    Renders that don't reflect current state?

    @markdd I've had that. I'm glad you highlighted it. I thought I was losing my mind.
  3. Hello John I really liked the internal image of the stairs. Can I be cheeky and ask what the texture is of the glass please ? Is it a standard VW texture?  Many thanks in advance David

      Hi Dave,

      Sorry I don't recognize this image. Do you have the right John?

    Stairs with no section fill in Clip Cube Viewports

    @lineweight this was done in RW using a standard create viewport from a clip cubed perspective view cheers D

    Stairs with no section fill in Clip Cube Viewports

    Are you saying the simple stair is legacy and the (newer) stair tool is the one which doesn't show solid? I abandoned the newer stair tool some time ago being much happier in legacy-luddite land! I love the visualization of the clip cube tool especially as you can also do cut throughs in perspective. I have to say we used to issue 3-4 versions of our planning drawings (x8 dwgs) (x35 jobs a year) but now we only have to issue 2 versions as the clients "get" the space almost immediately. It saves soooo much time and is a pleasure to work with. This advanced feature was introduced in 2019 so credit where credit is due! I give you the 4 storey Richmond beast!

    Stairs with no section fill in Clip Cube Viewports

    Hi @Christiaan I don't seem to suffer from that particular problem? This is taken from a clip cube into a sheet layer using a standard create viewport command. The stair is derived from the simple stair tool. Or maybe I've misunderstood? Happy to help if I can cheers D
  12. 2 to 3d is indeed a steep learning curve. It requires a lot more effort and time up front. This can reap rewards if you end up issuing at least 2-4 revisions plus for planning and working drawings, particularly if you like decent renders etc and or need to be efficient /faster/ more accurate etc. We have become 40% more efficient in doing this over the long term. On a note of caution however the programme (and I think its the same for others ?) is not brilliant at real fine tune detailing which we still do in 2d over 3d models. Hope this helps!

    Double Miter Bug?

    @Markvl Aha. hasn't happened for a while but just did. Took me a while to find your thread. This is by no means a scientific answer but having had a play around I discovered if I altered the thickness of the problem-roof the double miter returned! (Like it was waking up to the instruction...and needed a memory jog....) HtH
