  1. I didn't realize that the resource share threads had been archived. But back in that thread I had posted some scripts I use to create groups of cabinets. For those of you who are using these scripts, I've made a tool version. And it's pretty funny. Clearly I don't understand everything that happens under the hood when creating cabinets so this tool sometimes creates FrankenCabinets. My workflow is usually to use this tool to play around with layouts and then ungroup it to get real VW cabinet objects. Changing a parameter on the real objects cures their FrankenCabinet appearance. I don't know if I'll keep working on this. It works just barely well enough at the moment. But I'm open to ideas 🙂. You can see a video demonstration here. If there are ever any updates it's more likely to be current there. Cabby.vso

  3. The answer to all of those is yes. The easiest way is use classes as criteria get the area or perimeter of objects and then multiply by the price. See attached example. For the calculations you're looking for you don't even need to add record formats. But I bet you will once you get this figured out. 🙂 example.vwx
  4. No. You can have multiple symbols for a fixture with different 2D elements. That used to be done more before the 3D part of fixture could articulate. But you can duplicate the symbol for a fixture and make different 2D geometry to match the 3D and save it as a red symbol.
  5. There is an option in the window settings to use a symbol rather than use a totally parametric window. Which means you have to build the symbol. It's not that bad. I usually get the window close, duplicate it, switch to a 3D view, then convert it to a group. Make the changes you need, create a symbol. Then use that symbol in a window object. Sounds way worse than it is :-). Post back if you need more help.
  6. I would just model it. Is it one fixed with a muntin up high and two casements with a fixed transom? Even if the Vectorworks window tool could make the sashes it couldn’t do the sill.
  7. We do this all the time. You can post the vwx or mcd files here. Someone usually does it within an hour. If the files are sensitive you can post them in a PM to me.
  8. I always thought you had to have something for a VAR or CONST declaration. Guess not! PROCEDURE NoFlip; PROCEDURE StopFlipping(h:Handle); BEGIN SetObjectVariableBoolean(h,1029,FALSE); END; BEGIN ForEachObject(StopFlipping,(T=VIEWPORT)); END; RUN (NoFlip);
  9. Let's try this: PROCEDURE NoFlip; VAR h : HANDLE; PROCEDURE StopFlipping(h:Handle); BEGIN SetObjectVariableBoolean(h,1029,FALSE); END; BEGIN ForEachObject(StopFlipping,(T=VIEWPORT)); END; RUN (NoFlip);
  10. New update to the seating chart tool, TheateRow. 1. By default it now uses the @SCParker Seat Spacing Method™. You can still go back to the old way if you need to match an existing seating situation. 2. You can now individually select the seat symbol for each seat in the row. 3. I'm working on a possible covid seating solution. This version lays some of the ground work. It can be used "as is" to plan out possible covid seating scenarios. If I get time to work on it, the user will be able to select a sellable seat and all seats within a specified radius that are not already set to sellable will show as blocked. I hope we're all back in production before I have time to write it 🙂. You can get the tool, a sample file to play with, and a video demonstration here.
  11. With roof objects it's hard to tell without seeing it. When you adjust the height, are you selecting the option to adjust the heights for the whole roof?
  12. That's really good question. If it's possible, I can't figure it out either :-).
  13. There's no difference in snapping behavior between the Mac and PC that I'm aware of. Make sure you have Grid Snap off and Snap to Object on with all the boxes checked. If you double click any of the snapping tools you will get a dialog box for all of them so you can manage the settings.
  14. Welcome to the forum 🙂 Insert a window into the wall. Select the window. Click on Settings… in the OIP. In General: 1). Set the total width and height of the window unit. 2). Set Sash to Custom 3). Click Custom Sash Options… In Custom Sash Options: 1). Set Rows to 1 2). Set Columns to 3 3). Set Mullion depth and width. Use the double arrow buttons at the bottom to select a sash. Then for each sash set the sash operation, muntin, etc. If all the sashes are not going to be equal size, make sure you click "Lock sash configuration" before you change the size of another sash. window example.vwx
