  2. Hi, I have been battling for a week with what seems like a bug or some sort, I have emailed file to VW support, but its slow going and the "bug" isn't occurring for them when the file has been tested.  Basically, working away on a model and the system keeps giving me the "wheel of death" every time I try edit the walls I have built. I have had to perform various complex work arounds in order to get a set of build drawings out. I am now trying to work out what is going on.

     

    I have recreated new file templates, new wall tools pre sets and each time the file freezes and I have to force quite, over the last week I have reinstalled OS (On latest) reinstalled VW (on latest) at least twice and run the following test as requested from support, none of them had an effect.

     

    Can someone please guide me through what I can do to clear out my system..... I have looked but so many options re free software etc .... would be so grateful. In anticipation Thanks 

     

    Please try changing your navigation graphics:
    Tools > Options > Vectorworks Preferences > Display > change the Navigation Graphics to Good Performance and Compatibility.

    If this doesn't help then please try resetting your user folder:
    Close Vectorworks > Finder > Go > hold Alt/Option and click Library > Application Support > Vectorworks > rename 2019 to 2019old > open Vectorworks and see if this has resolved the issue.
     

    Please try running the repair tool:
    Close Vectorworks > Finder > Applications > Vectorworks 2019 > run Vectorworks 2019 Updater > let it update if needed > Advanced Options > Repair.

  3. Hi, really appreciate some help, having all sorts of issues for last 24hrs with VW 19 on OS 10.14.3 

    I have reinstalled OS and software, and limping along to try and get a set of working drawings out. It seems that every time I touch a wall, even to delete it the 'wheel of death" appears  and I have to force quit. 

    Can some PLESE advise what I need to do is it delete preferences or cache out something?? thanks 

     

  4. I can open files in cd4 and work on them, these are the ones I created before the system hiccup I had on Saturday... which lead me to install Sierra, which then lead me to reinstall C4d as it stopped working (it did work for a brief period after OS upgrade) I've just managed to finish job using the C4D files already export prior to OS change, with out doing any VW updates of the model all my modelling is done in VW at the mo. Now I need to start a new job and use the workflow as it should be VW - c4d but can't get them to talk to each other..... am I making sense?

  5.  

    Been working on VW for 20years and recently moved over to VW17 and exporting to Cinema 4d17.I work on a Mac.  Export function was working fine. After major hiccup this wkd i update OS (possible the worse idea ever) I then had to reload C4D as it would't work. Got it working now with the existing c4d files I created. But now I can't get the send to C4d export function to work, on a new file it asks to locate the C4D app, which I do then the dialog box won't click away.

    tried all versions with C4d open and closed and with old files that are working in c4d but there is no update function. Tried also using export to c4d, but C4d doesn't recognise the file type..... whats going on !!!

     

    Really in the dark as on a massive learning curve getting my head around C4d.... Please please help can find nothing on inter web.

     

    Cheers Vic

  7. Hi there,

     

    I have recently invested in a new iMac, new software etc. I was working on VW2010 and finally upgraded earlier this year to VW2016 to my horror I can not save down to VW2010, which isn't an issue except I rendering Atlantis 3. I am also trying to move my rendering to Cinema 4d, but as work gets in the way of learning struggling to do so. 

     

    So the situation is I am stuck  I can not model in VW2016 as I can not export to Art3 directly as its no longer supported, or even save to the VW file down to  VW2010 so I can export to Art 3 from there.

     

    Can anyone tell me how I can save from VW2016 to 2010!!! 

     

    Most gratefully and humbly

     

    Vic

     

  8. Right I am going to answer my own question here!

    Basically some one off the Art forum kindly suggested I reduce the export conversion rate from very high to high, did it, did the trick... Job done!!

    I will test to see how exporting on a low rate will effect modelling

    There is always a simple answer, just need to stop flapping!!

    Thanks for help :-)

  9. thanks Mike

    Yes it is solid in VW and "filled"

    Thanks for alternative way that is easier then subtract solid and punching the curves and does work.

    But I just can't understand why this issue is there in the first place, maybe its just my system some weird bug, it doesn't happen on the normal rectangle shape when extruded so its to do with the curves.

    Thanks again

  10. Hi There

    I have worked on VW for 15 years (minicad to start with) But for many months now I am baffled with what is a very simple modelling issue.

    Basically If I want to create a rectangle with curved corners, I normal drawing rectangle with the tool "rounded rectangle tool" then extrude. Once I import this to Art it should be solid, however, its isn't just an outline.

    I have got round this issue by producing the same shape by "subtracting solids", but it is a long way round and a time wasting modelling process. Prior to VW2010 I never had this issue I would very much appreciate help as it slows done my work flow massively...anyone else had this experience?

    Please help, thanks
