  1. I am looking for someone to write a series of vector scripts for me. We are land surveyors and I am customizing VW 2010 to streamline the drafting process Steve

  3. I am still using VW 12.5. I have not used the site modeling much so therefore I am green at it. I am thinking of upgrading to 2010. At the end of these questions will you advise me if 2010 will be easier and better for the work I do. I do designing for land improvement projects such as lakes, aquaculture ponds also I am getting into landscape design. I am designing a recreational lake. It has several different components or features, such as the Retention structure 600-700' long and at the highest 18'. A bypass emergency spillway which will consist of cut excavation, that permits the water to escape during periods of heavy rain. It is designed at the very end of the structure. A core trench which is is excavated and rests directly beneath the retention structure, and backfilled with select material and forms the base that the dam structure rests on. Additionally we will create with the lake bottom and perhaps on the sides borrow areas to obtain material to construct the dam. The water line will follow a contour line created by the site model. I have brought in the survey data thru AEC Survey/ Input/ Import Survey Data. This particular project contains 127 acres and includes over 5000 survey points. The configuration of the project is irregular, therefor the contour lines do not stop at the boundary lines Questions Can I trim or clip the contour lines to the parcel boundary lines on the site model, as a part of my client presentation? Can the "+'s" in the site model as well as the elev's be turned off or hidden, for client presentation. Do each one of the described components of the design need to reside on its own dedicated layer or class. I ask this because it is impossible to design these components with out over lap, of either fence or site modifier such as pad. (when I imported the survey I checked site modifiers on all levels.) Can I design the complete design using stake objects, on one layer? (it is essential that I have cut/fill volumes) Now in the future will 2010 be better for these kind of projects?

    Thank You for the info!
  5. Under AEC and import survey data. VW simply does nothing when I clickon that option. I have never experienced this before, does any one know what the problem is? I have reloaded my software to no avail. Using Windows XP home on an IMAC

    I use Vectorworks 12.5. I has gathered dust for several years and I am just now getting around to using it. I import survey data pt # northing,easting elev and description. I am only working in 2-D and would like to see pt #'s and descriptions on the screen to refer to when drawing. How do I do this?
