  1. So..... Not getting very far with it. No doubt it is a very clever bit of equipment, but..... Seems to be very much tied to Autodesk Recap Pro - which runs on an iPad, but not a Mac. I'd assumed I could export a Pointcloud file from Recap Pro on the iPad - but no. It uses it's own format - developed by Autodesk - so not much use for us VWX users. So I have to wait until my mate who lent it me - gets it back - then hope he can export it from Recap Pro into something not tied to Autodesk / Vectorworks friendly.
  2. Nice to see lots of activity on this threat - but how likely is there to be an update to the UI this year?
  3. Hi Rob Many thanks for this. As you could probably tell, was rather grumpy when I wrote that post...! That helps though - need to take more time to check these things out. Thanks again, Andrew
  4. Hi all I am lucky enough to get a chance to try out the Leica BLK 360 3D scanner. Quite an expensive bit of kit - but a friend is loaning it to me for a few days. My first venture into point clouds but am looking forward to giving it a try. If it works well - it could be a massive game changer for me - just not sure how good it is going to be, Does anyone on here have any experience with it already? Andrew
  5. Hello What's the point in including an extensive library of stock symbols - if some of them are so heavy they just grind the whole drawing to a halt? Just added a chair to a plan and have spent an hour waiting for renders which previously took seconds.
  6. Had a good chat to Maxon UK technical support this morning - it seems as if C4D is overwriting the current file somehow. It has been escalated to the engineers at Maxon Will keep you posted. Andrew
  7. Hi Zoomer Maxon tech support here in the UK trying to help now - though they in turn are waiting for news from their engineers in Germany. Can I ask what OS you’re on? The chap I have exchanged emails with is wondering whether it is a Mac High Sierra thing. Andrew
  8. Thanks Selin I’m on Mac OS High Sierra. Latest patches etc installed VWX 2018 SP2 C4D R19 I’ve tried Maxon a couple of times. First time they said it’s a VWX issue, second time they ignored me. Thanks so much for helping. I’ve tried my distributor here in the UK too but nothing from him either. Andrew
  9. Thanks @rDesign- just tried setting up a second Mac OS User account (on the same machine) Installed VWX 2018 and C4D R19 but same thing happened (I say installed - I just had to enter the licence numbers) Have attached a video showing the steps I took - just in case I am doing something wrong!
  10. Hi Just downloaded and installed VWX 2017 - exactly the same behaviour.
  11. I’m going to install VWX 2017 and see if that works. Hope pe I can still download 2017
  12. @JimW& @SelinDo you have any ideas? Getting a bit desperate here. I've watched your videos on Send to C4D and I am not getting the same behaviour at all. Andrew
  13. Thanks again Zoomer. Followed your steps in the first post above - no Update Merge dialogue at all. I have had it at times - but can't replicate it. This is really frustrating as it makes C4D pretty useless to me - all my geometry is done in VWX. Will try Maxon support Thanks again Andrew
  14. Thanks Zoomer. I only have R19 so no issue. Still not solution to my problem though - here is a short video which shows what I am doing. Does this help at all? Can you see what I am doing wrong??! I followed your steps from earlier and no success. You will also see that the texture I applied to a shape in C4D is removed (though the texture stays in the file) I MUST be doing something wrong! Andrew
  15. Hi all I have been flat out on another project and just come back to this. I still have this issue. Driving me nuts. Am I the only one? Basically - I do not get the C4D "Update Merge Options" dialogue box as shown earlier in this thread. Have re-installed OS X since my last post too. VWX2018 CD4 R19 - Visualise. I do get this message when I "Export to C4D", then open the exported file in C4D and then save it. Could this be the reason why? If so - why no-one else?! Please help! Andrew
