  1. This is a great point. Can you allow users to make their own classification categories (in lieu of high/medium/low) so that per symbol we can choose to turn on and off different representations of assets individually? Extending further, could you then allow us to keyframe animate this, so that, for instance, we could have an asset in a space and demonstrate build out sequencing? I suppose that the idea to allow this to be used for animation comes from MODO. In MODO, all channels are animatable. This is very useful. Come to think of it, if you added a transparency option to symbols as well that could also be set per representation and animated, it would allow for things like making an animation of a space wherein an overview of the space is presented and then assets are faded in or out or emphasized or deemphasized as the animation progresses, but in a quick and dirty and quick way without having to export and go to Cinema 4D, or MODO, etc. This could be quite useful.
  2. Another example is, if designing a warehouse with high rack storage and an automatic sprinkler system and internal roof drainage system installed under the roof, then it is necessary to visually analyze and communicate how high the racks can be while allowing adequate clearance under the automatic sprinkler system piping and roof drainage system piping. If the warehouse roof has a long run in both directions, then the sprinkler piping and roof drain lines can drop quite a bit over the total run of the roof. It is useful to be able to look at a section cut to understand these spatial relationships without having all of the other piping in the foreground and background overlaid on top of it.
  3. This is very useful. Thank you. Please do implement the symbol section cuts feature. When modeling a commercial/industrial/laboratory space, it is important to show cuts through the equipment that is intersected when a building section or floor plan is generated. Having 2D views loaded up with 3D geometry can become heavy and slow to process. Having sections loaded up with wireframe views of equipment can make a visual mess. Often, if looking at a section or plan of a room with specific equipment in it, the value in showing the equipment is to understand clearance around it. So having a cut through the equipment affords visual analysis and keeps the drawings readable.
  4. Hi Ruiguo, I purchased a XP-Pen Star 06 in January. It works very well with Adobe CS, Xara, the Affinity programs, and Vectorworks. I do not have experience with the Deco 02.

    Vectorworks Architect wanted, late version

    Charlotte, $2200 for the VWA 2018 license, and I will pay sales tax and escrow fee. $175 for Bluebeam revu standard. please let me know if you’d like to proceed. thanks, joe
  6. Hi All, I am selling a Vectorworks Architect 2018 license and a 2017 Bluebeam Revu license. I just dropped the asking price. Message me if you are interested. My asking price for the Vectorworks Architect 2018 license is $2200. This is a 25% discount off of the retail price of the software license. In addition, I will pay the sales tax and escrow fee out of the $2200. This is a total savings of around $900-$1000, or about 30% off of the full retail price to buy the license new. My asking price for the 2017 Bluebeam Revu Standard license is $175. This is a 50% discount off of the retail price of the software license. In addition, you get the maintenance service for no additional charge til April. If you're interested in purchasing either of these software applications, please respond to this posting or contact me through linkedin. Love Vectorworks Architect. Great tool. Hate to sell it. But my priorities have recently shifted. Please let me know if you have questions or comments. Best, Joe

    I deleted my reply. I don't want to get into sales taxes in two different countries.

  10. Hi All, Has anyone paired vectorworks with projectwise for project information/document/sharing management? If yes, what has been your experience? or do you have experience integrating vectorworks with aconex, asite adoddle, newforma, Sharepoint, archdesk, selfie, or similar for project management/information management/collaboration? If yes, what has been your experience? and what about blue beam integration with these? I know that blue beam is integrated into projectwise and sharepoint. I've heard that vectorworks and blue beam are working on much tighter vectorworks/Bluebeam integration for the future. It seems that this could be a benefit when interacting with project management software that is also integrated with blue beam. thanks in advance, joe

    G-Drive vs Dropbox for Project Sharing

    Does anyone have experience using box for model collaboration?

    Just learned of two sources for free LIDAR data: https://coast.noaa.gov/digitalcoast/ https://earthexplorer.usgs.gov/

    Vectorworks and "Intelligent/Predictive" Tools

    Robert, thanks for the info. It will be very interesting to see what the researchers do. Sarah's work is terrific. Thanks for linking to it.

    Vectorworks and "Intelligent/Predictive" Tools

    Hi Robert, Thank you for the detailed response. The 100% python-based nature of Marionette is one of the things to which I was referring when I said that Vectorworks has done an incredible job of implementing a number of significant enhancements in a short while that are very competitive in the industry. Are there any plans to further explore (and/or make documentation for) use cases that leverage these capabilities? Perhaps with regard to vehicular or pedestrian flow optimization? Daylighting optimization? Code compliance?

    @Peter Neufeldthank you for the detailed and useful explanation. Did the surveyor say how he/she converted the data to a csv file?
