  1. Hello, I have become pretty well versed over the years on VW modelling, but one thing I haven't conquered yet is textures for OpenGL rendering. I must be missing something because I am surprised at the lack of "modern" textures for architectural exterior surfaces. I tried looking under the service select libraries and there is nothing useful there either. It would be preferable to find a resource than to build my own. Sketchup and other rendering software seem to have an unlimited database of objects and textures to access. Can anyone tell me where I can find a similar resource for VW? Does this forum have a sharing section I don't know about? I am specifically looking for shou sugi ban (charred cedar siding) textures as well as panel textures (Swiss pearl) and standing seam metal roofing textures. Thanks for your help! Pamela
  2. You will see that it works for the adjacent wall. I haven't selected the object....just rolled over it. Neither rolling over or selecting the object highlights for the extrusion.
  3. Hello All, Just as the title states: my Selection tool is not highlighting objects despite their information showing in the object info palette. This only happens in this file. I have checked all of the settings I can find, but just can't figure this one out. Thanks for you help. Photo attached (although all you will see is my arrow on the long grass slab and the extrude object information shown in the info palette, but no orange box around the extrusion). Very frustrating! Thank you!
  4. So that I can turn them off and focus on only one type of annotation at a time.
  5. I JUST realized that as I started monkeying around with it. Nothing like a stupid question! Thanks Tamsin!
  6. Is there a way to place different types of annotations on their own class/layer/visibility within the sheet viewport? ie. wall tags on a layer, window tags on a layer, door tags on a layer, dimensions on a layer, notes on a layer, room labels on a layer...etc I'm about to go back to annotating everything on the design layer within different classes in order to keep better track of each type. It just gets too crowded to catch mistakes/omissions/changes once you have a full set of working drawings going. I've got a client that keeps changing their mind and I know I must be missing some changes in the annotations. I can't believe I have to ask this. We were arguing about using the viewport annotations versus annotating right on the design layer when I worked in an office back in 2005! Please tell me I've just missed a setting! Thanks!
  7. Ah, sorry, I figured this misunderstanding would happen. I'm not talking about creating a 3D model from lines (like a site model for instance). I'm talking about using the 3D toolbox set called "Create Contours". It allows you to cut a 3D object into slices. Then you can manipulate those slices further.
  8. Hello! This is my first time posting. I would like to know if there is a non linear way to create contours? I would to cut a set of contours at approx. 4' intervals into a 3D extrusion but I would like those contours to radiate from one point. I've attached a screenshot. Thanks!
