    Best Methods for Extrude along path in multiple planes?

    easy breezy...and I can get a BOM from it...no need to go back and redo it...done right the first time. However, I will admit that electrical conduit could be just a EAP...but I would rather not fight with it. So I just made...(see last image) (Note the texture labeling)

    Vectorworks to Archicad & vice-versa

    for Origin line up...I start with a Skype screen share with the other cad person and pass a test file back and forth and see what the default Origin match up is.. then make a decision as to who or what needed to move... have included a test cube located at origin to verify nothing has moved...also the test cube would be a standard size like 1mx1m or 10'x10' etc this way you know it scaled in correctly. also made a marker to locate the bldg to a particular coordinate point....Just set 2 of these and now your bldg can be pined to the site

    Title block madness

    funny how we never forget how to manage/edit symbols...but once things get automated then we need specialized training... I have thought of going back to just using symbols and symbols inside symbols to manage my Title Blocks... but then i would not get automated linking etc

    Materials

    you can buy subsystems...even tells the time needed to assemble... so translate to VW workflow as in stairs....we could have people that are just stair people and that is all they do...you then take those sub systems (products) and ref into your building...

    Materials

    After the architectural geometry and site work are done then it seems to be about fitting products together...please note the following... a simple example... https://www.vention.io also as to the above examples of plywood...they need to bend to make a ramp...so the whole "make symbols that we can clip" concept falls apart...

    Project Sharing - Stellar!

    Wow, a few hrs in...so far so good... Have set up a remote operator (dropbox) to make sheets while I stay modeling...wow wow wow! Side point...sheet makers need 64gb ram... this has really speed up the work flow...Nice job VW

    Sorry "remote operators" is a person that works with me but off site...try @Diego-Resuelvectorworks I have done some projects with him...

    Project Sharing - Stellar!

    I understand the reason for the checking out concept but Imagine a Basketball team needing to check the ball out every time someone got the ball and then they had to type in a comment as to what they did!! The game would take forever. While Project sharing is going in the right direction it needs to be live with no dialogue boxes popping up every click...

    what do you mean? The other person is about 100km from me...Like that?

    Project Sharing - Stellar!

    So yesterday was the first time I used Project Sharing on a real project with a dead line...(tinkered with it before) Had no problems...at the end of the day I had a bunch of sheets "magically" appear in my file...wow!

    a2 + b2 = c2

    If I had a cad system when I was a kid I think I would have understood things better... No matter what shape, the yellow and green always add up to the red... Done in VW...still shots made into video in Screen Flow.

    a2 + b2 = c2

    It's funny...if you put me in a room with a teacher and the clock ticking I cannot spell my own name...but remove those things and I can learn anything... I have the feeling that i'm not alone...

    a2 + b2 = c2

    @RussU absolutely not...I was so bad at math that I was put into the "slow" class since the 4th grade... then as an adult I started to teach myself...at my own pace...

    a2 + b2 = c2

    appears to be some type of geometric engine

    Another 10 min of riveting video content... Some of my best work...

    details & 3d

    so i have a large 3d library...great...but not sure how to capture details....yes i can do the whole vp sheet thing but then i need to do title block etc... so experimenting with the following...(see image) this represents my latest understanding of the product & i can just do a screen shot to send to others...which comes date stamped automatically...easy breezy no sheets to record or manage...disposable details that you pick fresh...

    cEarth

    ok so i got a free trial of ArcGIS...ugh...what a clunky interface...clunky navigation...clunky everything!

    cEarth

    A case for a universal browser based collaboration Earth. cEarth. How can the following be managed in a collaborative way? So if I wanted to build a Hypertunnel across the country... How do I get the existing conditions mapped out? This is not a "do it on my desktop machine" project. "you cannot manage what you have not measured"

    cEarth

    "cEarth" already exists
  21. digitalcarbon

    cEarth

    and this too https://www.esri.com/en-us/arcgis/products/esri-cityengine/overview oops oops
  22. digitalcarbon

    cEarth

    oops...looks like it already exists...sorry https://www.esri.com/en-us/disaster-response/overview

    cEarth

    if a dirty bomb was set off then the area then you could plot wind direction and message cell phones to avoid wind direction and direct to decontamination zones... ok...so having been involved with some lite disaster relief work I know that the most critical things are (for those in charge) mapping the area and managing all the resources involved...

    cEarth

    wild fires could be tracked in real time giving similar cell phone notification...people would log in and watch it on cEarth vs the weather channel

    cEarth

    also if there was a tornado strike in the area then the government (Fed) and local could coordinate all relief work thru this cloud based system... you could request drone maps every 4 hrs for overlay image updates... in emergencies it would track all cell phone movement on the map to better coordinate relief efforts... then you could send messages to all cell phones that enter the area saying "relief supplies found at...go here or there" this means that ANY cell phone that enters a zone of damage would get a message..even if you are out of state...
