    @gester Do you mean if you'r main BIM model file is drawing in location 0.000 and you want to export an IFC file / BIM model in real world co-ordinates for the design team to co-ordinate with Structural and MEP models? if so yes you can, the way we tend to do it is we create an 'intermittant' export file, which references in the BIM model as a viewport and locates it in Real World Co-ordinates, and from there on we export the IFC file. kind regards anton
  2. we have this issue on some files too. what was the solution in the end? kind regards anton
  3. Hi there, we are a large architect office that often work with 400 unit plus schemes, when are VectorWorks going to add a plugin symbol tool for custom geometry/symbols, such as apartment unit types (that repeat across a lot of floors and buildings for example), so that each individual apartment could get their unique flat number, which relates to the floor/building it is on, as well as allow individual numbering of doors and windows, kitchens, bathrooms etc, that is within that unit type? this is high on the agenda of useful, time saving tools that we as architects would very much welcome as part of any future updates etc. looking forward to hearing your thoughts. kind regard anton
  4. Hi Mark, unfortunately the trial version requires VW 2013 to be able to install it, we are on VW 2016-2018, so it won't even open up hm. I emailed the developer on his site, but no reply yet. kind regards anton
  5. great, sounds good. Looking at the webpage it seems only compatible with up to VW2015 however?
  6. Hi Markdd, Sounds fab ! Does this sequencer work with annotating Window numbers, while still keeping them as Window types / plugin objects? kind regards anton

    Window Numbers in Elevation shown behind glass

    hm, i see, maybe if you 'flip' the window? does this work? kind regards anton

    Repetitive Rooms, Symbols & Door Numbers

    Was there a conclusion to this? Would there be a way to show text/numbers for both 'Window Types' (for windows that are the same types), as well as 'individual window numbers' for each instance of such window, both in plan and elevation? Using plugin objects/windows? kind regards anton

    Window Numbers in Elevation shown behind glass

    I think if you use the windows as plugin objects, you should be able to look at them (in plan view) and simple drag the tag /name/number in front of the glazing, which hopefully should resolve your issue, at least it did for me (ones ;-) kind regards anton
  10. For large scheme development, I would suggest that standard practice for numbering of windows (and doors too), would be to use the following format: Bldg/Block (if more than one, say: A, B, C etc) - Window/Door (W/D) - Floor (01, 02, 03 etc) - Apartment number (01, 02, 03 etc) - Window/Door Number (01, 02, 03 etc), which would give you the below example: B-W-02-05-01 or W2-05-01 for short, or even W2.05.01 / W2.5.1 this makes adding / deleting windows (or doors) much easier later on if required. just a thought for a lovely grey Thursday ūüėČ Kind regards anton
  11. ingenious ! love the round wall batt tool !
  12. Could we have a Circular Insulation Tool, that would be really useful, for when we need to show insulation around pipes in plan views / sections for example. this would be extremely useful / helpful. A tool that would be easily adjusted to change thickness for the insulation, and adjust set-out points from either inner or outer perimeter / diameter kind of thing. Kind regards anton
  13. Project sharing walls randomly disappear, or shows up in one users Working file, and yet not in another users Working file (although both are refreshed and up-to-date). We have had a number of incidents where walls simply gone missing, randomly on different floors in our 10 stories bldg (currently being shared via project sharing and 4-5 users using it). For example it could show up in one users file, but not another, even though all refreshed and saved-committed etc. Other incidents have been where some symbols have updated fine to the latest updates someone made, but not other, i.e. some not being 'pushed through' to the project file even though saved and committed. Our workaround has been to save a new project sharing file from one of the users working files, but this delays/slow down the working process, and means spending a lot of time trying to find what / what hasn't updated / been pushed through. We are currently using VW 2017, is this something that has been corrected within the VW2018 sp3 ? kind regards anton
  14. Hi there, when is Service Pack 3 out for 2018VW ? kind regard anton
