  2. Ive drawn a stud wall with the extrude tool and have an elevation viewport of it but hatches dont seem to work when i use the 2D polygon tool? Is it only applicable to walls and roofs etc.
  3. What formulas do I put into a database header so I will be allowed to write random text in the rows below, When there is no formula in row 2 for example rows 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 etc. are locked and dont allow me to enter any text?
  4. Howdy gents in a report how do I increase a value to the next full number, e.g if I had a skirting board length 5.4m how do I get it to be 6m in a report, I know in a normal report you put =ceiling and then ,1 in your formula but it doesnt seem to be working in my VW report.
  5. Had the same problem a few weeks ago, found no way around it.
  6. Yup nail on the head HorstM, I just did it my way as its quicker.

  13. Hey guys ive imported a symbol from sketch up into my drawing but its a bit larger than I want it so I scaled it but when I scale the object the entire drawing seems to drop in scale with it.

  15. Howdy gents im designing a recording studio and have drawn 3D models of all the equitment, speakers, mixers etc. however when I convert them to symbols and bring them into my studio the drawing becomes incredibly slow and crashes everytime I try to perform a render, is there anyway to reduce the file size?
  16. Yeah thats what I ended up doing yancka which is ok on flat surfaces but not curved surfaces.
  17. Howdy gents im having a few problems trying to imprint text onto a 3D object, ive converted the text from true type to polyline and tried to project the text onto the object but it doesn't seem to work, it works fine for simple shapes but not text. What am I doing wrong?
  18. Thanks Ray. While im here is there anyway to Slice a 3D object like there is in AutoCAD?
  19. Howdy gents, is there anyway to apply a texture just to the face of an object. Im after drawing a keyboard in 3D and obviously there alot of extrusions and subtractions etc. and I want to apply a different texture to the face of the subtraction but it takes on the texture of the object it was subtracted from.
  20. Howdy gents, im designing a studio at the moment and want to do each item of furniture in a seperate drawing and import it into a new drawing, how might I go about this, and should a certain piece of furniture need altering would I be able to alter it in the original drawing and have it update automatically in the new drawing ala external references in AutoCAD?
