    Trouble with simple 3-d

    Your objects aren't far away from the origin are they? I had a file that was not showing some objects and it was an origin issue. As soon as I centred the origin on the objects, it started behaving correctly.
  3. Can someone please explain what is happening with the sketch render styles when using the railing/fence tool? The railing/fence tool does not seem to conform to the sketch style selected? Or is there something I am missing? Thanks Sketch Render.pdf Sketch Render.vwx

    Black & White Output in Open GL

    If we need to, we just convert the PDF drawing to greyscale using Adobe Acrobat. It's very quick and we don't have to worry about adjusting viewport settings etc.

    HVAC Ducting to Interior Model

    VectorMEP looks amazing. Be great if that was included in VW. Actually, there seems to be a lot of really useful tools being created by third party vendors that would be incredibly beneficial to have included as standard in VW.
  6. It actually only docks to the bottom or left hand side for me & not like the other palletes.
  7. It docks okay for me too on Windows.
  8. We gave up using them because of the delay.
  9. When we have issues like this, a quick - but not beautiful fix, is to extract the surface and apply the surface texture. Then put this on a specific class which can be turned off everywhere except where the surface is visible. You also have to move the surface out from the wall a fraction. We find it works well for the occasional surface fix.
  10. In 2018, we have to live with the issue where items often do not update on screen after being moved etc until the screen is refreshed in some way. Has this issue been resolved in 2019 SP3?
  11. Hi Mark Can you elaborate on what the issues are with the section viewports? We were thinking of upgrading to 2019, but might not now as we use section viewports a lot. Thanks
  12. @line-weight We are doing the same as you. Staying with 2018. There just seems to be far too many issues with 2019 to risk upgrading. We were going to upgrade when SP3 comes out, but will more than likely skip 2019 altogether.
  13. Have you tried turning off the Number Lock on the keyboard?

    Sloping Floors

    We have also done this by creating a nurbs surface for say the bottom side, duplicating this and moving it up the required thickness, then using the Loft Surface tool to create a solid.
  15. Could you use Patterns instead of colours? We use Patterns for different grey tones, but they could be used for lines also. Just a thought.
