    I would make the scenery a symbol and attach a data record with weight.

    Trying to simulate a laser beam

    So a VWX spotlight object with a really super narrow and hard beam with fog doesn't do what you want? Alternately, a custom Spotlight lighting device with a custom gobo?
  6. Well, I would save the original DTM, and you'll need a spare copy of the foundation, I would assume.
  7. Not my specialty, but can't you do a solid subtraction out of the DTM?

  11. I've seen this happen. I also wish I could readily open and edit the database. I had, for some time, and XML file and a TXT file

    how to create a knife bevel

    It's complex modeling, but I would use Sub-Division. You might able to do it with a series of Solid Subtractions, but it would be a challenge.

    What Nomad Does

    Use the Cloud menu in VWX to create an account or log in. You’ll need to set everything up to live in the cloud. Once Nomad has access to your work you can view models and PDFs of sheet layers. Amondst other fearures

    hybrid objects can only be rotated...

    Alternately, you can show the truss in a Design Layer Viewport and rotate the Viewport.
  15. Have you tried converting to Site Model from Source Data? I have not, but seems worth exploring. The Subdivision might have to be converted to a 3D Poly first, but...

    Textures and using hatch

    You can use a carpet texture in renderings, and you can make a stippled hatch.

    Turn off focus indicators

    I think this is either. bug or a new WAD, but Preferences, Display Tab. Set Display light object to never.

    mapping a decal onto 4 plasma screens

    The tool is in the Spotlight tool set. You can also purchase it as a stand alone. I've found it very valuable for a long time. Your solution does seem, to work, but I would show flat monitors on the wall for accuracy.

    mapping a decal onto 4 plasma screens

    Are they rally curved? Could you use the television tool?
  23. Are those 'walls' in sketchhup? I'm not a sketchup user, but there is a wall conversion setting in the import dialog.

    new macbook pro Hardware advice

    I generally find that making the processor bump isn't worth he investment, that bump is generally costs more than it is worth. RAM, I like RAM, but I haven't investigated the new video cards.
