  1. I have created a site model, and just want to drape the air photo over the site model, something i would do in sketchup. I can get the air photo to drape over the site model (sometimes) but the scale and location of that image is not correct. I have a simple exact area 1000m across and 2000m up, and i have an air photo that has been cropped to exactly 1000pixels by 2000pixels… I have read about and tried the ‘Attribute Mapping Tool’ but each time i use it i get inconsistent results. I get predictable results if i do this to an extruded rectangle, with the Attribute Mapping Tool, i can move it around etc... but not with the site model. Any ideas?

  2. True, but what i have is a series of lines that i have to give the length and angle for. Lines that i want to be an angle of 270 degrees are measuring 0. Another example a line that i want to measure 180 degrees is measuring -90.
  3. I am doing a survey plan, and measureing the angle of lines, i want 0 deg to be north, currently 0 is east. I am sure there is a way to change that, but i can't find it! any help out there would be appreciated. cheers, jim using VW design series 2015 on 2011 15" MBP

  5. Often with files from other CAD sources, there are duplicated lines in the exact location. Is there a way to select duplicates or erase duplicates? cheers, jim vw 2015 design series

    Dynamic object

    Could anyone point me in the right direction, document or tutorial... I want to have a symbol or object that i can drop on the drawing, and it is sized based based on a few variables the user can change. for example a table, that the user can enter the length and width...

    contour label

    I have created a site model, i want the index contours labeled. All that is labeled is the 0m contour? what am i doing wrong? please see attached... cheers, jim 15" mbp 2.2 ghz i7 16 gb ram VW design series 2014
  10. yes, but not really a solution. need to have annotations on multiple viewports and sheets. very frustrating... cheers, jim
  11. Please say this has a fix... i come across this a lot, i have a rotated view, and i can not use the collouts, they ONLY work when the view is NOT rotated. In the rotated views, they will not stay horizontal... any ideas? Jim VW 2014 design series - sp 4 MBP 2.2 - i7 with 16g ram with ox 10.9.3

    terrain model

    I have a fairly simple site, and created a terrain model from 3d ploys (contours) The generated contours look good and reasonably accurate, but in the 3D view, the terrain is inverted? The low points are high, and the high points are low... It looks inverted or mirrored. Again the contours are correct... any ideas? Jim VW 2014 design series MBP 2.2 i7 16 ram os 10 (Maverick)

    imported image

    Yes, the area i am working on is cropped by the viewports. But the file size of that pdf (just a portion of the overall) is huge. cheers, jim

    imported image

    I can covert to an image file, no problem. Do i really have to crop it for each area i want to plot... The project area is very large, and i bounce all over. cheers, jim
