    procedure for 3ds import

    Ah, alas, can't have everything. Im trying to create a consolidated library of information, i do have alot of 3ds and obj files to import. Hoping i would be able to conserve time by mass importing 3ds, but seems i might have to convert to obj or skp before i can do that. Keep you updated 😉 Thank you Marissa!

    procedure for 3ds import

    hi everyone, Trying to figure out procedure callout in python for 3ds import. For OBJ for example it is : vs.importOBJ(filename, True) for sketchup vs.Importsketchup(filename, True) i have tried vs.import3ds(filename, True) and vs.import3d(filename, True) I'm trying to create another import node for 3ds import based on DOMC's import sketchup script. So far it worked for OBJ, but can't seem to be able to get 3ds to work. Maybe someone can help me please? :)

    autoupdate tag tool bug

    I don't know if the team is aware of this issue yet, but.... If tags are used in worksheets and the id or a record is modified inside the worksheet, the tags (that display the custom id or record) don't auto update the custom ID in the viewport unless they are moved or edited directly. In other words, it appears that the tags 'know' they are updated, they just don't update their appearance until they are moved. This is specific to custom records only i believe. Could anyone try something similar to see if I'm not unique in this department?

    Custom ID tags for windows and doors

    we need to be able to scale the data tag tool, and / or provide text styles to them (text styles can be different sizes depending on how they are used as well). I'm trying to integrate them everywhere for annotation. Other than that, I have no issues with the data tag tool, it fixes so many issues! speaking of which, i think i just found a bug ) Ill post it on another post, but if tags are used in worksheets and the id or a record is modified in the worksheet, the tags (that display the custom id or record) don't auto update the custom ID in the viewport unless they are moved or edited directly. In otherwords, the tags know they are updated, they just don't update their appearance. This is specific to custom records only i believe.

    Trying to convert RTE revit library files

    Hi everyone, I've been trying to create a standard catalog of wall types with UL, R and STC values in VW. In light of saving time, i was wondering if it was possible to import standard library types that are provided by manufacturers like USG or similar? They only provide RTE file types for some reason, and i cannot get them to be imported into VW. Any ideas ? (Other than getting a trial of Revit, importing the wall types into there and then saving it as an RVT file...lol) Thanks!

    Worksheet Improvements

    Also, is it possible to make hidden columns? (For calculation purposes, or referencing information that shouldn't appear in the worksheet for modification purposes)

    Bug-Imported Slab retains ID

    Hi Everyone, Just might have found a new bug. Floor slab retains old style ID when imported from another file, even after deleting the ID entity from the floor slab itself later on. To make things worse, after I have created a separate floor style (I didn't want it to be included in the schedule), i though it would disappear completely, and turns out it doesn't. Took me a bit of tinkering to figure out this bug because i was trying to create a schedule of existing and new floor types. *Update When renaming and resaving the ID field, it changes the ID in the schedule. However, when reverting back to a blank in the ID Field, it reverts to the old imported ID. Image below shows that the slab is 'unstyled' However, if you go to the IFC_SlabCommon record field, the imported ID is grayed out UPDATE 2: For some reason when creating a new slab, the ID defaults to ST-01.
  10. Anyone who knows how to host a mysql server - OrangeHRM is great. I'm hosting it on windows for now with XAMP server. Linux is by far more secure however. It's opensource, so the hardest part is learning to how php / mysql server on localhost or local server and managing ports / domains with a LAMP box. If web is necessary, using dynamic dns along with pfsense or kemp loadmaster for reverse proxy. Make sure to use SSL for security (i.e. www.sslforfree.com or letsencrypt) The only thing you might need to pay for is a domain, but there are plenty that are also free - like DDNS or something similar. Google offers ddns services, so as long as you have a ddns client on the server that connects to google domains, you would be good to go. FYI a domain through google is about 15 dollars a year, so it's relatively cheap. Everything in here thus far is opensource, and is free to use so long as you know how to implement it. FYI, learning curve can be steep.

    Can't grey out layers in detail viewports

    Hi Everyone, Don't know if everyone has this, but detail section viewports, can the layers be greyed out? For me that seems to be an issue as - if i enable the greyed out layers or the full view layers, they all appear the same. Note i have the latest version (2019) and service pack 4. Thanks for your help!

    Worksheet Summary Problem w/ Tags and Geometry Ref

    Update - Noticed that despite having the same dimensions, the ratio of the objects are different. Is there a way to globally update all objects ratio without having to re-enter the dimensions of every single object? The moment I update the dimensions, or retype the dimension, it updates the ratio. This also helps with the summary - it starts to summarize the contents of the the file better. Is there a way to auto update the ratios of all of the geometry that have the same dimensions dynamically? or is there a way to re enter the =height and =width columns (they remain grey). It might help with the ratio problem.
  14. Hi everyone, Maybe someone by chance ran into a similar problem? I have a series of elevations where i used geometry and tags to summarize window heights and window widths (among various other elements) in a worksheet. Normally, when i do window schedules, or door schedules in a bim model, the information doesn't repeat when i enable 'summarize items'. Here, for the life of me, i can't figure out why when i summarize by its id (custom record), by the geometry height =height, and by geometry width =width i get repeated elements that wont summarize, even if they display the same information. but when i just summarize by ID i get this Perhaps someone can help me out? Thanks in advance!
  15. or rather to freely modify the elevations and stories similar to the way revit does it. I would think that's simple enough?
