  1. thanks, kostadin 🙂 actually i haven't seen the hidden texts at all, even the selection didn't work. update: ok, the texts have been found 🙂 @olaf the text field is for displaying the record data in the tag body. rob.
  2. ok, here's the file. thanks for your time... Data_tag.vwx
  3. not quite, just for the listed items in the data tag styles library... i think the data tags have something that identifies the objects they can be attached to, but i cannot figure out what. in my case i used the callout data tag to make it a data tag for a 2d symbol for slab breaks (for wall breaks i use the us window as a simple opening, and window data from the object). the break symbol has a record attached with the description, and the two main dimensions. the data tag doesn't recognise the object although the record with all fields has been assigned to the data tag text field. btw, you can attach all data for one field with a few rows... no clue if there's a way to proceed... rob
  4. sorry for reviving. as solibri ifc optimiser starts to be a recognisable tool here in poland, is the previous opinion still valid, or has the sio performance with vectorworks (and probably not only) been improved in the meantime? thanks.
  5. the folder 'teamwork' resides on my machine, it's not a network folder. or am i missing something?
  6. ok, i've installed and logged in. now i want to choose my local folder for project sharing (which is in my user directory on the main drive of the computer) and select it for constant backup. what is wrong with it?
  7. hi tolu, thanks for looking at it. no, just dropping files onto our google drive in the web browser. i've set up my private cloud at home for this functionality, but now i have to do it for the company before i buy an additional nas drive 🙂 so the next step would be to install the google b&s client, but do i have to do anything on the server side? have fun, rob
  8. sorry for reviving ... how to access a project file located on the company's google drive? when i open a working file, there's no option other than local or connected drives... thx rob
  9. @anton5 i gather you answer to my #1, thanks for this. i mean a vectorworks project that has been moved from the world coordinates via replacing them with the user coordinates. sometimes the world coordinates are not retrievable anymore, we don't have a cache (like the one in revit) to store the world coordinates for the future exports. rob
  10. lacking apple support for opengl _is_ an issue for macintosh machines, and a big one. and, regardless of opengl presence in mac os, it really matters if vw still keeps opengl for the future releases or not. the sooner maxon introduces metal for cinerender, the better.
  11. if it's an opengl issue, then maxon will have to switch to metal for cinerender, too. because there comes archicad as well... i only hope that mojave will improve for this issue, because for the new computers it'd mean to go back to the previous os versions.
  12. and how does it work in 2018? there's no other report than the custom one, and the space finish one. i can't pull the sheet name from the sheet border record, as it doesn't contain neither the name nor the sheet title... the records seem to not work for sheets, but only for viewports. thanks for any clue. the more automatic, the better...
  13. @bryan g. i understand it as a real-time display possibility on the computer during the survey (i don't own disto) because of a relatively small display on the device itself. currently you have to transfer the whole data in order to be able to see the result, as the disto display doesn't allow to. @art v thanks, but the engineer doesn't want to run intermediate softwares (he's got enough of them), and his platform is windows (both the computer and the surface 4 tablet). rob
  14. so no chance for a direct, real-time editing of leica survey in vectorworks? vectorworks guys? rob
  15. i only had to remove one of the messed up objects and the whole cleared in an instant. but i dunno how or why rob
  16. hi guys, sorry for delays, and thanks for the feedback. the issue is the workflow. dxf works, but as disto has a pretty small display, you have to import dxfs in parts, in order to see anything on your computer while scanning. such autocad has a plugin, and you can see in real time what's going on with the survey. the above is what i've been told by the engineer working on vectorworks, and trying to utilize his leica. rob
  17. sorry for reviving... some of the prospects are asking about the usage of leica disto (s910) and the right procedure to collect the survey data. what formats should they use, as dxf apparently doesn't work properly? are there any plugins needed? thanks.
  18. i second this wish. in poland there are walls that have wooden or metal frames in the thickness of the construction core (be it concrete or masonry), with thermal insulation outside and the plaster or gypsum cardboard inside. it'd be helpful to be able to calculate all elements separately, just for 5d in bim thanks.
  19. hi alan, have you succeeded in finding the worksheet? i'm just scrutinizing the same issue... rob update: ok, i've found out, it's a localized version...
  20. ah, and another question: 3. the imported survey dwg should have the same units as the edifice project (either both cm or both m, in case of a metric system. when using centimetres, the world coordinates turn to centimetres value). does kml export have to be in metres, or can be in centimetres, too? thx, rob
  21. sorry for reviving of this thread... 1. is there a possibility to reference an edifice project run as a shared project on a plot set up with world coordinates? i mean some mark for a 0,0 user origin of the referenced shared project inserted in some place on the plot with external infrastructure. our infrastructure engineers need the world coordinates for their workouts. 2. can such composed project (the edifice and its surrounding infrastructure) be exported to kml exactly and without further manipulation? thanks.
  22. hi, sorry for reviving this old thread... from what i gather from the thread and what i uderstand myself the most advocated option (for having both the edifice and the site model in one file) is to place the house on the real geographic level of the dtm, right? thanks for the feedback. rob
  23. alan, thanks for your thoughts. we have been talking about everything, cost being the reason they want to consider other software at all. but one of the issues is the file size, and thus their question. i'd like to know myself which file size is still operable in vectorworks, and how the 40'000 m sq project looks like in regard of the model size.
  24. yes, i know, but i discuss the issue with revit users willing to switch to vectorworks. they ask about the size because revit files tend to grow big, especially when all branches include, and not easy to navigate. so maybe there is some revit-vectorworks file sizes' comparison? maybe somebody has experience with such project size (30'000 - 40'000 msq, i believe it's some 300'000 to 400'000 sq ft.)?
  25. hi guys, as i've not encountered anything of that size in my own practice, can anybody report on a possible / usual / average file size of the architectural contribution for a 40'000 msq residential or office usage edifice? i know it depends on many factors, as i mean the delivery (final) status of the model. thanks for any hint. rob
