  1. Drop Shadows are applied from the Attributes palette but they can also be defined through a Class definition and be set to be always on or always off if the Use at Creation option is switched on. Your arbitrary switching on and off will almost certainly be related to the Class of the object you are drawing. Even if you have Drop Shadows on in the None Class of the Attribute Palette if your object is a different Class and that Class is set to Use at Creation for its graphic attributes then that will override the settings on the Attributes Palette.
  2. Vectorworks Fundamentals doesn't have Section Viewports. Under the Model menu it has Cut 3D Section and Cut 2D Section. These can be combined together on a Design Layer to create a section like view. These are not live sections though and they will not update as you make further changes.
  3. The method is the same a in Vw 2016. Select Image from the pop-up. In the subsequent dialog box make sure the option to tile horizontally and vertically is switched on.
  4. Make sure your: - Site Modifier is a Pad and set to Proposed. - Site Model 2D Display is set to Proposed or Proposed + Existing (depending on which you want). - Site Model 3D Display is set to Proposed. You then need to hit the Update button on the OIP. Don't overlook that you can create Snapshots of the Site Model in different configurations.
  5. You could probably do it with the AnimationWorks add on. http://www.ozcad.com.au/products/animationworks.php It would take a long time to render the movie though.
  6. You can adjust the location of the Window in the Wall by adjusting the Plan Wall Offset value on the OIP. Positive values move the window towards the inside and negative values move it towards the outside. That doesn't completely solve the problem though as the Wall break lines show for the full depth of the Walls and if you have Draw Wall Lines on the outer wall line shows where the outer face of the wall would be without the recess.
  7. The simplest way around this is to move the shelf unit off the wall by a few mm. Another solution is to turn the shelf unit into a symbol and include your own 3D extrude in the symbol for the back component. I would also like to see the shelf unit made better. Also all the other cabinetwork objects.
  8. The Vectorworks Design Summits are well worth going to. I thoroughly enjoyed the one I went to last year.
  9. It works for me so I'm wondering if you have an incomplete installation. Get one of your fellow students to check the file.
  10. Sharon, on the OIP you have the Set Frame To parameter set to Wall Thickness. Set it to Default Thickness and the masonry sill will appear. Did you really want the window set so it is flush with the outer face of the masonry wall leaf? If so adjust the frame thicknesses in Settings and set the distance from wall face accordingly. Note: Ozcad have confirmed that the behaviour of the masonry sill not activating when the frame is set to wall thickness is intentional. If you think about it that makes sense because you would only use full depth frame in a framed or monolithic construction wall.
  11. Use the Deform tool in Bend Solid Mode (Model Toolset).
  12. Once you have turned the sill on the Class WD-3D Sill should appear in the Class list.
  13. Sharon, can you post a file with just the Wall with the problem Windoor unit in it.
  14. Have you checked that: - the Windoor Sill Class is on. - the Windoor unit is not flipped so the sill is on the inside rather than the outside.
  15. You need to apply Renderworks Textures to the walls. If there is part of a wall that you want a different colour you can do this with a Decal.
