  1. When i am trying to create a new renderworks style in the resource folder the spinning ball appears and vectorworks freezes for about a minute. Anyone else getting this behauviour?
  2. yes. i did it inside the Data Manager. It´s the first project that our office has to use that BIM IFC thing .-) volume works for itself, but area seems to be something that does not calculate the ground surface for extruded geometry. but i did that simply also in the data manger by multiplying x and y values. not the best if the geometry is not rectangular, but works for the moment. Base Quantities is just an IFC entity that transports basic information for elements like area, volume, netto and gross.
  3. Thanks Pat. I´ll take a look if i can attach that somewhere to an ifc export!
  4. is there any way to get informations for base quantities when geometry is not an intelligent object? this works well for walls, slabs and so on. but how can i do this for free modeled objects like extrudes ?
  5. hello, we are getting into the usage of a custom pset to have our own ifc definitions. we are currently working on a new exhibition for a large museum and none of the standard ifc entries fit to the clients needs. so i have created a new database and to keep it simple for our teammembers, i created some entries as pop-up menues with predefined namings. when i link the database as a custom pset to an ifcproxy i can select the database and the databasefieldnames are visible in the OIP but all pop-up entries do not appear. boolean entries in the database appear correct in the OIP... tested in vw2021 and vw2022. any idea what could cause this? thanks for any help.
  6. hm - i have build 622317 - and there it doesn´t crash anymore. this is sp2 of vectorworks 2022 in vectorworks 2021 - sp5 - it still crashes immediately
  7. i think it was exactly what you mentioned. but i shut down vectorworks an saw the memory cleaned up again. but i haven´t tested this inn the last weeks with the sp1 and sp1.1 update. 2022 is still too slow in many operations than it´s worth to work with it seriously...
  8. i posted something similar to this issue i still wonder which renderengine is the more realistic one compared to the IES data...
  9. I´ll bring this up again... Bug still present in SP1 of Vectorworks 2022 Why doesn´t anybody from the VW team react to such an easy to replicate bug?
  10. but this seems to be related to windows, or more specific to special system versions i tested the file on my macbookpro, os 11.6, and there are no issues with that...
  11. maybe that´s something regarding vw not to release the vram of gpu´s actually. i have posted something similar i have come over when using redshift as renderstyle.
  12. hm. after asking is there something downloaded? did you check if your resource folder has got full rw access? otherwise - what happens if you place the original folderstructure again there without any content?
  13. did you move or copy the library to the external ssd? when you moved it, did you try to place an alias to the workgroup folder to point there? maybe vw isn´t able to recognize that the original place is moved somewhere else...
  14. guess it´s only you. i have 2020, 21 and 22 installed and the resources update frequently but not at every start of vw. did you try to move one of your folders inside users-library-application support and then restart vw? maybe it depends to that or some broken prefs... there are also deeper prefs kept in root-library-preferences-vectorworksxxxx.plist delete this and try again. that solved some issues we had with some other phenomenons.
  15. and sad to mention that this bug is still available in vw2022...
  16. It seems to me, that Redshift is not releasing the gpu memory after finishing a render. As a result textures are not rendered. An advantage, compared to other apps, it uses multiple gpu´s 😉 Both Radeon RX are external GPU´s. See the two screenshots.
  17. I have attached a custom database, that uses pop-up entries to define special needs for BIM workflow. When i attach the database to an IFCProxy as a custom pset, the pop-up fields do not appear anymore. They are normal textfields. Something i am doing wrong or a known issue? See the screenshots. The first one is the edit window in the database itself. The second when it´s selected in the OIP to edit the IFC entries.
  18. Hi Dave, i have attached the file to my post. thx for having a look. IES_in_VW_bjoerka_v2022.zip
  19. i got a code inside the serviceselect portal. but that is worth for 6 month... not perpetual
  20. It seems that the progress bar is not working correct. During the first denoising phase the progress bar works During the second denoising phase too. But at the end the progress bar turns black again and the rendering continues until the final result without showing a progress bar.
  21. I have experienced that some ies files show up completely different in Redshift in comparison to Custom Renderworks. Is that a known problem? See the attached renderings.
  22. this is correct. but the error appears when you open a document prior to vw2022. vw doesn´t recognize that in the older document unified view wasn´t enabled. it´s a workaround but no solution...
  23. the last years it was the second week in september 🙂
  24. this happens to me in vw2021 sp4 open a blank document insert a light deselect the light in the drawing right click the light in the visualization panel and choose edit pull the slider for brightness click the "ok" or "cancel" button vw crashes every time can someone confirm this?
