  1. Renderworks is great and I use it all the time but I still had more realistic renderings years ago when I used Sketchup with the many rendering add-ons that were available. It would be nice to take it to the next level with software like Enscape which is only available for VW on PC and I'm on a Mac. But anyone on PC should give it a go, they have a free trial.

    Sheet List

    And yes, I tried "recalculate"

    Sheet List

    I just tried creating a sheet list for the first time and it works great, but why does it not update when I change sheet names or add / delete sheets? Anyone?
  4. I can't change the direction of the transom slope above this door without changing the swing of the door. Anyone have a fix for this?
  5. Hmmm, I don't have that option
  6. Does anyone have a tip on how to align slab textures with slabs that are on an angle? See attached.
  7. Turns out it was just a setting that I missed, though now I can't remember what that setting actually was...
  8. I'm not that well versed with referenced files but I'm trying to separate the interior design sheets to a separate file with the original house file referenced and the plan viewport isn't displaying in 2D even though all the VP settings are the same. Does anyone know the solution to this?
  9. VE4, agreed. Well summed up. Dark what? Makes me think of MS DOS Autocad in the mid 90s.
  10. Thanks, @inikolova, I can't wait to try it!
  11. Hi @inikolova Thank you for listening to my dreams and wishes! Skip the image markers if they are limiting, I thought about it and it would be easy to place a couple of markers in scale on the model and in real size on site to solve the positioning. The surface works for a flat floor but if I eventually want to place a house on a site, chances are it's not a flat surface or my have vegetation, etc. Another way might be to link it to a camera view so the AR user could stand at the same spot to launch the model (I do this all the time with photoshop illustrations) and the model would launch in the right position and distance relative to the user, then it could be fine-tuned by eye. Not sure if any of this is possible but I'm more than happy to help you in any way I can to make science fiction a reality!
  12. I'm excited about Nomad AR but it seems very limited in file size and more of a novelty at this point, only working with small objects and scaling / positioning "by eye". The technology seems to be there to make it more powerful and user-friendly, thinking back to an app called "String AR" I used to play with with my kids back in 2011 where all you had to do was print the pattern on a sheet of paper and point the app at it, see attached Youtube video. If there was a way to incorporate the same tech with register marks between a 3D model and matching marks or story poles on a site, think of the possibilities for pre-vis!
  13. Has anyone built a worksheet to calculate unprotected openings?
  14. Is there a solution to hatches that sometimes rotate themselves 90deg from the texture when switching from render to hidden lines? And it's not consistent, some align and others don't. See attached shingles...
  15. line-weight, Not sure what you're implying... But after decades of 2D CAD and building 3D surface models separately, and now being able to combine the two into one, BIM definitely means something to me. How else should I have described this model? https://www.vectorworks.net/en-CA/architect/bim
  16. Thanks bcd, Brilliant. I like that idea. I'll give it a try.
  17. bcd, BIM model, if you don't know you should look into it, it'll change your VW life.
  18. Thanks rDesign, that would be my backup for sure. I was just hoping there was a magic export or something that would do it for me.
  19. I'm trying to bring a BIM house I have into another project as context in the 3D model, (neighbouring projects) and was hoping to convert the house into a simplified model to keep the file size down and even lose some of the detail if necessary. Does anyone have a process for doing this?
  20. I just updated VW yesterday and now when I try editing classes I get some serious lag when scrolling / clicking, etc. Anyone else having this issue?
  21. Nevermind... I figured it out...
  22. Has anyone come up with a way to build a corner opening slider with no post? Similar to the attached image. Obviously I can fake it with 2 sliding doors or windows if I want multi sliders but I'd also like the option of showing it open in 3D.
  23. In previous versions when publishing multiple drawings you could select all and right click to toggle all to black and white. Now with 2020 it seems you have to do them each individually. Seems like a step backwards.
  24. I agree with the comments, the new icons are very cartoony and bloated. The whole idea with icons is to have recognizability and now I'm searching for tools even though they're in the exact same position. At first launch of 2020 I actually thought my monitor had switched to a lower resolution. Definitely a big visual step backwards.
  25. ..... of course. I forgot that setting.... again. Thanks. However the other problem I run into with sections is keeping the interior door tags and window tags on the walls beyond, from viewing as well. My workaround has always been a combo of elevations overlaid with sections.
