  1. Terrain Model with paving is still a problem. File size 40Mb and waiting after each command minutes to do the next step. This is something VW should improve really soon...

    Railing/Fence Tool

    Absolutely for stairs and for the terrain model as well!

    Twinmotion Plugin + Sync

    Please find enclosed some Lumion 9 renderings based on VW 2018. I'm still waiting for a Vectorworks LiveSynch as well for Lumion 9. So, please keep on asking this topic at the Lumion Forum (Lumion has to program that plugin): https://forum.lumion.com/index.php! --> WE NEED PLEASE A LIVE SYNCH FOR VECTORWORKS! twk: The new realistic sky and the grass is amazing in Lumion 9 (must do some renderings as well....)
  4. Hello, it would be very helpful to have the possibility within the terrain model to add or subtract 3D objects (e.g. cube...) directly from the terrain model. There should be a function to create 3D objects with already implemented modifiers... Please consider this within the next updates!!? Thank you in advance! Nik
  5. Hello, it would be very helpful to have something like Sketchup Placemaker,for VW! Thank you and best regards Nik
  6. Hello, is there any VW plugin available like Sketchup Placemaker, or Infraworks or something like Worldmashine to get any terrain/landscape map into VW!? Thank you and best regards Nik
  7. What I found out in the meantime is the following: Twinmotion is possible with Windows and Mac. Lumion only with Windows but on a Mac with Bootcamp as well. Grafik Card must be even better with Twinmotion compared to Lumion. Price for Twinmotion is compared to Lumion cheaper, but much less 3D objects and additional charge for e.g. flowting license etc. Twinmotion uses unreal engine, Lumion has its own engine and therefor independent in further development ... My personal opinion is that I am very happy with Lumion and it is my first real "intuitiv" program (just watch some youtube tutorials). Would be even better if we get a live sync with Vectorworks. Nevertheless it depends on your personal needs and your own workstyle... Hope this helps!
  8. Please find endlosed a comparison: https://letsdesignstudios.com/twinmotion-2018-vs-lumion-8-0/
  9. Very nice, thanks for supporting this topic! Enclosed one of my first VW and Lumion Projects I did: Vectorworks and Lumion | City District Park
  10. Would be very helpful if VW would start working with LUMION. Sketch up, Archicad and Revit have already a model sync in LUMION - VW should work with them to get one as well. This would open up a lot of opportunities. Thank you in advance! LUMION Fast Rendering for Architects LUMION Projects
  11. Hello, I tried several times to do a street on a terrain model and for me it is very complicated, actually impossible to get an acceptable result. I have seen some videos with Revit as well as with SketchUp, were it is at least somehow possible to do it... It would be very helpful and beneficial if the landscape experts from Vectorworks could improve this tool for streets, like it works with trees and other objects (to send the objects to the terrain surface) in VW altready. Thank you in advance and best regards Nik
  12. Hello, it would be very helpful to have the opportunity to export a Vectorworks 3D model into a Sketch up file. Allplan, Archicad and soem others are already able to do that... Thank you in advance! Nik
  13. Thank you, I know that. For me and a lot of others I guess it would beneficial to move parts in the direction I want to move it. Side view just Z-axes, Top view x and y. 3D view x, y and z. Would be quiet easy....
  14. Okay thank you! I see this problem must be communicated to VW maybe 2000.000.000 times or more to solve it ,-) It is completely nonsense that an object will be moved in side view other than in z-direction...
