    Fast Flat v0.9.1

    Glad you like it. Yes, that would be very possible. I’ll add it to the list for the next time I work on it.

    Fast Flat v0.9.1

    Thanks everyone for your comments and suggestions. This is it for a while for this tool. Still not to v 1.0 😋. So this is v 0.9.1… But I have actual work to do. And I've started working on the actual tool that I built this tool so I could learn how to build tools. That tool will actually be useful! Release notes: 1. Added braces 2. Added vertical ribs w/ separate controls for vertical and horizontal rib sizing. 3. The @C. Andrew Dunning bug is still there. 4. The blank ID Bug is still there. 5. Did not add corner blocks & keystones. I'm attaching a file for 2017 - 2019 to include the useful worksheet. To install: Go to Vectorworks > Preferences. Click on the User Folders Tab. Mac users will have a button that says "Reveal in Finder". Windows users will have a button that says something like "Reveal in Explorer"(?). That will take you to a folder with the year of the version you are currently using. Inside that folder will be a folder called "Plug-ins". Put the attached .vso file in the Plug-ins folder. Then you need to add the tool to your workspace. @Jim W explains it here. Fast Flat.vso Fast Flat 0_9_1 v2017.vwx Fast Flat 0_9_1 v2018.vwx Fast Flat 0_9_1.vwx

    Parametric theater flat?

    Has anyone created a parametric theater flat object? Seems like something @C. Andrew Dunning might have done while waiting for a plane to board.

    architect or designer?

    Welcome to the forum. For interior design and product design you won't miss anything in Spotlight or Landmark. The stock architect workspace is similar to the stock designer workspace. Rendering is exactly the same.

    Editing text lag

    I know it's possible. I've never done it.

    2017 isn't made to run on Mojave. If you are running Mojave, that's probably what's going on.

    Walkthrough bug on second monitor?

    It's been disabled since I bought the computer 🙂
  10. Anyone else seeing a bug using Walkthrough in 2019. I'm using a 2017 MBP 15" running 10.12.6. When using the walkthrough tool in gamer mode with two monitors and the drawing window on the second monitor the mouse click registers as being on the primary laptop monitor. It works as expected if I switch the drawing screen to the laptop monitor.

    What version of VW? What computer? What OS?

    Fast Flat v0.9.1

    0.9.3. 🤓 Fixed the ID bug. Came to me while drawing. What if an empty field in the OIP doesn't return chr(13). What if it just returns null. So when you create text with that variable that reports null and then tempHandle := LNewObj; it doesn't grab an empty text object - there is no text object. It grabs the last object. In this case the last rib. And it rotates and moves that rib instead of the nonexistent text object. Oy. I'm not sure if any of that is true, but it's they way I'm choosing to understand it. And it works. Good enough. Fast Flat.vso

    Fast Flat v0.9.1

    Just figured it out. I'll post a new version with the ID fix tonight.

    Fast Flat v0.9.1

    I wish I knew what was causing it. I need some more plane flights to figure it out :-). If I can't figure it out, I guess I could always put a checkbox to turn the ID on and off. Until then, if you don't have any ribs, i.e. building a jack only, you can set the ID to nothing. Or you can set the ID class to invisible and all the IDs go away.

    Fast Flat v0.9.1

    Peter Your 0 trick works to create just a jack. So you can set the cover depth to 0, the framing depth to 0, and the flat ID to nothing. Rib option to None. Draw one jack. You've got nothing but a brace!

    Table Cloth Colors

    The color for the table cloth is controlled by the class Furnishing-Table Cloth. Change the color for that class and all the table cloths will change. If you want to have different multiple colors in the same drawing, then you can go to the resource manager and duplicate the symbols Event Table - 72 Round and Event Table 72 and Chairs. Edit the new table symbol and change the color of the table cloth. Edit the new table and chairs symbol to use the new table.

    Fast Flat v0.9.1

    I never tried doing a 0 cover depth. But you're right. That is cool. I wish I could say that was intentional. 😜 I didn't put in roadblocks for crazy values. You could also have a negative thickness. If I was good at this - like the the people mentioned in the previous thread - I would have made cool subroutines to check the validity of the data going in. If you put in a rib spacing greater than the flat itself, then there is no rib. It takes the spacing as approximate and uses that value to calculate the number of ribs and then spaces them evenly. That way if you are duplicating flats and changing the dimension of the duplicated flat they will have approximately the same rib spacing (as opposed to specifying the number of ribs). If the rib spacing is less than half the flat dimension, you'll get at least one rib. Thanks for your help!

    Fast Flat v0.9.1

    Thanks, Peter, for pointing out what a mess Fast Flats was in metric! Here's a new version. Let's call it v 0.9.2. Release Notes. 1. Now with metric! 2. Brace lengths are now parametric. Enjoy. Fast Flat.vso

    Fast Flat v0.9.1

    They are mostly steel here, too. 25mm is 1", which is the most common here. Hey, I just noticed that you're in Australia. I'll be there next week! New plug in coming in about 5 minutes.

    Fast Flat v0.9.1

    FIXED!!! Couple of questions: What is the standard sheet good dimensions in metric? (In the US it's 4'x8'[1.22m x 2.44m]) What are the standard framing dimensions? In the US it is 3/4" x 3" (or 3.5") [19mm x 76mm]).

    Fast Flat v0.9.1

    I have a fix to get the jack to work as well (or as badly) as it does in imperial units. 🙂 Let me know what the default metric values should be and I'll push out a new version.
