  1. Usually, curves define the perimeter of a surface for the "create surface from curves" command. It sounds to me like you're wanting to create a lofted surface. Look up the topic "Create a loft surface" in the online help.
  2. Jon has it right. You need a NURBS surface for the base of the array. Use the Extract tool in surface mode to easily pull it from another shape.
  3. If your model was created in Vectorworks Architect, then almost all your objects will automatically obtain IFC data. IFC is a neutral exchange format that will export geometry and quite a bit of data attached to it. Use the command File:Export:Export IFC Project to create an IFC file. This can be imported by your compadres using Revit. There will be quite a bit of clean-up.
  4. Use the Export IFC Project to export to Revit.
  5. If you're trying to combine a large number of e.g. lines / arcs into a polyline perimater, select one of your lines and choose "Select Connected Objects" off the Edit menu. Then choose Compose off the Modify menu. You can do this a few times and reduce the number of elements in your drawing.
  6. When you say, " it possible to link “Marionette” and XX", what exactly do you mean by "link"?
  7. This is a Custom Stair, which is considered a Legacy tool. Add the Custom Stair back to your workspace. I've attached a little example VWX file. custom_stair_example.vwx
  8. By "Standard" I mean, do the interiorcad plug-ins use a standard plug-in parameter record. (I know that they are not "standard" in the sense that they are developed by Vectorworks Inc.)
  9. If the Interiorcad objects are standard Vectorworks PIOs, then the answer is yes.
  10. No reason why not. Just create a viewport, give it some nominal layer and class visibility settings, and put your standard notations (drawing label, title block) in the Notations group. You can copy and paste it like any other Vectorworks object.
  11. Yes. It kind of makes sense, since you can mix-and-match viewports (drawings) of different scales on a sheet. I usually put mine just below the drawing label.
  12. The title block exists on the sheet, which has a 1:1 scale. (The viewports on the sheet each have their own scale property.) If you don't want to put the scale bar in the Design Layer, you can put it in the notation of the viewport, where it will display correct scale.
  13. Hi antonf26, Do you mean you want the text size of the scale bar to change? The scale bar itself, of course, is necessarily drawn at world scale. The actual disstances and markings on the bar ought not to change!
  14. ThreeDot, that is true, if you want to dimension in an isometric view. You will need to use planar graphics and dimension on the cardinal planes. But anything projected onto the sheet plane can be dimensioned, of course, 2D or 3D.
