  1. Thanks. Seems to be broken in 2022. Nothing in the advanced settings affects the display in the OIP.
  2. Currently there are so few settings available from the OIP for spaces. At very least I would love to be able to change the name of a space via the OIP instead of having to go into SETTINGS. Is there a way to make more of these settings available?
  3. Does this De-wall the wall? Does it change it to a series of generic solids? I saw those great furring channels in the wall assembly. Was that just modeled or was that a component in the wall. If the latter -how do we do that?
  4. I think this might belong in the grand BIM debate rather than the 2022 - but personally I believe that type of detail should not be modeled. That is a great 2D detail and any tool that contains enough settings to achieve that will be too cumbersome to use. I am now (after I understand the tool a little better) excited that assemblies and there for renderings will be more accurate - but also still diagrammatic. Let details be details.
  5. This is exactly what I wanted. I see now that with some setting work - I can likely get close to what I would want. Thanks Matt!
  6. Here - even on the simplest possible settings - the feature does not understand where the window is and seems to be guessing about where to stop the wrapping.
  7. Fair to say: Not a wall configuration I would use - but it happened to be the first I tested... I could see how on a normal simple wrap this could be helpful, but as @Matt Panzeradmitted this is not a finished feature...
  8. Standing by this entire list. #8 can be considered done. New stair tool is just the old stair tool with some control handles - seems to be better for sure -but still having to choose what stair I want before hand negates it. I love the error "Stairs can only turn in the same direction, please make sure all stair turns are either all left or all right." Paraphrase - but not the design freedom I was hoping for. Viewport styles for the love of god. Just does not seem to be complicated to me. Just a global control over layer and class settings that can be applied. We can do it with the eyedropper - just give us a setting that does the same thing and auto updates.
  9. I was excited to try out the the wall component enhancements. I could get neither the new wrapping functions to work - and when I tried to push pull components as shown in the video - the wall converted to a generic solid - same behavior as today. Does this only work with special walls? Is there a tutorial?
  10. Guess it depends on your workflow. If the line tool is the only tool you are using - then you might be right. But despite the griping and complaining - there have been some big improvements in the last 10 years.
  11. Any specifics at all available here? Are their changes to how walls and windows work? We can see some updates to the stair tool - is that just some control handles on the stair object as we know it - or is it a new tool all together? These Teasers are not as much fun as last year.... Feed the beast.
  12. Not a lot of new info or abilities here. Most excited about the stair tool improvements.
  13. Picking up on this thread - as I thought of an added advantage. There are many times that we have a wall that frames multiple rooms with different finishes. Right now we typically need to split the wall and have different styles meeting at T and X joints even though the studs are designed to be straight. If we were to move to this system - you could have a single wall - the core assembly be continuous - but then change the finish assembly inside rooms. You would need to auto detect wall joins, as to know when to stop the finish assembly, but then the wall really becomes all about the studs / structural assembly and the finishes are just applied. This too would could eventually yield really useful framing plans. and you could assign a stud size / symbol for to the wall and have it better show you the framing compared to now where a generic stud is applied at the center or the wall regardless of the components.
  14. Asked this 5 years ago - and developed the famous Tom's Equation to calculate how many wall styles you will need to manage based on the number of core/structural assemblies and finish assemblies.
  15. seemed like a good idea - but no luck - lines still appear.
  16. Does anybody know how to get rid of the wall likes between windows?
  17. Its funny - this has been fixed for us - but I can see the macro running. It happens fast - but it moves over in reverse order then a second command runs and puts them back in the correct order. Maybe just a band-aid, but maybe for whatever reason something is preventing that corrective command.
  18. Yeah - I was excited about Materials - too excited. Jumped on that bandwagon - removed all of our material classes - spent a couple hours creating materials and assigning them to all of our walls...mistake - the limitations of materials meant I had to reinstate the class system - and then painfully remove the materials from the wall assemblies. There could be a scenario where Materials have an optional thickness attribute so if used in walls - it would be a default component, since all other attributes - Rvalue, appearance + textures are in Materials. 2 birds?
  19. Components as a resource! Basically you could create a database, centralized project, or firm component libraries. Could be very helpful.
  20. All text controls need to use modern standards. Instead of drop downs for everything can we please have alignment buttons? Text size should be a drop down box that can ALSO accept a typed number. No more having to select custom then manual entry. Both in one box.
  21. There are a few times where we need to have duplicate sheet numbers for different pages. Depending on the location of the project - the filing set may need to be drawn differently than our standard construction set. It is more convenient if those two sets can live in the same document - but we need to have a A-100 for the construction and a A-100 for the filing. Our workaround is to name the filing AA-100 - and then put a white square over the first A on the titleblock... Does not feel great. I love the idea of these sets. So many uses - Divide by series for big files (100s, 200s, ect) - by type (Filing, Presentation, Construction)....
  22. A little thing - but the wall join logic needs a tweak. From what I can tell if you pull a wall to another wall within some distance from the end of the wall, you get a corner join rather than a T join. This should be tweaked. If the wall is already joined to another wall - it should bias the T join. While we are at it, in this scenario it would also be nice if the corner join turned into a T join automatically by the D10 door. In general the wall joins seem stiff. The fact we have to heal walls still bugs me. Small things in comparison - but something that would make the day to day smoother.
  23. Thank you. Still a little foggy - so this would be a cloud storage replacement for dropbox / google drive that is designed specifically for project sharing - which is great. I went to try this out - but the cloud dropdown says "VCS Login not in Plugin Folder" - and nothing works. Any idea on how to fix that?
  24. Would VW be able to release a quick video tutorial / showcase to demonstrate how this is used in conjunction with project sharing and what workflow it replaces? It sounds super intriguing, but not fully understanding.
  25. Having this problem with the M510
