  1. Hello, it would be wonderfull to have in Vectorworks the function like in SketchuUp to edit dynamic components. See movie on 2:34: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T10liEU0y1c&t=7s Thank you in advance! Nik
  2. @Jim Wilson Would be nice to improve VW further: some kind of similar Sketchup Plugin called Oob terrain (https://extensions.sketchup.com/en/content/oob-terrain) New drone video (VW to Lumion):
  3. Hello Amorphous, Lumion works with Mac and Bootcamp as well. The only thing you should consider is a proper graphic card. I work with an iMac and a Windows Laptop. Recognizing the last years VW and Apple vs. VW and Windows I will invest most likely more and more in windows based hardware. The same is valid for other programs. Yes Apple computers have still a nice design, but thats it... (one iMac for the office looks good ;-)) If you compare the the performance data in relation to the price you get for 2/3 of the price a windows machine with 50% more power.
  4. Thank you that VW supported the LiveSynch with LUMION. It is absolutely fantastic and improves the process of designing dramatically. WELL DONE!

    This is fantastic, thx! https://support.lumion.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016412674-Download-Lumion-LiveSync-for-Vectorworks
  6. Great! Just waiting for the German VW SP3 Version... https://support.lumion.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016412674-Download-Lumion-LiveSync-for-Vectorworks
  7. Hello, one of my strongest wishes is to dramatically improve the VW terrain model! It would be very helpful if we would be able to add and subtract 3D objects directly from the terrain model. Or even flatten the surface with a square within a defined area. Push or pull it down/up. Put a stair on the terrain and it will be integrated. Put a fence on the terrain and it will follow. Pavements following the terrain up and down, left and right. (with the current street tool it is somehow possible, but still not satisfying) Some setting adjustment for the angle of the terrain triangle structure --> to smooth the edges of the triangle structure etc. Thank you in advance! Nik

    Import SketchUp 2018

    +1 and we need an export option for the sketchup dataformat as well (e.g. with Allplan it is possible)

    What I did so far: Reset of the user folder. Problem with viewport was solved, but to edit the plan head was still a problem. Next was to go into the VW updater and I pushed the repair button. Until now it works, I hope it remains stable....

    My topic was that VW does not work after creating a viewport! This belongs to VW 2019 SP2 R1 in combination with Mojave 10.14.2. I guess the Mojave ...2 might be the issue!? Since this update I have these problems. VW 2018 works. Windows Laptop with VW 2019 works as well!

    Starting 2019 it is pretty moderate. VW does not work after creating a viewport!!!? I can't understand that VW 2019 still does't work with Mojave! Sorry guys it is already 2019....
  13. 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...
