  1. Just going through the help file. It's amazing how many little things have been changed. My favorite so far: Repeating commands Now you can easily reuse commands by selecting Repeat [last command] and Recent Commands
  2. I've tried BlenderBIM last week. Has quiet a bit of a learning curve. I managed to get the clash detection running, but after a while a had some errors regarding python scripts running in the background. It could be a nice free tool for basic model checking. I am also curious about BelnderBIMs capability of comparing an ifc-file against an IDS for validating the data.
  3. I am also following him since a while. He recently gave an intersting interview on the trxl podcast (Link). He is also a regular guest on the osarch youtube channel. BlenderBIM has plenty of potential because it's also agnostic to you field of work. I am also impressed with the speed of development for being open source.
  4. Hi, I find it a bit frustrating that the search menu is implemented so inconsistently. It's super helpful that it works for classes in most drop down menus. Where I am missing it though is working with records and worksheets. I have to manually scroll down a long list. We need more search options in all dropdown menus. Thanks!
  5. We need in general a more comprehensive way of working with large resources. We have a batch renaming command now for all of them, but there is potential for more batch commands.
  6. That would be nice. They could also improve the data manager in that regard. Atm it is tedious to assign ifcobjecttypes to symbols there as well and set up the mapping.
  7. This wish is an enhancement request for worksheets and the data manager. I would like to have the sorting order in the data manager matching the one in my record. Same goes for creating a worksheet with the dialog. Atm they are sorted alphabetically. For a small amount of fields I can manually sort it, but now we have a record with 30 fields and I have to reorder them again. If I import the record into another file the whole thing starts again. There is a reason why I create record fields in a certain order and I would like to maintain that order. That should be the standard and deviation from it can still happen later. Thanks!
  8. Hi all, Nvidia released a fantastic new platform for realtime collaboration and simulation. They already have a connection for Revit, but now they also implemented a connection for Archicad. I feel a bit behind the trend with Vectorworks. We always seem to be a little late to the party of cutting edge technology. But maybe I am wrong and something amazing will be revealed tomorrow. Cheers!
  9. Sadly this still happens with data tags. It's a different project and a different use case. Very frustrating, because we can't reproduce it and this time it's a project file. So we have to account for even more users. 😞
  10. Thanks for clearing that up. Seeing forward to the improvements. For now though it's not usable for us. In our design process we would have to update it too many times. And even if it's only two clicks, in the design process it adds up quickly.
  11. I have to say I am a bit disappointed. We are still missing a viable option for live rendering in Vectorworks on macOS. So far it only exists for Enscape and Lumion. When it was teased in the road maps and presentations, I was under the impression that we would finally get it with SP3. So in the end it's only a nicer export. :(
  12. Yes. That was my experience as well. It's just confusing to get an unrelated error message.
  13. That's bad news. I was also hoping on some improvements. I get an error message for odbc if I am using SQlite. 😤 Very frustating!
  14. Hi. Are these walls by any chance IfcWallStandardCases? IIRC it's part of their standard definition and the clipping of the walls happens inside the BIM programms. Some programms require standard cases, for example Revit. They can then translate them into native walls.
  15. There is also Navisworks, but than you have to buy into the Autodesk Ecosystem or Desite from Thinkproject. Desite is very powerful and capable. But so far all these programms are quite expensive.
