    On the hunt for a concise intro. to stories.... Got the overall idea, but all seems so over complicated. Must be missing something...

    3DConnexion Mouse

    Hi, Looking to buy one of these...I see the thread is from a while back.....is it worth buying one? SpaceMouse® Compact https://www.3dconnexion.co.uk/spacemouse_compact/uk/
  3. It seems it sometimes isn't possible to select spaces when view is rotated.

    Turn off selected class..

    Thanks Mark, will have a go with that. Looks promising!

    Turn off selected class..

    Is there a quick/ easy way to turn off classes for example, in Revit you can select an object, right click and one of the menu items is something like 'hide in view'....

    Different colors on the same wall

    I find the following works well; 1 Draw 3d model 2 Create interior elevation viewports 3 Add colours in viewports by tracing 2d polygons and applying the colours you want 4 Group the polygons 5 Copy said polygons into model, rotate and place on 3d walls Been using 3d skirting plug-in too, which is great to get skirtings drawn on before you do the above.

    Fit to view..

    Hi, Thanks for advice. Managed to find it with some scrolling around once I turned the drawing border display on but issue persists if I fit to objects. I wonder if the drawing is corrupt or something as walls display rather strangely in open GL. I though it might be a graphics card issue, I've recreated the drawing and all works 100% as expected.

    Fit to view..

    In a recently created drawing, have selected 'fit to view' Now can't find the drawing. All classes & layers are displayed. Display set to Top/ Plan... Have Any ideas where it's gone/ how I find it?1 Thankyou!

    Really like this plug-in.....extrude along path works, but I think this plug-in is much easier to use! Worked well for skirtings, cornicing/ coving & dado.

    ...just downloaded the free 'frames' plug-in from AFDesign... https://andreafacchinello.wordpress.com/summary/ A very nice tool; simple, easy to use. Does exactly what you'd like it too - albeit I did have to look up the meaning of passepartout Definitely recommend it if you want to show artwork in 3d...will be checking out the 'baseboard' plug-in for sure!

    This tool looks fantastic!. Please can we get this integral to VW?!
  13. Really like the windows (and doors) tool in VW. A real time saving tool and well worth spending a bit of time to set up window styles. Brilliant to be able to quickly place basic windows and then add more detail as project develops. The representation and control of sash windows is very good, but a couple of a couple of questions: 1) Anyone know of a simple way to show the 'boxes' for sash weights to more accurately represent the windows? 2) Splay wall: I need chamfered opening to walls vertically. Unfortunately it splays the sill (or cill) too, which needs to be flat. Don't think I've ever seen a sloping window sill.. Any suggestions appreciated.

    VW2018 referencing one drawing into another....

    Thanks Tolu, Tried the non-scientific click things on and off and got it to work eventually and it's very good! I find my verbal reasoning lets me down when I read some of the 'help' dialogue information, eg this under 'automatically update out of date references during file open' option box (in 'edit preference'): Does this mean 'update resources during file open'? Maybe re-word the dialogue information and you wouldn't need the 'help' text?!

    VW2018 referencing one drawing into another....

    Thanks for the advice Tolu. Finding it rather over-complex to reference in files so resorting to copying in info. from other files. Is this a function that needs improving (or is it just me)?
