  1. I had a go at this but I couldn't make it work. The wall refused to drop one end like it is supposed to. I tried copying the wall and site model into a brand-new file, pasting it right in the middle of the design area. The wall still refused to edit the way that I wanted. I also tried editing the wall style, tried it with an styled wall, nothing worked.
  2. There are two things I can think of, the first is an empty viewport, and the other one would be a referenced DXF file or something like that. When you reference a DXF file it creates a viewport type object. Can you select it?
  3. here are a couple of fences I made to try out the fence. the corrugated metal is common on older houses where I live. the small post on was a test for a client. I Think this is extremely powerful and flexible. As Jon says, if you want to make a complete panel, you can model it in 3-D and save it as a symbol. You can't see it in these views but I did create custom post profiles and custom rail profiles. here
  4. are you using a standard Vectorworks workspace? this is my workspace:
  5. I assume you have used the text tool, or double click on the text with the selection tool?
  6. Well that's weird. I opened up your file, checked the settings, then recreated from source data and when I exit, I see the contours. When I struggle with a site model, one of things I usually do to recreate from source data, and seems to get rid of some of my problems and it gives Vectorworks a chance to recreate everything from scratch. (using Vectorworks 2024)
  7. this is what I found too. Flip only changes it from inside to outside. If you change the second leaf to the correct width for the first leaf, then it works. So basically you swap the second leaf for the main leaf this might help:
  8. You need to check the settings to make sure you are capturing all of the contours that you need.
  9. I used to use a small Wacom tablet. it was good. I used to get annoyed finding the pen after typing, or else I’d have to hold onto the pen while typing... These days I prefer using my mouse, with the speed of the mouse turned down. this gives me the control that I need and it do not get a sore wrist after hours on the computer.
  10. I cannot change the border to no fill. You can assign a hatch, and you can make the hatch with no background fill, but you still get a solid colour on the border. I tried to use a class to control the border colour, that works, but you can't change the opacity, you end up with a solid colour.
  11. You might want to check the datum of the hardscape. I often set the datum to the underside of the top component so that it is above the site. I wonder if you have Cut Site Model option checked.
  12. Hi Tom, i see there this question was poseted in two places, i gave a different answer
