  1. What Vectorworks Architect need. No specific order. A 3D Roof. A real 3D Roof with 3D Roof components. Allplan do this. Archicad do this. Revit do this. Edificius do this. We need to close this gap. A door whit an emergency exit, misures and all the features we can find in a door tool. A wall who makes the wall, who can start from a thickness and finish whit another thickness. Whit them can I draw something built before 1960. Whit them can I put inside a windows who follow the different thickness. Think please a second about the HBIM. Scultpted wall isn't enough. Component in section mode who can be connected exactly like in plan mode. Grafically, whit 2 clicks. Not after doing 100 tests in separate wall and slab styles and whit 100 viewport updates. In slabs, walls, roofs, around the windows, like in reality. Everywhere. Actually the system don’t works well. The plan mode only works well. VW need exactly the same in vertical mode. How can we draw in detail? Think about 5Dimension BIM Door/windows-wall connection, which them I can manage it well. Where the 3D component going with the 2D component, not in 2 different ways like now. In plan view like in front view, like in section view. A completely rebuilding stair tool. Completely. A new tool. I started to draw in vectorworks in 2009 and is it the same stair, whit some improvement. Where it allows to manage the single steps in 2D, 3D, manually. Where I can manage a Stair from a simply polyline or polygon, and not to be "close" in 10 forme types. Where if I move a component it “talks” with slabs. It is a little bit strange to manage a Stair form and after that to manage the slabs separately. Where I can find a NURBS model. We need to close the gap whit Archicad. A curved curtain wall with curved glasses. Think about the infinite LOOP in Cupertino. And personally, I don’t care to have a new "dark side of the moon UI". I need to have a BIM software to draw Architecture first. I can work even in a pink-green monitor whit the right tools. Make Architecture great again, please. And have good work. Best regards.
  2. Hello Nikolay, thank you for explaining me how to convert a solid object to a usable space for energos.. that is the right way to adjust this specific question. After that.. the space tool with label, and all the the feature vw allows us to use, depending directly from the right volume. I think could be a good implementation, like adjusting wall height, to have a "adjusting space height", or something similar. Thank you for your responce. Best regards
  3. DId you know if VW allows us to adjust the volume for a Space? I mean non regular volume like under a roof
  4. Hello everyone, i confirm that you need to create some spaces to calcolate the right way to show in Energos. Heated Volume Space and dispersing surface are the 2 most important parameters in energetic calculation. So you need to have the right volume BUT I'd like to know how can i create a space from a non regular bottom top volume. For Istance: how can i have a specific space under a roof? Can i model a free 3D element and using it like a space? Sorry for that but if i can't manage a correct volume it's perfectly useless to have a complex (and very cool) tool like Energos, unless i have only perfect linear floor and roof. So you exclude every building over 1000 mt over the sea in the world. Missed I something? Can i modeling a space? Or adjust it automatically by a roof object? Like a wall?
  5. For complex situation or for rooms or other project’s parts, i am used also to create a large symbol. I can duplicate it in a different design layer, it’s easy to manage it for the presentation on sheet layer and viewports. but groups is a great method too, like creating specific views. there is some ways to the same goals, i mean
  6. Hello I managed to solve the problem after a while. We need to pay attention to two things: 1) good connection settings in style 2) the roof must be generated automatically from the wall selection. After that it's enough if you set the wall height up of the roof.. even manually. BUT.. there os another problem. How can I resolve this? I need to work on the stack component style between wall and slab to hide the grey element you can see on attachment
  7. Really? So if i want to have a section viewport on this door? Only without component or by modelling the entire door manually including component>making a simbol in a wall? Uff
  8. Hello everyone, could someone tell me how can I have a correct 2D-3D view about this door? I used the "door in wall" Thank you
  9. Thank you, i will take some time to learn.. 🙂
  10. Ok but for istance i checked the activity during an hidden line rendering for a viewport and the machine worked only with 100% processor load (with 800% maximum for a 4 core with 8 thread)
  11. Another important process for me is the windows or doors-style updating.
  12. Hello everyone, i would try to begin a positive conversation about the single core VW processes and all of the problems that comes for them For istance: i trying to render a viewport in hidden line mode, you can see on attached image that is almoust impossibile: the software is locked from 20 minutes without any results the system process show how memory and processor are exploited to a minimum it's the time to start thinking something different?
  13. You can simply say that either Autodesk nor Graphisoft can define if VW is a BIM sotfware or not. There is a list of certified BIM software, released from Building Smart international, and VW is one of the first softwares that achieved the certification for IFC 2x3 in architecture discipline, in 2013, architecture discipline (import and export). And one of the first to have IFC4. after that you can say that Marionette is integreted in VW a year before they forced their customers to buy Rhino and Grasshopper to do the same things. Finally, to make the peace you can say thay we dream every day their beutiful stairs. but here in Italy is the same think: they are nervous. I’m not nervous: i enjoy while i use VW, they should try it too. Z
  14. UP. Actually i’m working with a pointcloud. Different settings means different results. See the attachment, there is a facade. With 50 dpi you can see only the exterior, with 300 dpi everything looks like a section, and you can’t controle it in design layer because the quality is absolutely lower. It could be very useful
  15. Hello how about a complete VB list (maybe in crescent number order...) where the users can check a specific VB situation? For exemple i’m waiting to VB-147735 and VB-127356 but from these page can’t understand if they are fixed or not. But.. great work.. a very long list and new funcionality, like an half upgrade!
  16. I agree, included the possibility to import excel files to generate new render styles
  17. Hello everyone I'm working with a pointcloud and need to isolate some points to work in a section portion. Actually I can't snap a line during the process.. there is something don't work fine? Thanks
  18. Please zoomer show me the light beacause I'll be happy if I'm wrong :-D
  19. Not precisely. What we need is to manage the entire wall in creation phase. F.e creating a 3D model, free 3D model, convert it in a Wall, and add windows door etcetera. Or to set a different thickness from start to end. I know the projection command but you can't add a window and have a hole automatically
  20. Specifically in Italy and in rest of Europe is a very import issue to have thickness wall control. Every architect that comes from 2D draw and need to improvement the workflow switching to BIM ask us: "how can I create a variable thickness wall?". How about add this improvement to next vectorworks versions? Thanks
  21. I agree. A full multi-core processing could be a characteristic of the past, not a hope for the future. Just now is too late for a complete implementation. Try to use a windows style, a door style, to change a height from design layer to a wall style. Every click is 30 second. I hope really that engineers do miracles to fix this VW aspect. I think it could be the better impementation to the last 5-6 years. This one, a new wall and new stairs. Stop.
  22. Hello Egidoro. You can use Glow effects in a new texture render. Is very simple! You can create a new texture from Resource Browser, then apply a Glow texture and set the power of light. Then you can create some 3d object and create light. Attention: if you are used to work with visualisation palette, you can't see light object create with this texture type. So be sure you have a good class structure.
  23. Sometimes could be enough trying to regenerate the viewport
