  1. Perfect! Thank you You guys are great
  2. That amazing thank you. I was (and still am) creating a 3D presentation as such but I also need/want my 2D plans to look right too from the same model. I dont want to be doing things twice, although it does feel like that sometimes to get both 3D and 2D looking right. I will take a good look through the options above and have a play with it; as soon as I can get my Vectorworks to open that is! Thanks again
  3. Yeah that was my plan to mask over but thought I'd ask first incase there was a quick fix. Thanks for responding so quick.
  4. Do you know how I get rid of the window lines? Ive used the recess tool and then window tool, looks great in 3D but not so much in 2D Thanks
  5. Thanks really appreciate your help. Have a good day.
  6. Currently on my next cup! can't believe I got my lefts and rights wrong (hangs head in shame) Yours looks great, just what I need. All the points you mention I totally agree with and have been scratching my head as thought there was a simple way to do it and I was just missing it. Another thing with the splay is that it does this to the head also; as you see in my photo the head is flat!
  7. Thank you Christiaan I will give that a go.
  8. Hi Christiaan, here is a photo from the outside, window first floor far left
  9. Hi all, So I have a window where the opening is floor level but the cill is not.....how do I create this in 3D Vectorworks? Ive attached a photo of the window I'm trying to re-create & a screenshot of my 3D model. I find the 3D aspect of modelling far easier for new builds rather than existing where there are quirks and details that are fiddly; but I'm getting there and I am now enjoying using the 3D side of Vectorworks (at last!). Thank in advance.
  10. Hi I could be being a bit blind/stupid, but when looking through the awesome looking BIM Objects it seems most files aren't compatible with Vectorworks? I've seen so many impressive visuals created with Vectorworks 3D and wondering where those objects must come from? Any help greatly appreciated. Apologies if this has been brought up before - I did search but didn't find anything. Niki (attached screenshot of BIM Object finder for clarity)
  11. Hi all So I'm working on a plan say at 90° but while in the rotated view I cannot seem to selection certain items particularly with the eyedropper tool or visibility tool and mainly polylines! I'm guessing I have possibly changed a setting somewhere rather than this being a bug?
  12. Thank you for these. I look forward to reading through them and hopefully learning heaps.
  13. Thank you also for this information, very helpful
  14. Yep you are right, my apologies - I'm rushing things! You would think I would have spotted it with how big the screenshot was, must be home time Thanks, its all ok now.
  15. wow that image came out quite big, sorry!
