  1. You need to assign a IFC definition to the symbols, even generic IFC definition will be enough, otherwise the objects will not be recognized by the IFC softwares
  2. You need to define a component in the roof to clip the walls
  3. Put a 3D locus to each of the points you want the fence to lock, then use the 3D mode of the fence Tool
  4. A way to do it is ungroup the main roof and clip just the remaining Roof Face in Top/Plan view
  5. With the cabinet tool you can't do that, un-check the countertop from the cabinet, use the Countertop tool and then you can create an opening for the sink, but you will have to manually adjust the size of the hole in the Countertop to fit the sink
  6. I also have this problem, with site models I've tried several "workarounds" to no avail, any suggestions?
  7. Greetings I've working remotely as a consultant for several years now, with members of the forum too, if you need some help, I can provide you with my portfolio, You can contact me at any moment too! Kind regards Diego
  8. Yes, I'm curious about the process to convert point cloud to mesh, can you give us some pointers?
  9. Right now I have a 2 step process, first, create the planes or rectangles aligned to the point cloud, and then create walls and slabs and so on, I hope there is a better method
  10. Have you tried to reinstall Vectorworks? I've been using almost the same configuration with Vectorworks 2020, Catalina and a Sonnet eGPU with an 8 gig Radeon card without any issue, or try to contact tech support..
  11. When you open the Get Info dialog window for Vectorworks, you have the "prefer eGPU" option checked?
  12. Greetings, I've using point clouds for refurbishments projects , I usually use the Clip cube and I start adding planes (rectangles) to work as Working planes and start modeling from them, Is there a better way to use point clouds for architectural modeling in Vectorworks?
  13. Besides the dimensioning tools that looks wrong in Dark Mode, the new icons are very confortable for eyes, when you work long hours in front of a screen, I think the icons are straightforward to use and there are always space for improvement, but the icons for Dark Mode are between Archicad abstract icons and the ultra cheesy icons of Revit..
  14. Low level means it would be deeply integrated into the Metal API and will be much faster that way
  15. Twinmotion has a web page with a roadmap of updates and the direct link for Vectorworks doesn't appear anywhere https://portal.productboard.com/7pu88c9kpmqtzt8hwg6arujh/tabs/5-in-progress
  16. We've tried GDrive and even Box with any luck, DropBox works better.. I've been using the exact configuration you speak, I've doing cloud syncing for quite some time now with no major issues, if you want I can help with your settings.
  17. The Railing tool have a mode where you can put railings going up in a slope
  18. I've been using DropBox with Project Sharing for over 3 years now with almost no troubles at all, even working in mixed platforms, you only have to be careful to use the correct file protocol SMB or AFP depending on your machines, SMB in mixed Mac/Win environments works better, GDrive is way too slow for updates.
  19. Yes, the Italian and the french version have much better dimensioning tools and much better windows and doors tools, but they are not present in the US version
  20. I would be happy with, at least, stacked walls and a new better stair tool and faster sections and elevations, is pain in the neck waiting for refresh's
  21. Make sure your main monitor is the one connected to the eGPU, I’ve been using an eGPU for almost a year now with great results
  22. Yes, you will loose all the parametric options, Vectorworks don't have the option to create parametric Families, just 2D/3D symbols and PIO objects
  23. Hi, the trim will be always rectangle, there is no way to change the profile, you need to model it separately..
  24. Hi, I need to report the Z height of several slab objects, I'm trying with the ZCoordinate formula in database mode and nothing and when I use the 'Slab'.'Height' formula the results are wrong, I'm doing something wrong?
