    Rendering isues.

    All I can think of is that you may have the class set to say 20% opacity on your class or have you a texture on your class set to a Fresnel option

    How to Move Walls.

    If it's not to far I use the nudge command for say short distances for as single wall that's adjoining another wall

    Rendering in Vectorworks

    Should be loads of textures in the vectorworks library sade. There's a great video on you tube from vectorworks called rendering for success....you will find that there's a steep learning curb to get things looking really realistic.....i find the lighting the hardest.....i seem to have got this right after many hours of practice and many hours of test renders....i have kept this file as a template so I can tweak the look as appropriate......oh sorry the concrete have a look on Google for seamless concrete materials....again there's loads for free.....wall rendering settings on classes are really good you can apply different materials on both sides of the walls and even the middle.... Try and get to grips with making your own textures to..... Loads of info on you tube and the vectorworks site.....good luck

    Custom shaped stair

    As a 3d guy I would model this as a straight set of stairs and use the curve deform tool

    exporting a textures from the resourse file

    thanks again.....really useful and there are some great textures with the vectorworks libraries that i can use in other situations ....and i can always make a bump map in photoshop for the extraction cheers

    exporting a textures from the resourse file

    that works thanks...i was hoping it would have extracted the image with the bump map.....but i think that's wishful thinking....also i only think the extract works when the material has been made from an image source and not just a colour.....im looking for a nice textured white laminate that i had made from a colour and then given the image some noise.....not the end of the world thanks again
