  1. I am trying to create a housing development layout model using Renderworks 2014 with the houses referenced in from individual VW files. Can anyone tell me why the resolution of the render is so poor. Each of the house files render absolutely perfectly, but when the files are referenced into the development layout (with all the roads, hard and soft landscaping etc) the resolution of the render (whether in the main design layer or a sheet layer) is abysmal. Please help - Client is not happy with the output, and am unable to say why I am unable to produce a suitable presentation drawing. Thanks in advance: Kevin
  2. Being able to insert doors and windows into a wall construction at a location of my choosing and being able to design cills / thresholds / lintels and reveals that look like the real thing. Current problems. Inserting doors and windows into wall constructions - This should be a user controlled option and not set as centre of frame only. If we were allowed to say specify the insertion point in relation to the front or rear face of the door/window frame and specify the thickness of the frame, windows and doors would sit correctly within walls instead of an arbitrary location which has a knock-on effect to everything else in this post. Reveals: Check reveals not permitted (yes a custom end-cap is possible but it then over-rides everything else) - This has been a standard product in other design packages for a number of years (even back to Autocad 12 + AEC) Internal reveals to soffit and jambs: Playing around with the No. of wall components to create reveals doesn't work for all but the most basic of wall constructions. The use of insulated reveals and cavity closers (insulated or otherwise) has been common practice for a number of years (at least 10) - why can't VW accommodate? Window cills (Internal or external)- Just does not work. The only way I can get something to display even partly correct is to create an individual cill symbol for the internal and external leaf and insert as individual wall components - Is this the only way that VW will work. Lintels: It would be nice to be able to insert a standard lintel into the construction, standard steel lintels have been used for many years. Why does VW not allow for them? It is also impossible to create a stooled window cill (email me for a description if you wish) Door thresholds: Work OK but not properly for internal doors the threshold does not extend the full width of the opening beneath the frame (which is the definition of a threshold), but external doors have to have a custom symbol created aka window cills.
