    Plumbing Schematics

    Thanks Ron We have considered using EAP, that would work, but this isn't that user friendly either and I suspect would take just as long as our current method. Would be good if there was a tool for this. Cheers
  2. Hi No, we usually add insulation in the annotations, unless it's a layer of say PIR insulation which has a hatch.
  3. This is great and also how we approach roofs. We don't use a single roof face with components, but model the individual members eg rafters, purlins, roofing, flashings etc. This makes the model accurate and also the elevations and sections don't need too much tidying up in the annotation space, if any. Would love it if the roof tool could show actual materials like tiles, and include ridge and hip flashings etc. Also the wall tool needs to show cladding/siding materials.
  4. Just wondering how others are drawing 3D plumbing schematics? We have been using the HVAC tools, but they aren't overly user friendly. They don't automatically join, the vertical ducts can't be dragged to change their height, there are no falls on the straight ducts etc etc Any improvement on this would be welcomed. Thanks
  5. Will definitely look into using this technique! Obviously making changes to the wall or roof will require more work to redo the array.

    Update DLSVP

    Update all might work, but as Pat says, this will update all of the viewports that don't need updating and could take a considerable amount of time, plus it's another step to have to remember to do. Be good if the 'update out of date viewports' worked in embedded viewports too. Might add a wishlist item. Thanks
  7. I have some design layer section viewports, which are then viewported on to sheet layers. When publishing, even though update out of date viewports is ticked, these design layer section viewports do not get updated and I have to go to the design layer first - update the viewports, then publish. Is there a way to automatically include these DLSVP's when publishing? Thanks
  8. When typing in the OIP class or layer box, VW starts searching as you type, which is great. I would love the same functionality when typing in other palettes, especially the Navigation Palettes. Having to hit enter/return is slow compared to how the OIP works.
  9. Hi Tom I just tried adding a texture to a framing member using the render tab, and it seemed to accept a texture fine. Brett
  10. When using the data tag to label space objects on section viewports, only the space objects that the section cuts through should be selectable when using the 'select single object mode'. Space objects beyond the cut plane should not be selectable.

    Spaces

    For anyone interested, it seems to work better if you give the space object a height & tick the "display 3D" box.

    Spaces

    I tried that, but it still selects the space beyond the cut plane. To get it to work I temporarily shifted the space beyond so that it wasn't in the same plane as the space I wanted. But this is a hassle and it takes 3 times as long as it should.

    Spaces

    Hi Just started using Data Tags with section viewports to name all of the spaces. There are multiple spaces on each floor but what I am finding is the data tag doesn't always pickup the space that the section viewport cuts through, and often selects a space that is beyond - if that makes sense. When there are multiple space objects how do you go about selecting the correct one? Thanks
  14. On most projects we end up using a number of unstyled walls to allow for the odd variation in wall thickness or lining. When will it be that we can also see the selected cladding or roofing shown in section? eg weatherboard profiles, roofing profiles etc?
