  1. Maybe try this: uncheck the 3D geometry in the export dialog, must be on the right side then choose "Export Viewports as 2D Graphic in Model Space"
  2. Check your work space, you can find it in extras..i think on the bottom. change there to another one and see if that makes it better.
  3. Could be file related, check for yourself,...opoen the vex-file with the notepad or editor..there is a lot of stuff that doesn't make any sense...of course, but the first line shows you which version this file was created and which version this file is now handled. For example you are working with 2017 so the version is 22.0, so if it was created with something like 20.0(Vectorworks 2015) or earlier, the problem might be there. Resetting your user folder also might help sometimes. Is your graphic card driver up2date?
  4. Try changing the performance from best compatibility to best performance ..there are 3 options, just change this and see what happens. also your 750m might be not powerful enough.. this card from 2013. How many gig ram does it have? you also might want to check for the this cabinet /application support/nemetschek/2017 ...just change the name, vectorworks will generate a new one with the next start. you have to access the library..hold down alt when you are in the finder go to menu. you won't loose anything by changing the name, later on you can copy things when ur missing them.
  5. Thanks for the tipp! I altes search for "freebies" and add what I need, like 3D Modell or texture and there you'll find a lot of stuff. Here is some free stuff, very high quality: https://www.rd-textures.com. >>> Awesome 0_o https://www.viz-people.com/free-stuff/ https://cgelves.com/freebies/ https://www.toolfarm.com/blog/entry/freebie_3d_mayangs_free_texture_library Also check for C4d Material Packs...you can import them in Vectorworks.
  6. no, but you can go with the c4d export if you own a copy of maxon's cinema4d and here you have all the options. I am going to wish for that because I think it would be a good thing for all of us.
  7. This problem is already reported as a bug. Hope they'll fix it for the next episode ;-)
  8. Hi jmanganelli, I guess no, but you could have a look at Artlantis. Vectorworks has a export just for this program and it can create stunning images. Why..this question can only be answered by someone from the staff. @dinga if you want to speed up things, cpu + ram is the way you can go. otherwise you can start splitting up the image. If read that you can decrease the time by chopping the image up into smaller parts, so the overall process is faster than rendering the picture in one go. If you have a ServiceSelect contract, you could use the cloud for this ;-) > upload your project with everything setup, you'll get a PDF with your rendering back. OpenGL > GPU (max. 8 lights) HiddenWireFrame > CPU Have a good start ya'll!
  9. Thanks for all your comments! I'm going to report this as a bug, because it is a very handy tool that should work propperly. have a great weekand y'all!
  10. Yes, I did both. Because it is not working when it is not a NURBS-Obj.
  11. thank you!
  12. Hi there, lately I am working a lot with the tool "unwinding plane" (don't know how it is called in english). I encountered, that if it is a cylinder, everything is fine, but if this cylinder has something cut out, the plane is a little off on every side. Sometimes visible without zooming in. So the problem is, I want to send this data to a laser cutter and it has to be a 100%. Could someone explain why this is happening? To me it is a more or less simple mathematical thing like pi*D. If you want to test it on your on, just create a cylinder and another one where you cut out something. I used that same cylinder just flipped it 90degrees. Thanks in advance!
  13. Maybe I could send you that graphic(I made it) and you can print it yourself. Currently there are none left...
  14. May this could help: go to your Vectorworks 2017 folder > information > safety and add for the folder the same security level as the administrator, therefore vectorworks has a go with all the executables. this is sometimes a problem. another thing could be, reset your user folder. just add an additional character, you don't have to delete it. When vectorworks is starting againg, it will create y new one by itself.
  15. Hi there folks and friends, at the moment, i am checking different ways on how to get a correct LED light, here you see my test file: rendering with a glowing material makes the render a bit quicker, but i don't have that photometric light that comes with an ies file. so waht is your suggestion on an LED-stripe that you can buy from OSRAM and so on. The one's you attatch on the lower side of your kitchen furniture or tv shelf. Like use a ies-file and use a lot of lights in a row? Is there a passibility to use ies-files with arealights? or line lights? Really looking forward to your comments on this one, and thanks in advance!
