  1. Heya Team, I am trying to create a layer filled with symbol insert wrappers. I have got it working but it always inserts the symbol on the same layer the wrapper is on, where do I place the command to tell the wrapper which layer to send that symbol to? Thanks in Advance!
  2. @EAlexander, do you find that there is an increase in the performance of the drawing once you've converted it? Is that the reason you choose to convert?
  3. Heya Gang, I work in event design and i have a question for the think tank. If i have created a rather complex object with fillets, solid additions and subtractions, maybe some sweeps etc. and I then convert that into a symbol. Am I better off leaving it as a solid addition, or once I'm happy with it should I convert that to a generic solid? I'm thinking about the drag it has on working with the drawing, is there a simple better option her for performance?
  4. Hi @JRA-Vectorworks-CAD, I agree completely. The SketchUP direct link looks to be very useful and would help the two work together without clunky workarounds. Eagerly awaiting news of this links progress.
  5. Awesome, found it. What a life saver. Thanks so much @Hans-Olav
  6. @Hans-Olav How are you toggling between changing a single item or everything of a texture at once?
  7. @JRA-Vectorworks-CAD Thank you very much for sharing that link, a wonderful explanation of your process.
  8. What's everyone's workflow for exporting FBX into twin motion as far as breaking up similar textures so they aren't all changed simultaneously? We are just beginning our journey with Twinmotion and we're finding that the biggest hurdle in the workflow. Thanks in advance!
  9. This looks very promising, this is something that has been required for quite some time. Good work team!
  10. Pictures Attached. It seems that its only when joined to the walls either side and has a door in it. No join, ok, no doors or windows, ok. hmmm. Anyone know how to fix this?
  11. I am now having the same problem in 2019. I have a small round wall, I have added doors and windows and now in top/plan it appears as a large circle the diameter of the round wall. How do I fix this without deleting the wall? Edit: It seems to only occur once I attach my rounded wall to the other walls around it, if I move the wall out the circle disappears, but using wall join makes it come back.
  12. Heya Team, We are having a bit of a conundrum and I suspect someone here will have a nice simple workflow to help solve this. We have an in-house venue at Sydney Opera House and it is a venue that does corporate breakfasts, weddings, small conferences, graduations, everything. Currently, we have a template file with a few base setups that we start each new client setup from and we save it into the job folder for each job. We would like to create efficiencies where we are not drawing the same (almost the same) setups over and over and are trying not to have 300 layers with every permutation of setups because it will always be bespoke. Has anyone worked in a similar fashion and could suggest a way to have this work with taking the least amount of time to draw each setup, and perhaps manage previous setups well? Id like to hear from anyone who might be bale to help. Thanks so much!
  13. Heya @mike m oz Perhaps Im not understanding this. Ive just had another go, Im looking at the sheet I would like to export and Ive selected this particular sheet in the export dialogue. My original VWX file is 850Mb and the DWG export is 159Mb. I would have thought if I am only exporting 1 sheet and Ive told it to export viewports as 2D graphics in model space I would only be spitting ot lines, which would make a much smaller file. Is this right? Thanks in advance.
  14. No, we were exporting the entire drawing. I will have a crack at doing it that way right now. Thanks so much!
  15. Heya Team, We are working with a venue that demands we send them all of our plans before we can work in their building. They only run AutoCAD and they are saying they have real trouble importing our DWG exports due to the fact that we draw with incredible detail. We will often have 500+Mb drawings that we are exporting and they really only require 2D information to tick their box. Is there a simpler way to do this? Are there export settings I should tweak, or any way of exporting 2D information only? We are really at a loss, we shouldn't sacrifice our quality for just one venue, but we need to be able to help them out. Thanks so much!
