  1. Rugged Ball & Peter I have a hard copy of the VW8.5 instructions as to how to set up a simple House Model, I guess this no longer exists on the website. If you email me off forum at upj1@aol.com with your address I can mail you the instructions. Fred
  2. My question was offsetting walls with a command or menu tool similar to the offset tool I now use to offset lines. Again, vectordepot has this tool for downloading.
  3. Robert, Over at vectordepot someone has a tool available that will offset a wall object similar to offseting lines. I was wondering if this sort of thing found its way into the standard vwa package. If it did not may I suggest such a feature as a wish list item.
  4. Feeling a little out of the loop here...what and where is the"BIM+Vectorworks White Paper"??
  5. I was just wondering if the current version of VWA has a tool to offset walls?
  6. perhaps this is old news, but if would be nice if when the wall tool is used for exterior walls such as brick veneer or masnory the elevation and model views would actually show the materials similar to Revit.
  7. I also use the Architects Font Pack (Mr Hand) and ordered both the true type and postscript versions. If you are using the postscript versions there should not be a problem.
  8. I use "Mr Hand" and "Heavy Hand", which are part of the Architect's Font Pack. Both true type and postscript versions are included. I think you can find them at ObjectsOnline.com there is also a reference to them at the VW website, third-party add on products, I think. By the way, I also use a true type Graphite without having any problems. HTH
  9. This is sort of related, when I print from 8.5 on a G3 with carbon lib 1.6 to one of my old stylewriter 1200 or 2500 the same thing happens to vertical dimensions. Using the HP 952 all is well. Perhaps the DJ100 is not optimized for carban lib 1.6??
  10. I noticed (in your profile) that you are in Australia... you might consider contacting Julian carr who has developed some excellent add-ons for VW which may give you some of the features you want. Just a thought. Fred
  11. I have always felt that text should also be "auto-classing"... without any extra scriptwork... any other support for this feature??
  12. I did not see anything anywhere regarding VW 10's ability to import a pdf image.. If this does not currently exist can it be a "wish list" item?
  13. OK, I'm on a mac G3 running OS9.x & HP330, with no plans to upgrade to OSX in the near future. I'm thinking of upgrading to VWA10 and my plotter driver to Microspot Graphic Pack 5.1.2. My total cost is would be around $875...not chump change. Can someone tell me if I will have ANY problems PLOTTING before I take this plunge?? All advice, so far, has been GO FOR IT!!
  14. Some time ago I downloaded a script which takes the model and generates the four building elevations on a separate layer - linked to the model. This script is nolonger available and I have no idea who wrote it. I tried to e-mail it to VectorDepot but it woiuld not go for some reason. I will try and post it there again.
  15. I know... its the going back and forth that I don't like. The dimension class works automatically and a similar thing for text would be very gratefully received.
  16. Maybe this has been already done but I was wondering why Text does not "autoclass". It seems to me that this would be a natural feature.
  17. Herman, Need more info... Mac or PC? If Mac, what system?
  18. I think it would be nice if the Layers Window could be incorporated into some sort of "floating" pallet. I know it pulls down and takes a click to change layers but to do more you must open the layers window, ditto classes. Is a floating platted for each a reasonable direction?
  19. Just wondering what kind of performance I can expect using vwa10 under OS9.x.. are there any features I would lose...how does the interface appear onscreen. I want to upgrade vwa but OSX has no great appeal for me at the moment.
  20. Vik, I have inquired about this myself...the answer seems to be that if you are using OS9.x and MacPlot Pro you will have to upgrade to the latest version of MacPlot Raste to plot a carbon application (VW 9.5 and up. If you are using OS10x you will need the Microspot X-rip driver. There is a discount cost for upgrades and using VW, but the discount is not much. HTH, Fred
  21. Thanks Katie, as usual you have answered my question. I intend to upgrade as soon as possible.
