  1. 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....
  7. 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...

    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....)
  10. 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
  11. Hello, it would be very helpful to have something like Sketchup Placemaker,for VW! Thank you and best regards Nik
  12. 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
  13. 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!
