  1. As a theatre set designer I often rely on auto hybrid to handle odd 3d shapes. It normally works quite well, but Suddenly, a quite simple shape failed to show section style attributes. Oddly when the the shape Is sliced withe the split tool, the left side suddenly comes out fine? The object is created from extruding a profile along a path. I have tried to convert to generic solid, no luck. Anyone know about this? 22193964_autohybridproblem.vwx
  2. Agree, tying projections to a single, flat screen is not sufficient . We need a dedicated projector tool.
  3. Hi Eb, Thanks a lot! All RW functions are restored. Thanks for taking the time to write. Steffen
  4. Sorry Eb, no breakthrough yet. I have notified tech support, but no news.
  5. I can add that reinstalling (without migration) did not solve the problem.
  6. Thanks Jim, I'm working from the train just now, so a reinstall is not an option for the next couple of hours. I will get in touch with tech support.
  7. No, I cannot create a texture. When I open the file everything looks good, the moment I change i.e. from top/plan to an openGL view, the RW options all gray out. No CineRender in the activity monitor. Can it have any connection to having updated Cinema4d to R19? I noticed that VW creates a MAXON file in in prefs evrytime it opens.
  8. working on a specific file in VW2018 sp1, when I go to render a viewport, all RW options disappears. The Render option in the viewport menu changes to wireframe and all RW options in the main view menu goes grey. The problem persists, when quitting and opening a new file afterwards. Seems that after some reboots of VW I get a new start w. all RW options, then, opening my current job , the problem immediately reoccurs. Workaround, anyone? st
  9. When linking a camera to a viewport, it would be great if camera name and viewing angles could be visible in other viewports, the same way section line instances show up in selected viewports.
  10. Zoomer, it will not work on this problem, but I can't wait to try it out.From my days with FormZ, I soo miss to be able to grab any point on any model, and move it in any direction. Bw Steffen
  11. Thanks Kevin It worked fine for a presentation, and once i get the number of points right, it might even look symmetrical :-) The "Create Solid" box was also very helpful. Remind me to show you the result one day... Steffen
  12. This is a recurring problem to me, sometimes working with objects in forced perspective: I need to generate a solid object from two polygons, like extruding one shape to meet the other. It's not enough to do a tapered extrude. Is there any feature I have missed? alternatively, can I somehow stitch the missing surfaces to the objects, point by point? I enclose a screenshot, the object that I used as a template is shown below. The two wireframe objects need to be top and bottom in the new object. Steffen
  13. I would like to see the 3d power pack offering an unfold of objects that curves in 2 dimensions. That would make a lot of sense for breaking down complex models for i.e. laser cutting.
  14. Renderings, interiors in particular would benefit a lot from having an ambient occlusion option.
