    Cut out logos

    Sorry unless some part of the logo is in a font that you have then you could type the letters and convert text to polyline....ungroup and then extrude and resize the letters to the desired size......of course you may have to trace around the logo itself.....if you have the logo as an illustrator file in outlines you could export the logo as a dwg/dxf and then import into vectorworks. Hope this helps. Phil

    Cut out logos

    Best way is to import the logo as an image and trace around .......you can then extrude give it textures and for the cnc export as dwg/ dxf.....any problem let me have the logo and I’ll sort it out for you ......ps exhibition designer 46 years.

    probably a better way to do this......upgrade to v19 !!!!!!!!

    i think you may have to create a shape the same shape as the symbol but extrude it and then place it above the height of the symbol on a different class so you can turn it of when rendering the symbol in plan view in say final renderworks this seems to work a bit fiddly......

    one last question sorry rob....created a viewport in plan view using the 2d/3d/symbol and can't get to get a render with just the 2d outlines of the symbol in hidden line or final renderworks, is this something that cant be achieved.......thanks

    just a question when you have the hybrid symbol in plan view does it save on the screen refresh....or doesn't it make much difference thanks again and thanks mark

    Cinema 4d

    I have been offered a job that’s been modelled and rendered in c4d I have v2017 can I bring the model in from a cd4 file I can see I can bring in the textures but will vw import the graphic files that have been placed as decals on the cd4 model......don’t want to turn the job down but will it mean re-modelling the job inside vw and applying the c4d textures from the file the client is sending over......any help or advice will be appreciated. Thanks
