  1. Did frame stops ever happen ? Cus I don't see em in 2020.
  2. Structural member tool : DIN series beams are not correct. If I try to draw an HE-A 220 which should be 220mm a beam that is 1008mm appears There seems to be only one size beam available in the DIN series. I have signalled this before. There is a problem with the text file database for the series. It would be much appreciated if VW could fix this. StructShape_WFlange-DIN_original.txt StructShape_WFlange-DIN.txt (this is a modified file that I created)
  3. Yes this is a bit bizarre. I was wondering the same question.
  4. Hello all. Think I figured out a few things that deflated the sbbod. I removed old favorites from the resource browser which helped significantly. Also in section viewport I realized that the 3D geometry thing was set to very high. I bumped that down to medium and have not had any problems since. PS : any word about the DIN structural members? a bientôt marc
  5. Hello again, anybody having problems with sp3 2018 ? In many different files - size, complexity, etc - I am having problems with VW being extremely slow to change layer, change classes, edit geometry, render, basically everything - the last one I was editing a polygon. Sometimes everything is fine but I often find myself staring at the spinning beach ball of death and then having to force quit.
  6. Hello all, Not sure if this subject is still valid but I could use some help. I see that the wall component returns work for the PIO windows but not for a custom symbol. Anybody know if it's possible ? In 3d clipcube the wall components follow the 3d wall opening I defined for the symbol but in 2d view they do not.
  7. Thanks for the reply. I looked around in some of the library files and it seems that there are some missing and/or added elements in the StructShape_WFlange-DIN.txt file in the plug-ins_common folder. Not sure what "IPBv" is nor "IPBl". I tried contacting tech support but still no answer. How does one file a bug report ? I have another bug with the roof face tool - see my other post if interested. BR, Marc StructShape_WFlange-DIN.txt
  8. Hello, I just discovered the structural member tool and was very happy until I realised that the DIN series shapes do not seem to be available from the structural member tool. It seems that there is only one shape available for DIN. However when I use the structural shapes tool - wide flange 3d - the din shapes are available. I've looked around the forum but did not find any specific answers. I tried reseting preferences but that did not work. A few screen shots below. On the left is the wide flange tool, on the right is the SM tool ( obviously not the right shape ) (Update : Just uninstalled VW and reinstalled SP1- the SM tool was working with the DIN profiles except the names where changed. I updated to SP2 and now it's back to the way I noted in my original post. However the IPE profiles do seem to be working. Is this a database problem ? maybe some typos ?) Would really like to be able to use this profiles .
  9. Hello, Originally I was trying to make a roof with an offset but that wasn't working - see attached image - and the only way I could think of to make it work was to do two roof faces next to each other. But when they touch one side loses the overhanging component. attached image. Thanks for any insight and excuse me if this is a repeat, Marc
  10. Hello, It seems that the export as text file button is no longer available from the edit workspace window in 2017/8. Does anybody know how to export a list of keyboard shortcuts ? Thanks
  11. I would like to create a custom tool/script that would allow me to select polygons within a certain surface range. for example : all polygons between 200 and 300m2. I am looking at urban cadastral data and plot areas. Even more ambitious would be to automatically color code different parcel areas : 200-300=red, 301-400=blue, 401-500=green, etc thank you all for any help, guidance, suggestions. m
  13. I have submited a bug report. I am using an imac, latest os, plus latest driver updates I imagine. I perform weekly mac os updates. It doesn't matter what file. It happens even in a new blank document. I've also noticed the 3d axis lables in the lower left corner are not "rendering very well" Thanks, Marc
