  1. I see, I misinterpreted your intention! I'll do some more digging.
  2. Hey, It's dirty but it works if you input enough accuracy... For some reason it says that it returns as many POLYs as the number of vertices, but in the group there is only one... Go figure NURBS TO 2D POLY.vwx
  3. Any news on this? In fact, being able to manually control on which side (or both) the tag shows would be very useful.
  4. Thanks for you reply Cberg! This again seems like a big workaround for such a simple task. You can always insert multiple objects, but why cannot VW handle one single proper curtain wall? Finding workaround is not a problem but its clunky and cumbersome when it needs to be edited. Thanks J
  5. Pat, Thanks for your answer! This is really too bad, it seems like such a simple thing. Thank you. Jean
  6. Hey Zoomer! You can integrate curtain walls in wall no problem if you convert the curtain wall into a symbol. The version that you see on this image is actually a symbol composed of multiple window objects which have their mullion overlapping each other. It could be done with multiple CW objects (as a single curtain wall does not allow stacked vertices, see above) but I find the window objects a lot more precise and reliable even though less easily editable. The symbol also has a 'hole component' which takes into account the difference between frame dimensions and rough opening. My reason for using a symbol rather than just windows is that I want the clerestory windows to show at dotted when in plan and full cut when showing the reflected ceiling plan. So with a hybrid symbol and a game of class visibility in the 2D definition of the Symbol, I can get the whole thing to display properly. But all this is just a workaround for something that Vectorworks should be able to do... The Curtain wall tool is very clunky and pretty slow and glitchy. It often crashes VW too. You can however locate the single elements very accurately if you set up your view as elevation with a rotated 3D view if necessary and define a local working plane. From there you can just work on screen plane pretty comfortably... but yes, all this for that, right.. Stepped window example.vwx
  7. Hi Wes, Thank you for your reply. Yes, in this case that works as the door comes down. But if you try to have the brick come up in the opening instead of the door (see image), I cannot make it work as well unless I juxtapose multiple curtain wall objects side by side. As shown on the screenshot in the previous message, the handles are always off by one millimetre. Thank you.
  8. Hi Alan, Thank you for your response. I did have an issue in the sequencing of the nodes. I recreated a CW the way you suggested but I still get a 1mm difference... Do you get the same thing? A subsidiary question would be: Is there a way to have the opening in the curtainwall larger at the top than at the bottom? Thank you so much for your help! Stepping CW.vwx
  9. Hello, I addition to not being able to create a stepping curtain wall with vertical steps, I do not seem to be able to create a curtain wall object that is only represented with dashed lines in Plan view. There is always solid black lines that show under the dashed lines. Has anyone encountered this issue in the past? Would anyone know how to resolve the problem and get rid of those under-lines? Thank you. DASHED CW.vwx
  10. Hello, I don't seem to be able to create a stepping curtain wall. It appears that you cannot have vertical curtain wall edges other than the start and bottom frame. Anyone know how to do that without creating multiple curtain wall? I attached a file with the question pointing at the problem on sheet layer. Thank you. Stepping CW.vwx
  11. Hello, I need to run a script on a large number of objects and think there must be a better way than duplicating the script for each object, hence my question: Is it possible to input multiple objects using the Name Input node? Thank you! J
  12. Thank you! That's great!
  13. Hi Marissa, Thank you for your reply. Yes, that makes sense, it is pretty often that you would want to modify large lists of points and multiple poly at once though. So having the possibility to input as many lists of points as the number of polygons would be very useful. Thanks!

    Loft Surface

    Hi all, Does anyone know how to loft by list of curves rather than by group? I am trying to loft between the rectangles located along the Red curves here. Thanks!
  15. Agreed, yet it should output a list of 1 polyline... not a list with as many polyline as the number of vertices it modified. The node has a data flow issue.
