  1. Hello @K.Lalkovski , I am still getting the same warning trying to install Pillow module (you said should have been fixed…). The module is correctly installed, but this warning is presented as a script error and users of my PlumBob plugin gets disoriented. I am running Vectorworks 2021 R1 (Build 563191) on MacOS 10.14.6.
  2. New version of the Export to SVG menu command just released: https://fitplot.it/vwplugins/exportSVG.html What's new: Improved algoritm Added option to export bitmap images (see dialog) Now the plugin supports also: Symbol, groups, bitmap images, plugin objects, dimensions New attributes supported: Line dashes, markers
  3. @Kim Muhmenthaler You are just one step away from goal… Modify your workspace (here all the info https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/VW2020_Guide/Start/Customizing_workspaces.htm) In few words: Select Tools > Workspaces > Edit Current Workspace The workspace editor panel appears Now, on the left column, scroll down and open Import/Export to see the Export to SVG item On the right column, open the File menu, then Export submenu (where to place the Export to SVG item) Drag the item on the left column to where you want it to appear the File -> Export menu Save the workspace (click ok and confirm) Now your Export to SVG menu command is available.

  4. @Kim Muhmenthaler please let me know if you have installed the menu command. I am here to help you. For Windows installation is better to ask @Brian(J)
  5. The Vectorworks user folder should be in: \Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Nemetschek\Vectorworks\20xx By default, both Mac and Windows hide the application data folder. If you use the default user folder, you might want to adjust your system settings to make hidden folders visible. Alternatively, create a new user folder in a more accessible location. once the user folder is visible, you should be able to see the user’s Plug-Ins folder where to copy the .vsm.

    With this command menu you can export many Vectorworks objects in SVG. Splines, bezier, arcs, lines (polylines components in Vectorworks paths) are perfectly converted into SVG quadratic curves.
  8. The menu command Export to SVG is officially released. Available on the Gumroad® platform at €25+ or starting from the product page: https://fitplot.it/vwplugins/exportSVG.html The plugin is available for both Vectorworks®2020 and 2021. Beta versions (on the website) remain available until expiring (December 15th 2020). On request I can provide evaluation version (working for a limited time). Please send requests / comments / feedback through the form (bottom of the page on the website).
  9. A beta version of my Export to SVG menu command is now available for a limited time...
  10. A beta version of my Export to SVG menu command is now available for a limited time...
  11. Export to SVG is a menu command (available for Vectorworks® 2020 and 2021) Info here... Available in beta version (expiring December 15th 2020) Downloadable from here... Please, let me have your feedback / suggestions The final plugin will be available at a fair price on my Gumroad® page and on my website.
  12. I do not know what is causing this error. I suspect this is due to the encryption I have done. Another cause may be that the plugin has been made and encrypted in VW2021 and though there is no use of newer functions (that were not present in VW2020), the encryption phase may have been changed. A third cause may be due to the new python 3.7 provided with VW2021. Tomorrow I should be able to prepare e VW2020 version and submit it to all for testing.
  13. @Brian(J) try to download the file again, let me know if the error persists.
  14. @Brian(J) here's the instructions (from the site)... Unpacking the downloaded zip file, you'll find a sole element: Export to SVG.vsm Move the “Export to SVG.vsm” file inside your Vectorworks Plug-ins folder (in your case C:\Program Files\Vectorworks 2020\Plug-Ins). Restart Vectorworks. Edit your workspace adding the menu Export to SVG command (you'll find it in Import/Export category) Usually you'll add it in the File menu, Export submenu. Save the workspace. In the end you should get a new menu item Export to SVG in the File -> Export submenu. Here instructions for editing the workspaces: https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/VW2020_Guide/Start/Customizing_workspaces.htm And here instructions to add a menu command: https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/VW2020_Guide/Start/Modifying_menus_and_commands.htm#XREF_12039_Modifying_Menus Note: the plugin is written in VW2021, however your 2020 should get it to work.
  15. Here's the Export to SVG beta to test: Export to SVG Beta The Beta shows a dialog at start that will be removed in the final release. The Beta will cease to work on December 15th, I hope to get some feedback, here on this post or with the form on the plugin page Export to SVG website
  16. @Brian(J) I am preparing a Beta version for you (and all) to download and try. I will post the download link asap. P.S.: the SVG code in my files has not changed since earlier versions. Usually SVG readers are very tolerant. I am the author of the SVG import plugin that is included in the Vectorworks italian version and I can assure you that there are, out there, so many ways of how the svg are listing their numerical values (with or without commas, spaces, carriage returns etc.) and it seems to me strange that Shaper cannot read a simple SVG 1.1 file that passes the official Mozilla consortium validation. I have seen that the SVG exported with the Fusion plugin adds specific code that Shaper uses, but this should be obtained also interpreting the colors and fills suggested in their templates.
  17. @Brian(J) this is my attempt: prandina.svg.zip Substantially, I have copied the header: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <!-- Generator: SVG Export Plug-In © Paolo Marcuccetti 2020. SVG Version: 20201206 --> <!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd"> <svg version="1.1" id="Level_1" x="0px" y="0px" width="558.96px" height="782.8799999999999px" enable-background="new 0 0 558.96 782.8799999999999" viewBox="0 0 558.96 782.8799999999999" xml:space="preserve" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:shaper="http://www.shapertools.com/namespaces/shaper" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"> and inserted a "," comma between x and y coordinates of the various path vertexes (as seen in your examples). I hope this work. Since I do not know what are Shaper SVG specific rules, I cannot go further chasing a (particular) solution by attempts, with the risk of losing the general compatibility.
  18. @Brian(J) my linked SVG files are actually hosted on my website. To send me an SVG, simply compress it as zip, then you can attach it to a post in this forum (as the .zip I sent you before).
  19. New SVG test updated produced with the latest plugin version. Feel free to test it in your workflow, I'd like to have your feedback. geometry test.svg lines test.svg text with stroke test.svg
  20. Hi @Brian(J), here I am Archivio.zip I have refurbished my algorithm to avoid the usage of the <g> tag so you do not have to ungroup. The produced SVG is 1.1 to maximise the compatibility. Hope this works.
