  1. Mi Mark. I can highly recommend Scan computers in Horwich. I am now on my third custom system from their '3XS' range. Great customer service and rock solid performance from their overclocking so far.
  2. Attached file contains Prolyte H30V circle sections in 1/2/3/4/5/6/7m radius They all have the correct cross section and Truss Record but do not have weights as this information is not available to me. I can't vouch for their accuracy! hope they are useful to some folks H30V_-_Circles.vwx
  3. So even after a lot of fiddling around I could not get it to work UNLESS I set up the PIO as 'Insertion point is centre point'. With this checked they line up almost perfectly. Original DWG attached X30D-CIRKEL.dwg
  4. Hi Rob. thanks for having a look. That's what I figured was the case but it wasn't obvious why, draw a square from point to point and the seem to be within a mm of the corners The 3D geometry in the symbols is a straight copy and paste from the Prolyte DWGs if that is any help. I can also send you the files tomorrow
  5. Thanks Rob I don't have weights for the units yet unfortunately and there is no VW cross section profile for Prolyte X30 truss so they won't be fully Braceworks compatible I am having trouble with a couple of them and wonder if anyone can help. In the attached file the sections do not quite join up properly and for the life of me I cannot work out why! The rest of them seem to be ok X30D_R200_Test.vwx
  6. @Andy Broomell That's an excellent texture. Would you mind sharing? I can see with a little bit of work in photoshop how that could be worked in to a b/alpha shader that with the addition of a colour could be used to make various colour skirts
  7. We've just bought a load of Prolyte truss circles and I am beginning the process of converting the DWGs into truss PIOs. Before I go the whole hog and share the results up here for the greater good.....could anyone take a look at the attached and see if there are any obvious mistake? Prolyte_Test_Circle.vwx
  8. Video screen PIO and braceworks compatibility is coming in SP2 apparently
  9. In the new seating tool (a great improvement on the last), the dimensions of the chair symbol no longer seem to appear? Previously you'd get a W x D x H indication of the selected symbol which was extremely useful when working via seating densities. It meant you could work out your row/seat spacing to hit 2 per SqM which I found to be a brilliant method. Am i missing it or has it gone? If so please please please can we have it back
  10. This isn't the only agonisingly slow dialogue to open. If I edit attributes of a class the window can take 20+ seconds to populate, this is the case for anything which involves loading previews of content from the resource manager. This ends up adding what seems like hours to workflow which should be a simple click through
  11. On the AMD machine: Prerender - 00:28 Indirect Lighting - 19:20 Render complete - 2:05:54 On the Intel machine: Prerender - 00:23 Indirect Lighting - 35:56 Render complete - 3:25:25
  12. I thought I'd render your test file on both my machines to satisfy my curiosity. I think if you want people to do a participatory test you might have to simplify your test file. I'm 40 minutes in on a machine with one of the fastest processors on the market and less than an 8th of the way through rendering......
  13. Quicker would be to look at the cinebench scores for your options here: https://us.rebusfarm.net/en/tempbench?view=benchmark I use two machines both running VW2018: Windows 10/AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X 3.33GHZ/32GB RAM - Cinerender R15 Score 2908 but slower at single thread tasks Windows 10/Intel Core i7-7800X Overclocked to 4.5GHz/32GB RAM - Cinerender R15 Score 1453 but noticeably quicker on single thread tasks
  14. Your little truss might not attach because the geometry is not exactly lined up, copy and paste the value for the position from one to the other for the axis parallel to the truss, even this may not work, if so you might need to manually align the truss loci. Also it doesn't seem to like 'joining' trusses of different cross sections sometimes.
  15. The LED screen tool is not compatible with braceworks in similar fashion to the line array tool. With the line array tool you can create your array then create a symbol from that array which can be used to replace the default point load symbol in braceworks. This DOES NOT work for distributed loads so the only LED screen workaround is to add a load separately from the screen itself. VW are aware of this, I'd expect it to be a feature of the non beta release when it comes......
