    Smarter Wall Framer

    On the back of the awesome Autoturn partnership - if interoperability with something like Framecad would if at all possible would be a way to not have to spend resource time on the inbuilt framer tool for light steel framing.

    So is the 2018 Mac Mini a viable VW machine?

    Right... if I'd been in less of a rush skim reading the post and selected the right render mode I wouldn't be wondering why the 2700x pipped the threadripper... When I did it with the right mode, its a much more respectable 1:33. Face palm... 🙄 A 2990WX would scream through it for sure!

    Ditto - curiosity got the better of me to see how a windoze machine would compare - did it in 4:01. Win 10, 12 core Threadripper OC'd to 3.9ghz, 32 gb ram, Samsung M.2 970 EVO SSD and GTX 1080ti

    Data Tag - Positioning Tags

    What if the additional leaders were ‘dumb’? If the designer knows the other objects they would like to be identified are the same as the primary object tagged then there should be no need for these additional leaders to pick up data... or be slightly smart and alert the user that the object the leader could snap to isn’t the same object a Athen primary object tagged. Would be a welcome functional addition.
  5. Bricscad V19 looks pretty awesome... but they all do in promo vids! I've just spent an entire evening and day trying to get VW to render elevations.. and its not even a big project. The lost time with 2018 and now 19 on random things is frustrating. Now that v19 has site modelling, it might be work another look - I cerrtainly don't want to have to learn another package like I did moving from Revit to VW... the thought is depressing... but so are the tools that need way to many clicks to use and the hanging and bugs.. I thought the conference keynote where they said the focus was on quality was a kick in the teeth with this release.. I'd just like the essential stuff to work but I get a image editor I'll never use.

    @Boh yeah that's what I keep telling them 😁

    Season of Thanks

    Yep, just about every day I think to myself how truly lucky we are to have software that does amazing things - no matter how big the small issues become. When you have clients start crying when they see visualizations of their dream project, its all worth it - thanks Vectorworks and thanks Jim - as the face of the company we see the most in these forums your effort is outstanding and makes it totally worth the price of entry no matter how much I get teased by my colleagues I must be the only person left in NZ that uses VW 🙂

    macOS Mojave (10.14) Compatibility

    Whoa - back up the bus a minute! I'm not seeing any attacks on your practice or how you work. rgcn's post is a 'nothing ventured nothing gained' scenario - if you don't ask you'll never know - I think we all understand we can't email everybody, but sometimes a friendly email to a supplier you use the most might yield a positive response and go a small way to making life easier... if not then nothing changes. As a former revit user I can attest to manufacturers families being badly made and shonky - I've had to fix a number of them - and when I've emailed the company the fixed file, I heard nothing but crickets - and the shonky file doesn't get updated. Not all things are created equal in any platform... I worked at a practice where the architect was using slabs to make garage doors.... Unfortunately, Autodesk are only adding IFC compatibility because they have to ... they certainly don't look like they want to embrace it. Here in NZ, there is virtually nothing for VW outside the included library... I have to make it all myself, so I totally get your frustration

    Good to know! Any change of testing with an eGPU? Maybe this is the modular route apple could take... 🤔

    Disappearing geometry in 3d views

    I'm doing feasibility studies for a regular client and part of it includes doing a a glass box type height in relation to boundary planes. I show a few OpenGL perspective views on the plans to show the lack of of the extent of infringement, but with an image underneath the site model, the height planes disappear depending on where the view is set - without an image it works as expected. When I first started doing these it worked as expected, but possibly sing a 2018 service pack and in 2019 it does it all the time - regardless or ortho or perspective views. Restarts don't help. Is this s a bug or view setting possibly? The rear view shows how it should look and the front shot shows some of the planes missing.

    Image crop bug

    As attached - I've imported an image, resized it to fit my panel on the sheet layer, copy the panel rectangle, crop image and paste in the rectangle. When exiting crop image the handles are are away from the image -to get it to snap back together, you have to resize it with one of the phantom handles and then ctrl-z it to get it back to the size you wanted. More annoying than anything else... but 😣

    Apple Special Event

    Gouged is a term I’d use for NZ prices 😬... glad I was sitting down when I read them... The 12.9 iPad Pro is ridiculous now.

    Apple Special Event

    And no hints about the Mac Pro... disappointing... If they can't design a tower, they've really lost it
