    without getting into every option, I see the same problem with Chauvet and Tomcat.

    @Rob Books I only went to experiment with these because they were mentioned here. I wanted to be sure they were behaving as I expected. Here are a couple of screen shots

    @Rob Books I'm seeing them in the VWX lIbrary, BUT when I choose one I get a monstrously complex error message.

    If you want to modify the truss, say make it blue, assign a texture in the Truss>Truss Class Definition. FYI, VWX folks, even though I just refreshed my libraries, I'm having difficulty accessing this truss library in the VWX Libraries, Only the VSS libraries

    When you insert a truss object with the insert truss tool and choose a symbol from the library, VWX adds several classes. Amongst them are Rigging>Truss>Simplified ad Rigging>Truss>Truss. The simplified class is a really simple box geometry meant for speedy navigation. The Truss geometry is in the Truss>Truss class. Turn that on and turn the Truss>Simplified off.

    Well, I don't know where you're looking. If you're simply rendering on a Design Layer you can go to the Navigation palette, Classes tab and turn the class off. Similarly you can go to Tools>Organization and the Classes tab and turn off there. If you're woking in a SLVP, you have to select the SLVP and then click the Classes button in the OIP and turn the class off in there.

    Renderworks texture preview different from actual result

    your results don't look like your preview. Are you texturing an object above?

    Turn off the class rigging-truss-3D-simple I my have the name wrong there, but it's close.

    Stamped Sheet Metal Louvers

    I think I would start by using the Loft with Rail tool to make one, duplicate as needed. Add the surfaces together, then use Shell Solid to get the thickness.

    Vision Meshshape

    If I understand what you're asking, you need to do and export ESC or MVR with just the objects you want visible.

    Please yes, as some type of option, It's not always the needed answer, but oh so very often

    Just curious, have you tried the grass texture?

    How do I export 2d elevations

    Sheet Layer Viewports.

    Led screen image

    Make the additional screens in other files and use DLVPs to bring them in, exclude the DLVPPs front he counts.

    VWX will not let me open student edition files.

    can you post the file?

    Renderworks blank

    Do the walls have a none fill?

    Renderworks blank

    There is a known bug in some versions of VWX where the render in a design layer will fail. Try creating a sheet layer VP and render there.

    Renderworks blank

    Os this on a design Layer?

    Texture on floor

    The Floor is a hybrid object, you're seeing the 2D part which cannot be textured. You can fill it with a hatch (to shows lines) or an image fill which might give you the results it sounds like you want.

    Working Plane Grips Not Appearing

    IIRC, you have to click on the center point to activate the grips.

    Renderworks & Spotlight - Stumped.

    My book https://www.routledgetextbooks.com/textbooks/9780415726139/ will take you through the process all within VWX. That said, having VWX Vision in your arsenal might help
