    Trees in VW architect

    Thanks cberg. 3d really. where are the image prop trees? in the subscriber libraries? I can find landmark trees, bring them in, but can't change their properties in any way.

    Trees in VW architect

    Hello. Never really needed them before, but I have a question about trees in VW Architect (2018, VSS). Am I right to think I have very limited options with out generating the content myself? Either the VBvisual plant, with limited choice and no manipulation of spread, limited manipulation of height to set sizes only? Or the VW library content as a VSS user with no ability to change the std sizes at all? Is there a tool bar I need to turn on, or is this all a limitation of architect, with out the full landmark capability? Thanks

    Site Model vs Site Model Snapshot

    Also the terrain modifiers applying to proposed / existing option does not work. It applies the modifiers regardless if the modifiers are selected to apply only to existing or only to proposed, and the site model is set to the same option. The only way I can get optional modifiers to work is to put the modifiers in separate layers, then within the site model setting, ensure its only apply modifiers in selected layers and then select the right layers. VW Developers, can you look at this please?

    Site Model vs Site Model Snapshot

    No Answer posted for this? I have the same question. and another? how come when I take a snap shot it seems to offset the snap shot 5m ish in the z plane?

    Boolean tick for further inputs

    Hello all, I fear the answer to this is no.... But is there any way that a Boolean tick box input can launch/activate/or grey out additional input variables in the OIP? Like, include top member? tick, which un-greys a slider or user input box? or something Thanks Rob

    Thanks everyone. I got the script working for what I need. I had not noticed the undo bug identified. I hope you swat it!

    Extending line length

    far too curious so tried it this morning. It works, thanks. So very helpful. I'm trying to improve my script further, so have tried to add a DoMenuTextByName command to put in "Combine in To Surface". I've ripped this from @Marissa Farrell compose node in another discussion. Which activates the tool, but also (because I grabbed it from a compose node) duplicates the objects and puts them in a group, which means I can't click inside the polygon. I tried taking out the bits I don't need, or at least I thought were bits I don't need, and the tool no longer activates. What am I missing? Thanks again.

    awesome. I think this might work, I'll try it tonight. Thanks again, you have been a great help.

    Extending line length

    Hello, I need a script that take a lot of lines, and extends their length slightly. I'm not that far away I think. I hope there would be a set line length node... i.e just like if you select a single line, go to the OIP, put it on the polar display, keep the centre line fixed and put + 10 or whatever in the length. This keeps the centre in the same place, keeps the angle the same, but extends the length. So I can find a get line angel node, get line centre node, But the set line node is based on an start point and and point. I guess its possible to set the new points based on a trigonometric function from the centre point and the angle? but it must very close to 20 years since I did trigonometry!!! any simpler suggestions gratefully received. The reason I'm doing this is I need to tidy up a messy output drawing where hundreds of shapes are made up of lines and arcs BUT some of the lines don't quite touch (.0001mm) so I can't use compose. My plan is to make the arc sweeps longer (I've got this working thanks to some fantastic help from @Kevin McAllister on a different but similar problem) and make the lines 1% longer (keeping their centres and angles), and then create a closed polygon using the combine into surface paint bucket tool. The last stem is manual, but that's not the end of the world. If I'm missing any tricks, do please let me know. Thanks Rob
