  1. Hello, I had managed to do it a long time ago. If I remember correctly, I used an online converter to get a DWG, easy to import afterwards. https://mygeodata.cloud/converter/osm-to-autocad
  2. Hello, I have the same problem, this tool is not perfect, the lines always cross. I have tried everything. I use it sometimes to align the labels, but I modify them manually to remove the crossings.
  3. Yes, this is the problem. The solution I give allows you to put this barrier in 3D and follow the terrain, but it's just a roundabout way of doing what this tool should have been doing all by itself for years!!! If you put a control point at every change of direction/every post, then you get something very realistic.
  4. Yes in French it is 'Route' In english Roadway (Poly) 🙂
  5. I just found a solution for horizontal wires or bars! Just convert the perimeter of the fence drawn as a polyline into a Route (Roadway version Poly) that has the desired width and thickness. Adjust the road to the terrain model. And then duplicate it and move it on the Z axis to create the different horizontal lines.
  6. For the wires, it can work by drawing it in the 3D symbol but you should not choose the random rotation. Another solution is to copy and paste the fence polygon and transform it into a 3D polygon, then duplicate it several times and adjust the height to create the wires.
  7. Yes, download the OBJ and look, there should be a "texture" folder too. I understand, I have greatly expanded my library also with these 3D objects because the 2D billboards are not realistic enough. CgTrader is a good source for that
  8. Hello, I'm continuing the subject that has already been talked about a lot, it would be a great tool but it's been years that we wait or that we manage otherwise. To make fence posts, I use the "plant" tool and I draw a post in 2D and 3D that I save as a plant. I can then place it easily in polygon mode and it adapts itself to the terrain, I can also rotate it randomly for a more real effect depending on the type of fence.
  9. Hello, I see .fbx, .max files and .jpg images on your image, they are not the same thing. The .fbx and .max files cannot be imported into VW. You have to try to get .3ds or .obj files with .mtl and textures to get your plants in 3D. I buy a lot of them and some are well configured, others not. Where did you buy them? See if the files I describe are available too.
  10. if the tree is a group or an object, it is indeed the lowest part that is adjusted to the terrain. On the other hand, if they are symbols, then it is the insertion point that is adjusted to the terrain
  11. I have had the same problem for years, it only happens when the PC screen has been in standby. When I came out of standby, the font changed.
  12. I think the problem comes from the version of the file, when I open it on VW 2022 there is a problem, all layers do not follow the 3D view. But there is an option in the "document preferences" to enable "unified view". This is an obsolete option that no longer exists on VW 2022. Which version do you have? If you have VW 2019, you have to activate "Unified view" in the "views" menu
  13. With Enscape it is possible : video textures.
  14. 1) Use your 3D points to make an existing terrain and note its volume. 2) Take a copy of these points, move them in Z by the thickness of your pavement and create a second terrain. 3) You will have the difference in volume of the two fields. Does this make sense to you?
  15. Probably default class assigned to default object. Juste like DTM default class?
  16. Version 1.0.0


    (Version FR plus bas) Turns any text into an extruded 3D symbol. You choose the text to be written, the font, the desired height of the symbol, the extrusion height, and the class in which the object should be created. The parameters of the class will be applied to the object. Everything is defined, via pop-ups. Very useful for creating house numbers, signs, store names, etc. File version: VW 2021 -------------------- Transforme n'importe quel texte en un symbole 3D. Vous choisissez le texte à écrire, la police, la hauteur désirée du symbole, la hauteur d'extrusion, et la classe dans laquelle l'objet doit être créé. Les paramètres de la classe seront appliqués à l'objet. Tout se défini, via des pop-up. Très pratique pour créer des numéros de maison, des enseignes, noms de magasin, etc. Version du fichier : VW 2021
  17. @Helen Palmer You shouldn't try to do the whole hardscape in one piece. Break it down and it works much better. And use the alignment option only for hardscapes that are difficult to define, so that they align automatically. If you post the file I can show you.
  18. You should probably use the another plant tool instead. "Mass planting? " Look at icon because I don't know the right name in English. It's very usefull for mass planting. And works in 3D too if you need it. Let me know if it's better for you.
  19. Hello, here is the website to complete the collection. https://rendermall.com/en/3d-objects I had bought them in time and as much as I find the trees and shrubs are interesting, I find that the small plants are not beautiful... But I often use trees and shrubs.
  20. Yes it works now for pliginobjects but not with other objets...
  21. Hello, Here is a network to put random orientation to an object. It works fine for rectang, poly, symbols, groups, line..; but NOT for pluginObject like VBPlant. Where is my error?? Or is it a bug? In attachement the file (V 2020) with some example to try, change the criteria to select 'Visual Basic Plant" to try. Marionette rotation aléatoire.vwx
  22. OK problem solved! Even if I completely uninstalled both the old and the new version, I had the problem. So I uninstalled Enscape again and did a "enscape" search from the Winwows explorer and removed all references. Then I installed it again and it works!
  23. Ok, it was well hidden 🙂 Even with this beta version, the problem still exists. I'm wondering if it's not an error during installation: a plugin or another resource that would be misplaced, in the wrong resource folder? I am under win10
  24. I registered on the website this morning for the latest version, so I think I have the latest version available for Vectorworks.
