rendering in silver but then something changes them and they turn the dark grey colour,

    Truss Turned Grey

    Hi Michael, this is strange as I dont think I have changed anything to a lighting object. I am going to re draw thinks today and see what happens. Thanks Dave.
