    You could check in the Nvidia control panel if VW is using the gti or the intergrated graphics card. I have a xps 9560 and so far no big problems with opengl or redraws.

    Forcing VW to use the Nvidia card helped in my case allot.


  2. Hi all,


    I was wonderding if anybody has tips:


    I`m working on a design that can have several different finish.

    In a worksheet I want to calculate what the costs are for each finish

    At the moment I have attached a record to each symbol/product which has a number field for the price. But this is just one price.

    What is the best way of making it possible to attach several finishs that correspond with a different price?


    So product A with a attached record:


    Finish 1 - price 1

    Finish 2 - price 2



    It would be the most convient if I could selected in a worksheet the different finishes with the corresponding prices.

  3. Yesterday I found some tools in VW that I never used before, but came in pretty handy.

    In this case this where the 'drilled hole tool' in the 'fasteners tool set' and the 'geom dim tool' in the annotation tool set.


    Still learning about all the different possibilities in VW!

  4. Hi all,


    I'm working more and more with worksheets so I can skip Excel for my Bill of Materials for my designs.


    My question:


    Is it possible to create a header (above the database header) which gets the Project Name automatically from the project data in the title block manager?

    Is this possible for print data, project date etc. as well?


    Thanks in advance!

    @Bas Vellekoop Thanks for the info, that sounds quite good then for a laptop, it will give me some idea of what to look for regarding hardware specs.


    Off topic: I got the xps 15 a few weeks ago. Since then Dell replaced the screen 3 times and the 4th time i got a complete new XPS (2 times several death pixels, 1 time the aluminum finish was a different color and 'rough', 1 time the webcam was broken)

    So i wouldn`t recommend a Dell at the moment, their seem to be 'some' quality issues.

    The latest (new) laptop has a screen that isn't completely centert in the case/body.

    Beautiful renderings!


    The white linework might not be for everyone, but I think it's really cool and lends a nice sketch quality to the renderings. It also keeps it lighter feeing as opposed to black lines.


    A few nitpicky thoughts if you're looking for suggestions, but nothing too important:

    • The tall curtain in the corner lends a nice soft quality. It seems like there should be some sort or track or something showing that it could be pulled across in front of those doors (unless I'm wrong about it being able to do that).
    • The TV seems too light of a grey. A turned-off TV would be much darker and perhaps include some reflection of the room. (Though I understand not going to dark so it's not a black hole in the rendering).
    • The three pendants hanging over the sink aren't spaced equally which might be intentional but seems odd to my eye.
    • My personal reaction to the white version of the kitchen (third image) is that it's a bit hot / over-exposed.
    • You might experiment with a larger size for Ambient Occlusion. It looks slightly fake in the corners when the walls are white.

    Awesome work!


    Thanks for the feedback!

  7. Looks very nice, like Stephan some tips,


    - You would expect that the back of the chairs stick out above the table top (table to high, chairs to low?)

    - The oven doesn't have any cabinet around it or top? would it be build in like this?

    - The doors of the kitchen look like they are 1 surface, there is no seam between the separate doors.

    - You could give al the cabinets/shelves a (very) little bevel on the sides/corners so that you get al little highlight on the edges.

    - The texure of the walls, table lamp and the bookshelves look like they are the same. The bookcases are probably made of HPL or melamine so give just a little bit of reflection and have a little noise bump so they stick a tiny bit out.

    - It seems that you Ambient Occlusion is turned on. I would turn it down with 50%

    - The table top is very thin,  the plinth of the kitchen very low

    - There are some lighting artifact above and under the paintings.


    This is probably a night scene, but if you would make it a day scene where the sun shines through the windows it could bring the scene to life.

    Then there would be allot of shadows and light spots that could 'guide' your view through the room.


    Where did you get those awesome textured and modeled couches?


    Great job so far!


  8. 1 You could create 1 Render works texture in photoshop with the desired heights/textures and apply. this to the wall.


    2 You could create a wallstyle with components. These components you could give a specific height and texture and only a width of 1mm. In plan you can turn these components off  so the don't mess up your plan.
