  1. ctrl alt del, open task manager, select the the startup tab and disable every application that doesn't need to run at startup. Pays to google what you are disabling in some cases, as the names of some application executable in the list aren't obvious..
  2. Windoor doesn't do do stops either unfortunately...
  3. Since data tags arrived, I've stopped using the windoor tags and made custom data tags that you can tag windoor objects in either the design layer or viewport annotations - so much more flexible. There is a video on the ozcad site covering them and also how to display user field data as well.
  4. Exactly - I used surface array and a small extrude of a profiled metal cladding to make the roof and wall cladding on the attached - it gives infinitely more realism to renders than displacement mapping can or where this isn't available.
  5. Yep for the mx ergo and 3dconnexion space mouse. Never leave home without ‘em. I struggle to use VW without the space mouse these days.
  6. I've got Big Sur on a 15" 2019 MBP, 2.3ghz 8 core, 32gb RAM running a Radeon RX580 8gb card in an eGPU with two 27" dell monitors at 2560x1440 - VW 2021 SP2 working as well as it did on Catalina except for fuzzy toolbar icons on the dell monitors running at native resolution.. all the other palettes and quick prefs are nice and crisp .
  7. @JuanPI'm still having the jumping issue mentioned above with the latest beta driver build r3278 - is there any feedback on this issue you can share?
  8. I do residential and light commercial - and model everything in VW, including the site and the 2d detailing work. These latter two areas alone are where I find ArchiCAD falls over, and I've found modelling in VW so much more direct and intuitive as well - especially for structural members. I also find its the little things - like add surface and clip surface, then extrude or convert to slab to name one, that speed up my work; I find Archicad's workflow arduous. V2021 made a number of great usability tweaks - the only major gripe I have left is updating viewports - which will hopefully evaporate once Redshift integration comes along..
  9. Can vouch for InteriorCAD xs - phenomenal product.
  10. If you can, hold out for the nvidia RTX 3000 series graphics cards being released for next week... they are significantly more powerful (and very well priced) than the RTX 2000 cards. Bear in mind that VW graphics requirements go up every year and 2021 will likely need more graphics oomph looking at the first teaser Tuesday.
  11. I’ve made custom drawing labels with the data tag tool - works not to bad and is totally customisable.
  12. @PatStanford very true! Survey dwgs can have so much rubbish in them - depends on how good their cad person/team is. I’ve ripped a couple of surveyors for their rubbish files... at least vectorworks will still Import the file regardless of of object distance. Revit will refuse any file import that has objects over 4km apart (if I’m remembering correctly) - that was the first time I had to ask a surveyors cad person fix their mess up..! The zebra effect on 3D objects is the main giveaway for far put objects/origin distance issues. Scale is another issue I’ve struck too - I’ve had files from one particular surveyor that were always double the stated on dimensions or boundary lines. I asked colleagues who are on Revit and ArchiCAD to import and see if they had the same problem after the surveyor said it was mine or vectorworks fault. Oddly enough after pointing out two other people on different platforms had the same issue, the next version came through right... 🤔
