    Help with Chimney

    As Line-weight has mentioned, we always end up drawing these things twice, or the other method we use it to extract the surfaces of the object to get rid of the unwanted join lines in elevations. Only problem is, if the object changes shape or location etc, you have to remember to update all of the items used to create the object including any extracted surfaces.

    Heliodon shadows not working

    We have had this issue a few times. Deleting the Heliodon and inserting a new one fixed it.
  3. Is this fixed in VW2018 SP5? 3D Loci not showing up where they should in SP4. We are not upgrading to 2019 until at least SP3 or SP4 due to all of the bugs identified in this forum. We understood 2019 was to be a quality focused release, but it appears to be anything but unfortunately.

    Wall End Cap

    Thanks Jim, seeing what you have highlighted showed me what I was doing wrong. I was selecting one wall lining and then clicking at the end of the wall rather than the lining on the other side. Simple. Can't believe I didn't try that, been bugging me for a long time...haha

    Wall End Cap

    Hi Wes. I'm still having no luck. The wall style in the file you sent had the 'join capped' set to off. Even if I turn that on, I still can't get the cap to show without a line. What I am doing is - After selecting the wall cap tool, I am clicking once on the lining component, then on the end of the wall. The cap appears fine, but with that errant line? I tried adding a cap on the other end of the wall you sent me with the same result.

    Wall End Cap

    Perfect. Could you please re-attach in VW2018 format? Thank you. Which mode did you use & was it a one-step process?

    Wall End Cap

    Hi. Can anyone tell me how to add a wall end cap without a rogue line appearing? See image attached. The rogue line appears in a hidden line render in 3D which is unwanted. It may be user error but I have tried using the various modes of the tool. Thanks.

    VP Open GL fixed in 2019

    What is need is a proper grid line that shows up on plan and section/elevation with a standard grid line marker. We have been using 3D polygons for showing grid lines in section for some time, but only using them a guidelines, and then annotating over with the correct line type & turning the guide grid lines off.

    Wall tolerance

    These lines could also be the corners of walls adjoining the exterior wall. Check that you don't have any instances like that, otherwise the lines will always show.
  10. Hi We don't open the database directly, but edit it using the Notes Manager within the callout tool. From what I understand, the database is formatted very specifically and you would have to be very careful not to mess up the specific formatting to ensure it still works correctly.
  11. We have done a lot of roofs like this, and it is just a matter of working out the roof plane direction and pitch. You can create a 3D object of the roof plane first to work out both of those.

    Enhance break line tools

    Thanks Matt, that works a treat for covering unwanted linework etc. How hard would it be to enable lines to be trimmed or extended to the break line?

    favoured window schedule workflows

    Agree, each year goes by and the same 'basic' wishes are repeated by the users. And these are fairly fundamental tools for an architectural practice - A Window Schedule!

    Enhance break line tools

    2004, Wow, that's ridiculous. Some of these seemingly 'minor' improvements would make a big difference to the everyday use of the software. I still would prefer the upgrading of functionality of all of the existing tools rather than adding new 'flashy' tools with each new VW release.

    Enhance break line tools

    It would be good if the break line acted like any other line too, so you could trim or extend lines to it.
