    3d Tiling please!

    There already exists a similar Marionette network for that. Maybe that could be adjusted for 3D. Haven't tried that yet.
  2. Hi, did you try holding the "alt"-key when you click on advanced options? I get some more options that way.
  3. I keep my excitement on the backburner for now. While I don't doubt the sincererity of the enigineers here. This teaser is really a "teaser". It's not showing how long it takes for the models to load to begin with and how fast the switching happens from 2D-Plan to 3D. That's where we experience a lot of friction. Especially now that we also have data visualisation in the design layer, I am more than suspicious about the promises of improved speed.

    Issue rotating object node

    What's peculiar is also, that the nodes inside the object disappear, except the wrappers.

    Issue rotating object node

    Other Marionette Objects. I have one that is summarising the floor area of apartments and it shows the same strange behavior. And it's super annyoing, that every time I have to change something in the object, it rotates the plan.

    Hi Marissa, thanks for the reply. Here is the file. Still can't figure out what's happening. Especially because it happens with other objects too. IssuesRotatingObjectNode.vwx

    Issue rotating object node

  8. Our local support advised us to use smb, because it's the recommended file protocol from VW Inc. With our setup of AFP via Acronis we are basically alone. No one has experience with that. We used to use smb, but it was even more probelmatic than afp. The connection to the server was very unstable.
  9. We are also not any further with a solution. Happens regularly but not to all users. We also are not using a quota for our users.
  10. That would be also useful if you you have a project with multiple buildings in different files. At the moment you have to enter this data multiple times.
  11. Yeah, we are very wary of the Vectorworks Cloud Service. While it provides some nice features, that we test with some unimportant files, we would not use it for our general projects. Being not sure where the information resides and who has jurisdiction over it. (Same goes for Google Drive, Amazon Cloud, Microsoft OneDrive, etc.) Recently there was a discussion here in Germany, that we need our own cloud services, because even if Microsoft or Amazon are promising to keep the data of german customers on german servers, the CLOUD Act still forces these providers to comply with requests form the american government to release information hosted abroad. And we have no way of knowing if our information was accessed and shared.

    Issue rotating object node

    Hi folks, maybe someone can help me out here. I've developed an object node that works fine so far in it self. The problem starts when I am working in a rotate plan. Changing the rotation of my object changes the rotation of my plan. Maybe I am approaching this all wrong! Thnx!
  13. I did. And I wish I could upvote it multiple times. So fed up with the current tool. ūüė≠

    Lookup from worksheets in text objects?

    Alternatively you could create a single worksheet for each apartment with a modified search criteria to only get the area without the individual rooms. Downside is that you have to create a lot of worksheets though.
  15. We also encounter this problem regularly. The only soultion I found so far is to change the criteria manually in the formula bar. It's also the only way to change an "&" criteria into a "|" citeria, or vice versa. Very annoying. With more and more focus on the "I" in BIM, we need to have more flexable and userfriendly ways of sorting and searching our necessary information. My colleagues always look with befuddlement at me when I am explaining theses things.
