    Ceiling grid to IFC

    Could you point me in the right direction in the document, at first glance I don't see what you are referring to. Our problem is that we would like to bring in the 600x600 pattern in a ceiling into IFC to check the placements of light fixtures, vent and other building equipment.
  2. Yes, the parameter as a 2D polygon and the text and a symbol
  3. Hi, We have a bit of an intricate wish for an export option. When we make finished documents for our client they would like our spaces to be exported as polygons and the text as a symbol (we also have to be able to decide the class of the text) In Revit there is an export option that supports this, but we do not have that in VW. Does anyone know if its possible or maybe a feature for 2019? Would make our workflow much easier... Ida

    Ceiling grid to IFC

    Any news on the grid lines following in to IFC, on the ceiling grid tool! And also adjusting the thickness?
  5. Hi, Have made several concrete stairs. (The solid stair seems not to have the same problem) When I export to IFC the landing disappears. U-stair double landing and U-stair singel landing. Anyone with the same issue? Bug? Vectorworks 2018 SP2 Ida
  6. Hi, The issue was solved by the Norwegian distributer Scott. Thanks Scott! As simpel as a "light" was left on the layer that turned dark and over rides the Open GL render. So no bug Just user fault Zoomer: a) layer is blue because of project sharing. It means I have the layer checked out. It also on Mac. c) its standard open GL quick render that as I understood gives a general light to the whole model Ida
  7. I use open GL and wireframe to have a quick look on how the project is in 3D. The model turns dark when I turn on one of the layesr and turns light again if I turn it off. Is there a setting I am missing? There is a heliodon in the file, but not on any layers turned on. If I turn it on it makes the model light again. Its 2018 SP2. Ida Open GL Open GL with layer that makes it dark Open GL with "dark" and heliodon layer turned on

    VW 2018 Project sharing

    If you dont use project sharing and just a regular vwx file it works fine And now we hope no more problems with partial committing.

    VW 2018 Project sharing

    Have updated to SP2 and we still have problems with changes not being committed properly. Some changes are committed like updating saved views, but adding a new layer are not committed. We have now changed the settings in the working file that was the problem in the project sharing menu on "Settings" to have ticked on "Safe Save" It now seems to work. If others have the same problem this can be the issue. Anybody else using project sharing in 2018? The unstable issue on object based check out seems to continue......
  10. Hi, I am using a section viewport in a layer to use as a backdrop to sketch on facades. I use the "Display hidden line in wireframe" option, when I zoom in the section viewport just disappears. I had to change the Navigation Graphics to "Best performance" in the VW preferences, Display. But this results in every operation taking a couple of seconds, witch makes it very time consuming to draw. The section viewport seems to work better in a sheet, but thought it was better to work on the facades in a layer, so that you are more flexible with scale. Anybody else with this issue? I have a new pretty fast Mac so it should be more than capable to run the program. VW2018 SP1 Hope its better in SP2..... Ida

  12. Hi, Anybody using VW 2018 project sharing? We have had quite a lot of problems using it. 1. The object base checkout seems not to work properly and we had to be very strict on only using layer checkout. Often we could do changes to objects another person had checked out. 2. One person in committing but the changes are not saved to the project file. The person doing the changes do a commit and it even comes up as a change in the other persons working file, both as an update on the refresh button and in the history of the project sharing menu. But the change is just not there. We had to do a projectile from the person that had done the plan changes and the changes done by the other person on the facades just had to be discharged. This is a very annoying problem. It seems that the connection to the project file is suddenly just lost, or is working half way. Some stuff is committed other things not. We are updating to SP 2 today and hope that these issues will be improved. Any others having the same problem?

    IFC export color

    Hi, The colour on walls you can controll with the "edit wall style" and edit wall attributes. The colour you choose for the fill here will follow the walls into IFC. Class colours (fill) also seem to follow different objects to IFC. Ida
  14. Hi, We have used the vectorworks tool "seating layout" and "tabels and chairs", when it exports to IFC it makes the file huge. With chairs/tables 150MB without 10MB. Would think that the built in tools that automaticaly has IFC entity should be sutable for exporting, whitout sky rocketing the file size. Improvements on the way? This is with VW2016 Ida
