    Site Model showing as an "endless tube"

    @PhileasHi, got it to work ok. Site model design layer has to be set to Zero as the levels work from there. Enter skirt lowest level. See attached. CRA_EXE_50 Site Model v2019 v2018.vwx

    Stop Camera From Moving?

    @Bruce Kiefferhi, from the viewports go to enter viewports there should be a checkbox relating to the camera, uncheck it and it should not move. I use the walk through mode to get my view and save view and make viewports from them, much easier. HTH

    Until Next Time

    @Jim WilsonJim, sad to see you go but one needs to prioritise, life is short and you always follow your gut felling. Yourself and family first, live life and follow your dreams. I realized this life late in life after working 100 hrs a week for years and have a family member die young and my Doc calling me at work and saying go home i want you in the hospital tomorrow for heart surgery. All the best and enjoy the family and life. Alan

    sliding glass door not showing up in plan view

    @minottoHi, This issue can arise if something is way off internal origin of the program. Turn on all classes and do a select all and zoom extents. Display your internal origin. If you have things way off in the distance delete them if you know what they are untill you get Z extents with just your drawing. See if this helps.

    Roof pitch assistance

    @niknakHi would you not just draw a horizontal line in VW then a line at 22.5Deg. the vertical at the end would give you the height. then do same for another pitch. Unless i am missing the question.

    WINDOW - Wall detail issues

    @drelARCHHi, what i tend to do here is change the texture of the wall style internal component to match the face texture. it shows the same in 2d but in 3d the face texture wraps in. HTH

    @HEengineeringHi, I know what you mean about the icon in top right. What i do is have a full screen curser. it helps in me in drawing. Set option here in tools/options/Vecterworks Preferences/interactive. See attached. the Red line is X and Green is Y.
