  1. I often resort to putting a mask over the walls using the extract surface tool to fix up the misaligned textures. This works, but it's a hassle when things change as you have to redo it.
  2. Also, a big one for us. An improved method for aligning textures on walls, roofs etc.
  3. Are there still Lag Issues with 2020?
  4. I might have missed it, but one feature we love about the Framing Member tool is the 'Show ID' option. We can't see that option for the Structural Member tool. Please can this option be added to the Structural Member tool, then we might start using it. Thanks
  5. 2021 Wishlist, along with the other items listed above, The ability to have slanted walls. Grid lines (and floor level lines) that show up automatically on elevations and sections
  6. Update. This 'feature' already exists using the clip cube on a design layer, so all good.
  7. Can we please have an additional feature added to the clip cube on design layers. The ability to cast shadows of objects removed by section. This ability is available on a sheet layer viewports created from the clip cube but it is also required on design layers.

    Brilliant. Just tried that and it works well. Thank you!

    I would like to do a solar animation exactly like described in the original post. Open GL is fine. So this can be done? If so, what are the steps to make the roof/ceiling cast shadow but not be visible? Thanks

    Is this possible now in VW2019. To have the section viewport show shadows as if the clipped geometry is still there?
  11. We noticed this change in behaviour from VW2018 to VW2019. In 2018 you could just move the cursor anywhere outside the window and it would scroll. Now in 2019, you have to be very precise. Prefer the 2018 behaviour.
  12. When selecting a resource like a hatch or line type etc from the Attributes Palette, if a resource is not available or suitable, it would great if there was a button to create a new resource. Like there is at the bottom of the Resource Manager.
  13. It would be great if the Notes Manager: Callout palette had a search function so you could search for a note in the database by a keyword.

    Project Sharing

    We have given project sharing another try after deciding to not use it some time ago and we have been pleasantly surprised how much better it is working. Just one question, there is an issue when deleting objects. Even just deleting 1 line, there is approximately a 2-3 second delay while the program says 'waiting for project file'. Why does this happen when we are working on a locally saved 'working file'?

    Project Sharing

    Thanks Christian, good idea to check out whole design layers. Will also review our network connection! 🙂
  16. Maybe in 2020????? Please.

    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.
  18. 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.
  21. It actually only docks to the bottom or left hand side for me & not like the other palletes.
  22. It docks okay for me too on Windows.
  23. We gave up using them because of the delay.
  24. 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.

    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.
