  1. Really like how Jim spells things out here. Could someone update this and let us know if these guideline still hold true in VW 2022.....?
  2. Sooo archaic to still have to put legends on a design layer to have consistency....
  3. Yoo Hoo! over there at VW...got some catching up to do. Kind of an important tool to drop the ball on for a couple years!
  4. Created a heliodon and then changed it classes, it showed up fine in the OIP but something stuck with the originbal class I created it on. If I turned it off, I then lost all shadows. In viewports that did not have the original creation class active, shadows were lost and heliodon disapeared in the Visualisation Palette. Solution was to change it back and forth between classes and magically got fixed....only wasted 2 hours trying to figure it out. Geez! Ok wrong, back at it again and it was following another class, but solution was the most obvious (Friggin Occam's Razor!); delete old heliodons and just create new ones!
  5. Hi I'm trying to import these bicycles from the Ressource Manager and I get this error message saying it canot import? I've imported many other resources with no problem. Tried in a blank document, no success.
    Hi Dom, could really use this but does not seem to work in VW 2021? I upload my text file but get no spaces returned? Thanks,
  6. Nothing working yet, there is this new Message at the top of the videos to download Quicktime 7.... hope this is not their solution as it's unsupported by Apple.
  7. Hey Juan, thanks for the speedy response by the way. Check here https://web.dev/fixing-mixed-content/ you need to try it outside your office... security compatibility
  8. Looks like there's 15 errors and 2 issues, see bottom of image, mixed content blocked in Chrome?
  9. I have tried to play these videos on all my browsers and none want to play. (Firefox, Chrome, Edge and iOS). Let me know when fixed. https://www.vectorworks.net/sketchtobim
  10. Can someone at VW tell me what method is Energos using to calculate the U-Value of wall/slab styles, Effective or Nominal? I know it’s pulling the lamba for each component but not sure how it’s adding them up...I suspect Nomimal as framing type and spacing is not specified in the styles. If so I will just use the U Value override with my own effective calcs until this can be done in Energos. Thanks
  11. With the rising need and advancement of the Energos tool, can we have a forum section dedicated to this tool. The search function is not fun. Thanks,
  12. Got the same message here...quite bizarre !
  13. Is there any future development planned for Energos? Currently I see a lack of; Usage documentation explaining each input parameter. Advanced training webinars or Service select training. Real world compliance certification with any Environmental Design standards (Even the ones available in the dropdown menu are not certified) Here in British Columbia Canada, we now have the BC Step Code https://energystepcode.ca/about/ that we need to comply to. So Energos would need to have been tested with ANSI/ASHRAE 140 "Evaluation of Building Energy Analysis Computer Programs". Kiddy up VW! This ball of mud is melting as it spins!
