    Interior Elevation Marker line

    UPDATE: machine restart has restored normal function of this tool

    Ps - how do you delete a duplicate post?

    Interior Elevation Marker line

    Have set up Interior Elevations, but they run through 3d objects. Have gone back to design layer to adjust section line. Usually, it's an easy operation to add vertices to the section line marker and make a staggered section line. Only try as I may, it doesn't seem to work. Any ideas?! If I click on the section line once (on design layer) I get blue handles. Twice, I get reshape tool (add vertex mode and move 'reshape handles') neither of which seem to do anything, as no 'reshape handles' are present...? It would be great to have some kind of a tool whereby if the line runs through 3d objects they get hidden

    possible to import 3D Objects made with Blender into VW?

    interested to hear how you get on!

    Scale Interior Elevation Markers

    You've most likely solved thie by now but if not...go to the marker on the design layer and change the two variables highlighted in the attached image. I hope you don't mind if I 'hijack' your post on a few interior elevation related comments/ queries which I wonder if anyone(/VW) has any view on/ remedy to. 1) VW default seems to be to generate a scale on the sheet layer elevation viewports (so you have to manually turn it of on each elevation on the sheet file if you don't want it to displayed - often the case for me). Is there another way? A tick box to turn this off early on in the process would save much editing of viewports. 2) The elevation marker is generated centrally justified (I'm yet to meet an architect/ designer places them that way - more usually left justified, sometimes right). Can this be set to default to the side? 3) The default elevation depth is very deep and in a large file can lead to lengthy waits while VW generates elevations(s). Can default be set to say, 1m, 5m 10m rather than what seems to currently be the depth of the building (through countless walls) to avoid the need to manually amend (by flipping between sheet and design layers)? All minor things in themselves, but add up to a considerable investment in time, especially when you have multiple 10-20 drawing sheets each with 4 elevations to set up!

    Hi, Have you tried .obj export from Blender, then import into VW? Mark

    ...an indication of turning circle may be useful for space planning purposes too!

    VW 2019 mTextur import texture

    I've only looked at the Forbo textures which seem pretty good (one of the ranges I wanted was missing though). The biggest challenge I find using textures in VW (apart from finding a good image for the product you want in the first place) is setting the scale right. Some Manufacturers (see image) show an 'image size' on their website, which really helps.

    VW 2019 mTextur import texture

    The issue it seems is to do with a corrupt windows 10 profile; on a new profile Mtextur works...and it works really well.

    VW 2019 mTextur import texture

    still having this issue - any ideas, anyone?! Possibly one the most useful vectorworks functions of late and I can't get it to work! Really frustrating.

    VW2019/ Switching between drawing windows/ tabs - a VW bug?

    Hi, This issue has just reoccurred. Can't seem to recreate it at will unfortunately. Multiple drawing windows are/ were open (in this case 4 or 5) and some of the drawings open were converted from older VW versions at some point. Nothing remarkable otherwise. M
  13. A really useful function in VW I find is the ability to have two/ multiple versions of a drawing open and being able to copy and 'paste in place' between them; great for producing option drawings. However, slight annoyance is that in use, this function often ceases to work. I'm pretty sure there's a bug here, so you end up with the working window selected but any drawing/ editing is implemented on the 'non-selected' window. Anyone else getting this? Work-around is to close and re-open VW or create symbols and import, but all very inconvenient in comparison to simple copy and paste function. PS - I'm on latest service pack

    Plug-in object (door) rendering...

    For any Vectorworks Forum users following this post, the problem was tracked to a corrupt class. Remedy was to delete the class, moving any objects onto a newly created class.

    no, flush (with vp)
