  1. Just wanted to take a moment to give major kudos to VW for "Multiple View Panes". I, for one, love this feature. Makes my approach to modeling more fluid and efficient. Thanks, VW...great update!
  2. Thanks again, Kevin..the technique you mentioned worked quite well for me. Much appreciated.
  3. Lol......thanks!
  4. Thanks so much, Kevin. I'll work through this technique and let you know how it goes.
  5. Hi, Everyone. I'm struggling to create a certain shape that I need for a furniture design I'm working on. Easiest way to explain is via the attached screenshot. I'm trying to create a subtle curved taper using the "brickmold" wood pieces but not sure how to go about this. Is it possible to form a straight column, compose or group it, then shave the sides to create the curved taper form? I might not be wording this correctly but I think the screenshot should be self explanatory. Any thoughts or comments will be much appreciated. Thank you.
  6. Both techniques worked so thank you again. For now, it's easiest to just change my import scale to 1:1 and be done with it ( I have about 30 files to review). I can't tell you how much I've appreciated this forum over the years.
  7. Thanks so much for the help.
  8. Boy...still stumped here. Can you take a look at this file and see if you can make the large dimension arrows go away? I'm attaching it now. This is just after importing. Thank you. 303_Buffet.vwx
  9. I'm in the process of importing quite a few dwg's from an office that uses AutoCad. Everything comes in fine other then one detail. The dimensional arrow markers are HUGE. I'm attaching a screenshot to give a sense of this. I have tried playing with the import settings to no avail. Does anyone have the quick fix to this, maybe experienced a similar thing before? Thanks for any help.
  10. Thanks, Zoomer. I'll look into that.
  11. I need to create a 3D solid object that looks something like the attached 2d screen shot. I'm trying to create the carved texture you see on the image attached by taking that object and then subtracting from a solid one. I can easily extrude a free form shape but that ends up straight along it's path. I need that path to be irregular also. Maybe I’m going about this totally wrong...this is a bit out of my wheelhouse. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Perhaps a different approach or one that gives me the solid object I'm trying to create? Ultimately, I don't have to duplicate the image exactly but just convey a somewhat similar hand carved look to the surface. Thanks in advance for any help here...always appreciated.
  12. That's a good point...thanks. It does seem simpler to change path with Sweep than EAP. I'm back on track now.
  13. Great to know......thanks again.
  14. The beauty of this forum. Yup, that was it! The other day, I was curious about that setting, so switched it on. Unfortunately, forgot to turn it off. Thanks so much everyone.
  15. Thanks, Pat. Yes, I've never been concerned about the location of the profile before. Having said that, I just opened a new blank file, plan view, placed one circle in, then placed a smaller circle in. Selected both and used the larger circle as the path, smaller one as profile and.....failed once again! See screenshots. I'm starting to wonder if this is some malfunction of VW for some weird reason. Is it possible something is corrupt here??
