    Landscape areas: Alternative schedule size

    @fhunt whenever I have run into similar challenges I make another plant symbol (duplicate the original in the resource browser) and give it another schedule size. Not ideal, but it works.

    .LAZ file coming in to document way out of scale.

    Kelly have you tried to import in meters vs mm?

    Landscape area challenges

    Good point @Tony Kostreski it's a bit opposite in my situation. The plant cloud which is working was produced in a 1:96 scale, this distorted version is coming from a layer that is 1:2500.

    Landscape area challenges

    I seem to be having a challenge using/creating landscape areas within a specific file. If I draw a polyline or directly draw a landscape area I get a very distorted shape that is not close to what I'm after. If I create the shape/convert to a landscape area in a new blank file it works fine, as soon as I copy and paste this into my working drawing I get the same distortion. Not seen this before but hoping I can sort this out.

    Data tag for existing trees

    Thanks very much @Tony Kostreski That's a huge help. I like the fact I can add a common or botanical name.

    Data tag for existing trees

    I ended up sorting this out using this section from the help files. It's a bit vague but got me to where I needed to go. http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2019/eng/index.htm#t=VW2019_Guide%2FAnnotation%2FCreating_Data_Tag_Styles.htm%23XREF_33520_Creating_Tag_Styles&rhsearch=edit data tag&rhsyns=

    Data tag for existing trees

    Hello everyone I'm trying to sort out how one can create a custom data tag. I'm hoping to do so for use with existing trees. I find the tags for existing tree symbols really cumbersome, for some reason they are much harder to work with when compared with plant symbols. See image below as an example of aligning tags, plant symbols align easily using the align tool, the existing tree tags never seem to align correctly which leaves one to adjust tags manually which can be a large task if your drawing contains hundreds of ex trees. I was hoping to work around this by creating a data tag for existing trees but haven't sorted out how to do this. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Mac Pro release date Fall 2019

    We had to shift form a 2012 Mac Pro last year and opted for the Imac Pro. Happy with the performance to date, the price was a bit tough to swallow. Saying that we hope to get five years of service from this unit which makes it affordable when looking at the yearly cost. Good luck with your journey.
  9. Happy to finally see an announcement for the new Mac Pro... Pricing will be interesting, but happy to see expandability is part of Apples focus. https://www.apple.com/mac-pro/

    Thanks for making computer work fun again!

    @jeff prince the property sizes I work with would be 1/2 acre up to 30...at least at this point. I think a big difference is your collecting your own drone data. I'm receiving the data from an operator. I'm going to send along a message later today and ask him some specifics. Your project is looking great, have fun.

    Thanks for making computer work fun again!

    That is fantastic. Your mesh looks very good, do you find it cumbersome to navigate with? The mesh files I receive are usually huge 500gb+ so I find I set up a file for the mesh only to make it easier to reference. Exciting to read about your experience and thanks for sharing.

    Nice looking work...your mesh looks great overlaid onto the site model. Well done.

    Until Next Time

    I'm sad to hear you are leaving, but very happy to hear that family is a priority and this is were your energies will be going. Take care Jim and thank you for all your work.

    basic advice on saving and sharing

    I'm no expert; if I were in this situation I would consider exporting the worksheet and create an excel sheet which you can easily modify. You can then import it once you're done, saying that I've not imported a sheet before so I'm not certain of the implications of this.

    VW2019 site model issue

    Hi I'm putting together a site model using shape files from a drone survey. Done this a few times in VW2018, the first time in VW2019. Files import just fine and it looks good in 2d, when I go into a 3d model I'm getting some areas that are blacked out. I repeated the same procedure with a blank fresh file (first was a template file) and I get similar results but the colouring is white instead of black. If I repeat this in VW2018 is works flawlessly, and if I save this file and re-open in VW2019 is looks fine as well... Not sure if anyone has run into this or not?
