    Wireless Mice for Vectorworks

    I haven’t had any sensitivity issues with the MX Master either. It's been my preferred mouse since it was released several years ago. I also use "SteerMouse" a 3rd party add-on that I strongly suggest you check out. It has many settings to play with, including cursor sensitivity. Good luck.

    7 and more hour render

    This is one of the better and more informative threads about Rendering settings I've seen. Threads like this can be so helpful for those of us using Renderworks, whether beginner or advanced. Thanks, Zeno for initiating it (great work!) and thanks all for the terrific information concerning ways to improve and speed up rendering time.

    Framing Member correct texture alignment

    My error....I let slip you are using the Framing Member tool. I don't really use that tool for my work. Maybe some others will chime in if there's a way for you to alter texture direction. Thanks.

    Framing Member correct texture alignment

    Hi, Pavol. In the "Object Info/Render" palette is a rotation slider that should allow you to change the direction of the texture you're working with.

    Renderworks Cache Issues

    I deal with this daily and yes, is very frustrating. It does seem like the Renderworks cache is creating the problems. I can edit, make changes, then "custom render" and the old model pops up with none of the changes I've made present. I have found going into the custom Renderworks settings, changing that randomly, then trying again, can sometimes fix this..the key word here is "sometimes". Restarting often does the trick but I think we can all agree that's not exactly the solution anyone wants.

    VW Manual?

    Hi. As far as I know, VW no longer has any type of downloadable manual but instead uses this online help area for guidance and reference: http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2019/eng/index.htm#t=VW2019_Guide%2FLandingPage%2FWelcome_to_Vectorworks.htm

    Single twist steel rod and bar...

    Thanks, Kevin. I see now. The square extrusion is not a problem. I needed to do this on both a square extrude and a rod-like one. I might be able to get away with adding the square twist to the rod extrusion..will take a look at that. Is twisting the rod, with proper appearance, not possible?

    Single twist steel rod and bar...

    Hi, Kevin and Pat. I"m still having trouble creating the desired form and wondering if you could elaborate a little on proper technique here. The Deform tool is one I don't have much experience using. I extruded the rod and then selected the end with the deform tool. As I rotate (twist) it does this within itself so really nothing changes. How does one end up with the screw like spiral I'm trying to achieve? Thanks again for any help on this.

  13. Hi, All. I need to create this twisted steel detail on some furniture I'm working on but not sure how to go about it. Can someone point me in the right direction to do this in regard to tools and technique? As always, thank you for any help on this.

    Rendering oddity...

    Can someone explain to me why some odd rendering sequence is occurring? I took File A and "saved as" File B. Then deleted the current vanity and copy and pasted in a different one. When I got to render File B, the vanity that was in File A returns. I've purged the file, rebooted, in 2d all looks fine but then that first vanity keeps showing up each time the file is rendering. The attached screenshot gives you a sense of what's going on. The rendering starts out fine (white one in the screenshot) but as it progresses, the wood one appears. It's as if it's stuck in some VW cache..or something like that. As always, thanks for any help/advice on this.
