  1. Hi guys quick question, My boss wants more advanced realistic renders, is Vectorworks compatable with programs like Viz and 3DS MAX and what other render programs would you recommend that are compatable with VW?
  2. Hi chaps I created a texture for walls in a studio and for some reason star objects seem to appear in a 3D render which ive generated with the camera tool, they dont show in isometric views, any ideas on how I can fix this?
  3. Hi guys, I have a 600mm wall and I want a door to be hinged in the centre of the wall but when I insert a door it hinges flush with one side of the wall how do I get it to hinge in the centre of the wall? Thanks
  4. Hi im trying to export a file to DWG, my drawing has a few 3D Symbols in it but is a relatively small drawing, however when I export it the CAD files reads as over 40mb, ive tried various ways to reduce like not exporting invisible layers etc. but the file is still huge, any ideas how I can reduce it?
  5. Select the class and make sure to tick the box that says "use at creation", then you can set different textures for walls, roofs and other.
  6. I have pretty much the same problem but my patterns dont print at all but export to PDF fine.
  7. Dang I use a windows, is there any free program I could download?
  8. Howdy gents, I send my clients quiet alot of PDF's which are mostly of 3D models and the file sizes are quiet large (about 6 or 7MB each) if I reduce the DPi it makes very little difference if any to the file size, is there anyway to reduce the PDF's without buying Adobe Acrobat?
  9. You can find all those symbols in the library folders in VW including the pendant symbol youre referring to
  10. As someone has already said set the glazing to a class but have the glass set as a different style of glass other than "clear" as it seems to appear as anything but clear, I find that "Glass Figured Light" seems to be the best textured glass.
  11. Howdy gents, what im trying to do is show a client how to install acoustic panels and what i want to do is show it in a quick time video, is it possible to do this with vectorworks? i have no problem doing walk throughs etc. but im not sure if VW can show how items being installed. Will i just have to produce a series of images?
  12. 5 to 7 times faster is a gross exaggeration from my experience so far.
  13. You should post an image of the problem
  14. Really? Wow and you call yourself a VW addict, you should be ashamed of yourself.
  15. How do I import 2010 drawings into the 2011 demo? I tried just copying and pasting a 3D object but it seems to come in in 2D?
  16. Shell tool seems to be the easiest answer.
  17. where can I download the free trial version of VW2011?
  18. Well thats pretty disappointing, was hoping that they would sort this problem for VW2011, guess they decided that a revamped wall tool wouldnt sell as many copies as a revamped RW tool.
  19. Howdy gents im exporting drawings to PDF and I seem to have come accross a bit of a problem, certain objects seem to have a different lineweight to others in the PDF even tho they were drawn on the same layer/class with the same lineweights. The walls seem to be the biggest culprit, any ideas?
  20. Amen to that! Ive also never been able to do a Final Quality Radiosity render its just too much for my computer.
  21. Hi Michael ive also tried that but no success.
  22. Howdy gents im installing lights on the floor of my drawing to project light onto the walls, ive set up a spot light to project the light which is fine but the object which is projecting the light is still dark, which looks strange in a render seeing light project from a dark bulb, ive put a point light in the object and made the object glass but it still doesnt look as if its producing the light in the render, any ideas?
  23. But I would also like any changes to update in the viewports which doesn't leave me with many options.
