  1. A few years ago I worked on a project with roofs slanted at an angle so that the edges of the roof are not square to the angle of the roof. I was able to extract the actual size of the roof plane as a flattened form so that the run of the roof, the angles of the edges and the number and length of SIPS roof panels could be determined. I cannot remember the exact method I used and cannot repeat the technique in VW 2019. Unfold surface does not work on a roof form as it is not a developed curved form. I have tried extraction, ungrouping then extracting surface, converting to 3D polygons in top view and iso, converting into nurbs then extracting etc etc. A screen shot of the roof is attached Does anyone know how to extract a roof plane from a roof object in VW 2019 so that the shape reflects the actual run of the roof.
  2. The new iPad Pros, just released at the end of October, 2018, apparently are faster than many laptops. Is there any news of Nemetschek working on a version of Vectorworks for the iPad that has full, or near to full, functionality ? Not just mark up and measure and change views etc as in Nomad. Would other people like to see a functional VW version for iPad?

    Windoor schedules

    I just got this from Julian Carr of Ozcad who made Windoor Might help others too. It is likely you are using design layer viewports and the schedule is counting objects in these too. You can fix it this way. 1. Open the worksheet for editing and choose Database Headers from the Worksheet's View menu. 2. Right click in the very left cell with a single number beside a little diamond and choose Edit Criteria. 3. Uncheck the two boxes that refer to Design Layer Viewports, then click OK. This will exclude objects in these viewports. The worksheet should now update correctly.

    Windoor schedules

    HI I use Windoor for my windows and doors. I have generated a Windoor schedule with images but it keeps creating a schedule with 3 copies of each window object. Each Windoor object has the plan and elevation ID switched on. I experimented with switching those off in case the program was counting the object and the 2 ids resulting in 3 copies. It still came up with 3 copies. Has anyone else had this problem and was able to solve it? Ta PS I just got this from Julian Carr who makes Windoor Might help others.
