    Symbol Creation

    Yes that an obvious workaround that could be solved by the simple addition of another tick box.

    Symbol Creation

    I would like to create a symbol form an object and have the original drawing remain. Only option I see is leave instance in place. (Which is the new symbol) Unless I am missing something I cant leave the original drawing which i would like to do without having to edit or explode the symbol. Maybe someone can enlighten me??

    VR Goggles

    @MRD Mark RidgewellHi, there is very little you need to do to get your model into Unity. You use your VW 3D model. Opening and closing door, switching on lights are pretty straight forward, see some of my other videos on VR. I haven’t gone into higher level production as this was all I needed and was adequate. your 3D model to Unity with a template file setup takes only a few minutes. See my video as to how to export and import. HTH https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gy2JqGrZMok&t=2s

    VR Goggles

    @salukitdHi, there is real VR and stereo VR. Stereo VR is the what I describe it where you look at 2 images split by a card that stops your left eye from seeing the right side image etc. this is how VW can be shown using model exported by VW as Webview and you use any of a many devices to insert your phone into to see a model in 3D. These devices are all relatively inexpensive, less than $50. To gain a full immersive experience you need units like HTC Vive or Oculus Rift which are all around $1,000Aus. Currently VW doesn’t export to suite these headsets, to use them I transfer my model to a gaming program called Unity. Refer my videos for examples. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=g8kDxktdVH8 HTH.
  9. @AsemblanceHi, if you hit ctl/alt/m you get the option to move in the x,y,&z direction. Also click on a object and bottom right of screen you will see the location in 3D of your curser. HTH

    Items not deleting

    @Scott61Hi hit 5 on you num pad then 1, if all layer rotate to 3D it’s ok, if not make sure unified views is checked. If not select the offending items and place on layer plane. HTH

    need help with odd roadway texture

    @domer1322Hi, I’m guessing that if you select the dtm modifier the attributes will not show as all by class. Change to all by class and check what texture is on the class also. HTH

    VR - Virtual Reality

    @ccwIn London at present, back to Sydney next week. Check out the VRTK videos and at the start of the setup you should see any section where they select either oculus or steam. Hopefully the rest is similar. Will look later. Good luck.

    VR - Virtual Reality

    @ccwHi haven’t tried the Rift setup but I think we can figure it out. When setting up the controllers this is where it should be done. Will look at it next week when back from holidays. Check web for Oculus setup and Unity.

    Copy Custom View?

    @Bruce KiefferHi you didn’t group the viewport first, you won’t get the message when you group. When you copy the viewport over you in group and then click the view and activate the design layers as per your other viewpoint. i will do a video when I get home.
