  1. Any settings to make VW use All my Memory. Seems like it does not touch more then 4 gigs. Any other settings to Speed it up? Thanks for the Incite on cinema being able to do network rendering. I was wondering if Vectorworks would ever do it. Thanks all. I think i am in the mental state, of why can't things be faster. It is leaps and bounds better then when i first started Architecture, but we all seem to want more. Does announce out there just do renderings for architects. They always seem to have the Best system setups. Paul
  2. Hello all. We are going to be making the Leap from VW 2010 to 2011 soon. Not big since we update every year. We have tried it out and renders much faster. BUT....... I am looking for optimum computer setup for the MAC. We are pushing BIM, and Nice Renderings! Tired of Revit Renderings looking Better then Vectorworks. Also Looking into Cinema 4D Currently I Run Mac os x 10.6.4 Processor 2x2.8 GHZ Quad-Core Intel Xeon Memory 8GB 800 MHZ DDR2 FB-Dimm Graphics Card ATI Radeon HD 2600 VRAM 256 MB This seems faster then a newer computer in our office with these specs: Mac os x 10.6.4 Processor 2x2.26 Quad-Core Intel Xeon Memory 8gb mhz 1066 Mhz ddr3 Graphics card Geforce GT120 vram 512 MB We are wondering if we should update the Graphics Cards. We also want to find proven systems. What Graphics card will work the best. I have found the 3000 dollar graphics cards, but what will they do. If i have a file that renders at 3 minutes at Final Quality Renderworks, what would that 3000 graphics card do it in? Or is it all about the CPU? Thanks all. P
  3. Kinda odd not having first floor second floor, and third or roof in one file.Plus, they reference everything into one master file to print, is that were all annotation would go for elevations and sections? Weird to go back to one file, so only one person can work on it. Does anyone use the auto generate sections and elevations? Seems like you need to do 2d drafting work over it, to have them look like good 2d drawings. I guess what i am looking for is a file structure for a job. A suggested way for multiple users to work on a project that is BIM. Maybe it is not possible yet in VW. We use this program, and are not changing anytime soon, so want to work as efficient as possible, while still creating good quality drawings. In all aspects of the design process. SD to CD's. Appreciate any insight and help
  4. I use work group references all the Time. I am having trouble Work group referencing the Bim model, into a elevation sheet, and auto generating the elevations, so someone else can complete the elevations. I guess i was hoping someone had a better way to work on a Bim File. Like a Job, that shows the suggested drawing file structure, when working in an office with multiple people.
  5. I am hoping this is an easy question for everyone. Issue: I want to have a master file that is the building. Then i want to be able to reference this file to a plot sheet, and auto generate sections and elevations. Stair drawings, special details, from plan/elevation/detail. This is so that a person can work on the plans while another person works on sections and and another elevations. Or Is there another way to do this, that i am unaware of. Also. We try to have everything bim, and little on the 2d side. Help. Also just upgraded from 2009 to 2010. Paul.
