  1. Thank you both. I've outsourced my drafting for several years and the last time I tried this it "just worked." I'm not sure if my drawing border was deprecated or replaced.
  2. This is running in VW 2020 SP6 (Build 580724) on Mac OS 10.15.7. Revision shows up in Title Block Manager but doesn't display on Sheet Layer in Title Block. revision example.vwx
  3. Will do, but it will take some time to isolate the particulars. Thanks for your help!
  4. Alan, Sorry for not posting sooner, but here's the "1:1 Scale Model," in progress and complete. Thanks for your help!
  5. Hello, I'm using a standard title block (US Arch NCS) and am able to create a revision through the title block border settings, but nothing shows up in the title block. See attached.
  6. Legacy custom stair tool! Much more useful than the current tool, IM(H)O. Allows for unlimited # of flights and landings, custom configurations.
  7. That's it, thank you Alan! Depending on the circumstance, it seems easier either to use a script that takes NURBS as an input (allowing the user to manually position them) or to use an earlier version of the script that takes polylines and a numeric position for each as the input (which makes small adjustments of position easy from within the script.) On the earlier shelving example, it was quite easy for the resultant curve to crash the contour portion (when the curb doubled over itself, for example) so I spend time, trial and error, moving the middle curve up and down. Fun!
  8. Alan, My apologies. The example file is derived from my design file, which became corrupted somehow. If someone wants to sort out why you can't change contour direction, that's great, but here's a working version. bench.vwx
  9. Alan, Funny you should offer! I'm trying to turn this toward designing a bench and can't seem to change the direction of the contours (I'd like them to run in the Y direction in plan view.) Also weird, when I tried to put the script above into my main design file in VW, it changed the direction of the contours and I couldn't adjust it, so I had a separate VW file, working properly, to generate the geometry and I pasted it into the other file. parametric_bench.vwx Here's one more perceptive of the studio.
  10. The other two were views of the iterations of shelves - glad I didn't do it manually! The process was really quite subtle; small changes make a big difference in the result and/or crashed the script after lofting a curve that couldn't be contoured. I updated my post with screenshots instead of pdfs so the images appear inline. Now I need to build this! Thanks again!
  11. Alan, It's taken a lot of time, and much more fiddling, but I finally got a result I like. Thank you so much for your assistance. I'm happy I automated this process because it took quite a few tries to get the desired result. Regards, Graham
  12. I looked for such a regulation in the US, and didn't find one. Odd that VW would "cook in" one code regulation (even with "use max/min values" unchecked this limit remains) but allow one to make stairs with rises and runs that are non-compliant, for example. I think they should leave this value at the discretion of the designer too. Thanks for the suggestions. I actually brought back the custom stair tool from the legacy workspace and it did this just fine.
