    titel block craches

    Problems with record formats in title blocks. When we try to fill in new data the file craches every time. This happened after upgrade to Mojave. Bug? Mac OS Mojave VW 2018 SP6

    Ceiling grid in IFC moves randomly

    Found a work around, that is not obviously logical. Tried the old trick, cut, paste, but that did not work. But I flipped the ceiling grid and moved it back in place, and that worked, interesting.....
  3. Hi, Exporting ceiling grid to IFC and it moves randomly in the export, some don't move and others move what seems to be no particular distance from where they originally were. Any others experience the same issue? VW 2018 SP 6 on Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6

    Resource Manager is blank

    Same thing has happened to me a couple of times, have to restart to get it back. Think I then was on SP4 not the same issue with SP5. But today however when I have made som new walltypes the program freezes. Aseptically when I write info in "Data" in "Edit style". When I have filled out the field "Description" I just get the spinning ball and have to force quit the program. Happened 8 times in a row or something. Now I have to save after every step I do....
  5. H Kevin, We updated a week ago when the "good news" came that we could use VW 2018 with Mojave. So its the newest version..... Sad to say its not working out so well. The rest of the office are not updating to Mojave. Ida
  6. Hi, A colleague has updated to Mojave and is working on 2018 SP5. She can no longer edit the title block. Our title blocks are symbols with record formats. When she tries to edit the file locks and she has to restart the program. The workaround is to put a white square over and write on top of it. Not a good solution in the long run. No one else have updated to Mojave because of all the issues she is experiencing. Most projects still run on 2018 not 2019. Ida

    Wall end cap to IFC

    Hi, Yes, my colleague found this link that explains it. For me it seemed to be logical that it was a wall and in Vectorworks its seemed to be a wall, so thats why I thought it was a bug. http://www.buildingsmart-tech.org/ifc/IFC2x3/TC1/html/ifcproductextension/lexical/ifccovering.htm

    Ceiling grid to IFC

    Hi Mihail, The second one is the most important for our work. The first one we can achieve with workarounds. But I have stressed this issue, to our Norwegian distributer, Jim W, at the summit in Chicago and other VW people on several ocations. As I understood it the ceiling grid tool is an old tool that will probably not be developed further. As you see I started asking for this in 2015. It is something one can do in Revit and Archicad and its a really important feature for us. Since IFC is the main exchange for files and checking of instalations. If the ceiling grid could export like below to IFC that is what we are looking for.

    Wall end cap to IFC

    It seems to me when you use wall end cap on a wall it is still a wall in VW but becomes covering in Solibri.

    Federated floor IFC Solibri

    Yes, we use stories and assign them to layers. Location "Floor" is correct and shows the different stories right. Its only "federation floor" that is not logic. The issue might be that we are exporting from a reference file, since the contractor wants the building 1,52 degrees tilted and in the correct geo location. Everything else seems correct and there is no problems with hights or location. I just don't understand the feature "federation floor" and where in VW it comes from.

    Federated floor IFC Solibri

    The random is that in one export the federated floor was"Etasje 1" for all floors and in the next it was "Kjeller U1" for all floors without me changing any settings. Just trying to understand what Federation floor is connected to in the VW file. As I understood when I read about it its suppose to show native stories form Vectorworks, that is not the case now.

    Ceiling grid to IFC

    This is good for grid lines, but not for a ceiling grid. Way to much workaround and to complicated, for our process ūüôā What we are looking for is to be abel to get the ceiling grid tool to go directly into IFC with a 600x600 or 1200x600 panels. To be able to control the placement of HVAC and electrical installations.

    Wall end cap to IFC

    Hi, Before we have had issues with the wall end cap to IFC. It has exported as "open sheets and not a solide wall into IFC. Then we did a work around to make it solide. In 2018 SP4 it export as solide, but its not a wall it export as covering not wall that is an issue for us. Is this fixed in 2019 or will there be another service pack on 2018?
  14. Hi, There is a new feature in Solibri in the INFO Location pallet called Federated Floor. I have done a couple of exports and don't understand how I can control this from Vectorworks to IFC. Seems like its random. Does anybody know how to control this from VW?

    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.
