  1. Some more interesting news for enscape user: https://enscape3d.com/press/enscape-and-chaos-merge/?utm_campaign=chaos-enscape-merge&utm_source=linkedin&utm_medium=press-release Wondering how it affects Vectorworks. 🤔 Interesting tidbit is that Sean Flaherty (Ex-CEO of Vectorworks) is now Chairman of the Board of Directors of Chaos.
  2. Here a screenshot from Architosh relating to Vectorworks and the Omniverse:
  3. Found this tidbit on Architosh. They also refer to the need for usd to be able to use omniverse:
  4. I think so too. We have gone through a couple of apps and haven't found one that has good annotations options and is fast. And does not cost an arm and a leg. So far I like PDF Studio 2020 the best, but the gui is a bit dated.
  5. My experience with preview on mac is that annotations are not safed properly in the pdf file. We had a case where we did annotations and filled out the documents in preview and a lawyer that was on Windows and using Acrobat Reader couldn't see anything. We had to redo everything in Adobe again to avoid the issue. Since then I am very careful with annotations in preview. Might be again an Apple propriotary thing.
  6. Yeah, we would also a have use for a script like that. For now we always draw a schema manually inside a file and print it. If there is an update to the storey heights or levels the drawing is obsolete. 😞
  7. Dear hive mind, We have started to use Resilio as our go to sync and sharing tool. We like it because it gives us more security than a cloud host. I don't want to dive too deep in that direction. My problem is more ragrding the technical side of working. When working with a .vwx file Vectoworks generates a lock-file, that prevents others from opening it. It will open only as seperate new file. On our office server it works fine, but not so with Resilio. The lock files are gettign synced, but they have no effect. I asked the Resilio support and they told me that it might be a problem with Vectoworks. Vectoworks Inc. is specifically mentioning Resilio as a "cloud" solution, that is supported. Hope someone can enlighten me, what the issue is. Regards, Elepp
  8. Hi folks, came across this article and was wondering if anyone tried it with Vectorworks and if VW Inc. is aware of this feature. They mention that it's application dependend. Any info is welcome. https://architosh.com/2021/11/amds-viewport-boost-feature-3d-and-bim-acceleration-technology/ Regards!
  9. Another wish would be that we could change the colors of pins on maps in a panorama.
  10. Hi, we are using now the new deature to create presentations in the cloud. The idea is a very nice one, we though would like to have some more features. @inikolova We would like more layout options for boards or at least be free to arrange the different elements. And we would like to be able to add pictures inside of a panorma tour. So far we can only link panoramas in a tour. We would like to integrate static images that pop up to show mood boards, for example. Thanks for reading, Eduard
  11. Sadly I am not allowed to share it. Thinking of how i could simplifiy it to upload it here.
  12. Yeah, in my opinion the whole setup of detail levels is a mess. We always struggle with a consistent of our plans to work in different scales and detail levels. In this regard the competition is way ahead of Vectorworks. We have a building that has to be split into two different files, because in one part we are already doing construction documents and in the other we are still in the design development phase. Doing both in one file is to complicated at the moment. We have to split it and reference them together again. 🙄
  13. Vectorwork does not support that file format. For now you could export an obj model to Blender 3D and export it as USDZ from there. USDZ was developed by Pixar for the exchange of whole scence with animation paths and objects. Its an open standard, that is being implemented by more and more programms. I hope Vectoworks is also working on it. There are already a couple of threads here about it. Regards!
  14. IIRC Nemetschek Allplan works in that way. Each design layer is basically a seperate file. Makes for easier team work, BUT if you switch from one layer to another you loose the redo history, which is a pain in the a*** in my opinion.
  15. I don't want too celebrate early but 🥳
