  1. But it seems that Twinmotion Direct Link will really happen at some point. Listen to Dr. Biplab Sarkar speaking about it in his 2020 Design Summit presentation (min 13:45). Also the fact that Redshift renderer, recently acquired by Maxon is coming to Vectorworks is very exciting. Listen to Dr. Biplab Sarkar at min 13:30. Also check out this article that briefly mentions it: https://gfxspeak.com/2020/05/07/maxon-actually-several/ I'm also very much thinking of saying goodbye to Apple and making the move to Windows. Hardware is just much less expensive and the ability to be able to work with Nvidia RTX graphics cards and AMD's Thread Ripper CPUs just leaves Apple hardware performance very far behind. Just go to Puget Systems and try configuring your custom PC, by paying much less you get much greater performance. I'll wait until the June 22 Developers conference and hopefully a new iMac or iMac Pro comes out and that real time raytracing is in some way brought to the Mac. But neither of that is likely to happen and that's when I shall definitely wave goodbye to Apple. I hoped that today some new graphic cards where to be announced on GTC 2020 but sadly that did not occur but Nvidia's Omniverse development is amazing.
  2. Totally agree, I just requested the live link feature.
  3. This is incredible. I'm learning Unreal Engine at the moment and knowing that these new technologies will come soon in the future keeps me very motivated.
  4. Many thanks for you reply @Pat Stanford. I can find other ways to solve the issue I'm having. Actually it's not really a problem, I just thought there was a quick and easy way. There is absolutely no need for anyone to help me and spend so much time creating the script!
  5. Many thanks for your answer. Now I can stop trying.
  6. I'd like the count values of a database to be shown in a text field. For example, I'd like a text field to show the cell value of row 2.7 and column D from the database.
  7. @Pat Stanford how can one read a value from a database and get that value into a Text field?
  8. Many many thanks @Pat Stanford it works great.
  9. Hi, Establishing criteria for databases is easy: Database header cell: =CompAreaByClass('Class-1') using the previous function and establishing criteria I manage to show results only form a particular layer. What I can't do is the following, I want in a normal worksheet cell to get the area of my components but specify from which layer. I know I have to use this function: Spreadsheet cell: =CompAreaByClass(t=wall,'Class-1') What do I need to add to the function above to specify the search in a particular layer? Thanks in advance, Martín
  10. @markdd@Amorphous - Julian@Pat Stanford@mgries My apologies for replying so late! I've had a busy week.
  11. My pleasure. Glad to see the support this wishlist has raised. I hope we can still get plenty more votes!
  12. @Amorphous - Julian I think this is a very good ideas as of to how the harmony between symbols and record formats could be improved. I'm glad you find this issue important and the examples you give of the trouble this causes in your office are very interesting.
  13. @markdd Yes, I can use the custom selection or magic wand tools for this but as @Amorphous - Julian has explained, it would be much better if there would be an option to make things more automated and therefore less error prone. Also many times one uses symbols in order to represent the exact same geometry or object, it's usually the case that most of the data attached to a symbol is the same for all symbols.
  14. Hi, I think the way that record formats work with symbols doesn't make sense. Or at least there should be a way to link a record to a symbol and that one can choose that the value always stays the same between all symbols (similar to the styles feature first presented with windows and doors). I give an example that illustrates the problem: One places the symbol of a chair in a document, then creates a record that contains price information and attaches the record to a symbol. One is happy and has just created a symbol with a record attached to it. Then one decides to change the price of the chair... One selects the symbol of the chair and changes the price but it only changes the price for that instance. There should be a way to change the price for all symbols that have that record attached. For now, what I prefer doing is attaching the price record to a group (inside the symbol of the chair) that contains all the geometry of the chair inside the chair's symbol. That way when I change the price and the record is changed in all symbols. The issue with this is that one can see the data only when inside the symbol and selecting the group. So once again, symbols should have the option of changing the record attached to them and this changed value should be reflected on all symbols. I'd like to know what people think of enhancing the way records and symbols work this way. So please comment below!!
