  1. i have been working on a project that had 11 viewports......i set a new camera view on the design layer and made a viewport from the camera on the same sheetlayer but all the other viewports have gone......i think its to do with visibilities but i have not changed anything......helppppppeee
  2. hi yes Artlantis is a separate software.....don't know where you are in the world if my memory serves me well its about £396.00 at the moment plus the tax/vat.....the other software max and cinema 4d is considerably more cash....its just where you see yourself going.....i would get up and running with my suggestion...so you can start to produce work which means you are paying for your wages....which we know employers like! and maybe in your spare time download the other software which i think has a month free trial to see what you think.....I'm afraid it lots of youtubing and just practice....good luck for the future if you need any more help just let me know cheers
  3. I think it depends on where you see yourself in the world of interior design.....do you want to be a designer/ visualizer or drafting technician......or all of these three....... drafting only-Vectorworks visualiser-vectorworks-artlantis or 3d studio max / cinema 4d these programs will give you superb 3d renders........vectorworks artlantis will be easier to pick up https://artlantis.com/gallery/ and finally if you have the time i would go the vectorworks-cinema 4d route this will give you drafting and the renders but with cd4 a higher end render although please take a look at the link to artlantis gallery impressive stuff....cheaper software and 3d model librarys which will integrate into the software I am not saying the render engine inside Vectorworks isn't good...it is.....i do use it for certain projects....but for me there are not enough 3d model libraries that you can import without having to reapply textures and the like I work in event and exhibition design....not a million miles from interiors and i have used the vw/artlantis render for the past 20 years and its done me proud....hope this helps
  4. sorry found it......had it on perspective in Vectorworks preferences.....
  5. have a file open and have set the menu to work in orthogonal/but it keeps reverting back to perspective whilst in the 3d mode....this has never happened before...any ideas thanks
  6. Need a monthly competition on how to model various items.....could be interesting on how different people approach the task.......great forum
  7. All done in vectorworks......use the 3D model to make all my plans and elevations using view ports.......our cnc operator.....will sometimes redraw certain items using the cnc software....when he feels the need......but an exported dwg will usually do the job....HTH
  8. Vectorworks and artlantis....the quickest and easiest workflow method I have found to produce trade show designs by far.....
  9. Interesting....so what was the final program you used to transfer you model file to key shot.....and was it a steep learning kerb for keyshot. Thanks
  10. thanks so why do so many pieces of software allow the SKP files to be imported if the geometry is terrible...(.i have to say I agree but sometimes it gets me out of a hole when I need a 3d model) or is it that so many people are indeed using the software because it is an affordable option?
  11. hi dave thanks for the link i have seen this...really good video (gave me a few ideas to try).....my question was more out of curiosity with skp.....i have never as i mentioned used it to model and most of my work is 3d modelling.....but thanks for your interest
  12. its seems flashy promo videos for SU do indeed sell the product...but I have seen this happen with other programs I use......
  13. i sometimes use no colour but add line edges in open gl ....that works for me to
  14. morning Have never used SketchUp for 3d modelling but have been watching a few tutorials on youtube and it does seem a fantastic piece of kit.....i guess if you know how to use it! I am interested to see how many of you guys integrate the modelling element of SU with VectorWorks and if any of the SU 3d modelling tools you would like to see on the 3d modelling pallette in VectorWorks....if any......many thanks
  15. really need a white model render.....but in open gl which would be great.......guess as jim said build your model without colours and then apply the textures when your happy with the geometry at the end
  16. Kevin Good tip When would you use the multiple extrude tool against lofting or the sweep command thanks
  17. In the end I didn’t take the offer to upgrade to v18 in fact although I have v17 I still use v16....find it very stable.....
  18. ps thank you all so much for your time.....
  19. as suggested by EAlexander thanks so much
  20. using the sweep tool helix.vwx
  21. now for applying the decals !!!!!!
  22. thanks, guys tweaking needed....but not far to go
  23. Thanks....I was wondering if some kind of lofting would work ..even tried the wall tool and tried pulling it to create the offset....I’ll have a look at the spring....
