    Drape Surface

    Excellent, thanks. Regarding the level, that is the actual height of the site. Brett

    Drape Surface

    I Can't get the drape surface command to work on a DTM. The dialogue box doesn't appear, just says drape surface failed. The file is attached - any help appreciated. On another DTM, the drape surface command runs, but the surface created has no height? Thanks

    Missing Icons

    Thanks, that seems to have sorted it :-) Cheers Brett
  4. Hi My Vectorworks has just started missing the icons on a library file of hatches. It doesn't seem to be happening on any other library files. See attached screen shot. I've tried removing the library file & re-adding, & restarting the computer - No difference. Others in the office have this file loaded as a resource and the icons appear fine. Any ideas? It's hard to use without being able to see the hatch patterns. Thanks

    Wall Peaks

    Hi This seems like a basic question. Once you have used the fit walls to objects command, what is the best way to reverse this & get the wall back to how it was before this command was run? Thanks

    Hidden Line Shadows

    Thanks for the replies. A hidden line with shadow option would be great. Brett
  7. What's the best way to create hidden line elevations with shadows? Thanks Brett

    3D Polygon

    Thanks Mike, that works a treat. Brett

    3D Polygon

    Hi Ray I tried the push pull, but it only seems to extrude perpendicular to the surface, not vertically. Unless I'm missing something? Cheers Brett

    3D Polygon

    We have a 3D polygon that we want to extrude vertically, but it only seems to extrude perpendicular to the slope of the polygon. Is there a way to extrude it vertically? And is there a way to combine 3D polygons in to a solid object? See attached file. Thanks

    Wall Join

    Excellent, thank you! Brett

    Wall Join

    I can't seem to get the wall cores to join. See attached. Any ideas? Thanks
  13. I may be wrong, but I haven't yet seen a way to get the tops of the walls sloped to match the roof slope - like your sketchup model. The walls that are running perpendicular with the slope have 'flat' tops, so you end up with a messy junction with the walls running up the slope which fit nicely to the roof slope. Can anyone verify that? Our office would love to be able to specify whether the tops of walls are 'flat' or sloped to match the roof. Thanks

    Viewport Wireframe

    Thanks, that's fixed it. Appreciate your help Brett

    Viewport Wireframe

    Fantastic, that's all it was. Simple. Any clues on why the site model is showing triangulated? Cheers
  16. Hi One of our staff has an issue when annotating hidden line section viewports. The viewports are rendered in hidden line, but when the annotations are edited, the viewport switches to wireframe. When the annotation is exited, the viewport reverts back to hidden line. This doesn't happen to me, so not sure what is causing this behaviour? Also, the Site model on the section viewports, shows a lot of triangulated lines. How do you stop this happening? Thanks
  17. When you select a section line marker you get a "Navigate to Section Viewport" option in the Object Info. palette. It would be good if there was the same 'reverse' option to go back to the section line marker from the viewport. Currently there is no quick way of seeing which layer the section was created on - unless we have missed something - which is quite possible. Thanks
  18. Thanks Benson, so simple, all these years using VW & I didn't know the shift key did that... Awesome
  19. Hi One instance is where you have a solid filled or hatched area with some objects on top but within this area. You want to draw a marquee around those objects but you can't because the first click of the marquee selects the filled area. If you could suspend snapping for the first marquee click, then the filled area wouldn't be selected. That's one example that comes up regularly. Brett

    Site Sections

    I just mirrored a site section & the text mirrored too, even with adjust flipped text preference selected. I've never seen this happen before now.

    Site Sections

    Here's an image. This was happening in VW2013 too. Thanks
  22. Hi Benson Thanks, the behaviour is as you described. "Snap suspension does not defeat the Select tool's ability to select". I would have thought with no snaps turned on, then you wouldn't be able to snap or select anything. Not sure about how others would prefer it, but I'd like this added as a preference so that snap suspension actually suspends all snapping & selecting. Thanks for the reply. Brett

    Site Sections

    Whenever I cut a section through a DTM, I get the correct section, but it always has a mirrored copy. Is this how it is supposed to be? I'd like to attach an image but I can't see how? Thanks Brett
  24. Hi Jim The palette does grey out. It only seems to be the selection tool that is still able to snap & select objects even with the pallete greyed out. With other tools, when you press the ` button, you can't snap to anything, which is ideal. Thanks Brett
  25. Be good if the suspend snapping worked with the Selection Tool. Even with the ` key pressed, it still snaps to objects. Thanks
