  1. first ungroup the roof(s) to roof faces. You can then via a worksheet calculate the volume and thus the surface. the formula is: =volume(T=SLAB)/t where t is the thickness of the roof hope it helps
  2. I think the test button prints only to port #1 on the jetdirect. It prints 2 pages with lots of information.
  3. I can print with VW 9.5.3 on OS X 10.3.1 to a HP 1220C and an HP 450C. it's been said on this tread that it was not possible. What's going on?
  4. I 've been losing a lot of hours lately when Vworks 9.5.3 crashes when I save. I always end up with a corrupted file that is unusable. This happens very often and I have to save as with a different name every 5 minutes or so to not have my files wiped out by a corrupted version. Any suggestions??? urimevs (G4 733, OS X 10.2.8, 1280MB RAM)
  5. I plan to upgrade to C4D myself as I tend to get frustrated sometimes with the limitations of Art-Lantis. It has a mission anf it does it very well. The renderings can be very easy to produce and its interface is extraordinary simple. For the home-made textures, the solution is to put them in the Artlantis application folder or the folder that contains the .atl file (even if it means duplicating the texture files). The billboards are not of the highest quality (I would like to make mine but i don't know how) and very often especially for the trees, you'll have a noticeable fringe effect. You can get into trouble when exporting from VW to artlantis. I've found that the best solution is often to convert the whole scene into 3d polygons prior to exporting.
  6. I just discovered personal web sharing. hope it works for the images. here are 2 examples
  7. I'm using Art-lantis with very satisfying results. The light effects are very realistic and it has billboards of plants and trees (and people) that one can simply drag and drop in the model. However I like to mix plant billboards with 3d models from the modeler (VWorks) (How do I put images in my messages?)
  8. when you hide objects on a layer, all the layerlinks from that layer will disappear until you use the "custom visibility" tool to show all objects. However, you can end up seeing hidden classes. the trick is to go then to the class visibility window and just close it without doing anything else. hope this helps
  9. Hello Katie I use a quicksilver PowerMac G4 733 with 1.2GB RAM. Mac OS X 10.1.5, VWorks 9.5.2.
  10. Hello katie The information I gave you was false. I had 40 undos at a time but I did a clean reinstall of my OS X system a few weeks ago and the vectorworks settings for undoes had reverted to 20. So I had the slowdowns with the standard 20's. It can get slow to the point that even clicking on a n object can take 2 to 3 seconds before having it selected (with the spinning beachball) urimevs
  11. I also experience slowdowns witch are fixed with a Vworks restart but I'am on a Quicksilver G4 1.2Gig Ram with OS X 10.1.5 and 40 undos. (I didn't realize I needed so many levels of undos until one time I did need it) if RAM is not a problem, what is? Has anyone seen this behavior on VWorks 10?
  12. Sometimes, VectorWorks crashes because of corrupted documents. Those corrupted documents can also cause printing problems. The best solution always is to create a new document and to create a workgroup reference (witch will be deleted immediately) in order to import all the layers and stuff. It worked for me today? urimevs
  13. I have a similar problem if I open a file on the network. If for some reason I'm disconnected from the the other machine, I will get a similar error message. (OS 10.1 VW 9.5.2 Quicksilver G4)
  14. Hello I updated recently to 9.5.2 The install process was just fine but did not update anything. I verified this fact by getting the version of VectorWorks which stayed at 9.5.1 Happened in OS X had to do the install until it worked Properly hope this helps
  15. Katie I am positive that I'm not turning off the constraints. the cursor (the little arrow) itself does not disappear, but it won't change to an cross (+) for example in order to snap to an extrude while in 3D view; and "object" will not appear besides it. Also, I do not have to reboot the machine, just V-Works and everything works just fine. urimevs
  16. Katie I use a Quicksilver G4 with 1 Gig of Ram (so memory should not be a problem) MacOS X 10.1.4 and V-Works 9.5.1I can also tell you that it happens also in OS 9 although I usually give 200MB to the App.I have to say that V-Works does not crash when the smartcursor infos disappears in 3D (V-Works crashes have been rare in OS X); just that restarting the program fixes the problem. Urimevs
  17. Hello I do knot know if Andesign was working in 3D but the smartcursor will fail in 3D after working for a while. it is a bug and it can be fixed by restarting v-Works. urimevs
  18. I have noticed that VW-9.5 in OS X (10.1.2) renders 3d models much slower than in OS 9 (9.2.1). Other than that, the slowdown is barely perceptible.Am I alone in this a situation.Is it a nemetschek issue or is it Apple's Fault? I use a Quicksilver G4 733, nvidia geforce2, 1GB of RAM (I'm sure Ram is not the problem) urimevs
  19. Can you give me an example. I have tried the procedure but I can't make it work (vectorscript error)what should I do with the boolean variable? Thanks urimevs
  20. Thanks Katie I did not express myself correctly. I would like to assign the associative hatch to a class via a script.i found a way to do this via saving a strip-down version of the document (deleting everything but the hatches) as vectorscript.The process is cumbersome and only works for one document at a time.Maybe you can help with a better solution? Thanksurimevs
  21. Does anyone know of a practical way to assign an (already existing) associative hatch to a class.Any help would be greatly appreciated... urimevs
  22. I have had the same occurrence of disappearing palettes. I could only see the title bar. urimevs
  23. You can easily find the intersection of 2 overlapping roof faces by selecting the two and "convert copy to lines" them. a line WILL be drawn showing the intersection if intersection there is.That trick is not limited to this particular use.Hope this helps urimevs
  24. using a G4 Quicksilver 733 with 1 Gig RAM (vm turned off automatically) Mac OS 9.2.2, V-Works 9.5.0 (150MB allocated) CarbonLib 1.5I'm experiencing slowdowns (making V-Works totally unusable) usually after starting another application such as iTunes. For some reason, it doesn't happen every time.Quitting and restarting V-works doesn't work. I have to restart the machine every time. Help would be appreciatedThanksurimevs
  25. I have experienced this problem since version 8. It is certainly not new and is a big problem if you want to copy elements from a file to another. ------------------
