  1. they've been very clear ....don't upgrade yet.....
  2. Looks like BIM in relation to Vectorworks means something different.... B(uild) I(t) M(anually) !!!
  3. very , very few, vectorworks files on BimObject (692 in total) , compared to about 80,000 for revit......
  4. think a 'to do' list is required 😀....... wishing doesn't do it anymore!!
  5. Hi Wes, solves the dimensions problem but my only issue with that is its not live , ie you have to copy the window to another layer each time you make a change to windows or elevations (defeats the purpose of BIM in the first place) If only they could make the image editable ....
  6. just curious as to others preferred method for doing window (or door) schedules? While the worksheets are fine for text , I've now resorted to making a separate worksheet for window images and scaling it up in a layer , then I make a viewport of each window onto the sheet (locking viewports in position otherwise viewports jump) - only drawback is you can't add dimensions to viewport as they are images rather than hidden line. Any other favoured methods in use?
  7. some steps ok, some not....
  8. Might just be me, but the paint bucket seems to be selective about what it will and won't fill in 2019 when in annotation mode. ie will flood fill glazing in window elevation but not pick the frame (same window)? or the wall its in?
  9. Its embarrassing at this stage....... “For this release, we listened closely to our customers and balanced new innovations with exceptional quality and performance improvements,” said Vectorworks CEO Dr. Biplab Sarkar. “Specifically, in Vectorworks 2019 we concentrated on our customers’ most common workflows and usage patterns to increase their overall productivity with Vectorworks products across the board.” Stairs, windows, doors are not part of architects common workflow?! do not need performance improvements?! ....
  10. bicycles? wheelchairs? mobility scooters? and such like
  11. plan view - make a rectangle of the area you want to subtract - copy rectangle - select roof (in top plan) - edit group - paste rectangle in place and exit group - area should be removed (if I've remembered those steps correctly!)
  12. you could make shortcut or right-click option in the workspace editor...
  13. Looks great ! well done Corona gives such good results and is so easy to use.
  14. Good HDRI resource (and free) : https://hdrihaven.com
  15. The option to change the side width of the cabinets from the default 20mm would be very useful !
  16. can't seem to figure out why the wall won't clip to the roof? Any ideas anyone??! F_ing_Roof.vwx

    duplicate along a path (its under edit menu)
  18. best option: https://andreafacchinello.wordpress.com/baseboard/
  19. I prefer the bug answer ! Why would you add so many additional steps to the process from 17? I can't add any additional areas to the existing slab in modifier mode? (also I can't see the plan I'm trying to extend in modifier mode!!)
  20. any one have this issue??: I have a slab with about 7 components; I draw a standard rectangle and create a slab , no problems, I then add another rectangle (overlapping) and select both and add surface, all works , original slab is extended. If however I try to add another area with the same add surface workflow, it will not join onto the slab, unless its a new edge of the original slab. note - it seems to work fine if the rectangle overlaps the original slab but will not extend an already extended piece... ie. the orange bit won't add onto the white slab bit slab.vwx
  21. voted ! but 2020 is far too long to wait for an update on this , likewise window and door tools..... shouldn't even be on a wishlist in the first place.
  22. I'm on High Sierra 10.13.1 , Vectorworks 18 SP2 and R19.024 and all ok - ie getting option about merge when changing vectorworks drawing......
  23. Try corona for c4d , great for archviz, https://corona-renderer.com/ free beta at the moment with expected release in the new year
