  1. I was hoping for a option in Multiple View Panes menu. Maybe it can be a wish item
  2. It is not possible that all views 'follow' you into groups, solid aditions, subtractions etc? Or do you have to 'go in' at every view separately?
  3. It is probally Renderworks with artistic lines
  4. What I do for my bill of materials is sort of the same: counting symbols with an attached record. In the record is the info for material, price, size, colour etc. Yesterday I stumbled upon the Detail Bubble Tool. Is that better then a worksheet that counts symbols?
  5. @jimw that would be great!
  6. @JimW Do you have a idea what the best workflow for this would be ?
  7. Sort of a newbie question after all these years working in VW What is the best way to keep track of changes in drawings in generally and specifically for furniture design? Like when you added an extra screw or something relatively small? I looked into the issue manager and the revision data. issue manager: works globally between all sheets, that's great. But editing/removing the info is on sheet by sheet basis if I`m correct? revision block: works only on 1 sheets and is not shown on other sheets if I`m correct? And is there a way to place something like a revision cloud with a connection to the revision block or issue manager. Sort of like the detail viewport so it has the revision number / issue number attached and shown and is editable and removeable when you click on it?
  8. +1 Tiles are so much easier to work with. @JimWare tiles more memory intensive and is that the reason that it is not introduced from the start?
  9. I don't trust the deform tool. In this kind of cases I use the nurbs tools. You can reproduce this and make minor changes to the design without starting from scratch and ending up with a generic solid. Not near a pc so I hope you can follow this: - draw several 3d loci that follow the pitch line and the circular path - draw a nurbs curve through the loci - duplicate the nurbs curve and move into position in the z-axes - loft 2 the nurbs curves - shell the nurbs curves 18mm
  10. Thanks for the help guys, really helpful! I forgot that the database is a two way street. Copy pasting text is a relatively easy, instead of going through several different layers 'replacing' symbols.
  11. I`m trying to create a bill of materials for a table design. The idea was to create a worksheet to count all the symbols in the design (every part of the table is a symbol) and add a column to type a description for every symbol. But this doesnt seem to be possible. Is this correct? I want to add text in the blue part. If this is not possible: Probably attaching record is the way to go. Only me is told that i have to 'reload/replace' all the symbols on al the design layers to give it the record/info I attached to the symbol. Is there a way to attach the record to symbol and 'send' the information in it to all exciting symbols without replacing them? Thanks!
  12. +100 Agree completely! I use the 3d power pack almost at a daily basis. Subdivision tool is very cool, but not for precision work. I see it more as a tool for sketching.
  13. @JimW More! More! More!
  14. Shell both sides would be great!
