    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.

  9. 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.

    Service Pack 2 for Vectorworks 2019 released

    I opted to finally upgrade to Mojave yesterday and have been working all morning with no issues (VW19 sp2). I'm mostly developing 3d furniture models, not any complex architectural work. I think Andrew nailed it..no official announcement but Jim did post confirmation that VW has worked through the majority of Mojave conflicts other than some printing issues.

    Apply different color to subtracted surfaces?

    Thanks, Andy. Mark's technique worked well for this but, for the next phase, I need to add different colors (like attached pattern) to each drawer front. I think converting to Nurbs will be helpful for that. Again, much appreciated. This forum has helped me so much over the years. I feel fortunate to have access to the wealth of knowledge offered here.

    Thanks, Mark. Will check it out. Much appreciated.
  15. Hi, All. I’m trying to apply a different color to the recessed pattern area on these drawer fronts but not really sure how to go about this. Is there a simple way to achieve this? Any help from the forum would be great. Thanks in advance.
